View Full Version : 8 video game characters
April 2nd, 2003, 05:01 PM
Here are eight models I did over the last year and half or so - all are 1200-1400 polys, designed for use in HL. Design constraints included individualizing each character, and also making sure that the two teams of characters maintained team design sensibilities...you know, they all sort of match :)
HL Player Models (http://www.ghostopsmod.com/version2/players.html)
The models were all done v-by-v in Milkshape3D, which I have become utterly sick of at this point :P Character descriptions by me as well, for what it's worth...

Hey, they look about right and cool -- i've not go much experience with low-poly and to me the low-poly untextured ones always look blocky but i know the low-poly stuff is really hard to do... Maybe post one with texture or some concept art so we can check that out too? Or a wireframe?

they seem really high poly for half life, and maybe some polies have to be turned, if you get what i mean (i dont really know how milkshape works but thats what its called in 3dsmax)
theyre pretty sweet. maybe they could be smoother especially the knees on the Infantry Operative, Division 13 guy. pretty impresive for vertex by vertex in milkshape i tried for a while but got way too frustrated with it

hey guys, thanks - all the "ghost ops" (as opposed to the "private sector") team models were done first, and the "recon op" was actually the first player model I had ever made, so they have some edges that still need turning (among other glaring errors!)...also, areas like the knees smooth out in the animations, they look awkward in these poses...but you're right, i think they could use a little work. Yeah, v-by-v is definitely frustrating :) so much so that I'm coding a new 3d modeling program just so i don't have to mess with it anymore....yuckers. By original HL standards, the models are definitely high-poly, but I figure I've got Moore's law on my side ;) if people's graphic cards have been doubling in speed for the last 5 years, then these guys are safe by an order of magnitude ;) Thanks again for the feedback!
