The Great Escape

for Half-Life 2

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

Another entry for a very old mapping competition. I am sure you will realize that this didn’t win!

You start off in a prison cell and things just get worse.

Can you survive the final test?

Lvl0-0-Rebuild

for Half-Life 2

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

You find yourself in an alley that leads to a small trainstation.

From there you need to follow the clues and reach a specific point.

Be careful because your way is blocked at certain points and the use of the airboat is recommended, although not required.

Prison

for Half-Life 2

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

This was an entry inthe Source Modification Centre’s Mapping Competition 2.

It’s a very strange one and requires a little lateral thinking.

Veiw the screenshots before you commit yourself to downloading and playing.

Poll Question 132 – Copyright Music in Mods?

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

As I was working earlier this week I got messaged by a modder (who is gonna release a very cool EP2 mod soon), asking me what I thought about a particular band’s music and including it in a mod.

It’s a great question because it’s been done hundreds of times before but it’s never really talked about.

Of course, technically it’s wrong but like lots of things in real life, it’s almost accepted.

Research And Development

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Research and Development is a puzzle-centric mod for Half-Life 2: Episode Two featuring an unarmed player but plenty of violent mayhem.

The player has NO weapons and there is no shooting at all. However that doesn’t mean you can’t kill things, but 95% of the mod is about solving the puzzles that are presented to you in a very natural way.

Mission To Mars

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

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

This is another entry from the Source Modification Centre’s Mapping Competition 4.

It seems that a portal transfer went wrong or at least not as exactly planned and you find yourself in an underground base.

Find your way around and see what you can discover.

Colour for Movement

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

Allow me to introduce three seemingly unrelated points and then try to bring them together.

Apparently that’s what clever writers do, so I thought I’d try it.

I once remember reading that snakes can only “see” you when you are moving.

Black Ops Redux

for Half-Life

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

This is a remake of Black Ops, it use the AM Rebirth Code (Which is pretty freaking cool) and adds 3 new weapons, as well a various graphical updates.

There are no story changes or any changes to the original maps.

Don’t miss the training room for some useful information.
