Gold Source (also known as Gold Src) is a heavily-modified version of the original Quake 1 engine, that powered some of the most critically acclaimed games of it's day:

  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Team Fortress Classic
  • Counter-Strike
  • Day of Defeat
  • and many more.

A powerful and versatile engine for it's time, it helped propel modding forward quite a bit with its mod development tools. And even though it's already 10+ years old, it's mod projects are still going strong.

June 2017 Media Release

We promised to keep you updated and here we are again with another media release.
This is what's been happening:


Since we last updated you we've been hard at work composing, animating, modeling, drawing concept art and much more, some of which we'll show off in this article and some that will be shown off later in another article.

To start this off this media release we have three tracks we’d like you to listen to. These are all tracks to be featured in the mission `Recoil`.

All tracks composed by our talented composer, David M.




Last time we showed off a couple of guns, here are two more

Just look at this bad boy, the Desert Eagle Mark XIX .50AE
Capable of literally blowing your mind, and then some.

We also have an AKM model to show off, but this one was made by our animator, this is also their first model ever and we think it turned out great!

This beauty was made by our second wonderful 3D artist, Hoàng L.

Recovered Operations: Desert Eagle Mark XIX

The AKM made by our fabulous animator, Budai G.

Recovered Operations: AKM

Since we all like weapons in motion, here is a look at the Beretta 8000 2.0 and Desert Eagle

“Didn’t you show off the Cougar in the last article?”, you may ask. And the answer to that is yes. Yes we did. Our animator has been hard at work trying to find their style and they finally have found their own unique style of animating, and this is the Cougar and Desert Eagle in action with this new style applied.

Done by our fabulous animator, Budai G.

Recovered Operations: Beretta 8000 2.0 Animation Set


Recovered Operations: Desert Eagle Mark XIX Animation Set


Now over to some concept art, these are some of the key ST6 operatives


From Top to Bottom: Commander, Delta Sniper, “Operative” w/ outfit concept.

These concept art pieces have been put together by our (yet again) wonderful 2D artist, Hoang L.


Recovered Operations: ST6 Commander


Recovered Operations: ST6 Delta Sniper


Recovered Operations: ST6 Operative w/ outfit concept


What next...?

And that concludes the media release article, and as promised we'll continue putting effort into Recovered Operations. Make sure to keep checking in as we will stay in touch with the community through our forums, as well as posting updates on ModDB.

Just because its old doesn't mean its not fun. This engine is the kicka@s engine of the 1998"s. I salute Valve and GabeN. I love Goldsrc!
