After 5+ years of development finally the time has come to talk about releasing Episode 3.
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?
As my drawings above already stated am i very sorry, and that is the understatement of 2015 to say the least.
On Aug 10th i promised;
"... i can say it will be at least next month, September 2015. I hope it will be the first week of the month, but it could also be the last week of it. "
Well, its 30 September now. Where is the MOD ?!?! I hear you think.
Clearly, as to my big regret you are used by now of me, its still not finished. Please know that from the 30 days this month i have been working for 26 days, 10 hours a day, to get it done in time. The last week it even did give me stomach pain because the more time flew by the more i realised i couldn't deliver, again, my promise.
How much time do you need then, again ...?
I hear you think then, well, as i said above in my drawings. It will not be months, not even weeks as in 3 to 4. I really do think that in a week i could be there. But, history has learned us not to rely on my gut feelings. So its best to not predict anything, ever again concerning a release date of this mod. All i can say is to tell you what still needs to be done. Well, there are still about 6 level changes that need to be placed. One level needs to be cut in 2 parts because of to much enddata and a radio message (.wav) needs to be placed. And last but not least, a face poser scene with Kleiner needs to be looked after. Because this scene worked fine till i just tested it last week, suddenly it doesn't work anymore. All i can think of is again, a Valve update that screws things up, like is nothing new by now. Ones this is all done i have to think of a few chapter names so Baltic can finally add them to the mod structure.
And that is about it.
By the way, the drawings above i didn't make now but back in 1988. They are part of several small cartoon stories that i made that were published in a Dutch cartoon book for adults called Striptuur. All these cartoons are added to the mod as eastereggs.
Sorry that i don't have any new material of the mod to show. There is more then enough to show, but making such a large update with screens and a video takes at least a full day of work and its best i spent each hour on the mod now instead of making fancy updates here, sorry.
I can't stress anough how much i regret this all, i am really very disapointed in the whole release process. I really do hope that you aren't to mad and willing to stick with me a littlebit longer. Thank you for reading this,
