Okay, big sudden revelation to me in GMod today. I was messing around in construct and put a strider npc in it. Had some fun with some Hunters by using a 3rd party script of some sort to command to Strider to start using it’s warp cannon on the unsuspecting things. Then I decided to bring in the ol’ jalopy and mess with the Strider by driving between it’s legs and things like that. Just being dumb. Then, I got inside the map’s large building area and was contemplating tossing a Magnuson on the thing, when I hear that curious stomping sound. I thought to myself that the Strider must be crouching randomly, part of it’s idle behavior instincts. But the sound persisted. I thought then that maybe the sound was applied regularly to Episode 2’s Strider because the Striders are always walking in Episode 2.
I peaked out to confirm this, and to my bewilderment, the Strider was not where I left it. I looked around wildly, until I spotted it, stomping around the jalopy, walking of it’s own free will, looking for me. Not looking very smartly, sure, but all the same, the damn thing was MOVING! The Strider, formerly useless as far as summonned NPC’s, was finally doing what everyone and their mother WANTED it to do!
Has anyone else realized, or recreated this? Because it’s a mind-screw for me!
