March 6 update Added shadows to the cart interior custom textures. Aligned UV's to the custom textures. Animated radar (broke earlier). Made example map with sounds & effects. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1U6eqkDK2I"]YouTube - TF2 Bombcart model in action[/ame] (click play, click HQ) Still thinking of how to animate when it reaches the final point, since custom particles are unavailable. Also making many other misc changes, but I will release this version sometime soon. ____________________ Very much a WIP at this point. Model is based on a 'bomb' from a movie, I'll let you guess which one. The model should glow (in the center). A bubbles particle emitter is attached. Basically, it'll be an EMP bomb thing. Still to do: More details on model Edit textures for the old bomb (used for sides) Enhance the glow, and textures/effects (reflections on glass??? and vmt setup???) Possible animations (loading, detonation) <--- anyone have ideas for this? Edit cart/dispenser objects?? (esp front of cart) Edit: Did some more tweaks to the .vmt's... playing with the envmap and selfillum settings (tinting the reflection and giving the glass/spiral a glow). I think this will look best in a map without a sun (aka overcast/night). Also flattened the edges on the sides. I'm still deciding on the base for the bomb, and how to rebuild the cart (going to be metal). Also added a sprite (last screens). Screens (Updated ones first): 10/2 Prev: Spawned in the dark area: Bomb cart in shade, with sprite: Playing with -tools: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/hl22008-09-2700-11-10-98.jpg 9/30 Updates Going for the spytech look... metal struts with the white metal railing (not textured yet as you can see). http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/XSI2008-09-3000-17-07-48.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/XSI2008-09-3000-31-20-42.jpg _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Old screens: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/cerel20000.jpg Bubbles! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/cerel20004.jpg _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/pinchscreen2.jpg Closer up, you can see the custom bubble particle emitter http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v480/logantscott/pinchscreen1.jpg Reference!!!!!
