Lambda (Oct/08/2023)

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

Given that Lamba seems to strive for accuracy to goldsrc, I personally would much rather the weapons stay where they are, even if it clutters the numbers.

Most 3D model mods for enemies still look pretty bad, but i've been unable to find an isolated, working one for enemies just to pull this off. Everyone just expects people to repurpose them from Doomsday Engine or slaps them in awkward HD packs.

Yeah, I like how this is a weapon's mod first, I haven't seen any good ripped HL 3D models yet. Someone needs to make a good sprite pack of them.

Does the Glock still do more damage per shot than the MP5 in this? I wouldn't mind a re-balance pass on some of the weapons, since HL's wasn't always that good.

i should try this, but i'm gonna have to nerf a bit the shotgun's double-blast because that's the main reason of why i replaced the SSG with it, and buff a bit the 357

For the night vision, the overlay is there but it doesn't light up anything.
For the flashlight, there's nothing besides the HUD icon.
hmm, have you enabled opengl dynamic lights?

nope, i have no idea of how to convert those source mdl's to goldsrc
lizardcommando wrote:I think the updated models from Blue Shift should be a separate mod. Maybe the OP4 weapons should be a separate class.
Yeah, the updated models will be a separate addon, as for Op4 weapons, i would like to keep them in the main mod and use 'intelligent' randomspawners to make them optional

Like somagu said, i want the mod to stay faithful to the original game as much as possible, unless you people want otherwise

Apparently, I didn't notice that the dynamic lights in my options were turned off, thanks!

What is up with the items that actually damage you when you pick them up? That's kinda sucky. Also, what is up with the "Perhaps" item? Does it do anything?

uhh, it's supposed to be a little easter egg, i forgot to reduce the chances even more.
the perhaps item is just cosmetic while the other may hurt you but it can't kill you

This is an awesome mod. Great job. I just wish you had the Gravity gun in this.

But it's based off of Half-Life 1, not 2. :?

How did you convert the GoldSrc models to md3 while keeping their animation? is there any tutorial on this?

I'm looking forward to the OpFor guns, those were always my favorite. Will you be keeping the HEV sleeves somehow, or will you have to use the marine arms for those?

I currently use MilkShape3D, you have to decompile the .mdl and put all the textures on a single image, then rearrange them on the actual model. On the other hand you have to import the animations and reduce the frames to save some space, after that you gotta import all the needed animations and export them as a single one, then merge the retextured model with the animations and finally generate a quake3 .qc file for exporting it as .md3
i haven't searched for tutorials, i have learned this myself over the years

Yeah, those were my favorite too. And yes, i'll keep the HEV sleeves, otherwise i'll have to redo most of the models again just to change the hands
