This mod randomizes almost everything in Half-Life to give it a new, fresh way to play. You could get a hornet gun instead of the crowbar. A headcrab could be an assassin. Anything is possible, and no matter how many times you've played Half-Life, you'll never see what's coming.

There are a few options that allow you to change what's randomized. Check the advanced tab of the options menu for these, or use the console commands.

  • Lore Friendly (loreFriendly) - Waits to spawn certain enemies until the time they normally appear in-game. For instance, with this enabled you won't see HECU soldiers until "We've got hostiles."
  • Random Sentences (randomSentences) - Self explanatory. NPCs can and will say anything.
  • Random Gore (randomGibs) - Randomizes gibs and blood color for enemies...and a few other things as well...
  • Random Text (randomTitles) - Most text displayed on the hud, such as chapter titles, credits, and instructions will be completely random.

when i first used this mod, everything was going fine until i tried looking behind me and theres some sort of barrier that makes me not able to look back. ive tried reopening the game, changing the camera + video settings, stuff like that. i even did a test in actual half life and i could look freely there. whats the problem?

Think there will be any randomizer mod for the Half-Life 2 series? I had fun recording, and playing through this mod as a little thing to show off this mod and all what it is capable of.

But if there is no plans for the Half-Life 2 series, that's fine.

I'm not as familiar with Half-Life 2's codebase. Also I've been working on stuff other than mods so if I did make a hl2 randomizer it would be later when I'm not busy. There are randomizers for source engine games that randomize sounds and textures though (maybe models too?), so you might want to try those out.

Also please link to any videos of you playing it!

Seems reasonable enough. I have no experiences on making mods; therefore, I can understand the large difference in engines used for Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

(Edited)
But regarding the videos, I dunno if I (or you) can do a playlist in the video's category. Although, at the time of doing the recordings, they where supposed to be small funny clips of the mod, but I ended up making it a series in most parts. However, I just checked the video's category and I believe you might have to do the video uploads (unless I'm blind as hell), so if you wanna give the video portion a shot, here you go: Youtube.com (Yes, I know they have a watermark, I just used something I had close by instead of setting up OBS properly)

Anyway, have a great day/night, Sockman. Thank you for this mod and I'll see what I can do with the videos.
