That was cool, finding all the stars in the sky.
Would be nice to make a full langth mod, and use the stars to navigat though forests.

I'm sorry if you didn't buy Orange Box, it's simply the greatest value in gaming ever. Plus, I use lots of Ep2 assets / HDR / color correction. Plus, the OB engine is a lot more stable than the Ep1 engine. Plus, the OB level editor is so much better to work with.

I keep getting an "Engine Error" saying "Could not load library client" every time I start it up. I have the Orange Box, and I've already re-downloaded it. If someone could help me, that'd be great. I really want to play this mod.

The problem is that the sdk didnt copy some dlls to the mod. Heres a fix, go into the mods root folder and find the bin folder. If it isnt there, make one. Then copy the client.dll and server.dll files from hl2 or a working mod and put them in the non working mods bin folder. Hope it works for you.

I enjoyed this mod very much, it was very creative and refreshingly original. I await the next installment with great anticipation!

Nice idea! I thought the music on the radio was very relaxing but I didnt like the way the sounds clashed when the game events occurred.
