About original Azure Sheep:

In Azure Sheep, player takes the role of a generic security guard called "Just Barney". When the Black Mesa incident strikes, Barney realizes that his colleague and love interest Kate, codename "Azure Sheep", is in danger, and he must venture into the facility to rescue her. Eventually, the two join up and work together to escape the danger.

About Azure Sheep remake:

This is a remake under development by a team of enthusiasts, the main idea of which was the exclusion of almost all moments that do not correspond with the canons of Half-Life Universe.
Original mod had many non-canonical moments that will be replaced with more canon-friendly ones. Also we will add new chapter to close up some plot holes.

We were ordinary BM fans and will remain those, who gathered everyone with useful skills back in 2017 to create a project together. We want to thank all those who have helped us in this difficult work over the years. From multiple textures, to models and soundtrack, from scripts to locations and videos - it all became one, like the blocks from which a house was built. We hope that our work was not in vain, that you will like it and remembering our favorite game you will also remember our team.

But let's not be distracted by memories for too long and get directly to news about Azure Sheep: Part One Extended.

At the moment, all our efforts are put on testing and finalizing the latest locations of the mod. One of the reasons that delay the completion of the development: our new ideas. For an example, using the “Jeep Models: Maintenance and Civilian Transports” modification created by Cyvo (one of the leading developers of the mod at the moment), we hastily began to add the modified models to the mod, and soon after that we added more details to them. This is not a difficult job, but you have to constantly check the functionality of new content during the testing phase, which takes time.


Azure Sheep: Part One Extended NewMech Cyvo2


This was just one situation out of many. We have created quite a lot of content over the past two months that we are trying to implement in time. We really want to release everything as soon as possible, but we don't want the rush to affect the quality of the work. Our build is based on the 2018 version of BM. Therefore, the occurrence of problems with the latest version of the game is quite likely, the game has changed a lot in those two years. We spent a huge amount of time making everything to work properly on the latest released version of the game, so treat this with understanding. This also applies to the future version 1.5. We think our future patches will be mostly compatibility-aimed.


Azure Sheep: Part One Extended

What’s with our extension work at the moment?

The main thing is new locations and expansion of existing ones. At the moment they add about 1,5 more hours of gameplay. We improved existing maps, fixed bugs, added some new game mechanics and scripted scenes. We’ve got something to surprise you!

When will we release the mod?

At the moment, Part One Extended is nearing its completion. But even now, when it seems that everything is ready, someone could find something that we overlooked. Have you noticed the absence of the last location from Blue Shift?

Therefore, I want to assure everyone that work is progressing at an accelerated pace and we are very interested in the next release of the mod ourselves. We also plan to make a video with the exact release date.



The last thing that needs to be told is our future plans. After the release of the modification, we will take a little break and will diligently follow your comments and reviews to get info on new errors and know your opinion about the modification. The fans reaction to this project is very important to us. Your interest, feedback and support are our motivation.

What kind of soldier with a designator? HECU? Black Ops? Delta?

Nice news, hope to see the final release!
And I have a question: since you guys will return the cut locations to part one extended, how about the Xen part, will you remain it? If so, will it get updated?

We will leave the xen location as we need to connect 2 different locations, the distance of which is very large. We thought about improving the xen location, there is even an idea for a mini-boss, but the creator of this location is now spending all his efforts on creating a xen map for part 2

Thanks for the reply, and I also wonder, will you guys merge the two parts into a whole game after part two comes out?
And I hope that Azure Sheep will become a standalone community mod on Steam in the future, just like Portal Stories: Mel

We have already started phased global testing. I will not say that it is smooth, but all the problems are just small difficulties.

Otherwise, everything is fine, expect an article in the near future

Greetings, friends! We would like to share some information about the project at the moment. Unfortunately, Part One Extended will not be released in august. At the moment, there’s delay in getting some maps from different collective members together, and the optimization process is taking longer than expected. We also encountered few technical issues we’re currently trying to fix. If everything goes well, we will proceed with the final assembly and full testing of the mod. We’d like to add: time’s not being wasted, it’s just taking longer than we’ve expected. We want to compensate for this situation with two events: - A compatibility patch - it will fix some critical issues with the latest version of BM and will be available for download soon; - The last big article before P1:Extended release, where we will present you new mechanics, screenshots and our thoughts.

Приветствую Друзья. Хочу поделиться информацией по проекту на данный момент. К сожалению В августе релиза Extended не будет. На данный момент существуют задержки по нескольким картам а так же затягивается процесс оптимизации карт. Мы столкнулись с техническими сбоями и сейчас их пытаемся устранить.

Если все пройдет хорошо, в начале сентября мы приступаем к финальной сборке и полного тестирования мода.

Хочу добавить: время зря не пропадает, просто все дольше, чем хотелось.
Эту досадную ситуацию я постараюсь не много компенсировать двумя событиями.

- Мы подготовили патч для текущей версии игры и скоро он будет доступен для скачивания
- Подготовка последней большой статьи, где мы представим новые механики, скрины и наши рассуждения (последний перед выпуском Extended)

Friends, I want to ask you to spread information about our project between your friends. Modd is the only site where we tell the whole world about ourselves, we understand that this is not enough, but we have no experience of working on other sites or social networks.

I keep getting the error "Engine Error: Unable to load manifest file 'scripts/soundscapes_manifest.txt'" when I try to run the game.

I have Steam version of Black Mesa installed, BM Azure Sheep P1 in SourceMods.

Hmm ... the last message confuses me. No need to add the file from mods to the folder:SourceMods.

--> X:\Steam\steamapps\common\Black Mesa

Oh, as a subfolder of BM. Gotcha, I'll try that. Thank you.
