Though still in the concept stage, I wish to make this a reality. Of course I'll need coders, programmers, and animators (as my only good ability is writing) to make it though. Anyways for a run-through.

What will Half-life 2 Racing be?

It's just as it sounds. A racing game. Players will utilize special vehicles, with unique abilities in a Mario Kart/Motor Kombat (from Mortal Kombat Armageddon) esque way.

So it'll be like Mario Kart? how?

Players will race, and can acquire upgrades (granted by Power Generators), which will boost or grant them abilities. However unlike Mario Kart, users will not have a wide variety of weapons, but instead two abilities (one normal, one "Fully Charged") with them.

How'll it look?

I wish to make a chibi-like game, similar to Mario Kart. All racers are the same size, in a cartoonish, chibi way. Doing this will create a fun visual for users.

What about maps?

All the maps will be levels from half-life 2, but revised into a track. Tracks will features enemies, traps, and much more.

Who can I play as?

The racers will be split apart into three teams: Rebels, Combine, and Misc.

Rebels:

-Gordon Freeman

-Alyx Vance

-Barney Calhoun

-Dr. Magnusson

-Father Grigori

-Father Grigori (different vehicle)

-Resistance Member #1

-Resistance member #2

-Resistance member #3

-Resistance member #4

-Resistance Medic

-Vortigaunt

Combine:

-Advisor

-Dr. Breen

-Civil Protection

-Combine Elite #1

-Combine Elite #2

-Combine Elite Sniper

Nova Prospekt Guard

-Overwatch Elite #1

Overwatch Elite #2

Zombie Carrier

Stalker

Misc:

-Chell

-Antlion

-Team Fortress 2 classes (heavy, Medic, etc.)

What about vehicles?

Vehicles were differate dependingon who you choose. Some will have the classic enemies and vehicles, such as the Strider or Dune Buggy, while others will have new or modified vehicles, such as the Overwatch Elite #2's AR-2 Pulse Rifle APC (Attack Personal Carrier), or Gordon Freeman's Zero-point Energy Field Manipulator Dune Buggy, and others will ride on their own allies, such as Alyx Vance on Dog, or the Zombie Carrier on the Fast Zombie.

When will it be released?

As soon as I get a team, and we get it done.

Mario cart style?
Meh.
Well kinda like a cross between Mario Kart and a mini-game called Motor Kombat from Mortal Kombat Armageddon. Basically its a racing game, but the players can utilize special abilities/powers to take out one another and win.

Mario Kart is the shit, I don't see how that could have put anyone off.

You're probably aware already, but you're not the first person to make a racing mod. There's this and this although a beta isn't even out for the second, and I'm sure there's more I've not heard of.
