11:19, 31st Jan 2015 Misha: that's not really the wrap i was expecting to see.. you had a really long piece of black metal in that texture, and you could have wrapped the blade part fully in that area. Heck, even to the rivets it has.. I'm setting...

    I guess I can endure (and you can endure) a handle of 9 slices? I can't go to less than that.

    humm.. here's something.. your sword is really facing the wrong way, which means you should rotate the sword so the blade tip is pointing in the direction where handle is now.
    the model itself is not placed in the right way to be held, which means the handle center of the handle should be in the very center of the grid. that way the units will be able to hold it by the handle

    one other thing, i noticed that the area where the hand guard is, is strangely twisted to one side, while it should be more/less parallel with the handle, same with the sword tip. and for last, the wrap of left side of the blade, doesn't match well with the right side of the blade..

    EDIT: also, name your animation 'Stand' and give it a duration from 100-1000, for an example.. the viewer is not loading your model because of that (you can edit the animation in the model editor's 'sequence editor')

    You have forgot to change the internal name. The download is currently named "name".

    So... what else should I do now to the sword? Apart from wrapping it in Milkshape which I am not to fond to start making it...

    It's looking better, but what's up with the blood gutter being off-center? It has to end at the point of the sword! That also brings out the matter of the blade being off-center, which I never noticed before.

    Anyway, after you fix those two issues, this will definitely be approve-able, you've come a long way with it.

    What's a blood gutter? You just broke my english barrier with that word....
    The blade is of centeted because attachments require that the handle is in the center of mass, I checked it on WE and it works fine (the units take the sword from the handle as they should do) or are you refering to something else?

    The blood gutter is the indentation in the center of a blade, from the hilt to the tip, used to allow blood to flow through it which makes pulling your sword out of someone easier. On your model, the blood gutter is off-center.

    And you completely misunderstood when I said the blade is off-center, I wasn't talking about its placement in relation to the center of mass, I was talking about in relation to the handle; your blade should go straight out from the handle. With that type of sword, the handle is just a dull, round end of the blade, it's one single piece, with the hilt then attached to it; that's how they're made. With your blade being off-center from the hilt it just doesn't look right; rotate it a bit until it's a straight 180 degree line from the end of the hilt to the end of the blade.

    You don't know how many times I already tried to center that.

    But I will rotate the blade as best as I can...
