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 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;
or download it;
Thank you for watching and reading,
