    That's right! I'm back!:)

    Sorry for vanishing a little, I had a college portfolio to make last month so things got hectic. But now for fun again!

    This is Metal Gear Ray from Metal Gear Solid 2, I've wanted this unit since like, ever, so best way to get it was to make it myself. Great fun. The unit has four attacks, so you get to pick and choose a little, it's also my first biped unit, so I hope the walk looks decent.

    Here's the file:
    Metal Gear Ray

    And the previews, including a quite lengthy animated preview, enjoy!:D

    Very cool. Nice job. Looks like he could be a bionic bug for your mod Supa. ;)

    Thanks everyone, and it's made for whatever you see fit Supa, and yes Attack D is a laser (actually a water laser, but same idea)

    I've always planned to do Rex and Arsenal, in fact they're part of the reason I learned to become a unit maker. So they're on the to-do list, but being in college, the unit factory goes pretty slow.

    As for Ray, uh, he does have his mouth-laser attack, so not sure what you're missing there. I searched alot for the authentic sounds, couldn't find them, so I had to make my own, but I hope they work as well anyways.

    Well I have two units to do before I get to Rex, and 7 after that before Arsenal. After my portfolio is handed in at the end of this month, I'll still have classes, but it'll be a big load off my shoulders, and some unit making could be done. I expect I can have Rex done before the end of April, hopefully much earlier (but I'm off school April 20ish, so I'll have A LOT more time then and progress will be much faster). As for an ETA on Arsenal, I'd like to tell you, but that'd be similar to calculating exactly when and where the next meteor will hit the earth.:crazyeye:

    My to-do list is in my signature, sorry, the order is based on the order I recieved the requests in, so it wouldn't be fair to rearrange them.

    This is from this unit's readme file:

    So if you want the laser attack instead of, say, the knee-missile attack (Attack B), go into the unit's INI file and under 'Animations' change Metal Gear RayAttackB.flc to Metal Gear RayAttackD.flc. Then under 'Sound Effects' change Metal Gear RayAttackB.wav to Metal Gear RayAttackD.wav

    There is a 'Defend' animation spot, right below Attack 3, I've never seen what that does, that's your best bet, if that doesn't work (and tell me if it does cause that'd be sweet), 3's the limit.

    Someone was experimenting with the defend, and i think they found that occassionally the defend animation played when the defending unit is attacked

    but don't quote me :)
