Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: The Core 2014 - Sedatephobia?

7 comments by Urby on Dec 3rd, 2014

Several sites featured our news article as thousands of Internet goers shared and retweeted. Reactions were mixed of course. For every person saying that the GoldSource engine still held up today, another would ask "What's the point?"

We have voiced our opinions on the GoldSource engine before in our Q&A videos. It's a part of gaming history, it's classic, it's clunky, it's frustrating, it's... lovable. The sheer number of projects both long running and new on this now 16 year old engine just goes to show that several people still have a special place in their heart for what is essentially a finely mangled Quake engine. :D

We don't expect to get anywhere near as many votes as last year, but we appreciate all the support we get from our followers and if you feel we're still worthy.

For old times sake, here are some of the most popular images from 2014.

Are you gonna allow people to use The Core textures?

Just tidying up the comments to avoid confusion. There has never been any doubt about releasing the .wads. What we're still discussing is whether to release our original PSDs.

How's this project coming along? I've been watching this one for years and playing other awesome mods as well from other genres.

It's still going, slowly but surely. Real life events have reduced the amount of time we can work on it at the moment, but it will never die. :)

Can't wait for this mod.
The only thing that is bothering me is that GOLDSRC engine's limitations wouldn't make this mod into a kind of retro mod, that is being made for the last 15 years and would only include good mapping, modeling and a beautiful story.

would be amazing if some of the areas were cut and turned into cs 1.6 maps.

Uhm... ahem.

It's actually reversed though. This map was used as a base for one of the mods chapters, albeit with a hell of a lot more detail added.

Well, if it were to happen it wouldn't be until after the mod is out. That is assuming we don't start on another project afterwards.

Today's tip: Give every object it's own little story. Even if you don't narrate it to the player, it suddenly has a reason for being there.
