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....

Single player NS

What it needs

Mappers
Texture team
Sound team
PR Dude
The NS Team to help with code work, possibly making NS 1.2 compatible code, so we can work in scripted, and SP stuff
OR
Make a mod using ns models, sounds, sprites, etc, though doing a completely different lot of code – though this won’t have options like commander mode, way pointing, and all the stuff that makes ns what it is.

What it is

Single player version of the Natural Selection RTS/FPS mod for half-life

What team you play

I hope both teams, though marine is probably the easiest, as you get to shot the aliens, and the story line is from the TSA marine point of view

How do upgrades work?

Planning on making a certain amount of maps into a mission, where collected resources are traded in for items, and upgrades – this would be a combination of ns 1 – 1.04 Kharra build in the grog, and the upgrade options of the marines – such as having the ability to call on jump jets, or a HMG, if the rules are met for items to be dropped, also the ability to call on resource towers to be dropped, to collect resources at empty resource nodes. Phase gates might be out of the SP, though they could be used well, yet the question is how?

The team
NS Team - base code (hope 1.2), offical models, sprites etc (not know yet, wating on reply for code team)
amckern - map/code tweeker/lead
The Real Quasar - map
KuBaN - geting the storry line right
Asraniel - map (and a football team )
blueman - map
quazilin - map
Jessen - map/code tweeker
Insane - map (poisbly a team member depending on the story line and team)
Chicken Rising MOD model team - aditional models
oOTOo - map/storry line
Reese -map
anty - map

This idea was already projected by a team and was relocated to a smart and precise "NO" by Sir Flayra, and you can understand nsteam prefers to think about it by itself. Good luck if you keep on, anyway.

Just because he has said nothing about No doesn't mean he wants you to do it. It's like stealing because there's no police officer there to stop you.

If he hasn't said anything yet, it's simply because he hasn't had the time to go pouring over the entire forum looking for things like this. He has better things to do. Also he has already registered the copyrights to NS, so that officially means you're working with copyrighted material without permission.

Does anyone ever read the plentiful information on copyrights and mod dev etiquette around here? Yeesh.
