I typed 80+ WPM in middle school (Mavis Beacon, I think it was??). I haven't checked since
Very impressive depth-of-field effects.
Hey I'm sorry but I'm not staff anymore. I became one by responding to a post by an administrator that ModDB was in need of feature writers. I'm not sure if they need any additional people at the moment, but your best bet would be getting in touch with INtense!, as he is the guy running the show here... or at least, I think he is. He was when I was a staff member, anyway. Good luck!
The foreground looks absolutely amazing. The mountains in the background do look a little less impressive.
Overall though, fantastic work!
I have 8 invites, email me sangye.ij[at]gmail[dot]com for one
This almost looks like concept art... ******* amazing!
Love the system, I want more points too though :P
I mean, I did write the most read (and commented, though many were my own) review in the history of the site.
28 Months definitely lends itself better to making a mod than 28 Weeks, but I preferred the first movie by a long shot.
Good luck on this, I'll be watching your progression closely :)
Awesome, where'll you be studying at? And what will you be studying?
I'm officially declared as a Psychology major, but I've been taking a lot of classes in [pre-]Medicine and Philosophy as well over the past two years. If I do continue, I'd probably finish the pre-med curriculum and do Neuro-Science at the graduate level.
Silly sally, where do'st you dilly dally?
I'm doing really good. I'm going to be taking some time off from college (maybe even permanently) after the end of this term, to work a construction job. The pay is good and honestly at this point I think it's a more worthwhile endeavor than sitting around pretending to be learning things that in all likelihood I'll never need to know, so yeah, I'm pretty excited about it ;p
junkie? no, I'm just a polydrug abuser ;p
*hugs* right back at ya, how are you!?
Haha, indeed! :)
you should hit me up on AIM some time... "sanjgij"
big lebowski ftw!
So how was bicycle day? I'm more than making up for missing it, today! ;p
What an amazing, dark and moody atmosphere that you guys have created here. I'm definitely reinstalling for this mod :)
haha yeah man.. wish I could celebrate it but real life has been owning my face this month >,<
imagine playing as a bestial carnivore, tearing apart your prey and tasting their lymph
that'd be a quality gaming experience
Ennui, what's your spiel? If you have a squabble with mikejkelley, here's hardly the place to advertise it.
"Pot is ok!", but mushrooms is essential!
That's debatable ;p

yes, quite! ^^
I think that they should be allowed to do as they will (same goes for everyone), but that there is something to be said for originality as well. Nonetheless, I voted option #1.
All middle-aged people are pedophiles..?
Nice review! I'd have rated it higher myself, but I can see where you are coming from.
'grats on the release guys, can't wait to try it out.
wow, that looks amazing
Those pictures are beautiful!~ The second one is just incredible; you are very lucky to have a concept artist like that :)
I love it!
Did you modify the game engine? The lighting effects on the characters does not look like Half-Life 2; it looks like you either significantly upgraded the lighting portion of the engine, or maybe exaggerated the bump mapping on the characters? Whatever you did, it looks great!
Can't wait to read the Blizzard interview (!!).
Grats guys, mDB is progressing like.. well, I can't think of a suitable metaphor off hand, but suffice to say: this is awesome!!
Looks awesome.. the texture work is amazing!
I'd like to see black & white, with red's multiplied.. It'd have a Sin City-esque flair to it, and I think it'd look great.
Links do not work! Get them fix0red!
Yeah, this game totally rocks. I was very very impressed with it. Definately worth checking out. A testament to the innovation and skill of the indie game development community!
God, I am so freaking addicted to this game. I bought it 1 1/2 months ago, and already have a lvl32 rogue, a lvl30 druid, another lvl15 rogue, a lvl9 hunter, and tons of lvl5-s that I created pretty much just to guarantee that I'd get the names.
ROX0RZ MY BOX0rZ!
Yay! It doesn't look good, it looks excellent. Cannot wait for this to be released!
Congrats on the release!! :D
I don't really want to publicly release any shots, but I'd be happy to PM you a screenshot or two next week.. :)
That looks absolutely fantastacizzle. Excellent work! :D
Looks great! Definately watching this. :D
Great concept art, though the name should be "A HL2 Modification", as "An" only comes before words that start with a vowel, or a pseudo-vowel (i.e. some cases of 'Y').
Other than that slight typographical error, I really like the sound of this.. If the atmosphere/mood of the complete mod is anything like the concept art for it, it'll be a real success!
Good luck :)
You can shoot anything that moves, and even things that don't :D
This looks cool.. I'm watching it.
W000000t! 'TIS RELEASED!!!
I shall download this as soon as I'm back at my other house, and have reinstalled Max Payne 2.. This looks review worthy :)
Awesome stakejacker :D
This is looking to be a VERY entertaining game.. Have you thought at all of signing with a publisher? I'm sure that many would be interested.
Sounds awesome :)
Yeah, it was pretty aweful :|
P.S. Bryan, thanks for the heads up on the broken link. It's fixed now :)
This game should be fun, but like the guest, those screenshots do worry me, particularly the level of detail (or lack thereof) on the character and weapon models. Look at those fingers.. Yuch!
I just wanted to say that "Siege!" is an excellent concept for a mod, and if I weren't so busy with my own projects, I'd volunteer to help. The people who insulted you in your thread are known to be immature, and do not represent the whole of this community. I apologize for their actions, and hope that this mod will succeed.

Pure awesomeness, as usual. The current MOTM is about to expire, so get in touch with me via MSN, so we cant discuss an award, and some features connected to it.
Ah, but if you shoot the balloons, do they pop?
Awesome work garry. Simply awesome :D
Lol, mario is lurking nearby, waiting to pillage the mushroom village!
Thanks for the compliments guys! They are, along with the trees and the other sprites in the other gallery images, my first pieces of pixel art.
Those are some gorgeous models. Incredibly good use of polygons! :D
Oh that sucks. Sorry I didn't notice :(
I've been working on the engine on and off since Spring, but only started on the actual game a little more than a month ago.
Thank you for the compliments, grasn :)
Your mods (especially Babylon City!) are looking very nice!
Thanks guys! It is a very fun game... While I maintain that it isn't too innovative, I changed my overall opinion since I wrote the intro page, and now really enjoy it.
Hey guest #2, lets see you do better ;)
No offense, but you both spelt "offense" wrong :P
Those concepts look pretty good, and I am eagerly awaiting more pictures. Good luck!
P.S. Since when is does any futuristic game automatically look like Halo?
Wow, that guest is so cool. He can find errors in a modder's writing! Ironically, I bet that that guest has never even attempted a mod.
Perhaps he can only feel good about his "unmodded" (yep, I'm hereby coining that as an adjective describing someone who hasn''t made a mod) self, by pointing out utterly trivial errors in the posts of far superb "modded" individuals.
Agreed. But I will participate anyway, because I enjoy making wallpapers, even if they usually end up pretty sucky.
Oh it certainly is INtense. MoDB is the greatest thing to happen to the mod community since Half-Life.
Why thank you Darkcyde :)
We're trying to get our awesome modellers back, who quit a month ago... If they do come back, it'll look even better!
First that I've heard of Twilight War, but I really like what I see, especially with the Source Engine! If they pull a Guild Wars on us, I might actually get it!
(Guild Wars: v/n. The action of canceling monthly fees of a MMORPG)
This mod is going to rock, if you start advertising it at sites, and recruit people. I love Apocalypse Now, and it is a perfect base for a FC mod. You have all my blessings on your endeavours!

cold-fusion, those models look great! while you could certainly do some optimizations on them to reduce the poly counts, they look awesome!
This mod is gonna rock, guys... Crete is an awesome place, and is a perfect setting for a game, especially on the FC engine.
Good luck guys!
wow, complements on a job done so ueber well, that it is better than 99% of all retail games you can buy... You guys are so incredibly talented, you should really look into making a retail game...
GOOD FREAKING JOB!
'tis a retail game, foo (j/k, this is afterall a mod site, so thats a rational mistake)
I will have to do a fair amount of editing to the original story, to make it fit in a game well. The setting will be identical to the book, but the "underground" groups will need to fight a bit more in the mod, to make it a little more interesting...
Thx for the compliment tho!
Yeah, clockwork orange is an amazing book/movie as well... But that really wouldn't fit in a mod (hehe)
On a different subject, a few hours after setting the mod up, I already have received three offers for hosting, so it sounds like people are fairly interested. The most notable of these came from corrosivestudios.net, a new webhost for HL2 modders, with very impressive features...
Now we just need a team dedicated enough to materialize the concept ;)
well, it is designed for jungles, but it can handle indoor environments pretty well... I don't see why it couldn't support cities, so yes, i think it is probably pretty good for cities. In fact, DrugWars will feature MANY city maps ;)

its looking pretty sweet :)

I gotta admit that this is an excellent promotional quiz. If I had the funding, I would do something similiar for my mod (DrugWars)
However, there is a significant flaw in it: The use of search engine for the answers. This is the reason that I did not enter the competition. I would have felt like I am stealing the games from you. I could have also done it without a search engine, but I know little to nothing about gettisburg, let alone your mod (but now that I have seen it , I must admit it looks pretty darn impressive)...
Any google search with the right keywords could turn up the answers to even some of the personal trivia questions.
If you are going to give the games out to the one with the highest score (and not the one with a specificly set score), cheating would not hurt you (because you would be giving the game out anyway), but it would be unfair anyway...
In any case, your mod is looking pretty sweet ;)
Where oh where did mic go?
The nolf community is calling for you!
Come by TGF, man!
P.S. I only found this site recently, but I have played through your mod many times... its KICK ARSE!
