I watched a video on YouTube where a barnacle just east the monster gargantua It's obviously made with the hl2 engine but I want to try 4 hl1.
Is it possible to set the length of a barnacle's tongue ?

Hahahaha Garry's mod XD

I'm pretty sure the barnacle's tongue reaches the floor beneath it (minus a few units) I'm not sure if there's a minimum or maximum length however.

In Half-Life 2, you can set the barnacles tounge height above the floor. It's 16 by default.
I'm pretty sure a programmer can add this feature to GoldSource Half-Life too.

In HL1 the tongue takes a while to get down.
It seems that barnacles from HL1 have less appetite than the one in HL2.It won't eat gargantua nor any alien.That's fair enough as enemy won't eat each other. However they eat scientists, g.i.s and even Assassins but not gmans !
Is it a joke about bureaucracy from the game makers ?

Dont talk to me about the HL2 editing credentials ... I know nothing on this subject.
It's a great game, such a big world. The edition must be very confusing.

The barnacles in HL only eat enemies to itself. GMan counts as "friendly" to all monsters, so he seems to be invisible and not attacked.
