If you want a lil Half Life 2 in your Quake 4 coffee this morning, then I have the perfect blend for you, Strombine. In this single player map you get Strogg snipers that play a lot like the Combines in HL2, thus the name, Strombine. They have that nice sniper laser and when they can't see you, they even shoot random physics objects around you. Not only that, there are also some item crates that open up and give you some ammo.

        Installation : Put the pk4 in a new subfolder under your Quake4 install directory.
                       Name it strombine or something.  Start Quake4 with "+set fs_game 
                       strombine +set com_allowconsole 1", then load "map lunaran/strombine" 
                       from the console.

         Description : Short and kind of a mash of experiments with theme and lighting in
                       the engine, plus a bunch of scripts I had been fooling with.  Not
                       really too serious a release, but I'm hoping to reuse the stuff I've
                       developed to greater effect in the next project.  Take this as you 
                       would a sketchbook page.

                       I tried a realistic theme to get away from space panels, and became
                       sidetracked writing a much-too-unwieldy AI script to try and emulate
                       HalfLife2's snipers, along with a couple other simpler bits like ammo
                       crates.  To add bad guys, I imposed a Strogg architectural presence 
                       (with q4power textures, the necessary ones of which are included in 
                       the zip) in the same manner as Combine tech, henceforth the tongue-in-
                       cheek name "Strombine." ;P
