Fixed, I've yet to see one hopeful release. lol

Anyone here remember Azure Stand? It was supposed to take place during the 7 Hour War. Never got off the ground, damn shame.

Anyway, even if there really is one or two mods about 7hour war, they are so infamous, that only Frostbite remembers them :D
So it's not so bad idea to develop better one.

It was cancelled. DAV's still working on Source remake of Sub (which is something I'm looking forward to).

Is he actually working on it or is it just something he said he was doing about 2 years ago and no one's heard from him since?
How's he going to do it anyway? Wouldn't he need grunt and other Half-Life monster AI?

He's still working on it (you can see his posts on hlcoders). I think there'll be combine soldiers instead of grunts.

If you're going to do a mod about the Seven Hours War, you could do it from the Combine point of view. I was thinking it could be good to play as one of the species the Combine had enslaved prior to invading Earth (some sort of human-sized or slightly bigger synth?) seeing as there obviously wouldn't be Combine Soldiers as we know them now, as they're humans with altered minds and bodies.

Actually, I was working on the mod about portal storm, 7 hour war and aftermathes. It had some cool (yeah, thosw maps were made by me, but I still think it was cool) maps with normal if not bad architecture but interesting scripts. It was Spirit based. I have some of its maps and even one trailer with atomic explosion above black mesa. Spawn, if you seriously want to create this mod, I can share it.

Does anyone know (official sources, not just speculation) how long after the Black Mesa incident the portal storms were supposed to have started?

No, the portal storms started 2004, 4 years after the Resonance Cascade.

Atleast that's what a timeline says.

Why do you think it's true? It's not official stuff.

If you mean this: http://members.shaw.ca/halflifestory/timeline.htm, virtually all of it is wrong. Valve have said on many occasions that the Combine were not on Xen prior to Half-Life. In Half-Life it seems a lot more like the Xen creatures were accidentally teleported to Earth, not them seeing the Reasonance Cascade as an "escape route". The person who wrote it also suggests that Dr Breen escaped along with an Advisor. He clearly is supposed to have died, as he was right in the centre of the explosion that destroyed the Combine Dark Energy reactor and fell, as Alyx indicated at the start of Episode 1.
