For quite some time I have wanted to start a blog on HL2 modding. I have plenty of experience but you won't find any released mods by me, because my projects never passed the threshold of having chances to release. I still want to show what I have learned through the years. Maybe it would be best to release a series of tutorials but I like ModDB as a forum for exchange of modders' information.

Maybe I'll give it a try with mod planning basics and then move on to mapping and modeling. I'd like to use images but they take so much time to do I have to consider whether I'm willing to do it at all or not.

In the mean time, check out my comments section for a preview of what I know.

Where have you been all those years. Forums posts such as yours were very much needed.

It's true I had a bit of break from game dev. But I'm back now and I'm better than ever before ;)

Anyway, Wraiyth, very shameful cheap shot with the screenshot comparisong with Black Mesa, gotta say I hate you for that. Black Mesa is one of the mods I'm looking forward the most because it's professional enough to be trusted to be released someday and it looks freaking nice. Some of their screenshots look awesome just like some of yours do. I was surprised you chose to compare this mod with that mod anyway, something personal going on? Or was there something in the previous posts to set you off to do such a comparison, I CBA to check that out actually.

Originally I commented that I didn't think BMS deserved a visual delight award for the media update for which it was given to them for. A rather large argument with a bunch of community members throwing in flames at me ensued, including a few personal attacks against myself and NightFall. That was pretty much the reason for the comparison. The entire issue was smoothed over months ago between myself and Kester anyway, so why it was raised I'm not sure. If you want to see the whole issue, go back a dozen pages or so on the BMS profile and read the entire thing. It was just a point where I was heated and, after the entire argument between myself and BMS, a comment like that really, really ****** me off.
As Mess said, we'd prefer if old issues were left to die. And, as I said three posts down, the issue was smoothed out not long after it happened.
