im re-doing the mod. kthxbye. (this has a new map though!)
After waking up on Iris island, the only thing Chell remembers about why she's there is that she signed up to help with scientific research for the IRIS initiative, a classified research project by the Aperture Foundation For Science. She quickly realizes that the staff of the island have disappeared, and she is on her own, aided by the Tesla Device.
Welcome to The IRIS initiative, the portal 2 mod that will change the way you think about the portal universe. For the first time in years, portal fans will have to think with something besides portals- instead, they will think with doors.
(But not just doors.)
"Its a pretty damn cool mechanic."

credit where overdue: thanks to wormatt at gamebannana for the voice acting on the iris initiative project manager character guy.
Later today, I will be upgrading the mod to a modular update system that not only makes future patches and updates easier for me, but makes it easier for you to install the new updates and patches as they come. Included in the update are some visual changes to the environment that help to convey the setting a little better than the previous design; which lead players to incorrectly assume that the facility was in decay or ruin, whereas i was going for a facility that is fully functional, but exposed to the elements a little bit more. Here are some pics:
As you can see, there are now a couple of clearly defined types of areas, outdoor and indoor. Outdoor areas are rusty, slightly damaged, and occasionally show different degrees of flood damage. Indoors, however, the facility is completely protected, so everything is nice, clean, and functional. To download the new update, click here:
EDIT: Also, it is important as i release stuff that you install everything in the order it was released, because your computer will need to overwrite old files sometimes! whenever i release something, i'll be sure to write which number it is in the sequence so you can know for sure.
