A historic-themed Rats project for multiple Source engine games. A half-conversion mod; Set in summarised 1980s theme, but with hints of previous decades to be a bit more realistic.

So far we've released for PVKII, BG2, and CSS; with future releases for CS:GO & No More Room In Hell.
5.3.3 has been released for testing, but only for CSS at the moment.

The aim of the project is to push Rats to the limit and add functionality to existing titles like the ones listed above. You may have seen servers in CSS that change gameplay and player models without needing to be an entirely separate game. That is the aim so you may enjoy many flavous of Rats in your favourite Source engine mods and games.

New features I would like to support in the maps:

  • Enemy AI: Roaches, Spiders, Cats. I already have an animated spider, now she just needs a little coding so she can feast on her victims.
  • New CTF and Territory gamemodes designed specifically for Rats environment; except for NMRIH. The downside of Rats maps in games has been the lack of tailored objectives, so I hope to introduce to you a new experience.
  • Better transportation and teleporters; Gliders, better ropes, mine carts, zip wires.

Currently the artwork is 80% finished. Just need to texture a few existing items, and fill the room with small props and junk. The rest of the work will be coding in the features. My original plan when I started was to have a Kitchen after The Bedroom, and think I will still proceed with that choice.
Let me know what you think. :)

It was torture and there was a one day delay because of it, but I managed to get the release out.
I'll have to follow up with another soon for bug fixes, but you can go ahead and start playing and giving feedback.

I didn't release it yet. I had plans to, but became too busy with greater priorities and then forgot entirely. I'll release it as soon as I can. For now try the CSS 5.3.3 version to make sure it runs fine for you, cause that is basically what NMRIH will be using.

Well there ARE separate sections for CSS and Half-Life 2 on Moddb.

And you for some reason put it in Half-Life 2...
And this is clearly a CSS mod...

This profile was created before a "CSS mod" option existed.

"Can people read anymore?..."
IF you bothered to view the downloads section, you'd find a release for PVKII and Battle-Grounds 2. This is not a CSS mod.

Clearly you are a very unhappy person to come on here and vote down my comments as well as insult me by implying my reading comprehension is lacking;
When clearly it is yours that is lacking.
Go bother someone else, or better yet, do something more productive with your time.
