Operation: Black Mesa is a total Source remake of Half Life: Opposing Force. Using the Source engine, the developers plan to recreate the Black Mesa research Facility as it was seen by Corporal Adrian Shephard of the H.E.C.U. Half-life: Opposing Force is still an amazing game, although it's not nearly as amazing as it was when it was released.

And before we close this news, we would like to thank you. We are in TOP 100 and we appreciate your support very much! We hope people won’t stop up voting us, as we are getting closer and closer to our goal.
As a small reward, we will to share some more tidbits about how we progress on the multi-player.
The first map, op4_rubble had reached the beta stage and is completely playable. Thanks to this, we can perform all the basic gameplay testing on the weapons and other basic mechanics of the multi-player build. And more maps is in progress to be ready for the initial release. So in terms of progress, everything seems to be in order.

We have plenty of updates in the pipeline, so stay tuned for them. We will show you some more media and teaser trailer from the single-player campaign as soon as we get it ready (it won’t take long). It seems like it’s also about time to start introducing you the multi-player a little bit, so we plan some media from MP build as well, so we are seriously considering a gameplay trailer from it. We should start working on it as soon as more maps get into the beta stage.

PC Gamer also just released a short news about the projects, make sure you check it out as well, as there are some exclusive pictures ;).

That’s all for now, thank you for your support! In the meantime, this is where I get off.

I'm a beginning 3D modeler. Any use for me? I'm can't say I'm the greatest by any means, but if you give me a trial test, you can see what I'm capable of.

Well, it's somehow major drawback if you can't supply UV maps and textures, but you can still PM me. If your work is worth it, we may consider you.

I would love to get into working on mutliplayer, sadly I am so loaded with work these days it would be nearly impossible. I'll keep tabs on this, though. If you guys still need a mapper for multiplayer when things quiet down, maybe I'll join in.
