Sweet Half-Life is a single-player mod for Half-Life. It includes 3 new weapons and 5 new enemies.
weapons: Minigun: Mowing down an area has NEVER been easier with this bad-ass! Be careful, as it shares ammo with the M16.
M16: One of the mod's main attractions, the M16 is the coolest weapon. 50 round clip, MP5 grenades and a short reload sequence.
Plasma gun: 60 round clip, 240 ammo carried, and the R-A-C-E's standard issue. Secondary fire uses a BIG shot of 10 rounds. Short reload sequence.

Enemies: Minigun grunt: Was "Dumped" from the final game, but it's YOUR chance to see him NOW! Armed with a minigun at all times and its speed make it a weak class selection.
R-A-C-E: Standard aliens, always with a plasma gun. there are only 9 seen in-game if you choose Route A (twist the valve), but a LOT more if you choose route B.
Probe: Think they will take a picture of you? They will zap you instead. Will detonate when killed.
Probe boss: This is a quite hard boss. Only the plasma gun, 357, Minigun and M16 are effective. Its health is unknown.
Kingpin: Boss of route A, Quite an annoying boss. It will say a screen of "die" when it spots you. Teleports anywhere, and launches 10 NIHILANTH's purple spheres. Spawns an army of slaves at you. Kill on sight:). 600 health on easy, 800 on medium and 1000 on hard.

So what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD NOW!

*Edit* Version 1.0 includes a wall-mounted eye that ZAPS you.
*Problem* You must have the High-Definition pack un-installed or your game will crash at the map shl_ship2

Storyline: You are McGinley, the black mesa warehouse manager. You feel that something is going REALLY wrong, and you were right. As you let the scientist escape by locking the garg by the first door (Press the button), he wants you to check the cargo terminal, but not before you get an HEV Suit, a crowbar and a glock. You see ALIENS have invaded the area. It's a good time to put your weapons in action, and mow down the cargo terminal. You make your way through the sewers of black mesa, the surface complex, you get the M16 and vulcan, the train station, the Lambda Complex, the Hangar, a Giant blaster lab, an alien ship, and not surprisingly, Xen. Hint: If you stay and wait long enough after the credits, you will see (Choose route B) Adrian Shepard, on an abandoned asteroid. (Choose route A) R-A-C-E's Defat

Tech-Mech wrote:Hi i recently started playing the mod Sweet Half-Life and I have a huge issue. The HECU enemies don't attack in fact If i aim at them and press the use key they become allies. I did my research and know this is definitely not part of the mod. I have installed many SP mods lately and I wonder if they "overlap" so to speak. So I am asking if anyone knows what cause this or what file I could delete and replace to fix it.

Thanks for your time.

I have been playtesting and this issue appears to only appear in sweet half life. I should also add im using it on steam w/ steamfix installed (which isnt required but gives custom menu)
