Abe’s Spicy Mappack Platter

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

20th August 2021

Here’s a collection of a handful of maps from longtime RTSL member (and Ville mapper!) ihonnyboy (Abraham Lee). It’s a bit of a hodgepodge of maps in various states, including some dev textures – and at least one you might recognize from an old mapping challenge. But they are all playable and worth a look, if not perfectly balanced. Enjoy!

Author’s Note

Welcome to Abe’s Spicy Mappack Platter!

This is a collection of maps and assets I worked on many moons ago, and have finally polished for release… and by polished for release I mean I made it so you can go from begining to end. But just because they CAN be beaten doesn’t mean they SHOULD. I like to play these on HARD difficulty, but it is not recommended.

I’ve got 5 dishes lined up for you (All maps are in various levels of development and polish).

    thanks 1st map played -really enjoyed house arena detailed clever combat enviroment

  2. Play It Now!

    Lots of good puzzles and battle scenes. You really know what’s gonna happen, what you need to do and so on. Easy to spot on/game design. I specially loved the second map. One thing I disliked tho was the amount of action paced when the APC started to show up and bombard the building. I can’t remember if there was also a ship or not, but still, there was too much stuff happening, rockets, bullets, explosions, everything you can imagine. I don’t know how to explain this better, but perhaps going low with the amount of enemies doing pressure over you in that area would sort this issue.

    Overall, nice pack of maps!

  3. Personal Favourite

    After what seems like a very long time of little activity with HL maps/mods, out of the blue come two Personal Favorites, back to back, starting with Southernmost Combine and then Brave Brain repeated, and now this!

    I only recall Bridgehead from the past, and loved it then. Of the five maps, I rated three of them 10/10 and another 9/10, which is to say the least for me, unusually high. Lots of action, sometimes an overload of it and confusion, but by sticking to it eventually I completed all of them. There are a few difficult puzzles, I’m tempted to post some spoilers, but again if you stick to it and look everywhere, it makes sense.

    I’m just hoping this bonanza of maps lately somehow continues! 😀

  4. Play It Now!

    I’d agree, Bridgehead was the best from my point of view, not so much for the manic action as such, but for how nice it looked, hell I’d live there.

    Wow! Best work that I have seen on this site in a long time!!!!
    Bonus: Works on Linux without all of those missing textures!

  6. Play It Now!

    Nice maps!

    Common
    – I love the change of some gun models and enemy voices.

    1st map
    – Short but fun arena map!
    – The visual of the map is beautiful.

    2nd map
    – Well-designed map! There are lots of combats, events and path puzzles, and they are mixed very well.
    – Since the map is pretty long, I wish there is some kind of ‘ending scene’.

    3rd map
    – Nice arena map

    4th map
    – Is the concept ‘F.E.A.R-like combat’? I like the concept!

    5th map
    – I didn’t play this map until ending, anyway I think this is a fun map.
