Sorry if I haven't really posted anything in a while, college and life have been tag teaming my ass. Hoping I can get SOMETHING out soon-ish.
Ok so I just woke up from a new Half-Life trailer dream thing Valve were showing off Source 2 tech at a tradeshow or something, going through stuff like water simulation, snow, before it slowly pulled out over the Arctic, as two Resistance helicopters ala the one seen at the end of Ep2 fly over the tundra, catching up with two drop ships carrying gunships (for some reason), before the Resistance copters manage to shoot down the two dropships. The two helicopters are eventually shot down by a third gunship, before one last helicopter comes out to shoot it down, succeeding, but taking too much damage, beginning to crash as we hear Dr. Kleiner's voice warning Gordon to take the copter down as slowly as he can as it plummets into the snow. Cut to the crashed helicopter, as it pulls away, up to the cliff face as a new Hazardous Environments-esque Mike Morasky song plays, showing Gordon, Eli and Barney looking at a Combine installation, as HALF-LIFE 5 pops up. ...I am severely disappointed…
Fun Fact: The G-Man was, at one point, involved with Portal 2's story, based on developer comments in The Final Hours of Portal 2 and leftover map logic. sp_a2_bridge_intro, the map introducing Hard Light Bridges, has map logic remaining in it referring to a cut G-Man encounter. I can't 100% be sure when he was cut from the story, so it's up in the air if he was cut early or late into the Multicore era of Portal 2's development.
Feels odd having living humans in a P2 adjacent Aperture.
Incredibly WIP stuff. Prelude related. Not planning a full remake or anything, just having some fun.
Should also post the Combine posters as well, adapted/based on the HL:A ones, sized to fit the paper poster textures from HL2
WIP... Thing. Need to figure out what I want to do with this map.
Been on here for two years now... ...I really need to post some of the new shit™ I've been working on.
Can't wait for the GMod Subcommunity to launch alongside Episode 3!
