Natural Selection is an action-strategy game for the PC. It is a "Half-life modification", which means it is written on top of the Half-life game engine. "Mods" are a new sort of underground game development that enables small teams to create games using the technology of existing games. This means less expensive and lower risk game development, which allows experimentation and innovation. This arrangement also implies that "mods" are made as art, not for making money. When complete, Natural Selection will be released for free to all owners of Half-life, which is required to play Natural Selection. Game summary Multiplayer-only Half-life mod where one team plays marines and the other plays aliens. The humans must keep their cool and work together to assault an alien-infested spacecraft or colony. Marines vs. marines and aliens vs. aliens scenarios are also supported. "First-person strategy" with a real resource model and consequences for actions....

It's an old version of NS, dated by 30th July of 2003. Uploaded for historical and collectors' purposes, because it's hard to find on internet now. Requires Half-Life v1.1.1.0 (at least) to run.

Win32 and Linux Dedicated Servers Linux server known issue: NS 2.0 runs perfectly on the HLDS stream, which we recommend using. However, the NS 2.0 Linux server does not currently work with the version of the Half-life Dedicated Server for Linux. We"re working with VALVe Software to resolve this issue, and we will post an update to the linux dedicated server as soon as we have solved this compatability issue with HLDS (check forums for up to date info on this at Notes for unzipping to Linux: This is a unified zip file for Linux and Win32. To unzip it, on windows, use winzip or another package and unzip to your halflife server directory. Special note for Linux admins: Please unzip the file *WITHOUT* the -a flag. i.e. simply unzip buy typing "unzip " (without the quotation marks) in your halflife server directory. As always with any new HL mod, reinstalling HLDS and your mod cleanly is HIGHLY recommended to avoid issues running your server. Content Usage: NOTE: This zip file contains only files for running a dedicated server. It will not function properly as a client. It is not for users who want to play NS, it is only for NS server admins. *Note: An updated "so" is available as a seperate download for those having problems running HLDS with Linux.
