Reflectivity on the floor...the walls have it too, but screens just dont do justice. An upcoming news post will have a video illustrating the actual effect.

yes, screens always only see so much.
personaly i always prefer movie footage.
(very strange that most people here on moddb don't watch the movies, and only look at the screens. guess this has to do with that there internet connection is not so fast)

great textures!

This Mod is meant to be as far frpm HL2's atmosphere as possible. Everything is crisp, with what destruction there is having obviously occured very recently. Its a very distinct art style as well. I dont intend on changing much about those two aspects as they are major components of what makes the Mod what it is. I have a slew of textures that would be great in the HL2 universe, or ny run-down smosphere, but thats not this Mod. Parts two and three will have some run down, dirty locales, but not this one.

Loox nice man! my question is, in your testing w/ the level details, the enemies, weapon fire, shadows and all that stuff, what is the frame rate like ?

Thanks everyone :)

The framerate hovers around 200fps; sometimes more sometimes less. Each map, as in areas between loads, is only about 15 minutes of gameplay. The geometry is fairly simple, and Ive adjusted the lighting effects down to something that shouldnt strain older GPUs.

Thats always been one of the major goals of this Mod; to provide a good balance of optimization as opposed to appearance. I will be testing this on 2 other rigs prior to release, one a single core machine with a GT 440 and the other a 2.0ghz dual core machine with a mere 9300M GPU. I dont expect the other two rigs to run this Mod at max specs, but I do expect to have it look nice with reasonable framerates as well :)
