I am working on a hl2 mod. It won't be for everyone but I hope it will be an interesting experience for those who can get into it.
Yes that file is two songs mixed together but I can't remember what the other one is... I looked hard on youtube but cant find it :D
Thanks everyone your support will carry me all the way, God willing I'll finish very soon :)
What do you mean by new elements? Like changes to the hl2 game-play? Or you played the 2013 version? Were you one of the testers? There I already included the air refinery maps but no new props or assets it was all brushwork.
The final version will have more elements like maps set in space and more industrialized areas and some other things while the 2011 beta was mostly variations on an "urban decay" style.
I hope it will be one of the better Source engine campaigns when done. Yeah mostly done by me so it take so long :/ Sorry about that...
Don't know who that is... Sorry.
radiatoryang on YouTube pointed out that many lights in half life are just floating under the ceiling not connected to anything at all but who cares cause no one will notice and he is right... I played through half life many times and I have never noticed...
That being said I do try to detail every area that will be seen up close.
Yay! This and Fast Detect are the only two mods I played in years cause I am busy. But it was worth the time. :)
Watched in theaters twice, listening to its OST when mapping sometimes.
Yeah, looks awesome, I might play it.
Compared to how much time has passed since I am working on this project - about a decade - yeah, you could say "soon" it will be done.
I map alone and mapping takes time, there is no way around that. I am in the last stages and this is crucial- a lot of games and movies feel rushed towards the end. I want to avoid that.
I say no to a lot of things to be able to do this. And as of now I have no clue if it will be a success in any way so yeah... but at least for the most part I do enjoy making it so I hope it will work out in the long run.
And God willing if I finish the way I feel it should be finished then even if it flops I will always be able to say "I gave it my best shot."
Indeed... I did NOT set out to do so but somehow it evolved into a decade long project.
Pretty much, I get help with specific things like coding and models here and there but mapping wise which takes up by far most of the time I am alone. That is why it takes so long.
Actually I had to go through all these loops and flash is back on youtube... was worth it as I hate html5.
Install YouTube Flash Player plugin and install greasemonkey scripts
I also had to disable some things in the firefox config file, see below:
A new ongoing level design analysis series of hl2. Yup after all these years it's still an amazing world to explore.
More Google nonsense...
Youtube is enforcing HTML5 as the default player because Flash is being phased out by 2020... I do not like HTML5 player as it slows down my comp and also often it will not load videos in HD.
So if you have the same problems install the VLC player and use it with this firefox addon... works for me...
Apologies, I am super busy with mapping. I'll try to put out something this weekend. :)
I started around 2007 making architectural study maps for gmod 9 than slowly it turned into a mod.
I'd start here:
I cannot access discord due to a login error so I can't help anyone trying to access my server there. Ask Unq/Don I think he runs the RTSL server and my mod is in there somewhere.
Thank you for your constant encouragement! You really understand what I am going through with a huge project like this... doing the last 20% will be the toughest part...
I feel like I am in the Death Star trench run approaching the exhaust port...
Stay on target!
Currently working on a tiny laptop because I had to relocate for a couple of weeks. Also I can't login to Discord for now so in case I am not replying there that's why...
Ye I am working on it a lot. Most of my free time actually. Hang in there - completion is coming. I want to get it right. For a rushed version there is the beta to play. :)
Something like that may happen but I don't want to focus on marketing and shipping issues until at least most of the creative work is behind me. Otherwise I'll spread myself too thin and will not finish.
Great avatar pic my friend! :D
Yes, this is the second act I hope to finish in a few weeks. Indeed a milestone. Then I have to make the third act. :)
I want to release only when all three acts are done of course but knowing that these two are done (and will be released if God forbid I can't finish everything as planned) is a load off my back.
Yes, you make Huge mods too so you know how time consuming mapping can be!
When all three acts are done I will release as a free mod and if there is interest I'll try to get it on Steam for a small price. This is the plan but we will see. I hope it will be well received, I'll do my best.
