you should make the shotgun spawn oftenly and the revolver rarely. other than that, good mod. also, are the first person view weapons 3d models or really good rips?

I know, that's one of the main problems, i didn't want to replace the doom shotgun with its hl equivalent because the hl shotgun is powerful enough (unless i nerf it) to replace the super shotgun so i replaced it with the revolver, consequently, the revolver will appear more frequently than the shotgun because of shotgunguys. And thanks! the first person weapons are 3D models

Really good mod so far but I have some random question, will there be additional weapons? (i.e Half Life : Opposing Force weapons)

Awesome :D. How many of Opposing Force's weapons are you planning, is it gonna be all of them, or just the ones that wouldn't be redundant with the HL1 stuff like the Spore Launcher, Displacer, M40a1, and M249?

Oh, so you moved from Q2Stuff to that?

Really nice, if you need any resources, i'll be happy to help you.

I actually had the unfinished version here aswell, but this is working nicely.

Ok, after thinking trough it, i think i found a nice order and item replacement ideas:
Chainsaw: Can give either the Wrench, the Barnacle, the HiveHand or the Shockroach.
Pistol: Start with a glock, have alternate Zombieman or have a small chance of Zombiemans dropping the Desert Eagle.
Shotgun: Gives the SPAS or the Desert Eagle, both of those are normal weapons. In DOOM1 based IWADs, it randomizes between the SPAS, the 357 (with a ultra slim chance) and the Desert Eagle
Super Shotgun: Chance of giving a Crossbow or a 357
Chaingun: Gives the MP5 or the M249, Alternate chaingunners or normal ones have a small chance of dropping a M249.
Rocket Launcher: Randomizes between the RPG-7 and the Spore Launcher
PlasmaGun: Randomizes between the Egon and the Tau
BFG9000: Gives the Displacer.

ITEM REPLACEMENTS:
Bullets: Clips (already made)
Shotguns: Can be Shell drops with a VERY small chance of 357 bullets.
Shells: Can either be single shells or 357 bullets (just change the chances, already done)
Shell Boxes: Either Shotgun shell boxes or really rarely 357 ammo boxes
Bullet Boxes: Either M249 Mags or 9MMAR Clips and Grenades
Single Rockets: Grenades, Tripmines or a single rocket.
Rocket box: Normal RPG7 ammos, giving 2 rockets each
Single cell: Normal Cell box
BFG Cell: Y'know that unused orange Cell ammo box? It goes there.

Bandages - I think some version of HL or some mod had some bandage models, i think it was Sven Coop, replaces small health.
Health Vial: Replaces Stimpaks
Medikit: Replaces Medium Medkits
Stack of Medkits: Can be a bandage + 2 stacked medkits, replaces Megasphere

Suit Batteries: Replaces Armor Helmets
HEV Helmet: Just take it from the playermodel, replaces Green Armor
HEV Chestplate: A bit useless without the other parts, but will protect ya. Replaces Blue Armor

Invisibility: Gives you the Long Jump Module, can't get invisible but you can avoid projectiles now!
Backpack: Those ammopacks found in XEN now can be found here.
Megasphere: A piece of XEN crystal, will overload your HEV suit, giving you 250 armor points.
Berserk: Makes you faster and your Crowbar deals more damage. Can be a black medkit, i dunno?
Invulnerability: I have no idea what item could be used to symbolize that, sorry.
Hazmat Suit: The HEV Suit is now active. Now you are resistant to environmental hazards (not a temporary powerup anymore, it reduces toxic and other environmental-releated damage as long as you have battery to spare), it also has the annoying warnings (if possible)

DECORATIONS:

A few decorations could be replaced with XEN stuff, like Spores (so you can use your barnacle to grab onto them), or explosive spores, or other organic weapons (Like Snarks, which i have 0 idea on what to replace)

MISC IDEAS:
357 Zoom restored (could be conflicting if the Crossbow already has it)
Crossbow Explosive Bolts (in GMod's Half-Life Renaissance, it was used for unzoomed shots, now for this i have no idea if that could be appliable)
Displacer random teleports: Teleports you to one of the map's secrets (could cause stuck players if doors were required to be unlocked to reach the secret, perhaps it teleporting you to a key or something would be more interesting)
Barnacle Grappling hook: Can be used on meat decorations, like severed Zombieman bodies and whatnot. Would discard using Spores and would make sense lore-wise.

I also wonder if you can also include the HD Weapons as well (M9 Barreta and the M4A1)

Maybe but not for now

the model's geometry remains untouched, perhaps it's the chroming effect, because gzdoom doesn't support that effect and it's complicated to replicate on a static texture, specially on this weapon

I was sad when Mr.Pencil confirmed to never release the faithful Half-Life weapon mod... Until now! Your work is also faithful with extra effects. Brilliant work on that.

Well, i also had plans for that:

Zombieman would be zombies of diverse types (Guards, Scientists and Soldiers) or Headcrabs
Imps could be Gonomes or Bullsquids
Shotgunners could be lesser soldiers (Equipped with Desert Eagles and Pistols)
Chaingunners would be replaced with Human Grunts (With SMGs, SAWs and Shotguns, since they are pretty OP with the shotgun, the shotgunners are on this tier) or Human Assassins
Pinkys could be Houndeyes
Spectres could be Pit Drones (more for the speed than the visibilty)
Cacodemons could be Alien Controllers
Lost Souls could be Stukabats (Animated versions exist on the game's files so, why not?)
Pain Elementals are a confusing case, perhaps bigger Alien Controllers that can spawn smaller ones
Revenants could be Vortigaunts (AKA Alien Slaves)
Hellbruisers could be replaced with Baby Voltigores
Hellknights could be replaced with Baby Gargantuas
Arachnotrons could be either Vortigaunts, Alien Grunts or Shock Troopers
Archvilles could be Tors (from Sven Coop)
Spider Masterminds could be Kingpins, Voltigores or Gonarchs
Cyberdemons can be either Gargantuas or Nihilanths (ofc, a bit nerfed so it isn't troubling if there's more than one)
The Icon of Sin could be the Geneworm, but that would require a new map so, better not.

Decorations (especially hell ones) could be replaced by underwater Hairs, Plantlights, Tentacle Trees and Spores, while some of them are passive, others attack you, and would be a cool addition.
UAC decorations could be replaced by Turrets and whatnot
Spoiler:
I don't think i missed any monsters, but if i did, lemme know, i will try and find a slot for them, its really hard to balance because the monsters number from HL diverges A LOT from DOOM in quantity.
