New leadership, contact info, next update, muffins.

Posted by on

I guess it's time to post something.

New leadership:

As you probably already now, I'm a new leader of Half-Life: Update mod. If you didn't knew and you're confused, then check last post ( Moddb.com ) So, first of all; I didn't want to talk about myself and how I will behave, but since the last update-news my moddb PM-inbox was already spammed with messages and majority of them were unpleasant ones. Oh well I guess toxic behavior of kids and trolls from moddb will never change. Anyways I want to make one thing straight, I will stay friendly and polite to people who are also friendly and polite, but I will have no mercy for trolls and butthurt kiddos. Previous leader was like a calmest person on earth and ignored most of the hateful stuff, but I will not. You still can post positive and negative feedback and suggestions as long as you behave like an adult, any other messages (including death threats and comments build with more curses than other words) will be filtered right away.

Next update and release:

The most important info; The next release won't include Opposing Force support. There's a lot other stuff to do (and fix) before we can start working on OF. The next build should include Closed Caption support, improved method of loading multiple language files and a lot of fixes and smaller additions. I can't give you any exact ETA on the release, but it should be somewhere in the next month. Aside from code work, I will be updating articles page with new FAQ info and tutorials (e.g. how to translate the mod).

Contact info:

If you want to reach me, you can always send me PM via moddb.com OR you can send me an email directly to: theprophetlol@gmail.com

Edit:

Looking at my news-post now, it sounds like I'm bashing the whole moddb with: "Oh well I guess toxic behavior of kids and trolls from moddb will never change." sentence. Sorry I didn't mean it like that. There are just all sorts of people on the whole internet :P In every site/community there are also trolls and little butthurt kiddos. Moddb is not different, there are both nice people here and furious kids that can go ape-shit crazy about "no" or "soon" replies.

I don't get why some people are sending you messages where are hateful. On YouTube I wouldn't be surprised since there are all sorts of people, but Moddb is a better community so why would people do that?

Also, good luck with the mod! I hope that you will be as amazing as Fograin was.

They think the mod is going to turn into **** when it isnt. It is really good that there is a new guy developing this mod instead of it being in hiatus

Maybe, but if they would just create some things which could be improved I wouldn't see a problem since constructive criticism is a good thing. That helps both the publisher to be better at the thing which is he doing and the customer get a better product. However, sending a hateful message or even a death threads is a problem which should be solved and those people should be punished for that. The worst is that if its an adult and then it's a problem since when someone is an adult he should have at least some knowledge unless he is mentally disabled or something like that.

Enhancement mods always spawned the worst of the community, I remember kids going nuts over Half-Life: Enhanced back then.

Best of lucks here too, if you need me for any model edits (I guess you will go for fixed original/gearbox assets?) count me in.

Oh man, I remember the flood of hate when HL:E died.
About models; That's awesome to hear :D Yes I will go with fixed original valve/gearbox models, I'll keep LD style of models. After code (HL/BS) part will be fixed I'll start accepting content commits and I think about gathering a team of people to help with development :)

I think yes. I won't cut away anything, instead I plan to fix bugs and develop further on base created by: Fograin.

So with this transfer of ownership are all of the previous features going to be the same or were they thrown out?
