Snow-War is a Half-Life mod based around snowballs fights.

When you spawn to Snow-War server, you first have one snowball.

To make more you just have to press "make snowball" button. You can carry maximum of 3 snowballs at time unless you find ballbag power-up. You can see the amount of snowballs in the lower-right corner.

You can throw your snowball by pressing and releasing the throw snowball button, and the longer you hold the button, the longer the ball will fly. It's actually very simple, but because the ball is lot slower than bullet, hitting some one moving is very hard.
And that's the point that makes Snow-War sessions very intensive -or frustrative, depending how bad you are :-)

To gain frags in Snow-War, you must hit someone with snowball usually two times. You can see your own health level on the temperature meter. When it reaches zero, you have been fragged!

More information of different game modes and power-ups can be found in the manual that comes with Snow-War install.

30.12.2000, 4 years ago Snow-War site went public. It has been a long road, but I think it was worth it. Despite all the difficulties we have managed to make several releases over the years. As we know many (most) mods never manage to get release out, so I am definately happy Snow-War got beyond the concepts.

And aa celebration of the event, I made Snow-War Classic Map Pack for you all!
It contains 13 maps for Snow-War 2.0. They are from older releases, except sw_industrial3 and sw_snowvalley. Maps included are ctf_riverside, kotm_fort, sw_backyard, sw_badtaste1_snowfall, sw_cool, sw_cream, sw_creambase, sw_ferret, sw_frostbite, sw_industrial3, sw_lake, sw_playgroundII and sw_snowvalley.

Although time has driven past on some of the graphics in maps, they should still provide the same good ol' gameplay they did back then!

Here are some pics of what you can expect:



You can find the pack in Snow-War site right under the Snow-War 2.0 release.

So happy New Year and Snow-Wars 4-year Anniversary!

The port number of the server changed a few times as I moved the game from one machine to another. Just search Game-Moitor for [LADT] servers, and it should be on the list with the current IP and port.
