this is a collection of various fragments of ideas I've had. at least, the ones that were workable enough to even bother trying out, and interesting enough to bother sharing. a couple of these have been posted on the pfhorums in various threads at one time or another. none of these are full maps, and some aren't even finished. take them for what they are.
note: these have all been tested in aleph 1.0b4. some (most?) of them probably work in older versions, but I haven't bothered to go back and check.
this package contains:
an instagib mod, for those who are into that sort of thing. I wrote this a while ago mainly as an exercise to teach myself lua for aleph.
note: it occurs to me that people who don't play other FPSs might not know what "instagib" means, so I'll be more specific about what this script actually does:
the script also turns the secondary trigger into a zoom function, and prevents items from appearing on maps just to make things cleaner.
I also have the script prevent players from having any oxygen and therefore swimming. this is not part of a traditional instagib setup, I put it in purely because I didn't want people hiding underwater. there are alternatives, but they either involve using a physics model or a crapload of lua hackery and I wanted to keep this simple.
This is a plugin that adds scuba sound effects (breathing & occasional bubbles) when under water. It doesn't use any lua or sacrifice any stock marathon sounds, so it should be compatible with pretty much anything.
note1: stay underwater for at least 45 seconds to get the full effect.
note2: I got the samples from pond5.com, I didn't record them myself.
note3: there are two known bugs: if you use the 'underwater' sfx in your map as an ambient sound you'll get the breathing along with it, and the bubbles sound happens in vacuum levels. I'll release another version if I can figure out how to get around these.
made the breathing sound a hair louder
