This is an Idea Challenge. The first of its kind for RTSL. Suggested by Mr. Mazur.
Earlier today, I tweeted this:
I think it's important to acknowledge ignorance. Today was the day I realised that fast zombies are created from fast headcrabs!
Yes, I know that's pretty obvious but I am not the smartest crowbar in the toolset.

The upshot was that I realised we should be creating a new zombie class that uses the MechaCrab zombie. If you don’t know what the MeachCrab zombie is, please visit the RTSl Mod Template page.
We feel that the MechaCrab should be attached to the Rebel model, as that model doesn’t have an official zombie type. But that is not set in stone, we could change that.
Therefore, I would like to hear your suggestions for a zombie based on the MechaCrab. We need sensible ideas that can be coded and modelled. Ideas that fit into the HL Universe, so don’t suggest things like the MechaCrab on the G-Man, for instance.
We require some unique features for its attack. Something that makes it feel fresh, different AND fun to play against.
Of course, we will have to beta test things but this challenge is just about the ideas.
I know that there are probably lots of new types of zombies on Steam Community and Game Banana, but I don’t want to use soemthign that has already been created.
I will give some games away to the best ideas.
There’s only three rules:
1. By submitting you idea, you grant RTSL the right to create and release the concept as part of the RTSL Mod Template.
2. You are the creator of the idea.
3. It’s family friendly, within the confines of the Half-Life 2 setting.
Post your ideas as a comment below or if you want to do it privately, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know if you have any questions.
