  1. Phillip says Avoid It!

    This is a “First Map” release and doesn’t really excite or challenge you. I feel the really issue is the lack of imagination is creating a setting. I understand that it’s hard when you first create something but there is a difference between technical skill in making something and designing something to build.

    Getting help with the first is much easier than the second. I would always recommend releasing something that you have spent more time on and people will enjoy. This is really the sort of thing you start with but never release.

    The final part is very annoying in that you press the button and the whole boat explodes, killing you and the scientist. I feel this is one of those situations where the mapper has learnt to do something and wanted to include it but failed to understand how that makes a player feel.

    If I didn’t run this website, I would be very hesitant to play another of his releases.

    I recommend the mapper keep building things but put more thought and planning into the design. Also, play the great HL1 mods and learn from them. Sure, you won’t be able to build something as good as that immediately, but see what they do well and emulate them.

  2. Avoid It!

    As Phillip said, first maps are not for uploading. This is clearly not meant to be played by anyone other than the original author. If I had released every map I ever started, first of all there would be a lot of terrible maps and mods out there and second, my reputation would not be great.

    It has the standard annoyances of first time mappers, namely having the player progress and collect weapons without an HEV suit meaning your health, ammo and weapon loadout remains a mystery, only letting you swap weapons with the mousewheel.

    Also, no lighting has been applied and the skybox doesn’t fit the theme at all.

    My suggestion would be to work a lot longer on maps you intend to release. Playtest them to the point that it starts to annoy you and you’ll know what needs to change. 🙂

    Avoid It!

    This is right up there with the worst of them. Not sure why this was released unless we’re just being trolled. It’s not even amateurish, that is giving it too much credit. It’s awful and fullbright and not an ounce of thought or care was put into it. And did you notice that all of the buildings are breakable for some reason?

    This was not worth the 3 minutes I spent playing it. Stay far away.

    1. I believe the reason for the func_breakable everywhere is for the explosion at the end…

      1. Yeah, I meant to say that too.

    Avoid It!

    Yeah I think in this case we all will be agree this is just a horrible piece of crappy first release map.

    Just that; stuttered in my PC as hell it almost gave me headaches, and main of all, it was just bad planned as hell, i didn’t found any HEV suit so difficulty was hard, no gunfire weapons just the crowbar all the time and a very stupid explosion button finale.

    That’s it, sorry about this recom. But don’t play this, I guess there are plenty of 1st releases better than this one.
