You will learn how to make an APC that shoots you...

Another old tutorial, another update... I begin to believe that I like doing tutorials after all...

Hey everyone, 3rd tutorial with a nice enemy : the Combine Car (APC)...
It's really easy and really fast... Ready ??

START 

1. First, create the setting where your APC will be.

2. Place a prop_vehicle_apc and change it's properties : 
  • Name : apc
  • World Model : combine_apc.mdl
  • Vehicle Script File : scripts/vehicles/apc_npc.txt
3. Place a npc_apcdriver just above the APC, and change it's properties :
  • Sleep State : Waiting for PVS
  • Vehicle to drive : apc
4. That's all !! Even if the car won't move, it will shoots you and you will be able to destroy it...

END

Notes :
  • Some steps have their own screenshots, don't forget to look at them
  • I hope that you have learn something and that it was not so hard to understand
  • Thanks for reading !!

Something like func_dustcloud, but not so blocky, or _big_ func_dustmotes but to choose the sprite of the fog. Fog like this And... i tried to make this type fog and the sky bugged.. Can you make a tutorial for this type of fogs?

    Hmmmm... I think it's a func_dustcloud with huge sprites (but not only 1 func_dustcouds, but severals)... I don't know how to do this BUT I will try to do it...

    And yes, I have create a thread to know how to create APC like this (maybe there is 3 weeks)... Nobody know how to do it, so I "promise" that I will do a tutorial on it... Here it is (I wanted to finish my map before write the tutorial)...

    But it's not a part of my map, I always do a little map for the tutorial...

    PS : Rate please !!

    EDIT : I have found a good entity for this type of FOG (it's not a func_dustcloud), I will write the tutorial shortly...
