    Well the warrior bug doesn't fly and the antlion dies way to easy. In the movie it took like 5 people to take down one warrior bug when they first landed on Klendathu.
    And somehow near the end of the movie, using the same weapons it took about 3 shots to kill one.

    No replacement, it will be best as a seperate NPC. The warrior would not match the antlions or antliongaurd in any way.

    A better replacement would be the antlion guard.

    Well an SNPC then.

    Also, the bugs seemed to be easier to kill later on.

    Besides, the antlion guard's health is way too high.

    Good point but still, an antlion guard WAY too hard to kill.
    Okay lets stop this problem, and just go with a custom NPC guys? yeah? :lol:

    I don't like the textures but at least we have a good model here.

    Does it have animations or anything?

    In the beginning of the movie their attack technique was fairly underdeveloped and I want to yell at them, but later on they get slightly more professional.

    It's not that the bugs were easier to kill, it's that they were able to capture live bugs to research and they found that targeting specific areas on the bug would kill it quicker than just spraying it with enough bullets till it fell apart.

    The first movie was good, but then the ones after that sucked ass. Alot of the characters in that movie were fucking idiots like the repoter who got cut apart while he was right next to the Archanid.

    Hehe, would make for an interesting snpc if it's done right. Just make sure those animations are up to snuff.

    Oh, and something as big as that, please do what you can to make sure the npc knows to plant it's feet on the actual brush ground. The antlions and Antlion guards got away with the whole "feet floating in the air when on uneven ground" thing because they're not nearly as big. But something as large as this and with only four big old legs needs to have the human/strider treatment so it's legs ajust to be planted on different height ground. Prevent the uncanny valley from rearing it's ugly head, you know.

    You can release the ragdoll. I don't really like the skin so hopefully I will be seeing a re-skin sometime soon.

    Then when everything is done, make a SNPC or something.

    Your animations look pretty, keep it up, really. Do you think you can find out how they made the antlion-guard and strider legs stay on the ground?

    Edit:

    also, the strider can make ragdolls get stuck to its legs.
    =D
