I still haven't forgiven you for what you did on Starkiller Base. But thanks for the comment.

Nice work Archie, there is one minor little detail that caught my eye. Unfortunately, I don't know how to describe properly with words so I had to take my massive M$ Paint skill to show you what I mean : Image.noelshack.com

Ha, thanks! Yeah, it's a weird thing I only noticed in The Core relatively recently... We've done so many things to add detail, yet all our railing and ladders still use {transparent textures, when making them out of brushwork would be relatively inconsequential on performance. In fact, we practically already do, since the top and end rails of every railing are solid on all sides anyway.

Superb work as always :) . I love the nicely done pipes, the texture choices, all the cables and the openings on the ceiling. Awesome, just awesome :) .

The thing that totally sells me on this mod is that it seems to have such a wide range of environments, yet each seems to still capture the essence of Black Mesa so well. Excellent atmosphere. Everything you guys put out teems with detail and radiates quality.

Black Mesa's safety officers haaaate it. Some of the scientists try to throw Coke cans from the walkway down through the ceiling. It was all fun and games 'til Barney ended up in hospital.

Damn, Archie! Talk about an author who is responsive to the community. Either you're constantly drunk or you're simply a really nice fellow :D
