Ok.. a while ago I created a tank called the Arlo T-27. It was based off of a model that is in the TM directory(tank 4 i think). I had always ment to create a Mesh for it but I was not as good as i am now. If you want to see the first one go here http://treadmarks.vorklift.com/tm_download.php?id=4 (Thx Random Chaos). It is in the list under the name Arlo.

I recreated it with a new mesh, Texture , Explosions and every thing.It even has a new name Arlo T-87 Destroyer. Sounds kinda corny but I like it. Right now I am doing some ent work for it but here are two Renders.
(sorry to all you who have Dial up)

The Text on the side is backwords because that is the way the TM engine renders a texture on a mesh.(I wish I knew why. Any one know?)
Feed back Please!!!

Ah, I notice another dual barrelled tank; take some time and look at the conan mod which has and ent and image for a double tank round.

I set the Conan as a double 120mm since hands down, the barbarian has the biggest bore barrels in the game for stock tanks.

At one time I had a version of the Draconian with a custom skin and double 100mm tank rounds using the same configuration as the Conan.

To be fair, the Conan should take a wee bit longer to reload than a stock round especially if you get hit ( :twisted:

Why didn't you decrease the power of the shells it fires - that way it is balanced and it looks good
- I have a draconian based tank that i made - but not one with double fire.

THx for the comments guys... Its still a WIP (Work in Progress) but it will be done soon.

I had the Conan in mind when i designed the projectile for the arlo and it should be very pleasing to the eye.

Right now I am in the middle of touching up the texture, adding vents, lights and extra what not. I am also finishing up the ent work and making some new engine sounds. Th last Arlo engine sounds were just a rip from another game. This time all of it will have been made by me, which is the point.

2ndSelf: Its there, its called Arlo made by King Tiger (that was my name before i changed it)

Original isn't actualy that bad - think I actualy recognise the engine sound from somewhere but it's still good. I can make decent tanks but I don't make my own meshes yet.

Mesh's: To start out I recomend trying Milkshape 3D until you can get somthing like SolidWorks, Cinima4D, or Lightwave. Maya is good to so is 3DSm but i generaly think of them as for animation proggramss but they still work.

That mesh took me about 2 hours in all, once i removed all the invalid Verticies and Cleaned it up a bit. It started out as a 15,000 poly model and turnde into a 1000 poly tank for tm. :) {that is why it does not really look like the first :)}

Ill be posting some Screen Shots from in game tonight...

Wow I quite like your Tank-Destroyer-Tank!
I notice the tank namesounds from warcraft 3 ( now that's a good game! )
I would have used sounds from that but I can't seem to find them - maybee I'm not looking hard enough!

Do you play warcraft 3?
Alot of my time recently has been spent on making a TD map and a campaign for it ( But I'm not exceptionaly talented at it! - that's a pretty nice way of saying it - recently I have figured it out though and gotten loads better. )

Nice shots :wink:

Yeah i made the tank destroyer about 2 or 3 months after the arlo and just befor i textured BZPs King Tiger tank. Yeah i did rip the sounds from Warcraft 3 but that was when I owned a copy it and I used the map editor to get the sound files... the music is there to. As I said I did own it and the copy was a burned cd that i recieved from my sis B/f about a month befor the game first came out. but it broke so now i dont have a copy.

It's kept a high price tag of £20.00 for the game and £20.00 for the expansion in the years it's been out too - if that doesn't say something good about it I duno what does.
