Hello, I did some graphical designing in solidworks which is a program usually used for process's like machining and 3d printing but thought maybe that my pieces could be translated to Unreal 5 as base models or with more time and detail as working models of machines or even buildings and gadgets if desired. I don't model humans or creatures because of the general nature of solidworks and because my artistic tendencies tend to be more towards things that can be machined, welded, or 3d printed. It took me approximately 300 hours to do this build so its not amazingly fast but since its of a finished game product or something that probably wont be used for a year or two at least I feel like I have plenty of time to continue modeling more things for Em-8er or for fun as community projects. This is a full 3d model but is easier to represent in pictures. The model is roughly to scale and I can change any feature as desired or make further adjustments if a different design all together is more desired.

If you would like the base files in a specific format please feel free to reach me here or on discord at Quadrana2#6657
I can also be found lurking on the em-8er discord. I would post the actual files but they are too big.

What if we had a tank like this on a desk as a night light/alarm clock, you press it & stands up and its cannons light up, a glow fills the room.

The Em8er tank guards its reapers at all times especially in the night because tsihu's can hear you snore!

Thankfully with advanced technology Reaper Em8er Tank also has a foam dart launcher if your alarm doesn't wake you up that's built in 2 micro foam missile 1 will land on your head followed by the Em8er theme tune looped until you give it a prod to stop

Its smart for a reason firing the 2nd missile knowing full well you have just turned it off temporarily to truely turn it off you must press the Em8er tank and insert secret code on the buttons.

If thats not possible... i'll wait for the tank ingame!

well i can make the file into an stl for 3d printing if youd like but making it stand up and down stuff thats out of my field of expertise.

I wouldn't even have a clue how to do any of this stuff, just dreaming again!

Did see remote control laser tanks toys and thought wow imagine that with these kind of Em8er tanks especially when they do the stand mode to fire over higher cover!
