Hmm ... a lot of AKs have to be in such a vehicle shooting windows ... its kind of a interesting problem here, if i make them a part of the vehicle, i would have to compensate the variability of the weapons in each of the window (AK(S)-74M / -47 /AKM /PKM) ... on the other hand if there would be a fixing position defined for the weapons themselves as a separate model, it has to be fitted to the window-grips for them, thus complicating animations and scripts a little  ...



(the circular windows - one of them has an armature for a MG)





The size is right compared to the human and Ural. Looks like an sardine-can if you realize how much people should fit in.

I cant wait to use the wheel animation (as has hrrhrr used on the buggy) on my little "box" (a soviet afghan war term for column vehicles).  :D

Wow. That looks perfect .. Low grass mode is sort of a bummer.

Are you planning to texture the whole thing? It is a bit too shiny the way it is now. Has that showroom shine on it.

i actually newer played with grass at all .. also it might be the unusual format of my LCD (isnt 3:4 but more like 21:23 and it makes close things look funny sometimes - like the opt. ilusion effect doe :D )

Yes, actually both Ural and BTR, but first i have to do the interior and get a better hold of the UV tool in Blender (have some issues with pealing oranges there). You can see the periscopes are missing right now - is much easyer to make them from inside-out. That will take a while. Seems it will come out to annual model-releases form me - await it whole at summer. :D :D Dont worry, i try to script it driving till Silvester.

 ... could there be a possibility to show actual vehicle RPM in addition to the speed in the HUD (if being inside a car) ? Speculating around engine props and at them based scripts, speed indicator is nice to adjust speedometer and other speed related equipment/functions at real time in OT. An actual RPM indication would be a great addition to certain tests and adjustments ...

 ... also, does Math.sqrt work ? Cant make it work somehow (takes value as undefined). Would need that a lot for an animation.

P.S.:
 ... started working a litle at the ural interiors as a sidework, Blender to OT UVs application:

Well ... what an nice test outcome - so terrible its actually magnificent :D :D



 ... are there any limits on how many and how big UVs there can be on an single model (etc. their pixel size) ? Seems i will need to apply a lot of them and the most of them with almost all types (normal, env., refl.).

This thingy is odd ... 5 textures in all - every one trough multiple objects and there this problem with only one of them for all its parts :

probably you didnt name the vertgroups right ?

 i think in blender you have 3 important names  first two same name Mesh and Vertgroups and all other textures ?
 I recall i had different name for mesh and vert groups (UV) and it gave me same error

 Strange i was looking this thread 10 mins ago trying to learn turrets :) .
