    Post Bodyguard and Xen Commander NPC Shots

    I hope everyone had a good holiday! I didn't, as I work in retail currently. Chaos beyond belief.

    It looks like the video I promised is going to take a bit longer than expected. Instead, here's some shots of the new bodyguard NPC for v3.5 Bronze. The NPC was designed mainly for the Assassination game type, but mappers are free to place the NPC in other kinds of levels as well.

    These are development shots, so please pardon the additional text on the screenshots.


    In some of the shots, you can see a few dead (Alien) Commanders. The portals hovering in the air were recently created by them. The Xen Commanders generate the portals to summon reinforcements.

    The bodyguard model pictured above was created by Erosion_84 with help from The Zxeno Prophet. They'll be enjoying bonus features in the next patch. Good job guys!

    Thanks also goes to everyone else that somehow participated in the contest.

    Additional media will be posted soon. Stay tuned!

    This is awesome

    Can Tor summon new alien grunts with those portals? Class . . . The new bodyguards bear a stark resemblance to agentsmith don't you think? Shades and suit, forgot the earpiece though

    Honestly I'm really excited about this news update; for next few days I'll be constantly refreshing the main page for the new footage

    Keep up the stellar work!

    Wow, those guys are nice

    Is that MP5 a new weapon or is it just a model replacement for the 9mmAR?

    everythin looks very good, except i have to say that the bodyguard looks too much like gman and please don't tell me that it comes with custom weapon models because i prefer the original hl models.

    yeah, it could probably be replaced with a SD/HD Gman later on (if the mapper decides to replace it)

    Though the contest is theoretically over, I expect a high-def version of the bodyguard model would still be handy. Presumably you'd just need to rig the Opposing Force version of the Gman to the SC bodyguard's skeleton, and paste the sunglasses over... Erosion_84 or Sniper could probably provide source files for this purpose. If we made use of any resulting models, the creator/s would still receive full bonus features in 3.5.

    If I ever finish making Hell's Legions, I now have a handy stand-in for Arch Viles that spawn in more demon hordes. Can the xen commander be set up to spawn any monster (or entity) you want?

    All that needs to happen now is that the devs are somehow convinced to add the Shock rifle and Displacer for 3.5 Gold (Plasma Gun and BFG ).

    Niether the shock rifle or the Displacer will be in Svencoop, same with the deagle and the spore launcher. Either too powerful or too close to other weapons. If I had a link to the post that explained I would show you, but I can't find it.

    Nice to see Sven Viking too!

    I could make an entirely new sunglasses (with transparant shining glazes). Just let me know if it's needed.
