MAN LOVE!! WOO!!
Haha! Yeah, I'm starting to wonder if we're cursed! Has been a rough year! But yeah, NullSoldier, it'll be out soon. We have a few small bugs to fix, and then we're done.
Oh dear lord. No, most games do NOT release with the tools for modding, most don't even HAVE tools for modding, and generally they get released after the game comes out. Valve are one of the few developers that actively supports and encourages modding and provides easy to use tools for the fans to use.
Any Valve game! Valve changed it so you can run Orange Box mods without owning an Orange Box game a while back.
Fantastic! I've had Deus Ex installed for months in preparation for this!
Tis no mod, this be an open beta for a commercial game :/
Izanagi totally nailed what I was going to say, but just to add to it... We've balanced the perks so that each perk has an opposite perk, meaning that depending on how you play and which perk you choose, the playing field is still level, and therefore the focus of winning a round is based on teamwork rather than an individuals perks or assets.
The more you work together, choose the right perk and weapon combos etc, the better you do, and the more you and your team benefit from the points.
"We have a lot more to show in the coming weeks/months so stay tuned because we have some great stuff on the way!!"
Indeed we do... we've completely overhauled 0.3.1 almost from scratch with loads of new features and redeveloped old ones, so over the next few weeks we'll be releasing loads of media.
It's a shame about the servers not running 0.3.1 anymore, but then we just have to hope 0.4 has more of an impact!
Sex-tastic Alt babeh!
Ooh likin' the new red team skin!
Wow! Man, this is looking fantastic guys, great job on the video too! And Alt, your map is looking soooooo sexy!
Genius! This is such fun to play! :D
This is GENIUS!! Go, go Stenchy, headline this baby!
Wow! DuckSauce pointed me towards this from the Jailbreak forums and it looks freaking brilliant! Gonna check this out for sure! Genius!
Fantastic work guys, the art style is great, as Intense says, I hope the gameplay matches! Can't wait!!!
I can't wait for this to get released, so excited that it's 99% done :D This has been one of my "most anticipated" mods for ages, partially because of how mysterious it's been.
Isn't the Rural Russia one now part of Ivan's Secrets?
Thaaaaat's actually a bug! The indicator is actually for when the British Bulldog Execution is taking place, and it counts down how many players you need to kill in order to get bonus points for a "successful execution". Unfortunately, if the previous map ends on a BBD execution, the players remaining tab carries over to the next map in rotation! It'll be fixed before the release!
Haha! That gives me an idea for another mod... Beer Run! A bunch of drunks have to get beer to a party, the enemy team consist of chavs trying to steal the beer!
This mod gets better and better! You guys are geniuses! A sail boat grenade... ahaha!!
Yep you're right, it's all been redone for this version, so everything is more consistent throughout :D
Soooon my friend, sooooon!
Glad you enjoyed it! The reason you saw no dinosaurs though, is because 0.5 hasn't been released yet! Oh and Plague is back for 0.5, and it's even freakier! :D
Nice work INtense! You're a right code demon! And thanks for using Jailbreak in the example!
That was me :D
This is really, really fun, it's like Left 4 Dead but the HL2 Universe... Coop Zombie Blasting, with barricading and weapon buying, great fun :D
This is brilliant, it's like Left 4 Dead in HL2! :D
Wow! This is looking great guys! It's got surprisingly tactical gameplay, never realised it would be like that, but I guess you do have to think about the type of grenade, where best to throw it, and where your opponent is going to be in order to achieve the kill. Good job!
I hope so!
All 18 weapons in 0.5 are completely custom made :D
Thanks to everyone for all the positive comments, we're quite overwhelmed with how well it's gone down, it's great to have our work appreciated in this way, and we can't wait to release it to you guys!
Indeed, totally respect your opinion and very well put too... but for us, the chief complaint from the large majority of our player base after the release of 0.4, was the inclusion of HL2 content, and the Rebel and Combine player models... We had decided early on to replace those, prior to 0.4, but the complaints spurred us on to do this for 0.5. As IZaNaGI said, our intention all along has been to create something totally new, and not within the realms of the HL2 universe, and likewise, we have always aimed to make this an arcade shooter, and not a realism mod :D
No there wont be, and no you're not the only one... but we never expected everyone to like the idea! We're just pleased that the majority do :D Be sure to give the mod a try either way though!
Eh? I'm intrigued... I'll have to go watch that, what did he suggest?
Thanks for all the great comments so far guys, I'm really pleased to see that the majority likes what we're up to! We knew there would be people thinking "Erm... they on crack?" but we just had to do it... Once the idea of Dinosaurs vs. Robots was in our heads, it never left!
I doubt it! But we never wanted to play it safe with the choice of player models... It had to be outrageous or bizarre, with a sci-fi root and this concept fit the bill! We're a mod team afterall, we can and should take risks with high-concepts like this! I hope you'll come try it out when we release though :D
Haha! Yeah I kinda rounded up! Close though, maybe 99.2% ;)
Yes. Jetpacks. This mod now wins. Totally playing this now!
Sweet! I can't wait :D
Awww! We know it's not to everyone's taste, but we always intended to move away from the HL2 Universe completely. It's a shame you dont want to give it go, you might enjoy it!
