    Favorite things about this thread. #1 Learning how most other games have wasted their disk space, and that this UNPAID DEVELOPER GROUP is going to show them how to do it right. #2 The banter between developers ^^

    Really it's just a technique we're "stealing" from CS:S. Not really anything new, tbh

    Thank you all for your kind words! Will we see the clouds move from the wind as well? Or is that asking too much? Not at all! We will add sky-domes to the levels so you will see also some moving clouds :)

    Hello fellow research associates, With the warmth of summer drawing to an end I thought it would be the perfect time to delve into the mysterious realm of Xen through AI programming. This summer I have been working near round the clock to get a lot of…

    Many great ideas here. I think showing a bit more of the Black Ops' progression throughout the facility would be nice. Obviously they can't put too much in - ther's already the Race X, HECU, and original Xenians to establish. It would be cool however to…

    That's one thing I wonder myself if the parking garage was a more central location.

    Race X are supposed to be a seperate alien race from another dimension beyond Xen. They are attracted to Earth after detecting the dimensional rift between Earth and Xen. They take advantage of the dimensional rift to invade.(Valve would later use a…

    @your evil twin very good points, that was quite observant of you! I'm thinking, if anything, barney could possibly encounter some suprise pit-drones, maybe even as an easter egg type area, but that's a big maybe. As for Guard Duty seeing more extensive…

    Race X is very vague in my eyes. It´s clear that Gearbox added them to not break "consistency" of Xen race created by Valve. It´s not known much about them so far, but on the other hand, I think that´s not bad in the end. Liquidlnk, I can say I share…

    This final area could be more maze like in design, as perhaps a callback to the old quake games that inspired the HL series, with the sprites heading towards the purple portal serving as a guide to the players on which way to go. You all may also want…
