An extended look at Duke Nukem Half-Life (WARNING : IMAGE HEAVY)

Any plans for interactivity? Vending Machines are already available in Half-Life so they wouldn't be hard to replicate at all.

In point of fact they come as prefabs within Valve Hammer Editor in both functional and non functional states. :D


We'll be getting as much interactivity into the levels as we can.

I like how excited you guys seem to be about doing this, that's how you should feel when you're creating something. Keep it up.

It's part of the reloading mechanism. The RPG fires off a five round drum magazine. (Max carry of 20 rockets). You can see the RIP rocket pack on the previous page.

Dukematch Map Roster (W.I.P.).


In progress:
dn_holocaust : Bloodshot's remake of Hollywood Holocaust with some new twists and improvements.

dn_punchout : A boxing arena with a heavy weapon in the middle of the ring, and an explosive booby trap near the entrance. ( May integrate a map-specific folding chair for a melee weapon? ) ( Full name : "Duke's Knockout Dome.")
dn_coldcave : A series of interconnected caverns and caves with teleporters and alien resin to mix things up. I get the feeling this map will work out well with trip mines and pipe bombs! ( Full name : "Cold Cave Hives" )
dn_bombshell : Duke's favorite strip club as the epicenter of a huge battle arena. ( Already under construction as a single player portion of the game. ) ( Full name : "Bombshells - Hot Babes, Could Drinks." )
dn_militent : Part of a military base with lot's of map-based death machines in the lab area. ( Full name : "Military Intent" )


I'd like to get the number up to 8, but these are the focus for now.

Hand textures by BloodShot, over Gearbox's mesh for Opposing Force. Very happy with this, it'll mean weapon work should go up much faster.

Something of a mile stone. We have gotten the fists into the game. Posted Image


Also, for those of you who don't see the YouTube video description. The sample of music you hear there is from EDKR's latest Duke Nukem remix. If you haven't listened to it, you should, because it's quite awesome. Posted Image

The thread is a little too complex for me to follow so I'll just ask this: DNHL is restarting development?

Working on the Duke's Desert Eagle. Right now this is essentially just a simple recolor of the CS 1.6 Deagle. I'm hoping Bloodshot can go over it with his voodoo magic and make it look better. The UV map could definitely use some improvement on this old model.

Any plans for a real EGO system?

Depends on what you mean by "real." As of right now, in my head, there won't be able "health packs" as such in the game world. (With the exception of something that will actually be held in the weapon inventory, a portable med kit.) Instead health will be disguised as various items in the environment. From vending machines, to eating Duke Burgers/Chicken/Pizza/Drinking Beer, to looking at girlie and gun magazines, and getting cheers from babes. (This is a trick, covering up the monster_scientists syringe behavior in monster_babe). These sort of things will give you back piece meal health. 5 to 15 or so. So it'll encourage exploration. There may be some health gained from killing monsters. I haven't decided.


Team Updates:
  • Bloodshot has finished his work on the RPG. It's ready, essentially, to be rigged, animated, and put into the game. (Coding excluded, but i'm working on getting into that.). Soon, it'll be awesome to actually shoot at Bloodshot with it in our first test runs.
  • Cage has sent me his first set of textures. If you're familiar with his work you know that he delivers quality stuff. So, they look fantastic and I couldn't be happier with the direction they're going in.
  • Chris and I have been going back and forth on the Duke Nukem Theme. We were having a few teething problems, mostly down to myself not adequately explaining what I wanted musically. He was able to overcome that obstacle and deliver something that is a mixture of orchestral and metal. It sounds really good, and I can't wait for this to be a final piece in the game.
  • I am currently wrapping up the Duke dev wad, working on the first level for the single player campaign, and sorting things for coding. The initial coding efforts are going to be humble, to say the least, but one way or the other, we'll get things done.
  • I have a lady friend who is on board to voice the Duke babes. She'll be a great addition.
  • MusicallyInspired has offered to work on level music, and I have set him on course to do the first boss theme. I'm very excited about this and can't wait to hear what he comes up with.

Go Metal Gear Rising crazy on the boss battle music :D

In terms of story are you going original with your idea of an aging Duke, seen as a has been etc or are you doing something else?

Definitely one of the better ways to go. I'm looking forward to hearing it.

It's early days for them yet. Why don't you list your skils and experience if you're willing to help.

Well, what kind of skills do you have Pika? We're in dire need of C++ coders. Posted Image

I can safely say it's better than anything that was present in DNF, and it's right up there along side the original and Manhattan Project versions in terms of power and drive. The orchestral aspects are very true to the tone of the Terminator Theme.

Well i'm looking forward to hearing what MusicallyInspired cooks up for that. My direction to him was something combining orchestral and Metal, something along the lines of "Dawn Patrol" "Symphony of Destruction" with a driving resonance march to it.


Plot wise: Borrowing a few ideas from the 2001 trailer, but we're not doing a remake of DNF 2001. The plot see's Duke fighting against an arm of the alien invasion force from Duke 3D that survived in secret. Basically the "brains" of the operation. They take to infecting the Earth Defense Force, with the help of one "Colonel Lukas Wilhelm." Who has basically set his own division of EDF troops up for infection, and as a result Duke/Graves and the EDF troops still cleaning up after the events of Duke3D are forced to contend with a second wave. I have Chad The Voice Over Guy in mind to do General Graves (He worked on the Duke Movie Mock Up Trailer I did last year), and with luck, i'd love to get JSJ involved to do new material. (That'll either be either a generous donation on his part, or a generous donation on mine to hire his services. Posted Image). Colonel Wilhelm will be another matter.


The "Duke is a has been" story is something I keep pocketed, as I hope one day it'll be made into a film project of some kind. It just works so well for the character.

Bloodshot's beautiful work on the Deagle. Never leaves home with out it.
