Title: BSMOD v0.40 DOWNLOAD + INSTALL GUIDE + FAQ
Post by: BIZ on May 20, 2020, 05:19:57 AM
It looks like ANOldLady released a new version of their SMOD remake on Source 2013. Surprised no one is discussing. You can download and check it out here:

BSMOD v0.40a Stable DOWNLAD - last update: 10/22/20
https://www.mediafire.com/file/d4feki2xv9vv8lt/BSMOD_v040a_Stable.zip/file

https://drive.google.com/file/d/17qSG58TvYfGEC0KMIf34UB7NvUc3CvzS/view?usp=sharing

NOTE: This is a Pre-Alpha. It has bugs. It has crashes. So does SMOD. Things will get ironed out in time.

Don't use BSMOD with SMOD Standalone. Drop it into sourcemods folder instead.

SMOD seems to have a way of pulling us back to it. This is fantastic work, it looks really promising.

Do NOT use SMOD Standalone with BSMOD. Drop it to your sourcemods folder like old times, and extract HL2/Ep1/Ep2 maps into the bsmod map folder.

Hello, I know that the mod is in pre-alpha so I want to report that the modification takes off at 1) When you destroy the helicopter 2) When you see the acid antlion (I don't remember exactly what it is called) Also, when you can get stuck in the wall\floor when you perform "Glory Kills". I hope that I did not write this in vain.

v40a_stable has been released. Check first post.

Here are AnOldLady's notes:
Code: [Select]
-All map transitions should stop crashing now
-QOL to player such as holster and kicking
-Added ragdoll bleed and other new blood effects
-Other changes I can't remember
-Actually I don't see why it will crash anymore. But PM me if you do crash


They indicate that the next update will be in a revamp of the custom weapons system.

I noticed that when you throw any weapon (w_model) at an NPC, it (NPC) takes damage. We could see similar things in Half-Life 2 and episodes. Maybe you should make it so that when you throw items at NPCs, they are dealt damage? Then it will be a kind of dynamic system of interaction with surrounding objects.
