Dota 2 reworked heroes (Part 1)


I was really dissapointed about Dota models for SFM. I’m not a modeller, but I did my best by editing their textures. There are still a lot of the problems with heroes models like shitty fingers, bones etc. I have tried make them look like their analogs from Valve’s arts.

The changes I made with heroes:

  • All 256x256 textures are 4x higher now
  • All “painted” shadows was removed
  • Almost all painted eyeballs were replaced with real human eyes
  • Almost all lips are now textured like real human lips
  • Almost all “dirty” textures are now cleared
  • Drow Ranger and Windranger are now have actual teeth instead of some mess

Part 1 contains:

  • Mirana
  • Keeper of the Light
  • Phantom Assassin
  • Pugna
  • Queen of Pain
  • Silencer
  • Vengeful Spirit
  • Windranger

Special thanks:

  • Yaroslav Gordienko for saving Source 1 Dota content before it was ported to Source 2
  • Slavka Alexeev aka Portman for helping with .VMT files
  • Keller Max for helping with WR and Drow's teeth

Just drop all folders in your SFM/usermod folder (or in SFM/Dota if you got one)

Original Dota 2 content you can download here:

I HIGHLY recommend you tou use auto-rigger for rigging them!

That new Mirana is even uglier, the offical now we have is fine, it got reworked some time ago

@ShawaZawa She is reworked only on Source 2. In our case – not a big deal. Better not to use her at all.
