Black Mesa: Blueshift


#841

Last update on tripmine site is dated 03-26-2014 r… so ?


#842

Tripmine site? Isn’t this thread about “BM Insecurity” mod? Because Tripmine’s mod is “Guard duty” (and also Operation BM)


#843

Correct.
Also, as a member of Tripmine, Guard Duty isn’t dead.


#844

So this isn`t same mod as guard duty ?


#845

It isn’t. This mod is meant to be for Black Mesa.


#846

No. BM Insecurity and Guard Duty are two different mods. GD is still in work alongside OPBM, whereas Insecurity seems dead.


#847

Insecurity is a Black Mesa fan mod/add-on handled by Skyms and I believe a 3D artist.
Guard Duty is a standalone independent game handled by Tripmine Studios. The goal of each is very similar but are completely different projects.

The creator is waiting on Retail last I heard. Not sure if he’s still moving forward with it or not though.


#849

I’m not dead lol and neither is this project.

I need to wait for Xen before I can finish it as that is basically the only section I have left to do.

I can’t promise it will be 100% polished once I port it to the retail version and I can’t promise that it will work 100% but I will get it there so help me.


#850

Ah, I knew I wasn’t crazy. Still looking forward to what you’ve created :smiley:


#851

FYI…test everything :wink: . Weird errors will pop up after the port. We had a ton.


#852

Blue Shift? Yes!!


#853

Hurray haha

It was buggy enough as it stands now let alone after I begin porting!

I imagine it will be better though because a lot of my maps were pushing the current build way too hard and i hate having to cull detail :frowning:


#854

I never played the original blue shift, but I look forward to your rendition of it, skyms. Good luck with all the bugs i’m sure will appear.


#855

I always thought you merged with Tripmine or something, since you both are working for a similar goal.


#856

Area portals are your best friend…


#857

Posted a shot over on my moddb http://www.moddb.com/mods/black-mesa-insecurity

Everyone thinks this project is dead when it is far from it!

Porting the mod over to retail is going well so far :slight_smile:

Have come across a few weird errors but nothing too crazy!


#858

Damn, looking fun!


#859

Will this still be made available for the original free version of the game? I hope so.

@skyms2663, why dont you split it into 2 releases: First one - full campaing right before sending player to Xen, and the second with Xen? Crowbar Interactive style[/size]
