I was sat with the radio on and I decided I may as well put pen to paper and draw some random stuff, what I came up with was a weird dozer type thing and a vehicle that looked like some kind of transport shuttle with tracks that took up the whole of each side of the body.
To take this further I made them in 3dsmax and they ended up as voxels, I made camo textures in Allied and Soviet colours and then made some more models. I made 10 models, 5 in each camo, and have put 8 of them into RA2 so far. The large dozer thing ended up as the Soviet Harvester, and the tracked shuttle as the Allied Harvester. To save time naming the units have general names, like in the days of Red Alert 1 where a tank was Light, Medium, Heavy or Mammoth.

If i get this done and looking reasonably good, I might upload it somewhere as a fun mod. Sadly some of the normals (most) are pretty, well, crap but there you go.

Thay look cool :lol:

The Soviet APC looks a bit too small.
What normals do you use? It just looks to bright - maybe you could edit the script and make each setting a bit darker.

If you could make buildings in 3DSmax and convert them to shps you could almost make an small TC.

Too many people think that a TC has to have everything, but just a con yard, power plant and a war factory, then some cool voxels like those would make an exelent TC. You don't even need 2 teams, it can just be 1 team Vs it-self.

The norms are whatever the 3ds2vxl script makes them into, i'll probably try messing with different auto normals settings tomorrow. The APC does look kinda small, now you mention it, easily fixed mind. You can do 3ds buildings but you have to get a really good looking model to fit in with other structues.

That's pretty cool.
How you gonna make the wreck stay after the unit goes boom?

I'll have a go with the the normals in a few minutes, it's annoying that I have to keep swapping PCs.
One to mod, one to surf (the net).

Edit>>

The normals have improved a bit.

Everything except the Quad and MBT look better. The harvester is still very bright.

The replacement for the Apoc uses my Gazelle voxel, but resized and given the Soviet camo rather than flat colour like the one below.

Let me tell you it looks alot better than that version.
