Update 9-29-2009

Funny numbers there. Well, Sense I doubt anyone is really watching this mod then the update is not for them. This update is more for the fellows at moddb who are watching for dead mods to delete. haha, So to you guys, hey there, don't delete this one, I'm still busy and a working away whenever I have time.

Overall I think the mod is about 70% finished.

Updated 4-6-09

This mod currently consists of 10 maps.

The first map is a giant computer that runs of source entity logic, that doesn't really mean anything unless you are a modder yourself and understand what source logic is. But I must say, it's one heck of a complicated thing.

So you start in the computer, for the first release there will only be 3 missions you can go on but I hope to update it as time goes by and add more missions. Because of the way the mod is constructed I'm free to build across a large area of different mapping themes and styles. Which in result give you a wide verity of different gameplays, Anywhere from navigateing through a maze of storage boxes, to launching an assult on the most powerfull race in the galaxy.
Then for those strange things I make that wont quite fit the part as a mission, I can add a strange effect and make it into a "game" that you can play on the mods computer.


Although it may look like I'm not doing much and it's taking forever for the little bits I have shown, I wanna tell you I am hard at work designing building and adding more content to the mod base. I'm hoping for a first release some time in the next few months.

I'm most certainly past the half way mark. :-D

Ohh and by the way, I post more content and update this place more often then here on moddb.

Indeed it is.
But I'm doping my best to be just like valve.... so, just like valve I'm taking forever to do anything and releasing virtually no updates.
But yes... There is work going on in the background as often as I have time to put into it..... That's the hard thing about being a solo modder.

Falleen9,
Heh heh, your right it's pretty hard to understand with what I typed. I'll re-type the thing later tonight and have my buddy throw it up on here.
But to answer your questions;

1. This is 257 years after the HL2 storyline. And because of the way I'm building the mod it's funny if I say Commander Andrews owns a peice of the Halo, from Halo. It doesn't really have anything to do with the storyline, but may if there are more episodes of this mod.
2. The world in which this mod storyline is set is a world where there are several aliens liveing in diferant solar systems throughout the galexies, and the hero of our story 'Commander Andrews' has a reputation throughout those galexies as a crazy earth man who has to much money and spends all his time shipping cargo from one solar system to another colecting rare items for his personal library.
3. His name is Andrews, and thats all. Due to his reputation his title is 'Crazy Commander', So I call him Crazy Commander Andrews.
4. After Gordon freeman wipes out the combine from earth in the hl2 storyline more aliens fight over earth for the next 250 years, then Commander Andrews comes along and saves earth from the race of Zentech aliens who were currantly ruleing over earth. And thats where he got the name Crazy Commander Andrews.

Constructive criticism is always wellcome, same are ideas. :-D

TannerBondy, This is 6 maps, wound togeather with a storyline, bad guys, crazy A.I. computer, and a reputation.

COOL!

1. Sigh, Well only ever got to play Halo 1. I guess there is a small change in the storyline then. "The year is 3333, And Crazy commander blah blah blah---" Problem solved. :-D
I think the reason I first wanted it to be 257 years is because I was thinking of what 64*2*2+5-4 would be.
2. Well for this storyline I'm thinking there are only a few alien races in each galaxy. But the main reason is that it sounds cooler if you say "Known throughout the galexies." Or at least it sounds better then "Known throughout the multiple solar systems in one or mor galexies."
3. :-D
4. Well we know that ep3 is the end of the story arch. So we can assume that the combine either win or loss in ep3. And we know Gordon will live through it becuase there is a hint of a HL4 (Which I would call HL3) So we can assume Gordon lives. Now Godron liveing and Combine wining just dontt seem to fit togeather So I am asumeing Gordon gets rid of the combine or makes it so the rest of earth can finish the job. Either way it's not really a huge detail in the Zentech Storyline.
5. o, wait, there isn't a 5. heh heh.

Cool, I'm gonna add you right now.

Nicadeamas:

One or two inconsistencies to point out after clarification.

1: Halo: Combat Evolved takes place in 2552, and the latest Half Life 2 Episode 2 runs in the time-line is somewhere between 2019 and 2029, so the implication of 257 years after Half Life 2's ending is still off almost 300 years (266 years to be exact.. Hey Its the weekend and I have nothing else better to do :P ).

2: You are still saying galaxies. Not to sound harsh but you do know that there are thousands if not more solar systems in one *galaxy* (Which is the singular form of the word). I can't take that point any farther unless I can figure out the logic behind it.

3. Understood, that one was more of a joke anyway.

4. Refer to point 1 for my stance on the time-line, but I also have to one up on your plot point to say that there is no guarantee that Gordon Freeman does indeed take out the combine in the events of Half Life 2 or any of its episodes (Including Episode 3 which has yet to be released). Gordon does set them back a ton on Earth but the fight isn't over yet.

Hope you can clear these up for me, but I'm also offering my help if you want/need it for development or story or whatever. I'm fairly good at fabricating Sci-Fi stories and I have a bit of experience in modeling and concept drawings, plus I can do voice-over work if necessary. Let me know if your interested my email is: Falleen9@Gmail.com but also post the responses to my questions here if possible to clarify for the good people of ModDB what this mod is about.

So basically this is just a map?

I'm sorry I can't follow the storyline. I overlooked the grammar which isn't really that big of a deal but the plot as described in the description is disjointed and difficult to grasp. So I have a few questions to help clear things up if you don't mind.

1. Halo? Like THE halo? Like Master Chief Halo? Is this some kind of strange crossover?
2. You use the word galaxies multiple times in the description, which tends to point to intergalactic travel not just interstellar inside our galaxy?
3. His whole name is "Crazy Commander Andrews" Or is "Crazy Commander" more of a title? I'm sure his mom doesn't call him "Crazy Commander Andrews" right?
4. He saved the world, in space? More than one? Earth? Our Solar System "Sol"?

Keep in mind this is just some constructive criticism from someone who is completely lost after reading the description twice and still has no idea what your mod is truly about other than coding without knowing scripting is hard and you will somehow become the best source I/O programmer for completing your AI system.

Just my two cents.

I think you missed the point.

As far as I can tell, it's supposed to make no sense.

Your post was deleted, because it certainly wasn't... 'kind' there's no room here for rude people, and the spelling mistakes, my friend, is foreign, i believe, and he sent me that info, and i copy/pasted it for him here.

More info on the mod will come soon, patience please.
The mod should be released soon, i'' have to check soon, but expect it soon. Ps, i'm not the mod leader, Nicadeamas is, so ask him any questions you might have, i'm just hosting the mod for him.

Erm, so my post was deleted because it wasn't? Right... now it's very clear... And actually, I wasn't rude in making my point, unless the new definition of 'rude' is pointing out mistakes.

Sorry, I threw away my life in Grammer for a life of Hammer. ;-}
I'll get all that spelling and grammer worked out ASAP.

For the first half of the mod the player will be solveing a few puzzles, and navigateing his way around. He will also be driveing things and playing on a fake computer.

For the 2nd half of the mod the player will be invadeing the bad guys base and killing anyone in his way on his way to the roof.
