Felt the need for a smaller psychic sensor, so I made one.

Its fully animated, includes buildups and cameo. My use of AA when rendering creates a somewhat softer visual then RA2's normal style, but otherwise I think it matches pretty well.

Comments of all sorts are appreciated. Beyond that, enjoy!

That's actually really good. Could be used for quite a lot of different things too, like a stealth generator.

Heh just what I was looking for the other day. Thanks for this, it's rare to see such a high quality building assets with all the required elements (such as buildup) be released these days. Altough it does not entirely match the Westwood Yuri structure visual style, it does not stick out too much.

Looks great! I definitely have a use for this, and Speeder's textless cameo for it is much appreciated as well.

I'd like to see Speeder's cameo alongside other Yuri cameos. The original Yuri set use a very bright sky and all cameos have a more painted background. I'd suggest applying some kind of Photoshop filter to the sky to make it blend a little better.

Or replace unfitting bright background on Yuri's cameos with a darker one. #Tongue

This should be spotlighted?

Great work Droke.

Great work Droke. This would have been a very good candidate for the SHP contest. Wink

The only thing i would complain about is the damage stage. There the rotating part could have some parts of the antennae missing or broken instead of only rotate by some degree to the side.

But none the less
Spotlighted!

Missed the spotlighting. Sweet. Smile

I had consitered damaging it like that. Also adding icecicles for the snow version. However, both had the same issue. I used a 1/3 rotation animation. I'd either have had to make it a full rotation to avoid a looping snap.

As for the obvious 'why not do that?', the image was rendered with AA on, meaning it had to manually clean it before use. SHP Builder's color replacer really helps, but still requires some manual work. Quite boring after the second or third ingame tweak. Extending the animation length 3x the norm wasn't appealing.

I know what you mean. I was facing the same issue when i did the TI radar.
To get around this, i rendered the turret with AA on, the background color green and "don't anti-aliase against background" set on in 3dsmax.
Then i rendered it again with AA off, the background again green and the whole non moving building changed to a green material which looks exactly like the background.
In the third step i used gimp to copy the green part of the non-AA rendered frames over to the AA-rendered frames. This way only the anti-aliased turret was left with a smooth AA render and sharp non-blurring borders.

The fourth step was a simple png to shp conversion, without any further time-consuming postprocessing in shp-builder.

LKO, he's using Cinema4D.

And that makes it even more spectacular.

i'd really, really, love to see an impaled GI on the center staff. Not that it's going to happen or has a purpose. Aside from that, it's awesome.

I have tried rendering an object with AA on, then rendering a second version with everything but the background and remap set to a pure black, with AA disabled. However, the AA sinks into the frame just a bit. Making the entire thing kinda pointless as you still get penty of blue peaking through.

What I do is simply render the image frames with AA on, then switch the model into the background's material and render the shadows, AA off. From there I use SHP Builder's color switching tool to clean up certain colors. Anything near blue get set to index 0, then stuff like blueish greys become set to grey. Ect. Remap is the hardest, but about the same. Then I just loop the animation looking for spots that didn't cut to background right, or snap in odd ways. Those are delt with manually. Its actually fairly quick.

Something wrong with makeup building in snow ingame: When I placed a building somewhere, the buildup animation won't appear. What gives?
