Another reality another outcome.....

Shephard is currently stationed in Santiago military base - Arizona there you're part of an special elite force called H.E.C.U - the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit. Of course you're very proud to be part of such a highly decorated military unit. The training was certainly hard but Shephard and that is you never gave up. At the moment our hero is heading over to the firing range for some training as suddenly all alarms sirenes started howling all over the place. Something is up and it's something big. Your entire battalion has been ordered away to a top secret facility only known to public as Black Mesa which is somewhere located in new mexico.

And here it begins. Witness a catastrophe of unknown magnitude as you get deeper in side the facility. Your mission is simple evacuate and resuce as many survivors as you can find out what really went wrong.

Are you good enough to be a real soldier? Can you reveal the truth about the events that occurred in Black Mesa or will you fail bitterly die trying? Find out when the mod gets released.


- Intence storyline awaits with many surprises for the player.
- An enviroment that almost feels alive.
- Many custom voices & sounds.
- Several new monster skins to give the players more variations when fighting the Monster hordes.
- 4 complete chapters with over 30 maps.

Well folks the long wait has finally payed out... Today - my first mod ever to be constructed for Hl1 has been released and seen daylight.

I'll make this post here brief as I've created a separate mod page for the mod which still awaits authorization.

Anyway for those of you who wanna get it...

Get it here:

Military Duty

Note: It has come to my attention that this mod is not compatible with the old WON version of Half-Life. Please play it only on Steam Half-Life. If you do play it on WON expect game crashes- missing music and other glitches. Old WON simply can't handle the code enhancements Valve made over the years for the Hl1 Steam version games and I build my mod with these enhancements enabled so I wasn't taking the limitations of WON into consideration.

The mod still has few minor glitches left but nothing serious so don't worry the mod is fully playable.Still at some point I will release a patch for it.

Anyway I wish each one of you lots of fun and do hope that I will get vast feedback in return from you folks. Be it positive or negative as long as it is constructive criticism. :) I estimate a playtime around 1 to 2 hours. Also I recommend playing it on hard as easy is to easy. And please read the readme. Good luck on your mission Soldiers. :)

Thank InSovietRussia. I will try my best. 1 Thing is for sure I'm far beyond the point where I can just abandon the project. I invested to much work allready in that project so it will see sunlight someday! :)

Glad you like it as for your question:

In hammer options select grid size: 4

Then in your map click the minus sign button in the upper left corner (smaller grid)

Then you should be able to ajust your ratinal scanner onto your wall.
Make also sure that you create your objects allways on the grid never between the boxes or you will get problems with ajusting things.
