Today I have great news to tell. New models and maps are coming great along.

Posted by on

Time for another newsupdate. This month was a great one for my mod. I did once again great progress and also get a lot of help from my 3 great teammates M82Sniper, Thanoshltbeginning & of course Neclipse. Also special thanks to all the great people on twhl.com which are often very helpful in solving problems or giving advices.

With the fantastic help from M82sniper we finally included many custom models into my mod. So expect many new creature variants to fight up against. For now we only included custom Zombies but we plan to add more models to the different monsters in the near future. For example you can expect to see some walking mutated Zombie soldiers with their own unique horrified sounds in one of my chapters.

As for the mapping front I recently finished 2 maps by the proper layout only the fine tuning and scripting remains there. It is a great thing and finally the pieces are slowly coming all together. So far I have 7 working maps which are already playable in chronological order. That is of course nothing to the map number which still needs to be done but it is a first big step into the right direction.

Well enough of the chit chat. Time for some screenshots, enjoy.





And last but not least our new Zombies ingame.

That soldier zombie really should be a bit wider I think... and whatever zombie is on the bottom left its WAY too tall and skinny...it looks horribly disproportionate. The mapping looks pretty decent though! Will this mod have new weapons as well? I think that's one of the best parts of mods is at least a few new ways to kill somethin' =P

the bottom middle zombie isn't good. it would not attack anybody without the headcrab attached...

Yeah, that's what I thought. He may have some other use for this model, I'm not sure.

Edit- Just saw 23's post below this. :\

@Nozzy: Don't worry the Zombie just look like the others I just stretched the picture a little that's why it looks a bit weird.

As for new weapons that's a definetly "no". I never understood mods which had to add 100 different human weapons They are all just the same they just look & sound different only in few mods they really have different firing & aiming behaviour that would however requiring complicated coding.

Artanis: Don't worry The middle Zombie will be only used in a specific chapter of mine in which it will make typical science fiction sense. :D

Glad you guys still like it. :)

I'll consider it. Maybe I can release such a thing as a small optional addon after the release it has however no priority at all at the moment. sorry.

Btw: You can easily replace every models you don't like yourself. I did that for example with the Sentry gun and nearly all monster models. My grunts are moving their eyes the original Blue Shift HD pack didn't had that feature.
