Major Announcement

News 23 comments

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.

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: "...you 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.
