I am the lead developer of the Half Life 1 mod Deflections. Working for over 9 years with the GldSource engine, I have started back in 2005 creating a mod that will not feature something new or spectacular, in terms of coding, texturing or modeling. It will include only an interesting and complex storyline and good mapping. Due to the love we have for our mods, me, along with 23-Down, Neclipse and m82Sniper created the developing group InDeFi and work together now on the mod each one of us created-Deflections, Firestorm and The Infected. Make sure to visit our group's page and don't hasitate to sent a PM to me or to InDeFi directly. We are happy to help whoever is in need of anything regarding Half Life 1 and the GldSource engine. I am also a writer, a voice actor and a translator, eager to help whoever need help. Cheers!

The map looks really, really interesting! I like the atmosphere here. Can't wait to see what horrors lay hidden in the darkness...
Also, red emergency lights are perfect in such dark environments, make sure to add some (if you haven't already).

Keep going!

I really like maps that are set in the night, there were not so many in the original game or even in mods. Looks really interesting. Maybe add some debris on the road? The skybox is OK with me.

Really nice work, keep going!

Thanks for being loyal to 'Deflections' for all these years! I deeply appreciate it. Indeed, Half Life 1 mods are followed and played mostly by the aging HL1 community and a new trailer wont attract any new members. But I promised it to my trackers and it's not like it will take a lot of my time. Though I prioritize my mapping than my trailer-making :) I will try my best to release Deflections, but it is really hard since it is a one-man creation. See ya up ahead :)

That's a sweet looking Test Chamber! You have greatly improved it, but you managed to keep the original HL feel in it. Congrats!

I believe that it is neither bad, nor good. I mean, do modders have to put a price tag on their creations? Can't they just continue to distribute them for free? And I am sure they could still get donations via so many other ways (if they need money). At the bottom line, some teams create some great total conversions of games, working on their projects for hours and hours, without having the ability to legally ask for money. No matter who gets the most % of the money, modders can now have a legal benefit from their labors, while before they took nothing in return.

On the other hand, mods are the best, free way for a company to promote itself, the game it created and the engine it made it with. Everyone played even the most beta mods, because they were free. If people will start charging them, there will be (I believe) a 70% drop of players who will play the mods that are being made, thus less promotion for the companies. But, I say it again, IF the modders have to charge their mods. They could still distribute them for free and the problem is solved.

Didn't know you were on your own! I fully understand you. Going solo is very difficult and it needs a lot of free time and motivation. It would be nice to see a news article to see what you are planning to further add in the mod and even demonstrate this hunger system.

Don't worry about meeting any deadlines. Take your sweet time to complete the mod. I think anyone prefers quality over rushed stuff!

It would be great if you could make an 'extended version' of Blue Shift by porting the whole thing onto the Source engine, fix it's issues and add more maps so it will become longer. Just an idea though mate, your work seems great so far, keep going! :)

Man, you are planning to implement so many original and well made things into this mod I can't stop wondering why this is not the top HL1 total conversion right now. It would be nice if you'd compose a well written news article with new pics and maybe even a trailer, to attract more attention and even some help (if you need some, that is).

Keep going guys, I can not wait till Hazard: The Plague is finished! Good luck!

Looks really good! I do not know the purpose of the building, but I believe the walls are a bit too thick. The inside looks fine, the only thing that needs a little detailing is the outside of the building. I am eager to see the final version!

No problem mate, take your sweet time for this! I would gladly help, but there are so many mods I want to help out and I have so little time to do so. And not to mention that my mod takes most of that little free time :S

Good luck with WTBM and I hope you'll assemble a team soon enough!

The horse and trees following you around? That... that sounds utterly creepy. Like in 'The Shining' where the protagonist was turning around to see the bushes coming closer to him every time he looked back. Thank God it was just just a test. Or wasn't it? *Insert creepy music here*

I think 'The Volcano', 'HL-Echoes' and 'The Core' are the 3 top Half Life universe mods right now. Great work guys, I really like how you work with the GldSource engine. Keep going! Can't wait for the release.

Forgot to comment on the candle.
Great idea, when the 'energy' will be lowering, it will look like the candle's body burning out. Nice! Also, it would be nice that if the candle will reach 0%, it would not only leave you in darkness, but also cause some (burning) damage to the player.

Yep, the original Half-Life .wads have ...limitlesss... potential... :) You could use them in any scenario. The only boundary, as you said, is someone's imagination. The only case which I also did my own textures was for signs. As for the manor, damn that thing looks awesome!

If the alien cockroaches can do such damage in your mod, I'll make sure to avoid them this time around :S

This fits exactly to the atmosphere you are aiming for, good job (to find it and add it, since it was not created by you). It really reminds me of these cases in the US, where farmers would find their animals dissected with surgical accuracy, and they still do not know what did it. En.wikipedia.org

Great to see another news update so soon! And vehicles? I am eager to see how you've implemented that into the mod :) I like the HUD, I love the idea of 'drunkness for armor' and I can't wait for Barnaby to kick some weird-creatures' *****. The abandoned manor looks wicked. And I really don't want to stumble upon this horse... At least I hope it stays dead :S

As for the weapons, I believe you should release the demo with two of them, and if you and we, as the players, will feel that the gameplay would be more fun with more, then consider to add 'em.

Keep going mate!
