In case people are still following the page- I've been posting updates to my blog for the project at least once a month. I've been busy with a new job but I may be able to secure additional help with the added funds at some point.

Prison has gone through a few more iterations to fix up some nagging issues with the gasworks puzzle and a couple of new wrinkles to ensure the Combine can keep surprising the player with their cleverness.

The other big news is I started Superstructure, which is probably one of the biggest-scale projects I've ever done in Source. It's a lot of brush and displacement work and progress on the art side can be agonizingly slow, but I'm making progress. I'll be sure to keep updating you all as I get things worth talking about.

I have my development rig back up and running! I've been working on a CS:GO map for a bit as well, which I may backport some of the layout to one of the maps in this mod. But yes, I am still working on Five and still intend to finish it. :)

Ain't dead till I say I am.

Is this a final version? Is there an ending? I got to a point where there's a gate with a skeleton in front of it and a button to the left, pressed the button, everything fades out and then back in with no discernible change. Just wondering if this is still a work in progress.

Correct! This level is intended to be the third or fourth in a series of maps that will ship with the full mod. I released this map on the anniversary of HL2E3 so everyone would have something to play because Valve wasn't about to release anything HL related. It's still in testing and I'm going to be tweaking and reworking things before releasing another build, and ideally speaking I'd like to get the next version out with other maps, such as the maps preceding this one in the story.

Also, sorry about the sloppy fadeout. The day I released it I wasn't on a computer where I could tweak that. It was a spur of the moment decision on a public computer.

The final product will be much more polished if I can help it.

The .ZIP has lots of documentation, but I'll make it easier here:

The main file is five_prison_int22.bsp
Move that into your steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life 2/ep2/maps folder. Upon being run, the map will build a .ain file for the NPC navmesh. Be sure to buildcubemaps in the console as well if you experience visual problems.

The other files are .vmfs that are previous map iterations, included both for completeness and research purposes. If you use my sources for other projects, please be sure to credit me! :)

Hello! Welcome and thank you for checking out this mod page!

Within the next 2 days, a map for the game will be released. It is a beta stage map that's still not quite finished testing, but I wanted to get a map in the wind for analysis since today marks the 10th anniversary of Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

If you'd like to skip waiting for ModDB, I've hosted the map on a public link on Google Drive here:
