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.

What's so annoying is that if your not lucky at the beginning of the residue processing chapter (crowbar getting replaced with like 1 tripmine) makes it impossible to progress unless you reload your save for a different outcome.
If you get like 2 tripmines you have to use your brain where to place them for least damage. On the beginning of the chapter you have to break a vent, then in the middle you have to break another vent. If you wasted the other tripmine then your basically softlocked aswell.

Yes, I mentioned this below reagarding beginning of the game. I completely forgot about this one since I stopped playing during Power Up - the soldiers keep spawning like crazy!

Mod seems great but be careful when you first get teleported to xen right before **** hits the fan at the facility if you have LoreFriendly disabled and a barnacle happens to spawn and grab hold of you, your game will glitch when you get teleported back and you won't be able to move much, doesn't really matter though as a quick reset will get you back and ready to go.

Anyways. If you guys are seeing those things that don't give you anything:
Those are called ammo canisters. If you play half life multiplayer you know what this is:
Ammo canisters gives you what the other guy had.

They also appear in single player during the Xen chapters and give you a random selection of ammunition.

I'm having some trouble. The game is running completely vanilla. When I open the console, it says:
"Unknown command: VModEnable"

Can anyone help me with this please?

Just launch it as a standard mod. Steam supports that. It even adds a quick launch shortcut to your library or desktop (or both).

Agreed. It's only playable via Steam.
