hlss_main_frameMain Frames have all the same abilities as Combine Interfaces except they can't be hacked. They create a bullseye in their center that the Hostile NPCs use to attack it. The AI of the Hostiles look for Main Frames and Advisor Pods to destroy. Hacked Combine Ceiling and Ground Turrets, as well as Dog wont attack the Main Frame.
If the Main Frame's Generator was enabled when its health goes to zero, the OnNormalGeneratorDisable (and OnShieldsDisabled, OnTurretsDisabled, OnManhacksDisabled) output function gets fired, and the GeneratorEnabled input function wont work anymore. Destroyed Main Frames and Advisor Pods no longer show the glow effect or the Protect icon.
Only two models are currently enabled in the dns.fgd, Master Interface and Monitor Boy.
