This isn't a thread to discuss who is doing what and all that beureacratic red tape rubbish. Just make a model/texture/concept art whatever and post it here. There is to be no more discussion, if you want this mod to get on it's feet then you need to start doing something. The game to base this mod on is undecided, but that is not neccesary to just making and skinning models. I suggest you make them to the standard of C&C3 however.

Every so often I am going to post concepts of each vehicle and I want someone to model and texture it. I'm not going to talk about buildtime, attack power, range or any of that number rubbish. There is no point until we decide the game. Just model it, skin it and rig it. Once we have a few units then maybe then we can start talking about which game to put our mod in.

The concept pictures will consist of images such as a drawing (or lego version if there is one), a real life counterpart and various other inspirations.


When building, consider these key features:
-It hovers. Think Wraith from Halo.
-It has two GAUSS cannons. This rotates 360 degrees and can tilt what looks like 45 degrees up or down. Each barrel is NOT independant of the other, they move in sync.
-It has two machine guns. Presumably these can mvoe independently and and 360 degree ball movement.
-It can be lifted by a dropship
-I imagine it fits in as a light tank role rather than an MBT. The Thyrm is a seige tank, so that means the Xarkon Main battle tank is undesigned.

Take inspiration from these images:

Obviously in lego form it is very undetailed as to what it would really look like.

As a light tank, think of making it the size of this Scimitar.

The Wraith is where Scorp got inspiration from I think.

This is how much detail you expect in an RTS game.

Right then.

Heres a concept I posted on the Spring thread. Basically, I used photoshop to colour and add some details to the excellent model made by Dense_electric.

Comments? I reckon that this is a good way to mockup things.

seems really good ah... how....? whatever, anyway I WOULD post something important but.... i'm terrible at lego and digital modeling. but I can do something like you did in the first post. but without the pictures.
the thrym xarkon siege tank. it has two big side-mounted treads, a giant tank gun with some small rocket racks on the side, two gattling guns near the cockpit, and two energy saws by the treads. its red. if ypu want to see it for real, go to www.novarefuge.com/ go to the lego section, got to official models, and go to xarkon. you should be able to find the thrym. wow. my longest post so far.
the world nerdiest Nova refuge fan. go to my fan fiction!!!!!
"do you like waffles? yeah we like waffles. do you like pancakes? yeah we like pancakes. do like french toast? yeah we like french toast! do do deloo can't wait to get a bite of WAFFLES! WAFFLES! WAFFLES!" ah, the waffle song. let us bask in your syrupy goodness.

But it's not like that matters on this board. It's not really illegal to resurrect dead topics here. wink.gif
