After some time of inactivity, we want to update you guys a bit on what is truly going on in the development of Insolence.

Posted by 95Navigator on Jan 31st, 2014

Hey all!

Things are busy over here. Very busy indeed. We have been working on this project over a steady rate, and we are managing to rack up some pretty nice progress and achievements that we are absolutely eager to show you. And it's not showing any signs of stopping, so, you can rest: we are nowhere near dead!

What about that much-talked update we are supposedly working on? Yes, it's coming. When? We can't promise anything for now. We want to present something more than spamming some images on our Image gallery, and we want to do it with professional presentation. So hang in there with us, we are as much eager to show our major strides as much as you want to see them.

We are also discussing the possibility of this update spanning several days of content showcase, and right now it's a very strong possibility! We have work to show and things to talk about on several chapters and concepts at ease, so... yea there's that.

Meanwhile, leaving you without nothing is far beyond our priorities so, here are some recent development screenshots for you. We leave it to you guys to guess the locations ;)

Moving on to other matters, we would like to conclude this post by saying: we are always looking for talent. Yea, kind of obvious but, really, we need people who are willing to make a commitment and help this project become the epic adventure we want it to be. Level designers, modelers, coders, animators... anyone with experience in modding is surely welcome to join our team. If you have worked up some Beta dabblings, or even if you have any crazy idea you want to share, don't hesitate in contacting us. We need it.

So, rip up that shyness of yours, and join our team!

- The Insolence Dev Team

Looking good guys. I do like what you've done with the Wasteland Depot there, it looks so much better than the fullbright leak one. Kraken isn't looking too shabby either :P

I wonder why remakes of the original HL2 storyline only started appearing recently, when the beta and the game itself has been out for so long.
Anyway, it's good to see that these mods actually look amazing, and I hadn't heard about this one 'till now, but I'll be sure to follow it.
Certainly looking forward to more of Insolence ;)

It really comes down to the Beta concepts being appealing and interesting to us and to many modders, so we are doing our own unique take on them.

Thank you for following us :)

I was mostly fascinated with the AirEx levels. They looked really awesome.
The Depot/Wasteland also looked real great, and that Depot remake mod by LexxoR was amazing. Missing Information also did a great job with the Borealis.
Other mods like Raising The Bar and Dark Interval are also really promising.
I really want to play a full remake of the original HL2 storyline.

They didn't start recently, really. There were a lot of mods which simply did not make it past several months, maybe a year of development. It's probably just you started noticing the leak mods recently. I can't say I recall any mods right after the leak or in a couple of succeeding years, but there were attempts at 2006, 2007, and practically every year after... some (Project 9) are even still in development (presumably) since 2007. Also interesting how you can weigh the amount of Russian mods alone. I think maybe the half of all the leak mods (including the dead ones) are the Russian ones. For some reason. Caste, Dark Atmosphere, E32K3, Old Story, Project 9, ШЛЫК's Airex, E3 2003 mappack for the Leak, Vertigo, Cremation, Dark Interval, Depot, some mods I don't remember the names of but there are some, and a lot of single-map fixes.

A reasonable amount of knowledge in Hammer (by this, I mean, we dont require you to show off your top-quality Valve masterpiece, but we require you to have a certain amount of skills to be able to produce work of your own), and of course, the more knowledge you have about the Beta concepts, the better :)
