Help with modeling


I tried looking for some help but was unable to find any specif to my question. I want to edit a Half Life 2 Model and add more “parts” to it. I have 3ds Max and Milkshape, and im unsure exactly how i import a Hl2 Citizen Player Model into the program. I tired going through Import and it just comes back with “invalid import module”.

Hopefully i didn’t sound too retarded and someone can help me.


Existing models must be decompiled before they can be modified. You can download the MDLdecompiler from here.

To import the SMDs from the decompiled model into 3Dsmax you will need an appropriate import plugin. You can find a popular one here.
