In a bit later then expected update, I will showcase the updated Revenant vehicle textures,

the new Raden and the completely new Creeper.


After previous update I received feedback about two things that several people found lacking. The first of those was the lack of details of the textures. It basicly boiled down that they looked like brown blobs with a small exclusion here and there. After annoying several other modders / modellers I received several improvement points. To make a long story short: I spend the months between previous update and now updating every Revenant vehicle texture. Not non-stop of course, but figuring out what looks good, applying this to the various damage states' textures and doing this for all vehicles is time-consuming. I also took the moment to fix some small things I overlooked, like incorrect UWV mappings and other texture errors. The end result is shown here:

Revenant Tier 1 vehicles

Showcase of the current Revenant tier 1 ground vehicles. Shown are the Cobra, Pandora, Construction Crane and Harvester

Revenant Tier 2 vehicles

Showcase of the current Revenant tier 2 ground vehicles. Shown are the Pyradon, Valkyrie, Baron and Creeper.

Revenant Tier 2 vehicles

Showcase of the current Revenant tier 3 ground vehicles. Shown are the Raden, Venom, Duke and Duchess.

Revenant Tier 2 vehicles

Showcase of the current Revenant misc ground vehicles. Shown are the Hammerhead, MCT (both normal and shortened variants), Cargo Truck and Fuel Truck.

The second thing people mentioned is that the Raden model looked a bit too much like a certain WW2 tank. After some ideas, this is the new Raden:

Revenant Raden Tank Destroyer (new model)

Compare to the old model: Moddb.com

Last but not least, when I wrote previous update, I mentioned I had finished all Revenant models. However, I forgot the smallest Revenant vehicle, the Creeper:

Revenant Creeper Demolition Vehicle

A Creeper is a guided bomb on tracks, with only one purpose: demolition duty. The 100kg HE charge is large enough to deal significant damage to fortifications, cripple vehicles, and outright obliterate infantry. The chassis itself is no taller then halfway a man's knee-height. Overall, the Creeper is small enough to be transportable in Cobras, Pandoras or other transportation vehicles.

Creepers are guided by remote control, while their operators stay behind the frontlines. While not as advanced as the robotics used by their Legion counterparts, they can function just as well, and are overall much easier and cheaper to maintain.

This concludes this update. Enjoy your Christmas / holidays, and have a good new year.
