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.

Hello again, ModDB. It's been a few months since our last big update. Sorry to leaf you in the dark, but heading back to our roots we're gonna bark up a storm of progress as we branch off to a new milestone. Tree.

We're happy to say that Hazard Course has entered its third and final Alpha phase! Not only is this a very nice milestone, but also one that we were actually able to meet our deadlines for. Shocker, right? (Especially, after that Alpha 2 stint...) Regardless, despite the last few months being filled with work, exams, and Building Managers incapable of delivering furniture on time instead of a month late, we met our goal. As a bit of celebration, we come bearing gifts.

Battery Room

 
Keeping with the paradigm of previous Alpha announcements, we're ready to accept another couple of testers. We're once again resetting the tester queue and anyone interested should apply (even if you've already applied in the past). Space is very, very limited, however, so don't be discouraged if you don't get accepted. We're mostly still in school, it can be hard for us to manage groups of people with feedback, you know! If you're interested, hit up the Tester listing on our jobs page and read the terms thoroughly. This will be the last version that we'll be accepting new testers, as we feel our current team is suitable.

Lobby Hall

If you've got any questions, comments, hatemail or feedback, feel free to comment and let us know, and we'll do what we can to address them. Just keep it reasonable and civil!

That's all for this update, see you soon.

Will the BM team ever add this level, and the others? I mean, Surface Tension is here on moddb to add, hazard course is not included and Xen is still on the way.. Will the release on steam have all these levels finally after all that time?! Because this version of the hazard course looks brilliant so far!

We're not sure if its gets implented in the game itself, because the game is not even finished yet.
If it gets, its a huge freaking milestone for us.

Define mod. We're adding new textures, models, voice work, choreography and levels.
