Also known as the Übertank. The model was made for the first Paired Modeling\Texturing Contest here at the Hive, also known as 'TAGTEAM BITCHFEST 3000', by me and l0w_kwaliti. We entered under the team name 'Green Quality'.
HUGE thanks, of course, to l0w_kwaliti, for pretty much making this model real. Without his help it would be a complete and utter piece of crap. He helped me out a lot with the model during its creation, taught me a lot I didn't know about modeling and pretty much 'made the dream possible'. And of course, not to forget the über
textures he's made for the model!
I'd also like to thank TurieL and his Rifleman Elite
model for inspiring me in the first place, before I joined with l0w_kwaliti for the Paired Modeling\Texturing contest. I think his model is one of the best ones around. It's got it's own 'charm' while still being Warcraft 3-like.
The model contains a completely optional
external portrait model, featuring the Tank's pilot, which contains a talking animation. You are in no way required to use this external portrait and its accompanying texture, 'EliteSiegeEnginePortrait.blp', as the model features an internal portrait featuring a slightly zoomed-out view on the tank itself. For those who wish to preserve a low file-size in their maps, it is recommended NOT to import "EliteSiegeEngine_Portrait.mdx" and "EliteSiegeEnginePortrait.blp". For those who still have plenty of file-size left to use, however, it is recommended to use the external portrait file as its quality is higher and it is more fitting for a hero unit.
Also included is a version without Hero Glow which can be used a unit rather than a hero. Decay and Dissipate animations are both included!
If you use this model, you must credit Kwaliti / l0w_kwaliti. I do not require credits, but it would be nice to include me in you credit list if you use this model. (However, crediting Kwaliti is a must
). If you modify the model, please let me know in a PM! Do not modify the texture without Kwaliti's direct permission. Please do not upload this model on any other site.
Also! If you use this model in your project, be sure to also use one (or both) of these awesome icons made by Mr.Goblin:
