PS2 Chargers
« on: April 27, 2010, 05:30:43 PM »

Hey, HL:E Team, are you still using the PS2 Chargers?

I think PS2 Chargers will be good in a Mod like "Decay", but not in HL:E.
I'm not a big fan of the PS2 Chargers. They were interesting when all the PS2
models were ported to PC, but now they are very old.

I think the chargers should be replaced with some new custom models.
If you need some inspiration, ask me! ;)

They are still being used, but they can easily be updated to a new model if someone wants to replace them.

If you need ideas, I could whip a concept up.

I'm very interested in your concept.
But I still have some models that I could use...

If someone is interested, I can upload 'em.

No, we're definitely not going to be using the PS2 charging stations as-is when HL:E is completed (2032?). Like Matt says, it's simple to swap the models out for newer ones, and we'll want to create something that closely follows the original Valve design, not Gearbox's PS2 versions.

Thank you for the answer A.I.
2032? Hey that's only 22 years to wait! *lol*

IMHO, gearbox didn't retain the same feel that valve did...

Yeah, we know. There is a very big difference between Valve's LD and Gearbox's HD models.
I think Gearbox wanted a more comic style look.
There is also another big difference between the PS2 and the DC models.
