Welcome to Overhaul


Welcome to Overhaul.


Half-Life: Overhaul is a Half-Life modification where our goal is to do the same things Gordon Freeman has done, but with better equipement.

We basically add/modify to the original Half-Life experience to make it smoother, while still keeping the good old feel.

90% of things included in the game were suggestions from people taking part in the project. You can also suggest and give us ideas right now! We're just starting this project.

Release Date

We do not have an estimate release date for the moment since, we're trying to make the game off suggestions & ideas. However we plan on releasing the first beta of the mod somewhere near October 2017.

Alpha v0.1 Changes

  • New Features
    • Added Sprint Ability
      • Players can now press SHIFT (Changeable on the keyboard options) to sprint and move at a faster speed.
      • Limited Stamina that recharges when you stop sprinting.

Honestly seems like another one of those Half-Life to CoD mods. Not that i have seen any others, because i have not, this mod clearly shows signs of this.
The sprinting makes the player a virtual sanic. It can be used to break out of maps because of its extreme speed, and i dont think it fits Half-Life that well anyway. It also requires this to be used, because the moving speed is just more irritable now.

Not all of the changes are bad however. I quite like the egon gun slowdown but its rather extreme, something like 65% full speed would be more fitting. Pushable props are also seem quite nice.

You should take that mod into a different direction, fix most of the half-life's bugs, minorly overhaul some levels, make the viewmodels a tad more sexy. The current viewmodels are just so hd it doesnt fit the game anymore.

That's just my opinion though.

Yeah. Because adding sprint SUUUUURE makes Half-Life entirely like Call of Duty. Forget the perks, aim down sights, annoying community, stupid retarded paid DLC packs everywhere, lack of enemy variety and catastrophic gameplay design; sprint turns anything into Call of Duty! Logic!

I agree the models look a bit too HD though. I think the maps and other character models need to be overhauled too. Then again, there is a mod in the working that overhauls the maps themselves, forgot the name of the mod though. I think that if the developer of that mod combined with the one here, I think it would be the ideal "overhaul" since the entire game could be remade from scratch to match the HD models and have more modern/slightly more realistic gameplay mechanics and more features overall.

Mods that simply fix Half-Life bugs are already overdone at this point. There's Half-Life Update, Half-Life Map Fixes, people who do skin packs that fix model bugs (like the scientists buggy jaws, etc)... There's so many "bug fix" mods, it's out of control. Not to mention that it's the easiest kind. I think the direction this is going is better because at least there's new stuff in here.

Wanna created new maps or textures?Or only fix game bugs,problems and next?

This looks more like an addon than a mod. I've played Half-Life, countless times. I'm not going to play it again because of some slight tweaks.

Don't worry, I'll dearly credit the Sven Co-Op team for their assets :D
