Dark Intervention

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

A town close to yours has been shelled a while ago. The Combine have settled there, with a small base. Such a small base doesn’t seem harmful, but you think something else is going on.

Led by curiosity, you make your way into the town…

This is my first map so any feedback is appreciated.

Many thanks to Strontvlieg, Lyren and Spoops for playtesting.

One Room – Map Labs Test Tube #1

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

The Source Modding Community Discord server has started running mapping challenges of their own. So far the challenges have all been single player HL2: Episode 2 maps (actually running on an improved SDK 2013 version), so they’re definitely worth keeping an eye on!

This challenge was a “Test Tube” challenge – a 72-hour weekend challenge with the theme of One Room – the entire map should be set in one room. The challenge received a solid 16 entries, and here they are!

Video games always feature various styles of gameplay. In this challenge we asked mappers to create a map that flowed through 3 phases. See the Theme Details section below for full details.

The resulting maps range from average to fantastic and the different interpretations of each phase is fascinating.

The 72-Second Experiment

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

For this Experimental Mapping Challenge, entrants had to make a map that lasted just 72 seconds, but they only had 72 hours to make it!

A lot could happen in that time, so don’t think it will be easy.

In addition, you might need to learn the correct route, actions or sequence before you can actually finish it.

There are 12 official entries and 1 bonus entry for you to play.

Cenodrome: The Lost Sub-Basement of TWHL Tower

for Half-Life

Cenodrome is a small standalone map made in the mold of the TWHL Tower maps. Put together by regulars at The Whole Half-Life site, TWHL Tower was a collaborative mapping project where each mapper constructed a small floor of the tower, and each floor was joined to others by a stairway. Cenodrome is the long lost sub-basement of that tower.

Reject

for Half-Life 2

Ammo is in short supply, so use it sparingly.

In fact, why don’t you use the grenades that the Combine soldiers through?

Find all the switch and reach the suitcase.

They are not easy to find though!

Deadly Cargo

for Half-Life 2

You ARE the deadly cargo!

You are being transported somewhere but foolishly they left a crowbar in your “cell”.

You have waited until the train has stopped and now it’s time to escape.
