Christmas-Life is a small fun mod for Half-Life. This mod should be a thank you to the community. A year has now passed since the release of Hazardous Materials Episode 1 and the community has given me helpful tips to improve my maps. With this mod I want to say thank you and wish each of you a Merry Christmas!
"Valve have made an update to Half-Life which (as far as we know), includes engine changes and path changes. The path is now in common/half-life rather than usename/half-life." by ruMpel on Feb 15th, 2013

It is a sad message for each HL player and modder. Valve updated HL (for whatever reason) and nothing is working anymore. Recently i had several errors with my mods Hazardous Materials and Soldiers of Honor. In other words HL and my Mods are f***ed up.
For these reasons, i will stop the development of Goldsrc Mods for some time. I had great ideas for 2013 and Half-Life. Almost 13 Maps for Soldiers of Honor are done, 7 Maps of Hazardous Materials Episode 3 are final (!), i developed a new methode to implement real terrain to GoldSrc games. I tried developing with the old WON Version but also this won't work. The huge ammount of particle effects (rain/snow/fire ...), the large maps and some other things results into a gamecrash or laggs. I can't continue the development under these conditions!
Lets all hope Valve will fix the errors, path and engine changes and i can continue with the development! I will expand my skills with the handling of the Unreal Engine 3 and will release a small 'test' project in 1-2 month.
If anyone wants to know more about it:
And now the last 2 SoH pictures for maybe some time:
Let us hope!
