    Thats such a perrrfect replacement capnbubs, thanks. The animations are great now, and "fixing" the aesthetically disproportional "skinny" legs is FANTASTIC! This goes in ALL my QUAKE/mod directories.

    Thank again,

      This looks great! While there are some really good looking high-poly models out there, sometimes going HD is too jarring and you lose the rose tinted glasses effect by having something completely different. Sometimes subtle is better, and this is a good example! I hope to see more from you.
      Below is a comparison of the original Grunt model and the capnbubs model with the reforged skin.

      Edit: As a sidenote, the newest version of this model does not work with the reforged skin, but I edited this post to include a link for one that is compatible. Please note that this model is not edited by me, it merely uses an older version of the model made by capnbubs.

          yeah i like it. looks nice to have some medium-poly model which uses original skins
          also i agree with seven that the added nose is a nice touch, as well as the grunt dropping its weapon is also a very nice touch

          keep up the great work
          .
          are you curious about what all there is out there in terms of HD content for quake?

            I see you want to make “Brutal Quake” mod ...
            While working on models you could also make custom gibs models for each monster: arms, legs, chests, weapons, etc.
            No, wait ! There is no “could”, you totally have to

              actuaklly killerquakepack already has custom gibs like that for all monsters

                Very nice work! Shame about the vertex wobbling though.

                Please add a readme file to the zip!

                And please please release your source files (the skeleton!) so others can build upon your work just as you built upon id's.

                    I was actually thinking of doing custom animated models so you could blow the top half of a grunts torso off and watch the rest flop to the ground for instance.

                      Heh, your imagination reach much further than mine apparently. Not a surprise really, I am boring person
                      Your mod will be glorious and complete monsters models pack is what I am looking forward the most. The Grunt is great.

                            I'm trying to do a remake of the dog model but the original texture map is a nightmare. It is really horrible =/

                            I might go right ahead and just paint a new texture map for it.

                              yeah thats why i listed the dog as one of the models which imo needs an improved version most, cuz the original has seriously terrible UV-mapping

                              really amazing that ID seriously shipped something as horribly mapped as the dog in the state it is in
                              .

                                I know right, when I saw it again recently I had to wonder how something like that got into the finished game, it looks like placeholder art.

                                I've UV unwrapped my new model and I'm going to have a go at repainting it to match the aesthetic of the original. I'll post some shots when I'm done.
