FInd your way to an area with a faulty electrical pylon.
If you can manage to get the power on, you can kill everything in or very near the water.
Don’t take too long though!
One of the things that has struck me about replaying Half-Life is the chapter titles.
They are such an important part of the game yet they seem to get so little attention.
What they do is help divide the game into neat little chunks and this in itself is important but they also help frame those chunks into distinct elements.

“The story takes place in Russia at the secret plant called “Object E7” or “Black Star” at the same time as the unexpected consequences at Black Mesa. G-Man was planning to organize three incidents of portal opening originally.
First one – at Black Mesa Complex. Second one – at Black Star plant. The third place is unfortunately unknown. But thanks to the fact that the cascade resonator at Black Star was out of order, the planned incident didn’t take place there.
Object E7 is a laboratory complex researching anomalous materials and organisms. Its academic adviser is Dr.Victor Shmurghe. He has connected directly with G-Man. The protagonist is a political prisoner who was moved from a jail to Object E7. His main purpose was to test a prototype of the new protection suit H.E.V.5000. But he could escape during usual testing by chance.”
As Gordon Freeman rides a monorail in the Materials Transport section of Black Mesa, he learns from a security guard that he must ride to the High Altitude Launch Center to launch a satellite, which the Lambda Team can use to reverse the effects of the Resonance Cascade.
He also discovers the HECU’s true hatred for him, as well as larger reinforcements: sandbag bunkers with rapid-fire sniper rifles, mounted machine gun turrets (manual and automated), and even mounted rocket launchers.
After going round in circles, it seems, for a while, he goes up several elevators and at last reaches the surface again. At the launch site, he sends the rocket up into orbit, and regretfully goes back below ground.

Sometimes it’s easy to miss the obvious questions. In fact, I am very surprised I haven’t asked this before. If I have then I must have missed it when I looked through the Poll Question List view.
We all know what we like but do we really know what others like?
Of course, a good mod should include aspects of all of the choices but there’s no denying we probably prefer one style more than another.
Which one do you prefer?
