HorrorVille: A Mapping Challenge

TREE: Half-Life Podcast

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

As part of the The Replay Experience Experiment, here is the first of a number of podcasts, discussing one of the game we have played.

In this case, it’s Half-life. Joining me for this one is Don and Emo. Don is a modder with tremendous experience and has released a number of mods/maps including, Radix. Emo is from Russia and has made Typical Disaster.

We discuss Half-Life from a number of different aspects. There are a couple of videos mentioned in the podcast and they can be found on the Resources & Curiosities.

Both Don and Emo have agreed to respond to any comments you may make, and of course I will too.

Half-Life: Uplink

The Replay Experience Experiment: Half-Life: Uplink

Uplink, released February 12, 1999, is one of two demos released by Valve for the original Half-Life video game. The first was Half-Life: Day One and contained the first fifth of the full game, and was only included with certain video cards of the time. Half-Life: Uplink, on the other hand, was a standalone demo set in the Half-Life universe, and contained levels and a storyline not found in the full title.

Ryan Finnie has created a wonderful website called HalfLifeUplink.Com, which contains everything you could ever want to know about the demo.

I saw this question on Reddit, which by the way has some very interesting discussions about Half-Life, and thought I would repeat it here.

The question is whether it is important to play the Half-Life games in order.

Explore again the Black Mesa Research Facility from the point of view of Jorge Barrett, a maintenance employee of the facility. Today should be one day just like all the other, but what lies ahead?

There’s a new codebase which allows new graphical features. However the changes, fixes and additions are enormous, so you will discover them slowly as more updates are released.

In a vast cave, Gordon finally confronts the powerful and mysterious being that is holding the portal open. Gordon destroys the Nihilanth’s shield, allowing him to destroy its vulnerable brain. As the creature dies, it floats toward the ceiling, and explodes in a giant green blast that overpowers Gordon’s senses.

ForestVille: The fourth 6×10 Mapping Competition

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Welcome to the fourth mapping competition in the 6×10 series.

For this competition I want you to create a forest environment.

One of the great things about Episode Two was the forest areas. They were fun to play and gorgeous to look at.

Now I recoginze that making beautiful forest scenes takes a long time, but I’m not expecting large areas. How you use the forest is up to you.
