    A very interesting couple of maps. The first one had nice look and layout, and the combat was very balanced and interesting. Barney was quite helpful in this map, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to bring him into the second map. This was because the transition to the next map was too close to the door that I was trying to get him through.

    The second map with it’s exterior environments was not as polished. There were multiple texture issues throughout and it looked like the author did that one in more of a hurry. The canyon layout was great to navigate around though; I wish it was bigger.

    If the author fixed up the issues in the second map and added more content this could be a very nice mod for BM. It’s well worth playing and kind of nice that you don’t need to use Steam Workshop to get it!

    1. Upon replaying the maps, the texture issues I saw in the second map are not there any more. Whatever caused it seems to be gone.

      1. Looks like you can get Barney through to the next level. Checkout screenshot 30.

  2. Is it just me ? Following the path you suggest to download and install this isn’t working. I have Black Mesa installed, but can’t find where you suggest to put this file…in fact it’s odd, although the game plays (Black Mesa) a search on the PC can’t find it and it’s not listed under ‘common’ or anywhere else for that matter…so installing and trying this mod/map isn’t working out..

    1. It’s OK, the file and path were wrong (for my machine), however, it just crashes upon opening, so no further forward…

      1. If you don’t mind my asking, what IS your path?

        1. yeah, my fault I guess, but it’s the same as yours above, except not ‘Black Mesa’…it was just BMS, I was searching for Black Mesa…oops, but anyway, as I said, it just crashes as it attempts to load up..

          1. Is BMS the mod version? If it is, then that mightbe why it crashes. This was made for the retail version.

    Duke— it’s not just you! I just reinstalled Black mesa, without any of the xtras , yesterday I installed the map with everything else. Black Mesa played just fine, BUT when I put the maps in the correct place and brought up the console typed in bms_gorge_02_a_fix.bsp –> it crashed!! So I restarted Steam tried it again this time it crashed my PC!!! I DL’d the file again and the same thing, only it just crashed Steam. Any ideas???? Phillip you say this for the retail version? I don’t think that was mentioned in the description above!!

    1. Do you have the retail version?

      1. AI

        No I don’t! I’m not in the habit of buying an unfinished product. So I’m (as they say here in Minnesota —SOL!!) Maybe someone will make something for the non retail version??

        1. I doubt it. The mod version won’ be updated or finished. I would think that anything released will be for the retail version.

          1. AI

            Thanks anyway, too bad it might not get finished, I enjoyed the version and xtras I have!!

  4. Is it me or is the second map unfinished? After jumping into the gorge, jumping back up again and then back down once more I couldn’t find anything else to do or anywhere else to go! And what’s with the Not Ready, Ready sign in the cave. All vey odd methinks.

    Well this BM mod was overall fun and interesting, and all in all let me wanting more.

    Obviously the first part were more elaborated than the second part. There in the second part I thought I was going to fight the apache heli. and I think that was the author’s intention but that map is just quite uncompleted.

    BM map-addons are interesting. Because they have huge potential to become full Black Mesa mods. And here with this one I hope the author keep on working with this project because it has great potential and sure it could offer some awesome maps.

  6. Think Twice

    Not very good, areas are empty and need a little bit of work it’s basic, the IA is bad and I don’t understand why we have a rpg at the end with action music if we don’t use it.

    1. This is an unfinished release, that’s why the RPG is there at the end.

    2. Yeah the rpg was meant to be used for a helicopter fight but thats around when I quit the map and abandoned the project.

    I really enjoyed this for the most part. It was really well put together and involved a variety of game play elements. I am not a fan of playing half finished projects but you seem far on with this and i am sure you will get it finished.

    Only a few points of note

    -At the start, there seemed to be a lack of ways of gaining health and once or twice i found myself on little to no health.

    -Some of the rooms in the second map seemed under developed but i’m assuming you will be adding to them for the full mod.

    -I tried to get the guard that you meet treating the scientist to follow me through the doors to map 2 but when the map changed he had gone. Im not sure how easy it is to get npcs to change map if you want them to follow you but it would of been good. (Unless you didn’t intend for him to follow the player.)

    Otherwise great job and i am really looking forward to seeing the finished mod. Especially for the boss fight at the end! 🙂

  8. Play It Later

    Very, strange. I just played it now and its hard to really get my thoughts out. So I’ll start with what is good.

    – The levels are detailed very well
    – Some puzzles to break up the combat
    – Design was okay in some parts

    Although, things that turn me off this mod are

    – Scientists are not a friendly bunch, kind of a passive aggressive tone, I walked into a break room to see a guard treating a scientist and they scream, saying ‘what’s wrong with you’ for seemingly just opening a door (So I murdered them with a shotgun, 4 shells well spent)

    – Lot of empty rooms, Noticed this a lot on the second map, went through 3 rooms with nothing in them, could of had puzzles or minor enemies, but their bareness in both gameplay and detail threw me off.

    -Music choices are off, During a combat segment there is a slow paced song from ‘On a rail’ I believe, it really did not fit the tone of the combat.

    – Was there suppose to be a helicopter fight? I picked up the RPG and the music started, but no helicopter appeared, it seems that you could just avoid the fight alltogether anyway.

    – Lack of feedback, Some buttons being red yet usable and some being red and unusable and later I completed a puzzle without being shown what the result was.

    Overall the entire experience was not bad, but it was quite boring. So that is something to consider for the future.

  9. I just like Black Mesa)
