Natural Selection is an action-strategy game for the PC. It is a "Half-life modification", which means it is written on top of the Half-life game engine. "Mods" are a new sort of underground game development that enables small teams to create games using the technology of existing games. This means less expensive and lower risk game development, which allows experimentation and innovation. This arrangement also implies that "mods" are made as art, not for making money. When complete, Natural Selection will be released for free to all owners of Half-life, which is required to play Natural Selection. Game summary Multiplayer-only Half-life mod where one team plays marines and the other plays aliens. The humans must keep their cool and work together to assault an alien-infested spacecraft or colony. Marines vs. marines and aliens vs. aliens scenarios are also supported. "First-person strategy" with a real resource model and consequences for actions....

It's funny to see that some mod for the Gldsrc Engine releases their code before than the engine itself... Valve should learn from this.

Thanks, you really gained my appreciation.

Have fun and good luck with NS2 future and your future projects :).

Valve released the GoldSrc SDK in 2002, so I'd say they were doing the teaching here.

the SDK is half-life source code, it does not include the files to build the executable, and you cant modify all the properties of the game cause many things are out of the SDK of hl, studiomodel is the best example is really outdated and only a few excelent programer had write their own, with the full code would be easy to do awesome things for models
