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!

Sounds great. I'm not a fan of the episodic structure, but then again, works differently for different mods. Hopefully it will do well for yours.

We just want to get something out as soon as possible you know? We could do the entire thing in one go (in fact once it's completed it would be released both as episodes and one large download) but each chapter is so different. To be honest we're not sure what we're gonna do, having episodes could complicate carrying on a game.
We'd have to wait and see how things progress.
