Raising the Bar is a mod based off of the idea of amalgamating the earliest concepts of Half-Life 2 into a coherent story. This mod is not a leak-fix, nor is it a concept art recreation gallery; it will be a full story with inspiration from the old material as well as our own ideas of how to make it all fit together.

A small little update for all our followers, and some news!

Posted by on

Hey everyone, it's us again!

So first off, here's some new stuff for you guys to look at (stubs are here, full sized pictures are in the images gallery):




And more!


Now for an update that doesn't involve lots of shiny things.

We're going to be putting out updates regularly every two weeks.

We've been trying to standardize how our internal workings will operate and we've gotten a schedule set up for updating you all. Previously, we really just met up every weekend and discussed about what was ready to go public, whether it be a map, a texture set, a model, etc. Couple that with the fact that we basically have team members spanning across all major time-zones and you've got yourself some "meeting absentees", to put it lightly. It was somewhat hectic trying to message anyone available for updates, so we implemented a new "To-Do" list of our own that should definitely help everyone in the team keep tabs on what's going on as it's constantly saved and updated. So expect at least a little bit more coordination on our part for new content in further updates. We've definitely got more in the works, just be aware that the individual update sizes can vary quite a bit: some weeks there isn't much time to work on this stuff and others there's a ton of progress.

See you all again in two weeks!

Great Announcement that we can all look forward to every two weeks, something to be hopeful of! Random question that doesn't have to be answered, has progress started on modeling the main characters of the mod such as Alyx, Eli, the Consul, Captain Vance, or Helena Mossman?

Although progress on those models have not been started, currently we have 2 modellers (including myself) learning character modelling in order to do those characters.

I'm quite happy with a monthly update, no matter how small! Thanks for the news though, this mod is looking very promising.

It's actually every 2 weeks. :D We should have some decent progress to show each week but as the article says, it really depends.

Nice, progress is really smooth good job guys, but updates every two weeks are not necessary, don't rush and take your time!

Although I agree with you, we feel that more frequent updates will encourage us to work faster and get content out to you guys more quickly. We would prefer that this project does not drag out for years.

Well, this is a mod for the leak story. Why do you say that?

This mod looks amazing so far! And I was wondering, can I be a play-tester for this mod? My timezone is UTC-07:00 Mountain Time (US & Canada)
