Slums 2 is episode 2 engine`s mod. Nine maps, dark and creepy. Nothing innovative in gameplay, but still good regular shooter.

Slums 2 was created by only two men, who were inspired by Silent Hill, Condemned, FEAR games. Mod does not provide new weapons or some special features.

It was 2010 year when the last version of Slums was released. But today, when i got much more experience in level design and painting i decided to remake first 2 maps from original Slums mod (2007).

The first one map is half remaked and i will proceed to work on levels when i will get free time and inspiration. You will see absolutely new fresh and polished Slums with some gameplay and graphics changes, which should like everyone. Some areas (or maybe most of them) will be changed completely. Also, Slums will contain several new puzzles to solve.

The main goal is to make my mod more unique and far from HL2 style (while using HL2 weapons and hostile NPC`s).

Because it will be on 2013 Source engine you will not need to purchase any HL2 game. It will be absolutely free for everyone who have Steam and installed Source SDK 2013 Singleplayer tool (which is also for free).

Here are some screenshots.

I finally figured out the crash issue. I had to rush down the street,
and then turn right into the doorway the CPs came out of. Then the game
did not crash.
I also noticed that the sky in that scene did not have any texture - the
top edges of the buildings would blur and frame-stutter and the sky
faded light to dark when you looked up at it.
Anyway, good mod.

Has anyone had the game crash on them in map slums_5, when the player
has to jump on top of a dumpster, jump a fence, then 3 NPCs join the
player, run down a short street, take out a sniper, then have to fight
two civil patrol members? The game crashes just after the 2nd CP is
killed.

Are there any news on the Slums remake? Or are you fully focused on SH: Alchemilla?

Try this fix:

Search the file "gameinfo.txt" (inside mod directory) and replace all its content with this: Pastebin.com

This mod didn't even start at first. You guys are going to think I am full of it but, being aware of the changes introduced with SteamPipe, I noticed the author of this mod hadn't updated it just yet (so, I was toasted, couldn't play it, right?) Feeling desperate, I copied and pasted the gameinfo.txt file I had used with another mod (Deep Down, mod for Half-Life 2 Episode 2) and IT WORKED! I am playing it now on my Windows 7, 32 bit system. So far so good. :)

The mod is broken for me. I have tried redownloading it several times, but each and every time I try to play the mod, I get this message: Can't find background imagine materials/console/startup_loading.vtf

So, for whatever reason, it looks like the download is missing a file? Is this the case? I looked through all 20 pages of comments and not a single person had this problem. Do you know how to fix it?

This happens cause of new Source 2013 engine and new file system which were developed couple months ago. To be honest, i started to make changes in Slums 2 just because i could not start mod myself.

Just wait for release of Slums Remake and you will play it.

Slums 2 is a fairly short, yet incredibly detailed mod. Gameplay mostly revolves around generic shooting. This may seem boring at first glance, but the general gunplay is from tried and proven Half-Life 2. AI placement is great, considering the cramped setting of the slums. The lack of a story definitely hurt the mod. Adding a simple plot line to explain the strange intro dream, and why the character is fighting his way out of the slums, would greatly increase the immersion. Atmosphere in this mod…

At first i found this mod quite interesting, nice level design, good atmosphere, but after the 5 minute mark I got bored there's no true mission, only shooting combine people like 'Painkiller'. Even then, with 'Painkiller' there were still interesting thing to do like find hidden collectible or get weapons that are interesting I mean, guys who developed Slums 2 you can at least put some new weapons or interesting scripted events which would have blown mind away. Overall it's derivative in nature…
