Are the source files (.max/.gmax) to any infantry models (not the 2 in the Renegade SDK which clearly aren't the same actual source files used to produce infantry for the game and not things created by 3rd parties but actual original files used in the game either final or beta) available anywhere or were any such files released by Westwood (or leaked or whatever) at any point?

Also does anyone know if there is any information out there on how infantry models with LOD are made (not just the generic LOD tutorials but something that shows how Westwood did LOD for the infantry specifically)

EDIT:
I checked https://github.com/Ericson2314/Renegade-Beta-Assets and there are no such files (there are re-creations of old beta infantry and things but no actual complete infantry source files that came from Westwood)

It seems like infantry and first person hands are the pretty much the only things we dont have proper complete examples of. We have examples of all the parts of a building (exteriors, interiors, elevators, doors etc). We have examples of maps (i.e. Hourglass). We have examples of vehicles. We have examples of props (plenty of things in the buildings zip that could be classed as props if nothing else). I think we even have an example of a weapon somewhere (although IIRC there are questions about whether that weapon example is complete with all the animations or not)

Is there any specific reason why we're interested in the first person hands? There is nothing really special about them tbh, they just bind to the f_skelton which has the job of "holding" the gun and clip. Besides that its just a normal wwskin bind.

Please do let me know if you find any actual infantry source files from Westwood (not things created by 3rd parties that are probably not made the way Westwood did it and not the useless files from the SDK that clearly aren't made the way Westwood produced the infantry in the actual game)
