Blackmesa II by PilouX

Bit-tech feature: Part 1 Here, Part II Here

We first took a look at forum user PilouX's work in Part 1 of Mod Gods, where we saw his original Blackmesa case mod. However, later the same year (all the way back in 2004 to be exact), PilouX felt the urge to make a follow up project - Blackmesa II.

You might ask why PilouX decided to make a project so similar to his previous one. As it happens, Gabe Newell, founder of Valve Software, saw his original Blackmesa case mod and was so impressed that he commissioned a one-off project for Valve itself to demonstrate their latest blockbuster on. If that doesn't make you a mod god, then we're not sure what does.

Using lessons learned in his original project, Blackmesa II turned into one of our favourite Half Life-inspired projects ever. Make sure you check out both parts of PilouX bit-tech write-up, and head over the page to see more awesome projects.
