Welcome, Welcome to ModDB. You have chosen, or been chosen, to visit one of the highest regarded mod pages. So whether you're here to stay, or passing through on your way to parts unknown. Welcome, to Half-Life: Seven Hour War. You are safer here.

The campaign of this mod takes place during the Seven Hour War. You mostly command armies of Combine Synths and Advisors, but on some levels you will play as the Human Armies, and on special levels you get to play as a Gonarch commanding Headcrabs, or as Glowing Antlion Guardians commanding Antlion Colonies. In Co-Op mode, both players play as one army of the team. They share resources and work together against the enemy. In Multiplayer Local, 1 player with up to 3 ally bots against 4 enemy bots, play against each other. Teams to be chosen involve Combine, Americans/Germans/Japanese/Russian, headcrabs and antlions. Online multiplayer will be like local multiplayer, but with actual living opponents, open slots being replaced by bots.

The main setting is in New Mexico, not too far from Black Mesa. Levels too close to the research facility will have time limits, due to the radiation levels. You will mainly play as combine. This is because the combine Win overall. Some battles you will command armies on earth. This mod WILL go past the end of the seven hour war, after the citadels are dropped. Bonus missions may take place at any time in the universe.

The armies are vast, the stories are vast, the combat is vast. Everything you can expect out of the seven hour war, and more.

Oh, and if you can't tell by the "commanding armies" part, this is an RTS...
Only thing is, there will (eventually) be high resolution models so you can take control of small groups of soldiers from a first person leadership type situation... (if we can manage to get such a thing working)

We don't have any programmers, so progress is very slow, and will eventually come to, if not already at, a giant halt. At this point, everyone will start saying the mod is dead. Don't believe that. I had to put this in here because of such naysayers. Keep hope, and if you know someone who can script C++, or know someone who might know such a person, please look into it. It is a desperate need.

We need programmers, skinners, modelers, anyone who can help is welcome to an interview!


Positions available:

  • C++ Programmer
  • Texture/Skinner
  • Modeler (LOD Detail)
  • Modeler (Cinema Detail)
  • Pretty much anything you can think of
  • WE DON'T need mappers. sorry.

If you are looking to work on the team, contact me on steam. My screen name is The Wandering Scarab.

Hey let's not lose hope, brahs. The developers might have stopped making this mod but that doesn't mean there won't be a Seven Hour War mod. ;) Hey better yet, maybe Valve will make one, who knows?

Also BTW, to the developers, please tell me you were going to add Combine cruisers in this game. I've always wanted to see someone other than me that added Combine Capital Ships in the universe. If not, then whoever is going to make a Seven Hour War mod - DO IT!

Another mod hits the dust.

I have lost count on how many mods I've followed wich died. People just don't know how difficult it is to make a mod before they start, and they get bored and give up.

Too true, some great ones been scrapped. I was so surprised to see that Black Mesa was actually released when it did, with a lack of updates and news. Hope they can finish of xen.
I would love to make Mods, but I know myself well enough to know that I would give up at the start, the patience and time needed would be massive.

Yep. Half life 3 will be released before this. in 2695. By that point, the fictional "future" earth with the combine would be past.
