16th April 2006

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

Author’s Note: “This mod was based off of a television show, I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say the name of it. It somewhat follows the environments of the show. You get informed by this woman that she has taken your brother and that you have to get into jail to kill a certain person so that you can get your brother back. To get into jail, you decide to rob a bank. Once your in jail you kill the person that this mysterious woman told you to. Now you get to escape from this high security prison.”

“You escape through the pipe systems and end up in a train station. Now the Cops are on you. You fight your way through a couple more environments until you reach your brother. So the question is, can you save your brothers life? I made this mod to learn how to use different programs, such as Valve’s hammer editor and Maya. Please download my mod and join me on my journey of learning game development. Thanks.”

Features
  • 1 new weapon.
  • 9 new maps.
  • Some new props and textures.

    Feeling kinda dumb here 🙂 How to “escape through the pipe system”? Stuck in the yard, somehow the next step “does not compute” to me!

  2. Serge

    Stuck in the yard alSo

  3. CubeDude89

    WTF!!! I didnt know this was here. Thanks for whoever made this for this mod. 🙂

    OK, once your in the yard, and you have to pick up the crowbar and kill a certain person. lol, just start swinging at everyone untill some one dies. lol. then once the sniper starts shooting, the other door becomes unlocked. lol. RUN!!! then you end up in the prison again. the you should take a right then up the stairs to the middle row, look in all the cells untill you see one with a decal on it. I looks like the wall is broked a little bit. break that wall, then your on your way to the pipe system. 🙂

    PS: Wasnt someone supposed to contact me before putting this up. lol, im not mad of anything. 🙂

  4. Do PHL or other websites contact the teams when they post details about mods?

  5. CubeDude89

    Hmmmmm. I guess not. lol, because I found another site that had my mod. 🙂

    It ok, But if I would have know then I would of been able to answer them two guy’s questions faster.

  6. dougjp

    Hi CubeDude89, thanks for the info, that one area was a bit hard to add 2 + 2 and = 4 😉

    Your explanation allowed me to proceed and that was a great mod! I sure hope you have some more mod projects in mind 🙂 Many thanks!

  7. recon'de'sprayer

    I can not seem to get this mod to work. I downloaded Ravenholm and it shows up on STEAM, but this mod does not. Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  8. CubeDude89

    recon de sprayer,

    Im not sure why it doesnt show up under Steams “My Games” Tab. But it could be because…

    1. You didnt install it to your “sourcemods” folder, So try to reinstall it and check the directory that it is installing to, make sure it is right for your PC.

    2. You might not have restarted steam after installing Jail Escape, So that could be the problem.

    Please tell me if that helps.

    playing my first mod,

    PS: Yes I do have More mod projects in mind,

    1. Evolution: Mand Kinds Next Big Step
    http://www.evolution.teamexp.net
    (1 year to go)

    2. Hypercube: Source
    (Not online yet)
    This mod is SP/MP, it takes place in the same
    cube that was in the movie “Cube 2: Hypercube”
    It is being made for a bunch of cube movie fans, including myself.
    (About 2 weeks before release)
    3. Mystery House

    Kevin Houston is a well known Detective in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
    One day Detective Houston recieved a package from a Dr. Luther.
    It contained 50,000 dollars and a letter saying that Dr. Luther
    needed Detective Houston to do some research on a mysterious
    mansion. A legend says that millions of dollars are hidden inside.
    The letter also said that Houston can not tell anyone about this. If he does
    then he doesnt get a cut of the money.
    Detective Houston is intrigued by the letter and heads to the
    mansion. Now he finds himself inside with no way out.
    (This is about a 2-3 week project and it is SP, No release date yet)

  9. CubeDude89

    1 more thing…

    These 3 mods I was just talking about are going to be 100% better then Jail Escape!!!

    🙂

  10. The Abandoned Workshops

    Gameplay:
    Your little brother has been kidnapped and the only way to get him back is to kill a person who is in jail for someone. However, you have to cause trouble in a bank to get put into prison and then escape after killing the person required to get your little brother back. The introduction was quite interesting but wasn’t made too well. Most of the way through you’re walking constantly and having very easy battles with enemies. Nothing too special to mention in this one either, most of it was quite boring to play through without much atmosphere or ambience to enhance the experience.

    Design:
    Average design throughout with many basic looking areas. The structure of each section isn’t too good but still gives you the idea of what the place is. However, the lack of interesting design with a lot of flat areas ruins the look of it all. The doors in this one are also too thick at times which doesn’t look correct at all. Texturing isn’t too good either with a few stretched door textures and bad choices which don’t mix too well together. Lighting is also rather basic and there never really seemed to be a light source to produce the light that is placed in the level which again, isn’t very good.

    Conclusion:
    The mod had potential to be an interesting and well designed mod, but however this is untrue. Average design and quite boring gameplay with easy fights throughout.

    killed everyone in the bank, now what???

  12. find the switches to unlock the other door

  13. Cubedude89

    yes, the two buttons that are in the middle room thing on both sides. Once you press both buttons, you will be able to go into the vault room.

    PS: if you damage the button lol, it will shut off the alarm.

  14. Hands down the best mod I have ever played lol. 😉

    Yaaaaa I quoted my first quote on Planetphillip.

    Now for me to update that old post.

    1. Evolution is on hold untill we get a programmer. The best for now may be a Beta release. Plus its multiplayer so Ugh! lol.

    2. Hypercube: Source has been released

    3. Mystery House was never more then an idea and production never started.

    4. I am working on a new Single player mod for hl2 called Rip Cage. Which is based off of a movie that will be out this summer. It will be included on the DVD. I dont mean to brag or anything but Yep I was hired by the director and am getting paid with free stuff like the DVD and Posters and Props that were used in the movie.

    5. I am also working on another single player mod Which will be the best mod that I was ever apart of!!!!
    Its Called…
    wait…..uh….well…. I cant tell you yet. Sorry, Top Secret.
    But it will be good.

  20. Thanks Phillip for being so cool!

    What am I being cool about?

  21. cubedude89

    ummmmm….
    😉

  22. This mod was hard to enjoy. It was difficult to figure out what to do next in several parts. The modeling and mapping are simple and repetative. I really didn’t feel immersed in the environment and story.
    It took me a while to find the door in the prison to get to the prison yard. Even when a voice told me to go to the right. I ended up checking every empty cell for items or anything. I don’t even know why I could open the cells???
    I suggest to pass on this one.

  23. cubedude89

    hey lol. 😀

    was my first try at making a mod. 😀 at least I finished it.

    Thanks anyway, haha

  24. The guy with the crowbar

    Well, I downloaded it, but not sure how to play it. Help please?

    ^_^;…

  25. Mel

    A very uninteresting game. Poor design, very basic and boxy, very limited game play not much combat to talk about, overall a poor set of maps that dont hold interest. If the author uses this for a learning curve then some good may come of the effort, but as it stands this is not worth a download.

  26. Mel

    Someone please votes this game it’s true value which is about 1.5/5.0

  27. cubedude89

    Now this is when you are supposed to say. “APRIL FOOLS” haha

    Just kidding,

    Did you at least beat the mod?

    anyway, sorry you didn’t enjoy it. Hopefully you will enjoy my next one. Which have some big names working on it.

    thanks for the comments.

  28. cubedude89

    @ The guy with the crowbar

    Try changing the installer location to
    c:\program files\steam\steamapps\sourcemods

  29. Mel

    No I did not beat the mod, I lost interest.
    But thanks for the mod and for taking my comments in such good light. Will look forward to you next effort knowing you must have gained I lot of mapping experience on this your first mod.

  30. cubedude89

    The last half of this mod is the best part. you actually get to shoot stuff lol.

    So maybe you’ll give it another chance and finish it.

    PS: sorry for the boring beginning. It had no attention getter. 😀

  31. Mel

    OK will give it another go.

  32. Mel

    Having given up on this mod first time around due to luck of content and gameplay on offer, I have now completed the mod and would like to revise my original comments which did not do justice to the game as a whole.

    Without a doubt the game improves with depth with a nice build up of combat and task solving by button pushing, I liked to way the lifts operated and the Strader fight in the dark was very effective, nice work. The design throughout is still very basic and boxy with plenty of scope for improvement with set design and choice of textures. Some of the dark sequence were to prolonged for my liking and did not seem relative.
    Sorry to the author for posting a negative review without completing the mod, but would suggest you need to hold the players interest from early after the start and build on this.

    Thanks again for the mod and good hearted response to my first review, will look forward to your next mod.

  33. cubedude89

    Thank you very much for playing my mod and I really appreciate your response.

    and you are exactly right with everything you have said. Especially with the relativeness lol. Its a long story but in short The first 6 boring maps were closely based on the TV show. which isnt really good for a game lol. and the maps after that were just random stuff I made and almost forgot the saving the brother part until the end when I just made the strider fight lol.

    Thank you for finishing my mod and for the feedback.

    I assure you ive learned a lot from this project and it has been 12 months from the time I released this mod. Ive learned a lot. And plan to release a few new things this summer.

  34. Robspace 1

    Cubedude-I’d really like to play your new mod but I cannot get it to work. I have tried twice to load it to Source Mods via the same path you posted, which is the same path I always use, and it’s not working. After I load it, I re-start Steam and what I see under My Games is another Half Life 2 under 3rd. party mods.-It doesn’t even say Jail Escape. When I try to start it I get this message-“C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam Apps\Source Mods\Scripts\game info. txt. is not a valid format. -the path is right, so what’s the problem?-It’s working fine on others.

  35. cubedude89

    My new mod? This? its not new.
    I will download this lol and see if I have the same problem.

  36. Robspace 1

    Yea, I just noticed the date on that thing! Wow-I’m going to have to check these dates more. I’m used to posting on sites with fresher posts. No problem-Anyway, thanks. I did try it again but same results.

  37. cubedude89

    I just installed it again and it worked.
    Check and make sure it is in your sourcemods folder.
    You could also install it to your desktop. then place it manually in your sourcemods folder.

  38. Robspace 1

    Ok-I’ll give it one more shot. I just installed Smod to that folder and Azure Sheep just installed with no problem after having to first load a new installer and patch for Steam. Anyway, there’s no reason for that not to work. I’ll let ya know.

  39. Robspace 1

    Nope. I completly reinstalled it. I removed all the old files and did a fresh download. I installed it as it should be. The path is the same as all the others to that folder. C\Program Files\Steam\Steam apps\Source Mods. I restart Steam and what I get under my games is this “HALF LIFE 2-all in upper case-when I click on it, I get the error message from above about bad script. So, once again I had to locate the uninstaller and remove the program from Source Mods. The name Jail Escape does not show in there, anywhere.. Cube, got no idea what’s wrong but like I said I am able to load other mods to that folder so unfortunetly I’ll have to skip this one-unless you have another idea. Maybe the fault is with Steam itself.

  40. If your using the path shown in the installers window then its not installed right.The installer uses C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\Jail_Escape. if you used the default you will find a valve folder now installed in your programs files

  41. Robspace 1

    Andy, I’m going by what Cubedude said “Try changing the installer location to
    c:\program files\steam\steamapps\sourcemods”, which is the only path I have used for any files going to that folder. Any time I have tried going the Valve route instead of Sream it dosen’t work. But, I’ll try go ahead and redownload it again and install it that way if possible and see if it works.

  42. Robspace 1

    Still won’t show up in My Games list. Andy, the default path is as you said using Valve, so I went that route and had it create a new path as it didn’t exist. It did end up in a file called Source Mods but it went through Valve prior to Steam and this has never worked and still dosen’t. It is there though. It says Jail Escape but not under My Games. It shows nothing there, not even the new HALF LIFE 2 file. There’s nothing there to start up, so I just don’t know what the problem could be. Iv’e used both paths now and neither one gets it working. I did install Smod 3.2 into the Source Mods yesterday with no problem by going the same way I have for all the other mods that go into that folder. I go through Steam and not Valve and there’s never been a problem.I’m not real great at navigating these but usually can get them working but not this time. For some reason it just does not want to cooperate. So, right now the mod is sitting in Source Mods but not showing in Steam. Before I delete it, is there anything else I might try to get er” going?

  43. Robspace 1

    Yea!! It’s working! I just moved it from the Valve path to the Steam path, the same place I tried 3 times before, and for some reason, that I won’t even bother to question, it’s up and running and loaded just fine this time. The stars must have lined up just right or Steam was doing repairs or , well, I just don’t know other then it was definetly not “operator error” lol. Anyway thanks Cube and Andy for the help. I’ll post a review after going through it but first I have to play through Azure Sheep. I just started on it while waiting on the Jail Break to free up.thanks again

    Not the worst modification I have ever played. It’s worth playing once…maybe twice if your really bored. It’s not completely unplayable, and some effort did go into customizing it such as the Bank and the town houses.

    Pros:

    1.There’s Objectives And You Are Told What Needs To Be Done
    2.You Do Get A New Weapon It’s Not That Great But It’s Still Different
    3.This Modification Does Have A Decent Set Up And You Have An Assigned Objective

    Cons:

    1.It’s Fairly Easy To Finish
    2.The Player Spawn Points Are Off I Needed To Use Noclip A Few Times To Get Unstuck
