yeah it most likely isnt the TRAE Lara croft model. IIRc Free running is dated around November 2005. It's probably just a very early variant or some random lara croft model. im about 30% through the model format, it's a tricky one sadly :/

Trae was built on the same engine. It's unlikely that FR had lara hidden inside coz it's a bit older but you never know

From what we have been told a Lara Croft model was put into the Free Running engine as a very early prototype/concept of TRAE. This is confirmed in various interviews. I can fully confirm from the vertices(I have loaded) and mesh name "Lara" there is a 99% chance the model is left-over and still present in the retail Free Running game fils. Not forgetting, Free Running was delayed after Core Design was sold it's likely that during the time Free Running was completed, Core Design continued to work on the game fixing minor bugs and some where a long the line the assets for the build which Lara Croft was a playable character was some how merged resulting in it being in the final release.

Other than that, I really don't know but yeah, there really is a Lara Croft model in Free Running.

Cheers.

Eeeh, ash highlighted the ONE in someone, which to me implies it is not Lara.

We'll have to wait to see though ash you little tease

Oh how cool!
Well we will be publishing 3 screens of TRAE's Lara and a couple of other models soon so once you get the code working we can compare them!

We honestly worked really hard to get this stuff. It's very difficult to get this out of people who try to move on since TR didn't end very well for them. One of the guest on one of the TR20 events, for example, was criticized for her work very badly and as a result it took me years to get an interview with her and it was a huge surprise when she attended the event. This is not directed at you Victor, just for other people on previous pages.

Even Murti is a prime example, took him years to finally release stuff (YES WE HAVE TONS OF AOD STUFF TO PUSH OUT AS WELL, STARTING TOMORROW) because of criticism that AOD had. So the comments like "ugly " or "hideous" screenshots from clearly a work-in-progress Maya Viewport does not make it easier for us to receive more material. If it is something that you don't enjoy sometimes it is probably for the best to just ignore. These people don't get paid for sending us stuff, and frankly I don't get paid for publishing it or organising events. Whoever sends us stuff thinks that fans still want to see their work.
I particularly often link Core members to TRF threads with praise to Core but then there's always a post or two with something really mean and horrible. Basic self-awareness would go a very long way. Remember, people who did the artwork can also go online and read your comments. Took us ten years to finally get some media, let's just appreciate it?

But yes we are lucky to receive this stuff and we hope for more.
PS. @Victor, no Natla unfortunately but we have someone else

It will not be tomorrow, we want to balance stuff a bit since we have a LOT of things to publish and don't want people to miss any of them. But it won't be too long until we publish it I promise.
Tomorrow - some details on Vasiley's timeline
