I was thinking this morning about all the new features that have ben introduced into Half-Life via maps and mods and thought that it may make an interesting projects for somebody. Don’t worry I’m not going to try and do it and then lose focus on the site.
To be perfectly honest I’m not exactly sure what type of effects should be or could be included. I suppose I am thinking of something similar to the Game Innovations Database.
For example, when was the first time temperature was used within the Half-Life universe? Was it in the game or a mod? I’m pretty sure I remember playing a mod where you entered a storage area and the temperature was below freezing. This forced the player to rush because his health level started to drop slowly.
Those are the types of things I am interested in reading about and there must be many, many similar things.
I would even be prepared to host the database if somebody was commited enough to creating it. Perhaps it could simply be a wiki where the HL community adds the details.
What do you think?
