As some of you might know, I've done quite a bit of work with the Source engine over the years before eventually just dropping off the radar for a couple of years. Looking back on some of my work, I decided to document my work and give a general opinion from an older self.

Project 1:
Still Only in Saigon

This mod was intended to be a proper remake of the Half-Life 1 mod Heart of Evil. There was a Source port of the mod, but I wanted to take that one step further. I wanted to remake it much in the same way as Black Mesa was a remake of Half-Life. Looking back, I laugh at how bad this was. I never had a team ready. Hell, I tried to get permission to use the code from the Source port to compensate. As for the mapping? It was bad. REAL bad. Just look.

Looking at this stuff, I honestly think it looks worse than the original GoldSrc version. Needless to say, this got canned pretty quickly. Perhaps for the better.


Project 2:
Half-Life 2: Dark Legacy (originally The Bunker)

After that was done, I decided to take on a modification set in the Half-Life universe. Why not? There's a massive amount of lore that can be explored in the universe. The premise was set about one year before Gordon Freeman came to City 17, where a group of Resistance members have been looking for a lost weapon in a bunker built from the seven hour war. Looking at it now, Dark Legacy was an below-amateur attempt at a fan fiction. Seriously, the main character's name was Darren Vanguard.

DARREN. VANGUARD.
Who the hell was I trying to convince with a name like that?

The mapping... well, it was okay, according to some people. I disagree.

Chapter 1: Discovery
CafeteriaThe Search
PROPER Brand New Media
Yuck. Where do I begin? Repeated textures, terrain spikes, blocky mapping... I could be here all day trashing this stuff. Dark Legacy eventually just lost steam, and I decided to put it down.


Project 3:
Derelict

Now, this mod I never put a ModDB page for because... well, I just started it honestly. A few inspirations come in the form of Dead Space and Amnesia in terms of gameplay. You play as a worker onboard a derelict spaceship and you have to find out what happened to the crew.

New project
Obviously, this stuff is early work-in-progress. This time, I'm going to this stuff right. Whenever I set up the mod page, I'll be looking for team members who are willing to help. This mod will not be cancelled... hopefully.

So, that's it. I managed to look upon my work and become my own biggest hater in a way. To who ever reads this, thank you and hope to see you in the future
