Mechmod is truely making it's way up there, and amazes my eyes everytime they have something new to send in. Well today ladies and gentlemen, they've released a trailer that demonstrates their graphical water effects for this half-life 1 based mod, as well as lots of 2d art for us to feast on.

MechMod Water Trailer

MechMod's version for Half-Life 1, which will soon be out in the public's hands (or hard disks to be precise), is a stepping stone towards something much bigger. We have put a lot of effort to try and make our HL1 version's only release as pleasing as possible in terms of graphical advancements and mecha action. So we now present Step 1 of 3 of our release process, a video demo to the 3D water effects that MechMod has to offer. Pushing the boundaries of the Half-Life 1 engine? Our lead graphics programmer, Jason, certainly tries to - as he is the main man to credit behind our graphics.

Looks very sleek and professionally done. And that goes for everything... The site, the ingame UI, the menu, everything. This mod may be the one that finally breaks my dislike for robot games... This one looks quite good.

What music was that in the trailer? Sounds sexy.

And oh yeah, great work on the mod as always. I've been watching this one for some time.
