Report article RSS Feed NMRiH Monthly Update - March 24th, 2010

Oh boy it feels good to be back and writing an update again! Quite a bit has happened since our last update, some good and some bad. Rest assured the good definitely outweighs the bad. We also have an audio update as well as the CCCP winners.

Posted by Dman757 on Mar 25th, 2010

THE GOOD

Good news is always best right? So to start things off let me introduce our new additions to the team. First off is a level designer by the name of _RC he has already begun working on his map titled nmrih_hospital. Next up is an Animator named Blindside who has joined up to help us get rid of those boring and bland HL:2 animations. Give both of our new team members a warm welcome! Now onto news about our current team members. SSBA has implemented a few features as well as fixing up some bugs. Here are some of the more noteworthy features: Bash damage(only on pistols at the moment), Being able to pick up physics objects with the +USE key, weapon damage and functionality work has been revamped. (still pending testing) Maxx has begun working on a bolt action rifle with a long range scope attachment as well as finishing up a in game model for the walkietalkie. (sorry no image at the moment) DaveOfDefeat has been working various event sounds for picking up/droping various objects be it guns, ammo, objective items, etc. Nay0r has been polishing up his map. (new images below)

THE BAD

Crazymatt has had to go on an indefinite hiatus due to monetary troubles. He is currently looking for a job and a home we wish you the best of luck dude we are rooting for you! Cleric, while playing ultimate frisbee was hit in the face by a rogue frisbee that shattered his tooth, causing a temporary speech impediment. Thus his vocal talents are on hold at the moment.

THE UPDATE

Approximately 17 minutes in length.
Voice talents of Maxx and Dman757

Jobs

We are constantly looking for new blood to join the team though specifically we are looking for a Sound Artist at the moment. So if you have experience we would love to have you on the team.

Requirements for Audio Team Position:

  • Skilled (and preferably proficient) with writing out soundscape and other sound file scripts for custom made sounds, as well as weapon sounds/soundscripts.
  • Able to produce or attain, then edit, various weapon sounds. We need alot of melee sounds at the moment, mainly swooshes, swinging of melee weapons, and punches. But we are always open to additional content.
  • Knowledgeable in terms of editing sound files for tasks such as noise reduction, quality control, proper source engine volume levels, and general audio editing/post processing.
  • Knowledge of sample/bit rates, frequencies, and file formats that are used in/most useful in the source engine.

    Preferred

  • Access to a LEGALLY usable library of sound recordings, whether it be your own personal  library of recordings, or recordings attained through other LEGAL means.
  • Anything else you have under your belt, include it in your application under "Other Experience"
  • It also wouldn't hurt to include previews of some of your own audio work, whether it be via video or other format.

Once again another great update! The addition of the new animator to the team is particularly thrilling, since those old hl2 zombie animations were horribly out of place.

Wait... Aren't Frisbees made of plastic? And in order to break your teeth over them, you'd either:

A) Fall face first into a Frisbee that you yourself is holding.

B) Someone else tossed a Frisbee at super high speeds less than 1 meter away from you, slipped out of their hands, and whipped you in the face?

C) Option B but your hand slipped while holding the frisbee and it backlashed into your face.

D) An invisible frisbee ninja launched a sneak attack aiming to steal your teeth to thwart the team's effort......

Im sorry but it must be said
This mod has been in what, development for 5 years? 6? And the gameplay and images look like crap. Usualy mods dont take this long to make, and it doesn't look like it will be a very good one ither. And seeing how it is still being developed, it doesent look like it will be releced any time soon, what is it, another 5 years till the first trailer? Sad.

Mods do take that long to make, if you get members, lose members, plan for months, code for months, go braindead for months.... etc. etc. etc.

Maxx.. one year ago does not make it 2003... and that is just going back to a old news post announcing a new site. You guys where already in development at that point..

Not attacking you. Just don't like it when people attempt to exaggerate something to make themselves look better.

I didn't exaggerate anything. This is not the NMRIH from 2003, or 2005, or 2007. When I took over the mod in January 2009, we scrapped EVERYTHING and started fresh. This NMRIH is only just over a year old.

This looks like the kind of update that I would expect after maybe the first month of development.

Yep....this mod is never going to be released. Ever since Pongles left, the mod took a major nose-dive.
