Half Life 2 & Dod

Good news for all you Day of Defeat fans out there.

From www.planethalflife.com:
A Half-Life 2 SDK (Software Development Kit) for mod developers will be released prior to the game hitting store shelves.


what does this mean you ask?

well an sdk is the pack the game developers release to people such as valve.... valve makes counterstrike and now DoD too.

this means that the developers of these mods will be able to port the mods over to the new graphics engine and such before the game is release.

here is a tidbit of an interview with Valve's Erik Johnson:

We asked Valve's Erik Johnson to clear up a few Half-Life 2 rumors that have been spreading around:


Rumor: A Half-Life 2 SDK (Software Development Kit, what mod makers use to help make mods) will be released before the game is released.


Erik says: "Yes, we will be releasing an SDK for the Source engine for MOD developers before the game is shipped."



Considering the SDK for the original Half-Life wasn't ready until months after the game's release, this is great news!



Rumor: The Day of Defeat team is already working with Source.



Erik says: "The Day of Defeat team is currently working on the follow up release to Day of Defeat 1.0, which will be version 1.1. They are not yet working with the Source engine."




So it looks like we will be seeing a whole new DoD sometime in the near future

Worldcraft was on the CD. OK, so it was an older version but not very old. So an SDK was released with the original.

worldcraft was not an sdk.... an sdk has raw code and much much more in it.... it enables them to change the entire game...


also those quotes in my first post are from the guy that worked on halflife.... i think he would know if an sdk was realeased with the original halflife better than you CCW
