    I've pretty much decided to continue this project after a hold of 1 year or so. Right now all of the reskins make use of phong shading.
    The camouflage patterns are custom made, mainly to try and let it blend into the HL2 environment.
    Now for the render screenshots, please keep in mind that this was rendered with the material settings on low because somehow my model viewer won't render the materials on high.







    Download it all over HERE!

    For those who want the camouflage patterns, here they are.

    Pattern 1
    Pattern 2
    Pattern 3
    Pattern 4
    Pattern 5
    Pattern 6

    The phong on the cloth is really weird looking, but luckily it can be easily removed. Everything else is sex as always Zeem.

    You've obviously never seen a real sharpened texture then.

    As stated before, Zeem is the motherfucking king of Combine.

    Custom made out of a picture of camouflage. If you want to have the .psd then just ask.

    I'm pretty sure you didn't make The 4th Combine in the screenshot. It looks way to similar to Marcius' Combine Skull Breaker, or Romka's remake of the Skull Breaker. Minus some crappy sharpening filters...

    You should bet your ass he did. There's only so much you can do with those color schemes, so of course it'll look similar.

    I've made all of them myself, I don't steal from other people.

    Stop using the name Skullbreaker, it makes no sense, Romka made it up.

    Who are you to be telling us what to do? And methinks you should leave this thread considering you apparently dislike these skins.

    He did not, it's an actual VALVe name for the soldier, which actually is now seen as "the shotgun soldier" in ep2.
    But, nice skins nevertheless.

    I've encountered problems with the Elite's fingerposing in GMod 10:



    Only the top-half of the larger part of the webbed hands clench. The index finger is alright, and so are the hands on all the other ragdolls.

    This is due to the rigging done on the Elite's hands. It might have been intentional by Valve, but I'm not sure.

    FadeAway, I really don't see what that has to do with this topic...these are reskins, not remodels.

    On topic, Zeem, these are quite plainly bad-ass. Though I typically find digital camo to typically look like total crap, you managed to have it look damn good, if your HLMV renders are any judgement!

    They're hexed reskins, technically making them separate models from the defaults.

    They're still the same model as you well know. He obviously hasn't rerigged them.

    All good apart from that purple one and that money one. Make the money actually blend and have shadows and texture and it's all good.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean he changed any of the model's aspects. The problem you have is with the base model, which he didn't change at all.

    Right now I'm working on a complete update, mostly improvement on the phong shading and an easier way of downloading, instead of downloading a whole pack I'll upload base files and then you can easily download the reskins you want, of course I'll keep on updating a complete pack that includes all.

    Download is in the first post.

    There's no need for that when you can duplicate the .vmt files and rename them to the originals.

    There seems to be a problem with the elite's model it's self, I can't fix that.
