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.

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

It bugs out with the installer, when I started the game I only get a black screen and it wont load. Any ideas to fix it, it's probably only my pc, my older one could install it...

you could either try the zip archive and/Or disable your firewalls while installing. Sometimes this installer isn't liked by some scanners whom think that it's a virus but it's not.

Hi CosmicD! The mod was short, and a little confusing. Some parts were disorienting, like the gravity stuff. Others didn't work at all. The portals flipped sideways sometimes. Are you going to fix any of this in the future?

This mod is excellent! I haven't figured it out yet unfortunately, but one question:
The theme at the VERY beginning which is a quick orchestral/chorus version of the portal 2 theme, I LOVE it! Any chance you could make a full version? And if not a full version, a decently long version? I just love the sound of it.
One last thing- If you didn't make it, and I'm blathering senselessly, could you tell me where you got it?
Thanks, and keep up the good work :)

I made that one and it's just supposed to be an intro. If enough ppl petition for this I might consider to make a long arranged version. After all it's a valve theme rearraged for symphonic orchestra to make the intro a bit cinematic.
