      Just checked myself, the model is called cm_gib01.mdl, i think it's model that never got used. But it's weird that it has all the stuff seperated (It has legs and everything on different models) but i can't load them, and since she has no animations at all, i can't see is they start working when i load the rest mdls up to 18 as weapons. And the vmt file that model loads is called as crystal_maiden_iced, i have no clue about that one. It has 0 bones so the modeling team hasn't even touched her animations, it still loads the materials used by normal cm. (crystal_maiden_color) But that's not Alpha or anywhere near for sure, made during 2013 100% if any1 has info about that model please tell me too.

      Edit: The reason why i'm saying it's from 2013 is because the early models were never broken up (legs and arms and everything at different models) Like this guy did. They started breaking the models not a long ago to start creating cosmetic items for the heroes, try to guess did they have cosmetics in the early alphastages?

      Edit 2: Sorry i said the model was cm_gib01.mdl, it was actually cm_gibs.mdl, they were almost similiar so i got a bit confused, so cm_gibs seems to be created out of all the 16 parts of the model but still has no animations (and only 3 bones, can't do much with them)

        In CM's case it may also be caused by her death animation - falling into pieces. I clearly remember current CM having smaller pieces (not for cosmetics) of her in SDK as well.

          Yea, it could be her deathanimation, but still, it looks so bad in the modelviewer, how does it look so much better ingame? I meant the whole cm looks just terrible in that picture, and i don't think particles are fixing the whole model ingame either?

            Probably the glitch of SDK - I had similar issues with Slardar and Invoker. If you watch closely you'll notice that her face textures are applied to her hand.

                Right, the file for our current CM. This one, however, is likely for alpha CM.

                Also, the file name "cm_gib01.mdl" may give a hint.

                  If the dev are still reading here it would be good so we can know about this model but sadly they hardly read the forum.

                  I didn't understand gib much from this link because I'm not understand most english word(not english speaker). but still it nice to know about it. And I can't hold the laugh after read google one. lol

                    To put it easily, "gibs" are pieces left from one's body after being smashed by a strong force.

                        • Coolest thread in the forum, will keep a look out.
                          Any idea if i could maybe get the old map skins back? I kinda want to see if it would work.
                          Spoiler:

                            You mean Snow Greeviling Map and Halloween Diretire Map Skin or Hero old model and texture?

                            If you mean old Hero I think you can get here https://sites.google.com/site/veldtfx/dota-2-mod-index but I didn't try it myself so I don't know how it work.

                            • That alpha razor looks awesome, and fits with the lore of being an undead "punisher" of souls. I always though that the one who made the concept art of razor was a fan of Dio. Razor looks like the one in the Holy diver album.
