Raising the Bar is a mod based off of the idea of amalgamating the earliest concepts of Half-Life 2 into a coherent story. This mod is not a leak-fix, nor is it a concept art recreation gallery; it will be a full story with inspiration from the old material as well as our own ideas of how to make it all fit together.

Watching paint dry; it's what we do around here. You all asked, and we answered. Time for less paint, but more often!

Hey everyone,

So recently we've been getting a lot of feedback regarding the frequency of our updates. Many of you called for more frequent, smaller posts. So we're starting on that road as of now. As always, we can't guarantee that we'll be able to put out updates with any regularity, as our update history shows, but we will surely get stuff out when it's deemed ready.

Today's spotlight is some of the textures that Megamawman has been making for us.

More to come soon, so stay tuned!

I actually dislike crazybump. I sculpted all of these using NDo and the made the main texture with Photoshop and DDo. Everything you see was made from scratch.

they Look great, but not for raising the bar (gets hit with -votes, even though he's just sharing his opinion) In my honest opinion, everything outside the inside of combine buildings should be in shades of yellow brown due to the pollution of the combine Air Replacement.

Just my opinion though...

We're eventually going to have many more textures done for the mod; many of them will have that worn down look to them. One could also wonder how the air would react with non-organic objects indeed, although there would likely be a few types of materials that could withstand that for some time (not saying these would be that kind of material).

I just did some late late night interneting. Well listening to a "new" genre of music I found, called retro wave. Finding and reading super into Raising the Bar book sorta causing some sort of awe and wonder filled euphoria. And then I found this possible, future mod.

I'm excited to see this come to forewishen.

Also terrified.

That's enough internet, Gordon. GET AWAY FROM THE- shutting down... Attempting shutdown. It's not! It's not shutting down!
