Report article RSS Feed Lost Under The Snow is released!

It's here! After almost three years of (kind of slow) work, "Lost Under The Snow" is released.

Posted by Smuz-juhl on Aug 12th, 2012

You are a captured citizen who wakes up in a pod, stranded in unknown snowy surroundings, just after you were lost from a "combine-dropship-pod-container". You discover a secret underground facility that are infested by headcrab-zombies. Later you find out that your'e not alone in the facility: A mad group of dangerous humans with weapons are inhabiting the facility too.

Frozen assault. Control Room [WIP]

After almost three years of (kind of slow) work, "Lost Under The Snow" is released. I really like the results I came up with, though it was going slow at some points. So i hope you all will enjoy my mod! Thanks to the people who came with good and nice support about my work. Thanks!


Have Fun! :D

im kind of stuck here: Steamcommunity.com

i cant go back since the door wont let me (it activates itself btw?)
i cant go to the bathroom, on ly a blank door inside. i cant go forward since i cant fit through the rubble.

about the intro: it seems nice, but the dropship should go near the surface, cause if its flying high in the clouds, you gonna defenetly die when you hit the surface.

I'm stuck at Tull (I think that's the name), that desert city. Screen shows "AI Disabled.." and then game crashes while exploring the city!

Despite the bug, the mod has been really good so far, a few adjustments that I would make;

- More of a combat stance to the green jacket dudes
- Those written things on the walls make very clear that one person wrote that, the modder. I believe these things could use more profound texts and stuff.

Mapping is very good, many things to explore around so far.

Congrats!

Same problem, Typed tull01 in the console. I'm still crashing after I pick up the second key though.
Love the mod so far, first real bug I've run into.
Great work, good job !

i read that you need to have HL2, HL2 ep1 and HL2 ep2 installed to be able to play this mod. a real shame!
i do have all 3 but i only have ep2 installed, and to install both others just to play this mod is a bit much for me.
why did you choose to do it this way because now you will have other gamers that will not or are not able to play this mod, because they don't have them all 3 installed like i do, or simply don't own all 3.
when it is because you use assets that are in all 3 then it maybe would have been better to take them and add them in to the mod, so you only need ep2 to play this one.

a real shame,
sorry,

Hey pretty nice job with the mod, a lot longer than what I was anticipating.
Anyway, I'm currently at the part where you come out of the building and fight some combine on the roofs, and after that you need to get the car started (I think), I've attached the two (do i need more?) components for the turbo to the car, and now I try to flip the switch on the wall but nothing happens, do I need to turn electricity on somehow?
Hope you read these :).

So far so good. I am stuck at a ramp with a lift with a cog missing. Can't find the cog yet. Also some textures arent showing. Check out the links for screenshots:

Cog puzzle I am talking about:
Imageplay.net

Here is where a generator is. see next pic for what was there:
Imageplay.net

Here is what is supposed to be there.shows back up when I back up:
Imageplay.net

this is a wall 1 or 2 rooms prior to the missing cog puzzle. just before you break the windows and jump through:
Imageplay.net

Door completely missing and wierd texture showing:
Imageplay.net

Same doorway just closer up. It is the same for both doors. I can move close enough and the door texture disappears and I can see the radioactive green stuff (missing cog puzzle)

Pretty good mod. My only concern was near the end when I got to the surface, the Overwatch troops open fire from the roof of the buildings and when I defeat them, the gate opens but I am unable to move forward. I had to use "noclip" to proceed. Anyone else have this problem.

Besides that, there were few problems. The game only crashed when I went into a certain area in Tull, but at least I was able to keep my flashlight (a previous playthrough removed my flashlight when I got to Tull and I was unable to get it back).

And finally, the colors and lighting in some parts were god-awful. Sorry, but it's a real problem when you go through most of the mod looking normal and then the colors suddenly become muddy and dark (particularly in the area where you have to wait for the elevator and fight off a bunch of zombies).

But despite these, I still had fun. Any mod that has you wandering around an abandoned facility is a good mod. I liked that the weapon models were different (except that painfully slow shotgun)and the puzzles were interesting too.

I hope to see more from you.

I can't get this game to launch ..it craps out after the valve-faucet-in the head (which I can't see. I only get a big white block and the audio.
The game then returns to STEAM with a "cannot load library client"

I've tried the usual mod fixes with no success.
Any suggestions ?
