New mod for Half-Life: Alyx from Modder cj_beans presents the map sandbox style, where you can play as Gordon Freeman, and create different items, weapons and enemies. It also means that you can fight with Jeff Gordon.
Since the release of Half-Life: Alyx last month, the community of madingou increasingly working with mods and custom maps. One of the most popular mods that we’ve seen is a mod XenThug for wave shooter, which runs as a brand new Horde mode. There were other cool, such as Wolfenstein 3D mod.
Now a new release called “Gordon mod” puts you on the map “sandbox” under the name of Gordon Freeman, where you can press buttons for appearance items, weapons and enemies. There are also several rooms to explore, but the most interesting — create cool combinations of objects and mess around.
As you can see in the video above, you can create a legendary scrap Gordon. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work as a melee weapon — if you try to use it against the enemy, he just falls out of your hands and will not cause damage. Alyx wasn’t in melee, so it’s not so surprising.
Although the mod is not very significant, this is a fun way to spend a couple of minutes to Tinker with different combinations of enemies and weapons. This is even more impressive, considering that official support for mods from Valve, which was promised during the announcement Alyx, not yet implemented. All these cards are built using a custom, modified version of the Hammer — official updated version of the tool with support for Alyx and VR is still expected from Valve in the future.
If you want to try the mod Gordon from cj_beans, you need to join the server Half-Life: Alyx Modding Hub shell to load the map. You can read more about how to join the server and how to run custom maps Alyx here.
