As we shoot past the middle point of the month, Christmas is approaching rapidly and we are working on The Core harder than ever. Archie's ability to pile in the fine detail is unstoppable and you will be happy to learn that another of his fantastic "Evolution" videos is already in the making.
On my side of things, I have been working on the central dormitories and leisure areas of the central complex. In the closing chapters of the mod, the military are beginning to show signs of fatigue in their endless fight against the invading Xen forces. They are now focusing on fortifying their positions relentlessly and killing anything that they consider a threat.
Below are some shots that were uploaded earlier this week. When the disaster shook the Earth, the central dormitories and leisure facilities were undergoing some serious modernisation. Some areas feature a fresh new look, complimented by modern art and bright bold highlights. Others are yet to be touched, still featuring Black Mesa's familiar, run down, fifties appearance.
As always, these are work in progress shots and some of these areas have been edited already. However, please feel free to let us know if you think that a particular area could use some more work. Or, if you just want to suggest certain features for the leisure facilities and dormitories, feel free to pitch those ideas to us as well!
