Hello, Richard Falkins, we are recruitments agents sent by Space Dynamic Incorporated. Would you like to sign up for voluntary testing to improve your current condition?

Richard Falkins, a death row inmate, has agreed to participate in testing after being proposed to do so by the Space Dynamic Incorporation. The company thought he was a good samaritan, but in reality Richard signed up in order to improve his chances at surviving the already poor conditions of prisons. Unfortunately, what he didn't know is that it's even worse than in the New Mexico Correctional Facility he once was in. Serious punishments for disobedience, heavily armed personnel, poor cell quality, and the possibility of death during testing. He can finally flee due to an opportunity coming up just 8 days after his arrival. His new goal is to destroy Space Dynamic Incorporated for what they do to the inmates.

This mod runs on GoldSrc with some code modifications to it in order to change up the gameplay from vanilla Half-Life a bit. With 49 maps and 10 chapters, the campaign will be around as long as vanilla Half-Life. Expect the full mod release to be by early-to-mid 2023!

Quality Changes of SDE:R

News

So, what has changed?

Space Dynamic Escapee: Redux has had steady map progress since the previous article that was posted on 24th of February. Today is the 1st of May. Let’s check out what exactly has changed!

  • Older maps have been polished more! This means that they received more decorations and have been adjusted for the sake of gameplay.

article1

One such example from sderedux_c0a0. In the new version, restrooms were added to the cafeteria section.

  • Better inmate voicelines! We have used uberduck.ai for this, which you can check out by clicking here. Of course, it is known for its not-so-pristine quality, but using the Black Mesa Walter voice and lowering its frequency to 11025 HZ in Audacity allowed us to make voice lines almost up to par with vanilla Half-Life’s scientist voice lines.

article2

This inmate in sderedux_c1a0a uses this method in order to speak to Falkins, who the player controls.

  • Newer maps are being beta tested and improved! What new maps, you may ask? sderedux_c1a0, sderedux_c1a0a, sderedux_c1a0b and sderedux_c1a1! They have all been finished, making the total map count in-game to be 5 out of 49, with 2 chapters out of 10 being done.

A single screenshot each of the 4 maps mentioned above.

  • New menu background! The original SDE mod did have a menu background, but it was very poorly done. The SDE:R background is better done, but it’s still a work in progress.

article6

Just like how Gordon is in the menu background of vanilla Half-Life, that is Richard Falkins.

Unfortunately, that is it for this short, albeit rather informative article. If you do have any suggestions or questions about this, please put them in the comments below or in our Discord server, where most of the progress is being posted. Thank you, have a nice day and stay tuned for more!

You know, the way you made the brush never change from the past. But hope you change the way you design the map, some of the screenshot is already good and some need a rework.
Good luck with the project, wish you the best.

Thanks! I am coming back to the maps and reworking them right now; I was on a hiatus due to burnout and stress issues. Expect to see an article soon!
