    I already posted this in my WIP for pl_vipersden, but I am so impressed by my friends awesome models I had to give this it's own thread.

    Introducing the Viper Cart

    My good friend Josh "Jive Turkey" made these awesome moving snake models that crawl around the bomb cart as you push it down track. Be sure to watch video in high quality.

    Edit 2/02/09: New video without player or HUD in the way, remember to watch it in High Quality (HQ):

    Video 2: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtqPSILXsa8"]YouTube - pl VipersDen ViperCart 2[/ame]

    Edit 2/04/09: As suggested, Jive slowed the snakes movement down. Check out new video:

    When I first went to this thread I looked at the pic and I went "Okay, snakes." Then I watched the vid.

    This is one of the most awesome things I've ever seen.

    It would also work great for that pl_jungle map.

    @ TotalMark - Yeah, the picture does not do it justice. Jive did a great job animating the snakes.
    @ D - Thanks. I agree and feel even more motivated to make the map worthy of this addtion.
    @ Spike - Jive, the modeler, is going to create the explosion for me and his plan is to have crap loads of snakes fly out of the bomb as if it was filled with them.
    @ Grim - Glad you like it.
    @ Ceiling Man - for now the snake models are reserved for VipersDen. Jive may release them publicly down the road.

    No animals were hurt in the making of this map. Reptiles, but not animals :)

    Now you gotta get some curled up snakes with hissing sounds to put in a few tucked away corners. Would be awesome for our maps too ;)

    It'd be easier to see if it was first-person instead of third. :/

    @Sgt Frag - Good idea. Put some snake models in corners of cave and add some ambient hissing sounds.
    @Rexy - Thanks, glad you like it and appreciate you bringing scale issue to my attention.
    @Boojum Shark - I'll try and record some 1st person video tomorrow

    wow, i'm never going to push that cart!
    What would be even more cool if you could shoot them off and after a X amount of time they respawn
