I understand that Angrypeppermushroom has made Alien Swarm SNPCs. However, he made very few and their AI was a bit simple. The ones that I am going to be making are going to be different and a bit more complete.
SNPC alpha spawnicons:
Weapon alpha spawnicons:
WHAT THIS IS:
This is going to be a pack of Scripted Non-Player Characters (SNPCs) and Weapons to be used in Garry’s Mod based off of shit from the VALVe game Alien Swarm. They will be be scripted off of Silverlan’s SLV base, which allows SNPCs made using it able to be directly controlled by the player (NPC possesion).
Download link will be posted here at the initial release. Asking for beta won’t get you anything.
WHAT IS PLANNED / DEV PROGRESS:
• IAF Advanced Sentry - 0%
• IAF Incendiary Sentry - 0%
• IAF Freeze Sentry - 0%
• IAF High Velocity Sentry - 0%
• Alien Drone - 10% (will be included in first pre-release when I have a working model)
• Alien Ranger - 5%
• Alien Buzzer - 5%
• Alien Boomer - 10%
• Alien Parasite - 5%
• Alien Mortarbug - 5%
• Alien Shieldbug - 10%
• Alien Shaman* - 0%
• Alien Harvester* - 0%
• Alien Queen* - 0%
• 22A3-1 Assault Rifle - 15%
• IAF Grenade Launcher - 0%
• AVK-36 Marksman Rifle - 0%
*This SNPC is planned, but may not be in the initial release
• People who have played Alien Swarm will notice changes between the SNPCs I am making and the original NPCs in Alien Swarm. This is mainly due to my lack of advanced coding skill, but may also contribute to Garry’s Mod not being capable of the scripting that would be required to accurately recreate certain NPCs.
• If Silverlan or anybody else releases a better version of this add-on, I will cancel this project as soon as I am capable of.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Trust me, you don’t need to help, but it would speed up the dev progress of this and the release may come sooner.
I have no idea how to model and neither do I know what tools I need to do so. If someone is capable of taking models from Alien Swarm and rigging them with what they need to work as SLV base AI entities (in layman’s terms, for their animations to work as NPCs), then I could really use their help. I will specify my requirements:
I ask that all models go under this directory:
and textures for each model go under directories like this
“materials/models/alienswarm/model name here/”
Names for the Alien models should probably be like “aalien name here.mdl” (I.E. “adrone.mdl”), and IAF turrets as “iafgun_weapon type here.mdl” (I.E. “iafgun_flamer.mdl”)
If you would like to submit any models, please PM me with a link to where I can download them. Thank you!
