Half-Life has:

- Pushable crates (Don't know if this is possible)
- Breakable glass, wood, etc (func_breakable is possible)
- Rotating doors (func_door_rotating)
- Ladders (with entity, NOT surfaceparm)
- Use key to interact with environment and NPCs (possible)
- Manually activated buttons
- Switchable beams, kill fields, etc
- Scripted NPCs
- An alien critter weapon
- Laser guided RPGs
- Locational damage

If Udi wants his 'SOF2 remake' to happen we'll need these important 'hl' features to make a game more lively than a dull world of item pickups and convenient pre-opened doors (See: Gore)

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

Quake2 has barrels you can push around, the same logic may work in Q3 too.

fromhell...

If you want inspiration...take a look at the RTCW and the ET source codes.  Most of those little gem's are in a q3-based package already Wink

ANDDDDDD word on the street is...ET and/or RTCW will be gpl'd with idTech 4.

But I hate the feel of those games. It's like q3, but on a linear "do this" rail.

ET source code has the same structure of q3 sources and has also a bit ( or not ) of OSP code inside.

Tremulous (among others) has code for a "func_door_rotating" entity.  I will look into porting it to plain ioquake3.

I was successful in getting the Tremulous func_door_rotating code working Cheesy

I'll post a patch and demo map shortly...
