Troll Warlock

Submitted by Jaccouille
This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
So this is my first try at uploading a model, I gave a shot at mixing some models 2 weeks ago following tutorial on this website, used MatrixEater to do this.

Basically it's just guldan's model replaced with a batrider face & hand, I thought it looked kinda good, wanted to share it and get a small feedback, grapping some idea, maybe it could be useful to some one, I am still downloading models uploaded in 2004 after all.

I did this to replace the Gatherer model on the Island Troll Tribes map, we used OrcWarlock(Guldan) model because he had a backpack, however he has an orc face, wanted to give him a troll one, maybe change his staff & weapon someday so it fit more the gatherer role.

I didn't really get all the rules about "not uploading too simple models/similar to existing one & this website classement on models (approved, "substandard"?), I would appreciate to know if uploading this is alright.

    Holy primitive tauren ! (Am I allowed to say that ?) I thought this was one of ujimasa models initially ... looks great, especially the face animation. I have not tried it in game yet , but so far I like it ! I love the fact that you also posted the icon.

    No. You are now going to internet jail.

    Cool model too. Troll mages that don't look like the shadow priest are very much needed.

    Honestly I think this is great. A very elegantly simple mixture to create a new addition to the Trolls WHICH, importantly, doesn't have a mohawk or crazy-bowed-legs! I mean I love those things, but you see them on ALMOST LITERALLY every single Troll model & it gets passé.

    This gives a Jungle Troll race a unit with a unique form/animation profile (at least compared to existing standard in-game stuff; cinematic stuff doesn't count so it's good for that), and since it's made from in-game parts it fits perfectly. Even better, you have the model, it's Portrait, and an Icon!

    If I might suggest a few changes that could really enhance this (or at least help differentiate it, especially in-game next to the existing Warlock), consider rewrapping the textures (especially the ones for his clothes). A new UVWrap, perhaps with more Trollish materials (cloth, leather, wood, bones, etc) could give this model a real facelift.
    Possibly also (minor), change the color of the particle SFX in Spell/Stand Channel as well.

    Good luck.

    That's exactly what I would sugest, Tribal gear for this Warlock, such as the Shadow Hunter Blades, or the Troll Witch Doctor Staff with improvements.

    A nice model that can be enhanced!

    Just be sure to include any modifications as additions to the Bundle (rather than replacements); people often love earlier versions. : )

    Looks great, thanks for putting it up. +1 for troll models without mohawk or crummy legs.

    I could change his staff and particle to the witch doctor one, I can also change the texture but I haven't any rewrapping, didn't read tutorial on it yet

    Naw; it's much better if this guy can be used alongside the standard in-game Witch Doctor, which would require him to have his own kind of particles/tools. Play around, experiment with different kinds of particles & colors. If doing custom stuff isn't your forte, consider taking some other in-game SFX & changing the colors/speed/other stats of it.

    As long as you're using MDLVis, it's relatively straightforward. : ) The UV Editor is found with F2 (IIRC). Simply open your model in Magos, change the texture-path of the geoset you want to rewrap to the new texture, then save & open in MDLVis & open the sub-menu (via F2) to start moving the polygons of the chosen geoset around on the texture, which will change how it looks.

    Alternatively, @Retera 's Matrix Eater software actually has a real-time UV Editing functionality, IIRC. Might wanna mess around with that too.
