Modelling an interior for this just so we can have slightly transparent glass would be a huge waste of time and resources, not to mention inefficient ingame, since it's a map prop.

That's why cars in most FPS games don't have transparent windows.

Yeah, that's just the HL2 with a dumb space font. A new HUD is on the to-do list.

I'm the guy who pushed for ironsights, and for two reasons:

1. The vast majority of ironsights have been in real-life military shooters. I thought the juxtaposition of ironsighted aiming with goofy sci-fi weaponry and characters would be unusual and memorable.

2. The hero, John Solomon, isn't supposed to be an unstoppable superhuman killing machine, like Gordon Freeman or Commander Shepard or whatever shooter hero you want to name. He doesn't fire from the hip. He doesn't wear a robosuit or have a personal shield. His firefights are short, small-scale, and brutal, not prolonged Quake matches. Ironsights are just in his character.

Actually present-day taxis tend to use the same model as police cruisers (Crown Vic) so it's not entirely lazy. They did it in GTA too.

You're not the first person to say that. I've never actually played Syndicate Wars, if anything it was inspired by the cop cars from FutureCop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xPOZ2F8b2I) but they're a lot blockier.

The main character was always an alien. Right now we're modding the EP2 engine, although if it's possible to do with minimal hassle we'd like to switch up to the version in Portal 2.

I don't know if you've encountered it but there's a fair few who take issue with the hamfisted gender roles (among other things) in videogames. For example: M.wired.com

Since we're doing a mod, and not beholden to sales figures or publishers, we have the opportunity to subvert peoples expectations. And it's more important that this character immediately register as a bamf than as female anyway.

The mafia characters wear turtlenecks instead of ties to differentiate them from a group of corporate suits the player meets later.

I'm sure it's possible, but it would be a lot of work for a relatively minor payoff. If we get bogged down adding a bunch of minor features just because they seem cool, we'll never be able to get this mod out the door.

Also, John Solomon doesn't know how to hack.

It's hard to tell in the light, but Breen's suit is brown and that one is gray. It also has a pocket hankerchief and white cuffs.

The top thing is a flashlight.

The 2 barrels are there just cause they were in the concept art. But since it's a plasma-based weapon, we can just say it helps distribute the heat for a greater ROF.
