"Reissues" is a community compilation of 30 single player Half-Life 1 levels authored by a mix of various designers. Each one has created their own unique, self-contained chapter: you'll spelunk into ancient Egyptian tombs, scale mile-high cliff sides, and fight your way through several clever re-imaginings of Black Mesa - among other exciting setpieces!

Why did we bother squeezing this last bit of mileage out of a decade-old game engine? Because Half-Life 1 offers a unique feel and aesthetic that makes it a timeless classic; because great gun fights remain great fun fights, even without shiny next-gen graphics; because we love what we do, and we hope you'll love it too.

Hmm.. Bit of a minor snag with the new version of spirit we decided to use. It fixed a lot of other major bugs, but unfortunately, this one slipped through. :(

This is a great MOD everyone HAS TO DOWNLAOD. I just played through several maps and my eyes dropped on the floor . It's amazing ! Pure detail . Interactivity ( in some maps ) . I even spend some time looking on the walls :))

It's Safer Here sky-of-doom bugfix:

r2d2rigo from the Spirit of Half-Life forums found a fix for the It's Safer Here skybox bug;

1. Start the map.
2. Quicksave.
3. Quickload.
4. Behold! 3D skybox without HOM that makes you wanna go on a killing spree!

Rejoice and thank r2d2rigo.

Great map(s) although I have some ideas to improve.

-The It's Safer Here map, at the end could you make the turret a little less powerful. I had a really hard time with that and got fed up with it.

-Loved the textures and all but, sometimes got abit of lagg. You might want to add some hint brushes (I have a new computer and still can't handle it sometimes)?

Overall Great map. 5/5

i haven't started playing any of the levels yet, but the intro area is superb and a superb idea. the only thing i would change is move the text lower to the portal for each map and make the text nicer to read. (you could even use fancey brushed holograms/distort for the each maps title if you wanted.)

the animated texture showing the portal to each map was a nice idea, as is the general design of the intro area; i like how some portals are smashed too.

Anwyay, i can't wait to try all the maps. i'll try to do different reviews for each section and post a link in here maybe rather than spamming your map comments with all my jabbering!

Great work putting this all together!
