Wounded In Action ?
thx for todays wisdom
Hello again. Here there are some new pictures of my WIP thing
I added the front visor which pivots as the gunner locks a target, just as the AH-1W one does and modified the missile launcher which weights 264 tris.
... a detailed look at the rear tail rotor
The whole thing is 8469 tris... is this ok???
I looked in the internet and that ACE Mod looks pretty nice... but I think they have very nice modelers with them. For now I only want to finish my helicopter and watch it flying in ArmAOriginally Posted by [b
Namreg, that looks great. Sorry I didn't get back to you with that overpaint. My brain has been hurting.
As far as I can see that model looks good. I'm glad you toned down the mat on the inside. That had a lot of geo!
9k seems good. I don't think the bis lb is much less. Maybe you don't need the skids to be 2 polies wide but I'm not sure if you're defining some kind of shape there. Make sure everything's all nice and smooth and round, too. Keep at this, your progress is fantastic.
oh, some of the extrusions on your tail rotor feathering hinge can probably be be accomplished with textures, the pin there too, but 9k is not so bad. The lower the better, tho. And the tail rotor will be spinning a lot of the time anyway. Either way I think it looks good.
Please use the CWR2 CBT to help us provide a better experience.
Really nice model, looks great, but here's my paintover:
1: No need for that extra cyl, you can texture that.
2. That hole can also be textured.
3. No need for these small bolts, texture will cover that, if it's ever going to be noticed, it's really small
4: No need for that extrusion/bump also.
5: You can make that into one box, no need for such small detail.
6: no need for that cyl.
The stuff in green: you could probably weld those verts back and save 16 polies
I think 9k polys is pretty solid. Sure you can cut it back a bit more, but I don't think it's that big of a deal. If I were you, I would start UV mapping.

I will not be taking part in the contest, but I support it 100%! Great idea, BIS!
Im really sorry for not reading thrue all the pages, and yes I did a search.
But is anybody actually working on improving the humvees, with some armour for instance?
we need some m1114 with extra armour and the extra armour ontop of that, and the gun turret armour with glass, perhaps even the sunshade things. And all the other anti IED opsec thingys on the front and rear of the humvees. Not forgetting the high tech comms equipment. And the second backup SAW in the gun turret.
Its not a request otherwise I would have put it in the other topic, and Im sure somebody is allready working on these...
any updates on this perhaps?
With the desert maps coming out and all, it doesnt feel right driving the mcnools desert skinned bis humvees arround without the armour and turret armour the dudes get shot earlier then dismounted...
IMWM (Iraqi Modern Warfare Mod) are your guys, AFAIK. ACE has some too, there's a new GAU19 shot around somewhere...
EDIT - Well, since the GAU19 is actually remotely controlled, forget what I just said. But I do believe they're working on uparmoured HMMWVs in addition to IMWM.
Everyone tempted to post another inane/useless/whogivesatoss topic in the A3 forum - here.
As far as I know, NOBODY is working on stand-alone uparmored humvees addon....sad but true.
