Hy there guys !

Ohh yesss.
We finally did it!

As you see we finally made our first NPC model, a Central Union soldier into the game !

More important: The model is half-done, its fully use the basic Valve's skeleton, so the model can use every animation from the Source game's (HL2). We also try to make a custom class for it, in the code for the future.

I'm very glad to we half-made it!

But that's not all. I upload some pictures about the residental discrict of Old Home's city. I tried to make it a believable "underground city" look. Futher more, i finally used a little trick for make this cave more-more nice looking.

I hope, you guys like it as much as i like it ! :P

and don't forget, Tracking is always good for your healt! ;D

(video will coming soon)

Looks great still I see it more like a reskin like all those other original combine models. A new camouflage a new helmet nothing more.

New npc means for me new unique written A.I code and completely different model + different sounds.

How ever like I said it still looks great and the maps in the background are ultra hot. Fantastic work after all. :) Keep it going.

Well it wasn't just a reskin of a Combine model. My friend Szilaj made a totally new custom sodier base modell, and I make a skin for it.
It uses only the skeleton from the original Combine soldier.
Anyway i fixed the headline message for misunderstanding.

But it's a completely different model if I'm correct. I think that it's just the skeleton. It makes him seem to stand just like a combine.

EDIT: I guess I'm late. ^

I really dig the style of the level but maybe it could use a small variety of different colored lights to break it up a little bit

These screens are just fantastic ! This NPC model looks great. Terrific job on it all around ( and of course we see some Combine stature in it, it's not ground up coded-so what ? ). I'm all about custom content and coding in a custom class would be a welcomed sight.

Go ahead and take some pride in the work on the residential district area your showing off here. It completely looks the part of the environment as it would have to be underground. The base color scheme is rich and earthy, making the contrasting colors appear all the more vibrant. The mapping is also absolutely wonderful. Nice job softening the whole look up with the lighting as well. Keep it up guys !
