Hello visitor(returning or new), Read my latest blog post and disregard most comments made before 2013. On janitor duty, Hopefully I can think of something better to add here soon. Until then, clean, clean, clean.
Ammo itself shouldn't be that scarce and I'm glad that you aren't taking that silly direction. I think most of the difficulty surrounding ammo management and making sure you have a full load of it, should come from the magazine system by how pricey or common they are on top of the ammo costs, also how expensive and rare the different ammo types are.
While every Stalker or bandit who has a NATO rifle should have a couple (probably not all full) mags of 5.56 on him and a handful of bullets for topping off, I don't think the AP rounds should be as common or cheap. It would make sense if military grade steel core AP rounds were scarce compared to standard rounds even in the Zone. This would also give pistol caliber weapons and shotguns a advantage, as their special ammo types would be a bit more common and cheaper since slugs and the special pistol rounds would be available readily outside of the Zone/black market and be smuggled in a higher quantity.
I can't believe I missed the recent update! I was wondering where you guys went, Coven was one of my favorite WIP Multiplayer Half-Life 2 mods and I'm glad it has returned after years of waiting.
Voted! Been following Redux for a very, very long time and every little update released. Just wondering if there will be re-animated / re-modeled weapons that are correctly mirrored or plans in the future for it? Other than that question I'm excited from all the progress made so far, especially the rebalanced weapon upgrades and magazine system!
I have tried that it still doesn't work.
I have Windows XP and I cant click the "Next" button on the installer... Ive looked around and tried various things and still cant.
Sexiest handgun in the world? Oh yeah!
Needs more heatshield... This one looks to slim.
The Tactical Response Rifle TRR-030?
Weapon modifications from CoP? Or completley new reblanced ones?
Its Beard! I have a gut feeling its Beard!
Weapon upgrades much...?
Will 2.5 have different / optional hand textures? Just wondering. The new hand textures are too dark.
Awesome! Updated and launching now.
This is going to hold us over till RotR is updated! Great job!
Will the faction Final Day be present since this is before ShoC?
I have to copies of STALKER And i run SmP one one and Stalker Complete 2009 on the other! SmP Is a grea time killer! Looking forward to 2.5
I have a question. I missed out on the special edition release becuse i didnt have enough cash. If i buy the standard edition now will i have beta access?
Great mod! Just replayed a the entire HL series a month ago cant wait to replay all the HL1 games in source escpecially HL:OP.
Greatly anticipating this mod as HL:Op was my fav HL1 game.
Dont give up!
Mayby it fires Combine Dark Energy 11.7mm pulse rounds? We may never know.
Play it first.
Already played a round of it. Feels really polished great job SWR! Good luck with RotR
Its looking very nice so far! Love the demoralizeing missle.
Hope it will be tougher than a jeep. Mayby even resistant to small arms infantry?
Will all weapons use default Hand Model so retextures will work with them? I dont like the hand textures SMP has by default.
I can make exactly 5 references to games and movies just looking at this beast of a two shot wonder.
1.2 gigs of awesomeness. :D
/insert troll comment about shockwave never coming out.
Good progress. Hope the next update is twice as a tasty.
"# Ability of the NPCs to use the alternate fire of many weapons."
Oh man no more playing chicken with a shotgun against a shotgun soldier.
Errr its a bit complex the key combination.
