    Despite this outburst. The rules have not changed, If you disagree with these rules you have every right to resign. Please go about your model making, i hope to see some good models at the end of this contest, good luck to you all.

    EDIT: it would appear as though mr.bob has deleted his post for some reason, regardless, please be aware of this incident. Everything that has been done so far has been done to ensure healthy competition, despite what some may say.

    Please enjoy the competition.

    I tried to be as politically correct as possible. Then you got mad at me in chat, so I thought I was doing a favor by deleting it. D:

    Not sure how it's an outburst. D: I never asked you to change the rule
    either. I was just wondering about some of the reasons given.

    I never really expected you to change the rule. None of the rules make me mad. Just confused. And, maybe a bit annoyed. Not flat out mad though.

    What does make me mad, is things like this, "Despite this outburst." and this "it would appear as though mr.bob has deleted his post for some reason, regardless, please be aware of this incident." Please do not twist what I say. It can be very agitating.

    Needless to say, I will never EVER ask about contest rules ever again. Like, ever. Had no idea it would stir up this much crap. Sorry. D:

    Completely redesigned the tank. Big thanks to FrIkY for an awesome concept art + a Spore version of something similar to the tank. After all, it was he who made me change my idea and make this. Say hi to Infernal Rocket Tank, Mk. 2.

    Note that it still needs lots of work: The back is completely bare, there are just not enough spiky stuff on this to be considered a demonic tank and it's completely unanimated. I plan on adding lots of other stuff and I would appreciate any form of criticism or generally helpful comments.

    Debode, that's really cool. Most of all I especially like that it's WC3 themed :)

    Made some treads, good ol' rusty tanks are the best.

    Ooh, that's awesome. The texture is top-notch. I think you could add an extra wheel or two somewhere there. Also, the outlines on the texture are very fat in some places.

    debode, good looking wip so far, it is promising but i think that it does need a little bit more, try giving it more teamcolor segments, or maybe make the tread a bit taller, something to kind of fill up the empty space.

    Infinitynexus, o_O holycrap, that looks friggin awesome! please tell me you're going to finish your submission, because the custom texture looks amazing so far :D

    The outline is just the fade out alpha for the screenshot, not the texture.

    New WIP, done making and wrapping the armor pieces.

    I estimate the finished model will be around 900-1000 polies, tops.

    Currently using a 512x512 texture, tanks got a lot of surface area, so 256x256 felt constrained.

    Umm....guys, what are you using to open mdx files in 3ds max 6 or later? I tried Blinkboy's scripts, but I'm not sure how it works.

    Anyway, these are my evil plans :mwahaha: :

    I now am convinced that you will win.

    The mesh isn't even that great. It's the texture. Plus, it's that same old tank design, and somehow, you made it look awesome.

    Very lovely integration of the treads there, sir. Most other things in this comp are disjointed lumps stuck to a box. The weaponry better be up to the standaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard!
