Hi there, and welcome to my project to "uncut" Black Mesa! Black Mesa was a crowning achievement for modding for sure, but it felt like it was lacking a little in some areas, particularly Surface Tension. For those of you that were not aware, Black Mesa's version of Surface Tension cut out a map from the original which was integral to the story's progression. Its replacement felt rushed and poorly implemented. My mod attempts to add that little something back into the game. I took the liberty of re-adding the cut chapters from Surface Tension as I feel their omission strongly harmed the story and really damaged the tone of Forget About Freeman. I've given them the same treatment Black Mesa gave everything else. This mod currently adds 40 - 50 minutes of gameplay and story to Surface Tension, improving the Black Mesa experience and it's overall narrative. It integrates seamlessly with the Black Mesa campaign too, just like it should. Why not give it a whirl?

This is the installer version of the new and improved Surface Tension Uncut 2.0! This version sees significant improvement from the previous release (v1.11) with lots of bugs, gameplay, and design flaws being fixed, and a lot of detail being added to areas which really needed it. Did you feel that Surface Tension in Black Mesa was lacking? Did you dislike the fact that there were fairly hefty cuts to arguably the climax of the entire game? Look no further, Surface Tension Uncut adds 40 - 55 minutes of gameplay to Surface Tension, linking seamlessly with Black Mesa's main campaign, and providing lots of exploration and epic scripted battles, as well as fixing the extremely broken Gargantua scene from Black Mesa's original map. The installer features an uninstaller which will also revert your game to the way it was before, if so you desire.

Great looking mod! I'll check it out.
(Shouldn't "Black Mesa" be in the "Related Mods" section to the side?)
