Yeah, but it looked terrible. Plus, I lost all my models. After my laptop freaked out a few months ago.

No, I made it like that because I thought it'd look better.

Thanks! Do you have any ideas, though? One I just thought up of is webbing between the toes (like the skin in between the fingers), and bringing the joining area back a bit. What do you think?

Also, what should I do for the eyes? I can't think of anything.

You could rely on the given textures you know.

Eyes should be allot and tiny..I was thinking the same thing for the toes too..But maybe the eyes could also start glowing when the houndeye charges..

Yeah, I thought that a while ago, too (about the eyes charging, before you said so), and I also think it should have an effect like the vortigaunt's beam attack, with beams all over.

I know a half-life 1 server where you could play as all the aliens..When you played as the houndeye it had a powerfull beam charge that took about 200 dmg..Maybe you can make such a charge beam that takes out 30 or 40 damage..

These guys have broken into my mind - I was gonna do the same thing. Well, either way, I'd have more aliens, and a different gameplay, as well as better effects, probably. And no, that powerful attack sounds weird. I mean, the houndeye would DEFINITELY be a ambush class, in which you need more players, but are a lot more powerful together. You, usually, couldn't kill anyone alone, unless you are a very skilled player.

I definitely will. I've decided on that months ago, but forgot to say. It won't be on ALL maps, but quite a few. I'll figure out ways to make them equal to humans.

i have a few ideas of how some powers and skill-traits could work for houndeyes to make them equal to humans (including cooperational teamplay) if i know something, its that not matter how good a dessing its, not all the world will like it, but if its liked by the 95% of people, its a ceratinly sucess!

wont be on all maps? you mean single? but for multiplayer? there could be human vs alien. It would be perfect! this would be better than c.s!

It won't be on the main singleplayer campaign at all, but mappers can make a singleplayer map where the player plays as an alien. In multiplayer, most of the maps would probably have it, because not all maps take place in the Half-Life universe. Some might be terrorist versus counter terrorist maps. Some might be World War II.

Very nice progress, Im also thinking about the eye(s) and I dont know what is better ... though I would like to have only 1 big eye, You should probably question the rest of your mod watchers.

Well, thanks, but nobody's giving me a proper answer. So I'll just wait for an answer for two days, and, meanwhile, work on coding.

*opinion: a way of making a eye would be making it look like a insectoid one, but the panels of the composed eye could be a bit un-uniformationed, and then making like a membrane of transparent liquid recovering the panels! that would be really interesting to see

@Smasher: Well, the vorts will use that. I was just wondering whether the eyes would be seperate enough to have some "skin" in between the eyes. In a day and a half, I'll just make it one big eye, as the majority of people (just avenger so far!) have voted.

@Lusicore: That's actually be pretty funny.

Will work on the bullsquid tell then.

Description

Well, guys, I'm inching further. I only have to finish up the eyes before continuing on to the rigging and texturing. I already finished most of the effects.
