Half-Life 2 Classic is a Half-Life 1 mod that aims to recreate the entirety of Half-Life 2.

Why? Mainly, just for fun, but also because a lot of people like how the goldsrc engine feels, or enjoy the gameplay or Half-Life more than Half-Life 2. It's also a way to see what Half-Life 2 could have looked like in the limits of Goldsrc, if valve never developed the Source engine.

Updates on the mod.

News 2 comments

First of all, thanks to everyone for the support and feedback. It's all really useful and we're all amazed about how much this has blown up. We even made it briefly to #1 on ModDB, which we never imagined would happen.

Anyway, we discussed in our first blog post that we were trying to decide if we should stick to hl1 or hl2 style graphics. We still can't decide, so we've made a poll so we can gauge what most people want, and we'll try to adhere to the most popular option. You can take the poll here. Please be honest, as we'll be basing most of the mod on this info.

Also since releasing the demo, we've gotten a lot more people on the team, and we now consist of almost 10 people. We can't express how thankful we are, and remember if you want to join now you still can.

I guess I'm not the only one to think of this idea! Really well done!

One tiny suggestion, is that you use Gearbox(ish) models instead of porting HL2 models.

A) You *might* get some sort of C&D.

B) It will look better on the engine.

Not everything has to be from HL1 but still. You might want to get some people to make custom models. Sven Co-op's weapons are pretty HL2ish. I suggest using those maybe.

All I can say is we're still working hard on it. Hopefully we'll have something to update everyone on soon.

It is better to wait patiently for a good job well polished, than one in a short time badly done.
