Water Released

Postby Mess on Sun Nov 13, 2011 3:50 pm

Au-Heppa and the HLSS mod team have released their latest project, Water.

Water is a third-person puzzle-solving game where you play as a Mermaid. It's certainly one of the more different mods released and is well worth a look.

some people i have talked to hold reservations about this because it is such a departure from a half-life story. but this is actually a pretty amazing adventure puzzle mod. i highly recommend it.

I agree with Joe, it's rare to find a mod that's tries to be deep, profound and original, and actually succeeds.

I realise this isn't really the greatest place to post this but could someone give me a bit of direction for one of the guards in the area that needs three keys?
Highlight to read:
I have a guard who has a key. A locked door that I cannot seemingly open or get him to open. And a guy who can move a bunch of signs and boxes. The guard can be directed by the signs if I turn the water valve to make him start his routine. What do?

Took me a while to figure that one out, it's a lot more fun figuring it out yourself though. Nevertheless:

You can use the other dude to place the signs to dictate his movements.

Great mod, managed to find a bug thought:
Highlight to read:
If you jump up on something, so you get the "press space to get up" your air is restored, so if you get up on, let's say the stairs where the harp is, you can have infinite air, nothing that matters but just wanted to let you know :)

I tried that shadowmancer but he just said "Whoops, dead end." and I assumed there must be a different solution. Ahh the frustration of finding out you knew the solution but the game chose not to accept it.

I'm quite surprised you can't do it, I quit that one and did the other two keys first, came back and noticed the signs and though they would direct the guard. This is a terrible drawing of how I set them up, make sure the sign is facing the direction he is walking so he sees them.

This is a great mod, just that first part waking up in the cave and moving was amazing. Au-Heppa has some serious coding skills. And all the small variations of things to do, there is always something different. I love it.

What's next, Air? :-D

EDIT: Also I find it funny that you have to save FISHpeople from drowning.

That must be some kind of bug since there's no stop sings there.

Any mod that have console commands for how much the boobs should move deserves an award.

Fantastic mod. Loved it but have two questions.

Any particular reason why the intro isn't auto played? Or at least played in sections before the user has to take action. It wasn't much fun to have to press a button 50 times just to continue hearing the story.

When you take over other characters how come you didn't go with wasd movement? Water can move easily like this on land and these sections were slightly difficult to move around.
