The "Give us Gordon!" Petition...

Discussion in 'Half-Life' started by coolgangsta24, Jan 3, 2005.

  1. As many of you may already know, there isn't a Gordon Freeman model for HL2 or for HL2 Deathmatch. Well, this petition is to change that. Maybe if enough people sign this petition we can convince Valve to make a Gordon Freeman model, and we can take it from there, modding it into HL2 Deathmatch and other mods.

    I was dissapointed when I used the thirdperson cheat and found that there wasn't any model. How can you have an epic without a hero!?!? Anyway, I don't think any model made in the image of Freeman could do it justice. I remember hearing on techtv a while ago that Valve wanted HL and HL2 to be strictly first person, because third person would take away from the experience. But an incomplete story also takes away from the experience.

    So, I will be the first among who I hope will be many to sign this petition, and maybe change Valve's mind.

    *signs*

    Why would you want dozens of gordon clones running around DM?
     
  3. Well, what do you think it was like in the first HL?

    Ok, fine, maybe he shouldn't be in HL2 Deathmatch...

    *sigh* These things are always sad...I think this is just a waste of time...

    I think the model really doesn't matter that much. If you want your own Gordon model, have a mod team assemble one for you...

    Lots of gordons would be better than lots of Star-Wars combines. Perhaps.

    Btw, I love to play Garry's Mod online. Once that is properly supported more (if it is) then a choice to be retarded G-Mans AND Gordons would SO OWN :D

    Im up for it. Go to www.petitiononline.com to sign one up, your idea so you make it. The 'You smelt it, you delt it' kinda thing.

    Perhaps Valve did it to stop the inevitable Gordo platformer mod in it's tracks.

    I doubt they would want to stop any mods, lol. Well I just remembered one thing, isnt the actual model there? Dont they just need to add a skin and animations?

    /confused.

    I'd certainly like a gordon model for modding purposes, but I don't think the chances of getting it from valve are very high. Oh well.

    Just color a combine orange, that should be close enough.

    Or if you're feeling up to it, copy the model from hl1.

    You're not supposed to play the god damn game in thirdperson, so why the **** would they even bother to waste their resources making a model you're never supposed to see?

    You play as the character, as in your in his body and you see what he sees. There is no use to make a model, it'd be a waste of resources and time.

    HL2DM seems to be about the Combine/Resistance war.... seeing a squad of "Gordons" running around would feel weird. Still, it would be funny. :p

    I agree that it would of wasted time making a model. I believe valve wants us to make our own gordon.

    I mean, the third-view/HL2 MP model. That model that only has a grey cloudy featureless skin - looks suspisciously like Gordon when i saw it, but I could always be wrong. Mods will be cool, but Valve could probably do it most accurately. Isn't the dude Gordon based on a real man, like Kliener and Eli? If so, they could definately make it better than most modders.

    HL2DM with an army of gordons would rule. In fact, let's have every character for it :D including striders :D:D

    Guys somebody already did this, in fact I use the thing so that in single player when I die I see Gordon's body ragdoll.

    It's not for DM though but I think it'd be very esy to make it DM compatible, in fact It's probably as simple as dropping the files into the right folder,

    I agree. How can I consider myself "immersed" into a world if I can't even perceive my own presence in the world! Sure everyone looks and talks in your direction, but you don't even cast a shadow on them. And a floating camera can't stomp down on a breakable crate!
