Experience Half-Life 2 like never before. Return to City 17, held within the iron grip of the Combine and the Consul. Reunite with old friends, and enemies, and some of them brand new. Immerse yourself in a revitalised combat system featuring old arsenals made new again, with added features to raise the bar in gameplay. You've been waiting for quite some time, now. It's time to climb aboard.
DIV 2 Background Map Competition Entrants, plus a bonus map
This is the zip containing all the entrants to the DIV 2 Background Map Competition, plus a bonus map. Drag and drop the BSPs into your map directory and then start 'em up via the console to take a look. Each entry folder also has an image of the concept art to compare. Tuubi's entry features custom content that must be implemented separately to function properly.
Congrats to the top three entrants:
1. Cvoxulary with rtbrd2_concept_chariots: An inspired and very atmospheric map taking inspiration from a relatively unheard of piece of concept art. All round a great entry and the 1st place winner.
2. Tuubi with rtbrd2_trumpet: A take on the wasteland wall concept. Featuring lots of interactions and scripted events, this map is full of busy activity to watch and enjoy.
3. Suxar with rtbrd2_bgairex: Taking cues from Airex concept art, Suxar produces an atmospheric and oddly calming map, elaborate pipework and all.
There are also two bonus entries:
Cy with rtbrbackground: Although unfinished, Cy has the beginnings of a remake of the Combine wall concept art here and intends to work on it more in the future.
Kralich with background_02: Not an entry to this competition. Before we decided on a competition for the background map of Div 2, we'd begun making our own concept art recreation to put into the mod. Now that it won't be finished, it has been bundled in here as a bonus.
Congrats again to Cvoxulary with his first place entry, which will be the background map of Division 2.
