Hmm...well if not, it should be lost anyways. Or else that wouldn't really make sense, right?

This can be done in MG, maybe you could port.

Hard to say if losing it is the "correct" action, and GAE already has a produce resource command, so.... naw. The entire point of Project Red is the reverse: to GAE-ize mods!

I kinda thought that was what would happen, but it turns out that Energy isn't "stored" anywhere like food.  I'm not sure how I feel about this.

This.  I have zero interest in making this mod for MegaGlest.

Well, that's something to debate about/look into.  :-\

Let's see if you can get a stable release before the merge finishes. If not, you're basically are making it for MG too. If you do, you still technically are. 8) :O

Sure! :)
If you want to jump right in, the Renewer is rigged, weighted, and ready to animate.

He'll need standing, walking, dying, and spell-casting.  I'm debating whether or not to give him an attack skill, but that will likely use the same animation as spell-casting.  He's still waiting on a texture so he has only a placeholder for now.

Actually I was wondering If I could animate those?
I've started to animate a few of my own models, and I'm not too bad (I think).
The texture is nearly done and I've almost completed the Shadow Mage model.

Sorry I have been going slow, I've put some of my stuff first and then a few constellus things before this.

Hmm... how about I hand the Renewer off to Arch for animation (since it's ready to go and he needs something to do), and you can animate the Shadow Mage?  Does that sound fair?  There will also be the Silver Mage to animate when the time comes.

Awesome! It's been awhile since I did any humanoid animations. :scientist:
Downloading now...

Edit: How do I download the models folder? I can only find one download thing and it's trying to make me download the whole mod?  :look: I don't get how this whole git thing works... :-X

Just go to the repository https://github.com/johndh/Project-Red/tree/master/project_red/techs/project_red/factions/magic/units/renewer/models/ and click on the unit name at the bottom of the page, then click the text that says "view raw". This should make the "open with..." dialog box pop up with Blender selected as the default.

Just a quick update for ships.

Those look fantastic!

more ships are coming.
More? How many is there? Is that just one faction or multiple? Do you have plans to make something different or more unique than a ship for some factions (such as a sea serpent for magic, as discussed in the past)?

That's just Tech right there.  I also plan to give them a transport ship and Mr. War's submarine.  I think Magic may be able to make due without any water units, since they'll have teleporting units and dragons.  The Dwarves are getting an amphibious transport unit (mostly done) and a few ships, as well as naval mines if I find a good way of making them work.

Status Update:
Idle and Walking done.
This walking animation is definitely one of my best. :D I think walking is actually harder to animate than running. :P

While I'm currently calling this the Turtle due to its hard shell and amphibious nature, I'm open to suggestions for naming it.  It's the Dwarven solution for moving troops across water, and has shielded windows in the sides so Cannoneers can fire out.


The texture is a placeholder, obviously.

In case you're wondering where I got a reference for those paddle-spokes:

Nice, though I suggest making the outer edge of the wheel higher polygon so it doesn't look so ugly.

Edit: I only have Death left to do for the Renewer. Want an attack animation or not? If so, what kind? Melee, Magic Melee, or Magic Ranged.

If I give him an attack (which I probably will), it would be magical and ranged.  He's definitely not a melee fighter by any stretch.  Chances are that the cast animation will work fine as an attack as well, so I won't hold it against you if you skip it.
