    Today I've got a few updates from the Half-Life modding scene for you folks:
    <p>
    First, the Ukrainian team behind a PC port of Half-Life: Decay, a bonus by Gearbox for the PS2 version of Half-Life have finally released their mod, which is for the original Half-Life. Check out their website for downloads and more information.
    </p><p>
    Next, an update from the Decadence team, the third in their "State of Decadence" series, that details information on their HUD (or lack thereof) and their iterative development method. Head over to their newspost on ModDB.
    </p><p>
    Finally, Project Valkyrie has released an alpha version for the public, and Eternal Silence, Ham and Jam and Exterminatus all have released updates on their progress, resplendent with some beautiful media.
    </p>

    I highly recommmend playing Decay with a friend on the first playthrough, switching players is just awful.

    I hope someone makes a LD pack, I think I might give it a go if the files are not .pak'd.

    I would have hoped for a decent unarmed idle animation, sven-coop style, but meh.

    Extremely looking forward to play this with a mate.

    Why don't you activate your Half-Life CD key on Steam and download it through there? Or have you lost your CD key as well?

    LD... Low-Definition? As opposed to Blue-Shifts HD pack?

    Yes.

    I played HL1, OP4, BS, AS, POV, HOE and Svencoop all with the good old low-def models, I would expect no less from yet another official title.

    Nothing will beat the original barney and otis models, nothing.

    But oh well.

    I installed, Half-Life Decay and it's on my steam list. But everytime I open it, it doesn't respond =/
    Got it to work, just had to restart Steam (Der) Anywho, I can't get Colette to move at all. Anyone running into this problem?
    So I see I need to switch players, now I just need to figure that out >=|
