23:29, 25th Oct 2013 HappyTauren: It is nice, but you should remove the death animation if it doesn't actually do anything useful to the model (like hiding it or destroying it). Fix this and it's approved. Edit by Kwaliti: Approved. 17:24, 23rd...

    Deolrin: Added rating. I would highly suggest actually bothering to make good, non-basic animations for this model - the concept and mesh are amazing and I would love to rate it more highly, but at the moment, all of the animations are the same floaty business except for "death", which is simplicity itself. Actual, good animations would vastly improve the quality of this model - you may also consider making "Alternate" or "Upgrade First\Second\Third" animations with pre-made effects attached to the top(like glowing spheres of fire\frost\lightning), and maybe even some teamcolor from the naga buildings. All of this may be more suited for an alternate, secondary model, though.

    I'm not certain about this... A floating tower?

    Can the screenshot include some of what you describe it being capable of (attachment wonders)?

    (Unless the screenshot hasn't updated yet...)

    I don't get it. You mean like that trail of vines on the top? I thought you meant, like, for weapons or units or magicky orbs or somesuch.

    Also, the vines are part of the base model.

    Ah, very interesting. I especially like that "flame trap" looking thing; anyway to set the rotation (bone_root)?

    Well, the sfx was designed as frontal breath cone, ie. flamethrower. It follows the rotation of the unit it is attached to.

    The tower doesn't have a proper turret animation atm, However I will add one asap.

    Damn!
    Sir, if you are making a towerdefence map, using this tower model, you can ask me for help with FX at any time. This is realy cool.

    That was the main idea behind this, create a generic tower model that you can stick about anything on top of.
