no idea what that green thing on the back ever was.. I'm liking the better design, retains old style but nicer finish all round. You going through all the bodies? perhaps separate threads for the various categories i.e. Body models, weapon models etc..

I remake all models that still have old design and are too low poly for nowadays standards of game industry. Updated graphics is the only way to attract new people into warzone, imho.

In case the WZ-game ends in a draw , the game winner will be determined by penalty shoot-out.

Looks very promising :)

I have a few suggestions/ideas so I made a paintover.
1)This deviates a bit from the original model, but why not make the turret mount a bit more prominent
2)Window slots feel a bit too open/unprotected. Keep in mind that one reason for the original wideness is the limited resolution (only 2 pixels)
3)On the original model, this feature seems to go all the way down. Maybe it could be some kind of detachable compartment (like on the m4 sherman's detachable glacis plate with integrated transmission system) Just an Idea, not sure what looks better.
4)What about some kind of frame around the headlights? Original texture seems to indicate something like this.

Agreed, I would extend that's also how responsive the game is and community/player involvement. More people playing online = faster to get into games etc. A well designed online Lobby would help to achieve that.

A new sequel to war zone with newer graphics, game engine and story with nexus back would be ace and can be started with all new ideas, designs and concepts but is probably just a dream

Question. How far we are to have 2 team color ? I mean, if a team color was yellow with a touch of green, that could be the touch of green.

Not sure what do you mean, but why do we need this?

Well... we dont "need" any of this right ?

If felt like an accent color would make the models look even better then one single plain color. For example I believe that green would have still look better on the blue designs here. Actualy, green could have still be an option on all of them...

Now that I think of it... maybe we dont need 2 colors on the same model. Could color the body green, the propulsion blue and the turret black via code only if we want to make fancy factions...
