Science and Industry is a teamplay mod for Half-Life, in which players assume the role of Security Officer in one of two rival corporations striving for domination in the cutthroat world of chemical and weapons research and development.

As security officer, it is your job to acquire and protect your company's most valuable human resources -- scientists. Scientists conduct research and develop new products, bringing your company profit. Conveniently, the products your company's scientists develop take the form of new weapons that you and your fellow security officers can use to pound the other company into submission.

Your company needn't be happy just letting it's small staff of scientists toil away at new developments when there are plenty more scientist resources ripe for the picking at the competition. Stealing scientists from your rivals is a great way to boost productivity and keep those new weapons coming, but of course your competition has the same tactics in mind. So defending your company's scientists is just as important as "finding" new ones. Of course, the vagaries of particle physics are difficult to ponder in the middle of a firefight, so if you expect your scientists to be productive, you'd better keep the fight as far from them as possible.

A Selection of Features:

- Interaction with NPC's in multiplayer -- scientists inform you of their needs, and what they think of your performance.
- Profit based not frag based -- the company with the most cash on hand and the most bleeding edge technologies wins.
- Death comes with a price -- instead of respawning players are brought back to life with expensive cloning techniques, which will cost your company cold, hard cash.
- Dynamic game balance -- each round begins with only the most basic weapons, and each team gains access to new weapons based on the success of their research facilities.
- Consistency of design and theme reminiscent of single player experience
- Custom "2 Fort"-style maps
- And much, much more... (No, really!)

A new version of the oldschool teamplay mod for Half-Life Science And Industry has just been released. For those unfamiliar with the mod, S&I is a unique game where two corporations compete for control over scientists to grant them new technologies, upgrades, and ultimately to make more profit.

This new version features its share of additions with new movement techniques, an updated HUD, a new announcer, support for alternative game modes, as well as weapon balance changes and bug fixes. The full changelog is available on the Science & Industry website.

Three tutorial movies have been made to make it easier to discover the game: they show the basics, the movements and the weapons and devices.

Here are some screenshots from the game:

I noticed this mod updated its screenshots back in Jan, and that there's a 1.2 beta testing server out there. I was a big fan of this in the early days and if this updates its definitely got whatever support I can give it.

I'm looking for anyone willing to play. I can create a server and am open to pretty much any maps suggestions, not a strict admin (can say whatever you want). Just looking for people to play Vampire Slayer, Science and Industry or Action Half-life. Feel free to add me on steam my email id is or it should be under "Dave."
