May 26th all over again
« on: March 12, 2013, 07:22:52 PM »
Fellow community, Smod is in danger once again.

http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/02/20/steampipe-valve/?ns_campaign=article-feed&ns_mchannel=ref&ns_source=steam&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0

Most multiplayer games are moving to SteamPipe. This means you can't mount CSS and HL2DM anymore. Luckily, Smod still works if you don't mount them, but CSS is almost essential for Smod.

Right now an easy workaround would be to copy CSS materials and models to the Smod folder. Make a backup of your mod before doing so.

Updates will be posted here. Please contribute if you have anything that could help.

We must not let Smod die again.

God... This is just more evidence that Valve either dont give a shit about the mod community they spawned, or they down right hate us...

This is just.. Why?! To give us faster load times? If your PC is 10 years old it would benefit from this, no one else who has even a medium PC today (like me) has slow loading times...
This is just outright stupid... Just like may 26th  :'(

Just when you think the worst is over...

I hope that this won't kill the modding community

UPDATE: Alvaol told me an awesome idea that I want to share here, because he cant right now.

If you dont want to mess things up in your SMOD (Cs:s textures replacing HL2 textures, too much folders in ur SMOD folder etc.) do this:

copy all Cs:s models, textures and sounds and paste them into a SMOD folder wich was specifically made to "carry" this content, then mount your SMOD to this SMOD folder in addcontents.txt and you are finished.

CL, over and out.

Check my topic out, I have a likely fix that'll effectively "future-proof" SMOD from any more updates like this.

What year was that may 26 dooms day for hl2 modders?

Good thing there are ways to keep it working as posted above but
As for me I think I just gotta make a special SMOD standlone I've always wanted to do so I can play smod forever without steam's pesky resource hog and sneaky annoying updates. I won't discuss that further of course.
I'm so in-love to SMOD...PERIOD!
