Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people, people he cares about, are counting on him.
The unfinished Nightfall: Initiation mod. Contains roughly 24 maps.
While browsing through my modding folder on my external HDD, I found a folder simply called "Nightfall" that I uploaded to my drive over 2 years ago.
Only problem is, I have no recollection of where I got this from nor do I know if it still works considering the ungodly amount of changes to the Source Engine since this final build was established.
I currently do not have HL2 installed and also considering I am short on time, I have decided to upload this in the hopes of a once promising mod to see another life in some way.
I do not have the permission from the old dev team but if they in any way want this removed, I will oblige to their wishes.
I feel this is the end of the line for Nighfall Initiation. I have vivid memories of scouring their website up and down for information back in 2006 when the HL2 modding scene was in it's prime and the announcement of it's cancellation in 2007 hit me hard. I hope me releasing this build can give many folks here a glimpse into what could have been the greatest and most ambitious mod of it's kind at the time.

neat, I found the original source code last year, and saved it on my SSD. would be neat to actually give this a go, or porting it to SDK 2013 base someday.
WINrar says the downloaded file is unknown format or damaged. Looks empty.
Strange, I've gotten no complaints about that.
I'd give this a download to see for myself but I'm very close to my bandwidth cap this month. You sure you didn't lose your connection during the download?
I've downloaded it now, and it appears fine. Everything is there.
Try downloading it again, perhaps unpacking with 7ZIP would help if you didn't use it before.
flippedoutkyrii - can you tell me please, When I start a new game, apart from the fact that you can not see any text buttons, it only starts from map_1rebelcompound, without intro or as already seen on youtube with other maps? The youtuber who made the gameplay is "TheMegatonBomb".
You would probably have a better chance with contacting TheMegatonBomb, he has greater knowledge of the mod then I do.
I've tried and it starts without the intro as well, maybe Megaton fiddled with the console to load the intro first.

what a shame the maps i've been on look absolutely awesome the graphics etc are well in advanced so sad to see this gone would have been one of the best mods around RIP.
If you want to go around the maps some triggers do work and a few scripts,
you need to update your gameinfo.txt I added some HL Alyx assets to get rid of the pionk textures on some items.
You guys put a lot of work into this man what a shame.
