RunThinkShootLiveVille 2 – Map Labs #3

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

The Map Labs team keeps cranking out quality mapping challenges. This time they approached me to ask about a crossover challenge and I suggested a sequel to the namesake contest RunThinkShootLiveVille. That was a fun challenge to run and play, and some memorable maps were entered.

So for this first crossover with Map Labs, the theme was to make a map featuring the sections Run, Think, Shoot, Live – in any order.

The challenge recieved 12 entries and 2 bonus maps, here they are!

E-Lab-orate

for Half-Life

This old lab complex was already tricky to navigate. Now, with the facility on lock down and rapidly descending into chaos, the most direct routes are blocked and you will have to find alternate ways to reach the surface.

E-Lab-orate was created for TWHL’s 20th Anniversary Competition.

Half-Life: Anti-Climax

for Half-Life

Half-Life: Anti-Climax is my take on the “battle you have no chance of winning” the G-Man offers you once you decline his job offer at the end of the Half-Life campaign. Is there truely no chance to win or can you lead Gordon to victory and freedom?

Companion Piece – Map Labs Test Tube #2

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

For Valentine’s Day, the Source Modding Community Discord announced a short mapping challenge. This one was a Test Tube, which means it only ran for a few days instead of the typical 3 weeks.

The theme was to make a map featuring a companion or sidekick character. Bonus challenge for creating the map with a companion as well!

The challenge recieved 7 entries and 1 bonus map, here they are!

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!
