Something I discover that may improve Half-Life Source
« on: November 14, 2009, 10:31:43 PM »

Ok, here's the thing I discover.
This can be too obvious for some people, but I'm sure other people don't know this.

Ok, what I discover is, if ou put some skins like new blood or other sprites in HL2, they will afect HLS too.
For example:
Imagine that you put a new blood sprite in HL2.
When you play HLS, the sprite will be used too.

This is very cool because with this method, you can put things like new blood, new particle effects or new water effects in HLS!
This will give to HLS a HUGE improvement, because basically it changes the ambient in the game.
But theres some bad news:

You can't change all the sprites in HLS.
Basically, what you can gange in HLS is:
- Water effects,such as spashes;
- Particle effects, like sparks;
- Blood sprites and blood decals.
- EDIT: I managed to change the flashlight too!!!
- I will try to change the HLS skyboxes.

NOTE: consider this thread as a "subthread" of the post "If you don't do, I DO!"
