    Well if you look at the link on the main page (ThunderIsleYoungBird.jpg) leads me to think it is a mob on the island and nothing more.
    I saw your title, and was fully intending on coming here to deliver the verbal equivalent of a punch in the dick.

    Looks like its based on the "link" between dinosaurs and birds... what was it called?

    So, remember, this mount is the Raven Lords great-great-great-great grandaddy.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    It seens is not a Raven lord reskin, you can see it even fly, but as someone said before, it may not be a mount just a mob

    And anyways, I've never understood the hate against remodeling.

    WoW is an ENORMOUS game. It's several gigabytes on my harddrive. Not only does it take a ton of memory, it also takes a ton of work to develop, so one would expect that the artists would make as many uses from a single skeleton as they can. It's less work for them (time is money friend!) and more space for us.

    Sure, they could over do it, but I really don't think that they do. Especially when this game has soooo many models. If you're designing different birds that are roughly the same, why spend hours rigging/animating new bones when you can just import the same skeleton?

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

Not everyone feels the need to use precise technical language to delineate between things that only really matter to the people who work in the field, because it's really not necessary -- in this case, it looking different on the outside while having the same skeleton is the pertinent information to your average layperson, and this is conveyed fully by "re-skin".

    lol sorry guys wrong video, but yeah it's a remodel of the raven lord but it also looks like it will be just a mob (but in the end we all know it will end as a mount)

    For some reason, people get all pissy when they hear "reskin," more so than when they understand that something is a "remodel" and not just a reskin. It's not even something they look into, they just hear "reskin" and then get angry at blizzard because why not.

    So it stands that these people should be corrected as often as possible.

    For example, when I say "the raven lord was just a remodeled raptor" people don't care. But when someone says "OMG A NEW RESKINNED RAVENLORD!" people flip out about it.

    Yeah, same model but it's kinda crappy tbh. I don't mind much of it but my god, that tail is just hideous.

    I don't mind it being remodeled but it's not my type of mount.

    no that would be the definition of remodel. a reskin would be the exact same model only with a different skin on it.

    saurok is a remodel of a worgen. if saurok were reskins they would just be worgen with a scale pattern for skin

    Actually, no. The skin is the texture. Adding a new beak and wings means adding new polygons to the mesh. That's a remodel.

    Ravenlord with new colors = reskin
    Ravenlord with new shape = remodel

    ...you had to ask the question! >_<

    Animation Model = animation skeleton (unseen)

    Model = the shape of the polygons placed on top/tied to the joints of an animation skeleton. (...now I have to change my above post, upon thinking about that! :P)

    Texture map = the "skin" or texture that overlaps the polygons that give it definition.

    So, knowing that...

    Re-skin = changing the texture on top of the polygon

    re-model = changing/rearranging the polygons mapped on top of the animation skeleton.






    So, to that end, the Alrazor mount is "on fire" - comparing the two... it's pretty clear the polygons are exactly the same, right down to the beak- and all that was added were flame animations to the previous texture maps and severe recoloring. So, you are correct - Alrayzor's a re-skin, not a re-model.

    Thanks - but I actually already came to that conclusion while I was writing my response to the chap above (even pointed out my error while writing it! >_<)

    My bad! Thanks though! >_<
