Post news RSS Lovac 2063 Feburary 2022 Update!

An update to catch you up with all the new happenings on the mod.

Posted by on

Hello All,

I am guessing many of you thought this mod was dead and you had very good reason to. Without clear communication Its easy to jump to conclusions and on my behalf I am sorry. However that's where the sad part of this update ends. I am pleased to announce that Lovac 2063 has never had more steam behind it and today I will show you exactly why.

When I started Lovac I was as a mapper. Not a particularly skilled one but I knew enough about the engine to make something that people could play. The things I didn't know how to do I would work around and come up with alternatives to because I was stubborn. However a few months ago I was working on the mod and the thought hit me: Lovac is my passion project, And If I ever want to see it reach level of awesomeness that I dreamed it up as then I would need to innovate. So I began scouring for talent to add to my team. Not just musicians and voice actors anymore but modellers, coders and animators! And for the past few months I have been working with them to make Lovac the GAME I want you all to play.

If you have played the Alpha then you know that we already have enhanced movement in the game. But what is enhanced movement without fluid gameplay? I have worked with my team to add some quality of life improvements to the game such as:

Quick Grenade
Quick Melee
A takedown systems that allows the player to do third person executions on humanoid enemies

And more planned to come such as:

Quick Gravity gun (Will be the super gravity gun reskinned as the players augmented hand)
X-Ray Mode (Possibly)

We are also working to replace and re-engineer all current weapons. For instance due to good feedback on the shotgun from the alpha we have touched up the code to make it Semi-Automatic in order to make it feel unique. Changes to the game come from your feedback so let us know what you would want to see in a remade HL2 weapon.

Now onto the cool stuff. In order to bring my mod to life It knew that I would need some models exclusive to the mod. So through the last few weeks the talented modeller known as gear GEλR°#3990 (On Discord) Has made some great models for us with even more to come!

Apart from the main character we also have something you've probably never seen before.

Gman without his suit jacket. Why has he appeared in 2063? Why does he have blood on Him? Those questions will be answered in the full game.

And that rounds up all the most of the news we have for you save a few cool things. But Hey, somethings are better experienced as a surprise ;) Expect more updates from team Lovac every few months as we slowly get closer to a release day.

Stay Safe, See you next time and just remember:

Great to hear it's still in development, even if it feels like you may be developing feature-creep as these gameplay additions are quite large compared to the average HL2 mod.

That being said, I was quite impressed by the demo despite it's rough edges!

You may want to work on the blood on the shirt, tho. It looks more like Gman spilled some fruit punch!

You'll be happy to know that most the features are complete then. The only thing not finished on that list completely is our third person take down animations and that just has to do with map system implementation at this point.

The message in the end and the look of that render makes me wonder if Cooper's forehead is so ****** up because he submitted self to lobotomy to forget something. I ean just look at that metal on his skull, no way his brain wasn't scooped out.

"You can't outrun your sins forever, Cooper."
That's what the binary message says. Can you maybe give us a clue of what does that mean?
