Is it? This mod page has existed for just over three weeks and you have a release date estimate for three years from now... How could it possibly be time for a demo!?

I would disagree. The hunters are far too large and different in appearance to be houndeye synths and even if they were, why would the combine strip them of their sonic attack? Surely they would build on that rather than simply remove it. :P

An good comparison would be the headcrabs. The combine didn't modify/enhance them (other than possibly the poison and fast varients as we did not see them previous to HL2) but they did weaponise their aggressive parasitic nature.

I don't know if it's from an actual song. It's a sample recording of the Oud from the World Music game in Microsoft Encarta '95.

You can see it here on YouTube: Youtu.be

The maps could use some work... I'm not sure what any of the environments are supposed to be.

Urby @ Should the storyline be changed?

I don't think G-Man would make that kind of mistake...

As DevinShadowV said, you should really nail the story elements before you start working on anything. Also, make sure that your story elements don't feature anything you won't be able to include in the mod :P

1. Why are the floor textures scaled up so much?
2. Why are the pipes and consoles pink and yellow??

Urby @ Fun with old textures!

Man, those wounded scientist textures were pretty grotesque. I wonder why they were never used in the release. Saving memory or avoiding higher age restriction?

Yes. Yes I am... Though in this one instance I wasn't trying to be. ._.

Latest article:

"i just want to know how many people like or hate the textures so i can have a better idea"

Two people offer constructive criticism

"Meh, I think it's fine."

I mean, why even pretend to care?

Hey wins4skins. Usually a mod will have a downloads/files tab in the top menu, assuming it has been released.

Can't say I've heard of NGHL... But it works with Xash3D if that's anything to go by.

Urby @ How many people likes the textures

I have no idea what tone you are attempting to achieve with your mod right now. If it's an old abandoned bunker that hasn't been used for some time then you might want to check out something like this image in terms of appropriate colours: Subbrit.org.uk

If this facility is supposed to still be active then it would be much cleaner for one thing, regardless of the company's morals. A filthy lab is never going to yield positive results. The colours would be more sterile with only hints of vibrant colour here and there for signage and warnings. Check this image: Newcomb-boyd.com.

For the most part, your texture work is pretty sloppy, especially on the NPCs. I've said before that your characters look like they are wearing an ungodly amount of eye-shadow. This is emphasised by the fact that they all look exactly the same, like some weird emo panda army... As for your maps, the texturing looks entire slapdash. Just applying any texture to any surface without thinking about what the room's purpose is.
