Any news on the mod?

Once this mod is finished, I hope that there'll be an addon section in which if somebody does is there'll be a skin that makes the Big Houndeye use the Big Houndeye skin from Black Mesa, also this is a repost.

Мод выйдет на мобильный ксаш? Я видел скрин, где показывали тени, освещение, разрушение. Это будет присутствовать в моде?

This mod could be ported on Xash3D yes, but not from our team. About screenshots with shadows, breakable walls and etc, yes we planning to add them in game, with improved light system.

As much as I love to see a mod based on Hostile Takeover, which I would kill to see a screenshot let alone play it, there is simply isn't enough information about it to make a faithful recreation. 95% of the HL fans aren't even aware of it, it is that obscure. I wish everyone on the team good luck however, hope to see a solid mod.

Well 'cause of that we're on the writing stage, in some questions Tyler McVicker helps us, I mean if it needed.. And we welcome for all your ideas to make the game better or worse than the original.

Here's the thing, no one knows anything about Hostile Takeover besides some weapon / enemy names and squad based gameplay that involved TF characters, along with some other very minor info.

Getting Tyler means nothing because he doesn't know more about the project than the rest of us. Neither me nor Tyler or anyone else that isn't involved with the development process can help. We can, definitely make up a story, but it would just be a guess of what could have been, not THE story of the cancelled expansion of course.

That sounded harsh but I don't have anything but sympathy for this mod. It is too early to say but I sincerely hope this project grows into one of the classic mods for HL. Best of luck to the team.

Yeah you're right, thanks you for support. We'll do our best.

I guess it's best you take the concept and make your own spin on it. Write your own story for it. I'm looking forward for this!
