Well I noticed the lack of them"specially the VXL designed" so enjoy this one

Smile

it needs a SHP building to match it as a base for it, but you can use your original flak cannon base in the game or I may be will upload one here later

This isn't Flak. Flak is one-barreled gun of 88mm caliber.

a) this is offtopic. If anything comment about the voxel
b) you're wrong: 2 cm Flakvierling 38

@truegrit:
can you show an ingame image?
Right now i fear it can become quite pixelated when those 1 voxel thick details are rendered ingame.
The plain color and no texture might also turn out very simple.

Flakvierling, not Flak.

Flak is an abbreviation of the German word FliegerabwehrKanone, which translates to "anti-aircraft gun". Flakvierling is also a German word that roughly translates to "quad anti-aircraft gun". There is also the word Flakzwilling which means a duel/twin Flak weapon.

The German WW2 88mm Flak 18/36 is arguably the most famous Flak cannon but there have also been many other Flak weapons ranging from 20mm to 150mm, some arranged in single, twin, quad & even six barreled configurations.

You are right also because I should have called it "anti-aircraft turret" not a flak turret but I just like to use the word flak Smile
But I believe now you have been given many examples refers the the FLAK wasn't only one-barreled gun of 88mm caliber, you can check the history of the flak guns here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_anti-aircraft_guns

sorry I mean anti-aircraft guns Wink

OR better, just ask the ENCYCLOPEDIA of WW2, THE MIGEATER! Cool

First, I'm sorry for replying late and actually I was logging in the past 2 days via my phone and I havn't the time enough to my PC.

Anyway about your question unfortunately my stupid FormatFactory programme gives me errors whenever I try to convert the PCX screenshot into any format, so... I can't post a screenshot, sorry

But what is wrong with design? Any way it's not my design from the scratch, Actually I found it in one of my veeeeery old hard disks, but surly I DID some modifying to it for example It was six barelled and had, the coloring and it was a one section, I did even changed the barrels.

But I think the turret it self needs some smoothing right?

1 voxel details almost always get rendered bad in game (at some angles) according to experiences from past, so usually an ingame picture is needed for vxls to make sure it works fine.
As you have got ingame yourself, did it turn out to be as good as you thought?

nope Sad

In fact it doesn't look good okay, but also not that bad, but ummm Confused  I just needed a voxel modeled flak gun I couldn't find a good one in the forum other than self propelled anti-aircraft guns which is simply turrets deployed on tanks or vehicles SO when I wanted a classic traditional replacement for original flak cannon in the game I used this one, at least it gives you the feeling of FLAK GUNS!
while the SHP modeled one is simply dump, since it doesn't has the recoiling effect

anyway I will do my best to fix the turret "I don't how I will do that" but I will try.
