Progress Update 3.5

News 10 comments

Programming Progress 03 still isn't done yet, but we haven't been doing nothing over the past months... For the most part.

The video

We were playing Paint the Town Red when Brodie wanted us to talk about Shaft, and then this video was forcibly created against its will.

Behind the video

While the video is all over the place, we did show off some areas being worked on, and some of the new enemies that were going to feature in the next programming video. We also showed some of the models being worked by Brian, and Brodie, like the parasite, and CIA female soldier. I have a picture below to show those off in case you don't care to see this particular video:

We also have some mapping done by Jackathan, and you should see some screenshots later on the mod page.

Help Wanted

If the video doesn't show you the current state of our maps (or lack there of) this is where I will say we are lacking in the maps department. I originally was the mapper for the team, but then I became the programmer, and then became sort of a team lead for what plans to take, and dealing with other developer issues. I don't like having the lead badge since we are all important, but the main thing is I don't have the time I used to have to get the mapping done. That's why we are asking for one, maybe even two mappers to join the Freeze team. If anyone is at all interested then drop me a PM here, on Discord, or on Steam. We also have a few requirements to join the team so please read these bullets, and make sure you agree with them before sending a message.

Requirements

  • Have a decent level of experience with Hammer, or J.A.C.K.
  • Be able to use Google Drive to sync files with our developer folder.
  • Have some level of online activity (not going offline for months at a time pretty much).
  • Maps you have made (even if unrelated to the mod) are welcome.

Our Discord & conclusion

For those of you that may not know what Discord is, it's pretty much a Teamspeak, Skype, message board, mashup thing. We made a Discord for the team a while back, and never got around to really announcing it here. This is a good way to get in contact with any developer, or see any WIP stuff since we always post it there. I highly recommend if you are planning on joining to get the desktop app instead of using the in-browser app since the browser version is very unstable and many features don't work depending on your setup. Other than that I don't have much more to cover. I hope to see you all around for then next update. I promise it should be a good one! Anyways, I'll leave you with the links to the app, and our server.

Sometime? I have a major case of burn out on this mod, and have had it for a while. I did a ton of work on a.i back when the 2nd programming video came out. But it all went to being useless when something happened to my SoHL code base, and I wanted to start clean on the cleanest base possible. Turned out to be a problem since I don't want to re-code all my work again.
I have a few other things I want to get rolling on my YouTube, then maybe I will be back at 100% for Shaft. I thought about doing small videos showing each individual monster (Programming 3.1 3.2 ...) if that would keep things updated.

It would be kinda cool, just do some small work. That's the problem with a lot of mods. People do a CRAP ton of work at once, get bummed out and cancel a 90% finished mod which just needed a bit of polish and some maps... Look at raising the bar! (well it wasnt like almost done but hey) It looked absolutely fantastic and healthy! Developement was steady! And bam. Out of nowhere. It's dead. Please, either do some small stuff or get a break. I don't want this mod to die.
