Half-Life 2 Substance installer v2.1
Half-Life 2 Substance full version




This mod harks back to a bygone age, when innovation with first person shooters was king.
Games like Thief, Requiem or Shogo would explore new approaches to the shooter genre.
Substance sought to merge the different playstyles into a precursor to the Crysis suit.

Each of the HEV Suit Modes comes with its own weapons and abilities, like energy shields or cloaking.
Just like multiplayer classes, which can be switched on the fly and share one gigantic inventory.

Newly available in this version, is the VR Missions map pack: as Substance used to be limited to the
vanilla and remastered campaigns, it can now be played in over a hundred Half-Life 2 classic maps
such as Strider Mountain, The Citizen, Rock 24, Riot Act and Mistake of Pythagoras!

VR Missions Final


To install the mod, place the Half-Life 2 Substance installer in Sourcemods and run it with admin rights.
Note: Half-Life 2 and Source SDK 2006 must be installed, and run at least once before installing.

Vatoloco asked how to install this mod with a Steam ripped version of Half Life 2. The only Steam ripped version of Half Life 2 that you can install mods onto is the 'Jaxor' release that came out in April or May of 2006. (Google - Half Life 2 + Counter Strike Source + Day of Defeat Source + Deathmatch + Lostcoast + Metastasis 2). Or email the group at J4x0r.Help@gmail.com

Im about to try this mod and it sounds wicked!

From the sound of it, this mod would completely dominate other mods if it had multiplayer coop support! I'd love to play a mod like this along side a good buddy on the hardest difficulty! Watching eachothers backs, sharing ammo clips, using practiced stratigic manuvers, or even one having to leave the other in a hiding place while you go try to find a medical kit for him because he's dying! Man... talk about the ultimate gaming experience!!!

Back in the golden days of hl2 modding, this was something I played multiple times, and looking back at it, I sincerely wish I could go back for more :( The new additions to the hl2 campaign struck me with surprise and awe and the dozens of new weapons made the action tight and refreshing, with new additional monsters and player abilities to decimate them with. It's a shame this only partially works with mod fixes following the may 2010 update. Perhaps someone with some free time on their hands…
