Save Alyx

for Half-Life 2

27th October 2005

Sci- Fi Single Player First Person Shooter Games Half Life 2 Doom 3 Far Cry Unreal UT2004 Quake Mods

Alyx has been captured by the Combine. Save her!!

Author’s Note:“While waiting for new single player missions to come out, I thought it might be fun to make one of my own. So, here it is. Short, flat and linear. I now know how much work it must take to make a really good mission. Critique from fellow mappers would be appreciated.”

    As the man said, a first try – Necros has a few good ideas and should definitely continue to develop his mapping skills. As things stand however – this should be seen as little more than a proof of concept.

    Short and sweet also very enjoyable, more please.

    When I get to the third map I get an error
    MaterialSystem_Interface_t::alocatelightmap (516×17) too big to fit in page 512×256

  4. Necros

    Noswal, I made a debugged version of the mission to fix the
    “MaterialSystem_Interface_t::alocatelightmap (516×17) too big to fit in page 512×256”
    problem. If you like I’ll send it to you (or Planetphillip) [email protected]

  5. Maybe?

    this one should be udate to the debugged version In my opinion it was correct but not that great for arround 1/2 hour

    It has a couple good ideas but nothing new and the maps are pretty bare. Nice try for a first timer and hope to see more.

    Big open areas. Not much in between. Uneventful. Broken areas. Not worth the download.
