That’s shout sounds fear into the hearts of the surviving Resistance.
Never has such an enemy caused so much damage to morale of fighters.
Here is your chance to strike a blow against the Combine.
This is mod has been updated as part of The Ville Retrospective event.
StriderVille is the result of a mapping competition.
The competition only received 2 entries, which was very disappointing, considering how successful the last one was.
This mod is dedicated to the memory of Jasper, who was really looking forward to playing it.
The winning map will be the one that creates an interesting scenario using Striders as the main enemy. The setting can be forest, town, Citadel-style Combine structures, anything you can think of, maybe even a coast area. I’d love to see some indoor areas to fight the Striders in and maybe some eye-level action (i.e. not always below them).
It would be nice to maybe use other weapons besides rocket launchers and maybe even use the environments against them but I don’t know how feasible that would be.
Basically I am looking for something that shakes up the idea of a boring battle where the player has to run around looking for rockets. Perhaps a chase on a buggy through the water canals with the Strider behind you. Perhaps a stealth mission to sneak up on one, perhaps something where you need to keep the Strider occupied while a bunch of citizens escape. Let your imagination run wild (ish).
I want to finish the map and say “WOW”, that was great!
Unfortunately, Sean’s map crashes for me and even using noclip doesn’t help. Therefore, I can’t really accept it as an entry, that, plus it doesn’t have the text at the beginning and I don’t know if it has at the end. I emailed him but haven’t received a reply at the time of writing.
This means that Samuli wins by default. However, whilst his entry is very good, it doesn’t really do anything different from other Strider encounters and as the text above stated “…I am looking for something that shakes up the idea of a boring battle where the player has to run around looking for rockets.” and his entry doesn’t do that.
I am fully aware that the last competition I ran had a similar problem and I didn’t give the proper prize. Even though this is probably the last mapping competition I will run, I don’t want to have a reputation for cheating entrants.
So, with that in mind, I am asking PP readers to suggest a fair prize, based on these circumstances. Please keep any discussion polite but honest.
