3D NPCs

Can I setup NPCs to use Van Buren's 3D models with custom hair and skin? That would massively reduce the number of FRMs I have to use.

That's how we started in the beginning. I don't really understand why anyone would want to do that, though. The Van Buren models and animations are way worse than what our 3d model and animation dudes did the last two years. If it's just about "I want to hit Van Buren's style as much as possible" - well, what we've seen in the old techdemo wasn't necessarily how the animations would look like in the final game anyway.

I agree with you, Van Buren's models were definitively WIP.
I will talk to Graf soon about the newer 3D models. I'm on Revision 412, hopefully they will work as planned!
