A level designer of 11 years, first with maps for the Goldsource engine before moving to Source in 2007. Decent texture artist and voice actor, too. Co-founder of Scotch and Coffee Studios. I'm Archie, I'm Scottish, I'm 23 and I'm probably drunk.

(just for clarity for those who don't know; de_twhl2011 was a previous map of my own. I'm not stealing someone else's design or anything - just recycling my own for a better purpose)

There's a literary technique known as a 'play on words' in which you may take a commonly used word or phrase such as, I dunno, "dust settles" and change it slightly to accommodate a different meaning while still having connotations of the original phrase. Madness, I know, but sometimes I just can't help myself.

Urby has been suitably informed that if it's not released within a previously agreed 'reasonable timeframe' then I will park an elephant on his house. From a hot air balloon.
How did I get it up there in the first place? Science.

It's a good thing the developer's chat thread for The Core is used only for important mod-related discussion and planning.

It's a fair point, and one that I actually never really considered because the building it's based on where I used to work didn't actually have lights. ( Hunter.weebitmagic.com ).
I have however added spotlights on the ceiling although in reality they would have to be like 25,000 Watts to light that area.

When you see the pre-disaster version I think you may change your opinion. Most of the lights are actually off in this screenie & there's also considerable structural damage and a lot of fire!

We have many new variants of heads and bodies to add variety, but I see no benefit from adding rank insignias to a private security force. At no point in Half-Life's canon (afaik) is there ever any mention of security personnel having rank beyond "security guard" and "security supervisor". We've already taken it a slight step further by having an elite batch of security guards dressed in black uniforms for particularly high security areas around the central Black Mesa compound.

Had to google halo marine, but yeah I can see the similarity. I assure you that Halo was not the first game to have the idea of a physical HUD, though :P
Also, these are holographic, not glass /pedantic Archie
