The 2011 release is now referred to as a beta release- read the mod's "news" to see why. Download the beta in the mod's "downloads" section:


Soon I will start putting out media relating to the final version slated to come out towards the end of 2015 or early 2016. I am not sure if it will be on Greenlight or Steam.

The basic premise will still be the same in the final version:
The air is foul and corporate fascism reigns in the not too distant future. Somewhere in the North American Union you are Myo Hyori, an 18 year-old girl of Korean descent who has had enough. Oh and you can start fires with your mind. This makes your corporate owners very nervous...

G String BETA out now.

I know that originally this was the full release but so many changes and improvements have been made since 2011 that I think technically now we can honestly refer to this old release as a PUBLIC BETA. I had no intentions of continuing development on the mod but due to public interest and a sense of a "missed opportunity" I continued. This 2011 release was rushed since I wanted to just get the mod out and move on. I did not want the mod to die under any circumstances so I am glad I have released it. I knew it's not what it can be but after 5 years I was ready to move on.

Hopefully there is still enough time for everyone to get used to this new name before the final version comes out. If you uploaded the mod elsewhere, or made YouTube videos maybe change the names in the descriptions. Thank you.

I am still not sure what the final version will be called maybe simply "G String" while this old one will stay the "G String Beta". I am leaning towards calling the final version "G String: Awakening", or "G String: The Last Story" maybe "G String: Singularity"... some end of time type of name. We will see.

Concerning the new version- A lot of progress is being made, I have now and have had over the years wonderful help (with voice work, music, prop making and coding) but keep in mind that I am still mostly working alone- especially when it comes to mapping. God willing the mod will be done towards the end of this year but I am not promising that. The new version will run on Source SDK 2013 (still free).

GENRE
Supernatural science fiction with a dash of horror. Slow and eerie in the first three or so hours, more action heavy afterwards.

SUMMARY

  • The air is foul and corporate fascism reigns in the not too distant future. Somewhere in the North American Union you are Myo Hyori, an 18 year-old girl of Korean descent who has had enough. Oh and you can start fires- with your mind. This makes your corporate owners very nervous...
  • Humanity is deeply in debt and under constant surveillance.
  • Refugees flood the West due to a devastating war in the Middle East and major earth changes in South-East Asia.
  • The oil flow dries up.
  • Marshall Law introduced in response to a chain of domestic terrorist attacks against major financial institutions.
  • The air becomes poisonous in major cities - The rise of air tycoons, owners of air recycling plants.
  • Anyone not purchasing a set amount of goods in a certain amount of time is labeled a nosumer and can be charged with refusal to stimulate the failing economy.
  • Cybernetics is everywhere.
  • Europe becomes too cold, many parts of Asia sink, Africa and South America are raped for natural resources while North America is constantly ravaged by earthquakes.
  • Marriage and the nuclear family are history.
  • There are permanent colonies on Mars and the Moon.
  • But as the old world is crumbling something new is coming into being. Many people are waking up to their true powers- their DNA changing somehow... You are one of these outcasts.

Enjoy and please keep in mind that I am one girl and it took me five years to make this. To those who have helped me test and compile- thank you for your time.

FEATURES

  • 54 maps.
  • 12+ hours of gameplay.
  • All new content. This is a total conversion- it does not take place in the Half Life universe.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Steam account (FREE)
  • Source SDK Base 2006 (FREE)
  • Yes, the mod is 100% FREE, no need for any other game to play it.
  • Specs wise if you can play HL2 you can play this.


INSTRUCTIONS

  • Download RAR files.
  • Extract to your steam\steamapps\sourcemods folder.
  • Play.

ISSUES THAT MIGHT COME UP

  • Not much of an issue but I'll mention that the volume is set to 0 when you start so adjust it to your liking before starting a new game.
  • In the first level break the window next to the first stairs to find the keycard.
  • During the ending the last ascension ride might not start (after the TV screen shrinks and fades to white.)- open console and type "map end_3". Now you should be able to get to the end credits.
  • After emerging from the robot cemetery, on the top floor there is a level transition which might not trigger- load the last quicksave.
  • Sometimes the "SMG" primary ammo does not display- just switch to another weapon with bullets like the pistol then switch back to "SMG."
  • The missingheadcrab.mdl and the fireball crashes apply only to source
    sdk 2007. If you have those issues make sure you use source sdk 2006
    (steamID 215) in the g string gameinfo. Make sure your source sdk base
    2006 is validated and up to date. If you have the sdk base 2006
    installed and you still have the mentioned problems uninstall it and
    download it again from Steam. Also try to run the source sdk 2006 once
    before playing my mod.

Also, color_correction and env_tonemap_controller is not working on your mod. May be source sdk base 2006 is not supporting those entities.

I have confirmation that they do indeed work. Enable them in the options. I know in the console it says otherwise but in game it should work.

The mod crushes with fireball problems only on Source 2007 and 2009 for me, on 2006 it`s no problems.

It is meant to run on 2006 so maybe everyone should make sure they are running it off the source sdk base 2006!

this is looks and feels amazing.this mod is epic but i have 2 things that i think would make it better.i dont no anything about mods or how long it takes to implement stuff but firstly there is no cross hair for the guns and secondly if u could implement a zoom aiming function like in stalker..i think this would make it so much better.

Can you give us an approximate date of when you are going to try and fix the pyrokinesis problem? I've gone trough all 36 pages of comments and tried every proposed solution to the problem but to no avail, which sucks bad, because this looks like an amazing mod. I know I can play it without the fire, but where's the fun in not using one of the game's base mechanics. TL;DR - Date of the patch?

So far I don't know how to fix that fire related crash.

What I am going to do is I will make test maps with just the fire system implemented and have the players test it. Players who have the issues that is, maybe you? And then hopefully we can find the problem eventually.

The patch is at least 2 more months, I have watched some walthroughs, listened to complaints and am trying to fix every problem I saw. Also things I wasn't happy with I will address them, such as boring geometry/gameplay etc... Also adding subs and some more story dialogue takes time too. (Might need some voice actors...)

Then just compiling the maps and building cubemaps and uploading them takes at least a week for me so yeah...

May be its better to release first patch without tutorial level and only with subtitles and another important fixes and improvements? And after that to release the full patch with tutorial level and much more fixes.

Exactly! I know it's difficult to make a mod, but I think that this fireball issue is quite a big one and it's actually preventing a hefty sum of people to play the mod, which I think it's worse than the lack of subtitles. No disrespect or anything, I will wait if need be, but still.

Will you release any custom content? No pressure it's your decision and you have put a lot of work into this so you deserve it. Maybe on its anniversary or something?

Well, all the custom files like props, textures and sounds are with you already once you download the mod. You can use all of them in any way you want except in projects for profit.

I might release some maps that have prefabs and props already imported to make them easier to use. Maybe a texture pack. Yeah but right now I am busy with the patch- actually it's more like gstring v0.2 because I am making a lot of improvements.

A huge amount of work.Very impressive.

Lowest Rated (27 agree) 5/10

Excellent art direction and aesthetics, but plays very badly; the level design has absolutely no hints for the player, which becomes frustrating extremely quickly.

I don't care if it's meant to be "realistic"; realism doesn't mean fun.
