Category: GoldSrc Mods
Pretty impressive news week! We had Valve and TF’s 15th anniversaries, and the release of the long-awaited Part Two of the Escape from City 17 series. We could have also had CS:GO’s gameplay reveal – but due to some nasty WordPress issues that kept me from writing or posting, I’ve decided to release this Roundup first, then that particular article. Sorry, guys!
Phillip is doing a number of podcasts centered around his 100 Summer Days of Nostalgia event. This is the second episode of this podcast series. In it, Phillip and Don AKA Unq, discuss the 100SDoN releases 21 through 40, and chat about a number of modding and HL topics as well. The episode lasts an hour, so be sure to check it out.
You should also follow the 100 Summer Days of Nostalgia event itself, which aims to show a new Half-Life 1 map or mod every day, for 100 summer days. 48 mods have been showed off thus far, including Case Closed, the Xeno Project series and Todesangst, so the event is nearly halfway through.
When it ends on the 8th of September, the top 5 registered reviewers who submitted their recommendations to these mods will be entered into a grand prize draw. The winner will walk away with a future copy of the next Half-Life title, or a substitute game if he or she prefers. If you’ve got a copy of Half-Life 1, then you have no excuse not to participate!
If you’re a Source modder, odds are you’ve probably been to the Valve Developer Community more than once. The place is chock-full with great information, and while the SDK may not be as great as it used to be, the VDC is almost certainly just as excellent as it’s always been, thanks to its community of users and editors.
It’s just been given a makeover as part of a fairly significant site upgrade.
