Sudden Departure

for Half-Life 2


published: 2016

All of your friends and family left just before the Combine arrived and took over your part of the town. They left you behind for some reason.

You wake up with just zombies and Combine as company.

Fortunately, there is your cousin’s airboat in the yard.

If only you could get it to the canals. You could probably escape that way!

What The Headcrab: Episode 009
published: 2016

Bet you didn’t think you would see another WTH episode! I do want to make them but it’s so hard to allocate the time.

I have a plan to do shorter weekly shows, but let’s see what happens.

Anyway, what’s been happening in the HL SP world lately?

Zombie Attack

for Half-Life 2


published: 2015

You find yourself in a room. One door and a few windows.

There are a few crates, two barrels and a hidden turret.

You have one minute before zombies start coming through the door.

Can you survive?

Surface Run

for Half-Life

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

The scenario is simple: Save your own skin and get to the surface.

Based in Black Mesa, you get to see a small part of the underground facility and even a quick trip to Xen, if you look in the right place.

The WOW Factor
published: 2011

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

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a piece entitled Evenness of Quality, where I argued that a mod should have an evenness of quality throughout. Even if that meant dropping a section down in quality so it wouldn’t stand out. However, just to be clear, I was not talking about the detail of an area, but something more abstract. Well, today I am almost going to contradict that and write about the WOW Factor.

For a mod to reach greatness it normally requires at least one section in the mod where the player goes “WOW”. There are a number of ways to cause that exclamation.

Half-Life 2: Barney Trouble

Jasper posted this on the forum and having way through watching the first part I knew I must post it for all to see. It’s a machinima like no other I have ever seen. I sat riveted to both parts for the full length.

This is a superb creation and I salute the author(s).

Enjoy!

Super Buggy Track

for Half-Life 2

A fun map without any enemies. The purpose is to drive around in various buggies and use the ramps to do some acrobatics. The better you are the more ramps are made available to you.

Losspower

for Half-Life

About A short map with a few zombie and a few more headcrabs. There were a couple of nice features but ultimately there’s little you can do to retain a player’s attention when the map is short.
