    Hey, I'm in need of a custom model for a map I'm working on; an Egyptian themed jump map for the Soldier. Please don't turn away already, as the purpose of this map is to make a good looking jump map, something that has not REALLY been done before. (Hobo2 looks nice, but you can still tell that wasn't the purpose of its creation)

    So anyway, I need a giant statue of a face with it's mouth open enough for a player to walk through it, preferably with some room for them to jump a little. It needs to be somewhere under the size of: 2560 length, and 992 width. Only one side needs to be modeled and thats the face side of course. Other wise, go ahead and do whatever you want, just try and make it look like it belongs in the egyptian theme.

    If my request is to over the top (I know nothing of modeling) please tell me so I can change the layout where it wont need a big giant face. :p

    P.S. Sorry if I'm doing something wrong. (wrong section etc)

    Gaping mouths seems more like a Mayan/Aztec thing. Egyptians usually had fairly stoic faces on their stuff. Not that I oppose what you're doing, I just don't really think it can completely "fit" as you want.

    I agree with booj. Maybe have a sphinx with is chest folded open? dunno if that makes sense or if it is what your looking for but it may work.

    Any Sphinx or Pharaoh statue with a mouth big enough to walk in would be nigh-skybox-sized...

    Maybe walking through a doorway set between its/their/whatever's legs. Now that's more of a "grovel before your god and protector" thing going on.

    Well I wanted the player need to rocket jump upwards since the floor is untouchable or you get teleported back. It doesn't have to be a mouth, it can be pretty much anything that just allows me to create a door way for the player to move on to another room; an eye candy with purpose.

    That would work. And I will just simply craft the platform through hammer. I would be very happy if you, or someone were to make those, and be more then happy to give you full credit aswell as take in an idea or two since my map currently is short, and can be beat in about 10 minutes max by an above average jumper... Hah...

    Possible Solution

    Hey Pancake, i just realeased my map Denile B1. it is an egypt theme and im creating two custom models for it, when i finished them you could use them to. I'll also take this as an opportunity to offer modelling for anyone's maps, im in my third year of a computer graphics and animation course and have quite a bit of modelling experience, we have to do a modelling skecthbook this year(one model per week) so i got lots of time to make peoples stuff.
    My problem is i have just started mapping and have no experience importing stuff into the source engine. Iv looked over some tutorials but haven't but much time into it yet as the models and textures aren't done.

    these models are pretty basic, but if you want to see some better stuff, or have questions message me. thanks.
