Boat-Less is an alternative take on Half-Life 2's story. The mod features a modified version of the original storyline, and includes brand new maps. The core of the experience is still, and will always be, going through the canals - without the airboat.
We know that the Water Hazard chapter is rather boring for many Half-Life 2 players because of the airboat. Now, the time has come - Freeman will go through the old canals, Boat-Less!
The last article we've posted was back in December of 2017. Quite a while! Now, we're happy to show you what we've been doing as the time passed. It wasn't always full-on productivity. We've had some motivation issues, downtime was a thing, one of our key devs had some extremely serious health issues, some folks left the team, other joined. Much of the work we've been doing was coding, or some small, yet important features. Basically, it wasn't worth a media update. Now, with lots of new content, we can show you all what took us so long, and hopefully it was worth the wait!
The Combine are bringing in the big guns. Used only in extreme situations, these guys mean business. Welding the infamous AR3 and Smoke Grenades, as well as a lot of armor, you can bet meeting the Heavies won't be a walk in the park.
The Smoke Grenades, known by the Combine as the Jet Extractors, are used by the Heavy to gain advantage over his targets. Avoid the smoke!
Make sure not to enter the smoke, as it can give your enemies a great advantage.
The Bullsquid lurks in the shallow waters of the canals, waiting for prey to come close. It loves to ambush whoever dares to come close enough, or whoever makes the mistake of not keeping track of the water around them.
We've decided to make fighting the Bullsquid more interesting by making it try to use melee attacks more often than long-distance spitting. We belive this fits the maps of Water Hazard more, and makes use of the water and junk/debris around the riverbeds of the canals.
While the Bullsquid is not done yet, we're quite happy with how it is so far. Expect more info about in future updates!
As you probably know by now, Boat-Less is far more than just a simple mappack. This time, we've decided to show you some more of our brand new maps. with old versions for comparison. Have a look!
These are either in WIP or nearly done phases.
More progress on these maps wil be shown in the next update, which will come in the near future.
That's it for now folks! Expect more frequent updates from us in the near future. Boat-Less is back on track! Thanks for sticking with us. This mod is far from dead, and it will only get better from now on.
Expect more content soon.
