Point Entity Sprite Pack for GoldSrc v1.0

by simbl 27.02.2024

Custom sprites for all important point entities of the GoldSrc engine. Gives the map a cleaner look, makes it more clear and drastically reduces the number of big, pink boxes in the editor.
Tested with Jack on Windows 11, though might also work in other editors/OS.

How to:
  • make a backup of sprites.pak file in your J.A.C.K. directory, where jack.exe is located
  • replace the sprites.pak in the J.A.C.K. directory with the one included in this zip
  • open the FGD of your game/mod
  • look for a point entity you want to use the sprites for and replace the coordinates, color and size information with the sprite path
    • for example
    • old FGD entry: @PointClass base(Targetname, Angles) size(-16 -16 -16, 16 16 16) = monstermaker : "Monster Maker"
    • new FGD entry: @PointClass base(Targetname, Angles) iconsprite("sprites/monstermaker.spr") = monstermaker : "Monster Maker"
  • repeat this with all entities, you want to use the sprites with - you can get the sprite names from the screenshot in this zip
If the sprite for your favorite entity is missing, just message me on Discord (simbl, I'm usually in the TWHL Discord Server) or leave a comment here and I will include it.

Happy mapping! :)

Ooh, they do look very clean. Is there an easier way to replace all sprites than the manual one-by-one you described?

@Chimz

Not that I know of. You could propably script it with replace but since they all have different names and also different characteristics (size and so on) it propably isn't worth the hustle.
