Everyone likes christmas no? Yeah... the gifts.. the big tree.. the roaring fire! Then again, there are the parents... the hugs... the crappy presents, the "sure to be radioactive" fruitcake, the old arguments coming back over and over again! Thus, the use for this mod. Xmas is a way to bring christmas... into Half-Life! Everything in HL is replaced with christmas themed stuff. The 2d art, the models, the sounds, everything is changed! So now, when your mad because of your ol' grandma coming to hug you and kiss your face, you can relax!... by shooting off a few grenades and blowing the crap out of your enemies! Xmas: "Santa's coming to town!... and he's packin' heat!"

Another year has passed and that means another version of Xmas is underway.

Xmas being mostly a 1-man team effort (myself), the time spent on bringing this mod to life was extensive. Seeing poeple make servers and playing is the only reward this developer gets for his hard work.

Also, being a seasonal themed mod, it's life expectancy is rather short. And other issues also prompted the next version of Xmas to be 1.1, which was supposed to be released shortly after 1.0 last year. But due to the lack of players, it was post-poned.

In short, Xmas 1.1 (released tomorrow) will be 1.0 with many fixes and changes to weapon balance. Here is the changelog:

New
-New Steam background and full compatibility

changes

Stapler
-No more zoom
-Damage lowered
-Magazine raised to 25 staples

M4/M203
-Slightly increased damage
-Grenades fly slightly farther

Raging bulb
-Slightly increased ROF

Coach gun
-You can no longer reload to full (2 shells) if you have 1 shell left in reserve

Candy Cane Crowbar
-You can now hit poeple slightly farther from you due to the candy cane being bigger :)

Known bugs:

Coach gun
-Fire animations are out of sync
-Reload animation jerky

Also, come December 24 2005, you'll be able to play Xmas on HL 2's own Source engine, as the development of Xmas on HL 1 will cease as of tomorrow.

Lastly, if you are a website admin and wish to mirror Xmas, please contact me at navalpha@hotmail.com. Xmas is not a big download (less them 30mb) so please, be generous :)

Happy holidays, and to all a good fragin' night.
