After years of negotiation, the 12 leading military powers agree to halve the size of their armies and to either demolish or convert bases that are no longer in use.
Suddenly, an unknown terrorist organization known as WOLF (Worldwide Organized Liberation Front) has issued an attack towards multiple US bases and threatens to attack nearby cities using long range missiles.
A new attempt at retaliation fails and the WOLF Organisation carries out its threat on neighbouring towns, an attack causing 327 deaths and many more wounded.
The situation escalates.
After negotiations have broken down, the US government decides to make use of the NASF (National Anti-Terrorist Strike Force) in order to weaken the opponent from within by means of specially targeted acts of sabotage.
After five successful training years with the NASF, Roger McAllen begins his first mission behind enemy lines...

Installation is simple, simply extract the OPBTRemod 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 "opbt" inside you Half-Life installation folder along with any other
mod/steam-related folders you may have inside.
Restart Steam, "Operation Black Thunder - 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 opbt" to the end of the target bar.
Example would be "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\hl.exe -game opbt"
The mod also adds simple detail texturing, if not activated yet, type "r_detailtextures 1" and its counterpart into the console.
Hope you enjoy!
Operation Black Thunder, what an interesting mod.
It's rarely you get a military themed mod for Half-Life that DOESN'T get too close to the HECU or the Black Mesa Incident even.
But we got one.
OPBT is a pretty good mod, most of the level design was believable for a militaristic setting, and most of the gameplay stuff's ain't too bad either.
There was a few nonsense here and there like half of the turret sections (no, not just the electronical ones), really felt them when i played it in Hard a couple of days ago, but overall a pretty fine mod that i'm surprised got little attention when compared to other classics like Azure "Escort the" Sheep (joking, i like that mod too).
It even got custom weapons! With a silenced MP5k and a shotgun that is pretty powerful, even on Hard.
The recoil thing is a problem though, i can't believe it, but the MP5k, a SMG, is apparently better at long range than the M16, WHICH IS DESIGNED FOR SUCH RANGES.
I mean seriously, try to fire the M16 or the M249, that recoil system is straight out bollocks.
Basically when you fire, the recoil doesn't jump your aim up, it jumps the weapon's aim up, so you have to aim the crosshairs down since the weapon is firing up above and beyond the crosshairs.
Really screws you over in medium-far range battles. REALLY.
The objective system is nice, gives you direction and while setting up a bit of story to whatever it is you're doing to cripple WOLF.
The ending is severe WTF material though, you'll see what i mean (or already know what i mean).
BTW, if you're all wondering why i didn't just upload it to the addons section of the already existing OPBT mod page, it's because it's inaccessible.
Figured why not make a new mod page instead of doing a bunch of hurdles uploading it there.
Anyway, yeah, that's all i can say here.
I hope all of you enjoy the remod.
Thanks for reading.
