I’m interested to know what you lot think the best & the worst voxels in D-day are. So have a look though the site & tell me if you think some of the units could do with more work & which one is your favourite.

The best ones will be short listed & we will have a poll to find the no.1 D-day unit :p

PS: Personally I like the A12 Matilda the most & the Loraine 37L the least (its too dam small to fit any detailing on >_<).

Mig, you ask the impossible. Well, at least very difficult, because of the medium. I mean, simply put nobody could squeeze enough details intgo say a goliath for it to look decent, even if it was a huge voxel shrunken down... just because it's only so many pixels ingame. The opposite is true too. Some of your larger voxels are just godly in their detail because it could be put in...

I mean, just any of these are wonderfull.

So to be fair, a lot would come down to the medium size ones, where it's been mostly good too. I mean...


That's excellent for it's size.


You did a very good job on keeping this both true-to-life and asthetically pleasing.


I just love how wonderful this turned out...

Of course, there are less than perfect ones. Sadly, often excellent in other areas. I understand the limitations of the medium though. Such as these two voxels have similar front ends, cluttered with necessary bits to keep them true to life...


But the schemes used leave the Hoki clear and sharp in the south facing view, where as the stug gets blurry. Although that's not to say I actually like the Japanese scheme, because to be honest, I never really did. Reminds me way too much of the color all the soviet voxels made for the public were back in 2003.



Now, many of your voxels could use minor fixes, but are still very far from 'bad', so picking a 'worst' is a bit of a toughie...

I mean, this is a good voxel, nay excellent, despite the fact the wheels aren't so great (but far better than the one you gave to me a while back) and the game messed up the cab to have only one support beam... which looks odd...


This is in the same league as the 262 voxel, but suffers from lack of defintion around the cockpit. Maybe lowering the global lighting values would help more in this case than redoing it...


So yeah, hard picks all around.

My personal favorite is the Vorshechlick... er, whatever it's called. Just superb detail and nice tracks, canvas and glass to boot. Nothing looks overpowering or out of place. Touch to do on this kind of vehicle.


The one I find 'worst' is another Japanese tank, in part for lack of detail and blandness... and in part because the front seems to have normals issues on the southern facing one...


This isn't including a lot of the naval voxels, as they can't help but be bland in most cases, like the Kirov.
Being a total douche.

Yes, I can only pick out those few "not perfect", it's too hard to have a single favourite.
And meteor need some refine, and also B-29's nose, some Japanese tank's front.

My favorite voxel is the Pzkfw VI Königstiger AND my least favorite is Lorraine 37 L. BTW are you going to add the list of infantries in your site www.revenge.cncguild.net

Favorites are Mk.VIII and Char 2c, and you know it :thumbsupsmiley:
I'm afraid I agree on the blandness of some of the Japanese tanks, and I don't particually like the scheme... A couple of aircraft like the greif could use work...

Yay constructive criticism :thumbsupsmiley:

I mean, just any of these are wonderfull.

It’s ironic that all of them have bad normals on the right facing (look at the tracks) I’m working on fixing that tho.

Although that's not to say I actually like the Japanese scheme, because to be honest, I never really did

I did try several camo schemes on the jap tanks but because of their small size it just looked too messy so I went with the plain colour. I think I’ll try a darker shade tho & see how that looks, as some of them look really bright at certain angles.

This is in the same league as the 262 voxel, but suffers from lack of defintion around the cockpit.

Making the cockpit darker should sort that out.

My personal favorite is the Vorshechlick... er

The Voroshilovets & as well as the Bm-13 was made by Major Gilbear BTW so credit goes to him for that one.

The one I find 'worst' is another Japanese tank

K I see the problem there, I’ll fix that when I get round to working on the jap stuff again.

hmmmm difficult to chose man :ohmy:

my least favourite is probably the soviet Ba-64, looks like an RC toy to be frank; But as said before it's hard to do better because of it's small size. :thumbsupsmiley:

If I had to pick a favourite, I might well go for the american Iowa class battleship...I could change my mind in time though as there are many contestants for the favourite place :D

Best: Grille (that camo is just plain perfect), worst: Greif (those dots don't fit the camo - Königstiger suffers from it too). So that update just ripped me apart... :thumbsupsmiley:

My favorite would have to be the American T95, not in the graphical quality department, just because it looks cool.

When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.
Razgriz intrerpretation
