After seeing the spectacular progress our mapper Mambridge made on nether_01, we decided to record a little gameplay video to show once more what we are cooking up for this project.
Without further ado, take a look:
So, what did you just saw? This is nether_01, a map located in a sewer system, which will be repurposed and included in our Under chapter, set right after the teleport failure of Kleiner's Lab. Mambridge focused on giving a particularly sudden and visceral introduction to the Combine Manhack, an enemy which the player must expect to encounter quite frequently in the underground sewer portions of City 17.
And just because we are feeling particularly nice this day, here is another sweet preview:
As the title states, this is the replacement of JoshZ's E3 2002 Shotgun which was implemented prior to the mod. While the shotgun we were using beforehand was and still is a perfect, bugless model, we needed to replace it though due to the hands being from the beta and not from the retail.
While Mambridge was replacing the model and doing needed edits for Attachments he swapped out the stock to the retail and the shotgun shell casing to use the retail also.
Because lets face it: the beta one was... sub-par compared to the retail.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Insolence. 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).
