    I think animation works perfectly. I just can't turn the propeller in the right direction.

    The model is a bit awkward since the propellers have to rotate around the P-axis, which cannot be rotated full 360 degree without messing with the other axis. Also the propeller do not align 100% spatially with the rest of the model, which makes the rotation a bit wobbly.

    I have added a dummy node for the positioning, which allows to set the nodes of the propeller to be set to 0 and rotate them around the R axis and have modified the kf files accordingly. Also I moved the "Editable Mesh" node of the propeller around a bit to reduce the wobbling. Seems to be working fine in NifSkope, hope it does so as well in-game.

    Have fun. :)

    What interests you next? Just curious.

    At this point you've done so many citysets for me and others, for that I am greatly appreciative Hrochland. I don't know what is left, but I'm wondering if your interested in doing another.

    But what is left?

    -Hittites: Besides the reconstructed wall, the lion gate, the humanoid statues and sphinxes, not enough to go on for a set.

    -Ethiopia: Besides African huts and Timbuktu style, there isn't anything African when it comes to citysets I think an Ethiopian set would be cool if your willing and able.

    Best screenshot comes fro Age of Empires 2 The African Kingdoms, I've seen some other places in screenshots but they are mostly old castles and unrelated things, surprisingly little besides castles and churches.

    But here is the screenshot from that game:



    Similiar ironically to old Carthagian archtecture(Phoenician really) and that Hittite wall I mentioned.

    If your interested let me know.

    Maybe a futuristic sci fi city set? Something like Simcity: Cities of Tomorrow.
    Just an idea.

    The Age of Empire screenshot has many features similar to the cityset that some use for egytp. It would only be more complicated, more rugged, and thus larger.

    I like the idea of a future cityset, especially a picture with hovering elements. I don't have much time now, but I'll try to model it.

    That would be pretty awesome Hrochland. The thing with such a set is it leaves a lot to your imagination.

    I'll see about reskinning and and attempting to make an Ethiopian cityset, with my limited skills.

    I appreciate it! Good work! I especially appreciate all those models you made of Middle-earth things back in the day - they are being put to use in my mod. :)
