We are pleased and relieved to announce that Missing Information 1.6 is now available to the general public. The highlight of this release is of course the heavily overhauled Hyperborea chapter. We listened to your criticisms and what you will find in this mod is a rebalanced campaign with altered gameplay and a much better sampling of health and items, as well as numerous bug fixes. Yes, the crash bug in the last map is a thing of the past, and so is Odell's surreal descent down the stairs. Although admittedly the first year of this release's development was spent doing virtually nothing, we gained a few more team members and went into overdrive in the last year and three months with the determination to deliver something that felt as close to a polished Valve chapter as possible. We spent time coming up with a plausible story behind the Hyperborea, one that we feel is probably as close to Valve's original intentions as anyone is going to get, and we have done our best to ensure the gameplay and scripted sequences keep in line with this story. Many areas have received a visual overhaul as well and a sampling of new models and textures have been created to give the mod more of a distinct feel.

We hope you enjoy the updated Hyperborea. We feel confident in saying that it is the most polished example of fixed content from the Half Life 2 leak, but that is up to you guys to decide. We really cannot thank you fans enough for being patient in spite of our inability to keep true to our previous release dates. Download links can be found here.

I dont get why you "try" to recreate Half Life 2 original storyline, but realease a "Full" 1.6 version, where its only snippets.

I thought that this mod would fix the problems in the leaked maps and push it as a a mod. yes, there may be holes, but 6 maps isnt appealing.

You release a "full" version, that only has 6 broken maps. I needed noclip to progress at some points. That is not full.

And I am guessing you are releasing full versions, since you never say that they are alpha/beta.

Oh well, you did a good job, but you never pushed the mod trough. You just released a weeks (I mean the hours worth working on, does not include free time) worth of fixes and modelling.

It so sad that you do not make this a normal mod. If at least you did a normal first part, it would be ok. That would be more than enough for 3 years to enjoy. Imagine samuel talking to you for 10 minutes. Now you just released snippets that are enough to make you sad for 3 years.

The mod is really really underdeveloped. If you want to do a mod, you gotta do it. Yes, you can drop it, but either you do it or you just go away from modding forever.

So my point: The mod is short and moderate in quality. Its like a E3 Engine Demo, of a 10 year engine.

Yes you did some models, but just doing models and fixes to revive the HL2 old storyline ain't gonna work. You need to put time and effort into it, not fix some parts and release them as a mod. Those parts dont even make sense.

But the borealis chapter was awsome. I would **** my pants if it was realy included in HL2. That chapter is the only good part. Maybe even the best of all the HL2 revivals.

What "things" are you debating on doing and what does it depend on, if you don't mind me asking?

Can I use some of these maps for my own mod called Project Hyperborea?

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…
