For the 4th VERC competition I am 15 years old and from the Western Isles in Scotland. This is my first proper map for Half-Life, I hope you enjoy it. In this map, you get a random mission out of 4, which are assasination, rescue, bomb planting and stopping a convoy.
For the 4th VERC competition (www.valve-erc.com)I am 15 years old and from the Western Isles in Scotland.This is my first proper map for Half-Life, I hope youenjoy it. In this map, you get a random mission out of 4,which are assasination, rescue, bomb planting and stopping a convoy. I know the timing is a little off in some places,that is because I only made this 2 weeks before the competition ended. I know that getting a particular missioncan be annoying, but this is because it is random and thatwas the point of the competition. I am making a full level pack for Half-Life called Red Alert which will be out soon.The HD pack from Blue Shift can be used with this, and I recommend it.

Hahaha wow! I made this forever ago, good to see it still exists!
This is a map by James Coburn, the same guy who made the critically acclaimed mod Echoes (also a personal favourite of mine).
The premise is that each time you load a game, you get a randomly chosen mission with all of these missions taking place on single map. It’s quite a clever concept and it is done in an effective way, I’d like to see a mod like this that expands on this idea, that’d be pretty awesome.
As for the mapping, it’s pretty good, though if you compare it to Echoes then you’ll definitely notice how much Coburn has improved over the years. And the gameplay is fun with a decent challenge to its combat.
Operation Randomosity by James Coburn is a short, but sweet map with a creative concept. I give it an 8/10.
Though it begs the question, will the “Red Alert” mod he teases at the end ever be released?
