If anything, it sounds like he will be escorting YOU (the player).

Well, the main characters besides the player are only really a means of driving the story forward. Most of the time they will be just out of reach, guiding the player through various situations.

I hate those invincible teammates. I mean, your dead in two shots they can take a thousand. They get blown to fragments but still their unharmed. Just alittle "hurt" animation making them useless.

Smoothing looks a bit lol, and the face texture could use some more work TBH (painted / AO shadows, fix up those scratches).

Not a bad hack though

I think you should hack the labcoat back on, it would look great!

Andy Morris in the digital flesh...or, rather, in the digital security vest. Oh, and Joe's right. Labcoat should go back on, he looks a bit too much like a security guard. Great job, anyways.

Ya, maybe instead of the security guard clothes, make it so he is wearing his scientist uniform, maybe without the labcoat. Then make so he is only wearing the holster and the vest, add some blood and bingo you have a even more kick *** scientist. Model looks pretty good.

Uhm, he IS wearing the science team uniform without the labcoat. Bear in mind that the scientists in The Core wear a different uniform. :P

Well the lab coat would just get in the way so it makes sense to not have one or that he discarded it after he got the vest. I would make the shirt texture white or light blue on the other hand with light brown pants to better distinguish him from regular BM security tho. A different color tie would also help. Perhaps some glasses would also help.

I do love the current amount of detail tho its superb. The face is brilliant as are the little details like the scars.

This is the 3rd and hopefully final version of the urby model. There will however be a scientist version for earlier sections of the mod. I didn't want Urby to appear as one of the regular, cowardly scientists. So here he is, ready for action. :)

Original Model: Ambient.Impact
Model Hack and Reskin: Urbanebula
Face Reference: Urbanebula ^_^
