Valve released all the meet the sniper video models.
Was waiting forever for these
Sweet I may have some good use for these.
well the pun for the van is that the truck is wearing a "hat"
Hey, maybe SWATY can finally make that map inspired by Meet the Sniper.
Truly, truly awesome. :O I've always liked that camper van and wished it was available in-game. Come to think of it, was it ever previously visible from anything but the back/side of the back? The front end is all new to me...
Because SiniStarR apparently missed it D: (but if my joke detection is screwy do tell me):
The pun is in the van being a CAMPER van, because ... snipers tend to camp. Yeah.
Also: Does the license plate number suggest HeadShot? :O
The Headshot sign fills me with glee.
The only problem is that some props that MAKE SENSE to have collision models (i.e. the billboard, the headshot sign, camper van, etc) don't have them. Oh well, that's what our toolbrushes are for.
They were made for a film, so the sensible thing is not to bother with collisions
Prepare to be flooded by people inspired to map asking how to make the Props not walk throughable. Cool Models. Although really, the Mug, Wobble Head and Apricot will be pretty useless for anything other than easter egg detailing..
They'll become the new Frog in scavenger hunt challenges!
A few more cool detailing bits and pieces never hurt. You could put the #1 Sniper mug on a crate or a table near an obvious Sniper spot, say.
Really cool, but like i said before, please contact one of the site staff to post pages in the correct forum so we dont have to move stuff and deal with multiple threads!!
Awesome. Extra awesome. I have good plans for these, the camper van goes well with the mini-theme I'm making.
Interesting little quip about the sword van, I might be able to find a use for these. I'm guessing that it would be relatively easy to strap the phone to a telephone pole? Or is it already on there. Also, I understand that there's more to the assets than what they've just shown us. Do we get the road textures too?
I love how you're all basically ignoring the fact they're not meant for maps. Hence no collision models
I'm surprised this wasn't the original idea, since the civilian maps were sniper only for blue team. Making it a logical if not obvious easter egg (despite the fact that the sniper is RED in the video).
Do this model have any form of optimization (LODs, not to many poly's) if not welcome to HELL! (if ppl spam these in their maps)
