Heavy Bomber

Submitted by purparisien
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The Gotha G.V was a heavy bomber used by the Luftstreitkräfte during World War I. Designed for long-range service, the Gotha G.V was used principally as a night bomber. This model can be used as bomber unit for world war 1 map.

The model is Team colored.

The Machine Gun comes from HerrDave Maxim Model

Model works in-game and performs well. A nice WW1-inspired model and good use of in-game textures. Good job.

    You don't see planes like this every day... Well made and rightfully amazing in concept. I do feel like it could use more animations - such as flames when damaged - or Explosion(s) upon death - perhaps making it split into pieces on 'impact' as a form of second variation death. Many things can be added still ^^

    There are several issues with the model:
    - The model should disappear at the end of the decay animation.
    - The model should have a collision shape.
    - You might want to add a proper background portrait plane
    - Remove the unused assets in the model.

    Please fix the issues above.

    YEEEEEEH
    WW1 BOMBER
    Could you make a WW2 bomber as well ? There's so few which are Team-colored, lightweighted and animated.

    The model itself looks great, however, the animations need some work IMO as posted before:
    Some Stand and Walk variations would be nice too. I also feel like the gun moves too slowly while firing.

    Additionally, the plane hangs in the air while decaying instead of crashing to the ground. It should fall lower in the death animation, and decay adjusted accordingly. Alternatively have it explode instead.
    Unless there are object editor settings that need to be changed? In that case, maybe add a note to the OP?

    The rotors sometimes snap back into place when changing animations. This is normal in WC3, but in this case it could possibly be fixed by having the rotor movement in a global animation instead.

    The icon could use a little bit of polish too, it looks a bit pixelated right now.
