Epic, although the synth soldier looks a little short...Maybe it's just the angle?

Interesting structure - sounds like narrative risk-taking if you ask me. It could work really well or really bad, but I'm not very worried there :D

So is Jack an ex-soldier or something? Sorry to nag, but the idea of a Gordon Freeman equivalent albeit sans Hazard suit managing to slay hordes of trained foes seems a tad far-fetched, no?

By the way, I would just like to note that the environment depicted in this screen is great. The high structures surrounding the player foster a kind of intensity, and the shade partially obscuring the alien makes it seem all the more creepy.

If you guys have played Human Error at all (fantastic mod, by the way) you should know how well these creepy bastards have been brought into HL2 ;P

Now this is really interesting. I'm guessing the player will battle the last remnants of the Xen army on earth, with the Nihilanth already destroyed and the Combine rapidly en-route...

If you read the posts and updates you can make a more educated deduction. From what I've gathered, we can probably expect an episode 1 one day with many more story elements, but don't expect it any time before, say...2014. Gotta be patient for mods ;)

Seeing as there don't seem to be many specifications as to what the mod will entail, I'll just pretend I'm directing work on it myself, and present my suggestions in the form of 'features':

- The main character would be an Army soldier (on leave, hence the friend/girlfriend dynamic) with sufficient training to credibly take on the Combine military.

- A difficulty for this mod would be coming up with original enemies: Seeing as the Combine do not yet control Earth, the 'trans-human' branch of their armed forces (APC's, hunter-chopper, soldiers, CP's...) would not exist, leaving it up to the dev team to come up with alien enemy foot-soldiers as an authentic counter-part to the myriad Synths which will obviously be rampaging around the cities.

If I was the director and wished to remain faithful to HL lore, I would opt for a few from this selection:

Half-life.wikia.com
Half-life.wikia.com

And Synth 'infantry' - Half-life.wikia.com

This is 'part human' but the main picture looks very alien to me:
Half-life.wikia.com

And along with these go the Crab and Mortar synths we saw briefly at the end of HL2. The main difficulty of this mod wouldn't be storyline (what you guys propose sounds really exciting) but mainly creating animations, skins and etc. for entirely new, alien enemies. If successful, the mod would be one of the best ever for HL2.

I hope these humble proposals are worthwhile, and if we get some juicy media releases from you guys over 2012, I would be happy to donate :) Good luck!

The atmosphere is stunning here. A simple picture, but I'm already imagining the scene in my head...

An oppressive silence dominates the vast, sombre trainyard. The deathly quiet is interrupted only by a few drips of water from pipes that line the ceiling, and a few clicks as a Combine guard mans the console overseeing the sleeping station. Aside from this, all is motionless.

The camera suddenly swoops in on three figures, stealthily emerging from a corridor and onto the main platform. Despite the freezing cold, Barney is sweating profusely, and as his companions instinctively take cover behind a nearby pillar, he kneels and wipes the sweat from his brow, trying not to pant too loudly.

He doesn't remember when he last got some sleep: The previous few days have just been a flurry of combat, a blur of death and toil, marked only by the final destruction of the Citadel some hours ago. Gordon had done it. Barney had been worried at first about his old friend, but he knew him well enough to recognise that such a feat was nothing abnormal for the One Free Man. Either way, none of this mattered now - he just had to get the hell out of the city with as small a loss of life as possible.

Focusing on the task at hand, Barney scanned the area. Despite how derelict the place was, the presence of the Combine was obvious: No tools, equipment or supplies were found lying around. There was no staff save for the one watchman at the console: Aside from - or even including - that, only the cool, mindless machine of the Combine overwatch.

With a few curt motions to the men, Barney made them aware of the situation. Hefting his trusty assault rifle, he prepared to once more do what he had grown accustomed to over the past week. Looking to the men, he grinned wryly: "Well, boys, it's time to catch a train."

Yeah, I guess I noticed that you do not have a full mastery of the English language . I understand that you wish to improve your linguistic skills, but I'm just offering to lend a helping hand if you ever think that some of your mods English script/dialogue could use a bit of 'polishing'.

This is understandable. I suppose you have a large team but people 'rotate' in and out when they can, adding bits and pieces? Or if they have a holiday they can spend a few afernoons modding, or whatever. Either way, do you accept donations? I dislike being cynical in this way, but I think it would attract more people to work for this mod if you were to accept donations. I would happily contribute 10 bucks to this mod, particularly with the knowledge that it may help increase the speed of modding work.

Meh, even by the time I'm done writing this it doesn't sound realistic. I guess there isn't any easy way forward :/
Still, do you?

Am I to understand that progress has been slow lately, that most of the team members have a job or are studying, that life HASN'T been fair and that maybe most, if not all members of the team want to devote at least some of their precious free time to doing things they personally enjoy, such as: Reading, sport, watching a movie, spending time with your girlfriend or friends+family, going on holiday etc.

Essentially, progress has been slow relative to the sheer mass of work ahead of you? One or some of your team members have taken a break or quit?
