Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: New update about Deflections

8 comments by Thanoshld on Mar 23rd, 2012

So, it has been a long time since I have updated anything on my mods' page or upload anything at all here on my profile regarding me and my mod. I made only a little status update, which you can find here

As I said, I am very low on time, but not as much as I used to be. The main problem now is that I don't have a regular internet connection so I can contact my other team members. That is indeed a problem because when I run into a problem, I cannot solve it immediately, but I have to wait till I have found an internet connection to look it up on the internet or/and to contact my other team members. Also, right now, since my indoor mod has pretty much been completed (as I state in my mods' summary, you will venture through an alien infested city later on in Deflections), I am currently occupied with doing the first outdoor maps. Well, I have made some before, but they all were, well...let's say the compiler did not like 'em.

Also, as always, I am re-oing some of my older maps. Since i have over 70 maps, the first 50 (at least) are full of errors. They may compile and look good, but they have leaks, they are very simplistic or they just don't fit my current standards.

Due to the recent update on my mods' page, I update my profile page with a couple of pictures of what I am working right now and what I am trying to fix or make better with my older maps. I hope you enjoy this little Deflections update.

Greetings, Thanoshltbeginning aka Thanoshld

Because GoldSource is still great, it doesn't matter that Source is newer or has better graphics.

Not really.

In any case, who gives a **** what engine it being used? If they want to mod HL1, so what? Don't stop people from their passion.

@Icefalme:Well modding for the GldSource engine is much more fun and easy than for the source engine, and personally i loved HL1 more than HL2.And nope, for a month now i am back :)
@Zanta_Claws:Yep that too,it's very difficult to recreate HL1 in Source.You need a big and talented team for that!
@_DiamonD_Tottaly agree mate :)Thanks!

I think a good HL 1 mod is way better than anything HL 2 can throw out, and it brings back memories of old Black Mesa.

Well i dont agree with your comment completely, i believe half-life 1 mods can be just as good as source, but look at mods like Zombie Panic for goldsource, you can't say it didn't get better when they made it in source can you? i like half-life 1 mods, but i like source just as much.

If you ask me graphics dont really matter that much, i would rather have the maximum of hours of gameplay possible than have a game with the best graphics out also, there are alot more problems with the goldsource engine than the outdatedness of it, it also has alot of limitations modding wise, limitations that source doesn't have.

Also the mod looks great, when this comes out im sure to tackle and beat it,
Nice concept, Nice bit of story, and i like how your actually putting the player in the seven hour war and its always nice to relive black mesa.

Well ,what you say is true, Source is a completely awesome game engine by itself and can produce one of the best results out there.People like us though are more interesting to the retro style and memories the original gldsource engine can produce, something that Source cannot do.And i believe, every hl1 mod is uniqe, cause it doesn't matter how many mods placed in Black Mesa you will play or how many mods of HL1 you play in general, they always have this similarity and in the same time this uniqness compared to the original HL1.Something that the Source engine doesn't offer :)
And many many thanks for you kind words, much appreciated!Yep, i always wanted to excperience the 7 Hour War in the GldSource engine, and since no mod excist for that, i thought to make one :) Thanks again!

Well honestly i would more like to experience the seven hour war in Both engines, rather than just on gold source Mods seem to be being developed for it. but dont seem to be out for it yet.

Ive noticed that similarity, but the problem with it is the fact that think of the modifications that have nothing to do with half-life, and their only useing half-life as a base for the modification, they dont necessarily want their mod to have that similarity as they are trying to make a new game in general not just a modification, although that is what it is.

Source isn't necessarily suppost to have that similarity, its suppost to remind you of HL2 instead, Think about it this way, in afew years people will be clinging to Source trying for the same reason as people seem to love HL1 mods.

Even now i prefer Source but that doesn't mean i dont Like goldSource, Ill play HL1 mods all the same, Also im watching this mod now keep up the good work.
