We are pleased to say that Missing Information has been approved through Steam's Greenlight program! In just two short weeks after submitting the mod, we reached 14th place on Greenlight's top 100 and got final approval on October 1. This will allow us to fix bugs and push out updates sooner than before rather than having our fans worry about downloading patches in archives. Thank-you to everyone who voted for us.

So obviously this means that despite what some people on the internet would have you believe, the project is not dead. Real life took priority for many of us after 1.6, but the hiatus from the mod has done us some good. Most of the old gang is back together along with some new faces and we are working hard on porting everything over to our new Steam version. The first release will be a fixed version of Missing Information 1.6 ported to the Source 2013 engine which will resolve all the missing texture issues caused by the SteamPipe update. We will also have some new maps included in this version. The first of these is "Streetwar" which is a combat map based on an old City 17 map with architecture that never found its way into the final game. The next is "Terminal" which is an adaptation of Team GabeN's elusive fix that features the gloomy City 17 atmosphere that everyone loves so much.

As well, for those who were worried about us selling out like Black Mesa did, this mod will remain a free download on Steam.

Yeah, that's right. We don't support SteamPipe but it should still run just fine.

I have a question. Now that this mod has evolved into more of a showcase of valve's original Hl2, will you guys be focusing more on showcasing ideas that were cut early in development, or things that were cut late in development, like near the time of the beta leak?

Small bits. Something that's actually possible to complete. You'll see more frequent updates now that we'll be distributing on Steam.

so your saying your abandoning the whole reason anyone wanted to play this mod to begin with?, wow smooth bait and switch there, no wonder your replaced the description with a trailer that says nothing.

You are chasing a phantom. The Half Life 2 leak is heavily fragmented and self-contradictory. That's what makes this the best way of presenting it to the world rather than shoehorning it all together and making big compromises.

I'd say the Greenlight approval says people want to play this mod regardless, so packup your **** and move on - we don't care.
Our description is the same its always been, if you knew how Moddb worked.

They moved from a pretty much impossible (as they see it, and I can relay to it) task to a lesser amount of work, that can be done GOOD. Anyone who's waiting for the holy storyline to be restored in one mod, are going to be disappointed (some will always be, no matter what), those who want quality product, will stay with this project.

This modification not only follows the original valve art style but is also keeping users up-to-date again. With moronic individuals posting 5's out of 10 because of their lack of interest or understanding of a project of this scale, this leaves fans with pretty much all the knowledge of the Half-Life universe to rate a 10/10 and give information to support. Half-Life 2 was to have a 50+ hour campaign and have over 20 weapons. Fun fact: The Borealis in fact was owned by a scientific research team…

Well, it is a great mod, there have really been some work in this, but there is also some big glitches that makes it... bad. The stalker-looking enemies is not well made, they doesn't look good, but a nice detail with the laser, but it damaging a little too much. And if you have passed a checkpoint/loading screen, you can't go back without it crashes (or at least it was what happened to me). Then your partner tries to walk down stairs, he just flyes around it, walking in walls and so on, undtil…

We reached 2001 followers on @ModDB. We're pretty satisfied with that! Thanks for your continued support!

@MFAQMovies alright, fair enough.

Nov 10 2015

@csnxs there's no plans to do so. What do you need in terms of models?

Nov 10 2015

@MFAQMovies Haha, yeah exactly that! I could probably hook you up, but you'd have to live with whatever might be missing.

Nov 6 2015

@MFAQMovies mainly because it isn't complete, so there might still be missing things.

Nov 5 2015

@ValveNewsNetwor hey Tyler. We saw your video on YouTube. What's up?

Nov 3 2015

@harcul Missing Information hasn't been released on Steam yet. You'll have to wait like everyone else. Sorry mate!

Nov 3 2015

@MFAQMovies Did you post on the Steam forums about this? I wonder if we already talked?

Oct 17 2015

@Kotaku, specifically @patrickklepek wrote an article about the leak. Missing Information gets an honorable mention. T.co

Oct 12 2015

@thurrott The 950 and the 950XL got USB-C so it'd make sense to keep continuity across all devices like they're trying to do with UI. Imo.
