Another month and a ton more stuff is done. Every single character model, weapon, sound, whatever, is finalized and done. Right now I'm going through all the singleplayer and multiplayer maps to re-texture and add more details that make sense.

Another month and a ton more stuff is done. Every single character model, weapon, sound, whatever, is finalized and done. Right now I'm going through all the singleplayer and multiplayer maps to re-texture and add more details that make sense. Certain Marine missions you now start with a squad of marines at your side. The cool part of that is they will follow you if you hit the taunt key within sight of them. I did the same for a couple of the Alien bonus missions where friendly aliens are generated from a hive. There will be NO friendly predators. Sorry.

I'm also adding many new graphical and atmospheric enhancements like skybox details ranging from planets and galaxies to rock formations, trees, buildings, and horizon lines. The skybox is the area of the map you can't reach outside the playable zone. Rebellion did very little with this, leaving the maps with a "sterile" feel in comparison with recent first person shooters. Some other cool things I'm adding which for some reason were totally left out in singleplayer are skinned hanging corpses and cocooned people. A few are still alive and beg "kill me" when you get close.

My buddy bladeghost is still up to no good. He's doing insane things with new maps and just posted his first video tutorial explaining level creation. If you're interested in throwing your hand in the AvP modding ring I strongly suggest checking it out and memorizing every word he says: Moddb.com

Keep checking for more screenshots and videos. My first big mod release is closer than you might think. I just wanna ask the people following this to PLEASE play through the entire game before you download my mod. I know it's really hard, but is totally worth it. I'm wondering, should I put up my completed profile/savedgame so everyone can easily access all the singleplayer maps including the bonus missions?

Thanks for the update Mad Max!

Everyone SHOULD play through the entire game so they could appreciate all the changes, whether major or subtle, that you did hard work for.
