Engine: Xash3D with mod XashXT by Unkle Mike


You are in the shoes of David Isaac, a 35 years old worker sent from his laboratory in the USA to the Groot Kelder Research Institute in Africa to check the functionality of a particle accelerator. The scientists in Groot Kelder also study the creatures from Xen that survived the nuclear blast from Black Mesa. Of course the experiment goes wrong, all the Xen creatures escape and new aliens will soon come...(to be continued)

About beta version

News 4 comments

Firstly, thanks for all the kind words said about The Volcano MOD. I appreciate that you played and liked this and this makes me to continue with this game. :D

Things we've done so far from alpha version:

  • The big change is the engine. Alpha version (for those who have played it) was made in engine of AM:Rebirth, coded by SysOp and Foxtrop. Now we work on XashXT.
  • First introductive map from the alpha (hlgk00.bsp) was cuted and replaced with another 2 cutscene maps, where is presented a small part of the storyline;
  • Major changes in all maps from the alpha version, improved arhitecture and functionality;
  • Major changes at "Test chamber" too: architecture, functionality and FX improved;
  • Beta version is "Part I" from the game (Groot-Kelder) wich will contain appx. 18 maps on 5 chapters.
  • So far I managed to implement portable Medkit from Alpha version, and a few minor changes in source codes;
  • Another sounds and models for weapons;
  • Another specific NPCs, the Paranoia and CSCZ were removed.

Things that we propose to make them further:

  • Firstly to finish structure of the rest of maps;
  • Realistic explosions effects like in Alpha version: screen shake + frag gibs + particle smoke and fire;
  • Realistic player movement and fighting, like in alpha version (without that slow crunch);
  • Weapon drop system;
  • To have a flashlight just when you pick up them, isn't incorporated in suit, because here you'll have a work jacket not a HEV suit;
  • Use display hud button. When you approach a button will display on the player's screen a HUD which will indicate to the player that is near to a button;
  • func_collision and realistic collision sounds+specific decals when you shooting in metals, in woods or in another materials like that, like in engine from alpha version (rebirth).

Some improvment screenshoots:

"There's always room for improvement" - this is one of my favorite quotes.
