_§_ZaPwinder v2.2_§_ --------------------------------------------------------------- by Team ZaP. (Zoxin0 And Doompig444) ZaPwinder info: At last, this highly anticipated(I hope xD) mod has been released. This is ZaPwinder v2.2. This new version includes several new updates from v0.8. Read this readme carefully, and treat it as a field guide to learn about all the new weapons and vehicles in this mod that you'll need to know about to get the most out of this mod. ------------doompig444's Section of the mod aka "The Superior Section" xD-------------- Models: Most of the models in ZaPwinder have been edited severely. All of them were created by me. These models include: -MA5B IWCS Assault Rifle remodeled into MA5C PWCS Assault Rifle* -Sniper Rifle remodeled into Combative Scoped Rifle system. -Shotgun remodeled into Heavy Shotgun. -Pistol remodeled into Heavy Magnum -Plasma Pistol remodeled into Energy Sword -v2.2 MODELS UPDATE- -Cyborg model - Mjolnir Mark 5.2 "Epsilon" permutation. This new armor's shields can take more punishment than the Mark 5, but forces the wearer to have less health to wear it. 110 units of shields, 30 units of health. Increased jump height. Fall-damage resistant. This is where it's at. The model has enhancements such as longer elbow, shoulder, and knee pads. These enhancements were done by me. I've also made a custom skin, featuring the UNSC logo on his back. I highly recommend you play as a White spartan in Slayer, or else it's hard to see the logo. Some minor bump mapping is also added, along with a cooler-looking chestplate and altered backplate. -UNSC AA Gun model - A remodel and reskin of the Covenant Gun Turret by me. Think "Warthog turret" but stronger. Reticle is also by me. -UNSC Falcon - The banshee has been remodeled into a human jet. The model is, of course, by me. The modding is by me as well. New enhancements - Kamikaze feature. When nearby some enemies, use the right mouse button to detonate. This detonation can damage nearby enemies, as well as yourself. The Falcon can also go into autopilot and reverse thrust modes, though they aren't recommended. IMPORTANT - HOW TO PILOT THE FALCON -Press the jump button to fly up, crouch button to fly down. -To activate autopilot, tap the spacebar 3 times, then the "w" key 3 times. You should now be slowly drifting forward but gradually increasing speed. -To use the reverse thrust, hold down the left mouse button then tilt the nose of the Falcon upwards. -END OF V2.2 MODELS UPDATE- Weapon Performance Modifications: -MA5C PWCS Assault Rifle* has a 48 round clip, highly increased accuracy, decreased damage, relative melee damage**, and a built-in 2x scope. -Combative Scoped Rifle System has decreased starting ammunition, a moderate recoil when fired, decreased rate of fire, relative melee damage**, and increased damage***. -Heavy Shotgun has 1 round clip, 12 round maximum ammunition, decreased bullet spread, increased damage, heavy recoil, relative melee damage**, and increased amount of projectiles fired. -Heavy Magnum has decreased rate of fire, decreased maximum ammunition, 6 round clip, moderate recoil, heavily increased damage, no longer has a scope, and relative melee damage**. -Energy Sword has 3 "lunges" before overcharge, 2 lunge kill, and 1 melee kill. This sword has also been given a stun that will disable you from moving for about 2 or 3 seconds, yet it has quite a nice melee hit also, so you may ahve to choose between beating or shooting. Animation Modifications: Neither me or Zoxin have created any of the 3 animations used in this mod. The Assault Rifle animations are by, I believe(correct me if I'm wrong!), FlamingRain. The Pistol animations are the ever popular animations by [ZMT]Leet and CaD. The Sniper Rifle anims are from TAZZ, I believe/hope. Skins: I only made some of the skins in here. Mainly, it's the Assault Rifle skin, which used to be a fail skin until I realized it looked pretty good with the model I made. I also made the shotgun skin(darkened with snow on it =D). The Energy Sword reticle is custom made by me, with help from Wolf Grave for placement and shape. The Sniper Rifle skin is by Zoxin and edited by me to my taste. Also, Halo 2 Team's biped skin has been used, over the shaders. I also changed the visor into a grey shade. And based on an idea from Zoxin, I made the shaders for the biped shield blu-ish. -v2.2 SKINS UPDATE- All the new weapons and the new cyborg model have skins implemented as well. Also, most of the map has been retextured for a darker, gloomier feel. The walls in the bases are darker. Also, the decals on the walls have been revamped a bit. For example, Red team's decals says RED on them. The little colored arrows on the ground have also been labeled according to color. The ground is darker. The snow walls are slightly more detailed, but it has a slight issue with tiling on some parts. It's mainly pretty hard to see though.These texture revamps are all by me, of course. -END OF v2.2 SKINS UPDATE- *No, this is not a real gun in the Halo Universe, if you think it sounds like one. Supposedly it's just a modified MA5C =). **Relative melee damage is melee damage by the size of the gun. So the bigger the gun the stronger the melee will be =). ***Sniper's increased damage is still 2 bodyshot, 1 headshot kills, but if you bodyshot once it will do more damage, so it'll take less shots to finish 'em off with a secondary weapon. Notes: -Because plasma pistol isn't placed in Sidewinder, I replaced the plasma rifle with the plasma pistol to get the sword onto the map. -I pulled back the FP camera to make the sword look better. You now see more of the weapon because the FP camera is moved back slightly. -v2.2 MISCELLANEOUS UPDATES- -The UI has been modified a bit. Same with the string entries. When you pick up the energy sword, it actually says "picked up an energy sword" rather than plasma pistol. Other strings have been changed into the appropriate weapon names. The actual UI is modified. When you host a game, it says "Hosting game" rather than "Starting network server". There are other minor UI modifications such as those, just check 'em out yourself. -END OF v2.2 MISCELLANEOUS UPDATES- ----------------------------End of doompig44's portion of readme----------------------- _§_Zoxin's Area_§_ Description: This mod by Doompig and I will change your sidewinder map in a very "leet" manner. It has been skinned and given new placements by me. These include: a banshee and warthogs in the middle of the map, pistols and a health pack in the middle of the map along with the vehicles added, turrets added to the ledge underneath the base, shotguns and sniper rifles added to the tunnel ledges leading from underground tunnel to other team underground tunnel (seen clearly eventually), and rocket launchers placed in between the two posts in the underground tunnels at both bases on the slanted incline. Newly skinned things by me include: the snow hog, the ice ghost, the frozen turret, the arctic banshee (already on halofiles for download), and the winter scorpion. The weapons skinned by me include the sniper rifle, and the rocket launcher. My work has also been shown with the transparent hands from one of my halofiles additions, transparent hands from transparent gulch! As normal, these hands will turn yellow when you are completely camoed. _INSTALLATION_ BACKUP YOU ORIGINAL SIDEWINDER.MAP BEFORE STARTING THE INSTALLATION.

ZaP is simply "Zoxin and Pig", not the sound electricity supposedly makes xD. If you enjoyed this mod, stay tuned for out next mods. They will all have ZaP in them, such as ZaPGulch or ZaP-finity. This doesn't mean we will ALWAYS make stuff together; Zoxin will still make his independent skins, which might be used in a ZaP project, and I will carry on making my independent skins and maps.I'd say, we make a fine team. -¥-doompig444 and Zoxin-¥- For feedback or questions contact us at either: firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com Filefront Member Name: Zoxin0 Filefront Member Name: thescorcher _LEGAL INFORMATION_ If you put this file under your own name that isn't mine or doompig's, there may be consiquences!
