Here is the second mapping challenge in the Mesa Cup.
The release contains 4 entries.
For this challenge, entrants needed to make a tram the main conceptual element of their entry. There was no actual requirement for the player to use the tram though.
For full details of the announcement, please see the original theme announcement.

Sorry but Gauge currently doesn’t cover Black Mesa maps or mods.
If you require more help, just ask, but please read and follow the instructions carefully or watch the video first – thanks.
- Locate and open your Black Mesa installation folder. For example, mine is D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Black Mesa\.
- Open the mesa-cup-c2-the-tram-complex-v1.7z file.
- In it you will see two folders: bms and platform.
- The platform folder contains a file which will overwrite a file in your installation. This is NOT a problem, but if you are unhappy about this follow the Optional Step below.
- Optional Step: In your Black Mesa installation folder, open the platform folder, then open the resource folder. Rename GameMenu.res to GameMenu-original.res. This means your original file will not be over-written – but honestly, it’s not a problem.
- Copy the bms folder into your Black Mesa folder. You may receive a message saying that you already have the same folders in there, don’t worry, you are only adding new files, so just say YES.
- Launch Black Mesa
- You now have a new menu item: BONUS MAPS (That’s what the GameMenu.res files was.
- Select BONUS MAPS.
- This will bring up a new window.
- Select the Mesa Cup: C2: The tram Complex folder.
- You will now see all the entries and can select them in any order.
- Play and enjoy!
