    (And don't say that only one nuclear warhead was able to completely obliterate Black Mesa; do you know just how fucking big Black Mesa was?
    Not to mention how far down the facility is underground and the fact that the warhead was detonated in a warehouse on the surface)
    The parking lot where was the nuke device is underground. Also, in the housing of the nuke, you can read in the instructions that the safe zone is more far of 55 Km. Enough for wipe out all the surface as well as the underground complex.

    Journalism, you are doing it wrong.

    Take a vague statement by one of the devs.
    Put a wild guess, for the date.
    Bam. Headline is finished to gain clicks.


    Readers believe it, because everything is true that stands on the internet.
    Readers get disappointed.
    Readers complain about development team behind the project.

    Huh, guess it's been a while since i've played Opposing Force.

    Still, 55 km was the recommended safe distance from the bomb.

    Though it was detonated partially underground and under Black Mesa's largest ordinance storage facility.


    Yeah, that definitely would have taken a good sized chunk out of Black Mesa and the area surrounding it.

    To be fair, as I understand it, the statement that the mod itself would release two weeks after the release of the soundtrack was not vague, and Hubicorn only retracted said statement when his post acknowledging but not refuting it was picked up by fansites ("This is why we can't have nice things" my arse; he knew the post would cause ears to prick up and was fishing for the attention). The only thing DSO Gaming seem to have faulted on is missing this memo -- that the mod will no longer be releasing soon after the soundtrack.

    On a scale from 0-6.9 and 7.1-10, how confident are you that the mod will be released within the next two years?

    No shit. This statement still stands. The mod comes out two weeks after the soundtrack is released. What they have done was, taking Joels reply "Which shouldn't be much longer" and interpret it as "release of the soundtrack is next week".

    Nope.

    Late edit: Well, maybe I'm being a tad too cynical with a flat-out "No", but "take anything said by someone other than the team leader, and done outside of the official announcement forum, with a giant grain of salt" (paraphrased, obviously) strikes me as nothing more than a manoeuvre to gain more wiggle room with "unofficial" statements/comments ultimately failing to come to fruition -- the release of the soundtrack signifying the imminent release of the mod itself being one of them.

    No one has refuted the "two weeks after" statement yet.
    They've just been denying that the soundtrack is coming out tomorrow.

    No, you're right, but we've been told to take it "with a large grain of salt", which isn't much better. :p

    Edit: Unless the statement was made in the official news forum? I poked around prior to posting earlier, but didn't find it.

    His grammar was just poor and he spelled some stuff wrong. I looked at it again and it looked horrible so I fixed/reworded it for the hell of it.

    The parking lot where the nuke device was is underground. Also, on the side of the nuke, you can read the instructions which state that the minimum distance required to be safe from the nuke's blast is 55 Km. Enough to wipe out all the surface as well as the underground complex.

    Will the mod be done in 19 days? Because I asked a dev once what percentage the mod is right now... it's 46% complete... he says that you guys get 3% done each day... so if my calculations are right... on May 6th the mod will be finished and the soundtrack released... 2 weeks after the mod comes out... right???? MATH DOESN'T LIE!

    Maybe they were lazy until they completed the MOD at 46%?

    I think it may be more because their way of estimating their mod's completion is flawed.

    AFAIK they never made any serious percentage estimations, if they actually replied 46% it's most likely a joke

    Edited:

    And I'm also p sure that 3% a day is a bullshit number, they wouldn't say that

    Iīm still learning english, thatīs why. Although it cant be forever an excuse.

    Also, 46% done? is not possible. The last time they said the progress done was around 80% (the last year i think).

    In short: There's no accurate estimate to when it will come out because there's always going to be things that need to be tweaked and if something breaks, there's no estimate to whether it will take an hour or a week to finish.

    It will be finished when it's finished.
