Core-istmas 2015

News 10 comments

First of all, I would like to apologise for the terrible article title. I'm looking to get a job in journalism and apparently that is what they like to do...

Now, let's get down to business. Where is The Core? We know that things have been awfully quiet on our little mod page. Trust me, we know as much as anyone that it is awful when you don't hear anything. 2015 has indeed been a very busy year for the SnC team. While work has been continuing on The Core, we've taken to working behind the scenes, rather than publishing every little thing and posting a news article every time something significant comes up. We've been focusing on the ACTUAL MOD, rather than just trying to promote it. Having said that, here are a couple of recent shots to confirm that we are still powering through

Christmas 2015 Christmas 2015


It is for this very reason that we have remained relatively quiet during the MOTY voting period. While we are very happy to have gotten into the Top 100 upcoming mods for the past four years, we simply do not feel we have done enough in the last twelve months to deserve it, and it seems you agree.

We know that The Core has been in development for a LOOONG time, after all, we were there for most of it... and we know some of you are getting impatient with our consistent dodging of the whole 'release date' issue, but stay tuned.

2016 is looking to be a very promising year.

Hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year

Urby and the SnCGames team

Lot of negativity in these comments recently. As of right now, this is easily still my most anticipated Half-Life mod by far. Not everybody has enough free time to consistently put out media updates, and there are other sensible possibilities as to why they've been holding on releasing updates as well.

Judging by the media that's been released up until this point, the quality of the mapping here is ridiculous. I honestly think that you guys could get a job somewhere with something like this in your portfolio. I'm sure a lot of companies would be able to understand that working in an older engine makes mapping like this even more difficult. The guy who made Transmissions: Element 120 got an interview at Gearbox not too long ago.

8 year old development for a GoldSrc mod, with less and less releases 18 years after HL1, you know...

I understand how you feel, but this means absolutely nothing. The development of Black Mesa was way longer and certainly lacked consistent media releases, and look how that turned out. A lack of updates doesn't confirm a mod is dead in any way. Putting out high-quality media updates isn't easy when you don't have a large team or tons of free time.

If you want this mod to be released, then negative speculation isn't going to help at all. Maybe when the drought of updates extends past two years, then you might have a good reason to worry. But like I said, the devs have already put so much work into this mod that I HIGHLY doubt it's dead now. It's easy to forget how ambitious this mod is and how much they've already shown. I'm fine with a lack of updates if it allows the devs to allocate more of their free time to actually finishing the mod.

And as I mentioned, there are also other reasons why a mod may have a lack of media updates.

I'll continue to anticipate this mod's release. I don't mind waiting when the end product is of such high quality as what they've shown so far. Hell, I could probably wait a few years if it means that the end product is going to be as good as it can be. Don't forget that the people making this mod have lives to live and aren't making money off of this project in any way.

Guess I need to make a deathmatch map now then. The good news is, I can do that and I'll still be working on The Core. Kids, always Recycle!

After 18 years, Half Life Deathmatch is still some of the most fun you can have online. Thanks for the server @ArchieSnC
