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 regret to inform that I have to delay the release, just because something unexpected happened, namely the game will no longer read custom campaign vpk's. I'm not sure if I have to create an entire mod system just for a few custom maps that are not a real modifications but as of now there's no support in the game to play addon campaigns without having to recreate the installer to continue every file individually instead of the vpk itself, and I'm not sure I want to infiltrate the player's main game folder with all my materials and other data.

So we'll have to see how valve will adressthis in the future.

there were a few things wrong with the beta which distorted some puzzles and confused playtesters. I'd have another one ready at the end of this week I assume. I need to get a tiny bit more voicework / bik media done too and team members are busy with that now.

There needs to be some kind of system added to moddb to prevent 2 mods having the same name :|

yeah i HAD problems with that, but it's because i called the directory /thecore , so I just called it COREMOD, with a title of "the core".. is that bad ?

THere are more movies and books with the same name too but with a different story.

Heh, it's not a problem.

I just went to it thinking one of our team had drastically changed the mod we're working on. LOL.

Is it a mod or just a map pack?

It's not a mod in the sense that it's like totally something else because that would be a total conversion mod". but It's a mod in the sense that I sometimes use different puzzle elements than in the stock maps, It's rather a campaign, with it's own background story as well.

Yeah, you're not full of yourself at all. Good looking mod, though.

Nah that's just marketing. You know, it has to come from somewhere. I'm not alone in this too: to becomplete I'd probably have to change that tagline to "from the makers who brought you Suicide Blitz, Cold Stream, Dead before Dawn and Chell's Legend", but that'd be confusing: but these guys adviced me alot over the years.
