    [h2]About[/h2]
    People are starting to go missing around the Aral Sea. Nobody knows why, The only common report is the appearence of the mythical "Demon Lights of Moynaq", but that's just local hysteria, right?

    Ivan's Secrets is a total conversion mod for the Source Engine, with a focus on Horror, RPG, and Tactical gunplay, set in the Aral Sea and it's surrounding areas.
    FEATURES

    Realistic gunplay, firearms handle as they do in real-life.
    Recreations of accurate locations.[/list]Vastly improved enemy AI. They will now suppress, take cover and retreat.
    A total conversion, with no references to HL2.
    A variety of environments, from abandoned Soviet Bunkers to arid Valleys.
    Plenty of new enemies.
    22 fully customizeable weapons.
    A tense and moody singleplayer.
    An action packed and tactical co-op.
    Fully voice acted.
    A persistant inventory between both gamemodes, with semi-randomly generated items.
    [/release]

    [release]
    [h2]What exactly is this mod?[/h2]
    Ivan's Secrets is a tactical shooter/RPG/survival horror singleplayer, and cooperative shooter. Inspiration has come from a variety of sources, not limited to: STALKER, SWAT 4, Fallout, Half-Life.

    If you enjoyed any of the games previously mentioned, you'll definitley enjoy this. The focus is on a more tactical experience, so running and gunning generally won't get you far.
    [/release]

    [release]
    [h2]So what do I need to play this?[/h2]

    Not much at all! An installation of of any source game (CS:S, TF2, Portal etc.) is all that is required. Thanks to Valve's extensive library, you probably own one of these already.
    [/release]

    [release]
    [h2]Tactical Experience?[/h2]

    That's right. Your weapons are very effective, killing quickly. Unfortunately this also applies to you, and you'll die very quickly if unprepared and unaware. Make sure you're equipped for the right job, with an extensive selection of weapons and attachments to choose from.
    [/release]

    [release]
    [h2]Can you tell me more about this "extensive selection"?[/h2]

    In all, there are 22 weapons to choose from (which is more than enough, don't you agree?)



    Not to mention the plethora of attachments. Scopes, silencers, laser pointers, flashlights, holographic-sights, ammunition counters...
    [/release]

    [release]
    [h2]How exactly does Co-Op work?[/h2]
    Co-Op missions are semi-randomized experiences, including area-defence, clearing area's, searching for items and more, offering lots of replayability.

    Your character is Spetsnaz trooper completly customizeable apperance wise, allowing you to create your own unique avatar.

    Your Co-Op character has an inventory (identical to the single player) which you can fill up during your playing time. Your single player inventory also transitions to the Co-Op which is both a blessing and a curse. The health-packs you found in the Aral Sea might be more useful in Bangkok, but when you go back to the Aral Sea they'll be be missing...

    It isn't a thread for him to really post content in at all. It's just so people can talk about the mod. and if dev members decide on being a little nice and post W.I.P content whats so bad about that? I have known JLea for quite a while to, I don't think he will be as mad as you think.

    The main reason for this thread is so people on FP can talk about the mod and discuss it. Making this thread does require any of the team members or JLea to post any content at all.


    EDIT:

    Didn't see that JLea requested the thread to be closed, was just looking through the event log of figuring out why i have gold member and saw that it was closed "Requested by JLea" My bad. I don't bother checking event log.. uhmm It is up to JLea though if he wants th is one closed. because that other one, was pretty much filled with crap.

    Even if he has content that hes not showing, or content that he has shown, this thread is basically for the mod. Not on content being released and all that. It is so people can talk about Ivans Secrets.

    The last thread didn't have content, so it ended up with stupid discussions on irrelevant things.

    Well, I cant really see the problem of it if we just discuss/share opinions and suggestions on it. Its not like the devs HAVE TO post new media. We'll just keep this as a thread to talk about it.

    The only real reason not to want one is if the mod is getting shut down.

    Did you not read any of the stuff I wrote after OP? I have already said that I didn't see it. Before writing something up, make sure you actually know whats going on.




    Yeah, it was my bad. Didn't see that he requested it to be closed.

    To be honest what I saw was a lot of great constructive criticism and a fantastic source of advice. If I was making a mod, in fact if I was doing anything creative, I would love as much input as these guys provided.
