Hello Facepunch, and let me introduce you to RECON•

I’m Larry and I’ve been working on a mod for Halflife 2 for a few weeks now, and I have decided to make it public. I’ve created the above document in order to explain the ideas of the mod as best I can, but if you have any questions please post away!
One of the main points of this thread is to recruit a programmer (I’d rather of kept it private but we thought this would be the best way of getting a programmer on board). If you are interested in the mod and you want to learn more, please email me (my address is in the document above) or you can PM me!
Now for some media!
Sorry about the music in that video! Was an accident
Some of the pictures are old, but rest assured this thread will be updated with new content as we progress!
Things we have included in the mod already:
-Lights that can be shot out
These things have all been done within the level, however there is only so far we can get with hammer!
I must stress, we really do need a coder. I don’t pretend to know how much work will be involved, but from my understanding the things that would need to be coded include:
Teams (one team with max 2 players, the other 8-10)
Night Vision (Like the one in Counter Strike Source)
A report system that gives off the stealth teams position every so often to give the defence team an incentive.
And some basic VGUI modifying. I am also interested in learning to code, and I’d work closely with the programmer to see how they work. I’m not sure if it’s possible to code in LUA or C++, I don’t suppose it matters. Please enlighten me! Good English please!
Please leave all your comments on the mod in this thread! If you do think there may be problems with the gameplay ideas, please post here! Obviously at the moment everything is speculation (things like problems that could occur) until we have an actual playable mod with correct teams.
We have had a couple of playtests to see how well players are able to hide in the level, and the players are well concealed.
Here is some previous work from one of our mappers (TH3_L33T)
Thank you for your time!
PS. This is a full mod, not a gamemode for garrysmod.
