My name is James Nolan. I live in an old apartment in Saria, a nice city where people live happily and peacefully. I was born in 2011, a year after World War III ended. My father, Maurice, was the commanding General of our army, and we won thanks to his strategic intelligence. He lived happily with me and my mother, a woman he loved very much, and held her very dear.
Then she died in 2018 due to a severe heart-attack. My father became depressed and was enraged easily and often. After a couple years, he vanished, leaving me alone. I had to live in an orphanage until I turned 18. There, however, I had met my best friend, Harold Dasher. We grew up together and planned what we were going to do when we got out. We went to college, Harold was taught in the ways of science. I tried it, but it didn't appeal to me very well. I decided to join the military, and learn how to protect people, just like my father had. However, that was one goal I had in my head since I was a kid. To find my Dad.
Okay, I'll go ahead and say this right off the bat- This mod will most likely NOT have any of my own models, for NPC's or weapons. I will re-skin all of the NPC's, and some models. But that's it.
This is my first mod, so I do intend to give you some nice levels, along with a great story and voice-acting. Yes, I know that another Half-Life 2 mod will be slightly boring, but this is more along the lines of testing how making and creating a mod is like. Hopefully my next one can be more creative. =P Well, I hope that some people will enjoy this, and if they do, I'll be quite content. =D
*I figured out how to edit this, so I put the story here.
Hey guys, I'm sorry I have no new news to show off. I'm working on more...behind the scenes stuff, I guess you could call it, such as voices for this first part and I'm also fixing up the level. Thanks to OverturnStick, I have a whole site full of new textures to put in my building, so I'm going to be working with those as well.
I'm also trying to fix up the already-shown custom skins for the NPC's. Along those lines, I'm working on new hand skins, so you won't have to have the boring HEV suit, which would be strange considering you are not Gordon Freeman. Sorry. =P
Another thing I am trying to figure out how to do is how to make a custom HUD. I'm sure I'll get that working soon enough, and once all these are done, I can continue work on the first level. And, of course, show them to all of you folks! Have a good day, peoples, and soon enough the update will arrive for those who care! =D
The Skins I've been working on for the mod! Please Enjoy!
Here's just a little bunch of crap for you all to read!
This is the list of features for Take Over. While the list is not large, I believe these are some good features for a mod to make it more interesting...
