taken from raising the bar:

"entire blocks from City 17 vanished into thin air as the Combine delivered the Citadel to Earth."

so yes, it came either from a portal, or was brought from space and dropped into earth. it's safer to assume it came from a portal because as far as we know so did all the combine, so we chose that.

is it just a sky box event or is the going to be like massive clouds of dust and stuff when its dropped

there'll be a dramatic shockwave of dust (we're thinking of making the vehicles fly away), color correction change and some other effects.

most of it will happen in the skybox but the flying vehicles and part of the shockwave happens in the play area.

it would be really cool if after it dropped you had to fight your way around in a cloud of dust like at the end of the battle in star wars episode 2 (if you have seen it of course)

I think having loads of smoke sprites would drastically lower the frame rates. Our particle dude Ghor will probably make a particle for it.

The scene could use some cinematic physics as well. Maybe a car smashin a building wall or a building toppling over, opening up a detour for you to move.

That's a good idea.

Yeah, there's a lot of potential to implement cinematic physics here. Cars flying, trees falling, building crumbling, etc.

Never enough cinematic physics. just when you thought you have enough of it, BAM more cinematic physics.

If I may so as to add to the train of ideas here,
Why not script some npc casualties. Like in hl1 where a half dead guy warns you about the tentacles. I was thinking that would add a bit more intensity and realism to the game. I'm thinking along the lines of a guy who is covered in blood from the waist down and is crawling to you when you reach a scripted waypoint. (Man, does it make me a bad guy to suggest such things? Asking for in-depth suffering npcs?)

Looks good overall.
But don't you think the map atmosphere should be a bit yellow to fit Citadel's effects? And the fog layer at the bottom of The Citadel, it should be slighty grey.

we're getting a skybox specially for this scene. the part where the citadel's falling is almost red. we're also gonna work more on the color correction for this part.

looks epic! im glad you guys are staying as close to the storyline as this! i mean this is straight out of raising the bar!!! btw, shouldn't the citadel be closed! like at the beginning of HL2 when barney gives you the crowbar and the citadel from closed starts to open up?

it opens as soon as it gets here so it can deploy extra ships.

i think at developer comments in hl2 when u first enter the citadel the devs say that it is always dipping down, that's why you feel the shakes, its the citadel drilling.

When I read this in my updates box, I never thought it'd LITERALLY be falling. I thought you meant it would be destroyed...this is far more amazing.

Also, I always imagined that a base fell, and it turned into a citadel in a couple of minutes - transformers style. I don't think raising the bar ever said that it COULDN'T be that way. Anyways, this is still amazing. I wish we could move buildings like that. I'd be able to have vacations anywhere I want for FREE.

The Citadel transforming- even if only with a few sections connecting and expanding- would be goddamn awesome. Not that this isn't already, but that would just take it up another notch.

This is awsome,but something that might be cool to, is if there is a flash of light comeing from the portal, then you see the citadel taking form in some cool electric looking way.
