    leave the cannon on rocket only tanks. say its a dummy. profit.

    Alternatively: One rocketlauncher for each side, make front of turret plain flat.

    Since like, September last year, yeah.

    Actually I gave up on modeling anything right before that, and a MLP-Fallout crossover fanfic got me back to it.

    And those little horses are actually good training.

    Sorry for the grave news, but this just happened: http://fav.me/d4rk9c2

    I was nearly done with the tank, only the treads where left to be modeled.

    I don't really think it is the hard drive though, so the models should be save.
    I made a backup 2 days ago, so even if, it wouldn't be that bad.

    could be either CPU, motherboard, power or RAM

    OS boot up works fine if he gets that far -> no HDD damage

    but he doesn't get there anymore, not even BIOS setup, so yeah
    one of the four

    Ah man that sucks... at least hopefully it's not the hard drive, I got tired of making new installs over the last year. Gah!

    I take it you don't have replacements of any of those?
    Does it give a beep pattern?
    What does it do? Power on and that is it? does it freeze? what?

    out of experience > take out harddrive NOW

    THAT OR DONT PRESS POWER

    if the motherboard is fried it could fry everything else if you keep it powered too long)

    Sorry for double post.

    Can anyone tell me here or write me a PM, explaining what you guys need rigged on the treads and wheels of the tank?

    Smithy might know, but I doubt anyone else does except Dizzyone and Drag. You'd have to somehow get in contact with them.

    you could also try decomp of other tanks in gcf and analyze rig points.

    From my own digging around the models folder:

    • Root bone preferrable in the center.
    • Axle bones for all wheels (For spinning)
    • Bones for all wheels (for suspension)
    • Bones for the tracks (For code side animation I'm guessing. So centered?)
    • Bone for the turret (For rotation)
    • Bone for Cannon
    • Bone for Muzzle of cannon

    All with a coherent naming convention so the monkeys don't get a headache. :)

    Edit: Oh and since you're doing the ML slung to the side, give that a muzzle bone too.

    Afaik, it's not supported in the current versions, but it's easy enough to throw in there.
