Post news RSS Update 13-The phoenix! new enemy !

Hey everyone, this is a kongah update this time, and boy is it a great one!

Posted by on

Based off the pestis bird( pestis=plauge) we have this cool guy that is ready to torch anything! By the look of him, you can see the resemblance in this picture:


To the phoenix himself (click view full size image):


If any of you doesn't know what a phoenix is, it is a fire bird. All credit to kongah on this one :D. Hope you get better soon!

Note: Yes, we used some of the looks of the SCRAPPED hl2 beta model.

I think you should do something with the hood thats covering the lower part of his face, it looks too cylindrical compared to the picture. Thats just my thought, still looks nice though.

I was looking forward to in that game. Well hell, at least someone's got the good sense to put this character in a game.

Looks cool but the body looks like a cut enemy from half life 2 ( Cremator)

But it is taken from HL2, and he's taking full credit for it.
"Modeled/Textured by Kongah"

He didn't even make the texture himself, it's taken from halflife 2 and the bits of unwanted stuff is edited out, so it could be used for this model, it's quite obvious, I doubt how much of it he has modeled himself too, but it does look like it has been remodeled. However I find it wrong to take full credit for it. And I'm not going to discuss this with you any further as I have made my point. Thank you.

Looks excellent, but the first thing I thought of when seeing it was the cremator from HL2.
There isn't anything wrong with borrowing the looks from the cremator, it's nice to see the style be used in a game.
Perhaps recolour the coat to brown so it is different to the cremator in colour.

Wow, HL2 might have had a good enemy in it? That's a bit of a shock, though valve did cut the Hydra too and that was one of the primary enemies I was looking forward to in that game. Well hell, at least someone's got the good sense to put this character in a game.

1800 tris, is the the PSP game ?

If so, I'd highly suggest getting rid of stuff like fingers and other unseen detail.

Listen, how it the same flamethrower thing as a cremator? the cremator gun has acid, this is a flamethrower and it looks completely differnt.There are some similarities, but this looks kick ***! I am using the quake engine to the very limits, and if hl2 was gunna use it, they should have used it 5 years ago! So who really cares ...
