CrossoverVille 2 – Map Labs #18

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

CrossoverVille 2, in partnership with Map Labs as usual, is the sequel to 2015’s CrossoverVille. While the original asked mappers to merge Half-Life with another game, CrossoverVille 2 was more wide open, allowing entrants to cross over to any other form of media in their maps.

This is the second challenge of three in the Hammer Cup 2022.

Out of the grave comes this never-used Ville theme! Once again I’m glad to partner with Map Labs to bring these new mapping challenges to life.

Here is DeceptionVille, where the mappers were challenged to make a map wherein something isn’t what it first seems.

This is the first challenge of three in the Hammer Cup 2022 – stay tuned to see the standings and the results of the next 2 challenges!

Atom Week – Map Labs Atoms #6 – #10 (featuring AscentVille and ElevatorVille 2)

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

The Map Labs challenges come in a bunch of sizes – Atoms being the shortest challenges at 24 (or 48) hours. Back in March 2021, they ran a straight week composed of 5 Atom challenges.

We at RTSL collaborated with the Map Labs crew again for a couple of these Atoms – AscentVille and ElevatorVille 2. AscentVille was an unused idea back in the Hammer Cup days, and we thought ElevatorVille 2 would be an appropriate theme to interpret for such a short mapping challenge. Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Gravity, and The Emoji Theme fill out the rest of the Atom Week themes – plus a handful of bonus maps as well.

Anyway, here is the full Atom Week release! Enjoy a whopping 57 short-form maps!

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!

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.

  • 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!
