posting this here to help the cause:
The Mini Redux Task Force has one goal condensed into a single project: project BBB
Project Bringing Back is a Bitch aim to revive old Half-Life mods by creating updated content for them, allowing younger gamers to discover wonderful mods that have been forgotten for too long
We shall seek approval, we will always seek the original author(s) of each mod we are working on, getting their approval, ideas or participation, their words matters
We shall credit, we aren't content thief, if we use anything that we haven't done by our-self we will credit the original author(s), regarding that matter we won't use anything hacked from an other game, except of the authors are ok with it (like Stalker for example)
We shall be organised, each mod that is being redux is lead by a single person, his role is to keep things organized and bring everything together
We shall talk, this is community project, ideas can be discussed, the leader have the last word
We shall be lazy, our work shouldn't take years, we will try to keep things simple correcting only bigger problems
The BBB project is a community project, it's mainly hosted on Half-life Creation here, feel free to join us, give us hand or lead a pack yourself.
Our packs are simple, the main goal is to allow players to discover old HL mods or to rediscover them, here is a list of mods that are being worked on :
Edge of darkness
Cthulhu: An Unspeakable Modification
Of course more mods will follow as well as dedicated ModDb pages
We do any kind of improvements to the mods, mostly model hacks, but we also redo maps, textures and sometimes even the code, literally anything that help the mod.
The model hacks are mostly done using regular SD content for half-life, sometimes the looks change entirely just so the model fit better in the mod, for example the an idea is to change the HEV model in Invasion to the old beta style HEV to give it a more unique look
Can you help?
Anyone can help, as said before this is a community project, even if you lack skills, ideas can help this can also be a good opportunity for you to learn
Join us on HLC Half-lifecreations.com, be warned we are extremely nerdy
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like [Mini-Redux] Half-Life: Invasion. We love games like Half-Life 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).
