As we reported earlier this month, a team of moderators called Amper Software is working on Team Fortress: Source 2: a project that recreates TF2 in Valve's updated Source 2 engine (the same one that powers Dota 2, Half-Life: Alyx , Dota Underlords, and the now defunct artifact).
“Our goal is to redo, improve, iterate and create a new Team Fortress experience on the Source 2 engine using s & box,” he says TF: S2 development block. "This project is a big undertaking. We should consider all TF2 games, try to rebuild each mechanic to feel similar to the base game, but with enough dedication, I think we can do it."
Now, in addition to being a splendid game, Half Life: Alyx has effects to die for and works with the Source 2 engine. One of the effects in particular, the simulation of how light passes through the liquid, is an impressive success and called the Attention to the TF: S2 modifier, Daniel Basiuc-Brînzei, who knows that Demoman likes his whiskey and puts two and two together.
It was decided to copy the properties of the Alyx liquid shadow pasted into the demo bottle model. It doesn't look good at all, but it's still an interesting thing to keep in mind 🤔 pic.twitter.com/MXIOExnifIAugust 18, 2021
Is it whiskey? Come on, it’s Scottish, of course (source: I’m Scottish, send whiskey).
To be clear, TF: S2 is in an early stage of development and you will not be shaking very well lit drink bottles soon. The team uses s & box (pronounced "sandbox"), the spiritual successor to Garry's Mod that uses source 2 as a framework: this tool itself is still in development since Facepunch (the Rust studio founded by Garry "Garry & # 39; s Mod" Newman), so Amper works with incomplete tools. Still, this is some real liquid gold.
