I wanted to give an idea...

I'm still taking all ideas in. So feel free.  ;)

Well, I was thinking that you could be a spy from Aperture Science. You were hired as a scientist's assistant, and you have to kill a bunch of people without setting of any alarms. Then you steal the item, when the Resonance Cascade happens.

You can decide what happens next.

It's an interesting idea, although I've decided on either a Black Operative, a soldier, or an alien of sorts. Most likely a Black Operative.
Thanks though. I appreciate the input.

Thoughts are still welcome though.

I disagree with having no puzzles. Without puzzles the game would simply be "Monster pops up. Bang. Monster's dead. More monsters appear. Bang bang bang. Now they're dead." over and over again, which gets incessantly dull. Even Half-Life had puzzles.

Well of course you need puzzles!  I just meant I don't want to see Key-hunting in an FPS which doesn't have overview maps to support such gameplay.

Dark Truths had all the stuff you said.
Is that the one which got cancelled?  I remember years ago seeing a promising looking Black Ops mod, which sadly was never seen again.

I once had the idea for a mod where you played as an alien controller, where you could press the use key on an alien and 'possess' it. Would take a bit more coding than most mods though.

Yeah, it was cancelled, but i think the source code was released. Not sure about the other files

I disagree. I don't like when someone makes something superspy-like. I'd prefer some normal guy working there.

Perhaps facility visitors, administration, the above ground public sector.Especially the post-invasion chapter of black mesa.
There is a mod called "Visitors" where you play as Alan Green, Black Mesa lawyer.

Spawn, I'm just curious, why is this information needed for you? Why do you need to know our opinions? Are you making a mod?

Yeah, I was thinking about starting up a mod to do in my spare time. Nothing to ambitious and thought, why not (yet) another visit to Black Mesa. I was interested in seeing what perspectives people were interested in.

Further thanks guys. I'm still keen on the Black Op idea myself, but I'm still open to ideas. Taking everything into consideration.

Here's something I know -nobody- has ever done before. (99% sure.)

Some random soldier during the 7 Hour War. :P

Just some random US Marine (Or German, Russian, British, w/e) + how he progresses after his unit gets decimated.

Opinions?

Hmmm... I actually like that. I'll stick to Black Mesa for now, but I will keep this one up front, should anything happen to my original plan.
Thanks very much.

Wtf, there's -nothing- on that war. Literally. There's some references to it, but.. otherwise. Nothin.

Besides, you wouldn't be fighting Combine Soldiers + Elites, those came -after- the war. We're talkin about Combine Synths, xen beings, baby! Not Combine Elites toting OSPIRs + SPAS12 shotguns.

Perhaps at some point you'd get your hands on an Abrams? :D :D :D

Btw this monster look so good. And his history is a mystery.
I love mods what give some experience with monsters. You can make a good action mod with blood and gore or a scary mod with deadly atmosphere.
