Umm, so, yeah, this is me. Only just got started on working with the Source SDK so I'm about the noobiest you'll find them. The first time I tried to create a sliding door it moved backwards instead of upwards :-P.

My first and current project, as far as you can call it a project, has the name SkyLabs. Its original idea was to create a series of bonus maps for Portal, but by now I've decided I'll turn it into a mod instead of a series of maps. There are two problems with that so far:

-The Orange Box Source engine code isn't yet avaible via Source SDK

-I'm almost out of HDD space

So my best guess is you'll hear again about it in a few years :-P.

Okay, so maybe I was thinking too dark when I said the next time you'll hear of my mod is in a few years. I've found a solution (for the time being) for both issues: 1. I've simply copied all files of Portal into the SourceMods folder, renamed and edited them. 2: I've cleared a few gigabytes of space on my harddisk.

Next to that, the first map for my first project has great potential. It starts to look nicer already, even though it's still very spartanic. I now have to hope I don't lose my enthousiasm for this project.

Remember: the mod is in a very (veeery) early stage now. I have no idea how it will turn out, only very basic ideas of what it has to become, and I know I've only supplied very little information here. I'm not begging, not even asking for help, but if you want to apply, you're, of course, welcome.

UPDATE 8 December 2007

I've created a page on the Developer Community with more information about the mod:
