I know very well how the flood work, having made a detailed examination of them from the halo wiki. As for where it comes from, the un-needed biomass of the spawn themselves. Having no need for blood, organs, etc, they can dedicate that biomass to the production of a few infectors. EDIT: Evolutionarily speaking, the spawn would require something beyond hoping people decide to join them or biting the unwilling without killing them, otherwise the numbers would have to die off eventually. And we don't want that.

Oooh. Have them spawn from the body upon death? I mean, it shouldn't be too hard to do... This is a game that can form beings out of steam, and still label the individual skin layers. EDIT: I'm an idea's man. I have no idea how to mod. I'll have to look into it. Sorry. n.n;

The new strain of spawn infect all the old ones they come across? Thats just my idea, cause Joseph lets the strain Mr Frog just developed into the world.

Sadly, such a thing is outside the scope of any mechanic accessible to the player as far as I know... making the game spawn creatures in any capacity is a mother bitch last time I checked.

I didn't mean integrate them into THIS game, just to be clear. Just, next time they get used by us, it would be a cool shocker for those who haven't read this. And it would double (at the very least) the scary factor. EDIT: Then... Maybe just as additional combat forces when the spawn invade? I have no idea how this game works... MUST. LEARN. TO. MOD.
