Team’s Notes

“City 7: Toronto Conflict, is an action packed Half-Life 2 mod with a variety of unique levels and game play. Explore what has become of City 7 in areas like Dundas Square, Eaton Centre , Mel Lastman square, St. Michael’s Hospital and TTC system under the Combine rule. This version features Gordon Freeman as the main character, stuck in Toronto due to a teleporting accident in Kleiner’s lab. Try to escape this war torn city by finding any type of teleporting technology and send him back to City 17.

Despite our small development team and short production time, we managed to get halfway to the CN tower and have already created 2-3 hours of fun and action packed game play! We want to finish this mod the way it was intended it to be, as a glimpse at what happen to a part of North American during the Combine invasion.

It is believed that the Combine have created multiple citadels around the globe and human communication in the Americas has been cut off for years. However, Dr. Kleiner has just established communication with an old colleague residing in Toronto, Canada, now known as City 7. These communications lead to questions? What have the combine done with the CN tower? (a communication tower in core of Toronto) Was it destroyed or rebuilt? Did the CN tower serve a purpose during the alien invasion? Is there a rebel force in Toronto, and who will lead them?

City 7: Toronto Conflict is the first thesis project from the Game Design program at George Brown College . It is the policy of George Brown College not to endorse violence. We at the Game Design program respect this policy and understand the difference between real violence and video-game culture. We hope you enjoy this mod and follow the age rating advised for Half-Life 2. “

    I have progressed to where you get the super gravity gun and face the Helicopter Gunship with packs of Combine continually attacking. Have not got a clue what to do next.

    Where did you get the super gravity gun? I got the normal gravity gun but still got problem with those hordes of combines – I fought them for 10+ minutes but they finally get me. :( What I have to do? Please help.

  4. I have finished a walkthrough which is not yet on the main site, but should you require it please e-mail at roozbeh7(at)hotmail (dot)com and I will send you the full thing in word document. For now I will copy paste the last helicopter encounter.

    Combine Teleportation Center (boss / last level)
    59. Top yourself off by using the health and armour dispenser on the wall. Also grab the gravity gun and ammo on the table before you proceed.
    60. Before you go outdoors you should see the last boss. He is in a super armoured helicopter. Firing your rockets at it at this point will not kill him but it is a good start. After making clean contact with your rockets, save and move outside.
    As of yet you may find that this last part is impossible, but I guarantee you it is tested and is very doable without cheats. So if you are up to test your skills then here is the time to do so. The basic concept of the level is that there is a boss in a super tough helicopter which goes around the stage and fires at you with his machine gun. In the mean time soldiers will continuously rush you from all sides. Sitting in a corner and killing off the soldiers is not an option because their sheer numbers will never end. There are 3 anti air towers located around the area in a triangular form each has a long ladder leading to the top. By pressing

    Nice to see the TTC level design here on PP. I have already posted a positive short review here so wont repeat myself. However, I would like to comment again on the end scene with the helicopter gunship. To my way of thinking this is a pointless piece of mapping. If you set the hardness factor this high you just create a situation where I for one just can

  8. I have sent the walkthrough to planetphillip they said they would put it up. If you want it sooner e-mail me and I will sent it you.

    meh, I’m gonna post the bonus level part here anyways. Read bellow *spoilers*

    The First Canadian Place (stand alone bonus level)

    1. Run straight forward till the walls fall and block your path.
    2. Run back and the wooden wall will break and fast zombies will approach you.
    3. Kill them all and go through the hole in the wall where they came from.
    Walking backwards while shooting them will allow you to kill them faster and easier.
    4. Go near the stairs and look up.
    5. The glass above you will break and man hacks will rush you. Kill them all.
    6. Grab the 3 crates to your left.
    7. Move along and you will find yourself trapped within moving lasers.
    8. Let one hit you and the explosion will turn off the shield and block the front path.
    9. Go through the now disabled shield pathway.
    10. Turn on your flash light and just to your right corner get the crate.
    11. Keep on going left. You will hear noises and see head crabs coming out of the ground. Kill them and move on.
    12. Lasers will pop in front of you, and you watch some zombies get blown to pieces as they walk past them.
    13. You need to avoid the lasers this time. Crouch under the first one and break left.
    14. If you want to go through the trouble. There is a small health kit on the other side of the lasers. Use jump and crouch techniques to bypass the lasers to there.
    15. A part of the wooden wall breaks as a zombie approaches you. Kill it and continue on through the hole it made.
    16. Hack the vent with your crowbar.
    17. There is a combine turrets pointing at you and will shoot as soon as it sees any human movement. Before you crouch through, kill any combine soldier you see.
    18. Take your crowbar out and rush the turret, immediately go behind it and hack it with your crowbar to drop it down.
    19. Run to the right kill any combine soldiers you see. Go around back and kill the last combine soldier and drop down the drones.
    20. Recharge your armour with the dispenser and pick up any guns or health kits that the soldiers may have dropped. Also pick up the gun on the table there.
    21. Go back to the control center and press the 2 buttons there.
    22. They will disable the shield further ahead.
    23. The place where the head crabs are caged there is a shield containing the gravity gun. Turn off the shield by pressing the panel next to it and pick up the gun. The button also opens the doors of the caged head crabs so beware.
    24. Kill all the head crabs and move on.
    25. There is water in front of you and it has electricity running through it so hold

    In response to comment 60 by Jack.
    It’s often the case that one player will dislike and/or find difficulty with a sequence only to find others breezing through it with no trouble, I think we have all done that.

    So, in between my comment and that of Jack’s I have been back to the scene and played through to completion. I have to say that I still do not like the end sequence, it’s messy, longwinded and requires too much effort to down the gunship. I would have preferred to see the sequence better structured, it’s a great piece of design layout which is not used to it’s full potential. It would have been great to take on the combine first amidst the set design then progress to the gunship followed with maybe even more action before the end.

  10. Thanks for the comments/suggestions. We will be working on the continuation of the mod soon and a lot of these situations will be addressed along with implementation of new content, features, levels, music, sound, models, and textures.

    Please keep an eye out for City 7: Toronto Conflict version 2.0

  11. Oh yea, thats Phillip for putting up the walkthrough, all of you who are having troubles with one of more part of the levels please see the walkthrough posted above.

    Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half Life 1, 2 and 3
    Our story starts in Kleiner’s Lab with the teleport experiment going wrong again; only this time it transports Gordon Freeman to a different city.

    Chapter 1: Lastman Square
    After the beginning cut-scene, Freeman lands on his feet amidst one of the largest opening sets ever seen in a HL2 custom mod. This is all new stuff and no doubt taken from an actual location, guessing Toronto but having never been there I don’t know for sure. It’s also the cleanest city ever to be seen in any HL2 game, but then this is Canada.

    As already stated, this is a large set that is well worth wandering around to both sight-see and pick up hints and weapons to help progress. However, be warned! It won’t be long before the Combine realize who you are. The design and layout of Lastman Square is a fine piece of mapping with a crisp and clean look to the surrounding buildings and a central formation of levels and meeting points with gathering citizens eager to converse.

    You will need to fight your way through swarms of Combine once you set the alarm off taking whatever cover you can until you find the means to progress beyond the Square.

    If the opening Chapter is typical of the design level and gameplay to come, then we are in for a great ride north of the border.

    Chapter 2: T.T.C Subway (Toronto Transit City Subway)
    Don’t you just love it when authors do something different? In this case, we’re presented with a unique piece of mapping set aboard the subway train of the Toronto Transit System. If anyone had said to me prior to playing the mod, “Look the story calls for a subway train journey with all the action taking place aboard a moving train”, I would have thought, it aren

    Thanks Roozbeh, I am pleased you found the review complete and accurate, City 7 being my mod of the year for 2007.
    I will respond to the video asap, however, I am knee deep in paper work with buying a new house, so not finding too much time for much else. Nevertheless I am very interested in the final solution.

    Whilst on the subject are there any PP readers that have finished the end scene without a cheat, if so I would like to hear from you.

    Thanks Roozbeh, I am pleased you found the review complete and accurate, City 7 being my mod of the year for 2007.
    I will respond to the video asap, however, I am knee deep in paper work with buying a new house, so not finding too much time for much else. Nevertheless I am very interested in the final solution.Whilst on the subject are there any PP readers that have finished the end scene without a cheat, if so I would like to hear from you.

    Played on normal and finished without a cheat (and without reading the spoilers or seeing the video) in the 5th try. First 3 tries were in the tower located closest to you when you get into the courtyard. Seeing that I was constantly getting killed by the combines before I could bring down the helicopter I decided to try another tower and it happened that I went exactly to the tower shown in the video. That tower is different – the combine shoot at you from a different angle and their AI is preventing them to moving to a more favorable angle so they weren’t so much of a nuissance and I could concentrate on the helicopter. On normal I only needed to make one trip downstairs to recharge. To me the final battle was of a reasonable difficulty for a final boss.

    This is a very nice mod but quite uneven. Some sets are better designed than the others but they are all quite linear in some places and don’t feel as intricate compared to other mods. Still very nice gameplay throughout. I liked the scripted events in the beginning and had no difficulty figuring out how to get through it. And I also liked the accuracy of the architecture – I am a Torontonian myself :-)

    I very much enjoyed this mod and appreciate the efforts put into it – unfortunately I cannot give it the highest rating because of the bugs that I have experienced – in my opinion a top mod should not have such bugs. Let me explain.

    First bug is the buggy going through the combine field on Yonge Street. I noticed this by mistake, as I was trying to kill some combines by bumping into them in one of the side corridors that also had a field. Came out of the corridor, tried the main field and it went through it as well. I was surprised but continued, finished the level and went to the next one. Given that whenever available I use the read the walkthrough after each level to see what I missed I did the same thing now and was really unhappy to see what I missed. Went back and played the level again the proper way so I can get the crossbow.

    The second bug is in the scripted scene with the strider. I don’t know what happened first time but believe me there was no crate of rockets where it should have been – or maybe there was something blocking access to it, I don’t know. Spent a lot of time, tried all possible things then decided to replay the whole sequence and here it is! Not nice…

    The third bug is when your weapons are taken. Being that am I quite stubborn I managed to get the super gravity gun – took it into my hands like any other object, got out of that room, put it on the floor, walked over it – I may have done it a few times but in the end it got into my inventory of weapons. Of course the first thing I tried it on was a stalker and the game promptly crashed on game – this is HL2 so the stalkers don’t have ragdolls and the game crashes when managing to kill one. So I continued through the level trying to avoid picking up stalkers which was quite hard as at times they sit next to combines. When I finished the level I read the walkthrough again and figured out that I should not have been able to do that at which point I got really pissed off. I bit more testing done by other people than the mod creators always helps guys!

    Given the above problems I am only rating this

    as I said it is a very nice mod but the bugs detract a lot from the experience.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. Unfortunatly we only had about 6 guys working on this and we had a very tight deadline as this was done for a thesis project and had to be done in one semester. Some things were rushed to get finished and in the end we didn’t get a lot of new people to do the beta testing.

    Fortunatly now, the team has got together to improve this to the extent we are all happy with and continue it on all the way to and on top of the CN tower.

    We now have a much bigger team and the version 2 of the mod is in full swing.

    [Caution -- SPOILERS]

    Awesome… one of the best hl2 mods I’ve played.
    A number of memorable place designs. Maybe that comes of starting from real places?
    I only regret that I have never been to Toronto (only Hamilton), so didn’t recognize the places from real life.
    The modeling seems very detailed and true-to-life.Tim Hortons was one of my favorite places from visiting Ontario. What a kick to see it in the game — complete with donuts! That you can throw at elite combine. :-)
    The guards’ muttered conversations with each other throughout the game were pretty funny; made all the better by the fact that you were not forced to stay and listen to them.One nit is that in the really big open spaces, like the initial square, and the place you battle a gunship and APC, the game puts high demands on your graphics card. On my machine at least… a 2006 top-of-the-line business laptop (woop-de-doo)… polygons were dropping like flies. But I guess big spaces are one of the hazards of modeling after a real city.There were a couple of places where the action lagged. One was the square where you start; if you don’t follow the right NPC’s at the right times, you can end up wandering around pointlessly, talking to people before they’re ready to talk to you, and getting killed without a clue.
    Another place was where you don the combine cop mask. (Actually, the first time I picked up that mask it became a crobar in my hand. Second time worked right.) I love the idea of disguising yourself as a combine (as in The Citizen … don’t know which came first). But that sequence seemed to go on longer

    That said, City 7 overall is a great piece of work. The subway train sequence is one of the most engaging I can remember.
    I would be happy to play this mod again in a month or two, something I don’t usually bother to do.

    Merely plugging half-life 2 into real places is a nice idea, but that alone can produce some really boring and unplayable maps. City 7, by contrast, remains interesting and builds intensity right up to the climax.
    Big kudos to the modeling / programming / animation team on a great mod, a credit to George Brown U’s Game Design program.

    Good mod, but not so enjoyable at times. The Start where you witness a rebellion is confusing, although parts like the subway and the section on the train are very cool indeed :)

    The only real problem I had is the large pit near the end…. it ran about 10fps on my P4 3.2ghz 2gb DDR2 and 6600GT

    I played this a few months ago, and while not technically perfect, It had quite a lot of interesting ideas and places. It’s obvious that the quality is not uniform throughout the whole thing, so some parts stand out above the rest. There’s a lot of custom content, which is one of the things that actually motivate me to play a map or mod.
    Architecturally speaking, I think there was a disconnection between the concept of some maps and how they were actually implemented. This usually means areas that seem too big because they are too empty.
    Gameplay wise I thought the beginning and the end were too difficult, but most of it was enjoyable. The little generators with sparks in the street, the hospital area, the subway ride etc.
    As with most maps and mods, it could’ve done with a lot of polishing in terms of lighting and texturing, which is step nº 1 towards getting rid of that too big/empty feeling.
    I know how hard it is to make something like this (I can’t even model myself) so congratulations to the authors.

    To many go this way,then go that way and lift you’re leg to fart. lol
    I liked the “Combine Teleportation Center (boss / last level)”. That’s about the only part that I really liked.
    I like a game where I can figure out what my next move is. This mod had to many moves!

    I really liked this mod. There were plenty of “holy crap” moments, and lots of reloading, as well as some “what the heck am I supposed to do now?” sections which I always managed to figure out.

    The only part I didn’t like was when I had the Combine suit on–it was kind of hard to see with the eye holes moving around on me, even though the mask is translucent. Also, after I killed the hunter-chopper at the end, it took me awhile to figure out what I was supposed to do. It seemed like it took me as long to figure that out as it did to kill the chopper…

    I can only add my voice to those who have expressed their enjoyment of this mod. Several new and inventive passages which I have never seen before as in the hospital disguised as a city cop. The combat was pretty tough as I usually play on medium. The mod made you use your powers of deduction in places but you can do it without the assistance of the walkthrough. I found the ‘boss’ battle exciting but just a little hard. I had the boss helicopter down to the second co-pilot and he was down to his third pair of underwear but never could I finish him off – so I had to cheat just a teensy weensy little bit at the end. By that time the game and I had both bled each other white so I am not too guilt ridden. The extra content at the end is clever and worth a look. It is definitely a mod you should play first chance you get.

    I am not sure how exactly to set this one up. I’ve managed to get many a mod to work, but this one seems to be a bit different.

    Do I merely put this in sourcemods or must I add this to the files in HL2?

    Kinda confused here. Any help as to how to get this one working will be much appreciated.

      SourceMods folder. It may have its own installer–if so, it put it in the correct place for me (which is not on my C: drive).

        Thanks, turns out the download cut short and never gave me all the necessary stuff, hence me being confused as heck. XD

        I got everything now, so I’ll give a review later on. :)

      Hmmm…

      It runs fine, but I’m missing a lot of textures. I’m going to redownload this and hope that I get everything this time.

        I DLed it from the college’s web site (didn’t know about Phillip’s links for some reason). I had to babysit the download because it cut off after 20 minutes, just like things used to work…

    Yep, this is definitely one of my favorites.

    Good use of puzzles, got fairly tricky at times.

    I liked the first part, was a tad confused at first, but gradually learned what was going on.

    I also liked that the beginning was a bit of a tutorial level. Don’t really see those all that much. Reminded me of the original HL2.

    Enemies where particularly clever, often using cover and shooting me from high places. I had to use tactics to survive, rather than standard run-n-gun methods.

    Loved that trap in the train. I lost a substantial amount of health to it, but continued regardless.

    Final Battle was indeed tricky, but certainly doable. Super gravity gun definitely came in handy.

    Give it a go people, you won’t be disappointed.

    I downloaded the game. I installed the mod. I open it up. Beautiful except. My HUD display is no present. I have tried commands in the dev console but I notice at the beginning of all of the commands (when the game loads) state that certain HUD files are not found. Is the download not working properly or was it something on my end? I put all the files in the SourceMods folder I have. Please let me know asap. Thanks again. Cant wait to play

    I’ve really been enjoying this game but I’ve been having a bit of an issue at the beginning of Chapter 7. When walking down the hall, as soon as I see the first combine come around the corner, the game crashes. Does anyone know how I might be able to fix this? Thanks.

    Play It Now!

    I thought I’ve already reviewed this one? Well, this was very good, the whole beginning is simply fabulous, the stealth mission is cool, the final is very explosive.

    The most awesome level is the train station, I’ve hoped for that in HL2 and it was finally done in a mod, and really well-done!

    Overall, a PIN!

    I have always wanted to play a mod that takes place in a REAL LIFE CITY! I’m still waiting for mods to take place in: Miami, New York, Las Vegas, Hollywood, San Francisco, Washington DC, Tokio Japan, Paris France, and many more! Maybe even the cities from Grand Theft Auto! ;)

    Well, this mod looked awesome, but I encountered a small problem. No one will talk to me.

    I’m serious! I checked my face for headcrabs and everything! People that walkthroughs say should be talking to me in the beginning and saying anything to me. I’ve downloaded both downloads off of the listed website, and get the same error. Anyone seen this problem before?

    It’s also possible that my download was goobered. Does anyone have a mirror?

    Thank you very much in advance!

      Valve don’t care about excellent mods like City 7, their mod-unfriendly updates have killed it. But don’t give up! There is an easy fix, probably the easiest way is to download Silvermink’s zip which does it all for you: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=15679113&postcount=60
      Simply extract the patch’s City 7 folder and then merge it with your existing one in your Steamapps/Sourcemods folder, overwriting all when prompted. Next close then restart steam, run the mod & enjoy! (Until the next time Valve kills it.) Just tested it, works ok. Take a moment to enjoy the ‘adverts’ & de-motivational posters on the inside of the tube train.. priceless! A gem of a mod, such a shame V2 died.

    How do we get this mod? I can’t find a download for it anywhere.

    • I’ll transfer the file to my server this weekend and make a working download. You should be aware that since its release many things have change on Steam and the mod probably won’t run.

        Thanks I really apreciate it. Too bad V2 was never released as the videos I watched of V1 on youtube are simply amazing. Great job.

    Where you able to find the files yet?

    • Sorry. I’ll be completely honest and say I totally forgot. I have found the file but haven’t uploaded it yet.
      I promise to do that tomorrow morning, when I have allocated some time to the site. I have to convert the format before I do it. I’ll send you an email to the address used in this comment once it’s live.

  50. This mod now has a working download. Please read the important note about it BEFORE you try to install and play it.
