Need combine models for Episode 3; "The Closure"

A Forum Thread for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

need combines

The last 4 years i have worked hard on my 5Th HL2 ep2 sp-mod called Episode 3: "The Closure" and it is almost done. Now i need new combine models, (or at least great new combine skins). I did see some really awesome combine models here; [http://hl2.gamebanana.com/skins/134846](http://hl2.gamebanana.com/skins/134846 "") But they don't work, the file only has one .vpk file per combine model so that can't be right i assume. The uploade TheManClaw said he only made the skins. I did sent him a pm but i didn't get a answer yet, although i just did sent it to him 3 days ago so maybe he will answer. Does someone know were i can find the original models that he used so i can get them working. Or does someone else know some great combine models? They have to look a bit like combines. Should you want to see videos, screens or info about my mod then please check my mods Moddb page here; http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-closure/news/hl2-ep3-the-closure-inside-the-borealis

    Surely you can't be making an EP2 mod if you didn't know how to extract VPK files. All of the content now for source games are in VPK files instead of GCF files. You can use GCFScape to open VPK files too, but you can only open the dir ones.

    VPKs are pack files. Use GCFScape to open them and extract the models.

I forgot to mention user created ones can be opened too.

    Let me start with thanking you all for the advice. I did try to extract the VPK with winrar, what obvious didn't work. I now used GCFScape and could extract them without any problem, many many thanks fot this! (although i don't agree with; **Surely you can't be making an EP2 mod if you didn't know how to extract VPK files.** Because mods are modifications and i am formost a mapper. That is why i am not familiar with models, npc's etc so much. And even mappacks are mods. But, that is not important. I am very glad with all your help, i was already afraid i couldn't use these really awesome combine models. Now i have to ask permission but i can't find any info on who made the models, because TheClawMan who uploaded them made only the skin textures. And he hasn't asnwered yet my pm. Should you read this TheManClaw, could you please tell me who made the models so i can ask, or does anyone else knows this? (i never use "stuff" without permission.) thanks, Leon (is there a setting on Gamebababa so i receeve a mail when a comment is placed here in this thread?)

Perhaps it would've been helpful to you if you included the second part; "All the content for source games are in VPK files now."

    4 years and all you have to show for it, is a bunch of stolen content. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Sorry Kosai, but i didn't really mean that. It was just that your comment was so out of place because nothing from all my 24 levels is stolen. I made them through daily very hard work, for the past 4 years! And that someone then just tells me that i did steal them, and that i have to be ashamed of myself is really to much to bare for me! And all the models and textures that i use, those are not stolen as well, because each and everyone of them are given by the makers of them for me to use them in my mod. I take these things VERY seriuosly! So, when someone then just comes by to tell me that i need to shame myself for steeling.... well, i assume you can gues then how i will feel... So, i was not laughing at all! Please first look in to things before you start to accuse people of such serious issues. Should you have taken one minute to look at my mods Moddb page you would have known this all. I hope you do considder and take the time to comment here ones more? greetings, Leon

    First i thought, i just leave it at that. But, i just have to say this. It's so easy to bash projects in to the ground, just because you feel like it, or think something without actualy look in to it. A real man is not ashamed to admit he is wrong, or at least explain why he did feel the need to accuse without prove. But, i already know now that you will not comment again. So why do i even bother? Its sad, that is all i can say. I hope you learn from this, take this in to account and keep it in mind for the rest of your life. Leon
