check out this site.

http://www.xcomhlmod.8m.com/Models.htm

The half-life models of the sectoid and Chryssalid are quite good. Obviously a mod group and I don't know what kinda license they are doing with the mod. But perhaps, we can ask if they are willing to join forces or allow us to use their models. Might work since they are fellow X-Com lovers. Who knows :)

Also there is an unfinished quake 1 total conversion of x-com from 1997. It includes some quake models.

btw that link for the half-life mod I gave is the old website. It contains alot of the interesting screenshots. they setting up a new website at http://www.lasthopemod.com. But right now that site only has a forum like this one on it since it is still under construction. So you want to visit the old site too from the first link. Also you can see many interesting screenshots in one of the forums of what they are working on currently.

:) well I was more wondering if they would let us use their models for our remake instead of us doing a half-life mod. I'm sure they would love to play a remake too. :) Their forum also has a UFO2000 titled message just like this one does :LOL:

On another note, speaking of HL and Xcom, has anyone noticed many of the HL aliens seem like cooler versions of the aliens from Xcom3?

Let's see...

- they come thru a dimensional portal from a weird alternate dimension, just like in Xcom3...
- the Headcrab is like a clone of the Brainsucker, only it's not that stupid orange colour...
- the Poppers look like those little electric dog thingies...
- the Alien Slaves look almost like Spitters...
- the Alien Warrior could pass for a cooler version of the Anthropod...
- ...and in the end of the game, you have to travel to the Alien Dimension and go through a series of Alien buildings to reach your final objective.

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

:LOL: wow, I would have never guessed. I took one look at XCom 3 and decided it wasn't for me. Guess I was just too pissed that they went away from the original theme of the first two that I didn't even give it a chance.

Apoc lost the atmosphere, but gained tons of gameplay. If somebody would make a graphical PC for it to replace the lame artwork/graphics, it'd be perfect...

The irony about Texas and the death penalty is that Texas uses lethal injection which as I understand is the most humane form of execution available. It's basically the same as taking the cat to the vet. You fall asleep and then they stop your heart.

ok :) was just visiting the last hope site again to drop apoc1985 a note to see if he can give us some of the models to play with now.. Anyway, I see there some new models with other aliens on em. :) Crysallid isn't included this time since the page is a work in progress.. Like I said before these guys do commercial quality work.

*Squeeeeeal* That sectopod looks good enough to eat! (And spit, and swallow back again.) What do you think, Gangsta? Are they gonna let us borrow the models? I'm studying Blender3D right now like Red Knight asked me to, so I'm kinda excited on editing my first alien. (Making one from scratch is out of my league right now, but I think I can handle facelifts and nosejobs. :D )

yuppers :) I had Apoc85 leave a PM for Red Knight. Anyways the conditions at the moment are that we don't let the models leak out into the public since the lasthope people haven't even released in awhile for halflife. I also suggested to Apoc85 that Last Hope handles the release and packaging of their graphic package for this project on their site. I'm sure Red Knight will agree with me that it is best that our group only releases the code for the engine and diffrent gameplay modes and the graphical data will be in a diffrent package handled by lasthope.

Well we'll prolly add models from other sources.. perhaps :) ya wanna go to the lasthope site and leave Apoc a PM. I just like to play it safe keeping the graphics and the code seperate. You know like how they don't bundle mame with arcade roms kinda thing.

Just something I noticed. If you play CS or any other half life mod you know that the graphics arent the best. Even on opengl gfx mode, but everything I saw on that site, including the farm map, looked extemely good. I am defenatly going to download it when it comes out.
