This mod will start were the original Half Life2 episode 2 ended, with the death of Alyx her father. She became sick by the loss and layes in bed. 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.

So, from using Spy's answers, and the game footage, I have come up with this headcanon, of which I believe is compatible (but not necessarily true canon) with Spy's canon:

1. Mossman is dead. In fact, she died back in Episode 1. Kraken Base was steamrolled by the Combine, looted for information, and then leveled. If Mossman does make an appearance, she will be a random zombie you will naturally crowbar in the ice somewhere. Kraken Base itself, at best, will be a cold Ravenholm; at worst, it will be a hole in the ground.

2. White Forest is abandoned. Since the Combine Advisors would never allow the base to still stand due to the victory of the rebels there, all the personnel left. Kleiner changed his mind on the Borealis, deciding to destroy it instead of save it. Kleiner then left with a large rebel contingent to help Mossman. Alyx, Magnusson, and Gordon go to a house nearby to bury Eli and consider their next move.

3. The Combine themselves are out looking for the Borealis using information from Kraken Base.

Feel free to note any contradictions with official canon and Spy's canon.

Now your questions I_Jedi, let me first thank you for asking them. Let me see how far i will come with answering them. Maybe i can't asnwer them both to indeed spoiling things, as you said your self. Lets start with nr 1;

- I try to give a closure, probably not the one people hope it will be.
My main problem is not that i can't think of one masive end but to
develop one. I am mainly a mapper, so i need to search on line for
models etc, to use in my story line. And many things are not there to
find. So i had to tone down my story so to speak. But, the mod is called
Ep3; The Closure, so it is a closure.
-"Will the Borealis arc be resolved"
am not sure what you mean with this.
- War with combines will be solved.
- Mossman will not have any role in this mod, sorry for that. Would make
things to complicated for me. I am a one man mod team, so i had to cut
out a lot of ideas that i had, one of them was a role for Mossman .
- Kraken Base, same story as with Mossman.
- Ofcourse will combine hunters apear, when you mean the Hunter npc, they
are a big part of ep2.
- Gman, yep, he has a role to, .....
- human rebels have a very small role in this mod. Simply because i
personaly hate team fights, mp moded games. I like to play and fight
lone, kill each enemie myself, My mods are know for this.

thank you so much for following this latest mod of mine. i am working on a new update here for this week. with new footage.

Thanks for commenting guys, and sorry that it took me some time to reply but i have been relocating my old father (82) the last 6 days from one home to another. Was BRUTAL! Haven't used my computer for anout a week, what is insane for me, but, i am back now.

"When valve won't do it, better call spy"
Funny, thanks!

And this mod does indeed get somewere now, finally!
Had to change a lot of things over time, because i couldn't make what i had in mind, or because things in my story were not right for the HL2 universe. So, that took a lot of extra time.

I_Jedi, i will answer your questions in a new comment because we can only use so much letters in one comment.

I have some questions that hopefully aren't too spoilery:

1. This may seem obvious from the title, but will there be closure to Half Life 2's story arc?
1a. Will the Borealis arc be resolved?
1b. Will the war with the Combine be resolved?
1c. Will Mossman appear or be mentioned? If not, will her fate be implied?
1d. Will Kraken Base (Mossman's base) appear or be mentioned?
2. Will Weather Control, Air Exchange, or a similar structure make an appearance?
3. Can I expect the appearance of Combine Hunters?
4. Other than any appearances for the plot, will there be those "hidden in plain sight" appearances of Gman?
5. Other than the human rebels in the intro, will human rebels appear?

Also, I am very excited for this mod's release. In fact, I'm planning to create a TV Tropes page for it when I play for the first time.
