    Nice thread Haxxer

    An update on the mercs and some extras.
    Right now I'm sort of working on fixing up the mercs, fixing some of the random faceposing and adding a few extra skins here and there.

    As an extra been working with floater two on porting the Partisan armour. (seen on wasea, and present in me1 with various different skins) Plus he's working on a reskin of the partisan to go along with the new Asari spectre - they're not the same armours, but close enough.

    This skin and head is pretty temporary to be honest.

    Huh? All you'd need for the drinking glasses is a normal map and the refract shader.

    Ah, yes, the "Biotic God"! An "immortal" Volus, who sniff the "Red sand". We have dismissed that claim.

    It'd just be faceposing, pretty much. Having them as flexes would be pretty sweet.

    Just...Refract. I dunno if there's a more updated shader that Valve implemented. I think I remember them talking about one in the Episode 1 commentary, but I dunno what it's called.

    Wow. These models are truly epic. I wish I had found this thread before I made my (mostly) Mass Effect based music video (click the little YouTube icon under my name if you're interested)... I coulda used a lot of these. Heh.

    I'm curious, is there a way to get your personal Shepard?
