May 18th, 1993.
An infection has spread over an island off the coast of Great Britain, it spreads tremendously quickly, leaving no survivors.
The British government immediately sealed off the island, sending in the army in order to quarantine the island, they kept it secret from the general public by claiming that the action was done as a military exercise.
The island was codenamed "Dead Sector".
Remod is a mod for DS that tries to bring :
- HD Models.
- Detail texturing for most of the textures.
- HUD Changes.
- Sound FX Changes.
- Translation from Czech to English in both text and voice (Not perfect, may have improvised a bit).
Remod already includes the DS files, so you don't need to need to install the older version, just install this one on your HL installation and you're good to go!

Installation is simple, simply extract the DSRemod folder that is inside the .7z into your Half-Life installation folder (Where hl.exe is located, NOT inside any of the other folder such as "valve" or "valve_hd")"
Example would be "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life"
There should now be "valve" and "ds" inside you Half-Life installation folder along with any other
mod/steam-related folders you may have inside.
Restart Steam, "Dead Sector - Remod" should be inside the Games list.
If that doesn't work somehow, create a shortcut of hl.exe, open it's Properties, add " -game ds" to the end of the target bar.
Example would be "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\hl.exe -game ds"
The mod also adds simple detail texturing, if not activated yet, type "r_detailtextures 1" and its counterpart into the console.
Hope you enjoy!
And so, another one comes.
This was to be honest a pretty polarizing mod when i last saw it.
To some people, this was a pretty good mod, level's nice looking, a good enemy variety, some environmental puzzles here and there, an acceptable ending, some cool set-pieces, not really much to complain about.
To the others however, this mod was filled with broken optimization that causes severe lag on older computers, filled with arbitrary difficulty such as a line of zombies in a closed up path you HAVE to traverse through without weapons, confusing puzzles, inconsistent zombie models, made for the kind of people who knows GoldSource inner tricks, and last but not least, no English translation.
One commenter literally said that he removed it the moment the menu comes out Czech is his face.
I think that was one of few reasons that STALK3R, the mod's creator tried to remake it.
Anyone remembered "The Island"?
That HL2 mod?
That was Dead Sector, but cut down, immensely.
No puzzles, no tricksy movements, no tripmine climbing.
And most of all, the maps for the most part were set in plain daylight, not early evening.
Killing multitudes of zombies with the usual HEV hands for some reason.
To most people, this was average.
Disappointing for me since the original did kinda stick in my head for a good while.
Some of what made DS memorable was lost in transition.
So i did this.
Something for the fans of the older version, i know it might not be the cup of tea for a lot of players due to some of the original's silliness.
Hell, I even put in some extra notes to help out new players get through the tricky bits.
Well, at the very least a translation, no?
I used a translator program for literally all of these and added in some of my own interpretation of the word as translators are generally unreliable to simply copy and paste.
I find it odd though that the actual mod page for DS here claims that it took place in July while the mod itself dates itself at 18.5.1993 which is in May.
There's also the thing where the squad that was tasked to quarantine the island was the one named Dead Sector, which is odd in the titling sense, kinda undermines the name a bit, so i did some creative liberties.
The voice clips are altered too, in which i just say out whatever in the mic, since i can't exactly translate voice clips from a program (not yet anyway, here's to the future).
This might take out a bit for people who understands Czech and finds themselves seeing an entirely different line or word to what was it supposed to be, i do hope that they can forgive me for the transgression.
So here it is.
Dead Sector - Remod.
I hope everyone enjoys it.
