A fan made, unofficial expansion for the famous Valve game Half-Life 2
Half-Life 2 just got an unofficial expansion from one of its fans and it is being called Transmissions ? Element 120.
Transmissions ? Element 120 is a free add-on that you can install to your vanilla Half-Life: Episode 2 game. The fan made expansion is now on Steam?Greenlight status.
If you really want to try out this game, according to dailydot, you must first have Source SDK Base 2007 installed on your system. This software is being used for developing mods for Valve?s Source Game engine. So without this, you may not be able to run the expansion on your computer.
Not just that though, as stated on their Steam page, the developers did also mention that ?you will need a desktop PC no older than 2 years. Most laptops, including new ones, will most likely not be capable of running the game.? Luckily the makers of this expansion, Transmissions ? Element 120, are looking for a way on fixing this by working on some graphics options.
Half-Life 2: Transmissions ? Element 120 new added features, as posted on their Steam page.
- Enhanced dynamic lighting
- Integrated Source Shader Editor 0.5 for enhanced post processing & lighting
- Improved support for complex physics structure
- Support for super massive physics objects
- Pre-processed AO
- Improved AI and group behavior on multiple AI types
- A brand new weapon that you can use to prevent taking damage from large falls or when you want to jump from one building to another.
The settings of this expansion takes place after the events of Half-Life 2: Episode 2, so maybe you can think of it as a brand new installment for the Half-Life game.
Sadly though, this is the only closest thing we can get for a new Half-Life installment. There?s still no news whether Valve is making another episode for the Half-Life game or maybe give out to the fans? long wish for Half-Life 3.
