News 1 comment

Hello everyone,
I'm sure seeing a news update from this mod may bring back some memories of our past updates or more importantly the excitement you felt looking forward to release! When we first started out working on this mod, we were students (still are), and many of us were new to the modding scene. Nowadays we are still busy with our personal lives but have become much better at our skill-set since we first started the fifties. With that in mind I'm proud to be reviving the fifties. Progress will not be easy, you may not see updates as often as you would like to but I promise you it will exist. Stick with us!

Music like Bioshock (infact your gameplay video uses a song I very well remember from a bar in Rapture).
Shooting mechanics updated from the standard Source game (looks like this is more based on strategy and realism, considering it only takes three good shotgun shots to take down an enemy).
And an art style in the same deco as L.A. Noire.

Alright, I'm tracking :D

Ok not to be that guy... but did you just say, realism and 3 good shotgun shots to take out a guy in the same sentence?

If it was realistic the first one would have dropped him, they don't have any armor, or I should say any armor that could stop a shotgun shell from going into them.

It would also make the thompson a one hit kill, but as you can imagine that would be abused rapidly.

It's definitely a balance, of course a shot gun has the capacity to take a man down in one shot, but this is a game and we're trying to keep it that way :)

Sounds good, not every game needs realism, the point of it should be is the game balanced and fun to play, I was just saying if it was realism, everyone would want a tommy gun just because that .45 firing that fast... its not pretty for people on the recieving end.

It's realism with gameplay in mind.

Any chance you guys might also include a Mauser C96 or Mauser 712 pistols as well? They were rather popular export hand guns though out the 1st half of the 19 century IE from 1899-1961.

Heres are some images of the 2 guns and also note that they were chambered in 9x19mm para. as well as 7.63×25mm Mauser AKA .30 Mauser automatic.

We may add those in a future release of the game but they will unfortunately not be in the first release of the mod
