I'm working on my first map, and when my mapping in hammer is near completion, I need/want/like to make some custom models for it. A car, a some construction pylons, a lamppost maybe... I already downloaded the XSI Mod Tool, I just have to learn it (brand new to 3D CAD too!). Anyway, I thought came across my mind: NPC's. Are they possible? Even in a non-animated, posable, simple form? For example, in an inaccessible but visible room, you see an engy standing and looking at one of the console computers in a thinking pose. Or a spy sitting ion a bench reading a newspaper? My ultimate, pipe dream goal with this is to place a heavy sitting down in a van, in the driver's seat, with full facial expression in a glorious recreation of K. C. Green's TF2 "Sword Van" comic we all (should!) know and love. So, NPC's? animated or completely still... is it possible?
