"Terminator grade pipebombs, approved by Kyle Reese."
This is something I've been wanting to do for a couple of year but never got around to. I think the original pipebomb, which was done for L4D1 was one of those weapon models that really needed a makeover. I never even knew if it was made of metal or PVC. Well, now it's definitely made of metal. :)
For this mod, the pipebomb was remodeled completely from scratch, then textured in PBR and then tweaked for L4D2. The shape and pieces it's almost the same, but I added a few extra details and tried to improve it to the best of my capabilities.
Thanks to Ellie this release also includes "Mod a Mod" support, meaning you can make a mod that changes the textures of this one. And in fact I already did one (included in download), that adds Ellie's RNG wizardry, allowing the model to spawn with different textures for the battery, tape, wires and trigger button.
If you install the optional RNG VPK file you get 8 different color presets (randomized once per level), including:
- 4 different 9v batteries: Eastern Power, Duracell, Energizer & Eveready - 3 different tape colors: Black, Blue & Red - 3 different trigger button colors: Yellow, Red, & Green - Several wire color combinations
