Ursa Major - Super Heavy Tank

Submitted by General Frank
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description
The Ursa Major is the crown of super-heavy tank development of the United Federal Territories. The Ursa Major, or internally named the X3, was spawned by the successful deployment and testing of the Kodiak Super Heavy Tank.

The Tank is equipped with the heaviest, most expensive and most modern armament seen in the battalions of the UFT. Ursa Major packs two super-heavy 155mm high velocity cannons with armour piercing shells, a twin linked pair of heavy barrage rocket pods and the newly developed fuel ejection system, primarily a heavy twin flame-thrower. The chassis of the tank is plated with the best composite armour plating available to the UFT. Being designed as a highly versatile super-heavy tank, two subsystems can me mounted on the two pods on the turret. Due to the new fusion engines the tank can reach very high speeds for a super-heavy class tank. The tank also features some of the best subsystems available in the galaxy, laser-guides, multi-purpose radar and diction systems and high intensity lights being only few of them.

In case of possible critical damage the tank will leave a wreckage, which can, due to the high integrity of the tank's hull, be totally repaired and recovered.


In the following pack you can find more goodies associated with the tank:

21:26, 27th Mar 2010 DonDustin: will get rating/comment after the contest DonDustin: added rating. 1 of the best Tank models I have seen so far. The mesh is outstanding and the textures fit very well. One might argue that it is just another tank...

    Yes, but GF said in his gallery that this is not for the contest, that he will make something new in concept.

    you can even squish it down to 40 :grin:

    Frank, what did you do to this tank that it has such an uber small file size when compressed?

    However I agree with Fingolfin about the death animation
    it looks weird

    Men, I got a problem with this and others General's Frank models...I imported them correctly and I followed all steps suggested by all guides I found to make them work ingame...despite all these things I see these models as green/black cubes in the editor and as a sort of "shadow" printed on the terrain when I play ingame (these shadows are almost unselectable by left-clicking on them but if an enemy unit come into their threat range they attac that unit :S )...
    1) i tried to restart the editor but the problem doesn't fade away
    2) I thought that the problem is due to a missing texture but in the model description there isn't any texture path or other similar things...

    can anyone help me solving this problem? I like these models and I would appreciate to use them ingame :cool:

    however these are the steps i followed to import the model, so if it's only a problem of importing the model it will be much easier to find:
    1.downloaded and unzip the file
    2.editor: opened import manager-->imported file-->selected the mdx file associated to this model
    3.opened object manager-->selected a unit(just a normal melee unit)-->graphic-model-->selected the string war3mapImported\SuperHeavy_Tank_UrsaMajor.mdx
    4.in object editor appears: graphic-model=war3mapImported\SuperHeavy_Tank_UrsaMajor.mdl

    thx for the attenction, I hope you will help me solving my issue, and hi to all ;)

    I think you'd need a patch, that'll install the war3Patch.MPQ that contains the tank's skin (Tinker tank)
