Welcome to the mod page! Here I'll give some insight into what this mod is.

What is this mod?

The mod is about the earliest stages of HL2's development. Specifically, the 'hyper era' in 1999. This era started in the arctic, and had things like the Weather Control and Kraken Base.

Hyper's a mod I've been working on since early 2017. I was working with other people, but we had a falling out and now i'm doing it solo. Progress has been slow, and i've thrown out most content from before about a year ago. I feel like I have enough content ready to make a mod page now, though.

Why Goldsource/Xash?

At this point in the development, the game was a whole lot more like Half-Life 1- specifically in artstyle and engine. I went with Xash, the closest thing to a sourceport of Half-Life, in order to achieve a mix of Goldsource and Source's features, which is basically what Source was at that time.

I heard about this mod over at Half-Life Project Beta, thought I'd check it out. It looks really good if I should say. Keep up the good work.

there was another mod that attempted to remake HL2's 1999 storyline in HL1 that died due to the developer getting banned. I am interested to see where this one goes. I wish you good luck dear developers, and will track your mod.

The idea to make Half-Life 2 on GoldSource is honestly really cool and i think it will be easier to do because when i was working with WC mappack a lot of levels especially from 2000-2001 had the design, aesthetic of Half-Life 1, like they were made for a GoldSource game so there won't be a reason to redesign them

If somebody doesn't know Half-Life 2 in 1999-2001 was meant to be on GoldSource

Well, the thing is, while the Source engine in 1999-2000 was much more similar to Goldsrc than it is to modern day Source, it was still not directly the original engine. More like a mid way point, with more modern features being added every day.

Do you really need to say that under every beta mod? You're just wasting time doing this sh*t.

Im with hillionliat. Don't listen to that ignorant fu*k, he does that under every beta mod in existence. Even his first comment he ever wrote is a "dis is ded" comment. This mod is going to be amazing, he just dosn't know better.
