Great work!
Description
I was designing a soho street scene for a music video when i realised that some chinatown style street lighting was needed. I was surprised to see that no one had yet submitted a model to turbo squid, so i thought i'd fill the void with the model i came up with. I got some nice animation effects from MAX SCRIPT by setting the pivot above and outside the model and letting it swing about in the wind. I have tried to keep the map files small, but the wires texture is fairly large due to the organic nature of the wires they just didn't seem to work as a tiled texture and started breaking up and aliasing into pixels at lower res.

If high detail work is required then maybe this isn't the model for you.

The pivot is placed outside and above the object to easily provide a good 'swinging in the wind' animation if need be.

The light cone does not render correctly in mental ray, as can be seen in the promotional image 'cl_promo04.jpg', so if you are using this renderer please use the cone-less version of the chinese lantern.

Incidentally this model is my first to be shared and was completed on chinese new year. I would appreciate any feedback good or bad on how to improve the usability of my next model package.

Thanks

Happy New Year!
