After weeks of rewriting and feedback a complete first draft of the script is completed. Since the mod is story driven the plot rivals that of a classic scifi movie.
The script is being very well recieved by all members and a select few outsiders who've promised to keep quiet about what happens
The research phase is next, with most mod members improving their skills in their particular area. I myself have been toying with the HL1 sdk, learning the important aspects like GUIs and AIs that will be cruicial to making the mod a success.
We're leaning towards an episodic roleout, the 4 chapters being released a few months after one another. The first chapter would take longer than the others because we'd have to work out a save system and do most of the modelling. The other chapters would only need mapping and voice acting.
With any luck the rumours of the HL2 SDK release at ECTS are true and we'll be able to being tinkering with code pretty soon.
It's all happening!
