Direhorn / Triceratops

Submitted by Hayate
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

When was the last time I submit a model again? :V It's time to give thunderlizard and kodobeast a friend. Presenting Grass Muncher-Direhorn / Triceratops-the raptor lunch. in Warcraft using In-game texture. I will most likely use this guy to make some Zandalari Troll's model, but here I release the Direhorn now for you guys because I haven't even started to make those yet.

Comes in three color, Red, Teal and Green

Some Fancy Name suggestion
Green: Forest Direhorn
Red: Dragon Direhorn
Teal: Direhorn

The greater direhorn can be use as adult direhorn while the original can be used as baby direhorn.
Useful as extra neutral creep or mount it with trolls.

Special thanks for Herrdave to make me that Ingame screenshot.

Be sure to give credit to me and...
Have fun and enjoy your prehistoric bacon^^

Changelog: 3/1/2018: Minor tweaking on the animation, added greater direhorn.

Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section.

    maaan that's amazing, especially when you use in-game only textures!, maybe consider to make troll direhorn rider too?

    What does the rider’s role should be? I have no idea what does a rider on a direhorn should do

    (Weapons and stuff)

    I thought we talked about this.... :thinking:

    Well, it depends entirely on what you think this guy will be used for. Hero? Unit? Support? Assault? Caster?

    Personally it seems more like a warrior than anything else, which makes me think of a big polearm & shield... or a special 'cat-o-nine-tails' whip... Or a big nasty club with chunks of obsidian jutting out... Or an 'atlatl' (special javelin-thrower that could allegedly punch through a horse)

    For armor/decoration, perhaps a motley assortment of armor plates, maybe a cool headdress, maybe a bone throne (;P)... Definitely some skulls.

    I tried this in-game, the model looks great, but it has a few flaws concerning animation:
    -The beak keeps clipping during talk animations in unit portrait.
    -The walking animation doesn't correspond with the model at all. I'm assuming you use the orc raider, but the dinosaur looks heavy and it looks out of place to see it jump like a bunny.
    -The model size is too small, it should be 20-30% larger to fit in line with Thunder Lizards in the game. This might not sound important, but it affects how big buffs look on the unit models in-game.
    I think because of this i probably won't use the model and i could see people using this model if they desparetely need dinosaur models. In it's current state it's just not up to par with normal WC3 models.

    The screenshot shows a side by side comparison with a level 6 thunder lizard with the same scaling.
