Ade - Back On 2rack: Vertigo – Map Labs Presents - 59 mins ago
Hi all, I rarely post here anymore, but this time I was compelled because I wanted to warn players about something and maybe hopefully the pack gets re-compiled. The only entry that crashed (twice) was Cold Hard Steele 4. After it did, my Windows cursor changed only when I was in the Steam application, other apps were fine, but only a PC restart fixed this. For this reason, it felt like a hack, and the last entry is the only one that I can remember that has custom crosshairs so I believe that...
Dmitry - A Soldier’s Tale - 1 day ago
This mod is nice, but it's like short sections with some variations. Like he gives a sniper with 5 shots and 4 enemies and that's it. Give some Machine Gun ammo and the first alien take away all the ammo. There's like a fall down in ammunition level of good weapons and too much ammo for common weapons. And he placed HEV charger for the end. The machine gun, is useful forsome waves with little amount of enemies, when real challange come in, you are on your on. It's like they like to give somethin...
Mizuki010 - The Long Night - 1 day ago
Great action, but very poor item pickups. In some parts, I had almost no Ammunition, and the Health pickups or Healing Stations were almost nonexistent. I like the cutscenes but the story was okay. I can call a good mod, but the detailing and the enemy positioning are not that good....

RTB Redux Division 3 demo is available and, no surprise, its very good! And already there is a custom game add-on for it called Air Exchange. There are some new (I think) custom maps for Entropy Zero 2 - Point Insertion, Prospekt Zero Remake and Revision Chapter 1....
Spud - 2024 General Chat - 4 days ago
I remember hearing about this site way back in the heyday of Half-Life. Just commenting to let it be known that I vastly prefer HL1 to HL2 with GoldSRC being vastly more charming than Source. Admittedly that may just be nostalgia talking but I stand by the statement nonetheless. I wish Valve would return to developing for GoldSRC much like games like Ion Fury returned to the Build engine. I long for the days when GoldSRC was adopted by the mainstream and wish that we can someday experience the...
Luke Traitor - Powerstation 17 - 5 days ago
Hands down to one of the best classic mods in HL2. There's not much to say about it but I'd be biased. This mod is one of the GOAT of HL2 mods....
Luke Traitor - Baryonic Predicament - 6 days ago
This would've been a great mod if it weren't for a cheap combat arena. There's pretty much no story in this one. You pretty much run and gun while you solve through puzzles as you descend deeper to hell. The puzzles you have made are quite unique and creative, but how come you can't do the same to combat? Now I don't mean to be rude but looking back at HL2 campaign, the combat there is a bit more decent rather than a repetitive arena styled fights. I mean come on, you start off with like 10 comb...

Luke Traitor - Old School - 6 days ago
Finally, I was able to finish this mod. I still do not know why my game crashed during the finale where you get to fight your clones. But still, quite a fun experience only for the first time. It's just that the game gets pretty old quick. Therefore, my point still stands, still "play it later." If you really want an old school FPS style, just play Doom or Wolfenstein....

Dmitry - Zubben - 1 week ago
Welcome to Mars and Mars mine vehicles. Still, I don't understand why Gordon lives and scientist dies just like that to the external environment. He forgot to include the oxigen for the hero, the suit by itself is without oxigen tanks, so how he could even breath out there. Anyway, if you are on Mars, I think your bullets would be ineffective because there's no oxigen, so bullets simply are not fired. He, he, what a mess of developer....

Dmitry - Trigger Happy - 1 week ago
A simple level full of enemies. He gives different weapons, it's true. In my case I recieved 1 Rocket Shot and 5 crossbow darts by the end of the level which isn't too much because it was in the ending. He could create those special weapons by the beginning, instead of ending with powerful weapons for nothing. This kind of creativity sucks in many mods. They could give a crowbar and crossbow at the beginning of a mod. Where's the problem? Difficulty is always relative....
Dmitry - Timeline 1 - 1 week ago
A space traveller? What amazing, the changing of different ambient and time is what I really need. But that is a dream, we cannot travel through time, don't we? Especially if we pretend to different locations through time. It is just a theory. I don't think that someone ever did. And if someone ever did, what is he's doing here then? Go to another world in the future. All those who travelled in time are story tellers and are living inside a dream with no direction or even a scratch of reality. I...
Dmitry - The Swimming Pool - 2 weeks ago
When you grab the key, the game is over. I think he just left the map develpment in there and had gone. Supposedly that key should open the grate door, but it won't open at all. And the guys arrived in the truck, they just in there to replenish areas with soldiers. The key actually do not open any new door at all. And that explosive crate blows to quickly in order to grab the ladder and if it blows, you are stucked in that bottom forever....

Dmitry - Sooper 2 - 2 weeks ago
He tried his best. Nice mod. Except that jump with trampoline, requires to crouch on the top. If not you'll always fall taking damage. At the beginning a had a wish of using noclip here thinking this jump is badly designed or even the trampoline do not impulse enough you high into the air. I recommend save the bow for headshots rather than waisting it in the water. It seems not precise under water in any mod....
Dmitry - Secret Base - 2 weeks ago
Every meter, just one grunt, another meter, another grunt. They live like a family in that base. I recommend to turn away when attemting to go inside. If not, you alone can't deal with this horde of terrible soldier who shoot you on sight putting you in a difficult situation like breathing under water until the stop watching you....
Dmitry - School Of Terror - 2 weeks ago
It is a school of Terror, it's dark, there're too many classrooms all around and no one is inside. Only ghosts are patrolling the area. Most of the areas has a lot of desks and a board when pupils are studying the art of military strategies to overcome the enemy. Maybe this is true, this is how they were planning all the attacks, go to this kind of schools first and then go to the openfield....
Dmitry - Reviviscence - 2 weeks ago
Welcome to a boxy areas with hundreds of enemies, of all kind are waiting you inside the pipe, inside every room with the claws ready to bite you. Just ready you crowbar and MP-5 will fire at you. Ready your Hive Gun and a turret will surprise you. There's so many enemies, I'm not even sure what is going next. It would be nice to create of a wave of similar enemies, instead of putting everything in one sac. And that Gargantua, if AR grenades do not kill it, only normal grenades can make a final ...
Dmitry - Rebellion - 2 weeks ago
You can download this mod from Moddb. It works 100%, just install English version so you can read and understand what they say from French as translation. This mod is nice, it's a piece of Art. I agree it has too many empty areas and some of them has too many soldiers at once. Still the overall art design is Superb. They employed all their skill in artistic design and removed the old way of shooting weapons, they made it like faster killing way. That makes the Assault Rifle a special mod weapon ...

Hi All, It's Phillip. Hope you are all well.

Duke - 2024 General Chat - 3 weeks ago
I can't believe I've been 'doing' this stuff for over 25 years now, it's time to move on. There are a few reasons for that, lost interest mainly, HL 3 never happened, the mods are getting poorer and I suppose there's only so much one can do with the same opponents, whether re-hashed in different skins or not, you kinda know what's coming and how they'll react. The competitions bore me to be honest...there's nothing left that inspires me so I suppose I've pretty much been there and done that, not...
Luke Traitor - Outrun - 3 weeks ago
So there are goods and bads in this mod. First off is that the level design and triggers are broken. So what I have remembered are: There's one map transition that is so broken, I ended up getting a softlock. Getting in and out of a tank is a chore. Unlike the one in the actual game, it's easy to use. But why here, it's so hard to get in and out of the tank? The rest are just fine to me, no comment about them....
Dmitry - Qortez - 3 weeks ago
If you want to talk to any spec ops, play this, find him and talk to him. It's like talking to Sam Fisher. He will invite to take the jeep down below and you with your partner will be clearely detonated by explosives thrown by the chopper. Supposedly you shouldn't survive all this anyway, that's why the next area is cut off because chopper should be the winner not you....
Dmitry - Peaces Like Us - 3 weeks ago
One of the best mods of the year. Xen creatures my allies? For sure, first time seing this. I really loved the idea of how he did this. Gargantua fighting for me? Wow, I am really impressed. I never saw this in histrory, it's the first time. It explains why G-Man come here to destroy us, they envy, aliens help us. This is preatty close to Mass Effect game. So it is close to my idealism too. Aliens do not have to be enemies, but allies. So this is maybe personally top 1 mods because that idea roc...

Dmitry - Mistaken Identity: Part 2 - 4 weeks ago
There's heavy problem to play this. The transition between maps never happens, so it's like starting a new game every map. But if transition is nicely made, the mod is quite acceptable with a quick ending where you are blown up by G-Man bomb and that's it. The nicest view is when you slide down the rope in the canyon....
Dmitry - Mistaken Identity - 4 weeks ago
This mod is nice but boxy. There's not enough space for many maneuvers. Still is nice to consider a good mod. He don't give esencial weapons in the beginning of the phase, but gives them later. It is not a good idea to waiste too many shots on crates, but there's not many crates too. And that rocket in the chanal, does it some use? Maybe it should explode or something, just standing still like a box floating in the water like a submarine torpedo....

Dmitry - Medieval World - 4 weeks ago
Welcome to a world where the sword is a crowbar and it is useless like shit. The only thing it can clearly kill are small rats which would be much easier to kill with MP-5. So Gluon Gun existed in Medieval World and MP-5 didn't. People in Medieval were goiung through traps, I don't think so. So in Medieval World, people were risking their life by travelling through lava pits. And worst of all, how on earth HEV suit existed in ancient times. Really? It's impossible to make a Medieval World though...

Dmitry - The Long Night - 4 weeks ago
Very long very hard, very tiring, too many ambushes and more ambushes and more of them. I would call this designer a master of ambushes. I think it would be nice he design a 100% ambush game where you 1 attack one enemy and then 100 more will spawn behind just to kill you while you running like a chicken backward in the corridor. The number of vortgaunts in his mod is quite high, and kill like 4-5 alien grunts in succession is quite rare to see as well....

SpankyMcBemsi - The Citizen - 4 weeks ago
This mod is absolutely broken on modern Source SDK/Steam Pipe. 1. The Sprinting is broken, while you're supposed to be able to without a suit it doesn't. 2. The scripted AI is absolutely buggy 3. Audio issues. I'd avoid or play The Citizen 2 till a patch or fix comes out by the creator or a third party. Not only that a whole intro sequence is played out while manhacks bounce around above the ceiling if you're dumb enough as I was to press a button marked "DO NOT PRESS"....

Dmitry - Hostage - 4 weeks ago
The first time I played this, I said, switch is broken and the door won't open, so it is a dead end. I though the mod is made of one room only. Since weapons do not make a sound, maybe it was just a first test room. To tell the trough, it's the best MP-5 I see in my life, it is so silent, that no one would realise where shots comes from and who is firing that gun!!...

I couldn't get inside robo cabin. There's some ammo inside, but how on earth someone big like me could fit in that small hole. Only a grenade can get inside and grab the ammo, Gordon don't use hands or a hook fish to grab some ammo from hard to reach spaces. In second place, how the robo knew where I was going, he just opened a new gate for me. A useless gate of course, it said that I couldn't use the door, the door was for aliens, humans goes through the sewers infested with rats, headcrabs,zom...
Dmitry - Help Wanted - 1 month ago
Very nice mod. I would add some weapons on the first part. Instead of using a hand as a crowbar. What a nice design. But the hand is not made of iron, so you bet if it's really good or bad as a weapon. In my opinion bare hands are stronger or even throwing a stone at the enemies. Even kick boxing is better than that hand. It shouldn't even be strong like a stick. Even a stick is stronger that this. Lol this is like throwing a headcrab against zombies. What a freaking bad idea. There's no logic i...
Dmitry - The Haunted Lab - 1 month ago
This mod is scary, if you see it that way. Now if you turn your fears off and the volume, of course it's not scary because you don't want to be scary. If you really want to be scary in this mod, just feel what he want to project you and you will see. Imagine the creatures to be real is one of the example. If the lightning is flashing is because a demon is manipulating them and he's going to bite you, you sick peasent ha ha ha. It's very scary, even more that you can imagine. Remember fear always...
Dmitry - Haunted - 1 month ago
When you have to jump over the riding train, it reminds me even of splinter cell games. The difference is that in real life is hard to fight against gravity made out of train movement and the faster the train moves, the less chance to stay alive for you in there. The train must be really slow to be able to run and jump between vagons. On the second hand there's no tunnel in the world where there's nothing ahead except just an infinite tunnel....
AVoider - Half-Life: Echoes - 1 month ago
Half life Echoes is an amazing mod! The visuals look great and the idea for the game is excelent. In this game you play as a scientist that was one of the candidates to work for G-Man , although it took me some time to realise so I'm leaving it as a spoiler. The mods atmosphere is often lonely and except for aliens or the H.E.C.U and you only once find another scientist or guard. The are only a couple of moments that you just ask yourself " What am I supposed to do n...

HalloweenVille is a collection of 5 short horror maps, each bringing something to scare the player. For the first entry in the HalloweenVille series, it is... short. Yet still, some of the submissions did a real good job at scaring me. All Hallows' Isle [recimage id=2] Playtime: 10 minutes I personally found this one funny. The map quality and design choices obviously indicate that this person might be new to mapping, but there were some prett...

malfisthemerciless - Optimum Fear - 1 month ago
This is possibly one of the most cramped level design I’ve played, it doesn’t give way to a claustrophobic feeling just annoying that the whole thing is brightly lit, tight underground silo with little in the way of combat, weapons, length or anything really. The one section that could have been great (assassins) is possibly the worst use of the enemy I’ve seen… the cramped room with explosive boxes makes them dead easy to take down with the shotgun you just got, without even having t...
Hec - Tune – Map Labs Atom #4 - 1 month ago
I don't know which recommendation tag to give this one... So I'll give it a big Maybe? because even though the idea may sound cool, that is, developing a map laid out around or inspired by a song, most entries were badly implemented and the authors didn't even dare to mention which song they picked up. So the result is a bunch of maps with various topics, from surreal stuff to big "walking simulators" as I call those maps where the player just walks with no purpose. Then the last entry c...
Pogo Pogo - Halloween Horror V: THE UNKNOWN – Map Labs Presents - 1 month ago
Halloween Horror V is the first one that I played, so I have no basis on how this particular one is in relation to the other Halloween Horrors. Still, I liked this one. It had a pretty small but good set of games to play, ranging from short and sweet experiences, to longer and more forboding experiences that build tension for that sweet release. The pack is pretty small (7 submissions) but among them there are some solid works (not the program lol) The...

I am going to upgrade my score to "Play it Now", I quite enjoyed this after a replay. My issue with not very varied encounters I didn't feel this time. Maybe I've just grown to appreciate fighting grunts more, but I thought the fights were varied enough and were quite enjoyable. I still wished it played into the janitor stuff, but not really a negative. I think the rest of my old review generally is still accurate to what I think. One bit I grew to like was activating a giant fan in the later...
Haxray - Back On 2rack: Vertigo – Map Labs Presents - 1 month ago
Its been a while since I played maplabs, and was reminded of Maplabs existing upon stumbling onto the TTT map Labs. This quickly became a new favorite of mine. Concrete Xen: [recimage id=1] [recimage id=0] Unfortunately, this Pack starts off with, IMO, the worst map in the entire set. I wish I could give more criticism of the map, but the combat and environment are both rather dull. It is also super easy to skip fighting most of the enemies o...
MattLife - Half-Life: The World Machine - 1 month ago
Really neat mod! I had my gripes, but I did enjoy it. I thought the level design was simple but still engaging. Had a generally nice flow as most HL mods should. Gameplay itself was good and became proper fun on floor 3 and beyond. Again, simple but engaging. Most memorable moment was The very strange maze puzzle, which can be used against HECU soldiers and squish them. That was quite funny. Environments in this mod is easily the highlight. Insane amounts of deta...
Hec - Smoke on the Water – Map Labs Test Tube #6 - 1 month ago
OK, this one was better than the last 2 mapping competitions I've played. I guess it is because of the simple premise of the competition: fire and water. The 6 entries were nice and entertaining to play. And even that one with the "log on fire", poop joke was fun to play. Upper-West Side was the best indeed along with Very Hot Lab, the first, needed a bit more texture polishing but the gameplay was pretty nice. Overall a perfect Play it Later, neat short but fun entries....

G-Man is leaving the hangar on Submarine. It is slow like a cow in comparison of the portal he used to travel to other dimensions like Xen.

Anyone can ctach G-Man even the sharks, they are waiting his arrival, and when he's close to fish ambush all available sharks and whale are going to skink G-Man's submarine to the bottom of the ocean like Titanic lost his cruise in the middle of the night in the middle of the Atlantic almost ar...
Hec - Gnome – Map Labs Atom #3 - 1 month ago
Ok, so wow! I'm impressed mine (possibly) will be the only recommendation for this gaming competition. So overall my thoughts are this is a big "Maybe?" recommendation, because the general topic for the maps is OK but quite abstract at the same time. I mean in this one we have total joke entries, also some others are spooky, and only "Gnome Heist" is pretty greatly done. The cloak system, although annoying, it is cool once you get what to do. So if I compare the hideous "Boss LVL" compe...

Dmitry - The Evil Thing - 1 month ago
Let's forgive this guy. His mod is great, but, it would be nice to give more health or reemplace some shotgunner for MP-5 shooters or lower their health. The hangar was tough, the longer you take the more you are in danger. You can't even place satchels where they come from you are inmediatelly surrounded, I think he places side soldiers on perpose so you don't rush with the satchels. One satchel do not do too much. I really like the design of the second apache it really shoots rockets and you c...

This is a short, sweet and incredibly fun map! I really like settings like these and this map definitely did it justice: the rig itself looks gorgeous and that's especially because of its great lighting and skybox! Not to mention, the whole experience is very well designed when it comes to flow and combat. The way you traverse through the rig is quite fast and action-packed and it always keeps you moving!

Whatever you do, you will perish.

This level has good mapping only. I like the way they build it. A trial of jumping those ledges to get to the top of the mountain reminds me of some games.

Better late than never. Here goes another review. Concrete Xen by ArctixSnowPup [recimage id=3] Off to a good start, level design is kinda blocky but decent.

What makes it eerie to me is that I have felt...

It's impossible to not kill someone. It's little underdeveloped his levels, I mean ambient. One of the level is like a spiral corridor or something, it has a sensation of being quite empty. The submarine area is very hard, there's a grunt every meter, you make a turn there's always someone in there. A A...

The one thing above all else that comes to mind about this mod is Goldilocks territory. Almost everything about it fits that analogy like a glove; at least, the glove parts do. From the pacing and enemy placement, to the level design, lighting, puzzles right down to the length of the mod itself, nothing in it is too bothersome in either extreme. With that out of the way, this mod is a work of art. MrGnang's repurposing of assets in other Half-Life games coupled with the brand new ones he ...

A well balanced and challenging mod demo. Lots of new assets, if you're a fan of USS Darkstar (and by extension, the Aliens film series) you are going to enjoy this mod. I was playing completely blind, and moving as fast as I could; playing that way took me 2 hours and change. There are some areas where you have to potential to get lost and there is some backtracking. Only thing I would do is maybe have areas where the alarm isn't constantly blaring, that was pretty annoying. Highly re...
Hec - The Boss LVL – Map Labs Presents - 2 months ago
The only worthy entry is CrowbaRing, so this Avoid recommendation doesn't apply to this one. This entry was brilliant and original in combat dynamics, and maybe boss fight lovers will love this one. Also, the sniper entry is great... So apart from those, I dare say this competition is the most bland and technically terrible ever made as a whole. As I had annoying bugs in the Arrack Slug entry, and also the last Tripod entry was a total offense to any gamer, You just don't show a map so po...

Dmitry - Counter-Life - 2 months ago
Another experience of Half-Life. I was getting in love with that sniper. I will miss this mod. It reminds me of many shooters I played where I was a real hero with a sniper rifle and the scope. This is one of them. Return to Castle Wolfenstein also has an automated Sniper Rifle. It was a rock, but they made it wrong, because in some games enemies get stunned by the first shot in other do not. So it's like taking and dealing damage in Wolfenstein. In Half-Life it's the opposing, there's not an ex...

Dmitry - Conundrum - 2 months ago
I think to easy defeat the boss is do not rush in the battle, let him float, the upper he is the better. Sometimes it stays low which is very bad because it removes all the cover from the battle. I think the author did not left cover because with 1 cover we can destroy the boss, isn't it? But without cover we are always dead like a fly. Seriously, if the boss is in low field even single bolts are precise. On Easy, 3 single bolts taken is a certain death. Which means if you receive 3 bolts out o...

Dmitry - Chungo - 2 months ago
Chungo They Live. If you say it in Spanish, it's like saying that someone is living like a mess. In other words, that someone could be even an ill person or even living in a lot of problems, anything that indicates his life is abnormal rather than normal. Chungo means like hot & bad or hot & stupid in spanish language. If you say Half-Life is chungo it's like saying near to impossible to play it or very hard to my taste. If you say to someone he's chungo, it can also be meant he's taking...
Dmitry - Chronicles Episode One: Traumatic Experiences - 2 months ago
So we have taken a different road. But where? Where are we going? All is so unclear. I think it's an alternative Half-Life, I mean the ending boss is not Nihilanth. Maybe we are not going to Xen after all. There's one downside in the mod, he placed the assassins too early. In the original Half-Life we took a bunch of time before meeting this beasts with a crossbow, but here, not even a crossbow is available. And that M4 fires like a Cow. In GTA Vice City, M4 were an exceptional weapon. One of th...

Very little to be a demo. Very simple atmosphere! Besides it's impossible to get to "rest1" area through the game. It requires to use the map. Still this area has no connection to anything, just a restaurant area with a guy eating with the rat as a partner in the table....

I installed the REMOD. This one works on steam 100% and no keyboard problem. Some graphics are even improved. It includes the training room, must be found apart and one Bonus Level. This game reminds me of Retro and many PlayStation 2 Games. I like it a lot. This guy made a jewel. And comic pictures are the best idea because you can create levels faster rather than looking for macro detailing in every map....

Dmitry - Challenger Deep - 2 months ago
This mod is very atractive. If you place more ammo, health and enemies you will like it a lot. Many doors and railing are illuminated, first time seing this, this idea is great, gives some illumination telling you it's dangerous to go beyond that point. This is like a security measure. All Ichthyosaur were designed to be skipped. I would personally design another cage with oxigen baloons inside to hunt some of those fishes down. My ideas. It just a little wierd to not to have any iteractions wit...
