Tank model from Quake

Post by EvilGrins » Sat Mar 27, 2021 9:20 am

Found this recently, has its own ReadMe which is handy though a bit confusing. As it says something about the model having its own HUD but I didn't see anything like that.

Decent model with 4 skins, 2 main ones with gibbed versions. It looks like a slow mover and has heavy footfall sounds.

Most interesting is it holds the weapons correctly but differently. Sometimes in the right "hand", sometimes in the left "hand", and occasionally moves it up to a shoulder mounted weapon.

Has all team colors.

That means it has Tank HUD icons (Status/Belt) which the original version doesn't have. So in your HUD as a Player, in the original you will see the default Male as the Status icon in the top right of the screen - for this new version of Q2Tank, you should see the Tank 'outline'.

The new version also includes some of the Tank sounds from Q2 which the original doesn't - these should make the Player sound a bit more like the Tank (movement, hit, death, etc sounds). It doesn't look like the TankBot has these sounds though.

A slight downside is the names of the .u and the skins' .utx files are the same as those of the original version.
