After the update in May for HL2, Most mods stopped working Smod Tactical is one of them. At first we couldn't get Smod to even start. When we could get it running it had broken AI and no correct lighting with no HDR lighting. We know that it can be fixed, we know that it can be done. Again we take no credit for the making of this mod, only the fix. Please keep this Mod up and running. It will be done As soon as possible, we are hoping to be able to have it in working order by the start of 2011, if not sooner.

I Do not take full credit for the creation of this Mod. Most of the credit goes to the old version of this Mod.

It’s been a long time. In fact I would say that it’s been a
very long time, more time than I would like to admit. So long in fact that it
feels like I owe you all an explanation for the long period of time that I have
been gone as well as the truth. I’ve been gone for a long time for a variety of
reasons but mostly a stupid one; I lost the account in which SMOD:T is linked
to. Stupid as it seems that is the main why I haven’t (or been able) to post
any new, updates, or been able to answer any of one’s questions. I’m truly sorry
about that but it is not the only reason why I haven’t been able to be active.
During the time after the release of SMOD: I’ve Graduated High school in 2012,
started in Culinary art the Art institute, subsequently Dropped out of Art
institute (I rather like keeping my fingers and thumbs in the places that they
currently are), and started working to my Accounting degree. In other words I’ve
been rather busy.

So far I’ve done nothing but make excuses on to why I haven’t been able to do anything
and at the same time avoiding something, the truth. I hate to admit it but
there is no update for SMOD:Tactical (Project Life), but is only half the
truth. What I should be saying is that there never was meant to an update or
expansion for it. What I wrote 3 years ago about “new weapons” and “double map
sizes” was nothing more than stupidity at the most basic of levels. I posted
those “updates” (if I dare call them that) while I was hanging out with my
friends and talking about things we wanted to do. My work on a SMOD fix came up
and stupidity spewed from my mouth faster than I could realize, and in a fit of
preadolescent smugness I posted those updates without a care in the world about
what I was saying. In short I AM AN UDDER IDIOT!!!!!!! I was an idiot then and I’m an idiot now.

Why am I an idiot even now? Simple because this is the third time I’ve tried writing
the article. Both times I’ve tried to pin it on one of my friends that stole my
account and posted fake updates or some other stupid idea of mine. However I find
that now is the time to stop hiding behind lies and vales of shadows. No, I’m placing
all of my card on the table to say I’m sorry for my stupidity. This might be
heartless of me but I really do not care if you hate me or not. In all reality
you SHOULD hate me; you have every right to hate me. I will stand by that right
and defended that right of yours until then end of time. This is most likely
the last time that I an update of any kind and I consider that I have nothing
to offer to SMOD:Tactical in anyway. If anyone has anything to offer to
SMOD:Tactical they have my full permission to do so. So long as they use the
Project life version of SMOD:Tactical.

I sincerely regret everything that I promised out of lies and if I have crushed anyone’s hopes.
I just find that it is time for everyone know what they have the right to know.
Still it is with a heavy heart and my most sincere apologies that I write this
for what is most likely the final time.

Happy Hunting, with the most sincere of apologies

You know why nobody is comming to fix this?

Because, if the original modders and coders were too ******* lazy to continue their own legacy, why the **** would anyone else be bothered to do so if new-gen games comming out are exactly like this in a better controlled, fixed environment...?

Exactly, they won't.
Nobody gives a damn anymore.

I have experimented with the mod so far, and I have found out that the AWM sniper rifle makes the game crash when spawned, and if I try to load any level that came with the mod, it crashes too. Plus if I type impulse 101 with exec neo,it can crash too, I have to manually get weapons .Can anyone please explain why this happens and tell me how to fix it. Help would be greatly obliged.

So do I need the SMOD tactical and this to play it or just this?

Sandpaper_Chef Jun 19 2012 replied:

This is SMod tactical, you don't use the original one. Ever since Half Life 2 updated to the Episode 2 engine, you can't use the old Smod. This one has been refitted to work with the Episode 2 engine. I hope this answers your question.

Would any one be able to help me with my problem I have? When ever I try to load any other level than the SMOD setup level, my game freezes, plus, if I try to obtain weapons through exec neo and impulse 101, it freezes too. I would greatly appreciate the advice/help given. I just got this today and want it up and working to kill time with.

I appreciate that you fixed one of my favorite mods and all but why don't you plan on any new features/additions to this?

the creators of this mod have pretty much abandoned this, why not at least add some new weapons or features to a mod that the creators pretty much left without even trying to fix?

Yeah I second that statement.

Also, anybody know where to find some good custom maps for this mod? I mean, HL2 and those couple of other maps are great fun. But get old kind of fast.

This mod will turn Half-Life² into a realistic game with soft aiming that plausibly reminds you that you need to use Ironsights for precise aiming, and added screen effects like water and blood and a motion blur that some call terrible looking but others call awesome, but either way it masks a bad frame rate and you only see it if you are getting FPS under 40. This game is really fun and addicting. There is a in-gameplay setup map that lets you adjust enemy skill very precisely, as well as how…
