      Krudd is transfixed by this mod for half-life. He has me checking it regularly now!

      Basically they are totally re-creating Half-Life 1 using the source engine

      Looks really nice so far.

      Their latest news update says:
      "With the addition of these new team members, we are now closing all applications for voice acting, animation, and texture art."

      I’d imagine all the heavy modeling work is done at this point. It seems they are now hiring programmers to work with existing ones, and also "effects managers". And I’m DYING to play this game.

      I’m just wondering, how complete is the game at this point? In percentage?

      It was going great awhile back but then their servers got hacked and they lost aload of their code. Now don’t ask me this how they could be so stupid for that to happen but I do believe it set the mods development back considerably.

      As for what I’ve seen so far I can’t wait to see the Gargantua in game, its looking great. :)

      As far as I know they’re shooting to have it out before or around Episode 2. Doesn’t look like that’s going to happen now. I’d say come back in a year and a half. These mods always get delayed lol :lol:

      Well, Valve got hacked while they were making Half-Life 2 and their source code was released online (something like 25% of it) so they had to delay the release for "security" reasons. I’ve been working with the source engine a bit recently and there is a lot of code to dig through so not surprising modes on it get held back. Having said that I’ve been keeping my eye on this one for a while and it really is looking very nice.
