[W.I.P] Common SD Pack
« on: July 09, 2012, 11:14:39 PM »
Ok so everyone (4 people) agreed on this we need a common SD Pack
Nothing fancy of course AI's Barney, sci, Romka's SD hgrunt, fassn etc.
Regarding the weapons regular HD weapons on AI's arm, except maybe the 9mmAR that will use Romka's M16
Sooo who can help ?

Todo List :
  • Aliens : Besli
  • Black Mesa Npc : LeonelC apparently =P
  • Weapons : Robbe from what I understand, dunno was drunk at the time

Since now, I started to release individual models, editing them according to HL's original concept, but at the same time, keeping a "new" look to them.

Yesterday I released the barney model, nothing much to say, it's just an edited version of liquidator & werewolf's barney.

You can spot some errors, to be honest, it was a 30-min hackjob.

If you want I can join in, but i'm in the last year of high school, so I'll have some bussy days :P

I would sure love having you to work on that
But I would prefer a more classic look and feel, but it would be a shame to not use nice new face models/textures for pretty much anything
Maybe we can make two packs then ? A simple one with regular SD models and a more complex one with a custom dll that allow more variety to the NPCs, won't that be a problem with VAC servers through ?

Great :D

Yeah, I want to make them more classic, but as I said before, my releases (well now it's just one ._.) are just for keep updated my facebook page.

Well, I like more the complex one, so we are killing two birds with one rock :v , I love the idea of making a custom .dll that randomizes the npc models, sounds fresh :D. (Tbh I don't know NOTHING about c++ or editing Half Life's Code)

I really don't know what causes being banned in a VAC server, I think it's cause of an external hack, like that

Honestly more randomization on the NPCs is a ten minutes jobs, check out the mercs and sci in the EoD thread they have a bit of random to them
But I really have to double check that stuff with VAC, it's a change in the hl.dll (server side) it wound't make any sense to hack it for cheating since the rendering (most common cheat from what I understand) is done client side

Okay, and what is the goal of this thread?
We all know where we can get the old A.I and Romka models didn't we?
And what are the limits? Polycount, Pixels,...
Chrome overlays? Yes, or not? (I'm not a very big Fan of it.)
There are so many questions, so we better should put up a FAQ first, I think. :)

Ah yes, the whole point is to bring everything all together into one big pack
Mostly models and sounds, except if you all want to go for textures too
No real limit or anything, but classic really the idea is to offer a SD pack for people who don't uses one, ence avoiding every mod leader to repack common models, like the vortigaunt

I can post different versions, of skins. There are alot of versions around.
I only post the skins, to save space. The textures/skins can be changed by using Jed's HLMV!

Well, I'll start first with the scientist, we are facing valve's style? I mean, pale scientists with white labcoats and trousers. Or the gearbox one? Normal skin tone with light-brown trousers? And the same question goes to the weaponry :P

Btw I saw in the mod "Zombie Edition" that the heads of the scientist.mdl are kinda based on the classic one.

I think it would be good to make both!
One classic (LD) style and one gearbox (HD/PS2/DC) style. :)

I just made out the Islave.

AI's Islave with some body texture found in Gamebanana, also I hacked on, an additive layer for the eye (I think it's just unnecesary)

I'll try also the headcrab and the zombie.

Btw did someone saw this? http://gamebanana.com/hl/skins/29335

Yeah, but my HD Pack has a much better consistency!

I really liked this vortigaunt texture (just needs to have the regular eyes!)

I never said that the pack I linked here it's better than Besli's Pack :sigh:

@Besli, can you give me a .ZIP with that Islave texture? I can use the eye from the vortigaunt pic I uploaded here. :D

Did I won the 3rd Place? :joebiden:

I was just clarifying my intentions when I posted that link up.

And yeah, but I need some guides (I mean, how do you guys want the models to be)

Misunderstanding on my part; didn't mean to start a competition.

No problem, pal. We are humans, we make mistakes ;D

EDIT:

I made out the scientists.

A.I's Scientists with some enhanced textures, I made the textures to make them look like Gearbox's Scientist (but if you guys want I can switch back to A.I's colours)

I used Photo Zoom Pro to enhance all the .bmps (Pretty cool tool if you want to improve those 256x256 textures) The only thing that I don't like are how the face textures are grainy, but god, you have to check out how those eyes look now :O

Well Sven Coop anims for the hgrunt for a start, they aren't "classic" but somehow they look better Romka's, you have made a lot of SD hack with newer bodies, if they aren't from MW2 or something like that I would love to have a look at them. Same thing for Barney and the sci if you have something new to show, I would like to take a look at them (post the models of course)

Check out my previous post, I uploaded the scis.

Tomorrow I'll upload the barney and the hgrunts. :D

Btw, those hgrunts are made by r1chard (I was the first saying NO when he started doing those ported hacks)

Maybe using WP's texture for the body would give some nice result ?
