    How do you find the time to make all this great stuff? Really nice models, although I don't really like the brown texture on the neutral model. I think a slightly lighter grey than the rest of the chair would work better, but that's just my opinion :p

    Ah, I wondered if you were going to release these when I saw them in your other screenshots. Great models, really solid work.

    Just saying, the model is 90 degrees clockwise of the original spytech chair. Not much of a problem unless you're me, who replaced whole rooms of chairs at a time.

    I really overused the executive chair in my current map so this was VERY helpful to have, if only just to de-bland my map a little.

    Well, the neutral one is still kinda red'ish to me. If its just a diffirent gray tint (or white or black) then its realy neutral. Having such a similar color blue'ish would also be welcome.

    Great work though.

    just as a kind of color reference i used, here's some comparison. like i said. i based the neutral color on the chair.mdl which has only one skin, then i looked at terminal_chair.mdl and used the red color as my red color but found the blue skin too turquoise so i changed that to something more blue :)
    hope you can understand my choice better. cause i was about to use grey as neutral but found it looked too boring colorwise and think this brown neutral can bring in "more" color variety than grey in a gearsofwar kinda way :D

    Actually there is a rather blatant issue with this model: the collision box is basically the whole block around it. I can't jump onto the seat, and I can shoot an arrow at the empty space above the seat and it will stick.

    Design-wise, though, it's awesomesauce. It'll be a nice change of pace from the two chair models we have to work with.... although it just now occurred to me to wonder if it's period-appropriate... :huh:

    you are absolutely right. up till my latest model everything has a solid box as collision :(
    i just never thought about making them properly - shame on me for that !
    i uploaded an updated version now which has a collision box similar to the chair-tf2-model.
    thanks for your comment on this - really constructive to know how the model has problem when put to use ingame - guess not everyone bothers downloading and testing the models, so thanks for that !
