No longer being tied to SF2 and having much deserved free time, I will be continuing work on what I love to do most. Truth is a new project that I recently started. More information will come soon.
It is a spiritual successor to Aberration.

There will be more information soon.

Look everyone, if the Devs of Nightmare House didnt want him using it they could contact him and ask him to remove it, and lets be honest, is anything original anymore(No offence makers)? And if u dont like it just dont download or watch the mod, I know your telling them what you think about it, but all u gotta do is say what you want, and get going, dont screw around her and argue with the Dev, let him make his mod the way he wants.-Ren
P.S I like the TMP model

Yes.. I believe Any game Dev is inspired by other's works.
But it's those individual game Devs that produce something new and innovative that make the best games.

I agree that nothing is original anymore - you're always going to find simarities where the dev was inspired by something else. However, that doesn't mean it's acceptable to completely copy something brush for brush (and no it doesn't matter whether he copy pasted or redid it himself). Unless you're making a port or a remake of another game/map,there really is no excuse for directly copying someone else's work.

Why should I be ashamed? I did nothing wrong. You should be ashamed though, for not speaking proper English.

You should be ashamed because you, without permission, stole directly from another mod. Proving your lack of imagination and creativity.

It's called constructive criticism. Criticism is used to point out faults in the creator's work so they can improve their craft.

In this case, the creator needs to NOT be copying Nightmare House 2 scares AND instead come up with their own ideas. Especially when they do a half-assed job in copying them in the first place.

it's not "constructive criticism" to call something "insulting" and "pathetic." that's just being mean.

Well that's how I honestly felt. Seeing a scare copied from a much better put-together Source mod, and then making it worse by missing the sound cue of the player when they bump against each wall and having a less visually intimidating payoff "on the ceiling".

Now if this scare had been designed with the NH2 comparison in mind, but then had been twisted that so the scare happened earlier or something else happened, this could have been a clever scare concept. Instead, it's just a complete copy....minus the good parts.

You care to call that anything other than "insulting" or "pathetic"? Or at least, a lack of original creativity on the mod maker's part?

The mapping is really good and detailed but that's all.

I think Aberration has great potential but is currently lacking in a few key areas. PRO: Good brushwork and aesthetics. Nice lighting in later levels. CON: Schizophrenic atmosphere (ie, horror theme in one map and alien shooter in another, etc). There are no story elements, which makes the mod lack cohesion (ie, horror elements and shooter elements seem to exist solely for gameplay purposes and reveal nothing about the character, etc). Too difficult on Hard Mode (ie, fighting 16+ soldiers and two…
