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").

Missing textures often show up as a reflective light shade of gray. It's weird.

Thanks. I'm just switching over work to one of my other abandoned projects for now. Rest is probably what I need the most.

And I do have my mod backed up in many placed. A bad computer crashed years back and I learned to keep my data safe since then.

Part of the problem is that I have trouble getting what's in my mind translated to brushes on a map.

The other part is that this airplane moves, vibrates, has sounds, and does several things on the inside. I can't get those to work too well. Every time I fix something it breaks another thing. And then when I fix that thing, the first thing breaks. So naturally I don't have much time for detailing in my maps.

I just feel unintelligent and sluggish, but it's probably normal. Thanks.

I really love your mods by the way.

Ok, I finished it now. It took me only about... 5 hours?

This is by far the most underrated mod I have played to date. (And I've played a lot.)

Tremendous fun. Great job.

I just downloaded it today and didn't know that it had dlls. Unfortunately I have the SteamPipe update. Is there anyway to get this to work with that? Deleting the dlls won't allow it to work, will it?

I am losing my mind with this whole Steampipe/SDK issue. All that stuff I wanted to do is just going to have to wait, and wait, and wait. Valve time really does suck. :(

So... the mod is dead.

Did they do that or did the site admins do that?

Theevina Jun 17 2013, 1:05pm says:

Attention all beta testers! I found out how to get the mod to work with the steampipe update!

1. Replace gameinfo.txt with this one Pastebin.com provided to me by d10sfan.
2. Delete maps/background01.bsp. This map is broken and will cause crash on launching the game.
3. Do not die. Saves (including autosaves) do not appear to work for me.
4. You will be disconnected at the level change between belowice.bsp and belowice_final.bsp. When this happens, please enter the mod again and in the console type "map belowice_final". That should just about do it.

I can't fix these bugs until Valve repairs the SDK. They are not my fault. Thank you.

The beta testers have been sent the mod. The full release shouldn't be too far away, unless they dig up some bigger issues.

Except the people who made Research and Development are smarter and more talented at mapping than I am.

But thank you for tracking.

One of the main themes of the mod is feeling like this place is abandoned. So naturally some places look kind of unused or empty. But I agree about the lights which I'll keep adjusting.

The beta should be ready by this weekend. After that, I don't think it should be too long before the full release. (Unless there is a big problem with something.)

My excitement over this mod has not decreased. I have complete faith in you.

Maybe we should convince a site admin to clear the reviews out from the first version? I didn't even play it yet to know that it doesn't deserve any "1" ratings. If the new version is so different then it would make sense.

I can't help but express my concern about this. I'm torn. On one hand I loved Amnesia, its atmosphere, and story, and everything about it. Incredible. And on the other hand I am not very fond of The Chinese Room's mods. They are using the word "experimental" again and I don't know if that's a good thing or not.

There isn't any dll. I can't debug the SDK correctly.

That means that it should use the Episode 2 dll. If the game works, why would a mod not work with it? I don't know much about Linux, though, and support for it on Steam is kind of still new.

Theevina May 24 2013, 12:12pm replied:

This mod won't need voice actors. What I need most is translators. Later in the mod there is a lot of text.

The truth is I have no idea when the mod will be finished. I am working really fast but I won't release the full finished product until I'm sure it's the quality I want. I'll probably only give an exact date of release only a day or two before.

I loved Limbo, and this looks fun, but if it is essentially the same type of experience except with a stick figure as the character then I would probably only buy it as free.

Please forgive me if this sounds rude, because it's not intended to be that way at all.

Your work looks incredible, you really nail down the atmosphere and details perfectly. But I'm just curious, how are you doing with optimization? Don't take this in a bad way, but I cut off maybe 8 megabytes of that street map you worked on for me. Sure it was just you assisting me and you probably didn't want to spend that time and energy into that. I really did appreciate that help, really. But my computer is not the latest and greatest, and if a single collab map of yours had to be split into multiple maps which were still each bigger than the average CoF map, then I wonder how I will be able to play this one. Maybe it's because I'm OCD but I'm pretty good at doing tedious things like that. If you need any help with removing unneeded faces or grouping func_walls I'll be here. And I promise I wouldn't sacrifice any detail at all. I hope it would allow you to spend more time on what you do best.
