The Development Project

is a Half-Life 2 modification purely made out of manipulated
Dev textures as a project for those that enjoy the simplicity of the original measuring textures created by valve scattered throughout the map but also enjoy all the effects, adventures and creativity of regular mods.

We are also trying to achieve the idea of mini-mods at the moment of which small detailed mods are created using the TDP content of improved dev textures through materials, models and maps but with a good amount of focus on gameplay for the players enjoyment.


TDP has development into an online multiplayer mod of many gameplay types in the making after coming to a conclusion that most mods of half-life have consisted of a great variety of online game-play types and options to play with friends over great amounts different.


Into possibly the slowest production of this modification now known as 'The Development Project', it's still under construction with a fully re-written storyline, new level design concepts and being pointed into the right direction of which will lead to a faster and better continuation of the project where more updates in the future will follow for those that are interested in this modification.

Late happy new year moddb!

For the past two weeks I have had leave from my job, and using this time i have been able to work on TDP and get something pushing further towards release. Doing this, i have come up with a plan to create a multiplayer game instead of a single player allowing me to test this with my current beta testers making it more enjoyable to work on.

So ever since the end of 2012, I have managed to port TDP to deathmatch using the episode 1 engine ( this also allows people that do not have episode 2 to play the game ), change the zombie models and give them new skins and code.

Amongst new code I have incorporated 2 new entities so far consisting of a kill counter that no does not need templated npc's in hammer in order to count then and can be used in hammer each zombie kill and then used in triggers such as opening doors or locks for weaponry, the second entity is a zombie maker that will allow the mapper to variate between the different zombie textures for different areas such as the brown environment below.

Above is an example picture of just half an hours worth of mapping using a single projected texture, a couple zombie models and textures. Very basic but imo it's very effective for a multiplayer game scene.

Slaughterhouse alpha gameplay - Mod DB

One more update to post to everyone after a video request is an alpha game video of slaughter houses that still requires a lot of changes towards it but it shows all the the above updates and a general idea of how the map design will look when using green dev textures.

Enjoy, be safe, and have a happy new year moddb.

You are a entity on a magical adventure to go to the carved lands and stop the non-existantly vertex manipulated brush that wants to crash the compiler.
On your adventure you will face many destroyed maps , the void and even T-JUNCTION DISPLACEMENTS !

So now go hero , and save the SourceSDK.
