Also this, there are some rare models like Brigadierwolf's weapon replacements, and many player models if someone wants to make them for SC.

I didn't know there were other Hammer clones other than Jackhammer. Great compilation, I'd vote for it to become stickied.

Stickied this; if there is content on these sites we want to be saved it might be in our interests to make copies of it for archival purposes.
