Overview

Black Mesa: Hazard Course is an add-on for the Source Engine mod Black Mesa, featuring a completely new perspective on Half-Life's Hazard Course. The Black Mesa Hazard Course will feature:

-New HD models & textures
-New dialogue & voice acting
-New maps and detailed environments
-Expanded intro, similar to Half-Life's PS2 version

Since this is a community project, we welcome people to help out in any way, from suggestions to fan-made content. Currently we are looking for people to fill these positions:

-Animator
-Choreographer

Any suggestions (within reasonable bounds, of course) are also welcome from anybody!

Media Policy

Remember that great mod, Black Mesa? Anyone familiar with the Black Mesa mod and its agonizing development cycle may remember long periods of media blackout. Since this is a community project rather than a full-fledged modding team, we are pleased to announce that, unlike the original mod, it will be our policy to strive to be as open as possible with the development process! 

That's right. Expect to see half-finished areas, heavy WiPs and lots of orange and gray "dev" textures!

We do, however, announce this policy with a disclaimer: We hope that all of our followers will try their best to be as mature as possible, and realize that due to the open nature of our development process, the vast majority of media that will be released will NOT be fully representative of the final product.

This can be a good thing! It allows YOU, the followers, to give feedback early, so that we can make easy changes to give YOU what you want!

So criticize away! Just keep it civil!

Is this mod dead?

If you're reading this, then no. There is no point in letting a project die without notice. If we were to die, we'd be sure to let you know, however we have absolutely zero plans on doing so, and the mod is currently going strong.

Requirements

Black Mesa: Hazard Course requires:
-The free Source SDK Base 2007
-Black Mesa

Thank you. Have a very safe, and productive day.

Good day yet again, people of ModDB. We trust it finds you well. As for us, we're busy Hammering away at this Course, and it's actually coming along quite well!

Tram Training

Over the last few months we've been working our way out of this Alpha phase and into Beta, and while we're not quite there yet, it's certainly in sight! Yep, through university, work and a hint of Impatience, we're polishing our levels and - while we don't want anyone to jump the gun - even working on the finishing touches on a couple. It's all quite pretty and fun if we do say so ourselves.

Holobutton

Alongside that, our script is nearing its final revision. That's right, our bit of additional storytelling is coming in clear and almost ready for implementation. Amidst all of this progress, though, we have hit a minor speed bump.

You see, currently the only one of our members with choreography know-how isn't very experienced. We could make do, but certainly don't want to bring down the quality of this little mod with bad choreography and faceposing, so we need your help. If anyone reading is interested or knows someone who might be, hit up the job page and get in contact with us so we can start bringing this script to life!

That's all for now, guys. We look forward to any applicants and hope to have this project in your hands before the turn of the century. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or cries of outrage, feel free to leave a comment below and we'll address them as well as we can. Until next update!

Looks great, about the voice I read on blackmesasource - Hazard_Course that the BM-team already have made a voice record. Maybe they would give it to you if you ask them???

The team has already asked Victoria to do it, and she said yes.
They are not going to use the old ones due new dialogue.

This is correct. Both CatzEyes (Gina/Vox) and CornetTheory (Scientists/Kleiner) from the BM team have agreed to record all new lines for us.

I'd just like to say that I'm very impressed by your progress! This mod (Black Mesa) and the community add-ons (such as The Hazard Course, Surface Tension Uncut, and On A Rail Uncut) really show dedication to the story! I love the Valve community!

Yeah. You didn't create the geometry, so therefore it shouldn't be distributed without permission, I think.

Technically I'm guilty of doing that myself, in that case. Whoops.

I wouldn't think it would be a huge cause for trouble though. Valve isn't the type to be fussy when it comes to minor things like that.
