I am The Evina. I do a little bit of everything from making maps for Cry of Fear and Source games to writing fiction novels to programming and web design and many other things. I like to review Source mods. A perfect 10 is reserved for mods that blow my mind. This is a list of mods I have contributed to: G String (voice acting [announcer]), Aperture Beginnings (voice acting [announcer]), Cry of Fear (creator of the custom campaign "The Hole").

Theevina @ Excuse the delay

Take all the time you need. (And backup your work in as many places as you can.) We'll be patient ;)

It seems the problem is a texture issue. The 6s on the bottom should be 9s.

I found the official answer to be Down Down Up Down Up Up.

Sorry for the confusion. :(

The numbers should add up to 21 top and bottom where the levers point. There is a spoilers text file in the installation. The answer should be found in there.

I can't stand the foggy overlay in part 3. Is there any way to remove it?

Why is the file size for a demo so big? Especially when it looks like it contains mostly vanilla hl2 assets.

I played this again after playing ep3. It's still very fun.

Ok I finally finished it. Well done. :)

The review will take a while to write, though. I have a lot to say about it.

This is like two mods in one. The first half is Leon's typical random mess of excitement to find Dr. Kleiner and discover how useless he is.

Then the trip to the Borealis finally happens. I'm slightly disappointed Gordon goes alone, but I really love how you designed the area. I'm still only at map 23 or so.

These are Combine and not covert Aperture assassins, right?

My impressions of the mod so far are excellent. I will definitely review it when I'm finished.

Ignore the trolls, Leon. I think these noobs have been spoiled by professional mods like Black Mesa. They don't have the taste to appreciate something like your work. They probably expected it to literally be a free full-fledged Valve game. Anyone who believes that has to be insane.

Also I like the cut scenes. They really add character to the mod.

It's amazing what you've accomplished almost entirely by yourself.

This is so tragic. Your birthday and planned release day and your mother dies? That sucks. :(

You were always supportive of me and my mod. So I'm here to tell you I support you. Take your time, relax, and forget everyone and everything unimportant until you are better.

Theevina @ Portal Stories : Mel

As strange as this is, I seemed to have trouble locating the cubes on some puzzles because I expected the first would auto-drop like in a lot of Portal maps. The most frustrating thing was trying to figure out how to open a door with a second button when I only had one cube. The solution was to push the cube-drop button and bring it over. I felt so stupid. It was completely unnecessary to the puzzle anyway. Auto dropping boxes would make a good improvement.

But the mod is still without a doubt 10/10

I am working on a new update (version 1.1). This will remove the first puzzle.

Jump to go faster. (I personally thought it was easy, as well as the testers, but apparently none of the players think so. I'm sorry.)

The resource file might not be loaded. Make sure the mod folder is named "belowice" exactly.

The reason sprint is disabled is because the player doesn't have the HEV suit (and doesn't need one). Many mods like this omit the HEV suit. And as for the jumping I never had any tester have a problem with it.

But you can skip the intro by doing "map belowice" in the console. You won't miss much of anything. Alternatively noclip past the barrier. Since a lot of people don't like this I'll patch the map later.

In the big room at the end of belowice_2 with the staircase leading to the top. It's on the floor.

I'm wondering whether I should release a development package (for learning purposes) showcasing my new entities, incredible optimization skills, and other things. How many people would even care about that?

I'm sorry that's not more obvious. You have to run to press both of them. It's a timed thing.

There are some boxes stacked up under the staircase. Smash them and look there.

Bypass the security by pressing both buttons rapidly. You'll have to run.

I should really write a walkthrough :/

But if you STILL can't find it you can skip the intro by typing "map belowice" in the console. You won't miss much at all.

Since the mod wasn't tested as well as it should have been (due to a lack of interested testers who looked like they knew what they were doing) I'll probably release an improved version 1.1 later on when I get more feedback.

I don't discourage anyone from playing version 1.0, though. No major bug has been reported yet.

There should be an item to pick up in the snow, though I suppose it might be a little hard to find.

I had trouble finding enough good testers for this mod so I had to assume a lot of things.

The beta release has been deleted in preparation for the full release.

As a reminder, Source SDK Base 2013 SP will be required for this mod. It will no longer work on Episode 2.

Theevina @ Penumbra: Necrologue

My impression of the mod so far is not so great. I've been stuck over and over again. Why do I keep going through endless halls that look the same and they have the same names too, "Laboratory" and "Research" for example. The story has been bland too. And the puzzles are often hard because they make no sense. They have no explanation or hints. I liked the original Penumbra games but I don't think I'll be able to finish this. Sorry :/

Theevina @ V2 progress... it's coming, God willing

Judging by the first version I played, along with these videos, this mod comes closer to being true horror than any horror game I've played.

This world is merciless, depressing, and disgusting. The creator ignores every taboo known to mankind to make sure the player becomes immersed in it and stays immersed for a long time.

After playing it I want to cling to my mediocre life now with its little problems and be more grateful that we haven't degraded to that level (yet).

Few other mods or games could come close to holding this much emotional power.

What do you do when you get the rope? I can't believe I'm stuck at the beginning of the game running around for hours finding nothing.

Please add some more details in empty Combine halls, and some light models so that the glowing spots on ceilings make sense, then you're just about perfect.
