This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

Screenshots hardly do this justice; you should see it in action. The shot swoops around the caster from behind, focusing in front and spiraling forward as it travels. The impact animation also swirls outward.

It's best used at 500-900 missile speed.

Credit when used is not required, but appreciated. Modification is permitted.

Awsome model.

OFFTOPIC:

How can i make those GIFs? :thumbs_up:

EZ way - you download a program that can record part of your background or game, just a rectangular selection you drag and you save it as a gif.

Hard way - you record it with fraps, extract the images frm the video, cut each image the same resolution and combine the pics in a gif using Gimp/photoshop. That's how I do it.

The ribbon remember the movement of the Observer(protoss unit from starcraft) and the death animation remember the hit effect of the protoss shield. (too much protoss for just ice)
Awesome job!

nice but mangos can't open it because "Unknown tag "KRAL" in Ribbon Ermitter" :(
Strange, because there is no such tag in the source .mdl (which was converted to .mdx using MdlxConv).

Could you tell me if the attached model opens? (In this one, I gave every object a unique ID, which I failed to do in the approved model, and which doesn't seem to be a problem for WC3.)
