So, after a long time, i managed to make a small vid. It's pure without logos and all, since some of you just wanted to see the weather system in action.
As allways it's wip, but well lookey here

Wow I really like how you created those clouds out of thin air. Great job on all that and the fog(really makes it).
Although I do have the feeling the lighting is still a bit too intense which such a dark weather, it does cover up the sun neatly.
Is the snow made of particles, or how did you create them?

Yeah it might seem that it's still to bright, but that's not the lighting itself. It's the auto-adaption of the HDR-tonemapper. Means whenever the screen gets to dark, the game tries to brighten it up, same as your eyes would do it. Might need some finetuning on the level where it adapts to.
Atm the clouds itself are the heavy part, but then those are the high-quality clouds(the low quality ones are allmost 5times as fast) and yet not fully optimised, still every map runs at 60+ fps with max settings.
Yep the snow is made up of particles, think the system uses around 350k particles max, rain a bit less

Just for your information, you need HL1 to run ESF, but the engine is not HL anymore, it's a custom one

oh ok, cool i didnt know that, so it basically just needs some files from hl1 to start and using a custom engine, thats nice, has lots of potential, so there is no more hl1 model limit, 256 models or something was it?

We don't use that much HL-style models, means mdl files. But no we don't rly have that limit anymore, since we have to load mdl files ourself due to some file format changes.
The core structure is still HL, but the sound-engine,render-engine and physic-engine are not HL anymore , so yeah we use HL only for network, some file loading and main menus

The character models are still .mdl format. We just had to write our own compiler to get rid of some limitations.
