Lambda Wars requires a game configuration to be added to the Alien Swarm SDK, this is documented here
To do: document the lw entities
Features that would be useful to modders
- Recast Navigation Mesh - These meshes are of multiple types (for different units) and are generated much faster than Nextbot navmeshes. It is avaliable separately on Github: https://github.com/recastnavigation/recastnavigation
- Python bindings - Lambda Wars contains extensive (automatically generated) Python bindings. These bindings are used to extend the game code into Python, allowing to extend entity classes and define new game modes among others. These bindings are also available as a separate project, PySource SDK 2013.
Lambda Wars is open source, and its source code is available here.
