[tab]Description:[/tab]Well this is an hev suit like model for vortigaunt.[/release]
Hello, being long time I didn’t post anything there.

To remove the helmet from prop armor, npc or ragdoll:

  1. put your cursor on the model
  2. open up the console
  3. type in: ent_fire !picker setbodygroup 1

To add it:

  1. put your cursor on the model
  2. open up the console
  3. type in: ent_fire !picker setbodygroup 0

or use the bodygroup switcher.

The model:

Version 2.0:

Version 3.0:

Changelog 3.0:
-Added vortigaunt player model
-Added helmet bodygroup on ragdoll, prop and npc
-Added prop helmet
-Added 2 player model version, 1 with helmet and 1 without
-Fixed some rigging problem on player model
-Fixed neck phymodel on ragdoll version

Changelog 2.0:
-Fixed smoothing-group on the prop model of the suit
-Added a player model version!
-Added finger posable ragdoll!
-Added spawnlist for the prop and the ragdoll

To make it works as a player model I’d to rework on nearly all the model because vortigaunt do not have the same shape as humans, I prefered to sacrifice textures (will look a bit weird sometimes) than having a player model with shitty animation.

Valve - the original model and animation
Me - the full hev suit model, textures, player model and some more xD
Silver Spirit - helped me with fixing the eye problem(thanx you a lot :))

Have fun with it!

ps: before installing remove any old version!!!

What the fuck man!!?

Nevertheless, this is one of a very few models around here somebody put some real effort into.

Good job thar! Artistic’d

That actually looks pretty good. Downloading.

Cool, looks great to me, nice work!

Thanx you!

yeah I even drew it before modeling and all. I was really exited about seeing it on a vortigaunt in game^^.

ps: here is my drawing(sorry for the huge size :!)

fingerposable by any chance?

No not for now, maybe in a version 2 who know ^^

That’s already somewhat professional. Way better than just starting off from scratch without any concept.

Man, this looks legendary.

Seriously, it looks like it’d fit well with some future Vort, wearing the suit as if he were the “reincarnation” of Gordon Freeman, like he were some kinda Freemanine (props if you get it).

That’s actually really cool, although the textures on the HEV Suit could be improved a bit.

Awesome model with nice texture.
Good work !

Wow, that’s actually really cool and really well done. Downloaded. Props to you OP

thanx all.

I noticed that the prop had lost his smoothing groups, can you comfirm it plz?

I’ll post a fixe as soon as possible if it’s the case

That’s very impressive work. Good job.

Wow this is really good.Well done sir.

this is great

it’s exactly the sort of awesome things people used to create for half-life 1

wish there were more of these instead of those generic-world-war-game-characters

This is awesome

Wow, this looks great!
It reminds me of the Mark IV HEV.

What has science done!

I did try to make it fingerposable when I was fixing it, but for some reason it wouldn’t work want me to try again?

Also incase you want to do it heres what you need to rename the bones:

	Valve Biped	    =	Vortigaunt

	Right Hand

ValveBiped.Bip01_R_Hand     = ValveBiped.hand1_R  
ValveBiped.Bip01_R_Finger1  = ValveBiped.index1_R 
ValveBiped.Bip01_R_Finger11 = ValveBiped.index2_R 
ValveBiped.Bip01_R_Finger2  = ValveBiped.pinky1_R 
ValveBiped.Bip01_R_Finger21 = ValveBiped.pinky2_R 

	Left Hand

ValveBiped.Bip01_L_Hand     = ValveBiped.hand1_L
ValveBiped.Bip01_L_Finger1  = ValveBiped.index1_L 
ValveBiped.Bip01_L_Finger11 = ValveBiped.index2_L 
ValveBiped.Bip01_L_Finger2  = ValveBiped.pinky1_L 
ValveBiped.Bip01_L_Finger21 = ValveBiped.pinky2_L 

Personally i think the texture looks pretty good in the pic there, will have to take a closer look ^^
