    UPDATED: 3/20/06 - I updated the model to be brighter in-game. Playing around with it, I thought it seemed way too dark compared to the other units.

    This is my first unit model for Civ4, the hero's tank from the NES game Blaster Master. Here's a link to info about the game, if you've never heard of it: http://bmunderground.chaosr.com/01_games_bm01.html

    The tank is named S.O.P.H.I.A. the 3rd in the game's instruction manual, but don't ask me what it stands for. :lol: I just like the way the tank looks, and wanted it in my game.

    The model has a polygon count of 1242.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. :)

    :lol: Not yet. :p That would look cool though, wouldn't it? Maybe have the unit jump everytime you press the "B" key. :lol:

    I just updated the model by making the materials I used brighter. I just noticed a while ago that the unit seemed way too dark in the game.

    Now you should be able to see the detail a bit better. :)
