MapTap: Beta Release 2.4.0 RC8

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Beta version RC7 was supposed to correctly detect the half-life executable location. It didn’t.

I have tested this version and it worked correctly for me.

I will test it a little more and if there are no reports of issues, then this is likely to be the actual release candidate.

Deep Down

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Firmly sticking to the Half Life 2 formula, Deep Down is a new entry in the story of Alyx and Gordon as they continue the hunt for Combine Advisors in the area surrounding White Forest.

Combine Forces, Zombies and Antlions lie between them and the brooding menace deep below the earth that will test both their skills further than ever before.

If you miss the Half Life 2 formula and are tired of waiting patiently for Episode 3 then this mod is for you. Featuring new gameplay elements, fiendish puzzles and blistering action, Deep Down will provide your Half Life 2 fix (well some of it at least).

Coach – Half-Life

for Half-Life

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Starting off in a caged-off room, you need to get the tram working and then follow it along through a couple of electrical and direction puzzles.

Don’t expect it too easy though, there’s a few soldiers whose sole purpose in life is to stop you.

Built 12 years ago and only now seeing the light of day, this map ends in the top floor bathroom.
