This pack is about a little fixing and tweaking for Black Mesa - difficulty balancing and realism/logic.

Changes: - You can kill barnacles with 3 crowbar hits - You can't kill a soldier with 1 magnum shot anymore (excluding headshot and easy difficulty) - Energy weapons are more usefull now, but not too strong - Hivehand isn't stronger than crowbar anymore (same) - More logical ammunition (example: you only get 5 bolts from a clip now instead of 10) - Zombies have now the same health as their human counterparts - Damage and health are way fairer and more realistic - Overall game is a little bit easier - etc. Items: - Battery - 15 to 20 - Healthkit - 25 to 30 Player weapon damage: - Crowbar - 10 to 12 - Magnum - 50 to 45 - Shotgun (buckshot) - 6 to 5 - MP5 grenade - 100 to 90 - Rocket - 125 to 150 - Bolt - 75 to 70 - Energy (Gluon) - 15 to 20 - Hornet - 13 to 12 - Tau single shot - 20 to 25 - Tau fully loaded shot - 200 to 249 Enemy attack/weapon damage: - 9mm (guard - pistol; soldier - mp5) - 4 to 3 - Soldier melee - 20 to 15 - Zombie double slash - 30 to 25 - Bullsquid whip - 35 to 30 - Bullsquid spit amount - 9 to 8 - Gargantua melee - 30 to 35 - TOW - 150 to 75 (WAY too high!) - Mines - 25 to 50 (WAY too low!) - Mortar - 15 to 20 - Sniper - 20 to 40 (WAY too low!) Health: - Headcrab - 10 to 12 - Scientist - 35 to 40 - Guard - 40 to 45 - Assassin - 50 to 45 - Vortigaunt - 38 to 45 (WAY too low!) - Zombie (Guard) - 50 to 45 - Houndeye - 50 to 40 (WAY too high!) - Alien Grunt - 90 to 80 - Alien Controller - 60 to 55 - Ichthyosaur - 100 to 150 (WAY too low!) - LAV - 200 to 250 Max. ammo (overall): - 9mm - 150 to 200 (WAY too low!) - Magnum - 18 to 24 - Shotgun - 64 to 72 - MP5 grenade - 3 to 5 - Rockets - 5 to 4 - Bolts - 10 to 15 (WAY too low!) Max. ammo (clips): - MP5 - 30 to 35 Max. ammo (pickups): - Magnum - 12 to 6 (WAY too high!) - MP5 - 30 to 35 - Shotgun - 8 to 12 (too low!) - Bolts - 10 to 5 (illogical!)

    Minimum differences. The game is still kinda easy.

    P.S. Change the MP5 mag to 30, damn it. There is no 35-round magazines in the real life.

    I hope you're kidding, the overall game is easier with this... some low health values were a joke on the other hand.

    I mean from the player perspective. It would make more sense to call this an extreme difficulty setting more than a realism.

    That's completely wrong. Of all attack/health changes, I made more than 1/3 of the enemies attacks/health stronger.

    If I wanted to make the game easier, why wouldn't I just play normal or easy instead of hard?
