References to a New Playable SI Found in Game Files
« on: January 27, 2018, 03:15:21 am »
A year ago, Turtle Rock Studios (creators of L4D1) Developer Chris Ashton released the files to their unfinished campaign, tentatively called Dam It: Buried by the Flood. We've been digging through these files for a while, and made some interesting discoveries including the existence of two new incomplete tier 3 weapons, the Heavy Shotgun and Heavy Rifle.

Recently, however, beta community member Mr. Sangheili checked into certain files that we overlooked, and found references to a new playable special infected: The Queen. Unfortunately, the entire extent that we know of this new SI is only through the file paths it would have used:

Model:

models/infected/queen.mdl

Weapon Script:

scripts/weapon_queen_claw.txt

Decals:

queen_trail
queen_trail_cheap

The second file gives away that this new SI would have been playable -- files in the format of "weapon_xyz.txt" in the scripts folder are usable items only, so The Queen is not an uncommon zombie or unplayable boss like The Witch. What are your thoughts on this?
