Mod failed to reach standards for release. Caltharia: Source is a single player mod for Half Life 2: Episode 2 set on the fictional archipelago of Caltharia. Set several years into the Combine occupation of Earth you will play as a citizen, your mind a hazy mess thanks to the water, all you know is this cannot go on any longer. The initial release will only be three story driven maps as part of a project for my FD Design for Games. It will have a very English feel to it as the country is supposed to of spent a large portion of its short history as part of the British Empire which will also be affecting its style of architecture, signs and street furniture. As this is part of my project for my Foundation Diploma it’s guaranteed to be finished by its deadline, images and videos coming soon.

Ok first thing I should address is the state of Caltharia: Source. The mod suffered from many of the mistakes a lot of first mods do. I learnt the basics of Hammer and assumed I could now make a full game solo which I discovered at my cost to have been a very stupid thing to do.

Caltharia: Source was showcased at Plymouth College of Arts' Summer Show causing me much embarrassment as you can see it was not near completion. I have since used the mod as my own little mark of shame and after graduating it has been a reminder of where I have come from.

Currently I am the writer and a mapper for the 7even mod, my skills drastically improved since this first outing with the Source Engine.

To be announced soon I have my own mod in development, hopefully the first of many. This time with a dedicated and talented team behind me.

I hope that my future projects will not disappoint.

It's all ready Tuesday on that side of the world. I'm going to guess this mod is dead if there is nothing in four hours.

Since your going for a British feel here, there should be the Sig P226 as the pistol, the H&K MP5 sub machine gun, and the L85A2 assault rifle.

Well, I am British and I say that this sounds interesting. About time we got an English point of view on the combine occupation.

Not much media yet but the houses built into the cliff face look interesting.

Thanks for the comment.

I'm hoping to make it feel as English as possible, any ideas on what else I could include would be really appreciated.
