Title: Black Mesa media release Part 2
Post by: snake-4c-merc on December 17, 2006, 03:31:10 PM

This media release includes some new shots of the MP5, the bullsquid, Gargantua, Houndeye (plus some animations), and more.
On the news page, a new track has been inserted. Good work Joel!

Here are 2 screenshots of some of the new media.

zOMG! The Test Chamber is like a barrel of orange sex! errr...okay, that didn't sound quite right.

Still, it looks sweet.

And the houndeye aimation is prime, I think that last segment has it limping from an injury. Man, if they have limping houndeyes I don't think I'll be able to bring myself to kill them...

Are real Glocks that big? The one in the screenshot looks freaking huge... Might be that it just seems so big because of low viewmodel_fov.
Also it seems that the shotgun uses default HL2 animations :(.

The test chamber looks orgasmic. If I was a test chamber, I'd hit that.

Also: (http://www.blackmesasource.com/media/MP5_ingame.jpg) - I like.

Release Alpha; NOW

Why would you want to play an alpha version? Might wanna rethink that one.

Oh and on the grunt render, it's labeled as "high-poly". Like, it's probably not what you will see ingame.

I've been waiting for part 2 of their media release.  Looks absolutely stellar, and they are sticking with the original look of the game... just x 1k the detail.

Awesome.

Very true... I would like it to be smoother in a lot of the areas... But we will see how it is ingame...

a lower poly one will probably be done, then the high poly one should be mapped the exact same and used as bake lighting/ normal maps

Yeah, the MP5 doesn't even resemble the gun, it's as if they took bits and pieces of SiN Episodes's shotgun and put a grenade launcher under it.

The second screenshot from inbound reminds me more of a subway station or airport than the Black Mesa transit system.

The team said they wanted some artistic license to reflect the fact that its set in the future.
I hope they make this bit less annoying - in HL the whole timing was really tight, like a Doom "puzzle".

The problem is HL is not set in the future.

It is - probably 2010?  That's why there are Ospreys (experimental still), PCVs, and even an HEV suit even!
Just pointing out, don't want to argue. You could shout "free ice cream!" and I would just wouldn't rise to the temptation! :P

And the Gargantua skin sort looks like an Elephants does: thick, dry and cracked. And since it has flamethrowers in its arms I think that must be be the intention.

Also is it me or does the floor in one Anomolous Materials shot look like lego?

Agreed. Starting a Resonance Cascade would be a small price to pay to step into that Test Chamber. And CaptainVonGonzo, I think it looks like Lego too, but it is similar to the tiles we have here. But why Black Mesa would use such a bumpy surface is beyond me.

It says 200X in the manual, so it can't be 2010 and remember Black Mesa is a very old facility.

I'd go along with 2000, it's a round number.

Yeah it's set in 2005. And remember, the military still use equipment from WW2, refurbished and outfitted B-52s, Battleships, and plenty of buildings that are old are still used...

Hell my old house was 75 years old... Damn place was creepy as fuck... :(

Can;t wait to get a hold on BMS, especially now that i will be able to play it :P

The HEV is stab resistant and has a popup helmet, he can just command the HEV to slash his face off
