is it possible to filter damage based on the weapon used in half life 2?

i messed around with the filter_damage_type entity and it doesn't specify by weapon type, only damage type, and interestingly enough, neither the shotgun nor the crossbow outputs bullet damage.

Wrong thread. And no, I don't think you can do that.

one rather obvious (to me) nit to pick: neither the shotgun nor the crossbow actually fire bullets. shotguns fire either pellets or slugs, and crossbows fire bolts.

in real life sure, but the relative difference between the smg and the shotgun programming wise are not that different.

true, but i'm guessing their brains went through the same sort of nitpicky process that mine did, and that's why the damagefilters don't work as you'd expect.

honestly, the crossbow should have been designed to deal piercing damage. i wonder if that can be modified in code...

Take a look at the top trim where shadow is cast a little. I saw there some of that shitty grainy-edge thing Source does with projected shadows, which is not happening when it's lightmapped. Really, it's obvious. If not, then it's broken lightmap shadows.. which I doubt.

Also, fading: http://steamcommunity.com/id/bluecheeta ... 793800710/?


Regardless, you could easily get lightmapped shadows from that grate texture. All you have to do is turn the brush they're applied to in to a model and put the model in the lights.rad file to cast texture shadows. I used this method with an ivy texture and it looked awesome.

Of course, it won't cast accurate shadows on other models like with projected textures or the cascaded shadow system that the City17 mod uses.

Found some old screens from my former map for Ivans Secrets... don't know if they were released yet.

kinda sorta, There are 32 different damage types in source. Of them there's DMG_BULLET, and there's DMG_BUCKSHOT, which is commented as "not quite a bullet. Little, rounder, different." in the code.

Some enemies take reduced damage from bullets while taking extra damage from pellet. Also, Zombies take reduced damage from buckshot.

For the curious: The crossbow does bullet damage, but also has the "never gib" modifier.

Here's a map-project I was working first when I started working at No More Room In Hell team in 2009 (the new team with new start). This map was/is actually "fully playable" despite few gamemode specific entities, but I didn't think it was up to quality, so I kind of dumped it. I might raise it from the dead by remaking it, as it had nice gameplay and tons of various areas to go and survive zombies in. Map's name is "Quarantine", which makes sense more if you played the map, as the area is restricted from elsewhere with fences and walls with spotlights to point to playable area, like it was being watched. Enough blabber, here are few screenshots:

No, that map was never released anywhere (except assets/content, that's all existing in NMRiH only).

Hey all,

I've released the source .vmf for a wip Half-Life 2 single player level called "Factory" that is around a year old. It might be useful to some new level designers but there isn't really much there for advanced mappers.
Video discussing the map:
