Halloween Horror 3: Bone Room – Map Labs Test Tube #11

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

We’ve all come to love the annual Halloween Map Labs challenge. This year the challenge was only a Test Tube, so mappers only had a week and a half to build their scary, creepy entry. The theme was (B)one Room – the ever popular Map Labs motif now applied to the Halloween challenge, so mappers had to make a single room spooky!

This challenge proved to be as popular as the best of the Map Labs contests – with a whopping 28 entries (including 5 bonus maps). Enjoy!

Deeper Down

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

In 2013’s Half Life 2 mod Deep Down, Jim Partridge took several key aspects from Episode Two, Alyx and the car, and expanded on these in an attempt to re-create that amazing Half-Life 2 feeling that everyone is looking for. Now, with seven additional years worth of level and environment design experience, Jim has taken another swing at the concept. With thirteen almost entirely new maps, new environments, new gameplay concepts, new puzzles, custom models (care of Ed Vincent), and original music (from Anicator), Deeper Down asks you to hit the road one last time and take down the one enemy who’s always been watching.

FusionVille 2 – Map Labs #10

Once again RunThinkShootLive partnered with Map Labs to bring you another Ville sequel. This time, it’s the follow-on to perhaps the highest quality mapping challenge we have here at RTSL: the excellent FusionVille.

In FusionVille 2, authors were challenged to combine 3 of the following previously-used themes, half from RTSL and half from Map Labs:

  • Bridge
  • Toxic
  • Teleport
  • Liberation
  • Vertical
  • Episode One
  • Two Rooms
  • Think Tank
  • Companion Piece
  • Back on Track

So here is FusionVille 2, Map Labs #10. It has 10 entries along with 2 bonus maps. Hope you enjoy, there are some pretty unique maps here!

Eye Candy – Map Labs Test Tube #8

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

This Map Labs challenge focused on purely visuals – make a pretty map, gameplay optional (and did not count toward the score). This was a Test Tube, so the mappers only had about a week to pull off the best-looking map they could.

This time there were a whopping 28 entries (including a bunch of bonus maps, and adding another fantastic background map). Enjoy!

Back on Track – Map Labs #9

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

The latest Map Labs challenge is Back on Track, where the challenge was to create an interesting way to have the player backtrack through an area or even the entire map – a classic map design pattern. Yep, somewhat in the vein of BackTrackVille but certainly its own challenge. (But the next full Map Labs challenge is a collaboration with us here at RTSL, so keep your eyes out for that!)

This time there were a whopping 19 entries (including bonus maps, and a fantastic background map). Enjoy!

Companion Piece 2: Companion Harder – Map Labs #8

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

For this challenge, Map Labs expanded their Test Tube Companion Piece (couple days) into a full-blown lab challenge (3+ weeks). The theme was of course to make a map where the player works alongside an ally or companion.

So here are the 10 maps entered, along with 2 bonus maps!

Fun fact: AllyVille was going to be one of the Lambda Cup 2018 challenges for a long time. Unfortunately we wanted to get some extra features into the game to expand the usefulness of NPCs, and that was never completed. So AllyVille was cancelled as a theme – glad it can live on somewhat under Map Labs!
