A single player City 17 Idol Map.
Channel 17 Preview:
HL2 Map by JimmyD
From the author of the Holy Grail maps (also on filefront) comes a look at one of the TV shows that the lucky citizens of City 17 get to entertain themselves with.
About - Doctor Breen, in an attempt to make a popular television program, attempts to find the best singer in City 17; to do so, he launches a competition, where contestants have to sing to impress the judge (sound familiar yet?), with his bestest buddy the G-Man as the sole arbitor (with the voice of Simon Cowell).
It's only a small scene, but it's a preview for another project I'm working on at the moment: Channel 17. I thought that they can't spend ALL day watching Dr Breen talking and talking, so they must have some other kind of program - I'm engineering a humorous look at what they show on television in City 17. Still trying to think up other ideas for programs, I'm open to suggestions for what people watch on TV in this lovely dystopia.
Anyone who fancies helping with the Channel17 Project should drop me a line as well - I need other voices!
Instructions - To use this in HL2, put the contents of "maps" into the HL2 folder of maps
e.g. ...SteamAppsusernamehalf-life 2hl2maps
Put the content of the "scenes" folder into HL2's scenes
e.g. ...SteamAppsusernamehalf-life 2hl2scenes [ch17]
(MAKE SURE THE SUB-FOLDERS STAY THE SAME, OR IT WON'T BE ABLE TO FIND THE FILES!)
Put the contents of "materials" into your materials folder of hl2, making sure to keep them inside the "idolatry" folder within materials.
e.g. ...SteamAppsusernamehalf-life 2hl2materials [idolatry]
DON'T TAKE THEM OUT OF "IDOLATRY" FOLDER, OTHERWISE IT WON'T BE ABLE TO FIND THEM
And, finally, drop the folder inside "sounds" into the sound folder. Don't take the sounds out of the "Channel17Sime" folder that they're in, when it's inside the sound folder, otherwise the scene won't be able to find the sound.
e.g. ...SteamAppsusernamehalf-life 2hl2sound [channel17Sime]
(ONCE AGAIN, MAKE SURE THE SOUNDS STAY IN THEIR SUB-FOLDERS)
To play the level, open the console in HL2, then type "map idolatry.bsp" (no speech marks). The map should start up, and Dr Breen and co should start
