New Tau Cannon for Scout Car

A Request for Half-Life 2

I was poking around on some 3d modeling sites on my own free time and then I came across this model. I saw this and liked it because it had a newer and nicer looking model of the jerry made Tau Cannon then the one in HL2 that's on the scout car and was hoping someone could make this.

    We've got a pretty gnarly custom Tau cannon in Obsidian we're working on. I can push the idea of doing a Jeep version to the modeler.

    Ok, so there you go, it has no lod's and it uses viewmodel texture (i also included w_model texture tho)
    I'm not good at optimizing meshes, so i couldn't make lod's :c
    Everything else should work fine

    A quick update with firing sound. I'm not good with sound editing so there's no charging sound, also no particles.

    I keep improving stuff.

    How about something like this? Using the World Model and actually it's pretty close in size but I would have to export, compile, and try it out to see how well it would work or it it would work at all. Though idk if the Spindles will still spin or not with this.

    Edit: Ok I tried it in game but I did something wrong on my end, the cannon doesn't move at all and I think the hitbox or something got distorted since I can't enter the Buggy on the driver's side.
    Dang typos.

    While that model is nice, it does cost. I had plans on taking the beta view model and creating a world model from it but it wasn't as straight as I thought (meaning the model doesn't line up unless if it's only one spot at a time) but I have just thought of an idea of maybe using the world model of Black Mesa's Tau Cannon.
    Dang typos.

    Unless you're paying the $25 for that model, I don't see anyone taking this on if they expect to be reimbursed in internet good boy points.
