In January of 2008, I posted news of the release of my Knife Replacement Pack. Upon posting the news, I received a mod idea/request from Windebieste to make "exploding spider monkeys chase players around and blow them to bits." The idea was too funny not to make. It took a while for me to get around to it (and I forgot about it for a while), but one year later I decided to take the idea and make it into a mod. I initially replaced all the grenades with AvP2's monkey model (with special attention to the spider mines), but the mod grew to include more animal-related projectiles such as birds, fish, and a few extras. There was no logic as to why predators use fish in this mod, or why marines and corps can shoot monkeys and birds at people. I randomly tried replacing projectiles with animal models. If it looked funny and wasn't too big (like a giant shark in the player's hands) I kept it. I even included some random audio stuff related around the monkey theme. The mod is entirely client side, and will thus function like normal AvP2 with the changes listed below. This mod should probably be named as something else which makes reference to all the animal changes in the mod, but the monkeys are the focal point. Therefore, Exploding Monkeys Mod it is. Moreover, this mod is the dumbest mod I have ever made, but it is certainly hilarious to see the new projectiles and hear the new sound effects in action. Hope you enjoy it!

2) General Info:

Zip Contents: Exploding_Monkeys.rez, Readme (What you are reading)

Version: 1.0
New Textures: Yes
New Sounds: Yes
New Models: Yes

Known Bugs: None at all. However, the new predator disc and hotbombs won't appear in first person view, just third person view. This is not a bug. If new models were introduced into first person view, the client side feature of these weapons would be lost. Solution? Get your AvP2 game hooked up with the third-person view mod (details on how-to are available at my website).
(If you find any, please tell me)

3) Construction Info:

Tools Used: DEdit, ModelEdit, Paint Shop Pro 12, All Sound Recorder XP/All Sound Editor, and dBpowerAMP.

Base: Built from scratch using AvP2's default files, except for the conversion and editing of the resources below.

Resources: A few models and base textures from NOLF1 were used, but they were modified in some form or another.

Construction Time: On and off for about two to three months. But it really took roughly one week to make (including testing).

Date Built: 04/26/2009                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         4) Mod Description:

   2) Proximity grenade replaced with a dark red monkey.
