Metal Fox - Anti-Air Artillery

Submitted by General Frank
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description
The Metal Fox Heavy Anti-Air Artillery Tank was developed under strict secrecy. The vehicle is a nightmare to all enemy air units and infantry units.
The chassis is based of the Grizzly MBT with major changes and modifications and has a very durable armour and protection. It is outfitted with the newest ECM gadgets and tools to prevent the vehicle being scrambled from fire. The main armament is a pair of high-calibre 40mm gattling cannons with precision lasers and depleted U238 HEAT ammo. Although very expensive and only deployable later in battle, the vehicle is worth the investment because it keeps the skies free of enemy units.

21:00, 18th Oct 2010 anarchianbedlam: Yet another absolutely kickass tank. Everything looks great, except the death animation isnt playing properly ingame, there's no explosion or fire or smoke. I dunno if it's suppose to be like that or if something...

    anarchianbedlam: Yet another absolutely kickass tank. Everything looks great, except the death animation isnt playing properly ingame, there's no explosion or fire or smoke. I dunno if it's suppose to be like that or if something got deleted by accident. Anyway, ill take a look at it again on the next update.

    UPDATE: changes made, it's approvable now. I would suggest tightening up the death animation though, it seems like the tank falls apart before it explodes. Oh, and because your using a spawnobject node instead of particle emitters, the death explosion will only show up ingame, but not in magos or the editor. Just a heads up for the others who are a bit confused on that.

    But kickass tank nonetheless. APPROVED

    Ah, sweet, you released it. :)
    Well, I'll check the animations as soon as I get Magos working on this new computer.

    Holy sh*t... :goblin_wtf:

    Wow thats a nasty looking little AA tank! I suppose its the Terran answer to the http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/...dgehog-aav-147865/ "Space Orc Hedgehog AT-AAV?

    I haven't downloaded it yet, but rest assured I will, just looking at it I can't help but give it 5/5, nice work. :thumbs_up:

    Regards,

    Jake

    EDIT AGAIN: I see now, the Icon got rejected because the model itself couldn't be approved, glad to see you fixed that death bug, I'll have to re-download it.

    Review in Magos:

    Mesh

    One of the best Tank meshes ever, but what else do I expect from a General. The details on the gatling, especially the support bracket, are really nice, so are the front lights, aswell as the ammunition retainer. While the frontside of this model totally focus on the immense fire power of the gatlings while showing the orientation to air attack ( radar ), you did a great job on giving the backside a nice layout aswell. Overall the mesh gives the feeling of a fast tank that is able to control not only the air but also be very mobile and fast in use => totally awesome mesh

    Textures

    Let me quote Red Shift here: "A colonel uses custom textures. A general uses ingame textures!" And hell, we should get bored of you always using the tinker texture for all your tanks. WOndering why we do not? Because you do use it in such a great way, that none of your tanks looks like the other but still remind of each other in terms of fitting them. However limiting your texture choice to the tinker texture does not at all give justice to your texture use.
    THe amount and well chosen textures proove that you do know nearly every ingame texture perfectly and knows how to use them. That's just immense and I have to say, great job. Now the wrap: I see no significant flaws here aswell. Nothing looks stretched in anyway!

    Animations

    As always, your animations do look awesome, now going into detail
    About the attack animations I would have loved to see every single gatling fire aswell and not only the combination. But that's just optional.
    Death: Since I only take a look in Magos I cannot say that much about it, but I do know from your other tanks that it is really good.
    Again fitting to your other tanks: The dissipate animation which is still just awesome!
    Nice and useful idea as well concerning the spell animations using the radar!
    The stand animations are great again. The variation is great however I don't see why you only did include the "one-gatling-movement" here and not aswell for the attack anims. My only concenr here is the that in stand 1 the radar moves very quick, maybe slowing him down would look better, especially when lopping the anim.
    Same goes for Walk.
    Overall fitting and good animations!

    Particles

    From what is visible in Magos: Very nice.

    Creativity

    Same as textures. Is the tinker textur overused for your tanks? Is it not creative in anyway? No, it is creative. This mesh is individual, it is very nicely done, but fits your tanks well, too, while still looking individual. I can really imagine this tank on a battlefielt shooting down the air forces of the enemy.

    Overall

    What can I say. We only do have one Dircetor's Cut pack right now. Put your tanks together into a pack and we shall have a second.! This tank is just uberawesome, congratz and plus rep. K THX BYE DUDE!
