The tree textures in your screenshots aren't great quality and are meant to be used much further away from the player. When they're that close you should really be using the models.

This looks freaking awesome. Can't wait for the initial release. My only gripe is the story.

"You have no weapons, no family, no more reason to live. Your only option is to reclaim the city from the outbreak."

Surely if you had "NO REASON" to live, you'd throw yourself off the nearest tall building or let the infected take you? You certainly wouldn't try to take back an entire city by yourself. :P

We have gone back and brought a lot of older chapters up to date, but that's only because we've added more and more textures and some of the older ones lacked the same amount of detail. A lot of these chapters are officially signed off so there's no worry of us getting bogged down with it. This change is simply in the interest of story. The original training map was nowhere near complete and elements will be recycled in the new opening chapter so nothing of value will be lost. :D

I love the models and the logo is pretty awesome. Anything Quake2 is good in my book.

The story however is not for me. Allow me to break it down a little:

"Hours after the destruction of Black Mesa, the news is bad. It seems whatever was detonated didn't make it to the underground missile silo complexes, as hoped."

It was a nuclear warhead that was detonated. It would have leveled most of the complex and left a hefty crater. What wasn't demolished would have been massively irradiated.

"If we're to cover this up quietly, we're going to need to get rid of the "evidence", so to speak."

At this point the seven hours war would have been in full swing. Black Mesa had already been covered up by the nuclear blast.

"The silos were sealed off prior to Black Mesa's launch. Back when it was predominantly a military base. Not even the BM officials know about them."

I'm pretty sure everyone in the facility knew that the BMRF was built around a decommissioned missile silo. The officials would definitely know because they would have overseen the construction from day one!
