My name is James Nolan. I live in an old apartment in Saria, a nice city where people live happily and peacefully. I was born in 2011, a year after World War III ended. My father, Maurice, was the commanding General of our army, and we won thanks to his strategic intelligence. He lived happily with me and my mother, a woman he loved very much, and held her very dear.
Then she died in 2018 due to a severe heart-attack. My father became depressed and was enraged easily and often. After a couple years, he vanished, leaving me alone. I had to live in an orphanage until I turned 18. There, however, I had met my best friend, Harold Dasher. We grew up together and planned what we were going to do when we got out. We went to college, Harold was taught in the ways of science. I tried it, but it didn't appeal to me very well. I decided to join the military, and learn how to protect people, just like my father had. However, that was one goal I had in my head since I was a kid. To find my Dad.


Okay, I'll go ahead and say this right off the bat- This mod will most likely NOT have any of my own models, for NPC's or weapons. I will re-skin all of the NPC's, and some models. But that's it.
This is my first mod, so I do intend to give you some nice levels, along with a great story and voice-acting. Yes, I know that another Half-Life 2 mod will be slightly boring, but this is more along the lines of testing how making and creating a mod is like. Hopefully my next one can be more creative. =P Well, I hope that some people will enjoy this, and if they do, I'll be quite content. =D

*I figured out how to edit this, so I put the story here.

Hey guys, I'm sorry I have no new news to show off. I'm working on more...behind the scenes stuff, I guess you could call it, such as voices for this first part and I'm also fixing up the level. Thanks to OverturnStick, I have a whole site full of new textures to put in my building, so I'm going to be working with those as well.
I'm also trying to fix up the already-shown custom skins for the NPC's. Along those lines, I'm working on new hand skins, so you won't have to have the boring HEV suit, which would be strange considering you are not Gordon Freeman. Sorry. =P
Another thing I am trying to figure out how to do is how to make a custom HUD. I'm sure I'll get that working soon enough, and once all these are done, I can continue work on the first level. And, of course, show them to all of you folks! Have a good day, peoples, and soon enough the update will arrive for those who care! =D

Unfortunately, I haven't been working on this for awhile; all of my steam files were deleted a couple months ago which made me lose everything (which, honestly, wasn't a lot anywho), and I haven't had a lot of time on my hands recently. However, I'm working with some modeling programs, so hopefully I'll come back to this later when I can have my own weapons and NPCs. Thanks a bunch for watching this, though! ^_^

So basically any game that does not have custom stuff is garbage? That is not necessarily true at all, and I already said I do not have the money to pay for an expensive modeling program. So why don't YOU get out, and stop wasting my time. Don't play it if you don't like it. Plain and simple.

Haha, thanks very much =D What do you mean by "the Torrent is the way to go"? I don't really know what torrent is, so if you don't mind could you clarify for me? =P Thanks

Just get XSI for modeling, Gimp for textures, Audacity for sounds and you should be set to go

Yeah, I have a place for textures now, thanks to OverturnStick, and I do have audacity. I've tried the Mod Tool for XSI, but so few people use it it's hard to get help. I suppose I could try it again, though. It'd be nice to have some custom props. Thanks! =)
