    Hey guys. I know I used to shamelessly pimp Platoon19, but now it's time for

    <insert drum roll>

    Colony8. A mod for Half Life 2 (when it comes out) brought to you so far by Nova, Goat and myself. Visit www.painted-black.com/c8 for more info. Email myself with any queries or anything at nikoomba@painted-black.com and generally wet your pants with excitement. NOW!

    *Begins to Make teh Wetness (but I'm not wearing any pants)* Looks pretty cool.

    But I think the part that has me most excited is this part from the website's Features list.

    WEE!

    We all know the best mod for Half Life 2 will be CS2.

    Get some good coder tallent ASAP, don't just model weapons and then release screenshots of the models. Make sure you get a decent coder that can be depended upon.

    CS2 will, by definition, invariably blow all other HL2 mods out of the water. Personally I'm looking forward to it.

    Looks like a fun mod, but lets hope it doesn't share the same fate as P19

    What would be funny is if CS2 was exactly like INF. Anyway, I'm curious how you can start work on a mod without the game to mod for? Weird.

    Sounds fun guys. Keep me informed. :p


    Jaymian : well, if one day you realize that a game is a bit more than code, maps and models, you'll understand that all the initial "design" part does NOT need the engine to be done. Once the engine ships in, the team can always adjust its design plans if something that was excpected finally isn't supported or the contrary.

    Thanks for the interest.

    Rogue Leader: Shut thine yapeth.

    Snakebite: Easier said then done but we realise that. If anyone knows anyone, please point them in our direction.

    Scuddie: We learned a lot about our process from P19, I'm sure we'll do better this time.

    Jaymian: What Max said. :)

    Interesting...so, are there iron sights on any of the weapons, or do they all have electro-optical (i.e Aimpoints, Reflex sights) as standard?

    The weapons used by the rebels will all be virtually home made, so iron sights are a definate. As far as the military/police weapons there will be various systems in place (Goat is developing some really good weapon ideas) but we won't have any auto-tracking type crap. You will need to aim your weapon at least.

    You know the deflector sights in aircraft? yeah, now put that on a gun, give it an infrared range finder and make it adjust for bullet drop, kinda like a gyroscopic sight, but digital obviously, there you go, tracking computers are fun!

    The Germans did that way back in WWII with the Flakvisier 38, predictor and everything driving by clockwork :F

    Thanks Goat...incidentally, will there be EMP style weapons? I'm asking as if that's the case, it looks like firearms with backup iron sights (or fibre-optic powered devices like the Reflex/ACOG of today) will be flavour of the month ;)
