Nice, but not possible.

Valve has not released the source code to the full game, just the libraries that contain the game code. The launcher would need to be modified, and the code for that still belongs solely to Valve.

In other words, it's impossible to make a Half-Life mod completely standalone. After all, it is a mod. If the team could do it, I'm sure they would, but... they can't.

You can run any HL mod on WON, the old network that existed before Steam, but you'll find little to no support for it. As for not needing Half-Life installed... you do need Half-Life installed, so I think you may be a little confused there.

What is a mod?
Mod, short for modification is a term generally applied to a customised (or altered) computer game made by the general public. A mod can range from a total conversion with new gameplay, look and feel through to minor alterations which could include new models, weapons, maps etc. There are plenty of types and tons of styles, a mod can be anything the creators want it to be.

Purpose
The purpose of a mod is to change the game and add an extra dimension of replay ability and excitement. Mods have even being known to outshine the original game, and playing such a mod may become even more common than playing the unmodded original. They increase the lifecycle and sales of games, benefiting both the players and the publishers who both get more bang for their buck!
Learn the basics before making such stupid statements. No offense though.

I know... But it's just a suggestion... That would make this community even bigger...

But yeah... There is 1 bad thing... If they did that... They should rip parts out of the original HL game... And isnt thal ilegal?

baka. This must be the old WON HL with ESF already installed packed in a setup.
ESF doesnt support WON anymore since its dead. Also you cannot play online without steam.
Besides, distributing HL through the net like that is concidered warez and thus illegal.

WHATSOEVER, take my word as a development member when I say: we're NOT going to make a non steam version. Never ever. End of story
