As you can see we've finally made the switch to Half-Life². It hasnt been an easy change, but as you can see by the screenshots below, were moving pretty fast considering we currently have a very small team. Were still the same mod, same story and same goals, only difference is the mod is now for Half-Life².
We already have two players complete. Both are heavily modified version of Half-Life² models. The uv mapping and skins have been re-done on both, and things like necklaces and bandannas have been added. Below are the renders of both models (remember that things like the necklaces get reflections when in-game, so in the renders they look fairly basic), and yes, the models are already in-game and fully animated!

We also have a new mapper on the team. i3ada55 has been around in the Half-Life 1 and Half-Life² community for a very long time now, and has released some amazing maps like aim_stalker. Its going to be great having someone with this kind of knowledge on the team, especially for our original COD mappers they need to make the switch.
Just-Me is also straight off the block and has dived into Half-Life² mapping in hammer. He's already made some good progress on one of his maps.
