The artifact is a small mod project I've been working with. It's almost done now, just some tweaking and voice acting left.

Nice effects! How did you code that? It seems defeating monsters are much easier now though.

that is pwnage!

If the player dies while mind controlling, as in, the NPC whom has fallen under gordon's mind power dies, does gordon?

All i can say is that you better come up with awsome puzzles. While playing as a barney, do you have high security access?

Can you mind control to someonewhere when your already mind controlling someone?

well it does raise questions, 'tis good.

I like the textures in the first screenshots! wink-wink - ;)

The mind control thing reminds me of the Spirit walk in Prey. They had some basic but interesting puzzles with that.

Yes.

You'll be able to use buttons and consoles you weren't able to use before, yes.

Nope, there is a cooldown for balance.

please say you can take over an apache, that'd rock harder than Nihlanth.

A tentacle, barnacle, or even a gargantua would be way too damn fun for your own good.

Another question, the enemies are friendly until provoked when you mind control, right? so you can sneak through.

Also, what if you kill a person you are supposed to control to get something, are you stuck or do you MC a headcrab and crawl through the vents.

so many possibilities, i would develop this in completely so you can MC anything. even snarks.

I think it would be more directed along the lines of human control would it not?

That would make you too overpowerful if you controlled anything else.

I could see some interesting puzzles. You could control a headcrab through vents or toxic areas and open up the way for Gordon, etc. There was this gamecube game called geist, it had loads of these puzzles but it had low fps :/

That.was.fucking.awesome.

The possibilities of mind-control puzzles are endless. Definately looking forward to more from this.

You'll be able to control some aliens, like the zombie and the snark.

The zombie is very tough, and the snark is fast and can run trough vents and stuff, but it will explode after 20 seconds.

Very clever that you did this...Just a crit but is it possible to make switching minds use more screen effects and so on to make it even more impressive? It just seems switching in that trailer felt a little plain aesthetically but none-the-less great work.

Actually, Rimrook's clever zoom effect he used in 6D could easily be modified to make a cool MC effect, unless he would strike me down if I use it?

And yes, you throw snarks and MC them wink-wink - ;)

Make a tutorial out of it and let us play with possibilities! Or you can just release the source.
Maybe this is worth a compo: Design a map and make as much use of this new feature as you can.


Nice!

Yeah you can use the zoomy warp effect all you want. its just messing with the FOV and flipping through a series of cvar values for it. but be sure to keep a fade of some sort to blend the transition between leaving gordon and arriving in the target. Also, you might not want to warp the screen as much as I do for 6D, weapon models will look floaty and such.

Play with it. nuts - :nuts: heart - :heart:

Muzzle, well there will be an fgd and similar stuff later.

The warp turned out pretty nicely, actually.

Video showing that and other new stuff, like damage decals, yay

AMAZING!
I love the way you see Gordon's glasses, as you MC back.
The decals pwn, although I think, that the zombie movement speed should be a wee bit slower.

Superb work. smile - :)

I know it's still being made but the blood decals should look more realistic. But altogether, at this stage, IT LOOKS REALLY SWEET!!! grin - :D

I thought you would warp it more. either way, i found a way around the crapped up weapons when you increase the FOV ammount. There is a command draw_viewmodels 0 which will turn off the weapon model, then switch it to 1 (on) after the effect and it looks fine, if you realy want to, play the draw animation after it.

Keep it up! glad - :glad: heart - :heart: glad - :glad: heart - :heart:
