Oh, so you're stuck at the beginning. Shoot the manhole in front of the casino. You are going to find more apparently unpassable areas, so remember you have a Portal Wrench.

Altered Reality, episode 1, has been mentioned on another gaming magazine!
This time it's Total PC Gaming, a British magazine by Imagine Publishing. Issue 11 (which came out on September 4, the same day as my birthday but arrived in my mail today) includes a 2-pages Prey mod report that mention 6 Prey mods, includes episode 1 in the cover DVD and goes as far as calling it "the best single-player mod for Prey"! Yeehaw!

Nice mod.

Altered Reality- you used to be known around here as "Devil Master", no?

You had an Unreal TC known as The Fourth Coming, which parodied DNF. The shots of Altered Reality look almost identical to the ones you released of the old versions. I say old versions, because The Fourth Coming was originally built on Quake 2 before Unreal. Pretty ironic!

Now let's hope 3DR doesn't switch to the DooM 3 engine because of this mod....

It also seems you took out all the DNF references with Altered Reality, yet the level design remains intact. For example, Las Vegas has become "Shrapnel City", and the hero is no longer a Duke impersonator(his name was Doug Mayhem, right?)

Keep up the good work on this one though, can't wait to see the next level, Morningwoo- erm, I mean some random ghost town.

Re: Prey SP - Altered Reality, episode 1: "Shrapnel City"
Well, yeah, all you said is true.
The problem with T4C is that it never went after the prototypal stage. You could run around in the existing (incomplete) levels, but I've never been able to add scripts to "make things happen", while this is a lot, A LOT, easier with the Doom 3 engine.
Also, I think Tommy is a more interesting character than Duke Nukem (or a Duke Nukem impersonator): he doesn't have "an ego the size of Texas", so he can express emotions like anger, frustration and fear, becoming more realistic. And with such a character, I decided that Altered Reality would not need to be a parody of anything. There would be citations and easter eggs in parts of the level design, but the story would be serious in tone (and not tongue-in-cheek like a parody would imply) and completely original.
In the same way, the next level will be set in a ghost town... but I bet that nothing of what will happen in my level will ever have a chance to happen in DNF.

Re: Prey SP - Altered Reality, episode 1: "Shrapnel City"
Episode 2 is still not complete. I admit I haven't worked much on it during these months, because I found something that (for the moment) fascinated more than Prey mapping. Namely, Dreamcast emulation. As soon as I discovered that I could run Dreamcast games on my PC, at higher resolutions than on the original machine and in stereoscopic 3D, I started again to play classic titles I already considered "dated" and even more obscure titles I didn't consider "worthy" to be played on a simple TV screen. Playing Dreamcast titles in stereoscopic 3D changed all that and kept me occupied for many months, while I experienced those games in a way not even their creators experienced.

However, I want to assure you that the project is NOT dead. Even though I didn't run Preditor as often and as long as I did when I was in a hurry to release episode 1, I still wrote down many details of the plot, refining the story and puzzles for episode 2 and even coming out with ideas for episode 3. If you're asking me for a release date, it's always until it's done.

Re: Prey SP - Altered Reality, episode 1: "Shrapnel City"
Hey Altered Reality.

I started playing your map, but cant do anything.

I use R.Mouse button for forward, and L.Mouse button for fire.
To use the portal wrench, you 'fire' it?
I tried to fire once at the gate (after Grate, after casino), then walked elswhere, and fired again, and no portal shows up.

Am I doing this correctly?

Thanks.

To use the portal wrench, you have to use the alt-fire button (default is RMB: if you redefined RMB as "forward", you will need another key for alt-fire) while you're holding the wrench. You press alt-fire once and it will look like nothing happened, but you just marked the spot for the first portal. Walk elsewhere, press alt-fire again (marking the spot for the second portal) and both portals will open. If you press alt-fire a third time, both portals will close.

Very nice.
Good work.

Except 1 'suggestion'.
Leave out anything resembling the phone bit for episode 2?
My 2 cents.

I'm getting tired of WID too, but, even though I already planned the level design on paper, I honestly have no idea how long it will take to implement it, so I cannot commit myself to an arbitrary release date. WID is the only card I can play.

Impressed by Clint Basinger's voice talent, some days ago I sent him the script for a dialogue between Tommy and Enisi that will be featured in Altered Reality, episode 2. Today, he sent me an audio file with Enisi's lines pronounced by him. I honestly think the result is awesome.

In order to whet your appetite for episode 2 without spoiling its plot, here is a couple of excerpts from the dialogue. http://alteredreality.altervista.org/enisidemo.zip

Center your look on the door handle. Tommy's left hand will show up. Press the left mouse button to use the door handle.
You don't expect the door of your bathroom to open automatically as you approach it, do you?

And still I released more playable material than 3DRealms ever did with DNF.

On a serious note, I know that episode 2 is late, and now I'll explain exactly why. One of the requirements I set myself for the Altered Reality mod is that it must be playable in stereoscopic 3D from end to end (I've been a stereoscopy freak since 2004) and a large part of the episode 2 level does not meet this requirement. Some time ago I was on an editing frenzy and completed what I could safely assume to be 75% of the level. I added a lot of stuff, tests from Preditor itself were fine and all seemed to go smoothly... until I tested what I had done in stereoscopic 3D and the game promptly crashed. I know the Doom 3 engine has limitations in stereoscopic 3D, but discovering exactly what causes the crash and redesigning a big part of the level around this limitation is gonna be a bitch.
Lesson learned: never assume that something works if it may not.

I'll have to download this episode again, now I got Prey off of Steam. Stupid DVDrom just had to quit.

Also, I see you were mentioning Baskinator about doing some Jen lines for you. Ever get that done?

Edit: I hear some of those lines, there may be more in future episodes.
