Introduction

Greetings NMRiH fans it feels like its been a whole year since I did an update last. Bad puns aside its time for me to pull my weight and do the weekly update! We have a new weapon model by Maxx and a prop model by Surfa to show this week. Quite a bit of news if you didn't notice the wall of text below, as well as a community contest so check all of that out below! Moddb voting has started and thanks to your support we are in the running for best upcoming Half-Life 2 mod of the year so please continue your support!

Team news for the week

We recently acquired another texture artist this past week, some of you forum regulars may know him. Nonetheless give a big old welcome to Bucky! He applied back in September then took some time to work on his artwork and well here he is new and improved. Maxx has been slacking off again, finally going back to work at Rockstar. He also finished making a Winchester Super X3 Flanigun model but whatever, you know what they say once a slacker always a slacker. CrazyMatt had been working on getting an awesome system for dynamic cloth movement on characters clothing as well as free moving ragdoll guts for the zombies. Ssba has been hard at work completely rewriting the zombie spawning code. After a few developer tests we decided to revamp our spawning system to make it more organic and effective. The new system is a large improvement on our old system even though it still needs more testing to fully gauge its effectiveness. While ssba was at it he also implemented punching and head movements to character actions to give a more realistic feeling of weight and movement. Surfa has created a great looking billboard in which we are having a contest for content to fill it up. (see below for a link with details)
