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.

Please make low definition pack too. This looks really awesome, but I like graphic of original half life 1.

There are no plans for an low definition version with the initial release.

Modellers are more than welcome to create a model pack and we will put it up here if it's of decent quality. :)

It's not all about performance. Some people just prefer the original models for their style.

I agree with Urby here. But is nice once in a while to
have a diffrent model (HD or original)retextured and such. Like you did in the trailer . I think the changes
are welcome but hey the original is the best like

if gabe isn't offering you an office on the 65th floor with 20 yr-old d-cup blonde secretaries serving pizza and performing happy-thursday!-cocaine-lesbo-parties at valve after this is released, then he's a critically disclaimed dickwit..

or a desk.

Today's tip: Keep flat surfaces to a minimum when designing a room. A flat ceiling here would have been sooo dull...

RT @GameBanana: @sncgames">.@sncgames Hey guys! We just noticed your #HL1 mod - The core. I must say it looks pretty epic! Any ETA for release? [1/2]

Jan 27 2015, 10:49am

@GameBanana Much appreciated and thanks for the support. More exposure can't be a bad thing. :D

Jan 27 2015, 10:48am

@GameBanana Hey, thanks for the follow. We're working as hard as ever to get the mod completed but as yet we don't have a solid release date

Anyone awaiting more Rimming the Sky: Lord Casserole has tonsillitis so we'll call this an end to season 1. Stay tuned for more coming soon!

Mandatory key puzzles have now been officially cut from The Core. Players can still use keys to get to bonus weapons and ammo though.
