I am a Goldsource mapper and huge aficionado of the Half-Life franchise. I also play guitar and spend my reclusive lifestyle doing so when I'm not playing video games on Steam. :3
Ha a present!
Oh boy I wonder how much harder the Gonarch will be. Or even Nihilanth. 0_0 FREEMANNNNNN! :3
Ha I wonder what Barney's thinking while staring at this logos floating around. Ha I know they're supposed to like get you through the level right?:3
Boxy? Nah, it's fine-detailed and doesn't seem to have any blandness to it whatsoever! :P
I dig those phone booths man like I dig this whole mod. I will thrilled to play it when it is finally issued. ^_^
I'm liking the layout that I'm seeing so far and especially the theme as well. I like mods that don't resort to typical firefights and such. :3
I like it man. Perhaps change the texture of the glass to fit the room better and maybe also add some more entities like sitting scientists, Barneys, etc. :3
Wow man. The looks of this mod are just too fappable man. Great work and I can't wait to play the final product. :3
Okay this is too cool man! Looks like this take me back to the old days of Half-Life.
Kinda credible enough to say that Valve developed it. It's very old-school, which is my favorite when it comes to areas like this in HL1. :3
I love it.
Cool man! Reminds me of the Borealis kinda. :3
I'm loving mods like this! Keep up the good work man! :)
I'm liking the dark tone to this room. Perhaps you could add some leeches into the water while you're at it or if you really wanna freak out the player, put an icky in there. ;) :P
Cool beans man. I like the osprey replacement with a truck. How clever. :3
I like this. All I'd really suggest here is maybe add a bit more varieties with the textures.
Looks fine. I'd just add much more entities. :3
I'm like the reskins here on the grunt and the dead scientist.
Yeah it would and I don't wanna waste my time doing that. I'm just gonna keep it the way it is.
Thx and yup there will be some more moments like this probably in the mod.
Thanks and the player is behind impervious glass. So the soldier cannot shoot the player. And the door to the room is obviously locked so yeah.
I'm liking this. The only suggestion I really have is to add more sitting NPCs like a guy reading a newspaper or whatever. It's always nice to keep the player looking around and to surfeit them to lots of eye candy. :3 ;)
I like it. ;)
I just added a little corridor to the right consisting of a locked door and another soldier. I'll post pic of the updated room sometime. Just thought I'd tell ya that i took your advice. :3
OMG! The three big squares make a triangle kinda if you turn it a little more sideways. ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED! :3
Well they're not necessarily wardrobes actually. They're mainly footlockers. :3
No man it's not. Sure, it's much more sophisticated than Sky Mesa by a long shot, but I'm telling you, The Core is MOTY bro. Not Orange Shift.
Yup things change rather quickly LOL. :3
Ha nah I may add those in on whatever other mod I'll make in possibly the next few years after this one.
Yup I'm with Thanoshld. The walls do seem a little barren so maybe you could add some decals and or posters or whatever. :3
Ha well I did in fact put a somewhat girly magazine in the first map. It's a Poke646 texture and it is on one of the scientist's side wardrobes within the dormitories. I added it there as a joke to imply that one of the scientists had their XXX to stare at. :3
Ha thanks man. I'm working hard on this part and am trying to design the way I've sketched it out to be. :3
No worries I will eventually edit this bit. This is all WIP and will be reviewed, edited, and playtested in the end.
Ha that was one of my original ideas but no that is not the case here. This is just a segment of the Sector C Test Labs I 'borrowed' from the HL1 map files. So yeah you will be able to through recognizable corridors and pathways, but no you will not be revisiting the Sector C Test Labs tho.
What do you mean? This wasn't in any of the HL1 games and any HL1 mod I've ever played. This is something I made a while back in the early development stages of Orange Shift.
No worries, I will sooner or later. Keep in mind that this is all WIP.
I ain't doing voice acting actually. I'm just gonna import lines from HL1 expansion packs and edit also.
Thx. I actually borrowed this area from Decay but also I added in some of my own things before it.
Starting to look better. Nice!
Why is that one table just floating in midair? Or are there some supports on the back?
"Well, I seem to be seriously wounded."
"You've got to believe me! Freeman could be anywhere!"
Dude I will. It says WIP (work in progress)
Looks pretty good. It's always nice to see an update.
Not bad. Though I would add more objects to each room. Like maybe have some headcrabs or maybe a monster teleportation sequence.
He does indeed.
That's the way they look tho. I didn't fit the texture itself. I just connected the lights together.
Alright I'll look into that.
Not bad. Keep up the good work. ;)
I will. I'm also gonna add some crates, boxes, health chargers, HEV chargers, soldiers, sandbags, etc.
Yeah I edited the text. I really am screwing around with the game's files.
Alright I think I'll do that later.
Nice work. Just add some more things like prefabs and stuff.
Alright well I mean this area is supposed to be an office complex. Also the location is well Black Mesa of course so I put a lot of lights up since Black Mesa is a giant facility with lots of electricity running through it.
He could of fallen but maybe crawled a little ways before completely bleeding to death.
No it's just a place a borrowed from HL1. The location may look the same but it's a different office complex in Black Mesa.
They're the door handles. He is standing behind a locked glass door.
It is actually a section of Office Complex I borrowed for my mod.
The one floor texture on the column thing is kinda out of place. Maybe add a lab texture to it since it seems like the location is well a laboratory.
The cliffs are kinda repulsive to look at. I can see where you fitted the texture and where it became all stretched out. Maybe you could replace the cliffs and be sure not to have any stretched textures.
Change the textures on the buildings. They really aren't that pretty IMO.
Whoa looks like the dreamcast version had some differences in level design.
I like it. Certainly an improvement without a doubt!
Oh well I just saw the texture and figured I'd just use it on a table. I think I'll change some of the textures sometime anyway so thanks for informing me.
Post more images of the rooms. I wanna see what kind of brushwork you're heading for.
Well I played the first level and it was absolutely terrible. This mod needed more playtesting to be done before its release. This mod is the home of glitches! 3/10 because it's a good idea executed extremely badly.
Well I remember playing this mod a long time ago and it certainly hasn't aged well. I thought this was absolutely horrendous. Bad mapping, terrible storytelling, no story at all actually. The mod was actually just a lot of killboxes mainly and all of the maps were very glitchy. In the second map, the game crashed and I had to activate the next map through the console. The ending of the mod was buggy and wasn't very impressive. Overall, I could rant all day about this.
My rating for The Way is Clear is gonna be a horrible 1/10. Definitely not worth the download AT ALL!
I like this. I know it's an early stage so I won't complain about purposes.
Sweet design here! I like how the blood looks on the pipe.
Lol the scientist up there.
Oh no! You're one of them! Can't we just get along?
Here's a comment for ya. Nice try trying to claim my old mod as yours. Just cuz I abandoned the project doesn't mean you can get your hands on it! So you better not try to claim it or else I will report you. Son of a bitch!
It's kinda cool. Kinda reminds me of the model from Deathmatch Classic. But otherwise, I give it a 7. It's cool but a little too distracting for me IMO.
Alright. Add more things to the outside. Don't make the mod so empty.
The red lights look a little funny. Wouldn't they be shining straight as well? Not just downward to the ground.
Yeah. I would have continued but my old laptop burnt out, so yeah. I lost everything. I thought I backed it up but no. :(
Not bad looking. Just add more objects.
You need more detail in your mod. The design is so-so, but the level seems purposeless. Like I said before, a mod full of killboxes isn't really gonna be that impressing.
If I were you, I would add more things into each room. When you're making rooms for your mod, be sure they all have a purpose. You don't want your mod to be nothing but killboxes.
Lol, he's stuck in the vending machine.
Wow, that looks great.
Yeah, I know. I felt like there had to be a texture for the pizza. Thanks for reminding me and i think i'll replace this texture. ;)
Yeah, thanks. :)
Bruno stop talking. You're just getting your comments even more buried and buried.
I'm speechless right now. This is just too cool!
This looks surprisingly....... awesome! Tracking this! Good luck with your project.:)
Thx for the advice. I might change these textures. Though I feel that they match for some reason. But yes I do look at other fantastic HL1 mods to get ideas.
Same thing I said before, perfect!
I really love the TV screen. Very well done area.:)
Here's another example of SNC's god mapping.:)
I already have made sure there are no leaks and things. Thanks for giving me some more tips. I'm pretty sure I'll use this technique again somewhere along the line. Thx.:)
Alright thx man. Yeah I can do some of those I think. Thx. Really appreciate the constructive criticism.:)
It was on. It just strangely happened when I carved the door. I am thinking of straightening these textures out. Don't worry.
Do you mean a trim? Cuz yeah I think I can do what I think you're advising me to do.
Why a walkthrough? This mod is so bad that it's probably driven away have of the population.
Thank you so much. I played black guard on won with steam version and it was glitchy. Maybe this one will be better hopefully. Downloading.:)
Look dude the same thing happened to me. Try changing your video modes. I changed mine from openGL to directX and it worked just fine.
Thank you urby very much. Your kindness I truly appreciate.:)
Oh yes there is!
Okay yeah I think I'll move them down a bit. I was just thinking of having some more detail in my mod than I had in the original sky mesa. Anyway, thank you for the constructive criticism. You're always good help to me urby. :)
Hey also be sure to track my mod.
Thx for the review of my mod.
A newcomer! Welcome to my friends list serko9355! :)
It certainly is.
Thank you once again.
Looks awesome! 7 years in the making. This must be an astounding mod.
Well so far I do have no problems. Thx for the advice.
Jamming on these maps. They just really seem vacant and abandoned.
Well srry you think that man.
The platform you see in the back is out of date. I deleted it.
BTW, the floor texture is changed in game because I changed it. Just letting you know if you see an inconsistancy
Out of date. I've changed this.
Certainly liking this. Keep it up.
Okay. Thank you.
Challenger Deep 2 is looking good!!!
Isn't the yellow haired guy supposed to be David from the film? Because in my opinion, he looks a lot like him so good job.
Hey thank you for reviewing my mod.
I agree with you. There really isn't any need to make custom skyboxes because well goldsource already has a vast collection of them.
Ladies and Gentlemen we present you the desk and chair room of nothingness!
Lovely! But maybe add a little more light?
Yep this is one of the parts that i focused on the most.
Thank you again.
Thx i worked pretty hard on this section of the mod. :)
Lovely mapping!!! Really admire the shadows of the fans. I especially love the dark tone to this area. It really feels like valve mapping. Hell, some of your mapping seems better than valve mapping! (no joke)
Okay. Will do.
Image is out of date. Iv'e changed this. Unfortunately. But i will again redo my tribute of Luther Johnson so don't worry KingDaniel.
Image is out of date. Iv'e changed this.
EXCELLENT! Brushwork is pefecto!
Classic OP4 mapping. :D!!!
Awesome! This was one of my favorite parts of the mod!
Oh well okay than.
LOL! I remember LMAO seeing this in the mod.
Fix the textures where on the vents? Well i'll fix them later because iv'e already started development on the second map. And BTW i don't use firefox. Bing and google is good enough for me. Nevertheless, i appreciate the criticism. :)
A fallen over computer that has a spark sprite set on it.
Wow don't you just love the cheap MS paint? :/
Hey man thanks for watching my mod. Really apreciate it. :)
You can say that again! This is incredible!
Well so far the mesa times is looking really good. I really admire the cafeteria that you made. Plz keep up the good work becuase you got yourself a tracker. :D!!!
I will not. Iv'e already started development on my redo.
This is part of map 2 now. I have dethroned map 3.
Wow such classic mapping. This was WAY back in 1999 which is quite incredible.
Uh no i'm going to sleep with this pedophilia look on this person's face. 0_0
Iv'e already changed quite alot of this room so the image is somewhat obsolete.
This owns call of duty in many ways.
Lol i remember this part. I laughed so hard i fell out of my chair! No joke.
Yes it is a window. Located in Luther Johnson's room.
Thank you very much. I will change it immediately. :)
I was intending to make it large. I wanted a cool room for the player to start in. Not just some mediocre tiny room.
Image is out of date. I have changed this part.
Okay well that's good because i do see some things in this image that could be tweaked. For example, the computers behind Barney behind the desk jsut feel out of place. They could be replaced with something else. But i suppose you've changed that already.
The terrain just looks awful.
Not bad. :)
Thx man. I didn't know about grid levels so i'll try to manipulate them. Thx for the advice. ^_^
What do you mean?
You said it man.
Hey thanks for tracking my mod. Nice to have a newcomer to this fine website! ^_^
Calm down doom guy!
Thanks for tracking my mod.
I will add a WHOLE LOT of other things into this end corridor of map 2.
Prefecto! Brush work is astounding!
It's probably the room maide. The person who cleans the room.
The pistol was the best thing in this mod.
Very good mapping. The mod was just too short for me though. Also; i don't think there will be a part 2. The last update of this was like seven years ago.
BWG has been offline for a LONG time. I don't think he's coming back.
Shame on you rumpel.
Nice picture from a nice game. It isn't as good as fallout 3 though. IMO.
WOW! I totally am downloading this mod right on the day it is issued. :D
Halo took place in 2552. Not 2025. Get video game criticism together before posting a ridiculous comment like this.
No offense man but you need a mapping assistant. The mapping so far looks clunky.
Seriously? There is a download you dimwit. Didn't you see the latest downloads? It's like the first thing that pops up on your damn screen. Blimey! :/
Looks like a scorpion from COD.
Again people my voice sounds odd just because of the sound of my mike. :3
Kinda lame but i just made this when i was bored.
My voice didn't appear here for some reason. So looks like you'll have to skip to the part where i do start to put text.
Hello newcomer. Good to see you at this fine website! ^_^
Oh yeah one little thing: my voice sounds weird through the microphone. Trust me people, my voice doesn't REALLY sound like this when i'm in person.
Thank you for saying that! It's good to know i have someone who understands what i was trying to tell cyberdemon. ^_^
I was posting this awesome picture i found in the game files. You just don't try to read the description do you twerp. I DIDN'T FUC--ING DO PRISON! READ THE DESCRIPTION!
I was showing this random picture that i found in the bonus content files of prison. Also didn't you read the damn description? The first sentence is I suppose this is reaktor the CREATOR of prison. Look a bit harder for a description next time pal. :/
Hey thanks for uploading some of those mods. Some sucked no offense. But i thank you for uploading affliction. One of my very favorite mods. Thx:)
Hey how's the volcano going? I'm pretty excited for that mod.
Well i prefer to do gold source. For nostalgia sake. Oh and yeah i will add images in my next tutorial. I was just being a lazy *** and didn't want to. :3
Well you are a spy. Spies are cunning.
Hmm gonna download this now.
I'm downloading this now.
