    Looks alright, but it gets a little repetitive as you only have the one small prop.

    It's also not as leafy as I'd (personally) like; leaves are too large and there aren't enough of them.

    But its really nice for such a simple model.

    you know what, your screenshot doesn't do the model justice at all :eek:
    i would post that screenshot from Pc_Madness. he uses it in a very cool way and it doesn't look too repetitive the way he uses it !

    cause in that bright egypt environment the vines can't shine :/
    i wouldn't have believed these are the same models on these different screenshots. makes such a huge difference with the altered lighting settings.
    kepperific work !

    Yea my screenshots are pretty bad, they are mainly for size reference. Size and amount is like that because it was requested to be like that. Also they are not really designed to be spammed next to each other as in my fail srcreenshot.

    3rd screenshot is really nice. They work nicely on a rock background.

    True, though it would still help to have three or four variations. While you can build a house out of 1x4 lego bricks, having some 1x2s and 1x1s really helps. :)

    I could make few varations but more models = more textures = bigger maps etc. Draw me few shapes and ill see what i can do.

    They couldn't be that large.

    But I was thinking a section that doesn't branch out at all and a V shaped piece.

    don't think you'd need more textures for the variations. could be made modular kinda, i guess. i mean you have one leaf and one trunk texture so far. why change that ;)
    the way i understood Draco was that you could make more model variations. like not 1 big and small, but 2-3 big and small versions, so people can spread them wisely around. that wouldn't really make the filesize any bigger.

    but it's just an option. i totally understand that once you're finished with a model you don't wanna take that step back only for one person :D
    it's not meant to be harsh, but we just have to look on the downloads section.
    is it worth to spend another hours long session just to get 3 more downloads.... ?
    i think if someone would really ask for more variations especially for his map you could jump on the wagon.
    i always get this feeling. people always ask for more textures model variations but in the end they don't even download (let alone use it in their maps). so i'd leave the cool stuff as it is and let people come towards you if they should ask for more :)

    i can only say it again, i think it's some nice work that if lit and placed correctly can really make the map shine !

    These are actually rather pretty, I'll use them if I can find an appropriate spot.

    Thanks n30n.

    only now had a chance to check it out dude, good work!
    Cuz you fully modeled the leaves, they catch shadows quite beautifully m8.

    y'might wanna take a look at the download - check out the tf/models/props sub-folder.
    The files are outside of the VINE folder ... no biggie - just thought I'd mention it.

    keep up the great work N3on!
