oky cool

@Boomninja You wanted to see whether weapons would be mounted on the Casspir? Well here is a taste. This is the M2a1 which'll be on there along with the M1919, FN MAG and a few others. Luckily I don't have to model most of them as they are already in Squad. Although the m1919 is in Post Scriptum... Not sure if I can use that in a Squad mod otherwise I'll just model my own m1919.

The shield will of course change as that is a modern version not seen on the Casspir

Beautifull

2019-03-16 14:12:28 UTC  

Looks like there is some interest in using this in the troopers mod @Springbok

2019-03-16 14:35:21 UTC  

jip

2019-03-16 14:35:47 UTC  

Trooper mod?

2019-03-16 14:36:20 UTC  

its arc trooper mod. its like the movie arc troopers

2019-03-16 14:36:41 UTC  

Never heard of it 😬

2019-03-16 14:36:49 UTC  

its shit thb

2019-03-16 14:37:15 UTC  

but the first time AI was put into squad

2019-03-16 14:41:04 UTC  

Ah ok. Oh it's that Sci Fi mod right?

2019-03-16 14:41:20 UTC  

yea

2019-03-16 15:40:05 UTC  

movie was starship troopers i think [must have seen that] 🤖 cant remember if it was good though

2019-03-16 15:41:12 UTC

2019-03-16 15:41:28 UTC

2019-03-16 15:41:49 UTC  

Keen to see these two girls riding alongside each other in the bushveld soon.

2019-03-16 15:42:14 UTC  

just do it

2019-03-16 15:42:25 UTC  

that looks nice

2019-03-16 15:42:46 UTC  

The Buffel makes me cry though... Why... did they design her with an exposed engine... Modeling engines is not easy!

2019-03-16 15:43:11 UTC  

id believe that lol

2019-03-16 15:47:23 UTC  

In game, at the moment, it would be a promlem. I tnink it is the emrap, you can see the engine just in front of the suspension, and you can even use a knife to disable it

2019-03-16 15:48:07 UTC  

That's why in the mod I want players to be able to drive over enemies and kill them that way

2019-03-16 15:48:32 UTC  

As it was a tactic used in the Border War. Would be silly not to have that option to just squash any sneaky guys trying to do that.

2019-03-16 15:48:51 UTC  

i have seen some of the buffels with closed engines so that would help too if it can be closed

2019-03-16 15:50:24 UTC  

Buffel engine...

2019-03-16 15:50:50 UTC  

That's a Rhino IIRC?

2019-03-16 15:50:53 UTC  

Or Moffel

2019-03-16 15:51:44 UTC  

@Kooijpolloi will probably know.

2019-03-16 15:52:48 UTC  

well doesnt matter cause they were fast af for troop deployment

2019-03-16 15:53:53 UTC  

The chances of getting up to a Buffel to stab its engine is unlikely unless the crew have the situational awareness equivalent to a sloth.

2019-03-16 15:54:52 UTC  

lol

2019-03-16 15:55:20 UTC  

It is vulnerable to small arms fire though...

2019-03-16 15:55:48 UTC  

you could also decide how mush detail is needed 'in game', enough to be immersed, without impacting game performance ect...

2019-03-16 15:55:54 UTC  

I can see enemy players zoning in on the engine at least from certain angles. There is an armour plate covering the right side

2019-03-16 15:56:31 UTC  

Ja true. I will have to optimize the model a lot. The engine won't be as detailed as it is in reality. But the general shape will be as accurate as I can get it
