Jackal

Submitted by Fingolfin
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I just decided to redo my jackal model entirely and ended up with far better results than i had expected. I just figured it was about time i made justice to the halo attachments that have been lying around useless here for the last two years. :)

Attachment points:

head
chest
origin
hand left (shield)
hand right
weapon (for muzzle flashes, see below)
foot right
foot left

Weapons to go with this:

Plasma Pistol

Carbine

Needler

Plasma Shield

I also uploaded missiles for all theese. In the respective weapon threads, i uploaded individual muzzle flashes and instructions on how to use them. I chose not to add a built-in muzzle flash on this model since that would restrict it to a single weapon attachment. There are also sound effects to use in the missile threads for ultimate halo experience.

I might add "defend" animations for this model in the future for those of you who wants to use it with that spell, but it is a lot of work and wil take some more time for me. The model currently huddles down behind his shield by default, and i was planning to make a system for making the shield absorb damage from attacks coming from the front. I will also make a "spell slam" animation for it where it flies away from an explosion, to be used with knockbacks etc.I also made teamcolor for this, but i was not able to make the body material blend (it obscured the hair which is also blended for render range), hence it looks a bit sharp. If you want to make skins for this, the entire body save for the head and hair supports TC.

    Well, they aren't very visible, especially in Wc3 birds eye view. I don't mind the eye colour, just darken the outline of the eyeball and maybe the pupil.

    Wow this is an amazing model, :D.

    But would their be an animation where there is no shield? Because the shield does get destroyed at some point...

    That is why both the shield and weapons are attachments, you can add or remove them whenever you want. The shield will automatically die when the jackal does, also.

    I posted instructions on how to attach the shield in it's thread.

    Great! My favorite Covenant unit ever! (aside from the Skirmisher subspecies) Only thing I find odd is the face, and those eyes. But noting the Halo 1 Jackal, this looks better, and wrcraft textures can be a pain to work with, detail-wise. So, well done! :D

    Go jackals :3

    What do you mean?
    Textures were made by me.

    Or perhaps you mean ground tile?

    Is that a challenge? :D

    No, but seriously, it can be done. You gotta know some jass though.

    EDIT: I would personally do it using a knockback system. Assuming that you have triggered the plasma grenade spell, just pick all units within it's blast radius the moment it lands (the grenade will take a couple of seconds to blow), and if (random chance = 75%) then knock them back from the grenade and play the animation where they throw themselves (you would have to turn the model so that it faces the right direction).

    That's a pretty damn good idea.
