100 Summer Days of Nostalgia

23rd May 2011

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

In celebration of Gilfrarry (Thanks man, can’t thank you enough) reformatting and uploading all the Half-Life 1 maps and mods into my format and onto my server, I have decided to run the 100 SUMMER DAYS OF NOSTALGIA Starting 1st June and running for 100 days I will update a Half-Life 1 map or mod every day.

They will appear on the frontpage, but will eventually be back-dated to their original publication date.

I needed to update the posts anyway and this seems like a good way of doing it.

In addition, the top 5 commenters who post the most proper reviews & Recommendations for each of the maps and mods will be entered into a draw to win the next Half-Life release. Yes, I know we don’t even know what it’s called (Ep3 or HL3) but I have NO DOUBT it WILL be released, so feel comfortable offering this prize.

If Valve announce they are not releasing something then the winner can have a subsitute game.

I will decide what is or isn’t a proper review, so don’t think you can enter something like “Nice map” etc.

If it is succesful I may run a similar concept next Summer.

Please feel free to post your thoughts or comments.

    Looking forward to participating in this. I love HL1 content (and have for about 11 years) so this is right up my alley. I’ve yet to win any of your other giveaways, so hopefully writing 100 reviews will be my ticket to winning!

  2. This could be the best thing i’ve ever seen on this site.I love this idea, because some of HL1 maps here don’t have download links or proper reviews.And nostalgia is always great.

  3. oh, this is going to be fun. before Phillip swapped servers he had over 400 half life 1 mods and maps. now this summer we get to revisit old places and shoot old friends. hehe.

    in 1998 was off work for 5 months after a heart failure so purchased a pc discovered half life and never looked back,i am sure being so engrossed in trying to finish half life it helped my speedy recover so looking forward to some nostalgia

  6. I think this is a great way to get all those lost HL1 mods back up onto the site and with some reviews to boot.

    Just another reason to prolong my procrastination.

    Great. Have you more NEW hl1 mods and maps?

    1. A few, which I will be posting this week until they finish, but this is about the old ones.

    When does the 100 days start?

      1. Oh wow. I just looked at the GIANT banner that says “100 Days of Nostalgia! June 1st to September 8th!” on the main page.

        Wow. Facepalm. It’s one of those things that you don’t notice that when you do makes you feel like a idiot.

        1. I was thinking of making a sarcastic comment, but then remembered the hundreds of times I have also asked questions where the answer is obvious.

  9. I love you for this. 😀

    Love it man, I am really glad Phillip is still celebrating the HL1 mods. I just want to say that my link above has a list of all the HL1 mods I finished, if you are behind the quota you can add some from there too.
    Also I have myself made 2 HL missions and I hope they get spotlighted on planetphillip someday! I’ve also written like a million reviews on mods I’ve played so this is gonna be fun!
    Thanks again PlanetPhillip!

    Just heard about this, it’s a great idea, and I’m always one for Half-Life nostalgia! I’ll do my best to go back and play these mods, some of which I’m sure I’ve already reviewed and forgotten.
