    I have been doing some work lately on various custom models for L4D2 and I've been looking for a few outlets to post them. I don't have gmod personally, but I've asked a few people to help me make sure these models work properly in gmod.

    Anyway, I first posted here, so most of this is a copy-paste, but I've included gmod-friendly versions as well. They require gmount OR one of the handful of L4D1/2 survivor packs available on garrysmod.org.

    I plan on making at least one new custom model for each of the L4D1 and L4D2 survivors and will post them here. Stay tuned...

    Original survivors

    MELEE-FIX PACK


    A simple pack that I'm hoping will be superceded by a future Valve update, this pack adds melee attachments to the L4D1 survivors, a pistol attachment for Zoey, and incap animation for the L4D1 male survivors in solo/offline play.

    DOWNLOAD: (as a pack) l4dmaps.com OR (as separate VPKs) gamebanana.com

    Francis

    Officer

    Relax, he's a cop!

    This features Francis in a deputy uniform, which he may or may not have "borrowed" from someone.

    Louis
    Bill
    Zoey

    [*] Courtesan

    Halloween was always her favorite holiday. My first public model made from scratch, this features Zoey in a "courtesan" costume based on the courtesan multiplayer character from Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Front Side view Back Comparison

    Rochelle

    [*]Mad-Max armor



    Ellis has been known to raid more than just junkyards... Inspired by Mad Max, this model swaps out Ellis' overalls for something a little more...exotic.

    L4D M41911 A1 Pistol
    DOWNLOAD: l4dmaps.com
    (Closer perspective version with original animations): Mediafire



    I'm bad at taking screenshots, but do notice that these are new custom models and not just reskins. They also have working facial animations, tracking eyes, boomer-bile effects, and can properly hold two-handed weapons like fire axes and baseball bats. Except for LODs, I've tried to make sure that these models deliver what you might expect from the original models. (As with Ellis, also notice that I've changed the first-person hands to match the new models.)

    I'll update this thread as I create more! Thanks to MkTbKz and Zoralink for helping me out with the gmod stuff.

    I don't want to sound like an idiot, but I've got ask - are the Gmod versions hexed?


    Plus, I can see some great headhacks with the inmate suit.

    Yes, they are "hexed" properly in that they do not replace the stock L4D2 survivors if you have them.

    Those models are actually related to my other story here. I rigged up some custom models based on characters from the story.

    Edit: And no, I don't plan on releasing those quite yet...

    It's a semi-tedious process, but I had to recreate them. MkTbKz helped me with the stock characters, but for my other models, it's essentially recreating them from scratch.

    The armor looks more like raider armor from Fallout 3.

    Next model I plan to release is Coach, and then the L4D1 survivors. I have to do some experimenting to make sure the addon stuff and model replacement system works properly for the L4D1 survivors in L4D2.

    I don't think I'll be doing anything for L4D1 since Valve is porting the rest of the campaigns over anyway, the addon system is slightly broken in L4D1, and the rigs between the two games are slightly different.

    Yes, it's definitely possible in L4D1, but I think he was saying that it wouldn't be worth the effort to make the models for L4D1. The two games have slightly different rig setups for the skeletons, so he'd have to essentially remake the models twice.

    It is true that there is a big difference

    I've been getting quite a few PMs about the facial flexes and such; I plan on releasing the source files for the facial animation and QC data along with a tutorial once I release the first set of L4D2 and L4D1 survivors.

    This is just me, but I think it's silly to request something of a model that hasn't even been released AND without even knowing the context of the model to begin with...

    That's why I said "if possible". Meaning I don't know if it can be done or not, though I'm sure it could most likely with that kind of skill. I'm not asking something crazy like redoing the entire thing. The model is great, I'm just asking for one slightly different alternate version of it. Why is that such a big deal to everyone?

    Because maybe you should wait till there's even a hint of completion at the intended final product.

    Is it released? No, it isn't, thus, it's not done.

    That really wasn't my point. He made it sound like it wouldn't be completed. It's obviously going to be released later.

    Whatever, I wish I didn't request for it now, then again with everyone jumping at me I doubt the result would be any different. Sorry.

    That's fine and all, really, but it's not really wise to request something of a model in which you don't know the context. Why did pappa design a model to look like that, you think? Did he just feel like making coach younger and white and with a torn up hoodie? There are good reasons that you should probably know of before making any requests like that. :p

    He said he made the coach model (including ones we haven't seen) based on characters in his story. So why would he change them?

    Anyways, I have it on good authority that the real coach model should be released in a few days, if not very soon. Then he'll start on the L4D1 survivors.

    A Zoey model with Tamara Stein's outfit would look good.

    Then again, I'd think any DR2 body fits well with any L4D/HL2 head in general.
