RADIATOR is a semi-episodic short form single player experimental alt mod for HL2:Ep2 trying to bridge the gaping canyon between Tale of Tales and commercial game design. VOLUME 1, "MORE MATTER," is the FPS without any shooting, the story of Dylan and James in California; stargaze, repress and rationalize. The third part of the trilogy will be released soon. Hopefully.

Hey everyone. Long time no see!

I've finished Radiator! Well, kind of. It still feels very unfinished to me in a lot of ways, but I decided to just package it and upload it for release anyway. You can download it for Windows / Mac / Linux over here: Radiatoryang.itch.io -- it is also playable by ANYONE WITH A STEAM ACCOUNT because it is based off the free Source SDK Base 2013 Single Player, which any Steam user can access.

Also: I don't really use ModDB anymore -- if you want to contact me, please see my website: Debacle.us

Thanks for playing, and I hope the third chapter was worth the 6 year wait!

FAQ or something:
1) It's for Ep2. ModDB won't let me change it.
2) 1-3 is still in progress.
3) The new Ep2 update broke how I unlocked chapters. (Steamcloud, etc.) Go into the console and type "sv_unlockedchapters 15" (or beat Episode 2) to unlock HWC. It's fixed for 1-3.
4) Simmer down.
5) It means whatever you want it to mean.

I am having the exact same problem! I played through Polaris twice but both times I go back to the title menu. I try to start a new game then but the second episode is still grayed out and unselectable. Anybody know what's going on?

try typeing sv_unlockchapters 15 in the consol(~), just a thought... Oh and one other thing make sure the name of the map in the maps folder is the same name as the map in the chapter.cfg in the config folder. Hope that helps :)

This mod is confusing as hell. The secound chapter, where the scenerio is about 2 gay couples getting councling help, when I get into the guy's head, everytime I put the boxes where they are suppose to, the female councler tells me I'm not being civil and not nice "to my partner". Everytime I break the box, it seems like I'm making a point there and being nice.

At the end, it seems like the gay couples break up and that's the end?? I don't get this mod at all!! Someone please help. D:

if you dont destroy the boxes, put them on the right place, they will stay together ^^
and he says "i never knew you felt like that" or something, so maybe in all the anger when oppressing the stressful memories he also talks about how he feels and says important stuff that makes his partner understand and still wants to be together
while if you destroy the memories i imagine you will talk ******** and the partner decides he wants a divorce

Not at all. Destroying the boxes releases the protagonists emotions; the therapist gives you positive reinforcement, while at the same time this further drives in the wedge between James and Dylan.

On the flip side, if you refuse to open up, they stay together. Take from that what you will.

A beautiful mod that presents a very enjoyable change from more "typical", gameplay-oriented pieces (not to say those can't be enjoyable, of course. It's just that this mod, to me, was a great and unexpected experience). Certainly deserves attention.
