Soldier Zombies


#1

Found zombie grunt models and textures in the BM files, hell, one is even used as a prop in FaF. If I swapped the regular zombie models in with these ones, would it work? I’m thinking of doing it for a custom map.


#2

Never mind, there’s a Zombie Grunt NPC, even. Why isn’t it ever used ingame?


#3

It’s used in the latter half of Surface Tension. They were a new addition after many maps were already completed so there wasn’t much reason to go back and readd them. Plus, lore-wise they make the most sense in ST as that’s when the HECU are visibly getting their shit handed to them.

They ARE in Black Mesa, and they first appear in Surface Tension. Rejoice, for all of your wishes were granted!
They have been added with the Halloween Update. Just read literally the post above yours!

Oh that is right, I turned off the ability to register. Hm… Perhaps now is the time to turn it back on?

There has got to be a way to keep the spammers at bay.

Well, when I registered, the site asked me for the name of the protagonist of the half-life series.
So that has been tried, and it didn’t work.

I think a better system may be to ask the user to visually identify an enemy in the game based on a screenshot.

All great suggestions… however this forum software does not give us the ability to arbitrarily add registration parameters.

What email address should we have on file? I can change it for you.
