Half-Life Mods





Ghost Face
Half-Life 1 that is..

The Specialists- Matrix style, extremely fun. Mostly Deathmatch/FFA
Natural Selection- Marines vs Aliens, you get XP and get upgrades/evolve. Freaking sweet!
Sven Coop- Half-Life with (duh) Coop. Play on tons of custom or orignal maps. Worth downloading and playing.

Which do you like?

(Add some more to the list!)

I personally liked DOD (day of defeat) the most.
ChaosMike
I LOVED playing TFC alot. I am pro with medic and love jump maps on them. I always loved the maps Axl's TFC server had (too ba they're gone now Sad )

Sven Coop was another fun game to play. I love coop games, and mixing HL and coop made Sven ideal for a mod Smile

I forgot what other fun mods i used to play, but they usually had tiny communities, however still great communities.

Half Life mods rock Cool
Ghost Face
Yeah, Half-Life Multiplayer was really fun.

Especially with the creation of the hook and rune mods Very Happy
elyo-luk
only this mods ? lol
i no play with the hl1 but... STEVEN COOP
system
Well... Counterstrike is sort of a mod for HL isnt it? Anyway.. Been playing it for a while, but imo it very boring... To be honest it's just the same thing over and over again.
Ghost Face
Yeah, Counter Strike originated as a mod for Half-Life, but now it's a game separately.

Ever tried surf maps? Cause I pretty much own on them Smile
DeFwh
i play counter strike 1.6
Ghost Face
It's posts like that that kill good threads. Come on man!

I have not downloaded any mods for half-live 2 yet. They do not terminate the anti-cheat agreement does it. Does any one know where I can get any mods and are they free. What about bots, does HL2 supprot that. Just alot of questions. Thanks for your help if you can give it.
Ghost Face
Yes, HL2 does support bots as does Counter-Strike:Source. Yes, mods are free and you can download them through Steam. (I wouldn't rely on them if they were located anywhere else.) Go to you games tab in Steam and dl them there. (the dull looking ones)
chizeled
Thanks for the info ghost face. I will check it out now. Where can I find the bots, is it a option I have to enable in the game? I like to get leg up on the competition. I need to get a little better.

Heh, don't we all?

In CS:S you can select bots by starting a new game and checking the bots option.. you can select the amount, which team they join, their difficulty level, and tag (optional). It shouldn't be too hard to find.


Yeah, I like Gary's mod.. sheesh that guy's a genius. Lol, I'll like spawn in a few zombie's and then I'll turn on the AI and I'll shottie their faces off! Twisted Evil Very Happy

I personally liked Day of defeat the most game.
DeFwh
Well day or defeat used to be a mod but is now like cs 1.6 independent because of day of defeat source
Dragate
Steam games I play: CS 1.6, Condition zero and Half-life (1) and tried half life 2 demo

I think, personally, that mods take away the point of the game... I'm sure if you were really bored and stuff a few mods will be fun to play on on some random server... but If you are getting that bored of the game I think you should stop playing it for a while, and trust me when you get back into it you'll understand why...

When you use mods the whole point of the game is diluded... LIke in cs... cod mode roll the dice thingys and unfair advantages and stuff... Sometime onlike superhero mods the higher level dudes just pwn the new commers... not fun at all!!!

Also the game of cs and stuff is supposed to be sort of like a simulation, but doing something like distorting game elements really.. jsut isn't right like hooks... GEEZ people flying around that never get hit cause they are jsut flying around... You know what I say... The more additions you add to the game, the more trouble... You turn on ff guess waht happnes.. everyone knows the random idiot pops up and tk's everyone just for the fun of it cause, he's never gonna come back...

*sigh* that's my rant about half life mods and stuff... That is just my personal comment though feel free to argue... O.o

In germany, Counterstrike is the top mod.
At least where I live. Me and my friends played Sven Co-op for a while, but then went back to CS.
chizeled
I will give the bot option a try. I would like to know if there are any free mods for CS out there. Any URLs would help. What is the most popular CS mod out there? That is the one I would like to get my hands on. Thanks for all your help. This a really good thread.
faker_phil
To respond to your post, Dragate:

I think exactly the same way. Take Superhero mod, for example. Adding unlimited ammo, getting revived when dying, hooks, having double mp5's that shoot like crazy... There's just too much stuff that takes the fun out of the game. Talking about mods, the Warcraft III mod is kinda good.
Still, as you said, people that played on the server for longer just pwn the crap out of newbies. They even pwn the crap out of pro's that just came on the server.

Currently, I play BF2 and regular CS 1.6. Those are classic, standard, and just balanced and perfect. Except for BF2, EA really rocks at screwing games over and bringing out patches for patches Wink

@chizeled: This post and the one of Dragate was about Counterstrike 1.6, based on Half-Life 1. It has nothing to do with Counterstrike Source and Gost Face's post. Since I don't play CSS I dont know where to get mods for that, sry.
photon
counter strike obviously.. but for some reason i prefer cs 1.5 than 1.6. also played day of defeat a couple of times and though it was great..
emperorkhan
counter strike is a classic
Deadfisk
Counter Strike is a classic, it is the start of seriously thinking about how a mod can exstend the life of a game. CS made all FPS games after it more edit-able, because users want to MOD / map-edit
Ghost Face
Yeah, I think the invention of the amx and amxx admin controls add a lot of...well.. control. You can manipulate tons of stuff. I guess you'd just have to have admin in 1.6 to know Smile

To chizeled:
I think you might want to just google Half-Life 2 mods since Counter-Strike originated as a mod from HL. Try that Very Happy

Now I'm going to go make a thread about HL2 mods..

Postscript 2 faker_phil: Geist Gesischte. That's Ghost Face in German, right?

Dang, so close.. Yeah, it's confusing cause like there are those forms of Gesischt and they mean history, face, and story.. Silly Americans! Heh.

i'd have to say that day of defeat 1.3 is hands down the best half-life mod.
counter-strike was revolutionary, but its team basis became weak after a few years. DoD is very much team oriented, 1 player can not carry an entire team, regardless of what weapon/map is played. respawn and priming grenades are probably the things that stand out the most, and help make it better than the rest.

Yeah, the things I like about DoD is that you can cook grenades and go into prone position. With the exception of the fascination of WWII itself, I can't find any cool about it. The reason you can respawn in it is because all it is capture the flag whereas in CS there are specific missions. (There are also server side mods that allow respawning Smile)
exarkun
Can I ask where I can downloads the mods you all are talking about? It seemed interseting enough and I haven't tried any one of those yet.
Ghost Face
They should be in Steam under your games tab. They'll be a dulled white which means you haven't downloaded them yet. Double-Click to download! Very Happy

Postscript: If that doesn't work you can always google- free download half life 1 mods

Hope that helps Smile
faker_phil
Well, if you don't have steam, but are playing CS 1.6, then BUY the game! Otherwise, the games will be in steam to download. It should look like this:



The mods you have are in white, the others just doubleclick. If you purchased Half-Life 2, that game and its mods will be on there as well.
MrMaddog
Definitely my favorite HL mod of all time is TFC, cause it's so much more than the usual deathmatch. Smile

Used to play it a lot until they first moved it to Steam (didn't had broadband back then), so I played other Team Fortress type mods on other game engines like UT.

I've gotten DSL and a copy of HL2, but everytime I tried to use Steam it keeps crashing on me. Sad I know I have to upgrade my system to XP real soon, which I hope would help prevent the constant crashes...

Which is a shame because I'm looking forward to the Source version of TF coming out! Very Happy

Team Fortress Classic was my favorite of all of them. Wow, all the memories of conc jumping and rocket jumping. So many trick maps. It was all so fun.

A close second of course is Counter Strike. Another awesome mod for Half-Life.

I haven't played these games for so long. I used to be really into them years ago.
Miniwood
What about Single Player mods? They Hunger was fantastic, blasting zombies. There's a Source version on the way too.
