2 new versions of cobra body.
The upper one is my imagination of how it will look with new details. It has 152 triangles.
The lower one is what I see on the original texture. It has 176 triangles.

I wonder how it'd look with heavy duty bumpers. In addition, modelling the bodies with headlamp slots would be interesting if, someday, we get night/day difference with dynamic lighting :rolleyes:

But the overall geometry is fine.

Here is the original body. As you can see, it has this part of model. I think that each model should save its own original style. But anyway, opinions of developers and community are necessary to me.

Also, I've posted two versions of cobra body because I don't know what of them to choose....

I've made a simple model of wheels propulsion. It looks funny xD . Like a buggy I think.

Dune buggy, yes. I like. :) Would use of a piece as new class prop-unit... like the "Tumbler" in the last 2 Dark Knight flicks.

yeah ... it's blue, it has to be an atreides raider xD

ok, back to be serious ;)
i like all your models 'till now, great work! :)

i would like to see, how this would look like on the bigger bodies
i can't imagine 2 wheels per side for a big body O_o
could break in the middle xD

Warzone has a propulsion models for each body's class, if you don't know that. For a Middle bodies model has 3 wheels, etc. Just launch the game and you'll see.

I've done a few minor changes to the new propulsion and reduced a triangles count. Now it has 336 triangles (too many because of wheels). I've changed colors for better preview(I don't have a textures yet :gonk:).

Um, the wheels themselves are far too detailed. They should be decagonal prisms, at most. Octagonal prisms would work! And the bar attached to the backs of the wheels are pretty useless; get rid of them.

They look like part of a 4 wheel independent suspension rocker arm system - very useful for off-road travel. But I'm just guessing that's their purpose. In any case not likely to be animated any time soon so perhaps it is sensible to put aside suggestive aesthetics for the actual pragmatics. Something of a judgment call.
