Could we get an explanation for the "status picture"? Specifically, in what order do those things (gameplay, art, polish) happen, and are there any other that are not listed?

It is explained here https://steamcommunity.com/app/362890/discussions/0/1621724915781044938/#c1621724915781726271
snip "Art" is the penultimate stage, with polish being the last stage. Our current dev process has been something like:

Plan, Iterate, Blockout, Gameplay, Art, Polish

Gameplay basically means the level layout and concept is complete, and it is at a stage of gameplay refinement to perfection. The Xen development process has been quite different to our Earthbound process because we basically get the maps as close to 100% gameplay complete and polished as possible before we start putting art on them.

I think they should decrease the life span of HECUS and other enemies, it does not seem normal for them to have this amount of life, causing you to discharge a lot of ammo to kill only 1 monster. Because this was a mechanic from 1998, to compensate could increase the damage of enemies.
example human grunts life easy 50hp medium 50hp hard 80hp
1 bullet of mp5 = 5 damage ....

There is a xen level that seems to have decent reviews on moddb that adds to blackmesa to tie you over till this releases. Many of the reviews I read were really good and that it actually didnt seem rushed at all. That being said I think its more so closer to the original xen levels than what this is going to be. IT has no affiliation with the BMS team***I havent tried it yet.

I honestly can't wait for this to be completed! (similar feeling to waiting for half-life 3 at this point lol)

I'm sure they're just trying to improve on Half-Life's original Xen since it was utter crap compared to the rest of the game, trying to make it more enjoyable
