Back in December
ICE HL2 Expansion released to the public followed by a news article which was kind of late, but still had been met with a decent reception. It was shortly afterward that I was contacted by a person who offered to port the mod from a Episode 2 2007 SDK Base to the current 2013 Source Single Player SDK Base. That person managed to port it in a day, and through a few exchanged e-mails and bug checking the port was ready for the public. Recently released.

Thank you Marc-Antoine Lortie for porting the game code, and for providing a very small and simple patch file (For those just looking to upgrade the initial release mod folder, quickly, to the newer engine, link below), and for also setting up a git repository for the ported code available to the public. Also, for restructuring of the SDK project to find those newly created ICE code documents within source code easier.

20180105120227 1

I felt that this news post was important because we still see a lot of individuals downloading the initial release, and not so many of the new engine port. This leads me to believe that most people are obtaining the download link from the last news post. But why is the 2013 SDK any better? The 2013 Source engine is much more improved in visual quality and operation. I've tested areas of our bad maps that drop the frame rate, and it runs a bit smoother on the newer engine.

For everyone who missed our news post last month (because it was such a busy month for us all) I hope that you take the time to look it over, as it gives thanks to a lot of kind people who helped us in the development of ICE, and some insight to some of the great programs used in the mods creation.
Here is a link

So, if you are looking to download and play ICE, then you want this:
icemod v2013sp 01032018


If you have already downloaded ICE before January the 3rd and want to patch your mod folder to play in the new game engine you want this:
Patch initial to 2013 port


If you are looking for the source code to learn from or fix issues with the ICE game code (ahem* AI) then there is this -> GITHUB LINK, or the zipped download for that too:
hl2 icemod master 2013 enigine port

(It is also a good reference and learning project. How did we make the player wearing the helmet sound muffled? It's all in the code.)


Thank you everyone who has played ICE the HL2 Expansion mod, and everyone who has made videos on youtube playing through the game. Its been great watching it so far. If anyone wants to help further the development of the project; touch up mapping, fix game code, remodel? You can contact mrjasonsnell@hotmail.com

Thanks and we hope you enjoy your winter!

This just looks brilliant. It's like the REAL Half-Life 3!! And that's not even the gameplay. A really solid mod, well-made, and just good in general. I definitely recommend this mod!

Normal Shotgun's reloading sound is glitched since it uses the same reloading sound as the aperture shotgun. You should probs make two separate sound folders: one with the normal shotgun reload, and one with the aperture shotgun reload.

Surprised I didn't catch this. I can fix it by changing the sound effect listed in the game_sounds manifest, and the weapons script file. There will be a new update and port to 2013 coming, but it looks like were going to strip the mod of the original hl2 shotgun.

Господа, это тихий ужас)
Нет, точнее громкий, а именно звуки, они вызывают лишь непонимание того, зачем авторы заменили стандартные на это недоразумение.
Вызывает недоумение мыльные текстуры в стиле первой халфы и хуже, да и модельки тоже оттуда, поведение NPC, которые реагируют на игрока через раз, в большинстве случаев просто стоят манекенами. Про дизайн уровней вообще промолчу....
Однако, должен отметить замечательные модельки сосулек на крышах xD

The NPC medics at the start keep trying to give me medkits, but nothing happens.
The super cold section is impossible to get through unless [possibly] you start with both health and energy at 100%-and I'm not convinced you could do it even then. I wasn't going to go back and replay to try to arrive there with max health, so I just cheated through that.
The hidden stairways in the subway station seem kind of dumb and non-intuitive.
Some nice maps, but after the start there is zero interaction with any other speaking character. Some interesting and not badly done maps, some less so. Not much story development going on either.
I've seen worse, but I've seen better too.

[Spoiler] You can use your helmet "h" to get through the super cold part without loosing any health, or under water. The helmet also relieves a bit of damage when hit, and has cool blood effects when killing enemies near you. But yeah, the story is loose it was only implemented in the last couple years of development while not much was getting done.

Thanks for that info, notaclevername. If there was some way in which the mod attempted to help me know that when I needed it, I missed it.

This is one of the best HL2 Mod's I've ever played. After being so disappointed & let down with The Closure, all of my hopes for a decent fans attempt at making their own Half-Life 2: Episode Three. But this was more than decent, it was great! The New Weapons were fun to use (Dual SMG1's, Aperture Shotgun, & Mobile Turret FTW), New Enemies were fun to fight, and New Maps, whilst not great looking, were well made and balanced enough. +Pros +New Weapons. +New Enemies. +New Maps. +New Gameplay Functions…
