With the announcement of From Earth people have been asking where the second episode of Human Error is, or what is even going on with it. Unfortunately, I have to say that another instalment of Human Error is very unlikely to happen at this point. It's not that I am not interested in continuing the story, or that I don't care about the characters. I would very much like to hear Phillip sing as Larson again. I'm sure we all would.

It's a problem of what I have time for and what I find most interesting. Making gameplay different from Half-Life 2, and setting the story in a world where I have no restrictions is more creative than doing a world set in the Half-Life 2 universe, where I always have to think around the Combine technology.

From Earth is currently becoming, I think, bigger and better than Human Error. It’s going to be more refined and polished than HE ever was. And even once that’s done -- which could take some time -- there is little chance of me being able to turn my attention back to HE. I have been working on mods a while now and I am starting to seriously consider my entry into the industry itself. After From Earth is done, I hope to be either working at a games company or on a small indie game of my own. I would probably have no time, energy, or permission to work on HE EP2, or any mod for that matter, at the same time.

Originally I planned to include a small section here detailing all the different design iterations for the second episode of Human Error, but after talking with other team members, we agreed that it would be better to leave it a mystery as to how the story would continue. We felt we owed the first episode its autonomy. One thing I would like to mention, though, is that even though I still like some of those ideas, most of them were very unfinished. Even the concept that I liked best was something that differed hugely from what you saw the first time, and I didn't really take it much further than a few descriptions on how it would work. Water, although having its own misgivings, was something that interested me and team members a lot more than what we had planned for EP2.

I know how to fix the errors and missing textures. First, download GCFScape. When its installed, go to Half-Life 2/hl2, and open the hl2_textures_dir file. Extract the materials folder to sourcermods/Human_Error. Merge the folders, but don't overwrite any files. After that, go to Half-Life 2/ep2 and open the ep2_pak_dir file. Extract the materials and models folders into sourcemods/Human_Error. Again, Merge the folders, but don't overwrite any files.

I've followed a bunch of advice (steamcommunity, steampowered, planetphilip, lambda generation) regarding updating mods re:2010 and 2013 steam updates, including the vpk files, but I cannot get this mod to display the right textures and models. Any advice?
