Convert .nif (Skyrim) to .mdl (Source)

    Is there any easy way to accomplish this without having to be an experienced modeller? I'm trying to import a few models used in Skyrim to Source format.

    Skyrim uses these file types for models;

    .nif files for meshes
    .dds files for textures (easily ported with VTFEdit, though I'm not sure how to apply them exactly)
    .hkx files for animations

    That's all I could find in my directory related to models. Any help? I found someone who translated a whole bunch of Argonian models and a dragon to Garry's Mod, so it has to be possible.

    You're going to need to find a way to go from .nif to .smd, then from there skys the limit. You're going to totally have to add attachments though if you want it to be a player model.

    Not a player model, just an "NPC". Thanks for narrowing down my search, I'll look for an answer on the Google.
