Half-Life 21.07.2021 - Combat Changes

A few combat changes have been pushed to alleviate some of the pressures created by the most recent weapons update. A lot of the things below are easily configurable now so changes in the future won't be so hard.
  • Fixed an issue where grenades couldn't be used when equipped in the Miscellaneous slot.
  • Fixed an issue where certain SWEP types could bypass the armor filter.
  • Fixed an issue where certain character states could break the Combine citizen records UI.
  • Buffed all armor levels to account for SWEPs now doing 2 or 3 times the damage they did before.
  • Changed the F3 equip-UI to show your damage resistance and speed slow-down instead of a flat armor level.
  • Adjusted the amount of damage resistance each NPC has; this is subject to further changes based on player reactions.
  • Added Combine Overwatch P.C.V. armor sets to replace the M.O.P.P. suits for standard operations.
For Overwatch soldiers, P.C.V. items are specifically designed per-rank. If you're Infantry, you need the soldier_infantry item. If you're Corporal, you need the soldier_corporal item. So on and so forth.

Fantastic work, Imp, as always. Looking forward to see how NPCs are affected (via the only way I know how ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ).

Come to think about it, last big iteration there was a big discussion on if the Combine used PCV or not, and I guess now we have our answer. There's probably a big lore-post in the archives somewhere.

I believe models/scripts exist for rebels to employ PCVs based on the prominent HECU variant. I also don't think it'll come easily into rebel hands anytime soon.
Any chance us humble rebel scum will ever get a chance to roleplay using one of these? (Charger not included)
