This would be an excellent time to release your game, since many of us at home.
You could at least drop a comment here!
What's going on?
There are games called descent 1, 2, and 3.
All 3 games are about controlling such a vehicle.
They are old though. First two are designed to run under DOS.
Oh, there is a newer one called 'Overload' from the same developers.
If you mean the part where you have to stand on a plank to get the other side then no that's still there.
My point was that if you play only the new version then you miss a lot of content the first beta has.
I thought new players should know that, that's all.
If this is the same as the 2013 release then all of you should know that although there are new locations but there are also a lot of maps missing compared to "beta"!
So you should see this not a refined beta but a different beta altogether!
You have said you are ready and only doing some small cosmetic stuff.
I didn't know that you still need to do so much.
In any case you don't need to stress over anything.
You can't fail, already proved that with beta and with the old v2 part1.
and please don't think I'm hostile toward you because I'm not.
I wish you great success!
Ok, but I was hoping something new from you, beacuse you are saying exactly the same thing as you did ~2 months ago.
Well, I guess we see it when we see it...
Could you post something what's going on?
If it helps you get more sales then sure, use G STRAND, nothing wrong with that! It's the content whats important, not the name!
You can also come up with longer name, so you can keep G String and add something like
G STRING STRIDE
G STRING (IN)FINITE
G STRING INEVITABLE
G STRING STRAIN
Maybe it's stupid I don't know.
Yes, they totally behave like that when the game is free but when money is involved for them they are much faster.
Five work days passed. By now everything should be in motion and you must know the release date and the price as well.
Care to share these with us?
What is that violet-colored rectangle close to the upper-left of the screen?
Doesn't look like it belong there.
Anyway, it's a nice pic.
Is there any chance this comes out this year?
Is it still free?
-If yes, do we have to wait for steam release or will it be available here?
-If no, how much does it going to cost?
I don't know about that but when I see someting broken I start to reach for my phone to make a picture of it thinking "someone should fix that!"
Too much INFRA.
This is something similar I'm sure of it.
Shipwrecks could be fun in the perspective of story.
You could make it possible to dock to some intact sections for exploration or maybe fly around in space suit for the more destroyed parts.
Also space battles could not only happen in open space but inside large structures be intact or wrecked with some limited possibility to inflict further structural damage here and there which could lead to open ways to continue or find secret areas.
Whatever you do please don't add a general timer anywhere. I hate when I have to play against time. Though depending of the story small sections with some urgency is fine, for example you need to reach space-suit/bulk-door/control panel and there are hull breaches happening all around you as you run.
You could also make it posible to take limited control of other vehicles/structures/wrecks to make something happen like set some large wreck into collision course into some big obstacle or take control of a large weapon to clear some big threat.
and some stations/wrecks could be home of some new enemy types specific to these locations. Like some bioweapon got loose like bug like creatures. Though that could mean a lot of additional work.
or maybe enough some leftover security system which you need to be cleverly find around a way or deactivate it somehow.
This could be done while you are in the ship, outside/inside in your space suit.
Could be some battles inside atmosphere of a planet or even close to the surface with ground targets and threats but the source engine is probably not up to that task.
I don't hope it'll be good because I know it'll be good.
The only question is am I going to be alive when you release it?
How about fixing the sounds of the weapons?
The shotgun, smg, rocket launcher (not the rocket itself).
When an enemy or ally fire these weapons they sound like they are right next to you even though they could be really far away.
This is not just awfully loud and annoying but sometimes makes it difficult to locate where an enemy is.
If I remember correctly you once said to me that this you already fixed a long time ago.
So an update for the "beta" would be awesome!
I don't understand why you switched to ue4.
Even the most basic things are broken. Like walking, physics.
I also feel it looks worse then act 1. (or better say not as good).
Performance is also below source. (the big empty(!) building near the end.)
The game has many dark areas and the flashlight has very limited time to use. Super annoying.
Ok, ok it's alpha. But as far as I can see you only manage to make much more work for yourself because you have to make everything what was already working in source and you are a long way from achieving that.
Anyway, good luck!
That is perfectly understandable.
However, you should stop saying "mod done" or "100% ready" and the like when it's clearly not done.
I remember you said same thing more then 2 years ago.
Best thing you can do is not saying anything again about the release date at all. Ever.
Just release it when you are done.
Best of luck!
Obergun50chickens wrote these, he also said "100% ready" like 2 years ago which I can't find anymore; I'm not sure what to think:
Obergun50chickens Jul 23 2015
Mod Done! I work with Streamwork interface
Obergun50chickens Dec 24 2014
Obergun50chickens Aug 28 2014
everything is fine I've got access to a page
release will be a little later
I don't think your mod got repetitive at all. I really liked the beta and that other beta too.
I hope you are not going to cut too much.
They are all nice.
Idiotic design there. When the dialog ends (which we have already see once) you have to kill him through the glass.
That was the only place where I died in the entire mod.
Completed it. As expected it is as bad as all your other mods. but it's ok, I'm not disappointed.
Thank you for your work!
This mod'll be the pinnacle of the source engine!
After bypassing the need of hl2 I played this. Definitely not needed, there was no missing models/textures at all, also no crashes.
I have to say this is not a bad mod at all.
I have read many comments how bad the mapping is but I think it's on the contrary. It's really the strong part of the mod. The only thing needs something more obvious is the power switches though I have noticed them almost instantly.
So many complaints: "I don't know where to go, what to do..."
What the **** do you want? I giant yellow arrow pointing where to go all the time? Get out of here go play a console that's what was made for you...
The fights are also very satisfying as well the sounds. Ammo, health, energy placements just perfect. Maybe make an easy mod for casual players.
Yep, the models like scientists and gurads and some enemy could be better.
The last map also needs some serious optimization.
As for not all weapons are unlocked is most likely because it's not a complete mod.
The hud is ok. I had no problem with crosshair, health, energy display.
Iron sight is optional. Keep it that way.
I like this, nice one!
Yes, it's ridiculous considering Black Mesa itself (mod version) doesn't need it.
It's also unclear why is this a steam release at all? Reading the ratings it's short and a failure in many ways.
Definitely should be a simple mod right here!
Can't you set it to accept hl2 episode 1 too then?
There is like "Estranged: Act I" which also free and it doesn't need hl2.
There are also shitload of hl2 mods require nothing but "Source SDK Base 2013" or "Source SDK Base 2007".
So, no valve doesn't require owning hl2.
Well, it says I need to own half-life 2. Why is it needed for a stand-alone mod?
I own these source engine games:
hl2 episode 1
left 4 dead 2
but no hl2
Are you going to unlock this mod, because no way I'm going to buy that ****** hl2 now. As it stands this mod is not really free isn't it!
Yep, can't install. Nothing happens when I click install.
Piece of **** steam...
