    Sorry the double post. Friends at MechWar3 also pointed out the feet and lower legs. I corrected them and just need to re-do the unfolding. The newer version will look like this.

    (I removed the old version and will re-up the new version when it is done. Sorry for all the delays and problems)

    Well, apart from the bad news about my missing files on FileFront (they deletec my older files, all of the ones that I submitted, the unsubmitted ones are still there), I did upload the MW4 Zeus there.

    http://hosted.filefront.com/shiftdel41

    I did correct all mistakes and bad unfolding, thanks to BLaaR, who kindly beta built this model for me. I also did a new review of the model, and found other places to correct/improve the unfolding job, so this model is the final one (I hope).

    Thanks Cantaris (from MW3.org forum) for finding the benefactor who provided the original MW4 models, and for allowed me to work with this model.

    Next one will probably be the Fafnir.

    Hi. Yet another model is available. This time it is the MW4 MadCat. This model was made possible by Dark133 and shiftdel. It is added to my filefront page so you can download it from there.

    If you know how to work with alpha channels, you can make customized skins for any MW4 mech. The original game texture is made of a base texture (alpha channel) where the skins are applied over.

    Excellent mate. I started doing a shadowcat back when the game was still being played but lost the mesh and couldnt complete it. Lucky i was just farting around on the internets and found this site! Just out of curiosity, how did you extract the models from the game? If at all possible, the heavy gear 2 game has a ton of exellent models for the taki...err, building! looking forward to keeping up with this thread.

    Actually me or most of the guys there don't know how to extract models from MW4. I modelled my models from scratch, using reference pics from the MW4 manual and screen shots of the game.

    Recently a guy on MW3.org foruns was able to contact someone who did extract the models, I got some of them, and my first release of the original ones was Zeus (cleaning the mesh and unfolding), now I'm working with Fafnir...

    You don't need to apologize. I didn't understood your question as an offense ;)

    Actually I can only extract the textures from MW4 games, that's why my models looks closer to the original game shapes...

    Not sure, but I think that someone released some stuff from Heavy Gear, but I can't recall what and where, sorry...
