Most if not all of you think NovaCor met the fate of most other Mods. It may have; it may not have. NovaCor is not dead, but not alive either. I dont know how else to explain it.

What happened to halt development was the Source SDK update that happened right around when the Mod short-circuited. And thats about literally what happened. The update broke nearly everything I had done with the AI. Most of the maps were shoved halfway off the Hammer Grid, so they were completely ruined. It was like Valve decided to take months of work and just toss it into a blender, then turn it on while Gabe stared me dead in the eye.

But Im left with all the assets, the ideas, and the memory of what I had. I still have everything hiding out on a storage drive, occasionally peeking out, looking around and disappearing again. I still brainstorm levels when I have down time, and story, and all of the things I did before. I just havent done anything tangible in months....years even. The final nail in the - well, the Mod isnt dead so there arent any nails in any coffins yet. Anyway, the last straw was my animator and modeler drifting off and ceasing production. I dont do those things and having done everything else, there simply wasnt time and wont be time to learn to make complex models and animate them too.

And so, NovaCor is not quite dead, but not yet alive. It is in a slumber. However, I was bitten by the Modding bug and that never goes away. I recently dumped a few weeks time into a 7 Days To Die Mod. It was simple, remedial modding at best. Something I knew I could accomplish alone, or with the help of a few friendly forum-goers. And I did. That project will be live on my Dedi tomorrow.

And who knows. I may just fire up the Source SDK again.

I really, really want to have ironsights,leaning/peeking, and a few other little things that are present in just about every game we play anymore. The problem is, I am a novice at coding and havent even attempted to add anything yet. I am hoping I can recruit a coder to do some simple stuff like that; nothing too involved. I will be posting an Ad in the Moddb Forums soon...wish me luck!

Thank you :)

That indie game looks awesome so far. I read through a little and they said some inspiration was taken from Deus Ex, and the same applies here. I think its a little more subtle with my mod but its definitely there :)

Well, it took me over a year to get to this point, and Im sure I will improve in the future. Theres a lot of techniques I havent started to use yet.

If you ever need help with a technical problem in Hammer Ill be happy to help.
