Alright folks, I won't continue this project because of lack of time. I won't make a server because it would be online ~3 hours a day. If someone made a server and picked up on the project, I would gladly join and help.

Hi
I'm VERY surprised (and somewhat disappointed) that nobody has recreated Half-Life in Minecraft yet. With custom spawners, new mobs and command blocks, possibilities are now much better than in previous versions. So, I tried to recreate HL myself, but due to lack of time, I give you what I managed to built yet.This is a playable map from the end of the tram ride up to first houndeye encounter (no mobs though, because I want them to come with advancedly-coded spawners).

Current issues:
- only one beacon light beam is clearly visible, the other ones are barely visible, I hope this is a bug that will be fixed
- glass around scientists (villagers) are placeholder for some invisible blocks (so they don't walk around). As I originally planned not to use a texture pack, so the map is as much vanilla as possible, I wanted to use MCEdited invisible ladders, but they are glitchy.
- infinite redstone loops tend to stop going when reloading the map, dunno why (very rarely though).

Cheats are enabled so you can switch to Creative. I would be very glad if someone or team of some poeple took on this map and creature it further, or try to recreate their own HL map from scratch.

I can confirm that this works for 12w41b: I tried it earlier.
Nice map, but it's easy to lose direction. Maybe use /me in the command blocks for direction/NPC conversation? I dunno.
Still, good job on it so far.

just in time for black mesa too. XD

isn't there something you can do with commands now that disables all mob spawning, but doesn't include eggs? You could use that for predictable mobs, rather than peaceful mode. In particular skeletons retextured as the soldiers would be amazing.

@up
I actually would like witches as soldiers - they have strong ranged attacks and look like villagers - just like in HL where they are both humans. Also, they don't burn in sunlight (Surface Tension...) and you can't give a skeleton a helmet with spawn eggs.

Well I don't have much to say, but really, good job! It would be silly if nobody ever made this. When 1.4 comes out I will download it.
My parkour map. Do you have the skill?

I can't finish the map on my own, that's too much work. I also can't host a server because it would be online only a few hours per day. Maybe someone can form a team of people, then I will gladly join.

Half-Life 2 is much harder than HL1 to recreate - all those airboats, choppers... impossibru!

I'm playing this in 1.4.2 and having some severe crashing problems after the resonance cascade. (gets to unplayable right around dodging the 3 fire charge turrets)

but I must say that was an epic resonance cascade. Perfectly recreated.

I wonder if instead of scientists and retinal scanners, you could use custom trades with a villager wanting x item for a button.

some minor things you might fix:
