I am recently developing QL2. I must say that I am still ALONE, but this time the mod will be less buggy.
I am planning to make this mod action-packed. You are again a HECU soldier.
The PLOT: After your failure at the white gate researches center, they lower your rank and send you to a small base in the desert. But suddenly, the XEN creatures begin to invade earth. And they attack to your base too. After defending the base, you go to the city and see how everybody became zombies. You will fight in open places more than in small boring corridors. the mod will take place in a city environment and in a military base. It is like opposing force but this time, you fight to save the world. not to silence black mesa.
You will not fight only as a ground based army. The fighting will happen also at the air between XEN aircrafts and F16's. I am planning to add sequences to this mod as I did in QL1 but this time, I will try not to make them buggy.
I may also add a part where you use a mobile anti aircraft system to fight against xen planes.
Since I am alone, you may get bored till I finnish the whole mod. So I will make a modular release(thanks to modDB for tips). I will first release a small episode. I am now working on maps.
(by the way you wont kill harmless scientists on this mod, you will fight as an army against XEN invadors.)
I have nearly finnished the coding part. I am using custom CS models for my weapon models. All melee weapon and firearm models are changed(actually to change the hands of the player, I had to change all of the models).
I may add other weapons too.
I am adding also some new textures and sprites.
My mod is based on spirit of half-life, a great modding tool. It includes particle effects and many more cool thigs like making gas come out of the bullet holes, and so on...
I HAVEN'T MADE THE WEAPON MODELS MYSELF I HAVE ONLY MODIFIED THE GAME TO USE THEM.
THANKS TO THE MODELLERS AT FPSBANANA.COM FOR THEIR MODELS.
NO NO NO THE MOD ISNT DEAD I AM WORKING ON IT; BUT IT WILL TAKE TIME!!!
Sorry guys, it is dead. I just can't work on HL1 anymore. There are no modding help sites left, no up to date modding tools left, and i really don't know how cry of fear team can keep working on HL1...
I can't map because of Valve Hammer Editor not working with ATI cards, I can't code because visual studio 6.0 is not supported anymore and new visual studios just don't work with HL1.
I may work on HL2 modding maybee.
