Arachnatron is like a mechanical spider with a living brain on top. Some very nice model and skin work, and love the brain animations :D I couldn't see any 'uglies' or weird mishaps, so the conversion from Q3 came out pretty nicely! The sounds are pretty interesting, too. Some weird form of mechanical grunting ;)
Arachnatron's original author is Demon, with skins by Dark Horizon, and sounds by Limbo.

The Arachnatron. He has returned form the depths of hell. This time with a new style. Let me stress this is NOT supposed to look exactly like the arachnatron form DOOM, but is supposed to be what I think he should have looked like. I am especially fond of the soft body animation on the brain. It was completely done by hand with bends, twists, and morph targets, over physiqued max bones. I know there is no LOD's. Since this is mostly a demo reel peice, I felt the time spent on it would be better used on the other models I have plans for. And there is a small issue with the walk/run/backpedal: the max bones were extremely difficult to loop well. I edited curves and even placed keyframes outside of the active range and it didnt seem to solve the problem. As a result the walk/run/backpedal cycles seem a little bit abrupt at the point where it loops. Also the jump isn't quite exagerated as much as it should be. The bones started wigging out and twitching if i moved the legs below that point. So it is what it is. Anyways, ill quit my rambling now and let you play :) Additional Credits to : id Software, ================================================================ * Play Information * New Sounds : YES CTF Skins : YES * Construction * LOD : nope sorry Poly Count : 950 polys Vert Count : 477 Verts Skin Count : 3 Base : id softwares original sprites from DOOM, but entirely new 3d mesh.
