Another polar question I’m afraid! Would you be interested in playing a Half-Life 2 Mod where you only played 95% of the time in the vehicles? Would you get bored, or do you love driving? Time to vote:
Do You Want A Driving Only Mod for HL2?
It would need to be coded to ensure the player doesn’t just jump or but imagine a mod where the players starts on foot and has a short but intense fight to reach one of the HL2 vehicles. Once they are in they play the rest of the mod within the vehicle.
Well, I say the rest of the mod but in fact at various intervals the player has to stop and eith have another short fight or a puzzle. At this point they need to change vehicles.
Here are a few more ideas for you to ponder:
The player is on a very large lap. Each lap would take approximately 10 m minutes to complete. After passing the start point the number of enemies and other difficulty settings increases. Not by a large amount but enough to notice. As the player passes the start point, their health could be restored or some other benefit. In the top corner is a counter, the player attempts to go around as many times as possible before they die.
One feature that would be really beneficial would be more vehicles. perhaps one of the Combine tanks, or one of the lorries/trucks seen in the game. Even A copter would be cool. Of course each vehicle should have its own characteristics; strength, speed, armor etc.
The mod would feature clearly defined sections and the player would need to pass each section with all the vehicles before they could continue.
It would also be cool if there were sections that required some very accurate driving. Perhaps gates that we only just wide enough for the vehicles to pass and the player has to drive through at maximum speed, maybe even more jumps. Perhaps a jumping puzzle section!
Perhaps this would be a boring mod to player and maybe it would be really hard to make great maps for. However, I’ve yet to see one, so I’d at least like to try it before I say the idea is stupid.
Maybe it would be hard to create enough variety. That might not be important for the players who love driving. This would probably be a niche mod.
Do you have any ideas for a Driving Only Mod?
