the idea of tanks and halftracks is cool - but with a guy on top, it would look too unrealistic - the person would look, too fake...

Ya, I guess your right. It would look way to fake,and he would be in the same position all the time. But I just hope kermz will make some halftracks.

Ya, your right TMM. I bet Kermz is really busy with making so many plugins , but if he can make them that would be great!! But if there is a plugin maker thats not so busy, will you please make these plugins, because I really need them. Thanks.

sorry - after re-reading that post i sounded like a bastard evil

didn't mean any offence by it...

flip: the object would look less fake than a person in this case - a halftrack is pretty simple to model, and if the mesh is already done then ur sorted, but a person would be hard to do in summit like 3ds max etc...

Valid point about the half track looking fine and the guy
looking dodgy. After all the half-track is a relatively simple
geometric metallic shape - exactly the kind of thing that
renderers do very well.

Whereas the guy would be a complex organic shape that
would have to move slightly with innertia and momentum.
Precisely the kind of thing that renderers do badly.
