Come celebrate Sven Co-op's anniversary with us by joining the servers and make sure to give \"svencoop1\" a replay for old times' sake. We'll be there! For the nostalgic or the curious, the original website from 1999 is available here. This is also where you can still find the original beta 0.8!
As a lot of you may know, Sven Co-op started as a Half-Life modification created by Daniel \"Sven Viking\" Fearon in 1999. At the time it was nothing more than a single custom-made Half-Life level, svencoop.bsp, which had had NPC enemies enabled by the setting of a cvar. As no development kit had been released for modders at the time, there was no custom code. Gradually people started joining Sven Viking's project, contributing the skills they had in programming, level design, modelling, and so on. A lot, if not most, of the contributors were teenagers. The mod's popularity kept growing, and a vibrant community arose, with people creating custom levels, models and other content on their own initiative. 153554b96e
