I'm in the mood for some great HL2/Source based single player mods, i really like total conversion mods, but will look at anything, any suggestions?

I just played 1187, which was great!

Elements of War: 1337 Board.
Works with EVERY single player(and mp) game or mod on the Source, Gold Source, Quake, or beyond engine.

http://www.moddb.com/mods/elements-of-war/downloads/1337-board-v7

EoW:1337 Board is a hotkeys menu adding such hotkeys as third person, +Attack2andAttack, +DuckJump, toggle hud on/off, countless cheats, and more.

I always recommend:
Awakening
Calamity
City 7: Toronto Conflict
Coastline to Atmosphere
Combine Combat
Combine Destiny
Dangerous World
Das Roboss
Eye of the Storm
Gateways
The Great Forever Tomorrow
Joutomaa
Minerva
Mission Improbable
Mistake of Pythagoras
Offshore
Old School
Penetration
Ravenholm
Research & Development
Riot Act
Strider Mountain

Dear Esther and Korsakovia are different, but also very good.


Some mods run fine as-is. Some require tweaking to get them to run. Others have missing models and textures. Before trying a mod, you need to look at the Mod Fix (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1289845) thread. If you have any problems or questions, just post in that thread.

You used the word great so:

Minerva Metastasis
Reasearch and Development

Otherwise play multiplayer. there are so many great maps in multiplayer that blow every other single player game out of the water.

True, and i love multiplayer, however i have played/am playing all of the good, or at least populated multiplayer source mods, currently i'm simply looking for some good single player with good story line and hopefully total conversion or at least something more then just "maps" for HL2, etc.

I always recommend:
Awakening
Calamity
City 7: Toronto Conflict
Coastline to Atmosphere
Combine Combat
Combine Destiny
Dangerous World
Das Roboss
Eye of the Storm

Actually, since you said "great" I'd have to say I enjoyed Calamity as much during my second play-through as I did the first.

City 7 and Dangerous World were two my faves, but I haven't played them through a second time, yet. (And I have to ditto Hi2u's recommends.)

Nightmare House 2 is an incredible mod, and very scary and atmospheric.

When I'm looking for mods I check out the hall of fame (http://www.planetphillip.com/browse/readers-recommendations/?t=25&rating_limit=4.5&rating_order=desc//) on PlanetPhillip. There is generally a good amount of community feedback on what the mods offer.

Of them I have played,

Mission Improbable
Minerva: Metastasis Trilogy
Eye Of The Storm: Episode 1
Riot Act


I found them all to be very enjoyable and very bug free.

Might be something that will pique your interest.

Mission Improbable doesn't seem to have any bugs.
Minerva: Metastasis does require a patch from everything I've heard (patch available in the Mod Fix thread, which I linked to previously).
Eye of the Storm, for me, had missing models and textures (several others either had no problems, or bypassed them using the fixes for Episode 2 mods listed in the thread).
Riot Act didn't seem to have any bugs.

Minerva metastasis is offerd as the "latest patch" on planetphillip and it's mirrors. I'm in the dark whether it's up to speed with other sites.

Other mod thread is great Gorpie, thanks for all your work.

Planet Phillip's links still arn't updated, so get it from either:

Fixed Minerva Client (http://www.hylobatidae.org/minerva/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=330) - Minerva forums
Fixes For Broken Mods (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=15662934&postcount=51) - Steam forums

Just to let everybody know, I am waiting for the official patch from Adam.

The single player Source mods worth playing in my opinion are Minerva and Nightmare House 2.

How do I install a mod? Also, can somebody tell me where can I get these mods. I have found many sites that have HL2 mods but I'm afraid of viruses.
Do you know a good clean site?

You may find mods at
http://www.planetphillip.com/
http://www.moddb.com/
http://halflife2.filefront.com/

You can also try other places like www.FilePlanet.com or www.FileShack.com .

I think all of these do virus checks, but to be on the safe side scan any downloaded files yourself prior to installing.

I generally go to planetphillip myself. Pretty comphrehensive collection imho.

Usually there are instructions when you are on the webpage where the mod is advertised. I believe that all you have to do is extract the mod file to your Sourcemods folder.

Example: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods

I have linked in planetphillips instructions here (http://www.planetphillip.com/how-to/#installingamod)

Hope this helps you out.



Edit: totally ninja'd by pizzahat. I doff my hat to you sir.

I don't think I've gotten a virus from any of the mods or maps I've downloaded (they're automatically scanned)--whether they were hosted at moddb, planetphillip, or halflife2.net. (Some of them redirect you to fileplanet or atomicgamer or other site.)

Granted, I haven't played 100% of the mods/maps out there, but I have played almost 150 mods and about 180 maps.
