Explore a variety of coastal areas and locations in the first challenge of the Lambda Cup 2018.
You will find 14 official entries, along with 3 bonus maps.
Hello and welcome to the Lambda Cup, a series of five HL2:Ep2 single player mapping challenges.
The word “coast” is very evocative. Long walks on the beach, pretty little seaside towns, high cliffs with waves crashing against them.
We would like you to build a map that has “coast” as its main setting. We leave the exact type of location to you but here are a few ideas.
A port used for storing and loading containers, a beach with little coves to explore, a re-imagining of Lost Coast, a cliff wall with caves and walkways, and finally a map where the player has to work their way along the coast through outposts.
Driving maps will be accepted but please think carefully before choosing this type of gameplay – it often involves a lot of work for very little player interaction.
We have purposefully chosen this theme as we feel it is open enough for all standards of modders yet also offers the possibility for many types of interpretation.

It contains 10 official entries and one bonus map.
The focus of this theme was to create a map inspired in some way by Marc Laidlaw’s Epistle 3 blog post as well as any Ep3 details.
