Haunted castle

Submitted by Mechanical Man
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
And old abandoned haunted castle or a holiday estate. Could be both.

Finally gave it animation after years of no use. Sadly, this time I didn't come up with a lore or a dedication.

A bit too many polygons, but eh quality is astounding and very very good. Works in-game. Approved.

    How about a Northrend version? With snow on the roof and everything that applies to it.

    Very nice model. If you can, make death animation not instant dissappear the castle.

    Good stuff however the Model Viewer seems to not differentiate Stand from Stand 2. I guess it should have something to do with the iron gate.
    Could add more hauntiness.
    4.5/5.

    I like this, but the texture of the courtyard looks stretched and doesn't fit very well. The stairs also have obvious repetition to them.

    This looks good in game. I like its warcraft style. Texture issues are negligible in my opinion.
    It's suitable for a doodad or neutral building. I might have a use for it.

    I really like this - good quality work. I would use this for my map if you add tiers.

    Courtyard isn't so noticeable at first glance, so I left it with maybe less detailed texture. But I needed to use something to make it more creepy. I didn't get that thing about the stairs though.

    Interesting idea. You can put rocking cage with skeleton on the wall of upper tower to make it more scary.

    Good model. I am using it for my next map update 8.5 of my map Realm of Nosgoth. I am using it for the castle of William the Just (Blood Omen story).

    A question. I used the Haunted Castle model with a elevator base destructible doodad. I noticed that in some angles when I bring a unit it seems invisible. I made the castle big like 6 times the normal size. Is there a function in the world editor I have to change relating to sight?
