Yes we have plans for Police NPCs (both zombie and human); the National Guard models were finished first, their amounts will be tweaked on a later patch

NMRiH2 will release when hell freezes over, wait whenever there's an official non-facebook post for further details

Nothing's stopping anyone from making their own modifications to the game. We haven't done anything on our end to hamper the efforts of the custom community out there!

Is it all the maps or just a specific few?

Smiley_Riley @ 2014 Kickoff Update

I've read the article. I know the dilemma they're facing. We went through the same deal with Valve in No More Room in Hell.

Although we could've sold our mod as a Source title on Steam, we chose not to. We simply wanted to allow people to enjoy our game through a nice digital distribution service, for free. None of us on the team became modders with the intent of making money.

It'll be a shame if the rest of the greenlit Source projects go the way of Black Mesa's choice.

> Marked as Free to Play on Greenlight, initially advertised as such
> Once greenlit, announces possible plan to turn mod into paid product on Steam, instead of their original free project
> It isn't even an original IP

That's nice

Smiley_Riley @ How long have you been modding?

I dabbled with mission scripting for those old Jane's Combat Sim games in '98; emulating Ace Combat in a flight sim didn't exactly turn out well. I later got into scripting scenarios/level editing in Age of Mythology.

After a few years of that nonsense, I learned some C++ and tried to make my own personal HL mod. By now I realized that I was better at breaking things, rather than creating new things. I shifted gears and decided to be a simple tester. Sounded simple and easy to do, just play games and mods until they break.

That small tester thing later turned into 8 years of madness, working in several dozen mods at the same time (never do that). In some of those mods I became QA Lead and I had to start that stuff up from scratch. That was problematic at times since most 'testers' simply want to play the game. The second you say "please submit your issues to the Bug Tracker", they all flee. It was really stressful ensuring each release and patch was as stable as it can be, noting down as many issues as you could, knowing that some of them cannot be resolved (due to deadlines, or us not having access to the full Engine) ZPS was a bit stressful, since it was a Steam Mod (ZPS Team was well kept so not too bad), but NMRiH was the worst. Even though we tracked down most of the issues (around over a thousand tickets were submitted, spread across TRAC/Mantis/GitHub) and fixed a good deal of the worst bugs, we couldn't fix a select few of them in time for some of our releases (we made Source 2007 do things it shouldn't be doing). I couldn't sleep for two weeks after our initial Beta 1.0 release. I didn't sleep right for a full month in the case of our Steam release.

But those were an interesting 8 years; In addition to the QA, I got dragged into Level Design, more scripting, PR, community and team management.

Nowadays I rather just sit down and roll 10 sided dice. 'Modding' tabletop games is significantly less stressful and more enjoyable (table flipping antics ftw)

If you played TF2 or CS:S it's the same idea; you can open up a server browser and join a pre-existing community dedicated server, or create your own Local/Listen server

Feedback, good or bad, is still feedback. That's why we all take the time to read the Steam Forums and our ModDB page to see what we're doing right and more importantly, doing wrong. Some of them have valid points and arguments (the others are fun to read).

Otherwise I personally think we did something right if people still play and talk about our ****** mod after 3 years of its initial release. Better to be talked about, than to not be talked about at all.

Smiley_Riley @ Faceless - The New Year's Update (2014)

A lot of stuff happens when you manage to successfully greenlight a project (lots of boring legal redtape)

However contrary to what the other Greenlit projects said (blah blah blah we had to make our game retail), you can still release your game for free; you just need someone who actually speaks and understands legal jargon

Smiley_Riley @ Best Upcoming Mod of 2013 Players Choice

Sorry to break it to you but, not every mod focuses on ModDB for their community efforts (see MTA:SA for an example)

Also, HL2 is no longer the modding haven it once was; all the major Total Conversion mods are either out (and dead) or were dead long ago.

We'll be seeing more small scale fun mods like Jaykin' Bacon (it looks great), and mods for more popular titles like Skyrim (If you haven't heard of the SureAI team you're living under a rock)

There aren't any plans to have AI teammates (at least, not like the L4D bots), but we're planning on implementing various NPCs (like the National Guard) that can either help or hinder your goals

Smiley_Riley @ Black Mesa

Speaking as a consumer, if the title in question was a new IP, I'd buy it. (The Nameless Mod on Unreal Engine 4 = I'm happy)

I'm more skeptical on remakes though; on one hand you have stuff like Resident Evil on Gamecube (where it's been remade and redone to the point where it's essentially a brand new game), on the other hand you have something like Halo Anniversary (same game but with better graphics)

BM falls more towards the Halo Anniversary kind of remake and while people may appreciate that, I feel it's not enough to warrant me repurchasing a game I already bought 10+ years ago

I'm happy that they secured a distribution agreement with Valve, but I do hope the "free" version will be available on Steam
