The original model by Valve is inexcusably bad. If people have fixed the vanilla model they certainly haven't uploaded it here. So I simply mirrored the spinner on the right hand side of the crossbow and viola it no longer is blatantly unfinished looking by default. Simple fix but a necessary one. Works with Half-Life 2, Lost Coast, Episode 1, Episode 2 of course. Before: After:
I'm calling this V1 as I may add the back of the crossbow in the future.
FINALLY! Now I can add this to base HL2 and not simply use HL2 Update.
If I may offer a suggestion, do you think you could maybe move the position of the hand to the front of the crossbow? Because the hand is currently gripping where the trigger is supposed to be, and the hand that is supposed to be gripping the trigger simply isn't there. I mean how does he fire it? From the handle?
