This is the second version of my Half-Life mod, it has 8 maps to explore(not including the Selection Hub). Every new version of this mod will add at least 4 more maps to the game. This game is heavily inspired by games like LSD Dream Emulator and Yume Nikki.

Yeeeaaah development for this mod is pretty much dead.




There's not really much to say, NGL a couple weeks after posting that last article some months ago I lost all motivation for working on this. I work on other things now, like I made the 3D art for this article for example, but I'll still dabble in goldsource modding though so don't worry about that. I have a YouTube channel where I'll be posting some stuff (but even then I take forever to post things, but I did made a video a couple days ago sooo) and my cousin and I also made an Instagram thingy where random art stuff is posted.

Working on it was fun while it lasted though. This thing was more of an art project then a game but I'm still proud of it, and I'm glad that so many people liked it. And at least it had potential and actually got onto Moddb rather than sitting on my computer through its entirety. I'm also sorry if anybody felt mislead regarding the development of version 3, I really did think that I was going to pick up on it again, but that didn't happen and I'm sorry for that. If you're reading this, then you've beaten the game, and this is its ending. It might be a sour ending but it's an ending none the less.


THE END

Thanks for playing and I really hope you enjoyed it.

May all your days be groovy.

Version 2 of the mod is releasing this February 1st, I think I might take a short break.

This mod is not dead, production is just slow.

This is version 1 of my mod, the splash/menu screen looked weird. I fixed it so it didn't look as odd, you guys can go to the other download of this version...

[V2 Review]
Excelent work. The new "Hub" area beats the old one by all means. It's abstract and more open than the old one. Out of the 4 new levels that have been added, my favourite is definitelly Neon City. It just gives off this weird 90s-esque vibe that I just can't explain. My least favourite was Bright Moon Cottage, as it was just the first level from LSD Dream Emulator, but I'll still let it slide. The new version of The Autumn Forest Trails is good, but it's not as open as the one from V1 and personally I think that the combination of the two [V1 and V2] would make it even better. There was only one problem I had and it was the camera... again. I still just can't understand how this camera works. It still never stops moving and if you won't put the mouse sensivity really low you'll be spinning so fast that It will put the greatest ballet dancers to shame. And just like last time, I had to take a break because of it making me dizzy. Over all it's a great update, but please for the love of god make the camera more normal.

PS: I also would suggest a redesign of "Office Plains" in the next version. It's still kida bland and overall less interesting than the rest of the levels. It doesn't have to be major, just add a thing or two and it should be enough.

That's weird, I thought I fixed the camera? When you go to the mouse sensitivity settings is it turned way up?

I am just wondering what kind of mod this is going to be. Is it more of a walking sim type of mod or more of a shooting type of mod?

It's a trippy walking sim, similar to the gameplay of Yume Nikki where you just explore different environments.

I'll probably end up making a mod similar to it in the future, since I don't see a whole lot of HL1 mods that are walking sims like this one is. And congrats on the new computer, I'm still using an old laptop that was given to me about 4 years ago. I'll probably want to get a desktop computer to do more ambitious projects without worrying about lag.

I've downloaded the mod to see if I did a mistake somewhere when uploading it but the sensitivity was set to 2.4 by default, so I don't know what to tell you. I appreciate the helpful feedback and criticism and I'll be sure to apply it to version 3 when I start working on it. If anyone is having this same mouse sensitivity problem, please leave a comment/reply if you have the same issue so we can get this thing sorted out. I'm sure it can be fixed by changing the mouse sensitivity in the mouse control options.

What music is used in the mod? I really liked it

Most of the songs I used in the mod are old 80's songs that I slowed down. Then I would trim out a part that can be looped. Here's a list of the songs I edited for the mod.

Palm Tree Tropicana - Act Like You Know by Fat Larry's Band

Garden Skies - Voices in my Head by Naked Eyes

Autumn Forest Trails - Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears

The other songs for the Selection Hub and Office Plains were made in a free midi software called OpenMPT. It's very old...
