    Why does the old concept gets abandoned and replaced by a completely different concept. This new iteartion doesn't even look like a Robot. C3PO with muscles. Hmm. I can agree the old concept wasn't received well by the community, but why should every single char well received by everyone. If I see this in-game, I wouldn't see a robot but an human kind of military model. I really hope the new phase would look better but as this is kind of the base, I doubt it.

    Looking forward for community models.

    feedback given.

    I could not see the stream, I'll try to catch it later.

    But you're really going in a good direction with the robots ! I like it a lot. I just want to know to which "tier" it belongs, the second maybe ?
    I can already see what kind of "improvements" the corporations could bring on it.

    Love it, eqpecially with the grey and kaki skin on the last pic. First pic, then, is a bit too power-rangers-like to me...
    Also in the stream, you showed some renders with a concrete corridor background. Is that a new wip map ?

    Another point is that I don't think spreading bots characters on 3 levels is a good thing. Would be better IMO if they were divided in two teams like in UT2K4 :
    - one with your bot + one body variant and 4 heads variants
    - anbother one as the corrupt, based on Shraznar's concepts : one male body with Xan or cyclop face + one female body with two face variants aswell.

    No need to start over... you listened to feedback from everyone (not just me of course) which I think, judging from feedback on the stream chat, and my own immediate impressions, has paid off and will pay off. It just has that UT vibe now.

    My suggestion (only one) for improving it would be to create a slight wraparound effect to the visor. It needn't be much, even just splitting it in the middle and slanting slightly to both sides so it remains angular... but I get the impression that, while it looks great from the front, its field of vision might be a bit narrow? It also ends up a bit plain from the side view.

    Or perhaps this kind of shape: ]

    or, add a thinner slit on the sides.

    Aside from that, I feel like this is one of the best unique models ever created for a UT game, let alone for the robot faction.

    Well done to all involved.

    Reminds me of a cylon:




    and also the NO FUN ALLOWED robot:




    Which is good, because it looks like classic sci-fi. Looks tough, but sensible. I'd like to see these in game for sure, and if I were a newbie to the franchise, I'd like to know more about them. I hope you KEEP the thick shoulders and thighs - they really pop and make it seem like a strong machine built to withstand some damage.

    I gotta admit, the very first screens that were put on stream with the team colors REALLY hit me the wrong way. It's hard to explain why, but that first image just kinda looks hideous to me. Then I saw the other renders with the black paint, and the base renders without any paint on it at all and I lightened up 100%. The last one with the speckle paint on it looks really sweet too. Looking back at them all side by side, it's hard for me to pin down why I dislike the first pic wth the team colors so much, but really like the other ones. But it goes to show that color and accents go a long way to how something like this makes a first impression on your eye when you see it. Call it "mojo" or something, I dunno.

    Anyway, everyone's got their own little idea of what they want to see out of robots, and I can really tell that y'all want to blaze a new trail and do something new for UT4. I may have my own wish lsit that's different from someone else's, but I think most of us can agree that they look good, and we'd be happy to see them in game!!

    Here is my work in progress renders from the stream today. Comments, crits, questions welcome. I'll fold in as many changes as I can as long as it doesn't involve starting over.

    Completely new ideas should be saved for a new thread, I'd like to keep this thread focused on improving what we have not discussing what we will do with future bots.

    Hey Riddick, glad you see an improvement. Could you show me which 2k4 robots you thought were way cooler and what aspects appeal to you? Maybe we can pull some design elements from them in future bots. Also, examples of what you think is a mean looking bot would be helpful as we all have different perspectives on what constitutes cool and mean.

    saw the stream, huge improvement if robots are gonna have 3 tiers. but both 2k4 robot and cyber faction were way cooler so I hope you really crank up the look and intimidating features in tier 2 and 3

    Like I said in the stream I'd love to see that concept modeled. How about you tackle it Fartuess?

It is simply our first entry level bot design so there will be tons of time to discuss how Xan and the more evolved designs will look.
    Ekhem.

    Also, a reminder this is just another WIP, although a bit further along than the first bot I introduced. I'll update this thread with the new WIP renders after I show them on the stream tomorrow and everybody can give me their crits, comments, questions, etc. and as always I will fold in as many changes I can before finalizing the design.

    I look forward to sharing, it's been a while!

    PS - I'd love to see either of those LG designs get finished, love them both. Post in their threads and encourage them to carry on!

    how long has it been in the lore since the creation of the first Xan (mk1?) in OG UT to current times UT?

    been rolling something around in my head a while (years literally) and knowing this may help what I am thinking.
    It has been stated that this UT is a reboot. So I'll say no time ? It's (supposedly) still is the MK1 ?
