I've got all kinds of old models now including: all old knight+skeleton minions, the 48th Slave (Voodoo Shaman), Averdrian, the Blind Monk, the original Dr. Mundo before he was a big Hulk, the Plant king, Rob Blackblade (he eventually became Garen), an even older alpha model of Rob Blackblade, Alpha Sivir, the Spider queen, and the Water Wizard and his seahorse summon. I've also got old alpha turrents + buildings and so much more!
In other words I found the original closed beta game and I have all the goodies that are stored inside! I think I may put all my other projects on hold for a bit to do these.
So here's a work in progress thread to track my progress with reimplementing these into LoL. It will take some time to do them all so I'd be happy to accept help for the Champions if anyone wants. Also suggestions for heroes that should be replaced by the removed heroes would good.
Dr. Mundo (non-hulked):
Sion (not totally sure if he's different but I think he is I'll check later):
Kassadin the Void Walker:
Voodoo Shaman (48th Slave):
Lee Sin the Blind Monk:
Note: He may be confirmed as a new hero now but it's almost April Fools: http://www.leagueofl...-sin-blind-monk
Gavid the Plant King:
Rob Blackblade even earlier concept:
Priscillla the Spider Queen (and her spider pet):
Water Wizard (and his seahorse):
Old Beta Chaos/Order Minions:
Order Melee Minion:
Order Ranged Minion:
Order Riding Minion:
Chaos Melee Minion:
Chaos Ranged Minion:
Chaos Riding Minion:
Old Beta Chaos/Order Buildings/Turrents:
Order Turrent Normal:
Note: The icon that comes with this shows a crystal floating above it, I'm going to dig in the filesand add it back to the model since we couldn't use the effect anymore after replacing the current turrent.
Order Turrent Angel:
Order Turrent Dragon:
Note: It has red crystals but the file and folders are all named order meaning it'd be the blue team's. Interestingly enough it actually has attack animations though I don't know if they'll work in the current LoL game as our current turrents only have idle animations.
Order Barracks Wizard:
Note: I have no idea where this was used perhaps the minions generated here. Could maybe be a Inhibitor now instead.
Chaos Barracks Wizard:
Note: Man Riot wasn't very color coordinated back then red on the Order turrent, and blue chaos wizard and red order wizard? Ah well at least the skulls make it distinct.
Chaos Turrent Normal:
Chaos Turrent Giant:
That's all the images I have for now there are actually 3 more turrents for both Chaos and Order that pretty much consist of just quartz-like crystals with rings around them I'll post pics of them tomorrow. There may also be a few more old heroes that have changed appearance I'll look to see what I can find.
Perhaps it's important to state that these models all have the original skeleton files and animations and they do still work in game with those. The only thing is there isn't an easy way to convert from sco to skn so you have to rebind the model to the skeleton. This is where the real work comes in.
Also if anyone digs up the Urf's model feel free to share it with us here.
