Gaming Update #53 | Nod Obelisk of Light revision
Posted 23 November 2010 - 07:26 AM
The original Obelisk had some design flaws that were quickly spotted by you, our greatest critics. Lazy6Pyro felt he was up to the job, and transformed the rather bulky Obelisk into a perfect mix of deadliness and finesse.
So here it is, ladies and gentlemen, in all its sleekness: the revised Obelisk of Light!
[The Obelisk was originally modelled by Ric. The model revisions and the new texture were both done by Lazy6Pyro.]
Note that this model is not 100% complete yet; some work is still being put into the transparency effect of the crystal tip, and the logics behind the animated plasma disks. But we couldn't leave you hanging for too long, could we?

But yeah, thanks I guess. Took us quite some effort to get the proportions right. Which is usually where I come in - my eye for detail is one of the main reasons I'm on this team. It's pretty much my only job (besides posting news, recently), so I'm allowed to brag a bit, right?
Still, kudos to Lazy6Pyro for transforming my cut-n-paste redesign proposals into actual model changes.
