    A relative WIP to be honest (still some wonky rigging) on the fingers and such. But it's mostly fine.

    Four default armour color variations
    [list][*]Eclipse[*]bluesuns[*]Fp militia[*]Generic[/list]
    Both males and females
    Body with no heads and a helmet
    8 Asari head skins with faceposing
    2 Batarian head skins with faceposing
    All citizens

    Males also include a helmet bodygroup
    Important!
    You must use enhanced citizens for the male textures otherwise they will not be textured

    Okayt seriously - it's been mirroring for hours now
    http://filesmelt.com/dl/Mercs.zip

    EDIT
    Another mirror
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6252145/me%2...rcs%2Bface.zip


    Credits
    Bioware of course
    Haxxer for the Militia reskin, testing and some of the asari recolours
    FLoatertwo for the generic reskin

    Fixed DL






    Themanest for one of the poses


    Also sorry the one unrelated picture. I mistook it for another one and now can't get rid of it :~

    Looks awesome! Would you mind posting an alternate download link, though? GMod.org is giving me the "file is being mirrored" message.

    Got my download! I was waiting for some one to do this.

    Edited:

    Also I am getting the file is being mirrored message. I guess I will wait a bit.

    Grumbles - well I can put up a mirror for a while. Though will probably put it down after a while, since I'm really not sure how dropbox deals with multiple downloads.

    I just noticed I managed to frack up the folders in the upload a bit. Everything is there, there's just one folder too many.
    Will be updating to fix this in a moment.

    The male legs are acting weird. (Looks like a poly or something is stuck on the right leg)

    Yeah it has the fixed files as well.
    To be honest it wasn't really broken. There was just an extra folder inside the addon one and an empty info.txt

    Good work on these, but they've got a few things that could be improved upon. Take, for example, that green skin. It's an effect layer used my ME2 to render the metallic colors I think, but it's definitely not a skin.

    They are fun to pose with though, and you put a good bit of effort into this, so just polish it up and you'll have a good release.

    Thanks. And yeah, I know about the one skin on the females. I sort of hoped to find diffuse for the mask and had the mask set up in the QC's as a skin option. After I didn't really find it, I included it with the females as an uh "clown" camo option.


    awesome job!

    planning on doing any other ME ports?
    With time I guess. I want to fix the issues on this guys first (the heads without bodies seem to float in the air for instance)
    Try to port the RS6v2 specops and then probably yes.

    Wanted to port Aria for some time now.

    Yeah, but the males have a slightly different spine4 upwars position. Had to break it and move it to fit the heads.

    I also noticed how the collision model of the heads/helmets included in on the ground while the apperence presented by the model is still 6ft off the ground.

    The gmod download is still mirroring, and for me the filesmelt download doesn't work either.

    I click on the merc.zip and it just opens another identical window.

    Grabs OP

    Important!
    You must use enhanced citizens for the male textures otherwise they will not be textured
    http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=948727

    And yeah I noticed the bug with the floating heads. I plan to fix it. Same goes with fingers.

    Damn, I was hoping to not have to deal with the enhanced peeps.
    Oh well.
    Thanks though.
    Looking forward to the fix with the fingers n' the heads.
    Another curious question though:
    Would you be able to get permission to include the files necessary to have the missing textures fixed?
    Or has the original owner already said no?
    D:
    Either way, Imma get the enhanced peeps so it should be good, I'm just wondering.

    I got a permission to use them, but didn't want to include the skin files. It would make the whole zip relatively giant. Keeping two relatively normally sized downloads seems like a better choice.
