    Hm, seem that there were not any such model made yet. But tell me, are the stairs inside really that needed?

    But they are not visible from game camera. Make so that the interior is visible so they are worth added polygons.

    Very good model!

    two things though, one with the stand alternate animation, the tower itself doesn't move at all, but the lowering platform kind of "stretches" back and forth :/ you should at least make both move, or both not move at all.

    I would also suggest making a morph alternate animation, so the tower can raise it's platform again and be moved again.
    Excellent wrap and model all in all, I'd give it a 4 / 5, 5 if you fixed the stand alternate animation.

    I think this model stands out. It's different from all the other models that i've seen here on hive, when it comes to mechanical models :)

    I might use this in one of my maps, 5/5 :thumbs_up:

    Sige towers had stairs. Well they were a little bi more complicated but that cant be fir in a model. I dont thnk even G. Frank could do that. Sige tower was used to get troops across the wall. So he needs stairs.

    Model is great. Especialy usefull for defense scrnarios like Minas Tirit.

    All tanks have engines. Do people model the engines? No. Because the engine is not visible =D

    Sares were visible on most towers cuz they didnt had a back wall. Tehy didnt needed 1. Some towers had all 4 walls and stairs werent visible. But Thisone doesnt have a back wall. So stairs ae sopose to be visible. Nothing wrong with the tower. Its a great model and it has real world characteristics.

    The morph animation makes the gate go down...

    It does need a morph-alternate animation though, so we can have the gate going up. =)

    Also, why does only one stair have a thickness and the rest look like planes?

    They should all be one or the other. And it seems Pyritie wants them as planes.
