News from the Discord (v05 features)
« on: June 27, 2020, 01:43:02 AM »
AnOldLady has been posting frequent updates on the discord about the next BSMOD update v05 and its progress. I know they are not super active here so I figured I would share the progress. Join the discord here: https://discordapp.com/invite/eBqezeR

The next update is focused around the BSMOD arsenal, as well as the custom weapon system, including melee weapons and custom explosives!

If you are unfamiliar with SMOD, the custom weapon system was pretty robust and allowed you to create your own weapons from scratch to add to the game or you could port in existing weapons from other source games like Day of Defeat or Counter Strike Source (including the thousands of skins available on sites like FPSBanana).

Here are some sneak peeks that have been posted of the custom weapon scripts:

Burst fire mode is now working.
Fire modes have been restricted to automatic weapons only.

Magazines will now be dropped on the ground during reloads.
Here is an example video of the system in action:

Added a bulletcount next to shotcount
BulletCount = how many bullets to fire out. eg. Shotgun
ShotCount = how many bullets taken out from the magazine. eg. for double barrel shotguns or something

Added Silencer option. Basically it wont alert NPCs if you shoot

All the viewmodel activities supported so far, for you animators out there.

And last but not least, the glorious return of the SMOD SVD sniper rifle:

Sporting the classic 2x - 8x scope you all know and love.

Also has supported weapon chambering

It is also sporting a new upgrade, check it out:

There is also a cvar "sm_weapon_svd_music 1" for cinematic ranged shots.
When enabled:
No bullet drop
Bullet travels slower
Plays music of your choice as defined in the Script Sound. (Yes you can use mp3s)

Sorry, more news and updates from the discord development:

double tap "+use" on citizens to outline them and know their location wherever they are. double tap "use" again to disable the green outlines.

Gameinfo.txt has been updated so you no longer have to copy+paste maps into BSMOD directory. Just need to make sure you have ep2, ep1, lost coast and hl2 installed.

Shove now detects ledges. NPCs will fall off them now if the height isnt too high. If the fall height is un-survivable, NPCs will die immediately.

Running kick now adds additional shove distance

NPCs can now take fall damage based on height.
Fall damage is NOT tied to shove, therefore NPC's can take fall damage anywhere.

Three new sets of animations are added:
-Landing "softly"
-Landing "hardly"

Stunstick new ability: can hack robotics (turrets, manhacks, scanners, etc.)

Scanners receive a new ability. Flash!
Zombies unaffected.

Gordon now has grabbity gloves when unarmed.

Double-tap drop weapon (subject to change) while unarmed to grab weapons/items from a distance.

Custom weapon scripts have been-re-written in this upcoming update.
Custom weapon scripts support your basic shotgun, autoshotgun, semi auto, burst and single shot weapons
Lasers/Entity throwers is NOT SUPPORTED yet.
current supported elements:


Once all the bugs has been squished, the first wave would be released

Mapadd implementation is now in the game.

currently supported mapadd elements:
instant_trig (with traceboxes so you can actually see)
spawning props
spawning npcs
physgun for building (wip)
location getter
entity block runners

mapadd is built for portability in mind
so yes, you can actually port mapadds from smod to bsmod (however there is small changes you need to make which will be documented)

these are the new mapadd trigger radius'

Can be seen with cvar sm_mapadd_show_triggerbounds
for debugging purposes.

in the mapadd script:

Code: [Select]
    "timer" "0.1"
    "label" "bsmod_stuffs"
    "color" "0 255 0"

under Keyvalues, add "Color" "R G B" to set your own trigger bounds colour.

-Kar98k NPC accuracy fixed
-sm_npc_disarm_chance added
-MP5 ironsight animation fixed, but its still not aligned properly
-Equipped stunstick now damages the player if he's underwater
-npc_floor_turret can now be destroyed on taking too much damage
-Gordon Kick physics reverted back
-Moved gordon kick hit-trace slightly lower of crosshair
like in smod
-Zombie torso now leak blood everywhere they go
-Added new sound for zombie transform
-Shoved into wall stun-lock no longer a thing(edited)
-Tons of mapadd fixes
-More mapadd fixes
-Glorious airboat kick
-Weapons dropped no longer refills magazines
-Gave Pistol animations to combine, AR2/Shotgun to metrocops
-Improved gordon kick detection
-Cleaned up zombie conversion code
-NPCs will drop their weapons before converting into a zombie now (should have done this long ago)
-Lots of zombie conversion fixes

First Episode 2 mapadd:

-Touched up npc_headcrabs ability to convert other NPC's into zombies.

Classic headcrab will turn NPC's into zombies, or zombine if the npc is a npc_combine_s.

Fast headcrabs will make fast zombies.

Black (poison) Headcrabs can pounce on enemies and pin them down. Think hunter from L4D.

You can save your allies during these conversions by killing the headcrab.
If your friend has been converted into a zombie, make sure to kill the headcrab. They work just like regular zombies, killing the body releases the headcrab, letting it find a new victim.

(animations subject to change)

-Rollermines can be hacked by stunstick
-Added customisable npc damage for custom weapon script
-If undefined, NPC will do 85% of player damage

-Added these to skill.cfg:

-Added spawn for: npc_antlion_worker
                : npc_antlionguardian
                : npc_combine_e
                : npc_combine_p
                : npc_combine_sg
-Released zombie dead crabs are now server ragdolls
-Mapadd/Hammer ragdolls can now be gibbed/bleed
-Zombie Torso and Legs can now be gibbed
-Zombie Torso will get booted away when kicked

Very impressive :D! I especially liked the fact that headcrabs can turn a human into a zombie.
