Only thing that sucks is all the old image hosts people used in the past either died or deleted their stuff so the Map Battles pages are mostly lost.

I'm working as an environment artist right now too. I still get offers from people looking for others to make source maps or just wanting advice. There is almost nothing in the world that could bring me back into source, and even if there was I wouldn't even remember how to properly install their messed up SDK.

Still Source mapping days were definitely the best part of this career even now. Its hard to reproduce that magic in the real world.

Missing Information is still being developed. We're coming to Steam this year. I've given up on Source a couple of times, and maybe its time to move on.

So you're saying it's coming to Steam this year but that you're also thinking about giving it up? :?

I have the absolute fondest memories of this site and everyone in it. You've all been crazy helpful and I am grateful to have been a part of the community. I hope this community gets a boost from whatever new project Valve is working on!

Interlopers has been one of the top HL mapping sites for years. And the memories will remain. It's been good to all of us.

Wow.... 'lopers is still kicking...

Even though its dated, i still find myself coming back & looking through the tutorials for stuff I have forgotten how to do... I still dab in level design a little bit... Theres a handful of us left from the old STK clan that still get together weekly & play HL2DM or left 4 dead.

So is good to come here & see new posts every so often :)

It's coming to Steam this year. It'll be released as a minimum but I'm not entirely sure what the direction is after. We're working on Workshop support but things are progressing slowly.

Just to prove the point, even if I was never a core community member, last logged in Dec 7 2012... I'm still here.

jesus last time i logged in was 2014... although i was always lurking and dont often even use the source engine much anymore but still visit from time to time... will always love this place.. got me started on my journey to this god for saken addiction i have now.
This place may be dead.. but that doesnt mean it cant come back to life with some TLC and branching out to other/modern things.... i always loved mapcore but feel over the last couple of years it's main thing circulates around csgo (not a bad thing) but i jst cant bring myself around to...(iv tryd)...
"its not the place that makes the people its the people that make the place"
I hope this site doesnt go down..time does goes by and new generations come through but still alot of folk learn the fundementals from the source engine and this place has always been one of the best source engine resource site around..
apologize for the small rant and considering i never took part much within these forums (mostly lurked) i still got love for this place.

The site is dead, but the community is far from it.

Just visit the source community, half-life, source engine, tf2 / csgo themed discords and you'll see plenty of people still active.

It's coming to Steam this year. It'll be released as a minimum but I'm not entirely sure what the direction is after. We're working on Workshop support but things are progressing slowly.

I've recently been interested in fixing up the leak again but have no idea what anyone from the old team is doing now, there appears to be another russian leak fixup group that's making a lot of progress in terms of art/level assets but nobody's really doing code like Essel/Andy did.

One of the old members added me to Steam randomly and then proceeded to never message me ever which I think was Andy? Either way it would be cool to pick up where we left off since I'm no longer a teenager and actually know how to code a networked game properly and make professional level art assets.

That random team of Russians probably could have used your v35 decompiler and the model version switcher but I think they've pretty much ported all the v32-v36 stuff to v37 already.

I think one of the worst parts of working on the leak now would be porting the engine to work on something more recent than XP SP2.

Hey guys,

So... I've actually played Chells Legend - if anyone can remember ;) Might give it a shot to port it to portal 2 but do not expect anything soon.

Good to come here every now and then, while we're waiting for hl3 to drop. *kugh*

Wow, it's been a while since I've hung around these parts. Sad to see that the community is on its last legs but I was expecting the site to not even exist anymore if I'm honest - just had a random thought about the good times I used to have here and thought I'd give it a check. Glad to hear that people have moved on into the industry.

I've been a Web Developer now for about 6 years. A part of me still wishes I got into the gaming industry but I've heard a few of my friends say that working in it sort of ruins the fun a bit, but who knows.
We're squatting in a system that consistently stalls
