    Hi everyone. I would like to announce that I'm starting a new mod for halflife2 called HL2 GTA. Its going to be based on Grand theft auto style game play. And am looking for a good team to start this mod off. So im looking for currently.

    Web Side Designer (Must have other work to show what you can do)
    Concept Artist (Must have other work to show what you can do)
    Modelers 2x (Need to know how to use 3d studio max or milkshake )
    Skinner's 2x (Need to be able to show past work)
    Mapers 3x (Must have good hammer editor skill's)
    Coders 2x (must know c++ and have nolege or pass use of game or halflife coding)

    I have ran a few mod's before now and released some. and have finally got around to having some time to start another mod for halflife 2. this time I decided to go on the GTA style of mod. meaning allot of hard work for all departments. I'm aiming to make it a online gta game. and have already figured out how I can do most of the work. such as have people walking around. etc.. and how the money system can work. So if you are interested in this mod or you want to join this mod you can contact me via msn instant messenger or email to [email protected]

    ill have a web site (temp) and a irc channel set up in the next day or so as well. so ill update with information about that soon.

    Thanks all to all who are interested. and ill keep everyone posted here on how the mod progress.

    Ok.. today I been working on some simple things and have finished the glock/base ballbat and some street sign models. and got the street sign models ingame and on a map I have been working on. (this has all been done by me in one day) ahh here are a few screen shot's/renders of the models.

    [​IMG]

    I have to keep all the models quite low poly due to the sign's will be used over and over and hl2 does have its limit's due to the size of the maps that will be huge. a hole city in one map. so i need to keep Pollys down. ill remake the 30 sign soon it was just more of a test for me getting a model ingame due to I haven't done it befor. but I don't think that's a bad days work. a glock and a baseball bat done.. (accept skin both mapped) and started on the first city map and got a 30/40/50/giveway sign ingame. here are a few shots of the 30 sign ingame.

    [​IMG]

    Later on today ill be starting on the web site and getting the irc channel sorted out so ill post again with more information about that soon. We still need a full team. because its still just me.. mind its only been a day since I decided I have anoth time again to make another mod. So if you are interested please email me [email protected]. or just post on the forums.

    Thanks Jason

    Ok.. Its the end of day to of me working alone on this mod :( cuz no one has been that intrested in it. and so far i have got done the following:

    1 Car model finshed + skin
    2 Wepon models (Baceball bat/Glock)
    6 Prop for map's (Streetlight/Sign's)
    Put ingame Street Light/ Sign's
    Started on the first city map.
    Got a train that you can only drive on a track and max speed of 500 might change later.

    And thats about all i got done today. But here is a screen shot of the map.. its not very much yeh but ill soon make it grow after i got some other thing's done.

    [​IMG]

    I have played for tommorow to skin the baceball bat and the glock and model some arm/hand models and get them all ingame. replaceing the stun stick/mp5 ill work on the code later. Do some more of the map and make a few more props for the map's such as trafic lights etc. Hope to get some other things done as well such as starting on web site and fourms and irc channel.. was going to do that today but got carried away figering out hammer editor. due to im use to moding halflife 1 not 2. Also if you do wanna join and you can do anything on the first post you can contact me via email or via msn by [email protected]

    Thanks again Jason

    (Ill keep you all posted with more updates soon.) :thumbs:

    That is not a glock :)

    Glocks do not have external hammers. That to me looks like a SIG Suaer of some type...

    Would need some work, especially placement of furniture and the front ends fairly off, but it could be changed to be a p99 fairly easily. Seems closer to that than anything else.

    I'm not sure if that'd work out, but the idea seems cool enough. I just hope that the police will not have the same Artificial Stupidity as in GTA however.

    I have also skined the pistol.. but am going to tweak the skin abit more befor i release image's of that. i have started just now on some hand model's. and i have added some detail on to the map. and here is a pic of the model of the car rendered it still need's some work.. but this is just me mainly geting use to the way halflife 2 is built. because like i said im use to moding halflife 1 and halflife 2 is abit diffrent. and so far its all good :D. Well ill update with some more news abit latler. and that guy who said he could skin/model and do abit of code if you email me ill get back to you about it all. anyways here is render pic. (p.s. i ditched the audi a3 because it went wroung and made a 206 instead)

    Great mod so far for what is it? 2 days work? If I can get around to making a map of a part of a city for you I will send it over. Kepp it up and dont be discouraged most people only join a mod when there is something good to see that is already created and if you can get that car working I am in right away!

    Alright I am convinced. Try to get the car working please but I have started mapping a city block for the mod. I will post screenshots tomorrow. I think this could be a cool mod if it gets some more members. If you like the map then I would like to have the models in my map to make it more realistic. From there a video could be made to help recruit new members. I might be home all tomorrow to work on the map.

    I was considering posting a message to the effect of "There are loads of 'GTA' mods out there that have no work done on them... people aren't going to make your ripped-off mod for you" for the first reply.

    I'm glad I didn't now, as I'd have looked quite silly. Get a new name, though.

    I dont see why i would need to ask premistion from anyone to use gta as a name.. its not illegal to have something called gta >_> its not like the word is owned by a company with all they know i could mean something totaly diff.. :p so yeh.. i doput they will do anything. ow well day 4 .. better get started on more stuff.. and btw the name was the first thing that came in to my head :p not to bothed about the name of them mod.. could call it happy meal if i wanted lol :p i dont care.. if you guys can think of a better name tell me and il change it. Ok today im starting a new car model the corolla and geting that ingame and working.. so we have two diffrent type's of car ingame. then hopfully shizzle (a new member who has joined) might have done the hand model's. Im have given him a trial of making some hand model's so we will have to see how good his work is model/skin wise. Ahh well ill update a bit more later on what's going on cuz i got to go get a x-ray now.. because i might of broken my spine.. :p stupid motor bike crash.. so ill do some work later.

    w0w, i absolutely (spelling) love this idea, how would it play out though?

    i mean, would you be able to own property? would people be able to climb to "pimp daddy" status? would there be a ranking system for that? how would the money be worked out? could you hire other players on to do dirty work for you?e.g. to sabotage another players building? will the police be as dumbass as in gta? will it be possible to pick a character, or custom design one, like the sims for example?

    just a few questions :p

    keep up the good work m8

    The funny thing is I was talking to myself about this about 2 days ago. Recently my friends and I have been playing GTA III and in my opinion one of the better ones. While playing GTA III I was thinking how cool it would be to have this huge city in a HL2 setting.

    I might be willing to help out with this idea.

So look forward for that update.. then ill get car skins ingame and cars working better.. then player model.. then alpha team testing / video :D. ahh well only been 4 days what more could you exspect ;).
