Who’s been watching/following this mod, then? http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-core
I recently watched both Q&A’s, in which one of the developers mentioned that they took special care to ‘dickproof’ the mod, going on to say that what that basically means is they made sure you won’t be able to ‘skip chunks of levels’ at a time.
Well, we’ll see about that (I wonder if they actually researched speedrunning tactics in HL, if they didn’t, I’m sure there will be some triggerdelays available to exploit)
I’m hoping this mod has potential for speedrunning, or at least leaves the movement mechanics/physics unaltered/hardly modified.
They did mention briefly that they’d tried to keep the mechanics the same as classic HL, although they didn’t seem 100% able to say that they didn’t make at least some modifications.
Either way, this mod looks really good IMO.
