Hey everyone, Im going to dip my feet into this challenge... Anyway here goes....

The Concept:
A Supercharged electrical defense tower. Also known as the TESLA Tower. With the ability to strike any opponents with a beam of super charged electricity.

References:
Red Alert (EA Game), Defense Grid, The Death Ray (similar style)

I know your referencing that video game, so my point may be irrelevant in that context, but just so you know the Tesla Tower was not a weapon, and was never intended as such. It was merely for the broadcast of wireless electrical current. The Death Ray was a different device all together, a bulb.

Very true indeed, I'm just playing around with the fiction, the pictures of the electrical transferring towers was just to give me direction as to how the deadly Tesla tower would appear.

Basically I'm riding on the idea that the transferring of electrical charge was changed and configured in such a way that it was used to strike at other objects, ie people/tanks so as for military means. As it is shown in Red Alert.

Hey everyone, Here is the work I've done at the moment, no texture but the Tesla Tower and it's silo have been built. I hope I can finish this :hmm:

Here is the idea:
Russian Scientist have stolen Tesla's secret unheard of plans and built their own tower in the remote parts of Siberia. Keeping it underground they have prevented the USA of finding out of this deadly device.

The short animation will begin with a radar screen picking up a moving tank over the landscape, we then see these massive silo doors opening and the Tesla tower emerges, the small towers charge up the big tower. We slowly see the tank coming closer and then the massive Tesla the builds up current in middle and shoots out a massive burst of electrical current across the landscape and blows up the tank. This is all going to occur in the late afternoon.

The Tower in the open.

The silo with the doors closed, there will be the Russian symbol on the doors.

Hey everyone...
I Haven't really been updating much, work load is quite intense at the moment so every minute on the side I try do some Tesla.

Anyway, Ive finished texturing the models, I found a nice tank from http://gunpoint-3d.com/ and I'm working on the landscape and atmosphere. Lightning I have done some tests but nothing to show yet.

Thanks Gotmilk..... I will try my best!
