Yeah, i wish you good luck with this project. It looks stunning.
The Trailer is amaizing. Oh and you should redo some of your textures or atleast search for help because the lab textures and the generator looks pretty bad. Dont get me wrong thats only how i see it.
If you still need testers when you go into alpha, feel free to contact me i could give you a big list of stuff that can be fixed when i test it. If you like ;)

Thanks, dude! The track is called Lilith, and it was composed by one of our favourite artists, Varien, and used in The Core with his permission.

That looks spectacular. I know Archie has some previous work in television, and the little camera-tricks prove it.

Hey, how was the vertical lazer-layer-mageg done at 1:69? It, to me, looks like you had a non-physical plane animated to go down-wards, with an animated decal overlayed.

Which bit, sorry? 2:09 is the title.

That's odd, even though I said '1:69', it goes to 2:09. Just navigate to it manually.

Edit, okay, my mistake, 1:58

Ah the scanner! It's pretty simple, just an additive non-solid brush with a lightly animated texture on it.

You can just imagine the sequal using the HL 2/3 Source Engine.. "THE CORE: Ashes".. it could be a "City2" escapee/s (could make it 2player coop) who stumbles into Black Mesa somehow and needs to escape the facility before the remaining Xen Army finds you, weapons and ammo are scarce (weapons and ammo pickups stay during MP but can only be picked up once). In this sequal the Black Mesa Facility is your sandbox, journey through the whole facility to find your way out, even use the remaining portal technology to advance greater distances, but The Core is offline, an optional objective "Restart The Core" and return full power to the facility, then run for your life. You could even bring back Shepherd as the main character and get him to say "Oh sh** not this hell hole again" when you stumble into the lost facility.

Impresive Trailer Like your mod sooo much. BUT ! I hate the M16-M4A1 from the HD pack... It just don't fit the classick Half-Life feeling. If you guys can make a MP5 smg it could be 100 times better... Oh and that SPAS-12 is awesome did you make it ? Or just recreate the model and texture ? By The Way... I can't wait 4 that mod ! Oh and will be there some parts from the HL universe like HL , HL:BS , HL:OF , HL:Decay ??? Ok next Q. New types of zombies ? Because i don't want to se the same zombie every time... Easter eggs ? Yes or No ? Oh and sorry 4 my english...

Thanks. Archie put a lot of work into the trailer.

With regards to your other points, the m16 stays I'm afraid. Our developer has just finished coding it to use separate ammo from the pistol and do more damage as well as slowing the fire rate. This essentially makes it a new weapon. If you really don't like the model then you can change it when the mod is out.

The SPAS12 is from the official High Definition Pack from Valve and Gearbox. It's been edited so that the stock is unfolded.

The trailer contains an area from the original Half-Life tram ride, remade to an almost HD degree. This is the only area from the official games that appears in the mod.

There are four zombie variants in total. Scientist, Security, Soldier and Admin.

Naturally we are cramming in a ton of easter eggs, parodies and secret areas.

Thanks for your questions.

Description

We want to thank the phenomenal community of ModDB so much for helping us get this far - we would have given up on this mod long ago if it wasn't for your unparalleled support.
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,
Archie
