You don't have to learn to mod anymore. You just have to learn how to make games, which in turn help you mod games. People want to create original content now, leading into making games they can sell and not mods that require the ownership of a game. Different kind of world now. I don't mind it.

They were also made before mods changed the core code of the game so they these were a lot more compatible than you would think.

So my question is, how does the explosion end? You have the transition between the start and end but how does it transition between end to nothingness?

Based on the amber glowing symbol of the Dharma logo, I would say you must solve the Aperture and/or Black Mesa first before you get an inkling of what the center one is.

I don't know about you but I think this mod is translating it well perfectly. From the looks of it, the maps are pretty faithful without an overkill on making it look like Doom 3 or some modern game. Its like a Doom 3 version of what Doomsday Engine did to the classics. Nothing wrong about that.

This is actually a really cool project. I would love it to get some more love from the community. One can say this makes Doom an open world game (Since it makes the whole game one giant map). Although it would be cool to see if its possible to tie maps together to make it one open world project. Doom Strife. Anyways, cool idea. Looking forward to trying it out.

What are you talking about? Programming is the biggest part of this project, else it'll just look like a mess. Doom RPG is completely different from the usual Doom game.

I absolutely love the logo. I take it thats the new logo? If so, I'm glad it is being rebooted. I'd love to see where it goes as I love 'the Arrival', but I'd like to see something new done with the mythos.

Thank you so much for revealing the true nature of the Source Engine. This short alpha made me feel like I was playing one of those adventure mods in Crysis. This is a grand feat. Beautiful lens flares, lens dirt, fancy bloom, and spectacular lighting. THe environmental lighting is probably the best part of this mod, aside from making a mod that feels like its own, without being overbearing in the horror department. *cough*Hellsound*cough*grey*cough*

Im looking forward to seeing the project progress. I kinda want to get back into Half-Life 2 modding, but damn, Unity and UDK are taking up way more of my time and provide a fruitful pipeline for my projects....Was most of the visual effects done through extensive programming? Or did you just reveal the features provided in the current Source Engine build?

Now that I played Alpha 5, I think i'm satisfied enough to hold out until the final release. :D Thanks for such a fine experience on the source engine. There have been real talent showing lately for this engine...(I'm tired of all the 'Half-Life' universe generic mods and abundance of multiplayer games)

Usually when you move the mouse, you change the camera orientation, revealing the environment. Walking around doesn't change the orientation. It is facing the same direciton, so the engine doesn't generally need to load/unload any data as often as looking around. Its common sense that this will reveal fps issues. Try turning off some of the features in the 'Estranged Options' menu.

I don't know if many people noticed but the references go way beyond just LOST and Portal. I can really appreciate this mod. I was surprised by the shear length of it...sure I would normally consider that a con as so many of the best mods or short and sweet. I made an exception for this beauty.

The mod was difficult in a good way and some absolutely terrible ways. Some cool ideas were bogged down by bad execution (electric fuse maze) and (impossible visual cues).

Other than that, I really can't wait to play Hatch 18. I really like the direction the demo went so I think all should be good.

Don't forget, include some puzzles which involve investigation and translation. Having various paths to get to one point can allow different difficulties in paths/puzzles. So for instance, one path may be easier, while the hardest path requires you to analyze glyphs/paintings that hint at various elements of the puzzle.

So much can be said if you execute this correctly. Best of luck.
