    all of them, that crude and simple.

    Well is not that much which was needed, just some HI IK solvers, a controller for each limb and the IK Solver Targets for each.

    Vermillion, Ballistic... Both are really coming along. I'm glad to see such progress.

    Oh, don't worry. I may (have) be(en) joking, but I wouldn't really call you out as a copy-cat. The original idea sounded closer to Sin'dorei's, is all. What you've got now is definitely different.

    Though I must ask; in what ways it is different from the in-game Guldan/Warlock model? Granted it's been a while since I played TFT, so I'm probably missing something simple, but...

    I've redone a number of the animations, and tried to add texture effects in.

    Pastebin

    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/pastebin.php?id=l67zhc

    The fact that Magos refuses to register ingame textures frustrates me. Considering all the hoops I have to jump through just to do the simplest things in Magos, I don't know how its going to turn out for the rest of you.

    Also, just pointing this out, but animations with the 'One' tag, are optional, and simply there for variety, when I submit it publically.

    The same happened to me when I bought my new PC and moved to Win7. It was back in 2011, but Magos has not received any updates since then (AFAIK), so yea.

    Putting magos to War3's main folder solved the issue though, you should give it a try.

    I suggest you change those slashes meshes, for ribbon emitters, it will look more natural.

    Btw at the end, you used 3dsmax for animating or you used mdlVis?

    Although the textures look detailed, they also look a little monotonous.

    I would have used ribbon emitters but they are more wasteful, and I have already done something similar with ribbon emitters so I wanted to see if I can make it with meshes.
    I haven't had time to learn enough 3dsmax for now, so I used mdlVis.

    So I may have fixed the ingame texture problems, and Magos is finally showing team color. This makes everything alot easier, and means I'll be able to tweak more things more often.

    Anyway, I've been hoping to get some feedback on the reworked animations, and placeholder particles.


    Also, that Shaman looks really nice. Definitely a top 3 model.

    @ Chen Stormstout,
    Well... You can try making a;
    1) Tuskarr Warchief (a mix between a Tuskarr and a Beastmaster)
    2) Draenei/Lost One Reaver (a mix between a Draenei/Lost One and a Demon Hunter)
    3) Sea Titan (a mix between a Sea Giant and a Sunken Ship)
    4) Super Critter (A super-powered critter, what else can I say...)
    5) Infernal Decepticon (an Infernal Cannon capable of morphing into a Decepticon)

    Why not make a Golem? or some kind of mechanical Infernal? We don't see many of those.

    I am now working for a Tauren Runemaster. But good idea for the lost one draenei, i forgot draenei is my favorite race. But if I fail making the runemaster' I'll try what you have said

    A Lost One Reaver, what a cool idea. That may be a better idea than the Runemaster.

    I have two questions:

    1.It is needed to submit an icon for the model?
    2.It is ok to accept idea from the others?

    Make a worgen/wolf hero. Plenty of options for that since there aren't a large amount of hive.

    So, I've just been lulling around waiting on a few more suggestions or criticisms, before I either finalized the model or reworked some of the animations.

    The model's damage points are at about 500(0.5) however the damage points of the Attack Throw is 750 that will be noticeable ingame, you are going to hear a whack and than see the hero hit the unit, you should try to fix that.
    His feet look so tiny.
    Make the TC stones and his eye shiny.
    You have no movement speed applied to the walk animation.
    You have used a very high poly sphere to make the eye.
