    Hi,

    I need a couple of player models (Heavy/Demo) in a sitting position. They will be sitting in a minecart. Once they are in a the cartI want them to ride around in it.

    Can you get them into different shapes or animate them? I've only seen the standard animation sequences and I've never used face poser.

    I think you basically answered your own question.

    You'll have to rig them into a sitting position, then just set them as prop_dyanmic, place in the cart, parent them to the cart, and viola. you're golden.

    Right, but how do you get them sitting? I've got them riding around ok but they stick to far out of the cart.

    Don't want them to hit their head on a beam sor something :p

    Find an appropriate animation, then set the default animation to that. Don't think that there are any sitting ones though.

    I told you, you'll have to rig them into a sitting position... this you'll have to do with a modeling program.

    Humiliation round crouch might work.

    Just so you know, animated dynamic models moving around the map in a cart are going to be relatively expensive.

    not "relatively" they will be expensive...

    so you better have them in an OoB area, because they can screw up gameplay too.
