In a world where HD and UHD packs for a 1998 game no longer make the cut, sprouts a small seed of hope. Half-Life: R will replace all viewmodels with updated versions, based (conceptually) on the default SD- and HD-content, including sounds and animations on a new arm rig. Because I can. It'll be hella rad.

Minor update

News 11 comments

Which is kind of a big deal, since I'm a nazi when it comes to quality control. The Glock (9mmhandgun) model is fully completed. The model is how I want it to be, the textures are edited, sounds are matched, and the compile is fully finished. Biggest differences are the addition of a threaded barrel (well, the cap at least), a new rear sight, and edited/mixed and matched textures. Lastly, I edited the model to play nice with Half-Life's rather extreme FOV.

Another pic before the FOV fix can be found here: Moddb.com

After updating the Glock I went over the Colt Python. The original texture was a single 1024x1024 diffuse sheet, simply scaled down to a 512x512 one. It looks fine in-game, but I've decided to split the textures into 2x512 textures anyway, pretty much doubling the resolution.

The one in the bottom is the older version, note the grip, text and logo engraving. The chrome effect stood out to me when playing Half-Life pretty much when it first came out, and I wanted to add a similar effect to the replacement I'm working on. Unfortunately, the way HLMV renders chrome isn't the exact same way Goldsrc does it, so the time I spent tweaking the chrome texture was pretty much for nothing, and restarting the entire game every time I want to try a chrome texture is too much of a pain in the ass. Luckily I somehow got something decent looking by using an edited version of the default chrome texture.

Chrome thing More chrome stuff


It will still need some editing, but it's a decent start. The effect bumps up the triangle count by quite a bit, but then again it's 2015.

To close it all off, also did some work on a new crossbow model. The default one is meh, the BMS one is pretty terrible (at least for Goldsrc), so decided to hack together my own version. It started out as the compound crossbow from Killing Floor (Tripwire Interactive is cool with content porting), but at this point only the flexing blades and wires are what's left of it.

The stock and grip have been replaced with Twinke/Thanez's WA2000 furniture, along with quite a few other edits. The red dot in the pic has since been replaced with an ACOG. It is (pretty much) ready to be animated. The textures still need work.

Laters.

im liking the quality of the models here but why god is it literally always JUST the weapon models, maybe sometimes HUD elements but nothing else
theres so many mods that did this before and all of them do nothing to make the rest of the game look accordingly good
it doesnt fit at all
