Just another dood on ModDB :D.
yeah there is actually an error with the smoothing groups on the face but shhh don't tell anyone :)
Also that texture needs to be fixed for the chain mail. But just didn't have enough time before the announcement!
You can help support us when the game releases in August ;)
Thank you for saying so! :D
you maniac! Now go play the mods :P
Take your childishness elsewhere - banned.
I'd have to agree with treat. The slow pans might have been justified if their was some custom assets or defining architecture involved rather than a reconfiguration of stock Portal stuffs. I'm all for vague teasers, but there's no sense of mystery and/or story of what's to come. The average gamer would just think this is some Portal fan-movie.
Durian is also a fruit, I kept thinking that while putting this together...
Great interview! Don't see the concept art though...
The best = people willing to work with us to increase their exposure. Devs have to put in effort to make this work.
Indeed it is.
I thought the same thing, but if he's planning to release more episodes the story can developed along with them and retroactively inserted into previous chapters (like The Ball).
Great article, thanks for detailing the creation.
Playing the game is orgasmic for the eyes. I tried turning down the graphic intensity so I could follow the position of my ship better, but it wasn't the same. Also lol'd at the tagline "Games as art debate approaching".
Should have made a release post: Moddb.com
Please do more of these journal style entries. Really love how they show your thought process.
Need more info on what this mod does.... please edit the description.
Is there english subtitles?
Thanks for all the comments guys. I have to agree not completely happy with the font (its the 'official' ModDB one) but I'll play around with it some more for my next article.
Daystranger, not a big fan of the spread on that drop shadow myself - too distracting, I find.
What do you guys think of the new image layouts? Good or too much?
Haha. God damn that warped pinky, gets me every time.
Awesome article, very well formatted too! More and more it sounds like half the challenge of making a game is not over-extending yourself and working within your limits.
I dunno, I myself preferred the more cartoony look. All this fancy new lighting really diminishes the nostalgia hit and really changes the mood. I think the renderer would be great for projects developed with it in mind but personally I am looking forward to playing DTA with graphics more similar to the games that inspired it. There's no shame in not using the updated renderer - creativity in constraints!
Massive! Awesome work.
upload this as an image to your gallery.
This game rocks! I got hooked playing a preview copy until I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore.
*edit* I didn't even know it was mod-able haha. Indie are welcome on our site even if they aren't :D
Great video, love the end :P
Clem is at it again, great work!
Reading this just makes me want to get back into HW2 again - when I have time :P
I'm psyched for this too!
Awesome article that does MEC 2 justice, thanks to Bird_of_Prey for his hard work!
Why do you always get your stuff in the mail before me? Kangaroo mail is faster than I thought, I guess...
Awesome update, I've got my eye on you now :P
Place your bets?
Tatsuro won't like mod, it has katanas :P
Yeah, it's been a while since we had a new poll.... poor poll box was feeling neglected.
Pew-pew! Sorry, false alarm.
Damn, was looking forward to it guys. Make sure to do a fancy release post when it does go live and we'll make sure it gets into the header :D
So you reviewed the demo? LOL
Fixed - removed the botched links.
This one will melt too.
Nice, post a media update for the new mission!
6 weeks with 11 people, but yeah definitely.
images are borked
Thanks for posting this. While it will not make the front page, it will be archived to the profile so that people searching for the true story will be able to see it for themselves.
This is so whacky, I don't whether to love it or hate it :P It's certainly different.
Don't forget to make a new profile for it if you release it separately!
Whatchu talkin' bout Willis?
Holy crapola!! I can't keep up with all these great mod releases and game releases happening so close to each other! Great work guys.
Haha, that pic of the T-Rex on its back just cracks me up. Great work guys!
Shame about EIR, good to see you have many guys still willing to pick up the pieces though. Make sure to post all the essential stuff here on ModDB as we won't be going down anytime soon :P
While I don't agree with this review, it is here because the author took the time to compose his thoughts with more than a cursory regard for formatting, punctuation and grammar. I hope that all responses to this review follow the same example.
Well Sandbox 2 is a full editing suite, this will just be a level editor.
It has to do with you browser permissions and how it handles different file types.
Visit the official website ;)
Yeah, sorry guys, the ModDB flash video encoder can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it EXCEPT for the latest version of .wmv codecs.
Awesome review Myles! Take note, people this is how you do it. Very little editing from me. Expect to see this in the flash headline rotation soon.
Just so you know, there's 2 I's in original. I've corrected it in you mod title and downloads.
I can't wait... but Fileplanet.com, come on now ;) Great work guys!
HAHA, why not upload to ModDB?
Please embed linked thumbnails into your post next time if you want to make the front page.
Congrats, but you need to fix your links. Can we watch any of the matches?
this has already been uploaded!
Good stuff, but I've archived this as it seems to be older news and we generally don't allow two postings from the same mod on the front page.
Fill out this profile with some media!
Please make a profile for your mods.
no preview image = lazy
Great to hear, good to see some open collaboration between teams. Doesn't happen enough IMO.
These are only mods that are listed on ModDB. If you know of any other ones, tell the creators to list on ModDB or create a profile for them yourself. PM me and I'll add the mod to the list!
Let's try this again. :D
add this under MOD profiles not as a game. Thanks.
please post this as an addon to counter-strike
please post this as an addon.
Currently have Mr. Kadish - one of the guys behind Killing Floor - lined up for the show. Maybe afterwards we can get a couple servers going for just ModDB players :D
What am I looking at?
Ummm.... that's not me in Red Alert Idol.
Don't be shy about detailing exactly what you love/hate about them here in the comments. Suggestions are welcomed!
Please add this as a mod under Half-life.
Just want to send out an extra thanks to Diego for getting together with me for this feature! Expect more of these interviews in the future.
I just recently cut them all off :(
they work for me
Haha, YES you should :P
you already have a profile for this, stop making new ones or face bannage.
Sorry, this one is archived. You have to share the front page with others :D
Guys, please learn to embed thumbnails of the images linking to a larger gallery image. This is too messy to stick on the front page. If you fix it up, send me a PM and I'll re-authorize it.
Yup, I've played the preview build and that's what it looks like. Although the last scene is probably put together especially for the trailer, the rest can be achieved through gameplay.
This is the last time I'm going to archive this post. If you delete and repost it again, this mod will be deleted. Please compose better media releases if you wish to hit the front page.
Join it now and get notified of special events concerning HL2 mods! Steamcommunity.com
So then you must have not liked this episode :P
What mod is this supposed to be linked to?
I accomplished my objective then :)
Megaupload is very inconvenient for many users, why not upload to Mod DB and stream it so it's easy to access and gets many more views?
Awesome mod with many gametypes.
correction: Stardock published Sins of a Solar Empire and developed Galactic Civilizations II. Sins was developed by Ironclad. Just thought I'd get that in there before anyone else.
Damn, those pine trees look great! Just add rain and you'll make the perfect North American West Coast outdoors mod :P
Please post this as a mod not a game.
Excellent! Thanks for posting this.
Good work guys, not a Trekkie but the quality of this post is excellent!
Where do you see that?
Still working on an official schedule.
I would have preferred this as a review.
Great work! Props to Lit Fuse for taking machinima to the next level.
PR and marketing makes a huge impact no matter what the content of your project. A lot of teams underestimate this and learn the hard way. It's doubly important if you are developing a multi-player game/mod, you have to foster a community around your project to keep players active. There's no shame in being a hustler in addition to being a developer. If the content released in press updates is worthwhile and easy to digest, you'll reap the benefits.
It doesn't have to be a total conversion, just gameplay that explores a new direction from what the average gamer is used to.
This kind of stuff is what we wouldn't mind seeing more of on the site. If any of you guys come across any console mods out there, get them up on Mod DB and share the love!
do not upload torrents
"20 minutes... outside... pufferfish"
you guys should really link you images from your moddb profile so media releases get to the front page.
Top marks for presentation guys, looking good!
Great job guys, among the most consistent mods out there in terms of quality and releases. Good luck with MOTY!
Wow dood, amazing stuff...
haha, same here. I was one of those guys who left with a bad aftertaste for this mod. But all this press I'm seeing for it (they even got a video listed on gametrailers.com!) is gonna bring me back for a another go.
Are you implying ugly women can't mod?
This is a great idea, I'll be there!
This looks amazing!
Thanks for all the encouragement guys. We've made incredible progress over the last week... stay tuned for more updates...
just unzip it into your max payne 2 dir.
HAHA, I dunno what's worse, the April Fool's jokes or the puns that follow in the comments :P
yes it was
I notice the terrain is coming along too, awesome.
Purchased. I also notice it's number one int he top sellers list on Steam right now. Congrats!
How did we bash it?
I think he means the Warhead SDK
I'll check it out. As for variety- we talked about FPS, RTS, RPG, a 2d sidescrolling game and a SPORE mod to boot. Can't fault us for that on this episode! :P
It looks awesome, I'll have to pick it up and give it a go.
Ah yeah we missed that one, sorry dudes.
You're too kind, sir. I've been sick for 2 MOTYs in a row - I think its going to be tradition now.
You can't read numbers?
Your comments are aimed at introducing all sorts of technicalities that would serve to disqualify Dead Before Dawn (among many other mods) and make MOTY a convoluted mess of rules. The purpose behind player's choice is for people to individually discern the entertainment value behind all mods, no matter how small or large, and nominate/vote for their favorites.
Saying the winner isn't a mod is the most damaging assumption you can make provided you do not know all the information behind it or what goes into making a full campaign for L4D.
Has it been released yet?
Can you be sure you know all the details of the mod?
Have you looked exactly what goes into making a L4D CAMPAIGN?
Not pretending to defend any of the choices of MODDB'S COMMUNITY, but simply stating that you should respect the winners and know what goes into making the mod if you want to hash out specifics and start introducing your own definitions. Please refrain from making broad assumptions. Thanks.
Fact is, this is what you guys voted for - members votes were the main determining factor for all the finalists you see. I bet everyone thinking Neotokyo should have won didn't cast their vote for it. The results weren't a landslide by any means.
It's a race in the sense that you can establish record times by just playing by yourself. Just like how you can compete in Mirror's Edge time trial runs, yet i wouldn't call that game multiplayer :P
Yeah, but you don't have to be a **** about it. Also Celestial Impact is entirely from scratch.
Yeah, Henley didn't have enough bandwidth/time to download the game again, unfortunately. He had to go with "found" footage, didn't realize it was from the beta until too late. Sorry! I dunno if anyone notices, but the order is a bit out of whack too. Iron Grip: Warlord should be second but whatever. Late night editing will yield occasional mistakes like that :P
If you guys can't find an empty server and just want to host your own game: port-forward 30000,7777 and 6500 (UDP only) - ignore the stupid warning message the game gives you. I host games doing that and people can still join on me (using the Steam version of UT3).
If you go to the mods section of a person's profile, the stats all seem to defer to unreleased even if some of the created mods are released.
Thanks for the support! ...And stay tuned for updates ;)
