I imagine that's probably down to the sheer volume of lines, trying to assign facial animation to all of them would be a huge task.

Certainly the plan will be to give characters facial animation- but how much of that turns up in game is another question!

Pretty retarded logic tbh. It's easy to run a model through a polygon reduction tool, or to grab the LODs from the original Valve models.

Anyway, the Combine models were low poly to begin with.

I've been there IRL, I'm not sure it's a good place for tank battles though because the river is huge (and I don't recall there being many crossing points).

Whats more it's heavily forested so tanks could hardly maneuver around there. I may be mistaken, but I think someone mentioned the French resistance were heavily active in the area too? Don't quote me on that though.

The buildings you've made look well constructed, I would just worry that the complex geometry will lag like buggery.

Looks too much like paint. There should be more liquid, and it probably should be transparent too?

You better fix up AI navigation (shakes fist)
I can help you with that, there were quite a few tricks I learnt on HOE:NE (even though there were nav bugs there, I was just too lazy to fix them).

The main thing is just to avoid narrow doorways, or at least give the NPCs an alternative route they can take in case they get stuck.
Secondly, use CLIP textures to cover stairways (the importance of this is enourmous!)

I would say the diffuse maps could benefit from some painted shadows (eg wrinkles on clothing, darken areas that are slightly obscured).

TBH it needs some entirely new animations, I see a lot of clipping there. This is partly due to the Valve skeleton which was made for characters with thin shoulders.

The diffuse textures need a lot of work, right now they look really plain. Also the normal maps make the model look really shiny and plastic - please fix those :X

Don't worry Nightvision and flashlights will be included.
Hopefully we can code NPCs to react to flashlights... muhahaha!

It's pretty cool to see these perks implemented, the "legitimate wall hack" in particular made me lol.

The only thing is, most of these perks are seen in COD4/6. IMHO some more original ones should be added to make this more unique ;)

Wait so I should just lie through my teeth and say something like "oh this mod looks great" when it clearly is in need of improvement.

I honestly cannot believe you're saying "nur, this isn't City 17, it's City 14". It's the same damned setting, just with a different name!
The mapping does look really weak: most of the areas look horribly linear, and the visuals are in most cases only "improved" by liberally placing props around. Except that there are plenty of screenshots where props look completely out of place.

As for "petty whining... from someone who could never do that same most likely" uh actually I am a modder myself with a lot of experience. I'm just sick to death of seeing these damned generic City-17 knock off mods where person XYZ fights the combine and loads of zombies.

Yeah the model is realigned by the Source engine, it doesn't need animations for ironsights.

lol "Conspiracy within the Sewer". Not exactly the best title ever :/

But sewers in an FPS game again? Surely there are better surroundings to go for. What you've done looks good but sewers have been done to death in games. Also I don't really fancy going "knee deep amongst the dump" XD

No, we're only really just starting on the zombies. The new zombies will look different to the default HOE ones (which were just reskins of the old HL zombie)

The new zombies will fit in with the general monster look we're developing ;)
