T29 Heavy tank IMPLEMENTED

Post by DoomsdayDragonfire » Wed Apr 10, 2019 2:51 pm

With the arrival of German Panther II and Tiger II (aka king tiger), the Soviet IS and IS2, on the very end of the war, the US army requested a tank able to compete and overcame these tanks. So from the M6 experience, they started a better heavy tank. The T29. Althought it didn't reached in time for the war, the engineers had put the best of what was seen in the war on it.

Breaking the barrier of "work for the job" to "put the job to work for you" is a thing that i want to reach someday aswell... Probably i should make some notes about it...

very nice!

on russian tanks i saw bigger hull units, so i let some units "gun" to overlap to right meaning bigger images than 64 px, example:

so if this unit would be bigger if u had more pixels you can use the same thing.

currently the size is like the sherman but this shoulfd bebigger imho.

I see, there is still some free space so i guess i can increase it a bit, but i don't like too much the idea of overlaping, like i think all soviet tank imgs are not scaled correctly, they are too much exagerated compared to bigger vehicles of other nations, one perfect example is that T40, Jagdtiger and Maus are big enough to deserve a small overlap, and still, they don't borrow more than 10 extra pixels or 64x74, that IS2 is about 105px wide, it should be on the size of the current T-34, and T-34 be on the size of the other nations counterparts, like the sherman, maybe just 1px longer...

Right, now they are on the perfect size.
Not so much bigger than m6 and still not as big as maus. And much less bigger than soviet vehicles.
