CSS SCI FI 3: Hardwired is a single-player mod for Source. Waking up to find himself an augmented clone of Gordon Freeman, the player must fight time-travelling Combine forces across 42 missions set in Counter-Strike: Source environments, including pine forests, windswept fields and ruined factories. Each mission is goal-oriented and non-linear and can be played and replayed using different tactics, options and strategies.

  • Single-player.
  • Retains look and feel of Half-Life 2 while adding new weapons, enemies and abilities.
  • Includes an interactive mission hub, weapon test range and full Configuration Utility.
  • Features 42 non-linear missions, each with multiple goals, hidden secrets and deadly unpredictable AI.

The final version of CSS SCI FI 3: Hardwired has been released. CSS SCI FI 3: Hardwired is a single-player mod for Source featuring 42 unique, replayable missions. CSS SCI FI includes an interactive mission hub and full Configuration Utility which players can use to select different styles of gameplay, ranging from extreme realism to gib-tastic gore. Each mission is goal-oriented and non-linear and can be played and replayed using different tactics, options and strategies.

The maps
Missions in CSS SCI FI take place in 18 retail and 24 custom Counter-Strike: Source maps, which are installed intact to the player's CS:S game folder. The maps are unchanged and are fully playable in Counter-Strike: Source. Maps have been carefully selected with the collaboration of established designers, including Bluestrike, Schuzak and d00ds.com.

Replay value
Replay value sets CSS SCI FI apart from other single-player mods. Because the layout of each map is non-linear, there is never only one way to approach a particular target or goal. Players can work through each mission as many times as they like, discovering new features (including hidden secret weapons) and using new options from the configuration utility each time. Resources are distributed differently and enemies change their tactics with every play, making each mission a unique experience. CSS SCI FI brings the unpredictable excitement and high-quality replay value of a multi-player game to the single-player Source audience.

Hello, I used to have this mod and since re-downlaoded it to play it again, but for some reason, it is full of the purple checkers and errors to where the map isn't even distinguishable.I assume this has to do with Valve messing with the source files, but I'm not sure if it will be fixed soon or if there is a way around it. Is there?

I'm currently working on trying to fix CSS SCI FI to work fully using the recent SMOD Standalone installer. I've gotten Half-Life 2 assets to load however CS:S assets refuse to work properly so I'm trying to pull the same strings with CS:S. With a little bit of time I may be able to help everyone who needs this mod fixed for them. In the meantime, if you're interested, just PM me here on Moddb if you need to say/ask anything.

So far I've gotten CSS assets to load and all weapons and SMOD options to function properly (they were broken for me), but so far text scripts like the HUD message that appear (like when you start the mission hub) don't function as they should and no allies or enemies spawn on any maps. Fixed falling through the floor or starting at the top of the map as well.

Been testing one map after I managed to fix the issue with the mod no longer loading up the CSS assets (and causing the purple checker textures with all the red "ERROR" signs). However, like many reported here already.... While testing one map I didnt feel trough the floor or was up in the sky.... But I had no starting suit and weapons. I Hope this issue will be solved as soon as possible :\

Pros:
I really liked it altogether.
SMOD weapons were cool addition.
Crazy epic gibbing effects.
It actually seemed like there was a storyline to it with the maps.

Cons:
NPC allies are pretty retarded.
No custom voiceovers.
No actual storyline.

Get workin' on Hardwired 2 for god's sake!
