Art mods, Alt Mods, or whatever you call them are changing the way we think about modding. With me today is Robert Yang, one of the leaders in this revolution.

Robert Yang and I discuss them and their impact.

This recording was originally made for Podcast 17, but due to some scheduling issues we decided to post it here.

City 21

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Starting in an apartment building you need to make your way through City 21 until you reach the port.

Of course, along the way you are attacked by numerous Combine enemies.

Your only hope is a fishing boat.

Can you make it there alive?

Breakout by Benny Blanco

for Half-Life

Starting in a small lab, you need to find your way out of a section of Black Mesa.

There are plenty of enemies and obstacles in your way.

Take a good look around, as you may find some hidden caches.

Cry of Fear

for Half-Life

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers.

Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear, which makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head.

Where do “they” come from? What has happened? Are you just turning insane?

Poll Question 266 – Would you not play a mod if you knew it had stolen content?

I found a mod on ModDB yesterday and a few reviewers were saying that it had stolen content. I am now in a quandary: I want PP to have everything single SP mod available but I don’t want to post something that steals content from other mod makers.

To be honest, if modders steal stuff from retail games, I don’t mind too much, but if it is from other modders, that seems a little unfair, although I accept there’s no real difference.

Break at Work

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Take a stroll through Black Mesa, do Dr. Arne Magnusson a favour and then take a ride on the transit system – that is if you can get it working!

But wait! There’s a little detour you have to make before you can continue.

Good Luck.

Poll Question 265 – Do you keep mods until you are in the right mood for them?

Sounds pretty obvious, doesn’t it? But I wonder if players put certain mods to one side until “they are in the mood“.

I certainly have to be in the mood for difficult Portal mods, I just can’t play unless I am in the right frame of mind.

But that’s about it for me, everything else I just play when I need to play it.

I just play everything as it’s released, assuming I have the time.

What about you?

Quick note: I’ve been pretty ill this week and spent all day in bed yesterday and plan to do the same Saturday and Sunday. This is the only update the site will have for at least 3 days, maybe more. Sorry!
