Greetings once more.

Since the best Gordon JK3Files has is inadequate (I mean, those glasses look terrible and so does that goatee) for a crazed fan like me, I went on a hunt to see if I could find a model of Freeman that was both realistic and accurate, and such I have.

Remembering my last request (Renamon), I went ahead and E-Mailed the author of the model, James "Talon" O'Hare, seeing what he would say when it came to porting the model to an engine other than the Source engine:

Spoiler: Show

Hey dude,

Yeah, the model is free for general use so long as I'm credited for it somewhere. I'm not sure if the release for it is kicking around, though.

The model's not in the fittest of states, a lot of it got lost in a hard drive crash and it's sort of been pieced back together from compiled meshes and textures. Looking back on it now, it's not that fantastic for deformation either. It might be worth giving it a clean up if you intend to rig it properly for a game :)

I'll send over what I have of it and you're free to do anything you like to it.

- James

He has, with that E-Mail, sent the model source files themselves to me. I've no personal preferences, nor have I looked at the model, but to anybody who takes this request I would heed the author's word, maybe tune up the model a little,

If needed I've already requested for him to come and confirm this e-mail himself. As well as bump the thread at the same time, if necessary.

Also, for anybody who doesn't know who Gordon Freeman is, he's this M.I.T Graduate from Black Mesa, also from the Half-Life series:

Again, I will provide the unaltered source files (that is, I will provide them to you in the same manner I recieved them) upon request. Thank you for reading.

Oh, I just call that guy The Administrator, but I believe Suitcase Dude is canonically known as The G-Man. Dunno, when I got HL2 I just jumped right into HL2DM and the Source SDK, and forgot the singleplayer game even existed....


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Yes, nobody knows his real name, but HL2ers call him the G-Man.

The real administrator of Black Mesa is Dr. Magnusson. You'll know it's him when he talks to you.

And Kouen, that's no way to play Half-Life 2.

Probably because in the MP for the first half life his model is called G-Man, not just because so called HL2ers came up with the name.

In other unrelated news if you clipped through is briefcase you could see various items inside, where in Half-Life 2 you can't see them.

And on a side note, anyone interested? I'll keep this thread as alive as possible for anyone who may be interested, but I won't bump it to death.

I think Half-Life 2 needs a good Gordon Freeman model first. Believe it or not, although you play as Gordon Freemon in HL2, Gordon has no model of his own. He's just a pair of floating hands in HL2.

Which explains why he's always getting shot at... Wouldn't you shoot at a pair of disembodied floating hands? XD

To be honest, I would be interested in seeing a Freeman model in JA... I'd do it myself, but my skill level is so pathetically low when it comes to anything modelling (This includes modelling, rigging, and skinning), it would turn out horrid. I need a hell of a lot of practice first. :p

Talonalus;4040226I think Half-Life 2 needs a good Gordon Freeman model first. Believe it or not, although you play as Gordon Freemon in HL2, Gordon has no model of his own. He's just a pair of floating hands in HL2.

Garry's Mod (Half-Life 2 mod) already has 3 decent models of him. If you see a model made by a person with "Talon" in their name, that's presumably the model I possess in source form.

If this is also attractive: I noticed the source files came with a .XSI.
