[SFM2] Background Characters

Show more


A collection of "background" or NPC characters, that can be placed in scenes to have some more variety to the stock models that ship with HL:Alyx.

Installation instructions:

Extract the content of the archive into your Half-Life Alyx\game\hlvr_addons\ currentaddon folder

Rigging Instructions

The Auto-Attach Rig won't work on the base pose of the model. You have to manually rotate the upper and lower leg bones a bit as well as the lower arm bones before applying the rig. Things seem to work fine afterwards.

SFMLab is a free service. However, it costs about $0.03 to deliver you a 1GB file. With over 20TB of traffic every month and growing, SFMLab needs your help. If only 1% of our users each gave us $5 for a single month, we could keep the site running for several years.
