And before we close this news, we would like to thank you. We are in TOP 100 and we appreciate your support very much! We hope people won’t stop up voting us, as we are getting closer and closer to our goal.
As a small reward, we will to share some more tidbits about how we progress on the multi-player.
The first map, op4_rubble had reached the beta stage and is completely playable. Thanks to this, we can perform all the basic gameplay testing on the weapons and other basic mechanics of the multi-player build. And more maps is in progress to be ready for the initial release. So in terms of progress, everything seems to be in order.

We have plenty of updates in the pipeline, so stay tuned for them. We will show you some more media and teaser trailer from the single-player campaign as soon as we get it ready (it won’t take long). It seems like it’s also about time to start introducing you the multi-player a little bit, so we plan some media from MP build as well, so we are seriously considering a gameplay trailer from it. We should start working on it as soon as more maps get into the beta stage.

PC Gamer also just released a short news about the projects, make sure you check it out as well, as there are some exclusive pictures ;).

That’s all for now, thank you for your support! In the meantime, this is where I get off.

I'm a beginning 3D modeler. Any use for me? I'm can't say I'm the greatest by any means, but if you give me a trial test, you can see what I'm capable of.

If you can supply UV Maps and Textures, I can supply prop models :)

If you're interested I can PM you loads of examples of my work.

Well, it's somehow major drawback if you can't supply UV maps and textures, but you can still PM me. If your work is worth it, we may consider you.

I would love to get into working on mutliplayer, sadly I am so loaded with work these days it would be nearly impossible. I'll keep tabs on this, though. If you guys still need a mapper for multiplayer when things quiet down, maybe I'll join in.

Hey guys!

I mostly do mapping, but looking at the AMAZING work you guys are doing I would probably be a let down. Honestly, the quality of the 2014 stuff is absolutely mind-blowing. Keep up the amazing work and take a minute to give yourselves a pat on the back, because the textures, models, map designs, everything takes Opposing Force and makes it look professional and absolutely playable. This takes Black Mesa to a whole new level.

Anyhow, I am not quite sure how this works, but a few years ago while taking a camp in modeling and UV mapping I made an extremely high-definition organic and cool-looking Gene-Worm in Blender. I ported it over to Source and had a few friends add some very cool looking HD textures to it. Anyhow, I was hoping I could help contribute to ANYTHING at all, just to keep this mod going and looking as fine as it does, and I was wondering if you guys wanted to have this old model, maybe as reference or if I can update the textures to look more organic use it? It has a similar feel to the content you've already released! I'm not sure whether or not the OBM Team has a Gene-Worm model already, but I really wish to contribute something for the sole purpose of repaying you guys for all this content. I am at a loss of words with explaining how nostalgic and pure amazing all these screenshots are.

Please PM me! I will do literally anything! Submit maps, models! Learn how to code and texture! Dance like a monkey! You guys have made my life so much more awesome and I really want to support you and give thanks!

Cheers! And keep up the excellent work!

I have reviewed your team's work and found my personal level design skills good enough. Please ignore the comment above, as I will be submitting my own work in with a screenshot. I currently have no work uploaded to Moddb, so I will attach it when I send in an application. Opposing Force is my ultimate favorite game, and considering how much I work with the Source and Goldsource engines, I feel my above comment of my work being a letdown is quite an understatement. I will first need to release some work of my own, then hopefully I can help map and level design for this game. If you guys are no longer in need of level designers, please PM me if you can. But I feel my skills at compiling and decompiling maps, moving them to the correct engine, reverse-engineering them then adding in more detail will be extremely useful for your team. In the meantime, I will work on finishing and posting up my own work and hopefully eventually sending in a resume with said completed work. You guys are amazingly talented at what you do, and it would be a proud honor to not only support you guys but be able to move my favorite video game to my favorite engine. I will send in a resume later, hopefully before you guys complete this masterpiece of brilliance and hard work. Again, keep up the excellent work!
