Custom character to fully replace Alyx in HL2/EP1/EP2
Been working on this forever, finally decided to actually release it. This is a complete Alyx replacer, including the hurt EP2 variant after the hunter attack. It also contains all the necessary doodads to make it functional in HL2 and the episodes (even the picture above the c1a0 security desk that G-man is sitting at), including all the fancy bullshit shaders that you only see for two seconds. Behold!
The model includes pretty much every shader that could possibly be used on a humanoid character in the Source engine, and much of that is thanks to LT_C's command of source engine materials, so I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to him. He is also responsible for the super-neat eye textures and eye shaders as well. The model also contains a gratuitous amount of jigglebone, but not where you would think;. Zippers, holsters, buckles, earrings, ears, hair, pouches, shotgunshells, and probably some I forgot as well.
I'd also like to thank everyone who endured my incessant nagging about criticism/help on the model, it's been going on forever, I'm sorry!
I took mesh data from a variety of sources, including from Fallout: New Vegas, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, the hair was originally from Gears of War, the boots are a custom model by Venom, and Soria's concept and original model were by Zieroth.
I re-worked and remodeled all those pieces, made many more custom parts, textured and re-textured everything, rigged everything, created the phonemes, and compiled the model.
LT_Commander helped me re-work most (if not all) the VMT's for the shaders resulting in one of the more technically complex model replacements for Alyx.
