    The conservation of polys whilst still having a very recognisable silhouette is lovely.

    Thermobaric Bomb is a-go.

    From Left to Right;

    Heavy Torpedo
    Thermobaric Bomb
    Close Assault Rocket
    MLRS Rocket
    Supersonic Missile
    Grenade
    Super-Cavitating Torpedo

    Also all this weapon design reminds me that I really need to go back through my models and get the scaling right, gotta get out of the SupCom habit of doing things at whatever scale and fixing it in the code! xD

    Fixing it in the code should really be an option...

    Eh, it's not a bad thing per-say, just a different way of going about it.

    It's only really an issue now because we're finally getting stuff in-game now so it's like an "ohhhh yeeeeeeahhhhh....." moment, once I get things set-up it'll be super easy.

    That's true, but it's nice to have the "quick fix" option.

    Requesting this to be renamed to the Clopse Assault Rocket so I don't feel so bad for misreading it.

    I guess with your ties to RCBM this stops being a modeling thread and becomes a modding thread.

    Modeling threads in general belong here (RCBM or otherwise), ever since it was possible to mod them in.

    Doesn't change the facts thought, the thread isn't going to accomplish it's goal anymore.

    I think the downside is that this move will significantly limit the visibility of this thread, as 'modding' tends to put people off (I'd imagine many uses never visit the modding forum at all so now this thread is essentially invisible).

    I'd argue that there is some excellent information contained within this thread that might be interesting to all members of the community, and a few choice threads like this may be worthwhile in general discussion to get people interested in modding.

    Summary: I personally vote that this thread be moved back into general discussion :)

    second.

    Why?

    It's been "possible" to put them in for over a month, but now that someone has, this can't be in GD anymore?

    That's spectacularly lame.

    If anyone decides to do a weekly modding roundup, knights designs will make it into there anyway, given that they're top quality.

    I agree, mine was moved as well. :(

    But I guess it's just how it goes!

    Should all mod threads to be moved to general discussion, for visibility? If not, why this one?
    General discussion isn't simply a "more popular/visible" modding forum.

    This isn't really a modding thread. Knight is making models and showing them off. The fact that RCBM is using them is irrelevant and any in-game screenshots will be posted in there anyway. Also why move this topic now? It's been in general discussion since forever.

    I have to agree with you guys, this thread is NOT a mod thread it is a model thread which can also be seen as a fanart thread. So threads like this have as much a right to be in general discussion as for example, erotic burritos screenshots thread since they can both be classed as forms of fanart.

    EDIT:
    This post includes not only this thread, but other purely model based threads.

    EDIT2:
    Crap just realised how old the thread is XD.
    Sorry for the necro, keep forgetting that its 2015 now not 2014.
