Bingo :)
The purpose of the story is to have people question the usual way of handling zombies.

What I wanted initially is to have the two discover the secret of the "Don't dies"; that would make them murderers. Alex would then want to tell others the fact that the zombies are starting to recover, but gets killed by Derrick, to avoid the repercussion of their "cleaning operations" (now actually mass murders).
But hey, you only have 500 words :)

Half Life meets Doom 3 meets Resident Evil. Sounds very promising, and the video alone transpires the kind of atmosphere that tickles me the right way :)
I'll give the demo a try. If me likes, me buys :)

Now now, just because he doesn't have the time to play a lot of mods that doesn't mean he has no business being here. It would be like none of us should enter a food store just because we don't care that much about the differences in egg types.

I did vote, for 3 (or maybe 4?) mods that I liked.

Well, technically, there was no interruption of online play for AvP2: we had the new master server up and running at the same time Sierra pulled the plug on the official one.
Anyway, glad to have you back!

Not quite so, if you ask me. It's more of a drumm & base approach for the ambient one. The drums are a bit too strong if you ask me, true, but the piece definitely hasy rythm and theme.

Regarding community selections, keep them. I would say that it's up to the feelings of the game developer which prize is being regarded as more important for themselves. In that pov, most developers would love to get the editor's choice ;)

So it's a moddb issue. You should contact Intense about this; besides that it would help having a good audio file on moddb, it could also help Intense uncover and fix a potential bug.

I'll second that. The advantages of making the alpha public (you could still make the beta private) is that:
- more people to play it => more feedback
- more people to play it => more chances to recruit valuable team members

Herr_Alien Jul 17 2008, 5:50am replied:

Well, it is getting harder, even only because the fact that the scope of a mod becomes larger. As Tatsur0 pointed out, early mods are reskins or map packs, while later ones add new game types and new abilities.
And making a total conversion (basically a new game) is much harder now: think of the size of the team. If with older days one man could do the job, now you need a dozen.
The fact that modding grows however is best indicated by the fact that more and more mods tend to have industry-like quality (see Eternal Silence for example).

+2 votes   poll: In my opinion, modding is.....
Herr_Alien Jul 16 2008, 2:08am says:

I also see it growing, if not in numbers then in complexity. For example, if the earlier AvP2 mods consisted in skin/map packs, the latest mods tend to add more (see AJL, UHM, X-Coop and Imp-Coop). So even because of this evolution alone, modding is still growing.

I don't think it's the format. Per release, I usually upload 2 -3 videos, all encoded in the same way. Some of them do get the 'oil paint' job, while others (from the same release date) don't.
There is something to it, I just can't figure out a cause for it.

I see, so you're an alien fan.
Good news is that all three species are available for each of the teams. So, you can still play as an alien drone, or as a runner, but not as a facehugger (lifecycle is permanently off). Hey, go to the download page and give it a shot.

The reason is that a good friend of mine (calls himself Moose_Head!) already sent me a flag model, and I used that one. Check the download page for the mod, get the latest alpha and enjoy the flag he has built.

Herr_Alien May 30 2008, 5:13pm replied:

Well, AvP2 uses .abc files. These .abc files can be obtained from another Lithtech specific format, the .LTA file. Now the .LTA file is plain text; older games used .LTA files, so, somehow, file information got available.
The first person (that I know, at least) to build a .LTA exporter is Josh Leroy ( ). Since I use Blender, the exporter got my interest, and I plan to extend it to (hopefully!) export animations too.

Code. Quite a good ammount of coding. Good news is that the WAR and CTF game modes will provide functionality for (at the moment) two more game types: One Flag CTF (UT2k4's Bombing run) and some sort of Assault mode.
