Although I think the second one was much more complicated to do I still prefer the first one. Teamcolor is more obvious and it still looks good!
It really wasn't complicated. On the GIMP, I just used "Select by color" and then a little bit of "Magic selection" here and there. The rest was what I do for any team coloring: added a white mask and painted the selection gray (I don't actually remember what gray I used exactly but I think it was 0x777777), applied the mask and was done.
But naturally yes, teamcolor on revision 1 is much more visible.
Actually my main objection to it is that the colored area is very similar to that of the warrior (being that compared to Tech, Warrior≃Swordman and Guardian≃Guard). The two models are very different and not easily mistaken even in a big battle but I'd like every unit to be as original as possible (following the general theme and their particular characteristics of course). Also, in the original model, that kind of looks like a metal plate...
How do they look in the game, maybe showing one screenshot with different colors?
K, here's four of them:
Vanilla Glest normal gameview, red revision 1 and blue revision 2:
Full zoom-in view, red revision 1 and blue revision 2:
Normal view, yellow revision 1 and green revision 2 on the background:
Normal view, green revision 2:
Number 1 definitely
You know what, I should make dwarves mk2 though not now as I'm busy doing the textures for dwarves, redoing tech, and magic and doing stuff for GLADE, plus trying to get back to the gervoriath.
Thanks for the "vote".
Yeah, I'd actually like to see your Dwarves mk2.
But it does look like you have quite a bit on your plate now, just takeyour time.
