Falchion

Submitted by Red
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A simple one-handed Falchion sword; a sturdy and fearsome battle weapon used for chopping through armor with nearly as much power as an axe.

As always, no need to ask permission to do small model edits like scaling (Could likely be scaled up a bit for 2-handed use), rotation, and translation; though be sure and follow Hive guidelines by giving me credit if you use the model in your map.

Thanks for looking and let me know what ya think!

    The simplicity and detail-grade is what your models/textures really mark Red. Awesome job.

    This looks pretty good, but again, the file size QQ. I know you love making textures, but it's completely unnecessary for models like these, kicks the file size through the roof. You could easily have made this with in-game textures.

    I'm going to have to give it a 4/5. I thought about 5 for a moment, but the file size is too high; the quality isn't quite good enough to justify importing it.

    I dont agree with you at all. Many reasons so let me say them:
    1.Big file size: it is only because of the texture and its quality can be lowed if someone really care about 20 kb less(I do not at all).
    2.Using in game textures: we allready have plenty swords that uses in game texture and their quality is zero comparing with this sword. I like texture so much.

    AGAIN: If you dont like models with custom texture, high size models, big poly count and all that make model detailed, dont rate them. If somone want to use custom textures it means he is tired of using in game textures. So you are not created for this kind of models and stick to the area you like. I really like when I see to someone create detaied model with high poly and custom texture, and I am always ready to sacriface few kb for my project in resourse is good.

    If nobody rated things they didn't like, everything would have inflated ratings that make them look better than they actually are. Which is one of the main reasons searching with a rating threshold isn't actually effective.

    File size is a very important part of models. It is important to encourage the most efficient as possible file size to quality ratio because we are limited on how much we can import. When you can make a 5-10kb attachment with the same quality, why import something 50-100kb? Using custom textures for something that in-game textures could do is a waste of file size. You should only use custom textures for things that in-game textures can't already achieve.

    I'm not against custom textures. I like a good custom model and texture. But this texture isn't necessary; there are in-game textures that could achieve the same effect, and the custom texture in this case doesn't look any better than in-game ones.

    That's my opinion, and my rating is for me to decide, not you. Who are you to tell me what to rate?

    It's not like I was trolling with a 1/5. I gave him a 4/5 for frick's sake.

    It's an attachment. If somebody is using attachments for equipment, they're usually going to need LOTS of imports for all of their items. When there are things of equal or greater quality with significantly less file size, that's going to impact the rating.

    I gave it a 4/5. The moderator also gave this a 4/5, and I don't see people flooding the moderator with complaints about his rating.

    Quality and file size are both very important. Anyone can make a 2kb model that looks like crap, and anybody can make a 100kb attachment that looks good. The skill is in making something look good compared to its file size. If you make something with a huge file size and expect a 5/5, you'd better make it look more than just good; it would have to look amazing enough to be worth importing with such a size. In this case, the sword doesn't look amazing. It looks good. It's not bad; I don't hate it, I even gave it a 4/5. But I don't think it's worth a 5/5, and my rating is mine to make. Mind your own business.

    If I get one more complaint from spoiled brats who can't handle anything lower than a 5/5, I'm going to do absolutely nothing to change my rating, because the more you complain, the more you show how I shouldn't care about what you have to say. After all, you're not respecting my freedom to have my own opinion and rate things what I want to rate them.

    You've never made equipment attachments before, so I guess you don't know much about appropriate attachment file sizes, but since an attachment is not a full-size animated unit model, it is not appropriate for it to have a file size comparable to a unit. And in the event of having such a file size, it needs to be impressive enough to justify such file size. There have been plenty of high file size models that I've rated a 5/5, but that is because they were amazing. 5/5 means amazing. It doesn't mean "i kind of like it". If it's not amazing enough to be worth the file size, then it's not getting a 5/5.

    Let me explain ratings to you, since you, along with most of the people around here, don't seem to understand.

    1/5 means reject. The average person's work is a 1/5, because the majority of people don't have any approved work. That's not a bad thing, it just means that here at hiveworkshop, we have higher standards. Even skilled resource makers have had things rejected at first.

    2/5 means acceptable, but still kind of low. This is better than the average person. Most people need a practice before they can even achieve such a rating.

    3/5 means the average model on hiveworkshop. Being able to produce 3/5 work makes you much more than the average person, because the average person can't get 3/5's from moderators on their models. If you get a 3/5, you're doing very well, because 3/5 is average acceptable, and it has to be good for that.

    4/5 means great. You have to be way better than the average to get a 4/5 when you're competing with other people who are good at what they do. I gave this resource a 4/5, which is a pretty darn good rating.

    5/5 means amazing/incredible. Moderators don't give these out very often. Sometimes their awarding of a 5/5 even includes efficient file size as part of their reasoning. Normal users, however, rate almost everything a 5/5. If it's of acceptable quality, they seem to think it automatically deserves a 5/5.

    When you throw out 5/5's so easily, they lose their meaning. People start expecting a 5/5, and if they get any lower, they think there's something wrong, because suddenly 5/5 becomes the standard. And when they get a 5/5, it doesn't even mean anything, they don't get the massive sense of accomplishment anymore, because in today's hive, anything can get a 5/5 user rating.

    I gave this a 4/5 because after much consideration, that is what I decided it deserved. If you can't accept that, I don't give a rat's bottom, because it's my rating, not yours.
