Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, and find yourself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. You must rescue the world from the wrong you unleashed back at Black Mesa.

The original Half-Life sent a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title won more than 50 Game of the Year awards, was named "Best Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launched a franchise which has since sold over 11 million units worldwide. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original Half-Life and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him or her, from the physical environment to the behaviors and even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

Technical note: most mods “for Half-Life 2” are actually cross-compatible with all of Valve's Source engine games. Check a mod’s profile for details on whether a specific game is needed.

Just before we have start talking, download the alpha version.

Moddb.com

In this media release you will get to see some gameplay footage of the mod. The gameplay video will talk to you about Xen maps. The maps looks normal, but probably, some of them looks bad. So, if you are a mapper, can you lend a hand. It will help me so much. So, here is the gameplay video.

And of course, if you can help me with porting the maps, just send a message to me.

valve is really making it hard to mod, scene.images don't work anymore after the steampipe update, and for awhile the friggen mod tools didn't work at all for weeks until the community figured out a way around it. I appreciate valve's tenancity at updating an aging engine, but is it really necessary to screw with whats worked before breaking mods in the process? Theres alot of old mods that won't be updated..

I got very scared (and angry) during the Steampipe updates. Is there no limit to the amount of things Valve can break?

I don't think so. I do know that Valve left various Source modders stuck, unable to work on anything for a bit.

Is this the part where a novice level designer who doesn't understand Source's limits starts a mod page and tries to assemble a team to make that a reality?

lol people got mad over the 1/10 review.

A single 1/10 can severely hurt the rating of a mod/game, even if it has nothing but 100 other 10/10 ratings.

Highest Rated (25 agree) 10/10

Sadly it never ends for Gordon Freeman, he is gaming worlds Jack Bauer, consistently going from one bad day to the next. No sooner have you blown up the head of the Xenian Nihilanth and discussed career prospects with the mysterious G-Man than he tosses you in the mix again. Another train ride another mysterious situation leaving Gordon (and you the gamer) none the wiser, but thats what we like about the Half-life series and all it's canonical universe, Valve will always give you a Palm d'or plot…
