It's been a very long time! It's good to see you're still working on things. Your level design is, as it always ways, top notch. I released an HL2 total conversion in late 2017 (https://www.moddb.com/mods/lunar-descent) and have largely left the modding and gaming scene since. Real world commitments and the increasing complexity of making something good meant I just couldn't dedicate myself to such projects anymore.
