Step back in to Black Mesa, in the labcoat of Dr. Eli Vance. This mod will have great new graphics, while still retaining the Black Mesa theme, and the Half-Life mood.

Go to www.moddb.com/mods/hypernova for the ModDB profile.

For the first post, I give you a remade Subtransit. Here's a screenshot:

It's still untextured, but I think I prefer texturing in the end. There's still a lot to add, but I feel that it's a good start.

It looks good and all, but I MUCH prefer the door over the pipes.

Can I help? I would like to work on the project, it would be good practice for mapping.

Step back in to Black Mesa
I stepped back from this thread. Sorry.

I know it looks pretty bad. I'm a lot better at modelling and coding than mapping, mainly because it takes me forever to do anything worthwhile, and I hate texturing.

Also, Dimbark, I already have enough mappers.

No, I am certainly not accusing your mapping skills. It's just that... I am pretty bored of seeing mods having a Black Mesa story again and again.

Where's the creativity?

On these forums I have been accused once of trying to make a cs_assault remake, a project I have abandoned long ago. What's the difference in trying to remake a story that revolves around the same Black Mesa everyone knows?
Why not invent a new kind of facility if you like so much scientific facilities?
I mean seriously guys, this is like Rebecca Black releases the Friday videoclip and then everyone decides to remake it using the other days of the week.

Now Archie and Urby will be pissed off at me :D.

That gives me an idea. The one company that envies both Black Mesa and Aperture makes something that will change the world forever, and only person can stop it: [insert witty name here]!!
When the world finds he wishes to stop it, his own administrator betrays him, and BOOM! Everything ends in a large explosion.

I have been inspiried.

It still implies Black Mesa and Aperture, kid. Those are story elements that will help shape your story but aren't created by you.

First of all, I want to bring to your attention what you are offering:
60 weapons (hard-coded maximum in HL1 is 32)
long gameplay(implies over 20 maps(not including MP). By comparison, opposing force has around 50-ish)
10 multiplayer modes (by comparison, Counter-strike has 4-5 w/o modding)
vehicles - this may require a crapload of coding. CS is known to have failed in that. I only know 3 HL mods that involved driving vehicles.

That will alot of work, for Eli and for you guys. I estimate it will take at least 5 years. If you have some kind of demo going then I would strongly encourage you to work on the mod, but at this point it's still in the womb.

Black Science.
I'm not sure if I should interpret this as racism or otherwise.

It's not racism if I refer to them as so. There's nothing bad about "Black Science", nothing racist about it.

How does racism tie to being bad? Racism is associating something to an entire race.

If I say all asians are smart, then it's racist, regardless of whether or not it's implying a negative tone towards a certain race.
And if you say 'Black science' it implies science done by black people is different from science conducted by white, asian or any other group, and is therefore racist.

True, but I think this stands out from the rest for one simple reason: Alyx Vance. You have to save her. It's a bigger thought than anything else. And trust me, I know it's going to be a job from hell. I've never given up on anything else, and definitely will put all my effort in to this. But I believe I can manage it. Also, about the limits, people have bypassed them in some areas - I see no reason why that should change here.

Also, I do have a team:
Johnny "manchow7" Pease - Music
James "Hedgepig23" Whale - Mapping
Trevor "X-LAyer2" Jamsey - Mapping
Cyrille "KillerZeta" - Rigger
Tirga "Sicka11" Markarian - Sound and Textures
Unknow5763 - Human Textures
Some of these guys have worked on huge projects, such as KillerZeta for Arrangement.

Basically, what I'm saying is that I know it CAN be done. And I will do it.

Good luck. And remember, HL2 takes place roughly 20 years before the Black Mesa Incident.

You mean after. And yes, I know that. I'm practicing my mapping a lot. That, besides texturing is the field I'm worst in. Anyways, thanks for the support!
