NecroStronghold

Submitted by HappyTauren
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A model I made out of boredom, 2358 triangles. (the compact version has 1670) It's a tad high, but I don't think it's that horrible. There are two versions included, one is more precise according to the concept, and longer, another one is a compact version, more usable in warcraft III (it's more square). If you're going to comment, test it in game, as viewers don't make particles right (magos turns X and Y, wc3 viewer makes them HUGE). If you use it in your map, leave credits to TotallyAwesome/HappyTauren and WILLTHEALLMIGHTY for awesome particle effects :D
Special thanks to Mechanical Man for providing me HOMM5 references and inspiring me to make a compact version, and Dan Van Ohllus for notifying me to fix a small error in the animated texture.

    Dear Lord that is a sextacular model. The mesh is amazing and the use of ingame textures is incredible. I would rate it a directors cut just for that. It doesn't have any animations and while that would be cool, it is not necessary since it really is more for cinematics. My only qualm about this model is the particle count... which is OFF THE CHARTS! 608 particle saturation is ridiculous for such a kickass model. There are ways of reducing particle saturation while keeping the nice effect. otherwise 5/5

    I'd love to hug you, HappyTauren!
    Your undead models and this building are outstanding. Right now I'm working on a RPG/action map involving the undead storyline. Your powerlich and other models suit it perfectly. Will give you credit in top 5 (this is a huge singleplayer map with many models).
    May I ask you to create more of those ^^ ?

    HappyTauren, This is Awesome! But, the Birth and Death Animation is just too plain, you can make the death animations like the pillars fell (all and together to make it easier) the the front part fell to the ground then the rest fall into the ground. Btw, 5.1/5 for the Awesome Model. <3

    Really good work HT :)
    i am a bit concerned with that glow.....

    if you intended to keep it that way then it's ok, but if not then wrap better that texture :)
