Also, a version of the mod converted to work as a typical HL2 Steam mod has been made. See below for details.
A very special holiday present to the BSNOOCH community.
I stated in the past I had no intention of making a new version of Redux, but with SMOD Standalone being increasingly refined, among other reasons, I felt motivated to deliver a final official version of this mod 5 years to the day of its last major release.
Redux Final was rebuilt from scratch using SMOD Standalone to bring you the most solid version of Redux ever that expands upon the original SMOD's content and gameplay. This version loads and overrides SMOD40a's content to cut down on filesize and allows some mods built for SMOD40 to be used without issue in Redux. Many custom models were replaced with ones edited from Valve's own games and HL2 Survivor to make this version a bit more than just a GameBanana compilation mod.
This is going to be my final SMOD release. I'll of course stick around BSNOOCH, I might do other Source engine releases here and may still help out on projects like Goldenarms. I already kinda pulled a Fakefactory the first time I came back, so if I'm going to stop making SMOD releases now, I want it to be on a good note.
The official site won't be updated as I no long have the means, and I left the steam group a long time ago due to personal reasons (if whoever ended up with its control reads this, sorry for leaving like I did. hope you understand!). So this is a BSNOOCH.com exclusive release and I would prefer if this did not get reposted elsewhere.
If you're interested in older Redux versions, you can find downloads of versions 8, 7, 6, and 5 HERE
. Note that they need fixing to work with SMOD Standalone. Check the SMOD Standalone topic's first page for more info.REQUIREMENTS:
You should have installed:
Source SDK 2006 BaseSMOD Standalone 0.65 or higher
(ONLY FOR STANDALONE VERSION)Features:
-16 custom weapons, all carefully picked for fun factor, balance, and looks. From old Redux standbys like the OICW, Garand Rifle, and Spike Grenade to new weapons like the Golden Colts, Shredder, and the Firework Grenade.
-SMOD Menu System 3: A easy to use in-game menu for SMOD's settings. No messing with clumsy presets. Mix and match settings to how you want your SMOD. The mod's configs have been crafted in a way that leaves autoexec.cfg completely to you for your custom settings.
-Battle Maps: A revamped survival mode with 10 maps converted from Half-Life 2: Survivor. Survive for 7 minutes against a endless wave of increasingly difficult enemies. Earn money and get special rewards by killing enemies.
-The Bullsquid, Zombine, and Zombie2 return, along with the new Combine Commando: A faster soldier with a unique melee attack.
-Gordon Freeman model replaced with a enhanced version of HL2 Survivor's Gordon Freeman, as well as the usual unique models added for the Combine Ace and Zombie2.
-Revamped HL2 maps based on the Ultimate Campaign addon with a number of fixes and tweaks for better pacing, as well as new content.
-Graphics Improvements: Tweaked bullet time effects, world models that are more consistent with the view meshes, which have a number of fixes themselves. HEV Suit is now consistent across the player, kick mesh, and prop. New menu backgrounds.
-Sound Changes: Expanded Combine VO, New Bullet Time sounds, music, various sound fixes.
-Ease of use/quality of life changes: Default key bindings for SMOD's new features, HUD hints for SMOD features added into the HL2 campaign.
-Retro 2006 style: No phong shaders, no episodic models.

1: Place the SMOD Standalone installer you downloaded into your SourceMods folder for Steam. For most people, the path will be C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\
If you already have SMOD Standalone installed and working, you can skip this.NOTE: Make sure you have Half-Life 2 and Source SDK 2006 Base installed onto the same drive as your sourcemods folder! Otherwise the Standalone install will not complete correctly and Standalone nor Redux will not work properly!
2: Once SMOD Standalone is properly installed, extract the SMODRedux_Final
folder (NOT the contents of said folder) to SourceMods\Smod Standalone\mods\
3: If SMOD Redux is installed properly, the SMOD Standalone launcher menu should list SMODRedux_Final
or SMOD REDUX - Final
. Click it to launch SMOD Redux.DOWNLOADSDOWNLOAD SMOD REDUX - FINAL 1.3DOWNLOAD SMOD REDUX - FINAL 1.2 (OUTDATED)DOWNLOAD SMOD REDUX - FINAL 1.1 (OUTDATED)DOWNLOAD SMOD REDUX - FINAL 1.0 (OUTDATED)SMOD REDUX FINAL - 1.3 STEAMMOD
This version of SMOD Redux - FINAL has been converted to work as a typical HL2 Steam mod. It is intended for people who cannot get SMOD Standalone to run or do not wish to use SMOD Standalone. You do not need a prior install of SMOD for this version.
The only difference between this and the Standalone version is that all LUA-based code has been removed from the maps. This is because updates with Valve's SteamPipe system for Half-Life 2 and other games have effectively broken SMOD's LUA code for unknown reasons. Due to this, the Steam version does not include the Battle maps ported from Half-Life 2: Survivor, as there was no satisfying way of mimicking the AI spawning and general behavior in regular mapadd code. Some minor bits of LUA from the HL2 campaign were also removed due to this issue, but these by and large did not affect gameplay. You'll still miss a few changes and the special date events though.
Also, this is NOT compatible with SMOD Standalone and you will have issues if you use this version of the mod alongside it. Download the SMOD Standalone version of Redux for that instead.DOWNLOAD SMOD REDUX - FINAL 1.3 STEAMMOD
