concept by njroo ke
Well, here it is. Another installment to the RTX saga. Slightly tweaked for more detail and realistic mechanics.

And here's the original concept:

++ADDITION++

Here is the 3ds file for unwrapping/skinning:
RTXsgByStrap.3DS

I exported without saving max's texture coordinates-- thus you shouldn't have to reweld all the vertecies and the smoothing groups will still be there. (I imported it back into max, and it looked perfect, along with Ms3d).

The polycount stands at 1720.
Have fun!

Note: credits go to Njroo Ke (or Rooke) for the RTX concept, and to me (Strap) for the model, and to you if you skin it tounge.gif .

    mmmm sechs-tacular...another quality model in progress... smile-fix.gif

    just a little nit...perhaps the barrel could be lengthened to match the length of the stock. it kinda looks a tad too short.... tounge.gif
    It's supposed to be an all-round tank with added basewrecking functionality, not an obese fairy that can make single targets magically disappear, but that gets completely mowed down by groups. - A very true description of the v3.0b4a Onos

    In the model or the concept? I made the barrel in the model longer than in the concept because because it was too short.

    Thanks... I've been on the forums for quite a long time though. I feel I have outgrown my old alias (check sig).

    As for the PC, it's nicely below 2k at 1798. Considering all the contours and parts.

    after spending some time staring at the render ive got some C&C for you

    1) make the barrel a cylinder not a tube
    2) reduce the number of sides on the top barrel
    3) reduce number of sides on the bottom cylinder
    4) reduce number of sides on the shells

    lol i went to reply to this and noticed strap was also reading the thread, feels like he's looking over my shoulder as im typing or something >.>

    I really like the model and its good that you got a new name, sounds more professional. Let's just hope you get a beautiful skin to go with it, cause the best model can be ruined by a crappy skin sad-fix.gif

    3) reduce number of sides on the bottom cylinder
    4) reduce number of sides on the shells

    I'm going to chop that whole part out for the meshable version. So that should make up for your stated changes, polycount wise.

    Any objections to me deleting all the front faces on the gun? (not the left side or anything, just the ones on the very end) I don't think any animations will be holding the gun with the barrel facing the camera tounge.gif .

    I made huge progress on the RTX hmg, it just needs some tweaking and some sights. I'm also remaking the RTX lmg I made so long ago (sorry to void your work, skinny sad-fix.gif )

    Also.. the smoothing groups are true, as in, there are not triangles using no smoothing group (max allows this, but it messes up the groups when exporting or using in a game, so don't worry about that).





    (I'll continue work if no one objects to the deleting of the faces on the end of the gun)
