That skybox kinda remind me of the Goldsrc version, actually. I agree the perspective looks a bit forced, though, but I don't really know why.
Back to the main thread, i´m the only one who is worried about what the devs will do with Xen? (maybe with the same excuse of boring/confuse gameplay, they cut a lot of it).
The other day I started up another playthrough of Half-Life and it got me wondering about if they'll make it so scientists and security guards can follow you up and down ladders and stuff. I'm one of those people who likes to have a big group of NPC's following me and it always saddens me when I have to leave them behind because of something as simple as a ladder.
I'd like to see them move over some of the bot features (such as the extremely fluid movement / animation / environment traversing) to NPCs.
Yah I always hated leaving behind NPCS to. I managed to prevent those 2 rebels in White Forest who fight some hunters from dieing and I was pretty peeved at not being able to bring those lads along with me.
Because of a ladder.
They should steal Call of Juarez's ladder code:
It's a gameplay wise decision to not let player gather too many NPCS.
They even had some problems with bugs probably built into the engine, which tried to prevent following allies from losing the player.
I like the HL1 NPC follow better, you can choose who you want to follow you and not have people automatically join you as soon as you are in their sight. But it's less realistic.
They don't use HL2's follow method and there is no 4 person limit in Black Mesa :)
Sorry if this is late, haven't seen this posted on moddb page, or the OP of this thread, or the last few pages...
These must be older renders, they're holding the old MP5 model.
Those are HECU? Where the hell are their huge backpacks?
Maybe they don't have them in BMS, or these ones were rendered without them.
they look like turtle assassins
How do you not know what the HECU guys look like? It's not even secret, and this picture was posted a few pages ago:
I remember how people bitched about them not having the HEV suit counterpart that you wear in Opposing Force.
Ah, and the balaclava soldiers arent there neither (they are incompatible with the face system).
