Mass Effect 3 - Alliance soldier pack

**Mass Effect 3 - Alliance Soldiers
**
Since the Earth DLC got released i decided to try making some soldiers similar to the ones in the cinematic trailer using Kaidan’s armor for the males, and the N7 Engineer from multiplayer for the females, then i added some bodygroups for fun and HL2 citizen heads to make some generic soldiers. The skins for the troopers are Kaidan’s armor for the default soldier, James Vega’s armor for the ‘Cavalry’ skin (it has a horse on the shoulderpad so i dunno what else to call it :v: ), and the N7 Engineer texture from the Earth DLC for the N7 Engineer version, colored black for the sake of genericness. The alliance marine i just added because nobody else had done it and it’s an awesome model.

CONTENTS:


**This pack contains:**
3 types of Alliance trooper - each with HL2 male and female heads, and all with skins and bodygroups which i'll go into later
Regular (Grey with white stripes)
N7 Engineer (Grey with N7 logo on chestplate)
Armored Cavalry (Blue with white insignias on shoulderpads)

Alliance Marines - With HL2 Male heads, skins and bodygroups.

A grand total of 72 models with however the fuck many bodygroup and skin combinations

I don’t think i can upload this to Gmod.org because it’s 82 MB and gmod.org hates me with a passion, but if anyone else can do it then please do, just be sure to link the thread and give credit where credit’s due.

If anything is horribly broken with anything, just post about it and sit tight because it’s 6:30am and i’m probably going to bed soon. I’ll fix it tomorrow.

Looks good to me

Excellent work! :smiley:

good job yo

HELL YES
ive been waiting for this!

thank you <3

badass work mang

I thought i packed in all the materials, but i could’ve missed a few things, if you install the Enhanced Citizens pack, that should fix any missing texture problems. The directories are the same for the eyes and facemaps.

And as for any issues with the models in SFM, i made the models primarily for Garry’s mod, if they work in SFM then that’s an awesome bonus, but i didn’t think they’d be used, so i haven’t accounted for any bugs that might be present if the models are used in SFM.

GOD! YES!
Amazing job mate!

This is pretty sweet, thanks for the hard work!

Truly awesome! I was wondering if anyone would ever release something like this

All of the begging; whining; crying… I never expected this.
