Hey its Sebastian Krist from Rise of the Triad!
Think about it. Does that make sense? Asking for a sequel for something that hasn't even been released yet is just a little greedy.
Well having a big object like yourself inside a bush tends to create a lot of shadows. :P
This mod was released. Why hasn't it been updated?
Reasons for you to complain. Valve does the following in which you stated in to me. "TO brad:
Developers are supposed to think like their community, and understand how their game will effect their community. If they make a large portion of their community dislike their decisions, then they are deciding wrong. Your acting as if a game developer has never been wrong before."
Valve is most noticeable at noticing and thinking like the community.
Just like what Valve does? The very company that has done it over and over, and so on.
Well, judging by these complaints, Modders (even those that haven't modded a thing in there life) are superior to Developers.
Doesn't change the fact that the addition of more weapons will greatly unbalance the original campaigns, hense the reason for a sequel. Though I do agree $50 is absolutely too much.
Its called Half-Life 2. They made it for the April Fools joke.
Uh! No! How good a game is, is based on who the developers are. Look at the MOB game. It uses CryEngine 2, and doesn't look all that great. Decent, yes, but not amazing. Your logic in thinking that because its capable of running on Consoles makes it inferior, is 100% wrong.
Sure Crysis doesn't run on consoles. So? What has that got to do with game engines? It doesn't.
Not really. You misread the part where they said it is scalable. You can have crappy graphics in a game when you have everything on low. All they have to do is having a thing called "OPTIONS".
Why is everyone saying this is a consolised version? Where the **** does it say that? Crytek is saying that the engine is getting bigger and bigger, and finally they are supporting (Not changing to) the console market.
This project NEEDS to become commercial. Like what NullSoldier said, this game is unique enough for valve to take an interest in. The look, the style, the gameplay. Everything is there to create something beautiful. A form of art one could say.
Keep up the good work.
Just Realized it! @_@ but no, Hilary would actually carry out destroying the planet. This Admin would just attempt, while Gorden shares his peaceful love.
I'm more of a Shippuden fan, but I guess Ill full heartily support this project. :D
Uh, you don't need anything. Its standalone. Download, extract all and play.
Hey its Western Shinobi from the D3d forums. Glad to see this project growing in popularity!
Agreed, but from what we saw in the trailer that looked like a next gen version of Bob Page.
Also check out the wiki
There is a lot in the teaser that hints at various things. Definitely worth a check.
To add to this, Art can also be a form of creativity with no limitations. Like before, games were struggling to r3each the age of which realism can be achieved. Now we have total creative control with the current level of technology. That is art.
Everyone here is making a simple idea into a complicated mess. Just take it with a grain of salt.
People don't understand the article. Games have been known for being formulaic and generalistic. By art, one means that total creativity is realized in the product. Art is not a robotic clone of another idea.
Also, by Art one can say art direction. I don't know why everyone here is bitching about what is art. This article pretty much sums it up perfectly.
@DeadlyContagion: About your PS, you do realize this article is based on new games right?
Thanks for the info Hammy. :)
This looks absolutely STUNNING! I don't know what people are complaining about, the graphics and so far from what Ive read, the gameplay is just great!!!
Since I already named some ID Tech 3 games, I'll name some Unreal ones.
Clive Barker Undying. You can easily do it as a mod. Obviously when you compare it to most of the mods released.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Klingon Honor Guard, Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green, Postal² Nuff said.
Unreal Tournament 2k4. Repackaged 2k3.
Red Steel 2. A little different from Red Steel.
Star Wars: Republic Commando. A unique hud obviously makes it good enough to be its own game.
Stop saying that the Game is just a reskinned and resold L4D.
Elite Force. Just a reskinned "ID Tech 3" engine. Oh but it has different weapons. Well you stated in another post that it isn't that hard to program in a new weapon.
Call of Duty. Redone models, different textures, different menu, replaced weapons and a simple addition of an Objective List.
Your argument is only flawed because you seem to ignore how different L4D2 is from L4D. There is so much changed underneath that it can be measured just about the same as most games based on another engine.
Lets go on.
Return to castle Wolfentstein. Oh my, its not in the future. Its during WW2. Must be very different game.
Or maybe all the games that were released as Gold editions with new features that can't be found in a patch. Oh wait, that doesn't matter.
Don't know about you, but you did say "The graphic quality is sufficient to a SDK patch. "
There we go again, you think differences between engines are only Graphical. My comparisons are only as flawed as yours. This is my very point.
If that was the case then almost all games share majority of its features with the original game, with very few new features.
"Okay this is my opinion but i want l4d2. I mean sure making it full priced might be kinda lame, but i will be more than happy to buy it. I dont care if they might not release updates to l4d. I will be perfectly content with the additions in the sequal." -Bloocheese565
"That's not even an opinion, that's stating exactly what your going to do with no backup or reason for any of it." -AlCool
So you say its an an opinion. Yet what he says is his opinion. Don't get me wrong, your not an idiot, but your post itself made no sense what so ever.
I don't know. Maybe the countless games that used the Quake 3 engine. Most of them were just games reskinned with new maps. Maybe they should just be mods released for free.
So in your world, a game can only reckon a sequel if its a totally different engine? Your a ******* idiot.
Your kidding me? There is more going on underneath the engine than just ******* graphics. Geez, I think this whole ordeal is just about everyone not seeing a huge graphical improvement with the game.
Wait, what? Source is a heavily modified Quake engine. The same modification in which L4D2 is doing to L4D. The difference? A heavy AI improvement. In your world, an improvement has to be graphically, else its not an update.
UT3 is pretty much just a very pretty UT2k4. Thats all. It actually could be a patch, but do they want to do it? No.
Just like any game. Do you really need it? No, but if you want it, then thats okay. Except in your world, everyone else's opinion is ****.
Just like any game. Except this is L4D. Its just that special to deserve a boycott.
Does change the fact that Valve will always be valve. There work will always show through as quality. Hence the reason why you are spoiled, for the fact that if your not fully satisfied beyond capabilities, everyone will be ****.
Oh no, maybe Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 2040 or whatever its called is just Battlefield 1942 reskinned and resold. Its still a very different game.
Or maybe Call of Duty. its just reskinned and resold. Based on what you say, even though L4D2 isn't a reskinned and resold game, all games is just that too.
Not to mention Valve already stated that they will still support L4D even long after the L4D2 release.
Like the Unreal Engine. Its the same technology and still didn't age well. GoW and Mass Effect aside.
That aside, I still feel that besides Crysis, the Source engine produces the more realistic environments in gaming. Everything else abuses Shaders like its candy.
Uh, no they didn't.
Of course Episode 2 didn't cost $50. I bet L4D2 will probably cost $30-$20.
Oh like that hasn't happened before. Oh wait, it has, hundreds of times before.
How many times have Amazon jumped the gun and posted incorrect content? Plenty of times. Think about it, the information hasn't come from the horses mouth.
Its amazon that state $50, not valve. Why is everyone BELIEVING IT?
Are you serious? Contributing to an ignorant boycott? I am contributing. I'm proving a counter argument. Else the whole discussion is biased...which no doubt is going on now. Good job gamer.
1 Year later. Just like Episode 2 of HL2 being one year of Episode 1.....not to mention, why the hell are you trusting Amazon? Steam never announced the price yet, not to mention a defined release date.
Exactly! Practically the whole game was revamped. Let the idiots prevail and the knowledgeable die.
This is the biggest let down ever, and I'm not talking about the game. Are you ******* serious people? How the community be so stupid. This is one of those times when everyone jumps on the bandwagon just becaused gamers think they know more than developers.
We are talking about Valve here, not EA. You guys are a huge disgrace. Just shut up.
Not to mention, that amazon post is hard to believe. Honestly L4D2 is no different than Half-life 2 episodes. Its a completely new game with similiar gameplay. Its has an enhanced engine which is reprogrammed enough that updating the original game could potentially break the campaigns.
This is PATHETIC.
I really love the technical drawings you guys have for both Architecture and Vehicles. Great work.
Everything is shaping up very well!
How many name changes has this mod been through. I missed mapping for this project.....or at least a previously named one.
Flashlight. Lower the shadows quality in the settings. Or don't use flashlight at all....which just isn't possible in the mod. lol
I'd have to say UDK. It is far superior in the department of accessibility by all members of a development team. Source just takes a bit more effort just to get something working in-game, not to mention it takes more work just to get static meshes working. Come on valve, make it easier just to import static meshes. Stop giving me the whole "Requires a bone" mess and qc bs.
Yeah. Great work though.
Overgrowth isn't a mod, but an actual game.
Thats awesome! Though, I don't understand how 1.0 is considered a beta when it isn't even the final product. :/
Nah, I say keep it. The developers have a reason for everything. I doubt they would add a random logo in some unusual location.
It includes Slums1.
Honestly, this is as if Black Mesa said it will change direction and only be a remake of Half-Life Deathmatch. Seriously, it is a big blow to a lot of the fans.
Sure, do what you want, but again, taking such a drastic move can really put a lot of fans out.
Don't forget, Coop will be much harder than Single-player. You have to put a lot more work into making things work for each and every player.
As much as I disagree with your decision, this change is your choice.
Thanks for confirming Armanguy. This is moddb. There are so many mods/maps that people try to sell as there own, even if they are stolen.
Though, I trust your word. At least you bothered to comment here.
Again, thank you.
For the video, since I'm thinking that your trying to create a slide effect. Check out Fallout 3, and the pre-menu/menu bg effect. Try to make the slides move downward while it becomes bright. It looks good as it is, but the effect isn't as clear. It mostly relies on the sound to give you an idea of whats going on.
Good luck nonetheless.
haha, wow, its been so long since I read the book. I forgot about that part too!
I might give Simon a shot.
I do both acting and cg modeling, but at the moment I'm using my modeling skills on a undisclosed company project. I'll definitely do a couple of lines of dialog and mail it over to you guys. Hopefully you get someone soon for the position!
I await the release!
Eeeww, haha those filler are so annoying. Thankfully I watch Dattebayo subs.
STORM! YOUR SOUL IS MINE!!!!!
Nice mod. This may ge me to buying Halo on the pc. Now if only Halo 2 was moddable (not from my knowledge) I would have a good day for gaming. :D
Weird it looks like the Baby Masher from the horror project "Periculum" that closely resembles this game (and the name) from long ago. Sarah brought it to my attention. lol, damn I wish we copyrighted the content. >_<
I'd have to agree ImTheDarkcyde, but remember, that could cause some Copyright complications so I'd say stay with the current name.
Great idea guys! I can't wait to see a beta for this soon! ^_^
Did nothing except update the SDK. I can see no difference in Hammer, nor is there anything in the sdk that talks about HDR. :S
