    Mann Co. Wind Turbine

    Item # 4178

    ---------------------------​
    Is your company's need for constant electricity being stopped short in its tracks by high-priced fossil fuels and/or highly unstable Uranium? Well, not anymore! Mann Co.'s brand-new product, the Wind Turbine, lets you punch air's big brother, wind, in the face, then put a saddle on that bitch and mount it like a wild Mexican bronco. Powered solely by wind, these state-of-the-art towers will generate all the electricity you need to power your giant laser, giant centrifuge, or giant robot of destruction. Each turbine comes in a stylish, tinted gray to please all (two) sides of a never-ending war!


    Note: remember to set the prop type to dynamic for maximum spinnage.

    Note 2: giant thanks to Boylee for the super-sexy, super-wind-powered skin!

    Rexy - Detail Mode: those are cool
    Rexy - Detail Mode: but I'd give the texture some banding for hightlights
    Rexy - Detail Mode: and more paint strokes!

    I was actually thinking about needing this for the redux of drydock...

    Is there a skybox version in there?

    There is not, but I guess I'll put one in.

    can the blades rotate too?

    Sorry I meant to toss that into the first post via edit but you posted before I could.

    The model's 'idle' animation is of the blades spinning; the 'still' animation is, obviously, still blades.

    Updated the model with 'spinup' and 'slowdown' animations - although watch out, they are extremely bad and I do not recommend using them.

    The colour strips aren't very... colourful. Perhaps a little more saturation on the colour strips in your next release. They look like "barely visible grey", "darker grey" and "mirky grey".

    You should also get those animations refined so they are "better" and "recommended"

    I'll talk to Boylee about that, grazr.

    Also I've updated the model with better and recommended spinup and slowdown animations! However, it's your job to get them to blend smoothly with the idle and still anims.

    I downloaded this to see what's what, and... both the team-striped skins are missing. And the default one is a lot darker than your pictures made it look. Did you forget to add the texture files to the zip when you had it reskinned?

    Strange, the download reverted to the original version, with the texture that I made, not Boylee. I hope too many people haven't downloaded the wrong version! Anyway, I've updated the download with the proper textures; big thanks to Steve for pointing that out.
