Reimagination of a singleplayer mod "Azure Sheep" for Half-Life 1. With great exclusion, everything that does not correspond to the canons of the original game will be cut out.

RSS Azure Sheep: Part One is out!

Finally, Dear Fans!

Posted by on

Today we're ready to bring to your attention the full first part of the Black Mesa Azure Sheep modification.


Azure Sheep: Part One


What's there:
- The plot created on the base of the original modification of Azure Sheep, as well as its modern rethinking;
- 22 maps (6 chapters);
- A lot of interesting situations, scripts, battles;
- Modified, refined and improved maps presented in the Demo version.

Estimated walkthrough time: 3-4 hours.
From now on, we will collect information about missing objects, textures, bugs etc. If you found something, write about it.
Critical errors related to BM beta are possible in this mod. Thank you for understanding.
Also, we'll be glad to hear your ideas and wishes.

We strongly recommend you going through what you've already seen in the demo version. This part looks many times better, having new scripts, advanced locations, and new music.

Azure Sheep: Part One Release


-F.A.Q-

-Crash on the map as_c4map05.
During the test, we noticed that at low graphics settings, the map crashes, without explaining the reason. Try to increase video settings to the higher values. This method helped us on some machines. If the problem persists, try starting the next chapter (as_c5map01).

-Missing sounds (replacing voice acting).
Each time the sounds in the modification are replaced, it is necessary to delete this file from the archive with the mod (asheep) sound.cache. This happens especially often when using Russian patch.

-"AS - Part One.exe" (New UI)
If you have an error message related to "msvcp120.dll", try installing "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)":

-If you have problems with antivirus when launching the mod from our .exe, you can always do this:
Create a shortcut of "bms.exe", right-click on it, open “Properties” and add “–game asheep” (if you want to use the old UI) or “–game asheep -newgameui” (if you want to use the new UI) at the end of the “Target” field so it looks like this:
"X:\Steam\steamapps\common\Black Mesa\bms.exe" -game asheep


Azure Sheep: Part One Release


-P.S.-

Please note that the modification is done on the latest (on 03-Nov-2019) Black Mesa Public Beta. As soon as there are new updates for BM will come out, we will check our mod for the new bugs to fix. Shortly after the BM updates we will try to fix them.

We will also be very glad to get donates from you, each cent will go to the development of team projects. Our future depends on you.

Have a good game)

Very beautiful work gentlemen! I'm looking forward to the full game. Two things; 1- How do I turn down the light bloom? In some areas the light is overdone. 2- The version on Steam is not this version. This is the extended demo. Steam has the older shorter version. The Steam version does not have the light bloom problem as bad.

Problem with crashing the game on map "as_c4map05" is something is wrong with tank, other than this I had no problem with this map. If I would something suggest, I guess game breaking bug is there, however I found the way how to avoid it, before you encounter this tank, type in developer console "ai_disable 1" and then destroy the tank, after this you can enable AI again ("ai_disable 0"). I hope that will help, good luck guys, keep it up good work.

I also found a problem with the Xen map in Walking to Inbound chapter. When you load the game at this map, the game crashes. You can complete this map without a hassle, but you can't load a game saved on this map (it means you have to complete this map on one stroke). I'm not expert with a programming, and I don't know what can cause this bug. Soon, I'm going to upload a full walkthrough of this mod on my YouTube channel, maybe it will help you improve the game. Good luck guys!
