My nickname is pronounced [kvoz/\luri]. Things I love: Dead Space, Propper (Hammer compiler), Win 8, coffee. Things I hate: TF2, Garry's mod, unnecessary graphical things like parallax and people who're praising these over anything else, and lack of real, widespread advancement in computer-user interface.

The archived thing is just an unfortunate nuisance. Bear with it a little longer. Oh, and while it says 'ceased development', the archiving also applies to mods that temporarily halted development (and I am developing at this very moment, so that's not the case either).

I know what that error mean, but how can entity number vary from player to player? What changes it? If there is an answer to this question, it would be an answer to the error.

I'm getting the ed_alloc error on d2_aires_02 as well now (with ed_alloc 4096, 8192 and 16384 all the same). Heh. It's sort of inconsistent and different to track down. I'll let know if I find a way to prevent it.

You mean bright red crosses everywhere? Those should be rain particles but they're not being precached, hence the engine 'missing particle' effect. Use r_drawparticles 0 console command to disable particle rendering, I'm not sure if there are other workarounds; forcing the game to precache the file needed doesn't help, and I think the problem lies in the rain tutorial from VDC (I assume the team tried to follow that tutorial).

For the ed_alloc thing, try launching the mod with command line parameter -max_edicts 4096 or -max_edicts 8192 added.

Story mods? As in, with in-game storyline being present and played through? Don't know of any, actually. Other than Missing Info if you count Borealis chapter with narrating done by a couple of voiced bits from the leak.

We've already passed the ten mods mark actually. In more or less chronological order w/o the ones pronounced dead:
1) Missing Information
2) Project 9 (I dunno, ?)
3) Old Story
4) Vertigo
5) Conscript
6) The Origin
7) Dark Interval
8) Insolence
9) RtB
10) Cremation
11) Depot
12) Town 17
13) Dark Skies
14) Alpha Retaliation

And I might be forgetting some.

I wonder why haven't you mentioned Raising the Bar mod.

Have you simply forgotten, or didn't know it's there, or were you only counting presumably dead ones?

Машины надо заменять на американские 60-70х годов. Такие, как Ford Thunderbolt 1964, для него вот недавно обнаружили текстуру в бете, очень примитивную и неиспользуемую, но указывает всё на эту модель. Хотя, возможно, текстура для Thunderbird того же года, но это сомнительно, первая больше походит на остальные старые автомобили на картах стилем.

There are just lots of things the meaning of which is... mysterios at best times. In such cases I just remind myself that is has been 10 years of alien regime, and some amount of time of constant Xen invasions prior to it. So, many things could have came up. It also applies to the way many things in concepts blend (or rather don't do this well) in original City setting. I kinda love that, too. In some ways it is similar to "Blade Runner", which had some urban set pieces which were basically effeciency/function-oriented nonsense, with no damns given about whether it fits its surrounding, plus this special thing when you see pretty old, classical may I say, 'overgrown' with future tech. Because the world ended and no one cares about protecting humanity legacy now. Kinda same deal in original C17.

This all being said, I don't think that's a rebel thing. Well, except if it's out of the city, but that's doubtful. It doesn't look well defended or even hidden. Probably just some proles hiding here. Or it used to be their shelter.

Also, try to learn a bit more about setting HDR up in Source. It takes a little more than just compiling maps with HDR settings, you also need to set up env_tonemap_controller entity to avoid the HDR getting too bright, as seen above.

I'm not sure. Maybe it's 16? Source allows to have max 16 sounds per channel as I understand it, and amb_generics are on the same channel I guess. There are separate channels like CHAN_WEAPON, CHAN_VOICE, CHAN_BODY, and I suppose also for physics sounds and some else.

Sure is. The same way as with editing any particles' color. I guess I'll look into it someday. Plus, there's lots of ways to improve the fire... assign it with sounds (default HL2/Epx fires don't produce sounds on their own, the sounds are placed by level designer), add heatwave particles, maybe add fire spreading. The sound part is tricky though, when there are too many fires (i.e. if 3 or 4 cremators are fighting someone at the same time), there would be too many sounds and other sounds would be silenced.

One problem (besides slowness) is that their walking is loud as hell, giving away their presense to you from miles away. Were they silent, they would be ouflanking the player and frying him in seconds (totally silent geth pyros from Mass Effect 3 come to mind). Proper level designing could help with that though, giving them sudden entrances, attacks from below and above, ambushes...

Luckily, they don't fire at you infinitely. They now have bursts, the length of which correlates with difficulty level, i.e. on Easy they fire at you for a few seconds, leaving you with about 30-40 hp, while on Medium and Hard they fire for a longer amount of time and, yeah, can just fry you. That, plus those spawning fires, which also deal their own damage.

Oh, please... this is even less likely than him leaving us alone on his own.

>If you really want to cancel then at least release your work and pass it on to the Raising the Bar or Insolence team they could make good use of it

That would be the plan. Don't worry.

What is made so far is way unfinished. I'd say, it isn't much different from just dowloading the Leak and play it, if only more fancy and a little more stable. So I'd really prefer not to.

The effort didn't have a solid and accurate vector, so to speak. A lot of small things were done, instead of bringing something to singularity of quality, readiness.

Since I do care slightly for reputation, let's speak of two points here.

1) I never found an ignore button in PM settings. Don't believe it's there.

2) I wanted to wait a little longer, preferrably till I get the results I want, but here's the deal: I'm not doing anything until this person is banned. I contacted support staff, not sure I constructed my request correctly, feel free to advise how to do so. Until then, I wait.


As I understand, coolguy32 produced like HUNDRED times less headache. Trust me. romanix199's persistance and inability to understand could be rivaled to that of a schizofrenic person, yet the act wouldn't be so prolonged in this case. I honestly don't care if this is an actual brain damage we're talking here or trolling. The decision is made, I wait, and we all hope staff can see the root of problem, and take it out.

Besides, he isn't even 'spewing trash', he just GETS to me. Every day, every half a day even, there is new message about him making some apologies and pleading to answer, to which I already answered, numerous times, 'leave me alone'. He does not understand. And then he immediately goes into aggro mode, telling that he will not leave me alone until I answer. Which I did! But no. So, a no to a no.
