SandElemental

Submitted by icewolf055, MiniMage
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
It's a Sand Elemental Hero that the OaD group requested from me for their map.
I was promised to get terrain in return, but they wouldn't fulfill their end of the bargain. Granted, they did a little, but nowhere near what they had promised.

So I'm releasing it to the public. Because it would be a waste to just archive it.
Used a couple pieces from icewolf055's Shadow Elemental, with his permission.

And hey, it turned out quite nice in my opinion.
Uses only ingame textures, so it's easy to import. ;P

Edit: Fixed an error where the lower part of the sand elemental didn't show.
Hopefully it should be fixed. If you guys come across an error or somehting again, please let me know.

Edit x2: Tweaked the shading of the helmet. Hopefully, I wont have to do more tweaks. XD

Edit x3: Lowered the amount of particle emitters as requested by Misha. Tweaked the helmet a little bit more.

Edit x4: Death sound has been added. Went with the ObsidianAvengerDeath sound.
Tweaked the death animation so that his sand wont flip up like a cone. ;P

    Sexy :). If you're still up for trading terrain for a model, I'm up to doing it.

    Eh sure. I wouldn't mind another trade. However, the game rules are changed.
    I want to see terrain done first, not the other way around as it has been like before. XD

    Alright mate, what do you need? PM me with the specifics and the constraints - e.g. can I import models, if I can, what is the max size which I can occupy with them.

    huh? cool.. lemme check it

    EDIT: so.. there's a funky issue when you view the helmet from backwards, it turns dark. also helmet and chest plate are a little bit indistinguishable from the sandy body.. so, maybe you should make the armor pieces not have the flowing animation at all. also for the same reason maybe the body could use a different sandy texture. now the particles are really spammy and i'm sure they can be done just as great with the particle count being under or at 100. color of the particles doesn't match well either.. but i just love the arm bracers and their TC

    so.. there's my review

    Looks awesome, although I would have liked it better would the upper part of the arms be a little larger.

    Fixed the helmet. The chest plate and armor in general is intended to be almost indistinguishable though. As it is a sand elememental, it's armor is sand stone, crafted from the sand elemental itself. ;P
    A lot of inspiration was from the genie guy from Aladdin and from the earth and storm elemental from Heroes 3. ;P

    Looking pretty cool, although can you add some mesh (I think is the right word) to the bottom of the model.
    When it goes higher then the terrain the bottom is shard. It's ugly :\

    hmm.. tough question.. rock golem death sound is kinda okay-ish? but the rock golem 'pissed' sounds are totally what this elemental needs for a death sound..

    would be even possible to use 'pissed' sounds? Oo

    Went with the obsidian avenger death sound. Btw, there really isn't that much particles used for this model. I am just using a event spawn object and referencing the impale dust. ;P

    Hmm, the spell slam is still showing of a sand cone. Hmm. Need to tweak that asap.
    Oh well, will do that tomorrow, hopefully.
