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:


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.


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.


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!

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.
