Gold Source (also known as Gold Src) is a heavily-modified version of the original Quake 1 engine, that powered some of the most critically acclaimed games of it's day:

  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Team Fortress Classic
  • Counter-Strike
  • Day of Defeat
  • and many more.

A powerful and versatile engine for it's time, it helped propel modding forward quite a bit with its mod development tools. And even though it's already 10+ years old, it's mod projects are still going strong.

No. GoldSrc is a heavily modified Quake 1 engine, and Valve has stated that only about 50 lines of code were taken from the Quake 2 engine.

Just because its old doesn't mean its not fun. This engine is the kicka@s engine of the 1998"s. I salute Valve and GabeN. I love Goldsrc!
