Big Hands – A Request

12th July 2007

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half Life 1, 2 and 3

I have a request to make to the Half-Life 2 modding community……

Please would somebody be kind enough to build a mod that allows me to play other HL2 mods with very, very large hands.

I have no idea where I found the image above but once I saw it I couldn’t get it out of my mind. The player wouldn’t be able to hold or use any of the normal weapons but he or she could slap enemies around with brutal force, grab hold of an enemy and crush them and lastly pick objects up and throw them with incredible force.

Yes, it’s a silly idea but it might be really fun. So, if I decide to build it, would somebody give me a hand? HAHA, couldn’t resist it.

Seriously, could somebody build this for me?

    I could… If I had time 😀
    But if I did have the time Its a little to silly for me haha. But who knows I might practice my hand modeling skills soon 😉

    The pic is from a movie called “Science of Sleep” and it was a fiction about a guy who kepy going in and out of the conscious and sleeping world and features many scenes that are made to be like dreams, such as this one.

    I find the concept of dreams to be a more fun concept to experiment with, but if I somehow manage to get to touch either a modeling program or the code to HL2, I’d be more than tempted to work on this.

    I don’t know how to model and I don’t know how to edit HL2 in terms of coding, unfortunately.

  5. …why?…

    Two reasons. Firstly, because I think it would be funny and secondly why not! 😉

    Not everything has to be serious regarding gaming. Surely there is something that you have wanted to see in games that was just a little silly?

  6. I can understand why and it would be funny.

    I can see it clearly in my mind. You could go with a full mod that the player has nothing but big hands, but it would probably work out better if you had the ability to change or morph the hands back and forth depending on circumstances and situations.

    I would definitely use it to lay the smackdown on enemies. Crushed with an instant pound or knock them into buildings or high up in the air.

    There’s something I remember from my childhood screaming out at me that is similar to this but for the life of me I can’t place my finger on it.
