<strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Android 17</span></strong></div><div>Last week we showed you guys a video of the new models that will be in 1.3. We mentioned all of the characters in the video plus Android 17. Please note that was not a mistake. Android 17 was not shown for a reason. The reason will be posted on our forum.</div><div>

<strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">10 Years of Half-Life</span></strong></div><div>To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Half-Life, ModDB selected the top five Half-Life mods of all time and gave them a tribute! The five mods were Sven Coop, Natural Selection, They Hunger, The Specialists, and us, Earth's Special Forces! Although they got the release date wrong, it's an honor to be featured!</div><div><object width="432" height="324" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="true" /><param name="src" value="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/115031" /><embed src="http://www.moddb.com/media/embed/115031" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="432" height="324" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="true"></embed></object>

Android 17 was not shown because he doesn't have any animations right now. The model has a temporary skeleton.

Yeah, nice model and skin! A17 was my favourite villan after all, too bad they did take Cell into the picture. After looking a bit closer u maybe could his eyes more evil, dunno how to say it :D. Am I right in assuming that its the A17 from the Halloween pic u once showed a long time ago?

I'm honestly not trying to pick **** when I say this- but the newer models seem to be getting worse, the further into development. I dunno maybe it's just me.

Edit: Well to be more specific, not the models. GG knows his way around the low poly stuff and the meshes are all solid, but the other input doesn't quite seem up to the quality it used to be.

Again, not picking ****- just an honest observation.

I dont agree for all the newer models, but I do agree for this one. Honestly it is not at the other models height if you know what I mean. The textures are to simple, and the face is...well doesnt look like c-17's face. Like wheres, i dont mean to criticize, it's just a honest opinion. Anyway I can be wrong if you show us a bigger picture, Making zoom to the image does not allow it to see clearly, even in the moddb page.

Btw nice party :yes:

So does Ready!

I can't really say much about the face, a closer picture would be helpful.
