Paranoiac is a 7-map expansion pack (plus 1 TITLEMAP) for Paranoid, a Half-Life mod for GZDooM. Mapping on 5 of the 7 maps is complete, and progress has been made on a 6th map. Work on new enemies is complete, and work on new weapons will commence soon. In addition, Jeff Ligda has already composed brand new music for many maps, and will be working on additional compositions.

Surprisingly, it's not the parking garage that seems to slow things down, but a complexly-sloped canyon nearby. I may have to simplify the canyon.

My guess would be that it is a model.
Blue Shadow is correct; it is a model. It was Enjay's idea to implement translucent slopes using models, and he had originally created them for Paranoid. I believe he created a custom model for the sloped roof in that particular screen pic.
If you wanna get fully-animated HL models into this, you can use a program called Noesis. It can convert skeletal animation to vertex, and directly export it to md3 all at the click of a button. Problem is, you'll have to edit the UV map so the model doesn't use multiple textures.

Thanks for the information. This is a job for Enjay, who is the modeling powerhouse of the Team. I would love to see models in the game in place of the current sprites. But when we started this project, back in 2008, there was no easy way to convert mdl to md3.
