Thanks for the critique! I have been wanting to do this mod for a long time. It is not going to be a remake, the reason that I did the remake of the first map, was to let people know that it is set in the Wolfverse, and to re-learn Worldcraft. (It's hammer now, I know.) I started this mod for Opposing Force, but a virus ate my hard drive and I got discouraged after losing all of my progress. A few years later, I just decided to start it again, and this time in the Source engine.
Here's what I want to do with it:
G-man sent you back in time to prevent the combine from changing history. They want to prevent B.J. from killing Hitler, so Hitler wins the war, as he would be a more powerful ally than Breen. You have to keep that from happening.
I wanted to have Nazi's fighting the Combine, but I cannot model, so I am just going to use the combine for now, and the HL2 models instead of a turkey leg or WWII healthkit.
The reason that I did the ending that way was
to tell you that it isn't going to be another Wolf rehash. That game is a masterpiece and should not be re-created, never, ever, and my future levels will have references, but I will not make another replica. I tried my best to make this level pay good homage to the first, and I hope I did a good job.
I will be using inspiration from all the Wolfenstein games, not just 3d, so you have nothing to worry about there. This is going to be an original story-line, and there will be open spaces, as well as claustrophobic spaces. I want it to be a thrilling game. I have big ambitions, and I have a lot to learn to figure everything out.
As for the lighting, I tried to pay homage to HL, and I got a HL logo, and used the color of orange for most of the lights. It is kinda dull and out of place most of the time, so I will look into using different colors, as well as brighten it up so players don't have to continuously use the flashlight.
It is intentional that players don't have the suit at start, if too many people say that it is annoying, than I will make it where they start with the suit. I just felt that starting off without it would be more realistic.
Also, how can you say that nothing is original? I made all the textures except the floor, ceiling, and fireplace textures!
. For now though, it is a representation of my skills, kind of. I use to make some fun maps that my friends and I would play at LAN parties. So, until I shake the rust off, I have a lot of improving to do.
Thanks again for the critique!
