Hello everyone! Sorry for the long silence this past month, we have been extremely busy behind the scenes. You all know the holidays, finals and exams, sports competitions, work, school, all that jazz. But, we have been making tremendous progress on the mod, so today we'll be showing you some of the touch-ups and improvements we've made on past versions of maps, and we'll even give you never-before-seen pics of fully-textured maps that, after a bit more work, will be fully finalized and included into the Half-Life 2: Retaliation singleplayer campaign. And last but not least, we want
YOU guys to show your support for the mod, and nominate us for the
Hopefully we'll get into the category of "Best Upcoming Mod" but who knows what else could happen. But anyway, lets get down to business!
Well, we've basically hired 4 new level designers since the last news post, and progress is hard and fast. We have level designers working on and improving on Chapters 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the singleplayer campaign. Yes, we are making great headway, and so, we present to you some screenshots of newly-textured campaign maps from Chapters 2 and 3, as well as a few pics of some improved and re-visioned maps, complete with new props, details, textures, and other touch-ups.
Please note that we aren't completely finished with any of these maps. Nothing is perfect, and everything can be improved. Don't judged the above images as the final product of these maps.
