Description
It's small, it's cute, it shoots rockets and it explodes. No feeding required. Batteries included. Just spawn it under Entities/Fun + Games and you're ready to go.

Features
  • 1:10 model of a real Combine APC.
  • Realistic sounds!
  • Shoots rockets that follow you and your friends upon using (and/or damaging)!
  • Explodes if it runs out of rockets and/or is damaged badly enough.
  • Respawns! No need to get a new pet APC once your old one explodes!
  • Batteries included!
  • Realistic, small combine driver!

Known bugs and FAQ
  • Can you turn this into a little NPC? No
  • Can you make it move/follow you/help you? No. Perhaps in a different SENT. This one won't move and I have no plans to make a NPC.
  • Can you make little combine/strider dolls? No. As far as I'm concerned, ragdoll resizing isn't really possible. I haven't checked with GM13, but back then, it was impossible/a pain (I would have a combine driver ejected upon the explosion otherwise).
  • Shooting it is a bit weird! I know, but there's no way (without having an own model) to have a proper collision box. It's thought to be used as display mainly, the shoot-and-it-gets-angry part was added later as little gimnick.
  • It falls onto the floor when I use it! Yes. Whenever it's used, it will "drop to the floor" because moving it is a bit odd. Just make sure it has something to stay on (a table, a plate, whatever) then it should be fine. This is inteded behaviour.
  • I feel bad for the little combine guy! He knows what he did and he volunteered for this task.

For the life-sized drivable version, check out the Combine APC.

When a APC dies, it goes boom, following an animation of the front being blown off. Add that to the other APC, dont use ragdolls, all is done, the work is, making another APC that small, but having to find the way it moves and when it should shoot/target system, i would take the time to think about it, and i dont care if you say no or yes to make this, but an idea is an idea. And sometimes they might work 100% more than you think.

Ragdolls are a complete different league than just resizing a model and adding a use trigger (which is pretty much 80% of this SENT). I've been away from GMod modding for three years but I doubt much has changed; without a new model/ragdoll/proper animations, this isn't going to happen at all.

It would be cute for five minutes, compared to hours that would need to be invested. Definitely a bad payoff.

It could me worth it, to bring back some thing that was three years ago and making it better, could work. If you do make it happen just change the name a bit and say that its new and stuff. You could try to make it move around, RC death cages are real so it could have a target system, it could be worth it, if you made the rocket come out and everything els, this is possible, you have to look it up on mod building and or edits to the APC.

It might be possible, and I thought about it back when I made this three years ago, but it wouldn't be worth the effort.

So no as in "No i cant do that" or no as in "No i just dont want to"?
