I know, each time i try to not wait so long with a new updates and each time there are months between them. But, finally here is a new one, and its again a big one. There are 20 new screenshots for you to watch and even 3 new movies this time. One the 3 new levels, and one of Kleiner talking to Gordon and one from a rather large cutscene.

HL2 Ep3:

Please keep in mind as usual, that all footage is still WIP and doesn't reprecente the final mod.

The Releaste Date

I had made up my mind so hard, for so long. With the release date of this mod i would not make the same mistake as i made with all those previous ones. I would not talk about any release date up front, untill
the mod was really 100% finished. And although it was hard i kept that promise with myself, till last update 3,5 month ago. I was so sure i would be able to release the mod this fall, that i said so in a article
here, and in a movies credit text. And now i have to break this promise. You problaby already guessed it, no release this year. I had such big hopes, because after all, as a mapper/modder you make projects so people
can play them, and then you want to know if they liked it, and had fun.

I keep overloking how much it takes to complete a mod, in the sence of fixing and implementing the little things ones the mapping is done. There are so many few issues to look after, the last minute bug fixes, the new HUD, ss bumpmapping. All things that take more time as was planned, as always.
But you are so eager as modder to please the public that you keep making the mistake of promising things you can't deliver, on time that is. Because the mod is closer as ever, to be released.

All fine and well i hear you think, but when will it then be released??
All i can do is be honest and tell you what i personal think, and that is that i can finish the darn thing
at the end of next month January (2015).
Please believe me when i tell you that i am the most upset about this, it would have been so great when it could have been released at the end of this year. What a great holliday to release your mod, right?!
But, it just can't be like that. Quality is everything with this mod.

Know that it is not that i don't work hard on it because everyone tells me i am crazy to put in 10 hours a
day, and to be honest, it is also quit insane. But who minds, i just can't help myself.
So, please please bare a bit longer with me and soon you will be able to play a possible outcome of the
original Half Lifes episode 2, my episode 3.

It's sad that this awesome and unofficial HL2 expansion mod did not get into the Top 100 mods of 2014 (especially for upcoming).

Thanks for commenting Baracuder!
And don't worry, i will release this mod for sure. (Have released a ton of mods and mappacks over the last 13 years and this would be the first one that didn't get released, :) )

I had hoped to be able to release it this month, december.
But that is sadly not the case, i need a few more weeks for some small issues to fix or implement. So release will be somewere in january 2015, so next month.

I know, it has been 2,5 months already again that i placed my last update.
I am working hard on the mod ofcourse but have taken 2 days of to work on a new large update again that will be placed in a day or 2. So hopefully by
Friday it will be shown here on Moddb again.

As said, progress is going very well. 4 new very large levels have been added to the mod what makes the count of levels come to 25. Playtime of entire mod will therefore be around 18+ hours i assume.

In the new update i will talk about the release of the mod, and i need some advice about what to do with level 6 and 7.

see you all in 2 days,

So you're saying that the mod totals in at 25 maps? That puts it at more maps than both Strider Mountain (17 maps) and HL2: Ep2 (19 maps), and that's really impressive.

Are you by chance interested in having some custom-made skyboxes for your maps? I have Terragen 2 sitting on my computer, and I can easily slap some skyboxes together for free, if you want.

I am very sorry that i haven't commented on all comments here the last weeks but i made the mistake to look only at the comments made on the news page and not here. So you can imagine my surprice when i did see all these comments!!!

Thank you all for that. I am still working hard on the mod, daily. And i hope, and it really starts to look now that i can release the mod in december this year, so in 1,5 or 2 months time!!

So, please just have a little bit more patients. I work as hard as i can and i still try to keep the quality as hight as possible. So, progress is going very well. I will make a new news update next week so i can show you lots of new assets and maps, and, the final combine skins that i will be using in this mod. They really do look awesome!!

Thank you all for checking in and commenting, i reallly do apriciate it!!

Thanks Guest, i do my very best to get this mod released in december this year. And although the mapping is almost complete there still are a lot of small things to do. But, its exiting to see if i can get it on time finished and released. Or it will be at the end of the december, or the first week of January.

lets hope it will be december,
thanks for commenting!
