19 comments by Archie_SnC on Dec 12th, 2013

We want to thank the phenomenal community of ModDB so much for helping us get this far - I am being completely sincere when I say that if it wasn't for your unparalleled support this mod simply would not exist. Getting into the top 100 mods of the year for two years running is simply unbelievable.

As the mod has grown in popularity, so too has the realisation that this mod has to be the best we can possibly make it. Expectations are running high and we are trying our absolute hardest to create the  gameplay experience you folks deserve for supporting us. It's for that reason that we don't actually have a download link to give you just yet, but we hope that this trailer will in some small way communicate our passion for this and let you forgive us for taking so long to release the mod. 

With that in mind, here we have the first ever reveal of gameplay in The Core. You guys are amazing. Please vote for us in the Mod of the Year awards if you think we deserve it and have a god-damn fantastic day.

All the best,

Mod of the Year Awards

A couple of questions
Are you making the graphics better?
Will there be ragdolls?

Compared to the original Half-Life of 1998 I'd say the graphics are already significantly better. Wouldn't you? The mod features higher resolution textures which improve the lighting slightly. It also features HD and SD models from well known modellers such as Ambient.Impact and Romka, as well as prop models, some recycled, some brand new. :)

There are no plans to include ragdolls in the mod as this would require a lot of additional coding work.

Well the confusing thing is the textures look to good to be the origonal half-life looks more like the source version.

I'm confused on this concept is this Half-Life Source or Half-Life 1998 version?

The trick is to look at the top of the page where it says "The Core" and just underneath that "Half-Life mod"

Then smack yourself very hard in the face, then leave.

He probably didn't know there was a separate page for HL Source mods. I didn't know before.
