    Half-Life Nightwatch Textures released

    A while back I contacted the founder of the now-dead Nightwatch mod about the possibility of releasing the textures to the public. He liked the idea and after contacting all the people who worked on them to check if they were ok with it, they have finally been released:

    There's some really gorgeous textures in there and I hope to see a lot of maps in the future making good use of them

    Cool

    Too bad they don't want to release the maps.

    Actually:
    Depending on the response to these, I may see about a future .rmf release of some of our level source files.

    Cool. I am trying to use these textures now, but I think I am overloading hammer with large texture wads :/ So I can only load a few to use at a time..

    Awesome.

    HL:Nightwatch was a mod that I've been waiting YEARS for.
    It was supposed to be the last awesome, high quality singleplayer mod for HL1.

    I was absolutely disappointed, that when they had what, 90%(?) finished, they suddenly decided to port the whole thing to the SOURCE ENGINE, the whole project losing it's sense that way. -_-
    It was only a question of time for it to die then, as everyone lost interest.
    The worst part was, that they refused to release their finished HL1 content out of pure, stubborn selfishness, for another team or mappers to work on, for a very long time.

    The whole thing is one sad example, to what a couple of false decisions can lead.
    I hope that we can see a few nice SC maps using the textures soon.

    Just please don't make a contest for it, or we'll never see them.

    It is used for texlights. You define the color and intensity of the light each texture emits.
