Features

Npc, Ammo, values changed, Arena's, Documents, Tapes, Console Recordings, New Zombie Types, an interesting story, characters to be understood, cliffhangers, texture changes, and, among, other things...

Goals

The Goal of Stratigrad, is/was to incoparate Arena Style gameplay into something like HL2. Several things were/have been changed to meet that goal, and whilst it isn't perfect, it almost certainly poses several interesting discussions to be had!

The other goal, was to introduce natural characters with several goals of their own, emotions, feelings, and etc. The characters have been avoided to being "dramatic" unless that was somewhat their personality.

Big Brother - A socially awkward loner, who doesn't know how to communicate well, but is trying to help you, to redeem himself.

Tennant - An maniacal bastard who doesn't care about anyone or thing.

Document Characters - Made so that the world of stratigrad could be so more.

And of course, other pre-existing characters like the Vortigaunts and Combine will have an input!

What other mods? You mean other versions? Other mods on MODDB? Mapbase? I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this.

i cant play the map d1_stratigrad_04a,there are a lot of zombies and the gates don't open for a long time. Maybe I'm stupid?

No, you're fine. The gates should open after around 4 minutes or so. The arena's are tied to the music length. Honestly, looking back, the execution was lazy. Next time, the arena's will change up things. (I.E. Staying in one place for around 1:30 mins, and moving to another place to fight for an extra 1 minute.) Did you hear music? If you hear some sort of combat music, then get ready is all i can say!

Progress is Steady! Thank you for asking! At least 21 levels, and 5 Chapters! (I have 2 more levels to do before it's done, after that polish and, more... polish. lol.) I appreciate the compliment!

Do not worry, i am never giving up.

Yo! I did a complete playthrough of this mod! Here's the video, feel free to use the footage for whatever!

Hello! Thank you for playing my demo!

I have watched some brief clips, and i do wan't to re-assure certain things:

The Radio Guy (Big Brother) has had his voice lines re-done.

I feel like you had over-analysed certain mundane, and minute details that shouldn't concern players. You also booted up dev levels...

I have re-duxed the first chapter, and added little tweaks; here and there. Arena's definitely utilize more platforming, and new zombie types. Zombies will spawn certain distances away from the player, and have had their rotational spawn directions changed. This way, they will immediately attack.

About your loading screen comments. Yes. This was a HUGE problem! I had a lot of tedious work be done on these so that i could just make them load at-least. I will say, that some of the bugs definitely flew over my head. This will be one of my top priorities for this weekend, when i shall edit certain levels.

About the zombies spawning... I have attempted a more "realistic" approach of introducing them. But i said, "**** it" Because gameplay to me, is a bit more of a prioritization. As long as you're doing things, i'm glad. I also will use decals, and signs, to give hints.

Yes, i made buildings for the specific purpose of trying to make more detailed buildings. I'm surprised the architecture isn't talked about more often. I'm, quite ashamed of it.

D0G... I had an idea for his appearance. Honestly, trust me... Alyx could've sent DOG on a mission to help other resistance members defeat other local combine battalions. Thus, DOG; helping you. I can remove it, if someone could prove the uselessness of DOG. I'm not dying on THAT hill.

I cannot blame you for using a pallet to jump over the toxic river. My sister had alot of criticism for the radio guy (BB) The only problem with subtitles, is that i don't think that they can be applied to audio files only. Game_text entity, would be a great alternative; however i would've had to make ALOT of them to breach character/letter limits. Also, it would've proved to be counter-productive to a new mechanic I've added (secret :D)

P.S. At the end of the First Chapter, you would've teleported to the next chapter. However, i didn't really see the purpose of this for the demo level. (Some rough work, i know.)

The puzzles in the toxic industrial area, are Algebra. (I bet you love your maths teacher now :D)

Barrels will now hide in bushes, forever!

Overall, I think your playthrough is constructive enough. I understand the witty comments (as i am a man of blunt "******* people off" as well).) I also think you're very comedically gifted. I appreciate the sincere hopeful comment that it has potential. I will definitely work around the clock, to try and "professionalize" my mod. Then again, i hope that i don't turn into the British version of Berkan.

I tell alot of my peers at school about this mod, and i hope to one day, tell the story of this mod.

Stay tuned, because i shall release demo videos of new features, and reduxes.

P.S. You should know why Crowbars are sus :3

Thank you, in sincerity -12Gauge.

P.S.S This is great PR Practice

To be honest D0G is kinda useless as all of his combat-based AI is scripted.

It was merely a cameo. The level he appeared on was remade from the ground up. So, no more DOG... ;(

I'm glad you took it well enough. I do have a bit of a sarcastic streak but all in all, I try to be as constructive as possible. I believe you've got a LOT of potential and I look forward to what comes from this next!
