    as the title suggests, what are your visions for a perfect npc/snpc that can be used in gmod?

    personally, i would like a giant octopus-type creature that has lots of tentacles that can burrow underground, grabbing and eating other npcs. :D
    sorta like the hydra from the hl2 beta. and yes, someone did make a hydra snpc, but other npcs ignore it and all it does is stab things. :P

    or maybe even a working facehugger (from the alien movie series) complete with a life cycle ranging from the chestburster to the adult drone/warrior.

    but easiest npcs that could be made are starcraft 2 npcs including the terran protoss and especialy zerg uinits and vehicles.

    please tell me your ideas! :D

    Gundams.

    Seriously, imagine playing on big city when a bunch of fucking robots fly over you and try to kill you.
    Even cooler if they were scripted to climb up walls and fly and shit.

    I could see hydras being easily abused on MP servers, eg, spawn being filled with them

    DOG with the ability to fight, or a giant combine mech that will smash everything in its path to get you.

    My idea is NPC packs with cars that shoot very much like the car (I forgot what name is) from command and conquer which is a pickup car with an attached turret behind. it will ram you and will shoot you. it should also work with nodes. :D
    also, second, is a behemoth from fallout 3 (I agree with bucketofshrimp)with a wide array of weapons like a nailed wooden board and axes and miniguns. that would be so swell. more ideas to come. somehow, I wish some modder would recognize this thread

    Another idea is a npc which can pretty much do what the average human can do, like climb a fucking ladder and not wonder what the hell it is

    agreed. also, it would be nice if there's an npc that could drive a car... that would be very groundbreaking.. but alas.. it's almost impossible.. or is it?

    One idea that I had stuck in my head for a year or so was the possibility of including a "NPC 2.0" which dosent rely on animations, instead creating its own animations for every action it does and reacting realistically to whatever the hell happens to it. and it has complete full range of movement, because im mainly tired of repetitive shooting or running animations. and maybe even drive vehicles and fly aircraft. (AKA it can do anything without repetitive animations and isnt anywhere close to Euphoria)
    Probably impossible but havent we all wished for this once maybe?

    no, not really. most of the official NPC's or professionally made NPC's have been good to me. Silverlans for example; the quality and effort put into the scripting of the NPC's along with the custom animations make it really top-notch.

    i think it would be more better if someone can make this: the lav from bf3 that shoots cannon and mounted guns, a snpc that involve with sword fighting, maybe upgrade the Ai for rebels like if they go too close to the enemy it would knife it, and the one npc annoys me is when the metro police standing in T-pose when holding a different gun (i think except the pistol). i hope this would be a good idea. btw IT would be badass if they make a guy with suicide bomber and any duel wield guns.

    As said before, big-ass flying robots that can climb walls and shit.

    Of course, they won't be of much use until someone makes a FULLY FUCKING DESTRUCTIBLE VERSION OF BIG CITY!

    The only thing expected from some people, something real simple is Ministrider from Episode One, the black hunter that shoots ar2 bullets and not blue hunter that fires flechettes from episode 2.

    It looks real simple. Play idle animations, play "deploy" animation when saw an enemy, shoots ar2 bullets to enemy then undeploys.

    "Not blue hunter"? The only thing I can find about that is a cut skin where the hunter has red eyes.

    It's in HL2:EP1 models folder, named ministrider.mdl. It's half complete hunter, no name has given yet and ministrider_animations.mdl has to be recompiled.

    I was talking about the "not blue hunter that fires flechettes from episode 2". I know about Episode 1's ministrider.
