Hello all,

I’m sad but also happy to announce this. After talking with the team, we are working together with weekly meetings on Skype. Let me first say the Alyx mod that you’ve all been waiting for is moving to UDK. We will be rewriting the story for UDK so the spirit of the project is there but sadly we can’t use any of the stuff in the half-life world is copyrighted so we are tweaking the story. Now that does not mean we are turning our back on the Source world. We will be working on a new idea for the engine as we try hard to find a programmer that wants to work with us.

- Jack B. Klein

Do you know what's wrong with this mod?
The developers can't accept a ******* critic!

And apparently getting an ambience and a "part" of the city done in 3 weeks is awful.
I suggest you get better models, and instead of drawing concept art of characters everyone knows, TRY TO DO CONCEPT ART OF THE LEVELS, maybe that way you can get better ideas for the maps - Just the Tip.
PS: i'm not going to reply to troll comments.

To Black$shot and the other.
We can accept Critic, But there is a point when the critic keeps gotten repeated by at least 50 people. Do us a big favor and please read all the posts before you post. We understand We have made some mistakes. We are only human. Also we are not a team from Valve. We are an Mod team that loves the HL2 world. If you Would really like to help us out. Then please send me an e-mail and we can talk va Vent, Teamspeak, mumble or heck over Steam it self. But please please read all the other comments before you post. A Lot of what your saying has been said before.

Shut up, we accept criticism but we don't accept whining. Firstly when addressing criticsm address the issues politely and amicably and state what is wrong and how we can improve on them. Not saying things like: "The models are absolute ****,no mapping screenshots and the only thing that actually looks good is the concept art."

Leave. Anymore comments from you will be deleted -- that's enough! We've done concept art for the levels but we're not posting them because as we said before we don't want things spoiled.

I've stated you'll get media when we're closer to release. Accept it and get on with your own endeavours. I already accepted criticism from Urby and TehBoxN00b but you've just been going on and on like a broken record i.e. bashing our modeler's modeling style and the way we handle things.

"PS: i'm not going to reply to troll comments."

You post back you're contradicting yourself if you're considering us trolls; don't be a hypocrite and think with logic. We're not making the mod for you, we're making it for the people who truly follow us; I don't care about you, I only care about the people who stick with us no matter what.

We are doing everything in the absolute best way possible; we've had 5 people leave due to life issues and due to the workload of the map being too much. snK was our 2nd mapper that I hired but he came back after a year or so off -- this has delay dour process and this is why we haven't been able to release.

I can map but I am not that great AT ALL. I can do animation, texturing, design and a bit of programming but that's it.

Hey, I'm new here today. Alyx looks Cool. Nothing's going to really happen until AFTER 2013? I'm not criticizing, (I prefer a quality finished product) I'm just curious and intrigued. I ran across this Mod by accident today and was trying to download it, thinking that it was already out.

After yeah. The amount of work that is being done is a lot. Right now I'm working on animation with Ceiling Pie as well as designing the website and just generally designing things with the team.

Urby Dec 30 2012 says:

OK here we go:

1. Alyx was born in Black Mesa.
2. Why would a city be called City 11 before the combine invasion?
3. The Anti-mass spectrometer test is not a teleportation experiment. Teleportation had already been developed in the Lambda complex. Anomalous Materials labs was for studying exotic materials.
4. How would Alyx meet a math student as a teenager? Are the combine running high schools now?
5. Gordon Freeman disappeared for 20 years, not 2.
6. The seven hour war occurred when the combine invaded. There was no resistance until the human race had been enslaved. Ravenholm was shelled much much later, when the combine discovered resistance fighters were hiding there.

I could go on. Please just read up on the Half-Life plot a little.

I don't want to sound rude but it's not up to you to decide how the mod will play. If they wanna twist the Half Life universe they can, even if it bothers some people.

Oh and Tobeas, I guess you're right in a certain "twist"; but we have to do it :-)!

I don't really think we're twisting it. We're sticking true to it but we have to make things up because they have never been explained in the HL story.

Explain to me where I was wrong and I will accept.

I already said to Dr.E.B: " got me on the first point. It is never actually established she was born in the BMRF."

Even based on the link you posted, I got one point wrong, which I already admitted.

The only thing you were wrong about was the first one. It has never been stated where Alyx was born, but only where she lived during the events of the Resonance Cascade. I should have altered the "2 years" bit though, I meant 2 years SINCE he left when he was held frozen in time. Student has another meaning though, he could be one who "self-studies"; it doesn't necessarily have to mean that one attends education. The Anti-Mass Spectrometer was used to test the mass of anti-charged particles; that I do know -- however, who says that it was also not used for teleporation methods? Both technologies are technically linked aren't they? We see in HL1 that Gordon gets teleported to the Xen world and back again. I admit I should have yet explained that in the synopsis.

Everything else I'll take into account, thanks man.

If you've got any more differing or detailed criticisms then PM me. As the comments is being filled with very detailed criticisms when they should be brief. I don't mean it in a bad way, I love criticism; but take it up with me personally. I upvoted your comment due to me learning something new!

Heh, thanks man. I'm a HUGE fan of the HL franchise and its story so I guess I can fly off the handle about certain things a little too hastily.

Glad you took my comment with a pinch of salt, and yeah, you got me on the first point. It is never actually established she was born in the BMRF.
