Over the past few months I have been working diligently to produce new textures in order to give this mod its own feel (so as not to play through and recognize all the hl2 textures).
Unfortunately, the unthinkable has happened. Hundreds of man-hours have been lost in a hard drive crash. Out of 194 vtf's (and vmt's), only 21 vtfs were recovered.
Fortunately, I kept photoshop files of most of my textures on another hard drive. Still, it will take some time to remake the vmts and vtfs, along with all the textures that weren't backed up.
Progress on a map was also set back by a month.
