Good day yet again, people of ModDB. We trust it finds you well. As for us, we're busy Hammering away at this Course, and it's actually coming along quite well!

Tram Training

Over the last few months we've been working our way out of this Alpha phase and into Beta, and while we're not quite there yet, it's certainly in sight! Yep, through university, work and a hint of Impatience, we're polishing our levels and - while we don't want anyone to jump the gun - even working on the finishing touches on a couple. It's all quite pretty and fun if we do say so ourselves.

Holobutton

Alongside that, our script is nearing its final revision. That's right, our bit of additional storytelling is coming in clear and almost ready for implementation. Amidst all of this progress, though, we have hit a minor speed bump.

You see, currently the only one of our members with choreography know-how isn't very experienced. We could make do, but certainly don't want to bring down the quality of this little mod with bad choreography and faceposing, so we need your help. If anyone reading is interested or knows someone who might be, hit up the job page and get in contact with us so we can start bringing this script to life!

That's all for now, guys. We look forward to any applicants and hope to have this project in your hands before the turn of the century. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or cries of outrage, feel free to leave a comment below and we'll address them as well as we can. Until next update!

I like it when somebody does put effort into things, taking the time to get it all well made.

yeah unlike the failed mod blackmesa: uplink wich one dev made in two months and it still looks like its in alpha state.

this mod however is taking his time wich is good and we apreciate that, we know this mod will be good, there is however one question i want to know, will this mod have voice overs?

Yep, it'll have voice work. We've gone the extra mile as well and contacted a couple of Black Mesa's actors, who've agreed.

Seriously you guys are doing such a wonderful job on this project it would be a shame if the Black Mesa Devs didn't include or at least recommend your very great work.

Thanks for providing update news. I wish Gaben would do the same for HL2:EP3 (or HL3, whatever). I'm so looking forward to this mod!! ^^

I think one key thing to take away from this update is that we very much need choreographers. The lack of a choreographer is a huge snag right now, and it's preventing a good amount of forward progress. So please, if anyone knows anyone who can help with it, don't hesitate to contact them about the possibility of helping us out! We'd be extremely grateful!

Rebuilding a scenes.image isn't difficult, so while releaseing some of our own isn't totally out of the question, we're more likely to just release a quick tutorial on how to do that, as that's less hassle for everyone.

For captions, this guy is on our team ( Forums.blackmesasource.com ), so there will definitely be a version compatible with those mods. You can already see some entries, even.
