I am reporting my current progress as of now. However you might think this does not affect gameplay much. This is the start and the base of a good mod.
When making a map in Hammer you can now use my custom made vrad.exe, which allows to compile maps up to 1000000 polygons. I have not tested this if this will work. To select this vrad.exe you will have to go into your Hammer options. I did this because the source engine had a limit of 70000 polygons if i am right. Now if this is going to work is up to you to test.
I added a new npc which is based of the classic zombie we know. This zombie is called npc_citizenzombie. You can place it where-ever you like in your map and it will randomly choose a model on spawn unlike all other npcs. Don't worry about the torso bug or the headcrab when killing this npc. It is all fixed.
I also added the ability to drop weapons. There will be five buttons like in ZPS. There will be 5 weapon slots:
This will allow the player to carry only one weapon at a time for each slot. So you will have to carefully pick a weapon for each combat environment you will encounter. And every weapon has its own way off let us say bullet usage. Some weapons are depleted faster than another.
I slowed down the player speed a bit so the player can't simply be a superman. Carefully choose your movement when you move.
