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

Apparently taking place during Gordon’s absence after the fall of Nova Prospekt, the story seems is centred around one man, John, a Resistance member who was injured in a fire fight and brought by his friends to the outskirts of Ravenholm to recover. None of them remember how to get out of Ravenholm, and it’s up to John to fight his way through.

    Excellent HL2 Sourcemod with intresting gameplay & puzzles & spoiler When you complete the mod you can play it again with the Bonus weapon The Gravity Gun to get hidden treasures marked with the HL 2 symbol
    Def worth the Download

    I’m stuck already… I just started the “Canals” level, and I’m in a pool of water, where I loaded four blue bouyant barrels into a grate thingy, which rose to the surface of the water… now what?

    I prefer playing mostly against combines, and this is the opposite, however I still rate it higher than Leon’s CTA. I’d say a 9 out of 10.

    While its difficult, the key thing here is that the developer never lost sight of gameplay balance throughout. Its possible to play this without getting mad at the developer! There are many things to think through, puzzles to solve and ways to approach things. Nice work!

    A really enjoyable experience with everything beeing well balanced a new enemi (or kind of) a good storyline that keeps you busy, small puzzle and fight (mostly zombies and monsters) all well put together

    Recommended!

  7. It’s a good experience to a half life gamer. The name does honor for the mod un every single aspect: obscure creepy ambient, lot of cadavers (the walking with a headcrab leeching the head too XD), and plenty ammo, making it more tactical.

    There’s a new enemy. And new traps. You cant use the gravity gun until you win the game at least ONE TIME, making it a bonus. The mapping is decent to very good in some parts. Good challenge in enemies positions and puzzles.

    Bad thing? maybe if you are a CS (casual) gamer who says “I didn’t like Ravenholm: there wasn’t too many soldiers too fight OMG Ravenholm level sux” you’ll not enjoy this. BUT in exchange, the parts where are soldiers and a chopper are very well.

    4/5, but if you are the ‘CS gamer kind of player I said’ maybe you’ll not enjoy this.

    ** SPOILER ALERT ** ** SPOILER ALERT **
    ** SPOILER ALERT ** ** SPOILER ALERT **

    Please be warned: This comment contains spoilers related to this mod.

    For the most part, I enjoyed this mod. Some random comments:

    It’s huge–it seemed to be a game unto itself, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was longer than some full games I’ve played.

    I could have done without the frequent sabotage. For example, I’d jump down, and be instantly killed by exploding barrels with a tripwire. Or, I’d walk through a doorway, and be killed by some other trap. And so on. And on. To me, a good rule of thumb to be used when creating a map is that if while creating it you laugh to yourself about how it will mess with the player, it may not be a good idea.

    By 3/4 through the game, I was rrrrrrrreally tired of those fast zombies! They’ve always unnerved me. :)

    Some parts were pretty difficult to figure out. I got stuck for at least awhile several times.

    The creators of this mod gave in to the utterly-overused clich

    Now I’m stuck. How do I proceed to the next area? I’m just past the part in Ravenholm02 after I turn the rotating blade on, go through the little tunnel way & a dead guy hanging in a tree drops from the rope. There’s also a metal water tower there as well. No doors work, I’ve tried stacking boxes to get to the ledge, it doesn’t work either. I think I know where I’m supposed to go, I just can’t figure out to get from point A to point B.

    Thats one of the niche’s of Ravenholm…
    they don’t make an easy route to the next area. I had to stack boxes several times to jump over a wall or get to the top of a building… I don’t remember the exact area you are in…?
    Do you see the area in one of the photos in my review?

    Here’s a five words or less review: Ridiculously difficult and boring.

    Chianti wasn’t kidding when he/she said that it gets more difficult the further you progress. Too much puzzle solving & not enough action for my tastes. While I enjoy puzzles, I don’t like the ones that rack your brain for a long period of time. I’ll admit I have good days and bad days & most times (and I stress most), I can figure it out. I don’t like having to stack boxes upon boxes or even doing that and it’s not the solution to begin with! I’ve only made it past the canals part, but I’m hanging my hat up on this one. There just isn’t enough action to hold my interest and it’s just too hard in other aspects. One thing is for sure, the developer(s) sure got the ambience and level design right & make you feel right at home in Ravenholm.

    22nd May 2007

    Don’t give up Goddess! There is a lot more action if you keep going. There are some great scripted events too…
    It definitely gets harder, but you know how it is… you die a few times and re-load… by the 5th time you know how to beat-em!
    You’re missing some great stuff later in the mod.

    Booman, I’ve just read the letter about some guy in a lab but I have no clue where to go next. Everything seems to be a dead end and I am so incredibly bored with it right now. I have to admit, I’m not a big zombie fan. Ravenholm was nice in HL2 because it was fast paced & didn’t leave you running around clueless for half an hour. I’m just thinking of all the stuff I could have done in that half hour like a load of laundry, dishes, sweeping & vaccuming, swaying in my hammock tonight sipping wine, hearing eerie sounds in the woods like The Blair Witch Project; sipping more wine so I’ll really be hearing eerie sounds in the woods and then believe I actually saw a witch.

    Its been a couple of months since I played it so its hard to remember…
    Have you been through the forests yet?
    I think the lab is right before that. In the lab you have to break the windows and jump through while killing some of those black headcrabs. Then next is the scary dark forest.
    I didn’t think it was boring at all. I actually thought some parts were way too hard, but I kept at it and finished it.

  21. Goddess Alyria 416 comments

    23rd May 2007

    Nope, no forests yet. Just buildings. I don’t know where to go to look for the lab. Everywhere I turn seems a dead end unless I go back where to I came from (canals). Frustrating!

    29th May 2007

    Goddess Alyria, I got stuck in the same part you initially mentioned (the part with the guy hanging from a rope). It was annoying to me…as it always annoys me to be stuck for more than about 5 minutes. I think I was stuck in that spot for at least a half hour, maybe more (given my lack of a sense of time, it may have actually been an hour or more).

    The forest sections started getting old to me by the time I was done. Walking around and around and around…and around. Oh, what’s this? The ten-billionth zombie!

  24. Goddess Alyria 416 comments

    29th May 2007

    I know what you mean Chianti. And what’s up with not being able to RUN? A bit silly if you ask me. I understand the maker wanting you to take your time & think your way out of the mess, but in the vast outdoor sections after you’ve encountered that ten-billionth zombie & become bored with it, you wanna hoof it to the next part.

    In all fairness, I’m replaying the whole thing again now that I know where my errors were getting stuck because it really took away from the experience for me. Incredible level design. I think my favorite parts were the traps. I’m sure a lot of thinking went into that.

    Maybe?

    It was OK, I suppose. I know some find the length to be a strong point, but I thought the mod could have been shortened a little. It got to the point where I was saying to myself “There’s MORE?! Oh no…”

    By the end, I hated fast zombies more than any other enemy in any game I have ever played (yes, I hate them even more than the Berserker from Gears of War). Most of the time, two or more of the little buggers would jump out in front of me while I was already fighting a huge horde of regular zombies and various types of headcrabs. I finally had to turn on god mode because I was getting sick of the constant attacks.

    The puzzles were fairly well done, though some of them had solutions that were less than obvious. Some parts of the game had hidden exits that I just could not find. I finally turned on “noclip” and went to an overhead view so I could see where to go.

    The storyline wasn’t great and some parts were left out or unexplained. The part that annoyed me the most was these “phantasms”. They didn’t add anything to the game, in my opinion. Plus, WHY was the character having visions??? Some of it needed to be explained a little better.

    I understand English isn’t the game’s native language, but if you’re going to translate something, get someone who can speak English fluently. The messages in the game were sometimes hard to understand and it seemed as though the author used BabelFish to translate everything.

    Overall, if you like spending a long time wandering around a dead town fighting hordes of zombies in a game with a bad storyline and badly translated subtitles, then go ahead and download it. I can’t really say “Avoid it” since there were parts that I found fun. But, I’ll go with…

    Play It Now!

    Finished playing this last night – it is a very long mod – I played on normal and it took me more than 10 hours to complete. I cannot have enough praise for the makers of this mode – let me explain.When I first played HL2, Ravenholm drove me nuts – dark and scary, not enough ammo and stupid as I am I never really considered using the Gravity Gun as a weapon – yep, I’m an idiot.

    Interestingly enough when you first play this mod you have no Gravity Gun either – you have to rely on your weapons and the ammo is pretty scarce so trust your crowbar, note where the explosive barrels are to shoot them at the right time for maximum effectiveness and pay attention to the traps that are already set and ready for you to use. Given that I played the original Ravenholm in the same circumstances I can say with confidence that this mod is far better. The map layout is very good, puzzles are great (and many :-)) and the difficulty increases in a very nice progression towards the end. Although I have played on normal I haven’t died much and was able to complete even the most difficult battles on the second or third try even though it gets pretty hairy at times.

    Those that like to explore will be rewarded with all kinds of goodies hidden all over. Although I have found a lot I am not so sure I got them all – I believe I should have gotten the crossbow at some point because I found some ammo – however I still managed without it; there was also some AR-2 ammo but I only got the AR-2 before the very last battle – and I put it to good use :-)

    The fun factor is also there – what could be more fun than having an infinite box of rockets to shoot poison zombies and their minions?

    Overall I have been extremely satisfied with this mod and I think I’ll rate it just a tad higher than Coastline to Atmosphere – so right up there at top with Minerva.

    And special kudos to the developers for more than 10 hours of play in a 70MB mod :-)

    Forgot to add something: there is a bug that I found – when you meet the second antlion queen, the tower fells and it is supposed to kill it – this may not work all the time. If it doesn’t die, the game will crash shortly after. If this happens to you try to position yourself in such a way before the tower falls as to draw the antlion to the middle of the open space (not to the sides) where it will get killed!

    love the game so far but I am very stuck in the canal-the water is electric and I can see no way across to the walkway on the other side. There is a zombie in the water which is no problem but how do I make it across this. I tried shooting out the switch and that failed. I tried many times to cross on the wall pipes but they stop short. How do I cross this? Thanks Rob ,Vancouver Wa.

      In the area where you can see the three switches,jump on the railing and then jump onto that slim pipe that goes across to the switch.
      I tried coming back the same way after I turned off the power but could not make the jump back from that pipe to the railing .

    I remember that section now.Just gotta not fall in the water but still stack up crates to get on the platform.Then you need 1 box on the platform to jump to the ledge.

  34. Robspace1 190 comments

    19th July 2008

    well, I tried going that way but didn’t have enough boxes to make it out. I did make it to the switch but there were only 2 movable boxes to throw over the rail. I ended up on the other side throwing down boxes and making it over to the swinging platform then hopping up. After that the door cam be opened and the switch shut off. I was lacking maybe one box from making it out your way-I probably smashed it on the way in, something I,m learning not to do in this mod. All boxes become steps.

    A really nice mod. I didn’t expect to much at the beginning because of the crappy mapping. But throughout the game you could really tell Lord making progress!! You always knew what you were supposed to be doing and you could tell Lord knew he was doing with his story and everything. Valve also said, messing up Ravenholms environment is easy with adding rebels and combines, however this mod showed this doesn’t always have to be true. A sequel has also finally been released: Eye of the storm.

      Late answer, but sentry man you need to find a mine, so keep close to the rocks surrounding you. I think the mine entry is along your right side when you enter the forest.

    This mod is just like the kind of mod I like. I enjoyed every moment of it, but I saw just two small problems. 1 – There’s a canal part where I had to use Noclip because I really couldn’t find a way to get out there, It’s a room with some big grates in front of you and just after it there’s a room where you trigger various zombies. 2 – The forest and foggy area was pretty laggy at the time, could have improved a bit on it, and one thing that really got my nerves was the kinda of fast respawn of zombies and headcrabs. Overall It’s a nice mod and I really like it. I’am waiting for the second episode of It’s successor, Eye of the Storm or something like that heh.

    I’m stuck in the electrified area too. i’ve seen hints that you should throw boxes into the water but this makes no sense because when i try to jump onto them they smash and if i try to jump on a barrel then it conducts the electricity and if i try to jump on the pallet it just sinks into the elecrified water. can anyone help please ?

    I FINALLY got through this

    I found this site that has some tips.

    http://hotkey.net.au/~snows/index.html

    Basically i was able to deduce from the pictures that you’re supposed to have loads of boxes to play with, that for some reason were missing for me. I restarted the level and they were there when i reached that room the next time around.
    There’s apparently two ways to do this ways to do this. Dump all the spare boxes and barrels in the right hand room then use the right hand ledge to get across to turn off the electric you then need to stack the boxes and barrels to get out of that section because there’s no ladder. with the electric off you can then easily get across the left hand part after killing the zombie)

    or the way i did it, (because I couldn’t get across the ledge) you can leave the electricity on, kill the zombie then carefully make your way across the left hand room stacking and moving boxes as you go. The tricky bit is getting a box onto the swinging platform and getting up on it from there to climb over the railing. But it can be done.

    Personal Favourite

    I have played this mod very many times because I have an ambition to beat all the good mods which means not going back to saves including auto-saves.
    I’m not a lover of fighting the spawn of Ravenholm. I prefer fighting Combine who at least have the decency of killing you with a weapon instread of tearing your face off.
    This, though is very different and with room for exploration and the use of tactics.
    I enjoyed it all the more, the more times I played it. A very, very good mod indeed. If you have not played it, you really should.
    If you want to give it a go(thoroughly recommended), the PP filecloud download link will not work. Instead click on ‘Lord Games’ just above it.
    On the landing page click for the english version.
    On the next page go to the first entry
    “Ravenholm in French, Spanish, German and Russian Lord – 2.19.2006
    All promised languages are available to download! Look at section download.
    Click on download and you will find an English version – even though not mentioned above.
    It’s the date of the version that is vital, 2.19.2006 because it’s the de-bugged version.

    How can there be an Antlion Guard in Ravenholm, but not a single Antlion is spotted in Ravenholm? Also, I was upset that there was only one Father Grigori appearance, but I’m glad he’s still alive.

    I could use some help in the area when you meet up with michael, it looks like you need to blow the back door out of the building with all the gas barrels and the big gas line, and the flame throwers, I’ve put the battery in the one, but they won’t stay lit, I’ve dropped the beams but they don’t do anything, any help would be appreciated, thanks

      I’ve got this problem as well. I enter the room with all the exploding barrels, two flamethrower traps, and Michael, but nothing happens. Are zombies supposed to immediately break out? There aren’t any suspicious error messages in the console. I’ve tried everything from blowing up all the barrels to exhausting both flamethrowers, but I feel as if I’m missing something.

      Oh well… time to manually load map 16…

    If you’re in map Ravenholm15, the barrels and flamethrowers are just to help defend against the onslaught of zombies. During the rush a door will open, near the trap with two barrels.

    I did notice once that Michael would not follow (and the game would not let me progress) until, it seemed, the last barrel was exploded.
