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.

Much later than previously intended, the final version of Loop Mod is now available for download. You can find it in the downloads section right here on ModDB.

And on that note, this is the point where I terminate my involvement with the project. And woo boy, was it a blast. Sure, I was not the quickest modder that ever lived but at last I can finally say that the work is done and over with. I am very satisfied with how the map turned out.

I would first like to thank the community at large for being a large help during this process, especially for the good folks over at the Black Mesa Forums who have given mountains upon mountains of feedback over the past three months. It is without a doubt that this mod would have gotten nowhere if it had not been for them.

There's really not much else to be said, so I hope that this full-fledged version of the Loop Mod can be enjoyed by many players to come. For those of you who have already been waiting patiently, I am glad that you stuck it out with me and for that you are hereby rewarded.

And now it's time for me to take a much needed vacation from mod-work. I'll be very happy to carelessly play game again, instead of making them.

So is it possible to merge the Loop Mod and the Uncut mod into 1 map? If so, does it require a specific sequence to extract, or are all the files names different? If they have same file names, do I have to replace a file from Uncut with Loop, or a file from Loop with Uncut, or does it not matter? I just don't wanna break the mod and install it all over again and play over again. So just asking. :P

If you're asking if you can install both mods, then the answer is absolutely. One thing you should keep in mind though is that both loop mod and uncut package their own versions of the A map. You don't really need to worry about this however since Uncut's A map is unchanged aside from a small detail.

In any case, installing Uncut before loop mod is recommended, since installing Loop Mod will overwrite Uncut's A map, and then at that point you'll be able to transition between the two mods seamlessly.

Hi .RK. Just played through the final version of the loop mod and I thought you did a great job. However, there are a couple things I think you should do (I'll post this in BM Forums as well).

1. I believe that the lighting needs to be similar to the other lights in this area in the beginning of the map. I.imgur.com
2. Good job centering this light, but the light emission is off to the right. Please center that as well. I.imgur.com
3. In this area, I noticed that these 4 lights have a shadow above them. Could the shadows be moved back down? I.imgur.com

Haha @ 3.

Why would thre be shadows in the lightened area? There is nothing wrong with shadows above those lamps. There just like lamps in real life.

I changed mind about the 3rd one some time later, but couldn't remove it because my comment passed the 5 minute editing limit. That's why I replied to myself saying "Never mind about the 3rd one. It's fine."
