This mod I made by thinking: "Hey, there are many HL2 beta recreation mods but they`re dead or discontinued for a long time!" Then I thought "Why don`t I make them!" so here is the thing.

I do not want to hear any "missing information and dark interval is better" stuff because developer is only one person.
I do take any level design suggestions.

Hyper

News



I`m now basing this mod from hyper era from Marc Laidlaw`s email. Now Vertigo,Kraken base and one of the streetwar map finished. The Citadel is still heavy work-in-progress. The hyperborea now nearly finished. I`m remaking Get your free tvs map from old City_test map and there`s many scripted sequences.

This story goes hyper -> Kraken -> wcontrol -> vert -> streetwar -> Citadel

As there are no wcontrol maps, i will replace it with airex as it is one of the most favoured chapter in the beta.

You should make airex be snow themed so it's similar to wcontrol

I think you mean like what joshz did.
Well, i tried but there weren`t many textures that would be useful
And making it white made the leak`s polluted atmosphere completely wierd.

You should make simple white textures with maybe some grey lines to make it look more like snow or just take episode 2's borealis snow and use it and use the sky_spire01 because spire was weather control. Too bad spire didn't get leaked. Or you could try making your own wcontrol.

yeah because we totally need another beta mod especially when the actual beta has been restored and redone to death and is the most complete it has and probably will ever be.

adding on to this there are currently three other mods aiming to restore the beta in development that i can think of, those being raising the bar: redux, dark interval, and missing information (they're working on getting a release on steam) and all of those ones look far superior than this. also if you count the ones that have ceased development there's probably like a million beta mods. we really don't need any more of these.

Dark Interval is a snoozefest that manages to be more boring and less polished than Retail, and it takes talent to screw up that badly

That is your opinion. Maybe they have the most noticeable progress of many beta mods but there are several other good ones.
Every creation contains something which other versions do not have

saying "that's your opinion" is not a valid argument in a discussion
