+UPDATE+

1. Added download for WiP
2. Replaced sounds for gauss gun firing
3. Replaced sounds for gauss gun charging
4. Small changes to texture

So now you can give BRDM-2 a test run. Give it shot and tell me what you think, it's handling might take some getting used to.

Thanks to Markworth for the model, scripting, and motor sounds.

A retexture for Markworth's APC Buggy mod
http://gamebanana.com/skins/81680

This retexture turns this nondescript APC into a BRDM-2/BTR-70 hybrid. It's not the best work, but a good texture can only take such a low quality model so far.

There will be other two variants as well, one with camouflage paint job and another with decorative decals.

The sound and projectile of the gauss gun will also be changed to be more like an autocannon.

Could someone help me find the texture files for the gauss gun's beam? I can't seem to find it, even after extracting the whole texture directory.

Todos

Replacement gauss gun projectiles.

    There's a good number of unused content in the game files, however most of significance was cut to save space. You can look up a bunch of stuff on the Overwiki.

    Also good luck replacing the gauss gun projectiles, they're hard-wired in.
    You'd need a completely new .pcf system for that to work.
    So it's not a texture, but a pfc? Bear in mind I'm just trying to remove that electrical bolt that shoots out, since other than that the gauss gun already shoots regular looking tracers.

    Yeah you'll have to modify the very particle system, which I have no idea how to do.

    If it were easy I'm sure someone would have done it by now.

    so theres some beta files on hl2?

    I guess so, considering I found the apc texture still in there. I haven't done much snooping around myself, so I'm not sure how much is in there. But so far I've found some beta sounds though, like sounds from a tank.

    where did you find the beta apc texture?
    I just extracted the "hl2_misc_textures_dir" .vpk in my game directory using GCFscape.
