There's no story at all to this mod. It's just new 4 maps to play through. There is scripted sentences but i just mostly chose them just for entertainment in my mod. The player is of course Gordon Freeman. In this mod you'll play through a new location Sky Mesa. I have custom prefabs but most of them i have 'borrowed'. This mod was created all by me.

It's a third party mod for half life. It isn't an official mod or anything.

Just ran through the mod and I figure I might as well give you a few pointers rather than review it as I normally would.

1. First and foremost, try and work in a little story, even if it's just text on screen. Give your player something to work towards.

2. Work with a standard grid in hammer for the majority of your architecture. (16 x 16 unit grid is best imo) There were a lot of areas where I could see single unit gaps with a sky texture behind them. I can only assume the maps had a load of LEAK errors and you resolved it by putting a skybox around the entire thing. This is not a good idea. It can massively increase compile times and cause the game to lag. (I believe you mentioned one of the maps was laggy for you. This could be the cause)

3. Apply logic to your maps. Every room should have a purpose, even if it's just in the details. Try to work from photographs to get an idea of how to lay certain rooms out. This map pack was just a series of killboxes really. There was no purpose to any of the rooms at all.

In any case, a good first attempt, but hopefully my advise and that of others will drive you to creating better maps in future. :)

I've just finished playing it. It was a fun first project :)
I loved Luther's office, with the CD rack, poster and hidden button under the desk!

As 2muchvideogames said, it's basic and rough, but that's expected of a first map pack (I made a couple like this, although I didnt finish them), and the more you do, the more you'll improve your brush building and the complexity of your maps. You've got the basics down.

I thought the chamber at the end with all the soldiers and ninjas was a bit over the top. A larger area with more cover and room to move would have been more fair.

Good job!

A fine half life mod, very entertaining.

Good texturing, interesting level design, game difficulty well balanced.

Can be improved a bit more in some details.

No evident glitches nor crashes during the gameplay. I still play it whenever I have some spare time.

I like it.
