Let me get straight to the point – I am leaving the site, the Half-Life community and gaming.
I have been running this site since September 2003 and have been heavily involved with the HL community since around 2005.
It’s time for me to move on and do other things. I am disappointed I never “finished” the site, but I really need to change my focus.
I would love to think that I will create some GoldSource maps/mods, but I think it highly unlikely.
I would like to thank everybody who has helped me over the years, and there are a lot of people, too many to mention them all by name.
Don AKA Unq will be taking over the site, BUT it will be more or less in maintenance mode. This means that Don will moderate the comments, add certain/major releases and update some posts, specifically the Villes with missing screenshots.
Don has a message below.
There are still some things to discuss and decide but effectively this is my last post and I will withdraw completely. I won’t check the comments, I won’t be posting new videos on the RTSL YouTube channel or tweeting on the RTSL account, although I may continue tweeting elsewhere.
I wish everybody a bright and creative future.
I hope you recognize me from assisting with the RTSL site and events over the last 7 or so years, particularly the Classic of the Month streams. I don’t intend to take over the site and make it my own; I simply want to maintain it as the awesome single player Half-Life site that Phillip built over the last 15 years.
So don’t expect too much to change. As Phillip said, I aim to post major releases and do some fixing up here and there.
There may or may not be more Ville challenges in the future. There definitely won’t be anything like the Hammer/Lambda Cups we’ve had over the last 3 years.
As this transition takes place, I hope you all join me in saying a heartfelt “Thank You” to Phillip for his hard work, vision, and his support of the Half-Life community over the years. And best of luck to him in his future endeavors.
And thank you all for being a part of the RTSL community – you’re why we’re doing this!
