How about model/sound replacement like Sven?
« on: June 07, 2005, 08:53:21 PM »

I had this idea that you could include the model/sound replacement features of Sven Coop. This would be cool for mappers, nd might turn HL:E into some sort of SC SP, but a lot better.

I think Matt's already started coding that.

Oh, and don't forget, make the tau cannon beam sprite seperate from the rpg smoke sprite!  That way people can have custom energy beams without making rocket launchers have strange-coloured smoke. :)

I think this would lag though, as to do this per-map wouldn't you have to move all that stuff server-side? So every time you fired your gun you'd have to wait for the server to tell you there was a bang and a flash  :-\

It can be done on the client, and anyway HL:E is a SP mod, so it wouldnt matter anyway.

Though I don't think there's any reason why HL:E couldn't also be multiplayer; but it would simply be an enhanced half-life deathmatch with better physics and effects.  There was talk of doing a Black Mesa versus Soldiers type game-mode thing, a bit like Opposing Force Capture the Flag without the flag, but it was just hypothetical.  You never know, could happen after HL:E singleplayer is done, but I think everyone's just thinking about singleplayer at the moment.  But as far as I know, nothing has actually 'broken' multiplayer.
