My little sub-project. [MOD] - Bikers

Postby Mr.Guybrush » 05 Oct 2004, 23:51

Hey, some of you will remember me from the dark.... dark.... days of axia. However, since leaving axia i have been grooming myself as an artist. I've been working on a nwn pw, and i've needed a break from continually modeling terrian.

So here is my little mod for DOW.

http://www.gdchat.org/phil/DoW/sm_bike07.jpg

That image is the high poly model, (this is needed for texturing large details). I'm slowling improving it to around 150,000 polys.

http://www.gdchat.org/phil/DoW/sm_bike12.jpg

This is the DoW low poly version. At the momment i am just unwrapping the model proparing it for texturing. Once i've completed the texturing i'll move onto the animations. I'm hoping to add the marine asap, i'm waiting for Relic to get an importer/exporter for DoW ready.

The units planned for this mod are:

sm biker
sm sergeant
sm chaplain
sm assault bike

Similiar to a standard sp squad, the bikes will start with one and having the ability to recruit a further 3 bikes and a sergeant, adding in the chaplain makes a squad of 6. I think assault bikes will be seperate units, however that might change.

I think i probably will also create chaos version and also an orc bike or two. Eldar, of course don't need them.

Anyhow post up your opinions, suggestions. I need some ideas for upgrades.

Hey thats pretty cool :)
Maybe you could start them off with machine guns then 2 or 3 of the bikes could be upgraded with rocket pods and/or assault cannons

Or just allow the bikers to upgrad their weapons as per the TT - though you'lll have to use a flamer since theres no melta weapons in DoW (boo!)

Not sure how you'll allow the attack bike to get upgraded, missile launcher maybe :D

That would be cool.

What about balance issues though?

"melta bomb grenade launcher" - that is being considered, first off i want to worry about the actual models, then i'll begin play testing them.

I was going to have them with upgradable weaponary. However, i then thought about it a little bit more. Bike squads are used for a scouting group rather than an attacking unit. So i'll probably just have them with the ordinary bolters.

When I played the tabletop game, I used them for flanking manouvers and hit n run attacks.
