    I am one of the mappers for this mod and have a small teaser update which consists of a shot of a corner building, a streetlight and the transitions between areaportal_window that we will use to increase framerates if windows are needed and they just look cool! So far there has been testing of vehicles and the alpha plays great if you havent downloaded it yet especially for a weeks work. I have a feeling newer versions of the alpha will be released when they are ready.

    As you can guess i got my hands full with code atm :p.. so not getin much done model / map wise but geting some boder line code done such as third person and team selection :p.

    Few sceen shots of car/3rd person working nothin really elce to update with other than saying im workin on the code at the moment :p. ow and the map is just the bace line of the map.. and the car model isnt skinned yet.

    Ow and as you can see we have a new member or two to be correct to the mod. One is a web designer who has allready sorter out the web site layout. Just need to get some $$ together to get a good domain. And DrDevin a mapper who has joined and has been working on a city map for some time allready for his trail :p as you can see he is good.

    Anyways... basicly all i wanted to post and say is that thing's are geting done still just not so much i can show. I really would like to have more people help out this mod. its kinda hard doing it all your self. (guess in away its good cuz all u can do is blame your self if something goes wroung ;)) But yeh if you can Skin/Texture/Animate/Code/Model we need you. :p and at the moment we really need Skiners/Coders. Reson for this is because i dont really enjoy coding or skinning why i allways set them back to last thing's i do. so i figer if i get some people who enjoy it and are willing to help out things around here will get done even faster than they are are the moment. so if you want to join you can contact me via msn or email to [email protected]. Ill get the domain soon for the site. and thanks for all who supported us so far. Ow and i desided. instead of having a stupid name GTA HL2 (that i agree is a stupid name:p but was a on the min idea) that i would ask the poster's here to make a name for this mod. So post away idea's of name's for this mod. and ill now ill explain how the mod will ataully work.

    Ok basicly there are 4 gang's in a map. all in cornor's of large city map's. there are npc's who will walk around the street's like normal people but then there will be in some area's gang members who will act just like they do in gta .. and fight you if you go near them. e.g. they will have a baceball bat run towards you try and kill you. these will be bot's. so basicly the idea is to kill these bot's and earn street cred. (guess that's the best way to put it) but as the other gang's leaders (Other player's) kill your gang members you wil also lose cred. So the idea is. To have a few players defend your HOOD lol :p and some go attack other gang's at the same time as driveing around.. and gernraly having fun. :) also i have added a new class to the code so now i got code ready for plane's :p. so ill add a plane model ingame soon. so then we got blame/car/boat working then all i got to work on is the motor bike. :p that wont be to hard. but yeh. the acsept is to earn credit to get better weponz/upgrade cars etc... and the wining gang as it would stand is one with most cred. (there will be a total of credit even if u spend it thats how it will work) so its like you have 1233 credit and u spend 1232 credit so u would have 1 credit left to spend. but it will still add up on score board as u have 1233 credit.. if that make's any sence.. :p well it will do when i sort it all out in code.. basicly the total of credit's you gang gets is the thing that determands who the wining team is.

    ow well i hope i got a little bit of the basic concept across. kidna hard to explain it all. Well ill post more update's soon. im planing on tomorrow to input a new grenade model / make the grenade model mabe a sword of some sort. and a sniper rifel. but yeh back to point of this post.

    If you are intrested in joining email me or speak to me on msn via [email protected]

    Have a good day all. (and dont forget post your idea's here as well, idea's will only make the mod better not worse so please speak up if you have some idea's)

    I've been following along with this mod, being both a huge GTA fan, and a half-life 2 fan, and so far, I love everything that you've made. I was considering joining the team earlier, but I haven't made up my mind yet. Rather than sit around thinking about it, I figured I'd post, to let you know ( I'll email you aswell, when I can be bothered :) ) that I would like to help in any way possible.

    I know how to map, and model - Don't have anything to show, since I format pretty much every second month, and it's been a while since I've had a chance to really do anything. If you are interested, I'll trial for you or something, and we'll see how we go :).

    I also thought for a while, and was able to come up with 1 possible name for the mod:
    "Grand Theft Valve"

    Pretty shit, but I'm llama :D

    Hope to hear from you.

    Thanks to everyone for your intrested and support in this mod. I had some guy yesterday come up to me saying its the most stupid idea in the world why would people play a gta style clone.. if they could by the real redeal. the fact is its not ataully a clone. its a diffrent type of game play its more gang war fare. a you dont allway's kill people you can kill the npcs (bots) that are other gang members to get respect etc. I would like to thank all who emailed my last night as well. and ill email you all back now. And if you do have any idea's for the mod dont forget to post them. :D ahh well best get on with some work. was working till 7am yesterday :p. and just woke up at 3pm lol. doh! so work now.. rest later :D.

    The team so far:

    Jason (Me) - Done everything ingame so far :p
    PSV - Web Master
    DrDevin - Mapper (He has posted screen shots of his work on page 4.)

    People in the trail.
    Luke - Mapper (he is making a trail map right now)
    Hoppers - Mapper
    Flip - Modler/Mapper

    So i figer if all the people who are on trail at the moment join the i deff wont need anymore mapper's. So really now we just need.

    Skinners/Coders/Animaters/Modelers

    I doubt that excuse would stand up in court*, somehow...

    "What do you mean 'I stole their game's name' ? It's a commonly used expression... And just because my game is about crime, stealing cars and running about in a city, it doesn't mean I'm stealing any ideas from their game which is about crime, stealing cars and running about in a city."

    [* - I'm not saying he'll get taken to court, but I'm pretty confident he'll get "Lawyerized" if he uses the name "Grand Theft Auto".]

    It's OK to be inspired by things, but it's not OK to rip them off.

    Looks good... but I'm with the nay-sayers who think you should change the name. The stargate mod just got C&D'd, and there's no reason it won't happen to you. I don't think any judge in 'court' would be moved by the "OMG IT'S JUST A WORD" defence (there is NO legal basis for that). It's just a word, but it's also a copyrighted game. Call it "Crime in Progress" or "Officer Down" or "Shots Fired" or any other term used to describe the situations depicted. You may also want to avoid using a screenshot of GTA in your website.

    GTA means grand theft auto. and that's a word that was first used by law officer's. It has no copy right law's over it by any company so i should be fine. :D i did my research!

    Well if you think that will stop you from getting c & c'd...

    Still get the damn GTA logo and pic off your site.

    Bentley Guest

    lol that aint their logo, its just a font that they used to make their logo, and its free to use by everyone, so I typed HL2 GTA in a free font.

    They even say it theirselves:
    http://www.gta-sanandreas.com/downloads/index.php

    "The font used for the San Andreas text on the logo. It's called Diploma.

    It does NOT say this font was created specially for a gta logo.
