Valve has released a beta version of the tools for modifying Half-Life: Alyx and users are already demonstrating their unusual creativity with might and main. For example, different maps were created, which allow you to play the piano.
The piano can be found in the second act of the original Half-Life Alyx campaign. It is easy to miss because the game itself does not focus on it much attention. However, the piano is fully functional. But due to the insufficient accuracy of the virtual hands, it is quite difficult to perform anything on it. The presence of the instrument prompted many streamers and content creators to be creative with full song playback.
Since Valve included all Half-Life: Alyx maps in the toolkit, as well as all built-in interactive components, users no longer need to download a hotel map to access the piano. Piano Player’s Room from IK72 was one of the first mods released on the Steam Workshop. People also created a piano room with a green screen and a creepy room where you can play the piano for a company of NPCs, who are not interested in your performance at all.
Of course, there are a lot of other mods that were released during the first day of mod support. For example, several releases are dedicated to mounting. And someone has already added lightsabers and a hallway from P.T. However, this is only the beginning, and players, of course, will create many more of them. If you want to see all of them, you can familiarize yourself with the work of users in the Steam Workshop section.
Half-Life: Alyx is available on PC only.
