Wheeled Trebuchet

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I am a long time ago going to make a similar model. This is a fairly rare type of siege weapons. Basically trebuchet unpacked and fixed at a certain place. Wheeled trebuchet is cross between a catapult and standart trebuchet. Quickly move and long-range.

Oh, it's gonna be very useful. Good work.
 
Wow Mike, you have surpassed yourself this time!! I can totally see this be used the same way as olofmolemans legendary trebuchet. I have some feedback on the animations though, which in my opinion are a bit lacking.

Firstly, the attack animation seems to defy gravity. The "throw" is too slow, and when it retracts, the string and bag float in the air in a very unnatural way. You should speed up the throw, and make the arm "bounce" once when it reaches the end, and then retract.

Second, the death animation is better, but it seems to lack inertia. Basically, a piece of wood that big would not fall down and then immediately stop, it would bounce back up a tiny bit before going down and coming to rest. Also, the arm section should fall much faster - right now it looks like it is falling through water. It would also be cool if the arm would, after landing, fall over so that it points towards the ground. Right now it seems to be resting in an unnatural position.

Fix these things and i will improve my rating to 5/5.

Looks really nice!
Mesh looks really well made from Magos.
Hmm, perhaps you could make the weight 'fatter'.
Attack animation could use a bit more of work.
Other than that great job.

Im new,pls tell me how to put the downloaded models to the game (Frozen Throne)
I use Windows 8.1

Download the model and send it to a known location e.g Desktop. Open the Import Manager (Press F12 to open it), Click on "Import File" (or simply Ctrl+I), search for the folder of the model you downloaded, import only the mdx. files and any blp. If there is any blp, you must remove war3imported\ from them to let the model work properly. Some, however, need you to replace that with Textures\ so always look out for the description of the model you're downloading. You're done with importing!

To use the model, go to the Object Editor, go to Art - Model File ---> Import ---> Search for the imported model's path (if it's only one, then you'll just click on Import then OK)
