Today the website of the HEAT Half Life 2 modification, www.heatmod.com, has been launched.
HEAT is a team-play oriented tactical shooter set in a modern and urban environment. We try to give the game a good mix between realism and gameplay, although HEAT is going to contain more realism than most modifications, which call themselves realistic.
One of our main features is that we will use Iron Sights instead of crosshairs accompanied by a realistic aiming system.
The movement system gives the player many opportunities to use the surroundings to his advantage, e.g. lean around corners, open doors slowly or climbing on boxes, roofs and over fences, but he will also be limited by a stamina system and limited space for weapons.
For a more detailed description feel free to surf on our website!
You will not only find more information and a forum for further questions there, but also 4 wallpapers for your desktop and our first concept arts.
Even though work on HEAT has already started, we are still looking for motivated modders! We are still searching for coders, modelers, texture artists, mappers and animators.
We are in contact with a motion capturing studio where we are allowed to do some motion capturing for HEAT for free! Therefor we are searching for a player-animator who has either experience in working with motion capturing or has already got great skills in animation.
More information about joining our work can be found on our website.
