Nice work! I'm impressed that there was no discernible lag. The map looks much nicer now.

Here are the things I found while playing:
-Beacon keys are fiddly. Why not use left click for select and right click for move/gather?
-Why not have right click with the crowbar build a barricade?
-I was unable to pick up items when I had odd amounts of things, like 13 fuel or 34 rations. Why not allow players to pick up 'part' of an object ie if I have 13 fuel and find a red barrel, let me get 7 from it but leave the barrel behind with 7 less fuel left.
-The same goes for ammo.
-When I died and picked up a shotgun, it would go invisible. Switching weapons and back would fix this.
-I found one standard HL2 half-zombie with a headcrab, possibly the result of a grenade throw.
-Pistol ammo would be collected automatically when I approached.
-It would be very useful to see how much medicine and munitions remain at camp.
-It is possible to order a survivor to gather medicine from one of the containers with your initial scrap and medicine dump. When he drops it off, it goes to your inventory.
-Being able to drop off munitions and medicine from anywhere on the map seemed odd.
-If you pick up a grenade with the crowbar out, the grenade will be auto-switched to, causing it to be immediately thrown.
-I could not pick up the .357 pistol, or the soldiers' assault rifle. The soldiers' AR also did not behave like a proper physics object (not movable by shooting it or grenades, seemed to hover above the floor.)
-The shotgun has no blood effects.
-Both the smg and pistol both have visible crossbow bolts, both while firing and also left behind stuck in terrain.
-I once ate rations then picked up a medkit, resulting in having 101 hp.
-There was no 'final wave' when closing the doors.

It seems the game crashes when the menu starts loading for me.

It just stops. No errors.

well, it just got to alpha so it is expected to be full of bugs. i just wish i could get it to work i down loaded it extracted it, and it even shows up on steam but i can't seem to launch it. Still the mod looks great, when i first saw this a while back i couldn't wait to get to play this and i was hoping it wouldn't die like so many great mods or take like 10 years to come out like black mesa did. congrats on making it to alpha i hope to see this mod grow and maybe one day play it....

This works, but for some reason even with a pretty good PC, I'm having Framerate issues with this. This is in fact, the only game up to date where I had framerate issues O_O
