Environmental Artist/Level Designer. Current work includes The Crew & Haven. Previous work includes Forza Horizon, Black Snow, Canvas & Field Zone.
Just to clarify, we had no involvement in the Co-Op mod for this. So story line wise, it isn't 'Canon' to our fiction.
We just gave them the OK to make it because y'know why not?
But stay tuned for new things on the radar because our commercial project is set in the same universe!
EDIT: Whoops, I wasn't signed in when I posted that comment! Apologies
Oh no! We will forever be trapped in the genre of "No weapons & Flashlights"! Pigeon-holed for all eternity! Darn those games that have both of those things! It must mean they are superior somehow according to you!!
Not one of the devs, nor any of our playtesters got this bug, so nothing much we can do to anticipate it. We've tried several fixes/patches to remedy the issue, but it seems there isn't any work around. There was no error made during the map making process.
The mod has nothing to do with/is not inspired by Slenderman.
Well good for you sharing that with the whole of the internet.
1. You're never going to be able to play Black Snow or ANY HL2 EP2 related mod until you buy a legit copy of EP2 on steam and install it.
2. Why in the world don't you use Steam? You have no idea how much you're missing out on.
3. Steam sales.
So your loss dude.
Are you serious? You've like never in the history of gaming been able to install PC steam mods on your console. The only game that tried that and failed was Unreal Tournament 3.
You need a PC with Steam & EP2 installed, full stop.
Sir 'Guest' or anyone else for that matter. I'm sure I speak for Kremator when I say you don't really need our permission to play the mod on your youtube channels. We are flattered that you want to do let's plays of Black Snow in the first place, so go nuts! :)
To be fair, we had other smaller youtubers contact us about doing playthroughs and in terms of popularity it's been pretty decent before Pewdiepie uploaded his video today.
And yes we appreciate his support (though he did not contact us), regardless of people's personal stance on the guy.
All credit goes to Tay (Kremator) our project lead & the team that helped for making a decent enough mod to gain this kind of exposure.
There is a concrete block on the floor in the middle of the gym room that has an ignition key in it. The hammer and chisel breaks it free. Head back to the reception area where you have to move the crate away from the door and there will be a new section to explore.
you need to find a way into the gym :)
The suspense, it is TANGIBLE.
I usually try to avoid posting negative crits, but this mod looks like a nightmarish Black Mesa WIP, it all looks just....wrong.
THAT is the surprise
Why haven't you guys made a news post concerning the engine switch?
It seems like pretty big, important news to me...
sounds good to me :)
Thank Mr. Chop for that beauty, can't wait to see some 3D skybox detailing in there Banter, awesome work, and my textures worked nicely :D
I'm sorry if this image looks funny colour-wise. Compression just seems to kill it..A shame
If you wait about a minute, it corrects itself...how odd
I'm about to fix those now hah, so I will update in about ten minutes, I'm not sure why the texture looks stretched :/
Entirely off subject, but I'm a massive hardcore punk fan lol, you got a link to your band? :D
Ok thanks guys, crits are noted down heh :P
I'll end up making a new ceiling texture and a more worn down wood texture to fit the walls, any detailing hasn't occurred yet, so it does look bare..I'll change the dustmotes like you suggested!
And hey MasterDonut! Hope Raindrop is going well :)
Bad-*** update Banter, I nearly crapped myself at the amount of views/trackers we have for today 0.o, awesome.
how so? It's from inside an apartment that has had no maintenance or upkeep for a long time, wallpapers would start to peel and rip and it would be pretty dusty IMO. The area is far from finished but it's just a demonstration of the mood at the moment!
Cheers joe, I will certainly add some rooftop objects to break it up
And shirk, care to demonstrate your grass?
Oh god haha, I can only really take that as a compliment :)
You need to change my title to music/sound designer too now :D
And Schofty needs to be allocated the mapper title wooooo
You've put my music up then Banter :P
Hope everyone likes!
random comment is random :P
Tundra, why are you not the on lopers much?
It's best to talk to Banter about working on this, I don't really have full 100% control in who we recruit (as I'm not project lead), I can only suggest people to him who I think would be a helpful and productive member...Some of the stuff for Warhound you did looked nice...though I doubt you will be able to bastardize any of that content into Field Zone, as I think we have the locations document drafted. Just swing him a PM, see what he says :)
what happened to Warhound dude?
Yeah, the influence is Russian style architecture, looking at apartment blocks, but also adding my own flair to make it more interesting. And don't worry, the displacements will be worked on!
