STARDROP ON KICKSTARTER


WE ARE LIVE

I remember when I started working on ElevenEightySeven so many years ago. I'll never forget that time. Times were so different back then. We didn't have the tools we have today to make or even publish games. We had our love for a game and a desire to be just like the developers and make our own games through mods and create stories with our favorite characters, or find ways to come up with our own.

That's how I started. Learning how to make maps in Hammer. Learning how to work with VTFEdit. Meeting other modders and guys just like me. I still talk to a lot of them to this day and have worked with some, Dec Doyle for instance.

And then there's you guys, the community, at ModDB and IndieDB. I owe the community so much for all their kind words over the years. The ones who still come back to the ElevenEightySevens mod page and leave a message. I mean, how much more can you ask that in a time where mods are in a decline and still have people talking about yours.

Why am I talking about that now? well, mainly because I am someone who reflects from time to time on his past and also because I have a need to make it clear that I know mine. I know that I have a lot to thank the community for. ElevenEightySeven did make it to Tenth Place in 2010. I mean to me that's still incredible. :)

Times have changed indeed and I now find myself in a world where I can actually make my own game. Write my own story with my own characters and do things that I could never do before.

It's the same drive that motivates me now as back then. Even more so now than ever before because this time I can truly write from the heart and come up with things without any restrictions.

Enough about me and my past though, it's time for STARDROP to shine. Our kickstarter is LIVE and if you guys have played the demo and want to help out, then now is the best time to do just that.

Thank you for reading !!!

Well, I have ERRORs almost everywhere. The sky gets completly white slowly when I look at it. Also texture errors (pink and black). Is this caused by the SDK Base itself maybe, because its all updated etc? But with all these problems so far I wont play it :(

Will work resume on 1187 resume once Contagion is out of beta?

Short answer: Yes. Long Answer: I am currently contemplating which path to take for 1187. I'm contemplating overhauling episode one. Cutting out parts of the mod that I didn't like and making all the maps from scratch and doing a complete story/gameplay overhaul. This means I will reuse certain assets while ditching or remaking others. It will also mean that episode one will be very different yet familiar while flowing into episode two, making it one whole mod with a beginning and an ending...

I will also be in need of a new small team since the old team has dissolved by now. So we might see some devs return while others won't.

On top of that I am considering waiting for source2, but as of now I might as well use the 2013 SDK. Anyway, a lot of stuff I need to think about. so I'll start slowly.

I didn't think the question would be that loaded but a status update is better than a dead mod.

Wouldn't hold my breath for Source 2, as it might be much of a myth as Half Life 3. As Valve will just call it Source if it ever does come out.

There's no concrete info on source2, but since I'm busy as it is I might as well wait a little while. And no, 1187 is never dead to me, just that I don't have the time to actively put my time into it at the moment.

The lack of time is a better explanation then we get from most mods.

As for 1187's plot your mod is the only one that touches on the Seven Hour War and released at all. Most are dead or just a lame map. A good story writer would tread carefully around that. Being the "first" has its own advantages and downsides.

Lowest Rated (13 agree) 3/10

The visuals were okay but the gameplay was frustrating and badly designed. Nearly EVERY design decision they made was a bad one. Removing noclip, flashlight only working on some of the guns, ugly view bobbing, annoying companion whom you have to babysit 24/7. The list goes on and on. The gameplay at the start is incomprehensible. Instead of going for the tried and true design of giving the player subtle hints on where to go, the mappers opted for a "dump them in a maze with abritaryly locked doors…
