Hi I came to this site without noticing that it is a SFM/Garry's mod axed website. I am currently looking for erotic 3D models to have fun with. Except unlike most of you, I am not using SFM or Garry's mod, as it wouldn't fit my needs. I use Unity at work and I want to create an interactive experience. So, I need models for 3DS/Maya/Blender or any other modeling/animation program. Is there any software to do so ? Are there any websites that would fulfill my needs more than this one ? Thanks a lot !

Although many of our members favor SFM and Garry's mod because of their simplicity, we welcome all types of smutty CG. The program used to create it doesn't matter. We're more than happy to help out where we can. Here's what you need: Use Crowbar to decompile the models. You'll get a bunch of SMD (skeletal/static mesh/animations) and VTA (flex/morpher) files. For 3ds Max, you can import them using the SMD import plugin. For Blender there are the Blender Source Tools.(the 3ds max importer does not support flexes/morphs, the Blender version does) Textures can be converted to tga/png/jpg/whatever using VTFEdit. That's pretty much all you need. As a side note, it's common courtesy to ask a model's author for permission before you decompile, reattribute or re-release someone's work in a different form. Some of them might even provide you with the source files for the models in a convenient format. Decompiling and recompiling models for the Source engine is a destructive process and some data will always be lost, so source files are often better. Wouldn't want to see models I've worked on for hours to be put in a game without my knowledge or without proper credit.

Since everything I want to do is for fun, non-profit, and the models are downloaded for free, I'm sure asking for permission or even source files to the author isn't going to be a problem. Thanks for letting me know though, I'll try this as soon as I get home.
