Some great eye candy we have here, the whole transformation, one game to another. I love the atmosphere, the dark decaying life, the rust and rotten surroundings. I have awkward moments where i'd desire to explore such a place, a place like the cursed struck shopping mall that's within silent hill 3, if you've played Requiem...

Oh what if those "if's" were factual, to wake up in a blood stained, mould patched bed, looking through a barred and rotten dust infested window where a red glow fights its way through to lighten that cold and wet room you call home.

I understand why they call it paradise.

I know what you mean, I love looking at photos of abandoned buildings and thinking about what it'd be like to be walking around those environments in the dark with a torch.

Of course I've played SH3, in fact I'm gonna start it for the third time soon 8)

Yeah, the silent hill world seems like the perfect holiday. I'm booking mine soon :P

Brilliant, i've just started again myself. I think i've played through 3 at least 5 times now, and even so it never ever becomes dull, not even for a second, i just love the locations, the way the game overpowers you. I'm trying to reach the highest difficulty myself.

I'd love to help out with the project if ever you need assistance Requiem.

Madness, but it definately pays off.


And now, for the what's likely to be the stupidest question you'll ever get, so take good care of this one. I know it's a "mod" and everything, but is it necessairy to own Half Life to play this? Because, I don't know, the engine might be opensource by now, and I doubt you'll be using any HL content, like Barney.

It'd be kinda awkward having to pirate the whole game just to see one mod, you know :)


EDIT: because it's important

It's taken 4 pages before anyone's pointed that out, I'm impressed :lol: Actually that font was used originally in the opening credits to the film Se7en, so Monolith technically ripped it off Kyle Cooper who designed the original typeface. All I did was edit the image with PS since I had no actual typeface to work with, it's possible that the logo may change for the final product. I'm no rip-off artist thanks very much!

Thanks!

Eh? I took that reference from a photo of Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre holding a sledgehammer so it's not wrong :?

The engine isn't open-source unfortunately, so you will need the game to play it sadly. I did fiddle about with porting it to the darkplaces engine but it'd require too much extra effort to make it work and the project is already ambitious enough.

Pirating isn't encouraged here at Posty obviously, but if you did so for just one mod, then this one would most definately be worth that effort :P You can pick up Half-Life + Opposing Force + Blueshift + Counter-Strike for under £5 these days anyhow, so it's very cheap.. especially considering Blood would cost much more off of ebay.

Update for you all, another vehicle model converted over from a custom Source (HL2) model and reskinned from scratch by moi :D

which automobile manufacturer paid you sweet sweet money for putting their sign on car's front and back? :>
signatures are irrelevant. they are for those naive simpletons, who think that they can sum their whole life philosophy in several worlds.
idiots.

Haha, It's just some random logo I hacked together quickly, its meant to look a bit like ford.

The font doesn't have an official title, nor has it ever been released to my knowledge. If anyone can prove me otherwise, I will gladly lick their face with glee.

Thought the wheels on the patrol car were too fancy, which do you think works better?

It's more zing.

Bling bling.

I prefer the vintage caddy look of the rims on the left one. But both are nice.

Jack's player model is a bit buggy, but it's still a placeholder as it's a reskinned Max Payne from MP2 which is illegal.

@The pic: I've made up my mind. That pic rocks, and the car looks perfect.

@The quote: lol.

@Jack's model: He's creeping me out, man. :shock: Look at his position!
