Hey there folks! I've been collecting Half-Life mods for years and I've (As expected) came across a bunch of mods that either don't have a working download link anymore or are not findable anywhere. I'm posting the full list here with all the info I could find for each missing mod. If you've got in hand one (Or more) of these mods, don't hesitate to let me know!

I actually still have Mrpo's corridor and dormitories maps, but not the wad they need to run. (I think this was a combination of textures from Blue-Shift and Opposing Force)

As for the others, Jessie is currently working her way through the entire map vault on stream, and noting those that are missing. Any older ones that have not been recovered by now are potentially lost forever.

Yeah, I'm afraid most of them are lost forever, unless somebody archived them (Which I highly doubt so, but never say never). I have gone thru the entire (Half-Life & Opposing Force) map vault last year and noted those that have a missing / broken download link as well, all of them are listed here. As for the Mrpo's maps (Or any other map/mod you have from the list) if you can upload them somewhere I'd greatly appreciate that. ☺

It is sad. :( How many talent gone forever...
Posted 1 week ago2020-06-25 20:55:17 UTC Post #344461
Note: Blackop Mission is still under development. Most likely what you owned was only a minor demo release.
I'm his beta tester and last I talked with him, idk like 6 months ago he said he was still working on it.

I still got Cleaner's Adventures Begin on my external HD. But guess what the Hard Drive is giving me a bad indexing error and has bad clusters as of today when I wanted to open my archives just for this topic here.. I hope I will be able to fix it considering I got plenty more archived things on it that would be lost for ever if I can't fix it. :(
Pretty sure I still got Panic at Black Mesa at that broken HD too.

Rest goes only as far as saying I might still have xyz burned on CD's.

Infinity
Xen Crystal
Secret Santa 2011 on broken HD
TWHL for the "Xen Trasportation"

While it's sad I don't think it's a huge loss here with few exceptions. Simply considering that most mentioned maps were merely created for various competitions which often just contained graphics but no actual game play.
I still got a CD with maps that aren't even known anymore to modern hl1 players as they vanished in the late 90s not long after Half-Life's actual release but even here stands to say that most maps were tiny like fighting against an Apache on a roof top with a mounted RPG and so on, so nothing special. I'd like to think that the community did an epic job in preserving up to 80% of the true Gems out there. 18% were junk and not worth saving and 2% like Gargantua Mod Chapter One were simply overlooked casualties.

I have 33 gigs of mods and maps stored on my HDD, collected from various sites from different years, and 23 gigs of regular "non-missing" mods as my personal collection intended for playing.

Funnily enough, none of the mods mention here are present on my collection, I will re-check to see again nevertheless. Some of them sound very familiar though "Dormitories" , "Water Drilling" , "Flat" etc. It is possible that I downloaded but deleted them after discovering their lack of quality. I also remember searching "Can Headcrabs Float?" a long time without success, looked well made.

I agree with 23-down, many of the lost projects were very low quality beginner maps and mods. Still, I would love to discover them for preservation purposes.

Hm sounds interesting.. Perhaps cap some screenshots of the files names in list format.
I myself am a collector. You might own some mods that I myself was looking for - for a long time, mods that are equally lost but not considered right now.
Posted 1 week ago2020-06-25 21:51:28 UTC Post #344464
Yeah, most of the mods listed in the first/second post are probably low-medium quality but I still would love to have/play them for archival purpose, even if they are really bad or bugged. Just to say, I've played all of the ~20 Mr. Kraps maps from lambda-force that are basically one big room with some random enemies and items across the map with some little changes here and there.

EDIT 1:

Also @23-down, if you are a collector as well, you might be interested in my massive list of mods I've documented and downloaded:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1V8Cjc40P9w1Jn-cbekbmzncLZgDiQbro

EDIT 2: Was quite interested to see what was the size of my main "mods" folder, turns out it's over +99 gigabytes

I think that a lot of talent is gone, not by the quality of their work but for them be pioneers in the HL modding community. ;)
Posted 1 week ago2020-06-25 23:05:09 UTC Post #344466
The problem is, I left the filenames exactly as the authors gave them, all of them are tested but most of them are unpacked. There are countless valve.rars and folders simply titled "hl". There is no way to know what they contain without playing them all over again.

It is a chore to comb through them but I'll do some digging anyway, check the liblist to see the names at least. Even though there are maps as old as from 1998, I don't remember playing anything from your list. It also doesn't help that most mods have or had, very generic names.

I wish a thread like this was created sooner, I cleaned up a huge chunk of my collection a couple of months ago, deleted every badly made project that I wouldn't play again.

Damn, that's sad to hear. I made a similar list several months ago and posted it on the TWHL's Discord server but it wasn't 100% complete and it didn't have the bits of info that I included in this one. Luckily, all of the rare mods that I could find and recover are secured in a dedicated hard disk. I hope to see at least one or two mods from the list recovered as well

Really? I remember those maps! Mrpo was my old account! Do you mind if i have a download of those? I would really appreciate that.

I won't be keeping it on my drive forever, so grab it now and put it somewhere safe. Why not reupload it if they're your maps @Cabo. :D

Clickity!

Well... bajs (created by Lassse, twhl-vault-2104.zip, originally published on TWHL, download link is not working)
I think you can safely ignore that one, you're likely not missing out on anything. In mine and Lassse's language bajs means poop. When I was a stupid 13-year-old I had a TWHL account that got banned (with good reason) and I only commented on four map vault items. It so happens that one was on this map. My comment was simply "suck". I don't know if I meant that the map sucks or if I meant "sigh" ("suck" in Swedish).
