History

Colony 42 is the latest incarnation of JeffMOD's Science-fiction modification, and by far the most developed. The original, known as USS Black Mesa, was scrapped because JeffMOD could not, at the time, understand how to make HL change levels properly. The next incarnation, USS Bravo, was more developed, but lacked a good storyline, and was scrapped. JeffMOD's mapping skills improved vastly over time, but he still wanted to make a science fiction mod. Finally, a storyline was developed placing the player onboard a space station, with many more planned areas of interest than the previous versions. Spirit of Half-life was chosen to be used as a base, and High-definition compatibility was a priority from day 1.
