    Next Cougar, probably will be the Madcat (not Mk II yet), which is done, just needing some rework here and there.

    After it, Zeus probably will be the next, as it is in advanced stage of completion, then followed by Fafnir ;)

    Counting Whammy's models, the release schedule will change a bit, with some of his models inserted between the release of my models...

    Shiftdel,

    Is the Mauler available for us public types yet? If so, where? It looks beautiful!

    Hey shiftdel, the title of this pic says Mech-warrior although I doesn't look like a 'Mechwarrior' Mech, could you ID it for me..?

    And if I may add, the partial source of the Mad Cat's name. The Marauder's abbreviation is "MAD" and the Catapult's is "CAT", and since the Mad Cat has the arms and torso of the Marauder and the legs and missile pods of the Catapult, the Inner Sphere just went with the obvious designation of Mad Cat.

    As said by Widget, it's a Marauder, which is a copy of Macross' Zentraudi Officer Pod.

    It was not included on Mechwarrior series (but MW2, maybe) because of copyright issues, but I think it is in one of the MekTek Mechpacks.

    It is also one of the coolest mechs IMHO :D

    Zecks did a nice copy of the Marauder. If you can contact him, he may share it with you. Unfortunately, my copy is on my desktop system, which is in for repair still.

    Thanks for the ID and info guys, I can go and do a spot of research now I know its name. I'm guessing there's a bunch of colour schemes. * the green just caught my eye ~ would make a nice coat of paint if it could be reproduced as 3D textures. :thumb::thumb:

    I'm still working on revised Novacat's PDO, it will be finished on a few days, I hope.

    Till there, I will post a WIP pic of a MW4 vehicle :D

    This is another MW4 truck that I started long ago, and was on hold till today, as I was bored to finish all the other stuff and wanting something easy to work with ;)

    It is a very simple model, I was planning to use it as a tutorial for design a model from scratch, using orthographic views as reference, but I couldn't by lack of time :(

    Do you think you could do some of the tanks/APCs? I especially liked the Bulldog and Myrmidon.

    Yes, although I don't have enough reference pics to model them (I do have the textures).

    However there is a guy from other forum who is going to extract all the stuff from MW4, including buildings and vehivles.

    I don't know if he succeed, as I don't have a word from him about it for some time...

    If you need refs, I think I can dig up the tanks for you, or maybe I could even extract them.

    MW4 vehicles models are really easy to model, I think I can model the ones that you requested, I would need just few game shots, just to see where the things attach to each other on the model, as the texture fills most of the orthographic information that I would need (hope) ;)

    If you can extract them if would make the job even easier, as the only work would be to clean the mesh, I couldn't extract any model from MW4 to date, only the textures, as the meshes are hidden in some way into the game files.

    Hmm. I looked through the files, and you're right; I didn't find anything that might be a model file except two which are labeled "CLANPAK" and "ISPAK", and they don't have the individual mech files. I'll play a few missions I know have the Myrm and the B-dog, turn on the invulnerability setting, and see if I can get a few screenshots before my lancemates tag them. :thumb:
