About

You are a rebel during the war which opposes you to the Combines, Gordon Freeman has disappeared since 4 days at Nova Prospect. You were on a ship when a Combine Gun Ship opened fire at you, most of your crew drowned, you and the few others could reach the beach, and there you found a House, empty. It is dark already, you decide to go to sleep and wait the Sun Rise.

Everything is calm, you all go to sleep, keeping your Magnum near you, there are no beds in the house. And there, one of your friends, a crowbar in the hand, enter the little you were trying to sleep in, full of blood, he closes the door, and fells down…What happened???

Puzzles

Here is the story, now what will be a crazy map without puzzles and secrets???
Here are the 2 types of secrets to be found:
The Rooms: In the map, there are 3 Rooms like the one shown above.
The BORN Signs: In the map, there are 8 BORN signs to be found, like the one shown below.

The Weapons:

All the hl2 weapons but the bugbait are hidden in the map, you have to find them. To find all secrets and born signs, you’ll have to climb, jump, shoot, explore all the level. Good hunting! You have the weapons, you are alone in the house, you must get out of the house, and survive to the Combines and find thoses secrets…Will you survive??? Good Luck

Author’s Notes:

I advise you to fix thoses options so you can have more fun in the map :
Difficulty: Hard
Video: Anti Aliasing : 2X ; Filter : Trilinear ; Water Reflects : Reflect All ; Image Details : High ; Texture Details : High ; Models Details: High ; Shadow Details: High.

If your computer does not allow you to put theses options, I doubt you will enjoy the game as much as you could with thoses options. You must have at least the following to play normally:
3 Ghz Processor, 1024 Mb Ram, GeForce 5 or Radeon 9800 or better.

This map is with no doubt the most expensive map, ant it gets slow during gun fights.
So then you ask, why I didnt do it faster? Because Good Map = Good Computer, Fast Map = Short Map = Usual Computer
In case it gets slow in battles, go in the houses instead of staying in the street.

    Too bad this has hung my machine up several times. Other than that it’s not bad.

    Thanks, Phillip. for tracking this down. Where did you end up finding it? I spent hours looking, and what I ended up with seems to be a series of .rm movies, and not a HL2 mod. :rolleyes:

  3. I contacted the author and convinced him that many readers here would want to play it. He was reluctant as first because he was concerned about the demands it makes on most machines, as can be seen from Dufferx’s post!

    Anyone play this yet?I tried it out but all you seem to do is sit on the roof and shoot ships and combines that keep respawning.There are very few buildings to enter and each end of the street is blocked.Am I missing something?

    I’m with you: I’m stuck on the street, I’ve foudn two of the “Born” signs, but can’t seem to get past the street because of the combines and the striders that keep respawning, I’m spending more time trying to stay alive than I am exploring. Anyone have any hints?

  6. i really wish I could give this a thumbs up but after the 6th wave of combines this map became unplayable due to the sheer number of corpses on the ground. maybe a little more thought on resource management? 3ghz? 1gig ram? geforce 5 or better? a little steep dont ya think?

    any way to remove corpses form the console? would be a big help

    I first try to play this one 1 year ago but without success since it was really lagy (i made a step per second…)recently I upgrade the RAM to 1,5 Go and for the rest I have an athlon 64, 4,3 Ghz and a geforce 6.
    I didn’t really get further than the main street and was really frustatred and disapointed by the gameplay also looking to the design it’s honest nothing special…
