Description
My first submission to the Workshop and my first attempt at making a completely original* character model from start to finish. This was modeled in 3dsMax, sculpted in Mudbox, textured using Photoshop+Mudbox and compiled with the help of WallWormModelTools.

I tried to make the model as "fairly" as possible so that players using this skin would not find themselves at any advantage or disadvantage in the game, visibility should be very comparable to the original tank model. The model is slightly higher poly than valves original tank (6812 instead of 5810) mostly due to my personal incompetence and the added detail on the fingernails, toe mails and eyes - but I would not expect any noticable performace difference.

I am releasing this as a beta version because although this is fully functional in its current format there is definitely still room for some improvements to be made, mostly concerning the rigging (animations) and texture mapping.

For fun I also made some minor edits to the tanks theme music and one or two tank sounds - with my game settings it makes little difference, however if people would prefer this model with the original tank sounds then please let me know and I will post another version.

As this is in the beta phase all feedback would be more than welcome, and especially any advice or input from more experienced modelers.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my first submission, gm_tank!

*All work is totally original with the exception of the mesh for the fingers, which was derived from the original tank model for rigging simplicity and the eyeball texture which was borrowed from another special infected.

I play with friends in friends only games, is there anyway we can get a massive, huge resident evil tyrant tank without music, but very loud deep rumbling foot steps? We've all been plsying this game for so many years we need new stuff to keep it fresh, and hopefully scare the crap out of us. There are no huige tank mods anywhere to be found, you'd have the attention of anyone looking for a new tank. Whoich is pretty ironic considering you would think the tank would haev the most mods for it. thanks very much.

Please make a version compatible with custom tank music!
