PREPARE TO DRIVE....


Highway 18 is an upcoming Half Life 2: EP2 mod, which will take you deep in to the country-like areas, forests, undergrounds and the roads of the Highway 18 world! A long trip is awaiting, and you will have to do anything you can to get to the endpoint!

In your Ford F150 (model 1990), you will be driving through many kinds of driveable areas like forests, rivers, undergrounds, mountains and of course HIGHWAY 18 ! Danger will occur on your path! Rebel's will try to destroy you, and zombies will try to eat you alive!

THE STORY....

Henry (you) recieves a phone call from a near friend in the city of Cheryl which are under attack of Rebels that are trying to burn down the city. The line gets cut off, as you speak, so you don't have any knowledge of if the city has been destroyed, or if your friend are still alive.

Left over to your car and map, you will be driving several hundred kilometers, and be running into a lot of barricades and complications.

Facts of Highway 18:

  • Highway 18 will be a "free-roam"-like mod. There won't be only one way to get to Cheryl, you will be able to drive several ways to get there.
  • You will be running into puzzles, where its necessary to drive back to the earlier maps (for example to get a battery for a port like in HL2)
  • Highway 18 have a country-like environment, and will be inspired alot from the U.S deserts and also Norway/Finland
  • The release date for Highway 18, will be something in 2011. We will release a demo of the mod in 2010, to get some useful feedback

New ideas going on

News 2 comments

I have been busy with helping at a huge lan party, so I haven't had the time to do this mod (for a week, sorry), but now I have been drawing some of my own ideas for the mod, and of course some of the ideas, that you, the community has brought to me. Its mostly based on what you guys have been telling me to include in the mod. One of the big things is the radio, which I am planning to intergrate into the car. Well enough of all that, here's the great list!Features and ideas for Highway 18

  • The car (obviously an important thing for many people...)
    • New car from the real world (hasn't been decided yet), maybe a ford pickup or something like that. Will be something "country-like", because that is the landscape theme.
    • Intergrated radio-streaming! Listen to radio over the internet, while you are driving your car! This could be 1.fm, frag.fm, etc. etc. There will also be a possibility for playing your own MP3 files on the local computer
    • Advanced speed-o-meter which tells you the cars speed in km/h and engine rpm (rounds per minute)
    • Details: We will try to give the new car model a lot of details. High res textures, and advanced modeling!
    • Lights: advanced lightning on both the front and back. There will also be extra flashing lights (mostly used at night), as you won't only be driving in daylight
  • Environment
    • A good and realistic environment, with a lot of "country-like"-details like mountains, dirty roads, forest, etc.
    • Blinded roads (the player should feel how to fail in driving). There will also be mountain roads, for driving up to hills and mountains.
    • Auto-changeable skybox: to reflect the usual daytime, the skybox will be automatically changing, either based on the time from the start of the mod, or the actual computer time.
    • Auto-switching road-lights: you know them from the real life, road lights. There will be placed some of them along the roads, to ensure good light detail. They will switch on as the night comes, and turn off while the daylight turns back :)
    • Road-details. I love signs for example, so I will make sure that a lot of signs and other road details will be placed. The highway 18 signs will be inspired from the European road signs.
  • Actual gameplay (I guess that's important too lol)
    • New HUD, different color, more advanced information about your health. Also a "helping hand" which can help you if you get stuck on a puzzle
    • New weapons. There will be "country-like" weapons like a shotgun or a revolver. Also weapons that you've normally seen, like desert eagle, AK47, etc.
    • A cell phone, to keep contact with the rest of the world
    • New "hands" - more realistic hands.
    • *NEW* a knife, to melee your enemies, for example if you have run out of bullets for your weapons (thanks to Swoff)

I have also been doing some new artwork, by making some new pictures for the mod:


If you have any other ideas to add, please feel free to post a comment!! I am so grateful for your help, thanks again!

man, mods seem like they are so complex to make. What with all the shadows and stuff you have to program into the game must make it so irritating to make.

I like these U.S. themed environments, also, your idea is open for much fun and it differs from the normal 08/15 mod sortiment.
You've got my blessing and track.
