Greetings! Yup, we were silent about 9 months and we have decided at last to show the public what we were working on so hard. Of course, we've had some rearrangements during this period of time. Some people left, some entered the team. Ah, okay, I'm finished with sad. Now about some curious

Greetings!
Yup, we were silent about 9 months and we have decided at last to show the public what we were working on so hard. Of course, we've had some rearrangements during this period of time. Some people left, some entered the team. Ah, okay, I'm finished with sad.
Now about some curious things. You know, we did not want to give any new media, but there was some funny case. Once I received an e-mail with an offer to give an interview to a Czech site hl2.vokr.com, then had a quick chat with LEXX and we both thought: "Whatever!" You know, answering those questions was rather a nice experience. Here's the link to an English version of the conversation - try it, there are really interesting details about our upcoming mod, some information about the release date, visual and Ai features.
Sure thing, what media release without any screenshots? Here they are:

ba_maint HECU Soldier
ba_maint ba_tram

After we received some angry responses about those desert-camouflage, we've decided to alter them. From now on they are going to look accurately like HECU soldiers in the original. As you can see, we have one screenshots from the beginning chapter and two ones from ba_maint.
Hope you liked that. Waiting for you impressions about the shots and the interview in our mod profile.
Good luck and stay tuned!

That's really a fantastic job...

Your textures and the map design looks awesome!
Keep up the great work.

To the angry responses of some fans from you.
I suggest to release both variants of those soldiers.

The players can select then if they want to play with hecu soldiers or not, easy by putting the models in manual or via install setup.exe when it's done somtime.

So the great work of your modders and texture artists were not for nothing. That means the soldiers could still be used.

all in one nice interview
nice renders
nice map screenshots

i hope to play your blue shift mod someday and hope that u don't end up like operation blackmesa (a op4 source portation mod which failed due to team differences)

greetings 23-down :)

Really good models and maps, I just don't think BS was good enough for a remake. Regardless, I'll still play it. It's shorter then HL1, so it should be easier to make.

Wouldn't it be great if they merged with Black Mesa and made the most disgustingly awesome mod ever? :)

@ kaiserpanda: Hai there! :D

Very good stuff, it'd be good to have a standard into map with the tramway, that way for both mods it's the same location :p
