New mod Steam Workshop allows you to use a lightsaber from “Star Wars” to cut headcrabs in Half-Life: Alyx, as you have always wanted!
Valve has released their official modding tools for Half-Life: Alyx a few days ago in the kit with the Steam Workshop. Despite the fact that before the official release of the tools had already created several mods and custom maps through the steam Workshop now offers a bunch of exciting new content, including this mod the lightsaber.
Available on Steam, the mod ‘Alyx Jedi — Lightsaber Training’ puts you on a custom map filled with headcrabs and zombies, and gives you three different lightsaber to choose from. One of them is your lightsaber standard size, the other long, and the last lightsaber in the style of Darth Maul (is this Baghdad would be considered, well, a sword or a staff in another).
At the moment, the mod only works on a custom map, so you will not be able to go into a campaign Half-Life: Alyx and cut the soldier of the Plant. Currently you are limited to moving on a custom map and destruction of the headcrab when they jump you in the face. So what exactly is missing is the iconic sound effects of lightsabers, which is currently missing in action. Perhaps they can be added in a future update.
The card also contains a point charge the energy of Messi Arsenal Christmas special, which you can use to attack the other hand in the style of Emperor Palpatine. There are also several other Easter eggs, such as static model aircraft.
The good news is that this light mod is just the beginning — with the new content appears on the page of Alyx Steam Workshop every day, expect some amazing mods and custom maps will appear in the near future.
