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?

7 comments by SPY-maps on Mar 18th, 2014

I am very sorry that it took me nearly a half year to come up with a new update. Maybe it looked like i haven't been working on this mod but nothing is further from the truth.

 The last 3+ years i had a great intro cutscene in mind, but having a idea and really developing it are 2 completely different things as we all know. I knew it would be very complicated to make this intro and that it would take a lot of time.

 But i never realised how much it would take till i was actualy working on it. Many, many times i had the idea of deleting the whole intro, and just tell the story with some text on screen.

But that is so not done anymore, when you ask me. So i kept going, day after day, week after week, month after month.

And after 4,5 month of frustrations it finally is done. You can see the full intro movie here.

I know, a lot of people don't like cutscenes, and specially not long ones. But, there are also many that do like them, as i do. And i LOVE to make them.
And i have to be honest, i can only make a insane large project as this, when i can do what i like best. However, i tried to compromise. I made each scene as short as possible, most are between the 3 and 5 secs long and are full action. No long scenes were nothing happens.

I will not get in to details to much, but it was the most difficult and complicated mapping i ever have done till now. The output commands will be somewere in the 500 or so and i used 53 camera entities to film it all, (53 !!!). I hope you like it, and i hope it does set the scenery well for the rest of the mod.

For those who do have a slow internet speed and can't stream this movie, but still would like to see it. For those i have uploaded the MP4 video file, you can download it from here and watch it on your pc; Gamefront.com

Now that this cutscene is done i finally can start with puting the mod together in total. So, a lot has happened over the last few month and the progress was quit large.

For some odd reason the video doesn't work here on Moddb, have contacted Moddb about it. In the mean time you can watch it on my YouTube channel;
Youtube.com

or download it;
Gamefront.com


Thank you for watching and reading,

Couldn't edit my earlier comment and wanted to add something;
i just noticed that your 6 March comment says;
"Still, Great Work pal!"
And now you come back with such a big negativity, guess, like i already said,
your just angry about something else and does take it out on this mod. What is ok ofcourse, i really don't mind.

Wow Guest, seems your quit angry.
I did get a lot of great compliments on SM, that you didn't like it doesn't mean it was bad. But hee, its free to comment here. Sorry you don't like my mods, please just don't play them anymore, thats all i can say.

By the way, this new mod is not a sequel to my latest SM mod.
It is a sequel to ep2, and SM was a sequel to ep1.
Love sequels to original episodes!

thanks for your 2 cents,
Leon

4Kingal, thanks for the great compliment and asking about a release date.
I would love to give you a exact date but then i would have to guess. And experiences tells me that almost never such a date is kept. What i can do is tell you that i map for 7 to 11 hours a day for the last few weeks, like a crazy person, haha. There is still 2 months work for sure, but i do my very best to get it released before the summer.

You could be right Guest, i did get some of the weapons from Gamebanana, ofcourse with permission of the developers. Were they did get there sounds i don't know. And some weapons were made by John Zemlinsky.

As some of you know is it quit some time ago that i uploaded a last news update. Have been working very hard on a new large update and it is almost done, will show this one this week.

Thanks Guest, for your kind words, and your right, it will be released when it is done and not a minute before that. Glad to say that after 3+ years the works is almost done.
And GreenCultist, your right. I remembered it wrong, and ones people did point the problem with Magnusson and Kleiner out to me it was to late.
Hopefully people will not make a big problem out of it.

thanks for commenting!!

Leon ... thank you very much for all your contributions in the Mod scene. Your work is fantastic and you should be proud of it even if your life-style during that period was self-destructive. I am glad that you finally managed to get that monkey off your back and applaud your decision to get it out there for all to know ...a first step on the road to recovery.
I await patiently for this release and expect it will be ready when it's ready and not a minute before. As others here I wish you all the best.
Rock on !
