Greetings,

This is my first animated model enjoy. In general this model is a raw resource gathering point, and it's design to work as the night elf entangle mine or the undead haunted mine, yet it has enough animations to be a stand alone building.

  • Mesh: almost completely from scratch.
  • Textures: only ingame textures.
  • Animations: all custom, (Birth, Stand, Stand Work, and Death)
  • Particles: 3 (1 at Birth,1 at Stand Work, and 1 at Death)
  • Attachment Points: beside the classic ones (overhead, sprite first, sprite second) I have added two more generic attachment points named (head and chest).
    The interesting part about this new attachment points is that they are ment to be used to show what resource the mine is producing. The head attachment point is fixed at the exit of the building, and the chest attachment point moves along with the ore-wagon (only shows up when the wagon is returning in the Stand Work animation).

Change Log
  • First Submission
  • Edit 1:
    • Centered attachment point. (not only the screenshot).
    • Make everything disappears at the end of death animation.
  • Edit 2:
    • Added to event objects. (1 ubersplat and 1 death sound)
    • Added three particle emitters. (1 for birth anim, 1 for work anim, and 1 for death anim)



Special thanks/credits

  • Frankster: for his awesome Opal Gem Model that I used in the screenshot to test the (head) attachment point.
  • Frankster: for his continues review of the model, pushing me to do a better work.

Frankster [img]: Good variation of the standard mine model. Works in-game and performs properly. Approved.

    3/5. Looks kind of chaotic.
