Well, I guess some frustration would definitely be unavoidable with a project this big. But don't let it swallow you near the final stretch, that would be a shame.

You have workied on this project for so long so I guess you know better than any of us what to do. Whatever happens, I'm sure it'll easily be one of the best Half-Life mods ever made, as proven by this screenshot.

As usual, there's no sweat, and I'm sure all the time and effort will eventually pay off! :)

TokyoTwice is looking wonderfully decadent (I mean that in a good way toward's G-String's badassery, I really do...! <3 ) as always, please keep it up since the wait is irrelevant as I prefer quality over quantity ANYDAY. Best of luck my friend, I know you need all you can get. ^-^

The beta version of G-string (2011) is easily in my top 3, and I've played over 100 Source mods

Thanks for the kind words guys.
Back to mapping and if anyone has suggestions that fit this weird world building I am open. At this point in this future even though the earth is in terrible shape many people have spread throughout the solar system. Unlike in Blade Runner where it is just sort of hinted at, I want to show more directly this whole "off world " situation.

I know full well that the Earth in G-String's timeline is VERY much beyond salvaging at that point, as the beginning introduction reveals as such, and thus I was unsurprised when Myo apparently just "reset" the world at the end of the original G-String, since, again, it was already beyond saving at that point in time of course... ^^;

I think you should stick to G-String's flowchart so to speak, of which I have no doubt you've improved millions of times over by now, just know that the so-called "Beta" will forever be in the fans hearts, especially mine... <3 Youtube.com

What I find interesting is that you could tell a story like the old star wars trilogy only set in the Solar system. you do not need a whole Galaxy.
Count the planets in the Old Trilogy. Tatooine, Dagobah, Hoth, Yavin 4, Endor and Bespin.
So Tatooine = Mars
Bespin = Venus
Endor = Europa of Jupiter
Dagobah = Io of Jupiter
Yavin 4 = Saturn
Hoth = Pluto
Earth = Adleraan... cause it was trashed.

At least George Lucas would agree that Pluto still counts as a planet

As one of the testers i can say with confident that you are building that odd future world so well. The atmosphere in your levels is so thick that i could taste it. And the progression through the levels is so well made that you really feel that you are living a story of a damaged earth. It is a very lonely existence when you are working day in day out on maps. You start to live, eat and sleep your mod world. Just hang in there, end is in sight. Just a little bit more and then finally you can show your mod world to the players.
Have a nice Christmas and New Year !

This is shaping into an awesome universe that deserves to be as popular as HL's original one.

It's that time of the year again. Hope you can put G String in the top 100 at least. Good enough for me. Keeps me motivated.

Yes, it's not done this year but I am extremely close. I really am as some of the testers did mention in the comments this thing is already pretty complete. But not done yet.

Not a Jedi jet.

And so far I have not cut anything important. I will try the impossible, to include all the decent ideas in one go even if this does push everything back over and over again. But I am getting closer to the end. There is an end, a structure. I am not just randomly adding cool things.

Believe me I want to deliver just as bad as you want to play it. I am not happy with my life also, it seems to stagnate for years as I am spending tons of time on this project.

Stay on target.

I do not want to give dates or anything like that. Know that tons of work is being done everyday. I do think the daily progress is good. Pumping out a map every two weeks is very efficient on Source I would hope.

Problem is this thing is so massive even with this progress it takes very long but when it will ship I hope everyone will understand why it took so long.

Donations welcome as always, link on my YouTube page. Thank you everyone who contributed already. Much appreciated!
