Report article RSS Feed Half life 2: Deep Down Released!

The (Valve Steampipe Beta Only) Version 1.0 of Half Life 2: Deep Down is finally available!

Posted by Jim_Partridge on May 25th, 2013

Finally made it over the finish line after a drama filled few weeks of technical issues with Source SDK. Deep Down is my attempt to recreate the game-play and style of Episode 2. I had no idea it would be so challenging. I must have lost days of my life trawling through audio files trying to find just the right phrase for each moment. Someone should seriously catalog this stuff.

In this mod you'll find 5 maps filled with combat and puzzles and hopefully some things you haven't seen before. I'm calling this version 1.0 as I'm sure there's room for improvement.

I hope you enjoy playing this as much as I enjoyed making it.

Ooh one more thing.

There are several hidden unofficial achievements built into the mod and I'll let the community at large figure them out.

The mod rewards curiosity so keep your eyes peeled and explore all you can...

wow, great to see you have released it Jim.
also great that you did find your way through all those troubles with yet another corrupted Valve update.

As you know am i not able to play this right now because of the files i have in my ep2 folder for my own mod. Still, in a week or 2 i will install ep2 again for my own mod, and then i will play yours for sure because i really liked playing the first level of it.

hope many people will download it,
Leon

what did you do to work on your mod again? I'd just started working on a new mod. But since Valve... Updated all their Half-life 2 game to steam pipe beta. I can't use hammer since source sdk are broken...

And i just played your mod. And it was great!

Sorry for my bad english.

I used the SDK for Episode 1 to finish this and extracted all models and materials in Episode 2 into the Episode 1 folder structure.

There's several entities you won't be able to add like Magnusson or Hunters.. but the rest of it is all good.

Did you convert episode 2 to Steampipe Beta?
If so then this is very strange.
Try opening the console and typing "map ep2_deepdown_1"
That should get you started...

Looks like a fun mod. I was just watching a play-thru on YT and it made me come here to snag it.
