Humans, Elves and Dwarves live in a world of monsters and greed, their once great cities now dust in the ground, struggling to rebuild while the Orcs that survived Felewyn’s wrath plague the lands. These are the times you live in. Perhaps you can make history, yourself.

This is a little Source Mod you can use to preview some of the WIP maps in MSS. Includes maps by Rickler, Crazyghost, and Supersoup. The map sources are also included in the mod's mapsrc folder. This mod requires the 2007 Source SDK - though the final game is being built under the 2013 Source SDK. If you have Half-Life 2, EP1 and EP2, you should already have this. If not you may be able to download it under your Steam Library->Tools.

Ye standard Half-Life 2 setup plus:
Z - Activate Cheats + God mode (gives you your flashlight, but keeps your hud and viewmodel hidden for screenshot friendliness/immersion.)
X - Toggle no clip

The mod should appear in your library as "Master Sword: Source - Map Showcase"

Includes WIP versions of:
Edana (by Rickler)
CalrianRuins (by Crazyghost)
Daragoth (very WIP, by Supersoup)
Sfor (by Crazyghost)
Thornlands (by Rickler)
Thornspidercaves (Fragment by Rickler)

Each map is setup as its own chapter. (Mind you, the chapter thumbs show up as Half-Life episode thumbs, but meh, tis about the only bug, aside from some missing models and overflow warnings.)

Mind you, there's no code here - it's just a map showcase. So, gameplay wise, this should not reflect on the final product.

Map sauces are included, and should compile on Orangebox or Source SDK 2007 or later.

Like most Source Mods, after running the installer, you'll need to close Steam, and re-open it. It should then appear in the Library as "Master Sword: Source - Map Showcase".

If it doesn't, try going to the Library Tools and download the Source SDK (quickest being 2007), and then restart Steam again.
