Half-Life: Foxtrot Uniform (Official Live Action Trailer) by Benjamin Combes



Banners Of War by NoxStudio

First up in Dota news the newest update has released the Winter Treasure III which includes Lone Druid, Venomancer, Templar Assassin, Sven, Nyx Assassin and a rare Mirana set. The Ultra Rare in this treasure is the Secrets of the Merqueen, a new set for Death Prophet. As with the previous Battle Pass treasures, the chances of receiving this Ultra Rare set increases with each treasure opened.

Lastly for the night we have a new Half-Life fan film from the team that made "Half-Life: Chain Reaction Part 1" that is coming up real soon and I mean March 2016 and this is called "Half-Life: Foxtrot Uniform" and here is the story from Lambda Generation blog post...

(From the blog post)

"The story is set during the events of Half-Life: Opposing Force. The marines are evacuating the base and Private Cooper is left behind with his unit. Cooper will have too find his way through Black Mesa and deal with Xen Aliens and the CIA Black Ops. I always wanted to know his story, because we can see both sides of his radio call during HL1 and Opposing Force. Unfortunately, every true Half-Life already knows his fate."

I didn't even know this was in production with no kickstarter, screenshots, nothing!!! for almost three years then this happened. What I got from the blog post that there was a trailer, HD screenshots from the finished short film and behind the scenes works. But what is more interesting Crowbar Collective yes the team behind the Half-Life remake "Black Mesa" has teamed up with them and are helping out on providing the audio and 3D visuals for the film and it looks impressive for fan film standards. Oh and the director of the project Benjamin Combes had this statement for Lambda Generation team...

“an artistic expression created purely as a fan film, for fans, by fans!“

The kick off of the Vision Summit 2016 today and at the Unity panel Gabe Newell had an announcement vid for the panel and no HL3 but original the Unity engine was going to be a plug in but now will be running nativity on the Vive and here is a quote from the video...

"Valve and Unity are both dedicated to creating the highest quality VR experiences possible. That means giving developers every possible chance to succeed, and our collaboration with Valve is designed to do just that."

Of course at the end of Gabe's speech that everyone in the Unity panel will get an HTC Vive free of charge...go figure now will see for tomorrow if we get anything from Gabe since this is a two day event.

First up Punt: Rebirth is doing there late first 2016 blog post but they have delivered with content and even though its still work in progress but the detail is showing and it's pretty good. Of course new screenshots but also vids on the new cube dispensers, Flip & Pause Cubes and Bomb Cube.

Next up we have a new backer update from the Portal Origins team and they were showing off behind the scenes VFX content which I can't post just because the blog itself is to backers only. But I can also say that they are approximately a quarter of the way done with post and many shots are on their way to completion. So I'll keep you all posted on the next one.
-------------

Lastly for the night new VR feature for the Vive Pre has been added called "Direct Mode" and here is what the mod can do...

(From SteamVR community blog post)

SteamVR’s Direct Mode allows direct communication with the Vive’s displays, bypassing the operating system’s typical display communication path. This results in a more consistent experience for Vive users, as its composited view renders independent of other desktop application windows. For example, flashing displays upon headset detection, confused display destinations for desktop applications, and fullscreen compositor warnings are all resolved by Direct Mode. Additionally, Direct Mode allows the headset to go into standby mode, preserving power and display life.

To sum it up you have more control over the render views from the applications.
