Footman Cavalry

Submitted by wingednosering
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Hello all! I've back from a while away bearing a new model!

This model is based off of my Alliance Cavalry model. I've used player feedback to alter it into a replacement for the human knight as requested by several users. I've managed to bring back some things that previously had to be removed because of the poly count size (notice the plume :p) and added armour to the crummy-looking horse.

You'll notice that it has no weapon. I decided to leave it this way so that people could add their own weapons via the "hand, left" attachment.

Let me know if you find any problems with it.

[Update]: I've fixed the dissipate animation issue. His chest will no longer disappear during the animation.

[Update #2]: The model was crashing games, because of a mistake I made with the Geoset Animations. It seems to be working fine now and I gave it Decay Flesh and Bone animations instead of Dissipate.

[Update #3]: Improved the wrap around the horse's head, back legs, and tail. Tried to make his legs look a little better. Added a stomach to him, and made his plume team-coloured. Removed the spikes and canged the horse's helmet's horns.

[Final Update]: The horse's head is no longer hollow.

Also, why are the back of its legs black? You should also fix the normals on the bit hanging down in the front below the horse's neck.

    Pyritie: MUCH better. However you forgot the bit underneath the head though. Might want to add something there.

    Pyritie: Changes made, resource approved :D

    Wow this model is very impressive, the animations are really smooth and nice.

    But he has no shoes, i looked at it in the magos editor...Its not a big thing, its more a little detail, thats missing ^^

    Oh and, is there an attachment point at the hand? I mean, he attacks without any weapon, so there should be an attachment point to give him at least a little sword.

    Emm-a-: It has an attachment for adding weapons. "Hand, Left". If you want to add an effect to the attached weapon, use "Weapon" As for the feet, have you looked at Blizzards mounted units? None of them have feet either :p. Thought I'd keep this guy consistent and save myself some polies hehe.

    Cockroach: Can you explain the bug please?

    Also forgot to mention the tools I used. As usual a special thanks to the makers of Oinkerwinkle's Tools and Magos' Model Editor. I still ended up doing all animation changes through Notepad (I really need some tools! -_-).

    The excellent model, the truth of a sword is not present, it is bad.

    :/ this model is odd. I like the design and overall, it looks good. But (as mentioned above) he has no shoes, he has no eyes, he doesnt have a sword and part of his body disappears during the dissipate animation while some parts of his body are still visible. Overall, this model seems very unfinished to me, (like someone stopped making it before they finished) a 2/5 Lacking from me, because it does seem to be "lacking" some things

    but most of it seems easy to fix, so it should be approvable in no time

    As mentioned above, the feet and weapon were left out on purpose. I decided to let people attach weapons to the "Left, Hand" attachment. That way, you could make him use a spear, sword, halberd, axe, whatever you want...or if you feel like giving him upgrades you could make his weapon change each time the user does a certain upgrade for him.
    The feet were left out because they are unnecessary polies. It's hard to notice the lack of feet in game and if you take a look at Blizzard's in-game mounted units, many of them lack feet too.

    I'm fixing the dissipate thing now and updating it later today. To be perfectly honest, I didn't even notice it until you guys pointed it out o_O.

    [Edit]: Just updated the model. I hope a mod takes a look at this soon, it's been 3 and a half days now :S.

    Well.. You should have left his shoes on.. What would you say if someone didn't let you have your shoes on you? Or if they gave you a purple one, or a pink one.

    looks like you took the human campaign screen footman and put him on a horse, but still awesome.

    This looks as a nice and very useful model :) The missing feet is hard to see in-game yes and the weapon isnt there on purpose which i think is good because i like to give units weapons i choose myself :)

    Why not just use the regular footman texture? I think youd get a better result.

    EDIT: Actually the model looks pretty great. 5/5
    ADD A WEAPONN!

    I'm going to give this a 5/5 rating if you do these changes:

    -Moar team colour.
    -Add hero glow or remove dissipate animation. That's pretty dumb, I seen this on models of the most renowned modellers and I would never use a model with such a big flaw. At least for me.
    -His feets aren't a real problem, but if you could add them, it would be more nice.

    Leave him weaponless, that gives a great chance of personalization :)
    Good job anyway, fix these things and that's going to get a full 5/5.

    Hmm... I do agree, Leeroy. With the leaving him weaponless. But yes his feet are missing boots. Give him that and he will be good to go. 3/5 until you fix the boots.
