Half-Life Rally is a racing modification for the highly acclaimed and everlastingly popular game, Half-Life by Valve Software. Unlike most mods currently being made for the Half-Life Engine, the goal of HL-Rally is not to blast your enemy to smitherines with relentless repetition prone to excessive cheating and hacks, but to race cars and be the first and fastest across the finish line, out-running your opponents in any way possible to gain a few milliseconds on them.
And if you cant win straight away, fear not, as within a couple of races you can save up your credits salary to upgrade your car with a plethora of parts and options, even buying new cars, or trading cars with your fellow racers and enthusiasts. The game takes on a whole new edge when it comes to strategically spending your cash and keeping your winning record rolling. Sophisticated statistics, profiles and your on-line garage are centrally stored on our master servers, so you'll never be without your custom modified cars! (Requires Internet Connection)
For the car enthusiasts and modellers our there, anyone can submit their newly created car to our car-selectors who can make the car available to everyone from the HL-Rally master servers. Simply join a game and select your new car, and the HL-Rally Game-server will download the car model and specifications, and send it to all of the players in the game at the end of the current race! Car packs will of course be available from our Modelling Site: Under the Hood, to assist with keeping everyone updated!
In addition to online game modes, you can also play against our fiendishly clever computer opponents who should provide quite a challenge to even a seasoned driver. In addition to computer controlled opponents you can also race 'vs Clock' in time-trials and car-performance testing modes.
This update updates the dedicated server from 1.0 to 1.1
