The final version of Loop Mod. Zip file contains all relevant material.
Loop Mod is an addition to Black Mesa's On a Rail chapter, adding a couple areas to the very first map of the chapter. The mod reinstates the looped gameplay that was present in the original Half Life but was left out of Black Mesa, in part because the original design was deemed confusing. This issue has (hopefully) been done away with in the mod. It also reinstates three iconic areas from the original as well. The mod also fixes some design errors that were present in the original map. Comes with On a Rail Uncut compatibility.
Greetings and salutations everyone!
I hope many of you have been enjoying the recent steam release of Black Mesa! Even if Xen is still in the works, I, (hopefully!) like most of you, scooped up the game in a heartbeat. I have dug into the recesses of Hammer once more so that the experience of Loop Mod can be enjoyed in the steam version's single player mode.

Currently, the steam version of this mod is identical to the most recent version seen here on this site. There have been very few changes between both the black mesa mod's version of the stock map and the steam version's stock map (the changes that were present can be counted on two fingers).
With the steam version's workshop integration, future patches, if any, will be a cinch.
As far as On a Rail Uncut compatibility goes, I will as always try my very best to make sure that both my mod and the Uncut mod play well together. I am not sure of the status of that in regards to the steam version just yet, but I will keep all of you posted.
