Thanks so much, I really appreciate the comment! I learned a lot of lighting theory in film school & in my day job. Lighting a scene in a game isn't all that different from lighting a scene for TV. You're still trying to highlight certain things, obscure others and create a mood in the room. It's also a lot of fun to simply whack a big spotlight behind a metal grate and just see what happens!

Indeed, the lighting in this and the rest of the images is just amazing! It is interesting how you implement what you have learned in theory into each of your maps. Light is one of the key factors to make a "living" and moody room and I can say, you nailed this one! Amazing work Archie, keep going!

Looks really promising.
I'm sure The Core will be a welcome addition to Half-Life mods.
I would definately give it a try as I still like to play HL1, however I'm pretty bored with the original campaign.
I have to say the screenshots shows some serious detail, in my opinion you made a miracle with this old engine, very well done so far.
Yes, we don't need no SSAO and other resource-hungry fancy stuff to make a game good-looking!
