Naga Brute Pack (WoW)

This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
Ported by me upon a request by pm; credits to Blizzard.

Special thanks to Mr Ogre man for adding team colors and for detecting and fixing a bug in the Stand animation while he was at it.

Update 10/2/20: Added swim animations and two recolors with screenshot icons.

Update 10/3/20: Uploaded Mr Ogre man's team color addition, along with his preview screenshot. Also I made the jaw not stick out awkwardly in the Stand 2 animation.

I know it is a WoW model, but the textures are still too ugly. Put next to the Reforged Naga and it looks bad.

I don't know how I would do that. You'd have to find a way to add some component onto the model that can be given the replaceable color, and then it would probably be a bad fit with the HD part of the model.
I don't know how replaceable textures are done, but the orange fins would be the ideal place for TC.

Maybe wrap a simple set of bracers around his arms and TC them?
If I do that, the difference in quality between the HD part and the bracers would look pretty bad.

It might be possible, but I don't know how to do TC as a recolor while retaining original texture. And if I just replaced the fin texturing with solid TC it would look terrible.
Odd quirk, but this big boy doesn't have swim or submerge animations. I understand its because its a WoW rip, though. I wonder how hard/easy it would be to jury-rig one in? IDK, it isn't game breaking.
WoW does have walk swim, stand swim, and death swim animations for the big boy, but I don't know if it's worth increasing the file size to add them. He looks like a land-dwelling naga to me :p

Does WC3 support transparancy and multi-layer textures? If so the original fins colour could be edited to be semi-transparent, and be placed ontop of a TC layer.

You could always add a second clone variant with the swimming animations for those that would like it, giving the alternate between swimming or land only lower filesize.

I've added some team colour to the spikes. The fins can't be coloured because they already have transparency, so I had to tweak the .blp to add an alpha channel and team colour.

Now all we need is the BTN and DisBTN icons.



Credits to BardBord for the rigging and to Blizzard for the model, obviously.

Changelog:

-Updated the textures and added Team Colour to the 3 models.
-Fixed Stand-2 animation (origin was off from stand-1, so the model did a little "jump" after finishing the stand-2 sequence).



Bugs/Comments:
-The model still lacks a corpse. I may do it soon-ish.
-The models may require some extra love to make them different from each other (bigger spikes, coral shoulderpads...). Again, not that hard and I may do it soon.

To add the team colour, just change the .mdx and .blp paths to these ones. The names are the same, and the portrait doesn't have team colour anyway.

Great! I updated the bundle.

The model still lacks a corpse. I may do it soon-ish.
When/if you get around to this, tell me and together we'll make this compete for the position of Most Frequently Updated Model on Hive. :D

(bigger spikes, coral shoulderpads...)
Not sure about this; I think it would be best to leave without adding new components. If you want, you could post an attachments model separately and I can link it in the description.

Good question. I don't know how many of the people using this model want it for reforged. It may be best to just leave it as is, since adding a corpse is relatively easy to do on one's own. I don't want glow for this model, as I expect it will mostly be used as a non-hero unit.

Nagas lack heroes, though, so maybe someone wants to have this one. If anyone needs it, I can do it in an afternoon.

Btw, how do you rigg wow models? I've been trying to with cascviewer and cascexplorer but to no avail (I can only see lists of random numbers and letters, not models). I've been able to extract .blps from Heroes of the Storm, tho, but I'm completely lost with wow models.

I can't upload through the inbox (I guess it's because I'm new here), so here's the models you asked (both warden and maiev):


Have fun!
