Magnusson needs Gordon to look for Kleiner, because he has disapeared. The last time he did see Kleiner was when he spoke about going to the Borealis to blow the ship and everything inside up. Gordon needs to travel by airplane to the North pole and find Kleiner, and save the ship. Will you be on time? And will you find out what the secret cargo is that is inside the ship?

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.

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.

I don't really get why kleiner wants to blow up the borealis, didn't he say he wanted to use it against the combine in ep2?

Your right, so silly but i made the mistake of thinking that dr. Magnusson wanted to keep the ship and Kleiner to destroy it. I now know its just the other way around. But its way to late to change this. So, my mistake, but i just have to leave it now as it is.

Well, it's not much of a stretch to assume that when Eli Vance died, Kleiner wound up having a change of heart and sought to follow through with his old friend's last wish. I also don't recall ever hearing Magnusson voicing an opinion on what to do about the Borealis in Episode 2, so it still works.

This morning i did receeve sad news;

Patrick Star (Kenny Alvarez) has passed away.
He always did comment in a very friendly way on my mod(s) and we did write pm's to each other here on Moddb. He wanted to port all of my maps from coastline to atmosphere to synergy so people can play it co op.
But he never was able to finish it. I don't know more about how and or why, i only receeved a pm, from a family member i assume, that he had passer away. He was a nice and creative guy, we will miss him. For sure on Moddb, because he was a very active member and always had a nice word to say.

His site can be seen here;
Moddb.com

(and for sure will this mod be released this year Gamerzoey, i am aiming before summer. And although i do understand what your saying Koranis i do hope people will keep following my latest mod progress. Because i always look forward to comment on a new update. Speaking of which, i will place this week a new one. Have made again much progress!

The best way of waiting for it is to stop following this mod and forget it completely. This way the author can take all the time he wants to put it together and release it when it's ready. And when he does, it will be a nice surprise for all those who are waiting for Godot right now :)
