About The Survival with 2 comments by SuperNexus on Mar 24th, 2015

Greetings everyone!

It has been quite a while since the last time The Survival's MODDB page was updated. Things have gotten quite busy over the past several months, and while progress has been made, the mod is still under wraps and has also undergone a few changes.

Custom Models #1

For starters, The Survival was originally envisioned as a Half-Life 2 mod, running on the Source SDK 2013 Singleplayer Base. Eventually, a decision to port everything over to the Alien Swarm Engine branch came into mind, and thus after consideration, all of the assets have been moved over to the AS Engine branch. The Survival will still be a single-player mod, only on a different engine branch.

Moving everything over to the Alien Swarm engine branch allows for multicore rendering, faster rendering of models & particles, as well as advanced water shaders and deferred lighting. VPK support would also allow to keep files (maps, textures, sounds, models, etc.) in a more organized way.

Trailer House interior

Because of this, a copy of Alien Swarm will be the only thing you will need in order to play The Survival. Fret not, for AS is free to download on the Steam store!

One last thing, the mod is NOT DEAD. It is very much still alive and being worked on daily. Be sure to check back for more updates in the foreseeable future.

hmm.. if this is to be compared to UDK, then you would have to be able to make any kinds of games with the Alien Swarm SDK and not just mods for it.

so is this possible?

This game is soo fun. With the console commands i figured out from a steam news update, its even better. L4D-esque horde spawns add a little spice, especially when tweaked a little to specifications. It made soloing Landing bay on easy, well, not so easy :P but i actually made it through one >.^

1. Start a multiplayer server normally
2. Close it
3. Type "map lobby" in console
4. Type "sv_cheats 1" in console
5. Invite friends

The fact that this game is free continues to amaze me. Alien Swarm is a top down shooter that feels like futuristic Diablo II to a large degree. You fight off hordes of aliens with your friends in order to complete missions that require teamwork skill, and sometimes a little luck. The game has RPG elements – you level up and get access to new gear, there are four character classes, and multiple characters within those classes to select. This game should be a popular addition to any LAN party or…
