Half-Life 2: Short Stories is a team working on a group of modifications that take place in the same realm. A lot of the focus is on the story and gameplay, new innovative set pieces and puzzles. After the release of the first episode of Human Error, the team is planning to release more episodes and expand the characters and the world.
Today I came home and found my apartment and furniture all burnt. Then I went to the fridge and found the salami covered in bees. When I was in the bathroom the Alien Grunt suddenly decided that he had to break the door down. It was at that moment I realised they had to go.

So, today we are giving away the code for the Alien Grunt and Alien Controller. Hopefully people will find the tutorial helpful and we will see these guys somewhere else than my apartment. You can start by going to the Tutorials section on our website and download the files needed to add these guys into your mod. The zip includes the source code, the models, the materials, the script files, and the model source files (but no sounds). The tutorial is a bit complicated, but all steps are needed to add the Xenians correctly into a mod.
Meanwhile, we are working hard on Human Error Coop. We have set ourselves a deadline for 30th of June to release the first beta version. This version will have, as currently planned, two Traitor Mode maps (Backbone and Leech). If you are not yet familiar with Coop or the Traitor Mode, check out the teaser:
The Traitor Mode is about sabotaging the other Civil Protection players, trying to help the Hostiles (Xenians and Rebels) to destroy a Combine Main Frame or Advisor Pods. While players who simply attack the Main Frame won't usually manage to destroy it before time runs out, players who sneakily disable turrets and Combine shields without others noticing are usually more successful. If others find out that you are the Traitor, you have a lot harder time hacking Combine Interfaces. They can start a vote on a Combine Interface to mark you as Hostile. If the vote is successful, all Combine forces will attack you, and blue Combine shields will no longer let you through.

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Human Error. We love games like Half-Life 2: Episode Two that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
