Story: It was written in the ancient scrolls of Xian that, during the last Crelat of Xen time, a portal would be opened between two universes and a being would cross the void and cause the second re-birth of Nihilanth, and all Xen would be drained of their lifeblood, their knowledge. And that, in this time, the Xen race would be oppressed by the armies from the far side of the portal.

It was also written that once the portal was opened, a human known as “Freeman” would cross the galactic transverse into Xen space, and set free the three sacred Telnorps, the guardians of the gate who had been captured from the ancient enemies of the Xen, the Zan from the Theldran galaxy.

And so it was that the prophecy came to pass, and the weakened Xen were powerless to resist an onslaught from the Zan. In the dawn of the first Ashaan of Xen time, the elders of the high council sanctioned an uneasy alliance with the perpetrators of the impending disaster, the Human race, in order to restore the sacred telnorps, and thus sealing the Zan gateway… forever.

The ambassador of the Alien Investigation Unit on earth was called upon to “redeem” the situation by employing the use of the very individual who had inadvertently caused the situation…

Can anybody help me out with this mod? I downloaded the steampatch version but for some reason none of the guns are working properly. The pistol firing animations are completely gone and the shotgun primary and secondary firing animations and switched around. I can't find any help on this topic anywhere.

Some places are dead ends, had to use noclip to advance. Dont know if its just me, but there were no other options. It is a nice mod, lots of variety, but there are some areas which just left me lost, stuck, confused, and just fustrated. I dont think it deserves a 8.5 but thats just me, i dont speak for the majority. I still find it more good than bad. Mod of the year? Why not? 7/10
