The Core Version 2.0 - The Brushwork-Hell

How have you been. You monster.? GLaDOS would ask... Well, we've been busy with a new version for "THE CORE". Inspired by the instant classic 3D-shooter "Quake" we are working on a new style for our "Portal 2" mod. We are adding new elements to it as well as giving all maps a new touch. CosmicD is creating new deadly puzzles and Darth_Brush is re-crearting all maps and is providing them with more details and brushwork. This mod doesn't take place in the Aperture Science universe anymore, it takes place in a dark digital nightmare.

After the first release we decided to go far away from the original "Portal 2" style and "THE CORE" will get an own remarkable look. We've kicked it into 5th gear with development and today we can show you some in-game screenshots:

We're sure you are all thinking ‘When is it going to be released?’. "Team Delay" don’t have anything set in stone, we don't want to make any promises. "The Core" is progressing as smooth as ever, so kick back, relax, and don't forget to track this mod.

and also, the "trying-to-update" bug is in both an auto-installed version and a manually installed one

at this point I wouldn't install this mod anymore. We're checking into this when the workshop version of the reloaded mod is ready. The mod uses a template that is now old and defunct because valve updated portal with the puzzle editor.

What I'm going to try is to build a new mod template from scratch and hopefully it will be populated with the correct up to date files. Then I'll add in the new maps and required scripts and we have to test the new situation.

The whole reason why I started the stand alone mod was because there wasn't an easy way for me to deliver all my custom stuff. THis has changed with 2 magic things, namely pakrat and the workshop.

I would like to begin a discussion to see if someone is even looking forward. The advantage of the mod is that - when it works and doesn't cause these update bugs anymore - will provide you with custom elevator movies. The rest is highly upgraded and the level design of the workshop version is superiour also.

I've been rather busy with my new itunes album, but that's out of the way now and I'm waiting for my partner to discuss some things really. Either we could release reloaded on steam workshop, or as a stand alone mod. If I find the time I should be able to research if all the technical background is solid enough for making our custom elevator movies work and that sort of stuff. The new map is really coming allong, it'll be again something new introduced to the portal universe :)

I have to say though that I'm not certain if it's for this year or next :P
