Ok, this has become HUGE. Last time I played was 1.0, which ended on an underground tunnel during Countdown.
Now you've route 1 and route 2; 2 differents ways to end the game. Route 1 is long, very long, and very Difficult where you fight against the new Alien race you designed, I was a bit disappointed by the final fight, I was really expecting to see the leader of this race, or the Gman, at the "center of all things".
Route 2 is shorter but provides the player with a boss fight, a différent way to fight a well known enemy...
Each route leads to the same final part, a strange variation of the beginning and then an epilogue at this point still unfinished (map rl03o1 is missing).
Anyway. This was already one of the best HL mod's so far in 1.0 and now this has ascended on the top 10. Maybe more.
Work a bit more on a better way with route 1 to end "your" story in a better way, because I think there's really more to see at center of all things, more than just running into the map and get téléported away.
I'll of course play 1.5. Good luck. You're great.

Holy SH****T, this was so unexpected!!! I really loved the Sprucecape Mappack, I didn't know you're doing another version. Dl right now.
Whenever U want for 1.4... EDIT : fixed :)
Good news, i'll try that beta.
it doesn't matter because 100 HP, 231 or even 1000. You'll die anyway.
I'm sorry, I don't play multi-only **** XD
(glorious solo PC master race)
Ok, it was a funny "mappack" from some good old modder's I've known since several years now, it was globally short, and the challenges were varied and fun.
THE GOOD :
1) Riddler's Complex (Malle), interesting maze with some nice tip's when stuck, it was various and inventive.
2) Chairman (Strider) : again, some nice puzzles and the use of "stealth" in an 1998 game is pretty nice. Also, the japanese design.
3) Status Reporting (Ninetnine) : just fun :D
4) Bernier and Co (Tetsu0) : nice little challenge with some humor;
THE AVERAGE :
5) Cristalline Energy (Urby) : average challenge.
6) Roof (Urby) : a sympathetic final battle but just "classic".
7) Recreational Area (2muchvideogames) : funny in the beginning but then it was a little boring.
8) LAB COMPLEX (Dr Orange) : frankly, I barely remember.
9) Upper Management (the mighty atom) : long and various but too hard, either on the puzzles and on the fights
THE "BAD" :
10) Time labs (Jessie) : too long for nothing and a "meh?" ending
11) Rebellatrix Media (JeffMOD) : the map was cool but I quickly lost interest until the lame end.
12) Aerodynamics (TJB) : There was nothing. At all. What the hell was that??
Globally, it was a pretty cool challenge, thank you for this.
Holy **** that's INCREDIBLE
It was misunderstood. They were a smaller team, much smaller than BMS team.
WC should be considered as it is : a short action-packed mod in a well-recreated Black Mesa in Source, with customized enemies.
A feat only accomplished by 2 mod's : BMS and this.
There was a funny bug during the beta testing, the only guard you discover during your Journey, his eyes... for some reason turned completly Red. I thought the mod suddenly changed of orientation, that he was possessed by a demon, I was scared and sweating.
But no, it was only a strange bug.
Yeah, would be cool, I've played the last version 3 years ago and I'm really interested to see what you've added since this time :)
Ah yes, finally I'll send the end of it, some... years after the beta.
Wish you success, you've worked long and hard for this.
I think I would suck. Posing as babalon is really good and entertaining, I put it on my playlist.
I understand your grief, but I thought, reading your earlier comments, that the mod was ready to release the 29th of december, with no more work to do on it, if not for your tragic loss.
Actually, moddb dl servers are usually slow and ******. I'm amazed 7,000 people managed to dl 2,8 from this. Besides, seeing the dl stop at 95% after hours of dl is just so frustrating.
Congratulations to everyone even if I know virtually Nothing about them...
At last, we don't get a "multiplayer mode for house oven simulator" **** for the 1st place.
Mel deserved his place in the top 10, but I'm a bit disappointed Brutal Half Life didn't get even a place in honorable mention. Of course it's unfinished but it did get some hype at its release.
Anyways, if I'm still happy that modding is still alive and well for many games and that modders and fanboys are still very inventive,
it's also very informative about the state of HL/HL2 modding in the player's world today, slowly but slightly disappearing each year...
Wrap up your IRL stuff and then come back whenever you're ready.
Moddb dl servers are ****, you should know that, worst idea.
PP servers will usually do better, especially with 7zip compression.
Like BMS, with the size of the file, really a torrent will be helpful.
No Last Squad? Shame.
*BIG FART* Woops sorry did that count as a word?
Part 1 still coming this year?? Time's short (but I understand, tempus fugit for all of us)
I remember when this thing was called "Rooftop Retreat", I even remember when you released Final Project Diary, I really didn't like it because it wasn't what I hoped for a last mod from you.
I remember also it took me so long to complete Strider Mountain that I thought I would die of gaming poisoning. In fact, I really died of gaming poisoning with G String. Still, it took me nearly 20 hours to complete Strider Mountain with the "true" ending.
Now I know when I'll play this, but seriously with this 23 levels, I don't know when I'll finish it... Either way, I hope you've put up a great ending for your nearly decade year old career in the Source modding.
For some reason, it seems there is some kind of continuity in your vision of the "post HL2" timeline.
Breen and Gman died during Coastline to Atmosphere and were never seen after that, the same for Barney who was "combined" during Strider Mountain. Now I see that Zombie Kleiner has taken over as the new bad guy (after the self-sustained Strider mountain), can we see that as a "trilogy"?
It's never over till it's over (but I Fear the "to be continued" before the next episodes... )
Wait for the MOTY from the players, if we have another "multi-San Andreas/Euro Truck..."-like, it'll be hell!
Congrat's to BRUTAL HALF LIFE who got a well-deserved award, but it's not only visuality, it's also gameplay with the kick/boot that allows you to kick your enemies in deep pits.
Also, congrat's to other Valve-based mod's, PORTAL MEL and ALCHEMILLA even if it's not my style of games.
It's too bad you put these updates just a few hours after the end of the votes for MOTY, I'd have Voted for you.
Or maybe it was done on purpose.
