ETC – Earthquake Test Centre

for Half-Life

Originally, ETC stood for Earthquake Test Centre, but now that’s been forgotten.

All that matters is that you find yourself in a BM-style base with aliens and army trying to kill you.

It’s clear that you need to find a way out.

In fact, there’s a working portal, if only you could reach it!

Poll Question 240 – Do you snack when playing?

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

I used to be snacking all the time, I was an eating machine. But one thing I never did was snack when I was playing video games. I was too immersed in the game itself and I wanted to keep my fingers clean too, so that I wouldn’t have to clean my keyboard!

But if I were to play something like Nintendo’s Wii with friends then a bowl of chips or similar would all be part of the ritual and fun.

Of course, my gaming sessions don’t last for many hours or into the witching hour, but I suppose you young’uns need all the sugar you can get!

One thing I do always have on my desk is a bottle of water though, certainly couldn’t live without that when playing.

DAV Train

for Half-Life

This maps tries to bring a different ending for the Half-Life game when you reject the offer of the G-Man.

After you decline the G-Man offer he arrests you and puts you on a train to be transported to a base where your memory will be erased and converted to a cooperative member. In the middle of the journey you will be transferred to an Osprey to conclude the transfer to that base. It is here that the maps take place.

When you arrived, something happens and you hear some aliens and a battle going on. You realize that the aliens invaded this facility too. You manage to escape using the distraction of your guard and now you have to get to the Osprey so you can escape..
