Hello, Half-Life community. It's Hazard Team. We are still alive and we return to work! Over the years since release of Induction we got great feedback from you, HL fans. It was very surprising for us that this small mod could attract so much attentions. Actually we meet some surprises up to now. For example, recently we found out that well-known combineoverwiki uses screenshots from Induction in its article about Sector A Training Facility.
We abandoned Half-Life for years, but it seems, modifications and tools for this great game are still topical and developed. Also Valve ported Half-Life to new platforms and continue to update the game. All this inspires us to return to mod development. And we will start with Induction update.

So which changes do we plan for Induction?

  • Reworked maps. Every old map will contain new places and scripts.
  • At least one new map.
  • Small bug fixes.
  • Achievements and achievement system.
  • Linux support. We already built version for Debian, but it needs some tests.
  • Open git repository for storing sources of maps and code.

Thanks for attention. Watch for news.

Now you can dowload .map and .rad files of Induction's maps. You can use some prefabs, but don't forget to mention me in credits.

I downloaded it and was really looking forward to play it. Evenso the idea is nice, i dont like the mod. The reason is, that a lot of things totally ruin the atmosphere:

- The running scientist. Maybe some players would find it boring, if the scientist would just walk slow like in the original intro, but i personally like it more realistic
- The russian language. I like russia and their language, but it destroys the atmosphere totally. Whole Black-Mesa looks so typical american, that scientist speaking russian seem to be from another planet.
- The translation is done very poorly. For example, after your registration you get into a train and the scientist tells you after arriving "We came". Correct would be "We arrived". "We Came" would mean, well, that they just have had sex with each other ;)

Good try and i appreciate your work. But in my opinion the atmosphere is totally destroyed by the things mentioned above.

you did a great job with this mod. congratulations. some of the translations were a bit lackluster, however. i laughed out loud when it faded in from black and the scientist says to you, "Gordon, we came."

You're making a mistake. It's worth downloading.

This is the kind of mod that fits my tastes. If there was something I'd always loved, it were the parts of the original game/mods before the accident. Seeing all the machines working, employees walking around and other daily stuff. No matter it's in Russian, I really liked it.

Cool. A few bugs but so far, awesome mod. Russians are cool!

One of the most boring mods ever made for HL. While the mod is daring to be something not based on action for a game that is action based, there is some room here for success depending on the ideas put forth. The gameplay is tiresome, there is one scene where we get to do one of those barney vs gordon competition to see who get inside and unlock a scientists door (gordon naturally taking a ventilation shaft) but the story seriously does not go anywhere. We are fed small snippets and have to do boring…
