    Hey guy's, I don't have much time but I would like to let everyone know that I' am still alive and kicking. I recently lost my internet connection and am trying to get it back; funds are limited around here. The mod is still alive; so alive in fact that I'm spending my offline time building world objects for mappers to use. Everything from old cars to bridges and vegetation will be available for mappers.

    I'm truly sorry for not coming on sooner, but when you live in a small town it's hard to find an internet source.

    Tactical Dropshot Concept

    [​IMG]

    Canister is fed into the rear of the shotgun, pump and fire. G36-like aiming system. I was thinking of some sort of Halo assault rifle type ammo counter in the gap above the trigger.

    Heya fellas,

    Well here I' am sitting at the library using their computers -- I still haven't hooked up my internet, so I will be using these computers for the time being every now and again until I can get DSL from a new ISP.

    Murray_H thanks for your continued work on the Hostile Freedom project, it is very much appreciated. I myself have been working and reworking the concept. I have applied some new material to the universe, namely the use of Mechnines (Mech9's) which are machines developed by the Stygian hostiles to combat the Opanara Marine Corporation's tank's and artillery. More on this when I have more time. 15 minute time limit here at the wonderful book palace! :)

    Until next time.

    Excellent, Murray_H and thanks Noodly for the continued support as well. To all the haters, we are still alive. My internet died on me and I'm trying to find a decent ISP to get back online.

    This small update was brought to you in part by, ACCESS - "When times are tough, count on ACCESS" - The defintive military command console. Available NOW

    heya Stitch, glad to see you're out and about. I'm in a similar prediciment, although rather than losing my net I lost the whole shebang (the computer) =P It's been down for about 3 weeks but hopefully I'll have it up again tomorrow. I think I'm going to start over again on that dropship, maybe play with the design a little. I really wanted to make that one just to familiarize myself with the software. But I do intend to keep dinking with things and I'll support this mod all the way, it really does sound like a great idea. I actually started skecthing a combat scene with some broken down buildings and a battle going on. If I ever finish it I'll stick it here =) Keep up the good work -Noodly

    Greetings,

    I' am still alive Nostramadus -- very much so. I'm at my cousin's at the moment using his broadband internet -- downloading a bunch of stuff :) .

    The game is still in development, nothing has stopped. Hostile Freedom lives on! Anyway, I'm just dropping a quick message here since I had some time to browse these forums. Headiin' to the Casino right now so this post is small and limited.

    Talk to you guy's later -- I hope I can get MY internet going soon.

    EMP Grenade for the marines, press the button in the middle, the lines on the corners light up (purple/blue).



    [​IMG]

    Iron Signal for the marines, only thing different about this from a normal gun is that you pull the grip forward to release the lock on the clip, pull the clip out and put a new one in, and then pull the grip back to lock into place (the clip being above the trigger)

    "FIRE!"

    That is all you can hear in one Opanara drop ship. The fire from a destroyed rotar, forced it's way through an air shaft and licked the interior of the ship, killing three marines. The remaining eight fought the blaze with whatever they can find and managed to distinguish it a few minutes later. The damaged that was left behind was permanent physically and mentally. The captain of the Hunters Unit was brutally charred behind recognition. His remains would be brought back home once the mission was over, for a proper burial.

    Echo Rabbit, the leading drop ship in the Hammerstein raid were ordered to fly back and pick up the survivors of the fire. The Echo Rabbit shifted into reverse afterburner and were torn apart by enemy ground fire seconds later. Three direct hits with a rocket propelled grenade of some sort cracked the ship in half, killing or brutally injuring every one onboard. From the ground, units Jessica Six and Marvin Delta watched in horror as the Echo Rabbit exploded, sending burning and screaming marnes to the ground.

    To be continued...

    Greetings fellas, it be that sugary mutta****a, Stitch. My net is back and I'm ready to get this shit on the road. Ya' heard me? HA -- anyway; how is everything going guys? Everything on this end is pretty much OK. My hard drive failed on my the other day and everything I had written down or made was lost. But don't fret yet because everything is strored *points to his head* up here. I'm working as much as I can on rebuilding the lost material and content and it's coming along pretty good. I recieved my copy of 3DS 5 in the mail yesterday and my 3D art has almost begun. Since the the maps of Half Life 2 can be as large or bigger than te largest Battlefield: 1942, I think we will have to have a lot of static meshes in order to capture a sense of environment for Hostile Freedom.

    The physics system will play a major role in Hostile Freedom because of its ability to render entire buildings crumbling, which is essential for creating air raids and what not. I'm not worried about bump mapping at the moment so I won't go into that. Perhaps once the main game core is created and everything is in place, we might take a look at bump mapping.

    Hostile Freedom T-shirts will be given out to the developers of the team, so if you are apart of this project expect to be wearing a shirt with your game logo on it in the future. These will play a role in our advertising campaign. Wear them to LAN parties, malls and what not. The main logo will be located on the front with the URL on the back. Of course these will be paid for out of my pocket. Think of it as a thank you. :) And it's just cool to wear a shirt of a project you are working on. More details on this once I decide to place the order.

    To anyone still browsing this thread, we still need a few people. 3D artists mainly. An experienced programmer would be greatly appreciated as well. Contact me if you are interested.

    Until next time,

    Stitch, the emperors bitch.

    P.S - Excuse my typing. It may be funked as it's 3:30 in the am here.

    Hey guys, nice to hear that you're all back and ready to get going. I haven't touched the dropship in a little while, I've been working and now I may open up my own computer store so I'll be pretty busy. But I haven't forgotten about this mod and I still would like to do something for you all so if I make any more progress on the dropship I'll post it here or post on your forum. G'day! -Noodly

    I can help out with the character concept art (you always need that before starting the 3d models.)

    I've already got a couple of Opanara head concepts (front&side for each) and working on some Opanara character concepts. You'll have to bear with me, though, as I have to find a scanner.

    I could also help out with level design. Email me with 'HalfLife2' as the topic if you want something specific.

    Thank's for the help. Unforunately we need to see the concept art you have before we can accept your help. You understand, right? Perhaps whip something up with Photoshop?

    My skills with the mouse can only go so far :). Right now I've got three very nice Opanara head concepts. I'll scan those hopefully on monday and send 'em.
