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.

This mod was lame. All it was was random bits of stuff that would have happened in the past few days, thrown togeather in a giant terribly english translated nightmare.

This mod is really quite a good piece of story filling here, I think if VALVe were to do a prequel, it would be something like this, you guys filled in every bit of history we never got to play through, and now we can,. Also, i think having the Russian actors with the subtitles was the best way to go, otherwise we all would have noticed fatal flaws in the voice acting, but because its a totally different language, that difference is not even noticeable, thank you for an excellence mod well worth my play...

You should copy directory "induction" into directory of your Half-Life. After that, create shortcut by hl.exe and write " -game induction" in line "Object". For example "D:\Games\Half-Life\hl.exe -game induction"

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…
