Steam, Tracks, Trouble & Riddles (S.T.T.&R.) is a single player adventure mod, based on source engine (Orange Box) by Valve. It combines two types of game play: an adventure game with complex, 3D-interactive riddles in a fantastic environment and a simulator for track based vehicles.
Now the main character "Easy Rider"is living in the first chapter of the mod I am currently working on. Sound recordings were made, and the first entrance scene has been done.
Sometimes I am a snail, the progress of this mod do not made me happy this year. My computers graphic card died in summer and it needed some weeks to get it back on track. Then it is far more time consuming to build the logic structure and scripting the logic events for the riddles. The behavior of the character "Easy Rider" needed a lot of testing in the last months, Addidonally I was blocked by the source engine updates, but now this is fixed.
Anyway, this mod is not dead! I decided to release the first chapter as a playable demo, when it is done and tested and works well. It will be short, but serving the "taste" of this mod.
You will find some images downloaded right today: A screenshot of the character in the opening scene and early drawings of the mod concept: Some vehicles are shown you already have seen, modelled and implemented in the mod. Some have still to be build for chapters to come. Like the "Nasty Opponent", which shall chase you.
And some of the vehicles won't be build, because they didn't made it to the final concept.
Have some More!
There are some character concepts. If someone can deliver a time-machine, which extends my day up to 36 hours, I can implement them all into the project.
Thank you for watching,
Good Night & Good Luck peegee1
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Steam, Tracks, Trouble & Riddles. We love games like Half-Life 2: Episode Two that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
