Media Release 2015


Hi there and welcome to this year's first and, oddly enough, singular update!
There's a lot to talk about, so let's get right to it:

First off, we'd very much like to apologize for the lack media releases on our part. While we did intend to focus more on the actual task at hand and spend less engery on presenting it, we didn't expect things to get so busy and found ourselves pushing our updates further and further.
As many of you may have noticed, our website is currently down. That's mainly due to technical and usability issues. We are however setting up a new forum and hope to interact more with you guys once that's up.

NPC Recruit Operation Black Mesa: Recruit


But, and this comes from the whole team: We are very thankful and touched to see so many of you being as excited as ever, hanging in there, showing your support and even boosting us into the top 100 on MOTY albeit having heard and seen nothing for almost 2 years. It really means a lot to us and it's a great reassurance that a lot of folks want this mod to exist as much as we do. A big thanks to all of you; keep being awesome!

Status Update

So, what's the status on Operation Black Mesa and Guard Duty?
They are both being worked on with full energy and equal priority.

Guard Duty is being developed as DLC / expansion for the bigger and more content-heavy Operation Black Mesa, so it won't require an extra greenlight campaign. So if you are especially interested in Guard Duty, be sure to check on Operation Black Mesa; we report on both mods side by side as they are very close together in terms of progress.

As a token of us being very much alive and kicking as ever (or early Christmas presents if you will), enjoy the rest of our previews:

Will the introduction be the same as the original or will you be taking a different approach? It wouldn't bother me if you will keep the original approach, but I always wanted to see the massive military buildup heading to Black Mesa.

I think this is an awesome idea too, however it would also require a lot more work to do also and at the moment I think the team is quite busy with their work (and personal lives) but it seems like a good idea for the future.

Not to deride Black Mesa's work in any way, but I enjoy your team's artistic vision for the HL1 world far more.

This feels much more grim and closer to the original's style, while still combining game-play advancements and realism when needed.

i wish valve can release a secret new weapon to challenge the ever growing popular Battlefield 1 under the name Half Life

but the problem is half life is a modern shooter and most gamers prefer something more primitive

i want to speak in behalf of this mod by saying, this mod needs to be perfect and made well so stop rushing them to finish this mod or it will not be perfect have some patients please and stop asking for release dates and asking whether this mod is dead because this mod will never die and stop demanding updates on reviews and let all the focus go into creating this mod

don't rush the project the project is not to be rushed

basically this forum should be about creativity, on how we can recreate this mod to be perfect, we all need to get together with this project and think outside the box

well yeah we get that but rushing a mod and asking for just updates are diffrent things, sure its not ideal to put an update everyday, but like and update once every 2-3 months isnt bad u know, but if you COMPLETly be quite its making me hard to support this mod but i still have believe in this mod cuz the devs are telling us theyre doing it (but through comments...) i mean if the devs are busy with family and all they can just tell us, i mean we're all human beings with responsibilities and families and stuff, we'll understand, we all want them to take their time and make the game great, but we still want a bit of information, not to rush them

We've said multiple times how we work around our personal lives with the mod.
I have a family to provide for so I'm working from 6 till 5 everyday then working on this when I'm home.

I can understand how frustrating is on the updates, I felt the same when I was following Black Mesa or finding out info about the next Half Life, we don't just hold back to watch everyone squirm, there is method to the madness.

Thanks for hanging in there.
