21:07, 30th Sep 2014 MiniMage: The filesize is still pretty large, but efforts were made to cut it down as much as possible, so I got no reason to complain. The animations are smooth and the mesh is well made. The death animation is beautiful. Approved.

    I'd probably approve this if he could shave off a few kilobytes. At least getting it down to 300-400
    I would assume that the textures is what takes the most of the filesize anyhow. So it should probably be a possibility.

    Optimizing the model itself might also lower the filesize somewhat.

    I've shaved off 70KB. I'm not willing to go any lower due to degradation in visual quality.
    Also, is high texture quality even a valid reason for rejection?

    Totally.

    I've already made two. If I were to create a third one, it would be built in Unity.

    AAWWWW YEEAAAHHH!! The legend is BACK!

    Your animation skills have really developed since the last tank. I like how you have incorporated a lot of motion into it, looks like a professional job.

    About the death anim though, is it physics generated or hand made?

    EDIT: On a technical note, you have two instances of the track texture, which is a bit redundant. The reason the exporter does this is because one of them is set to wrap width and height (tiling) while the other is not. This is something you could fix.

    This is the most well done tank that I've ever seen for Warcraft 3.

    Thanks for sharing this to us.
