Damn, that looks great. Did you use all default hl textures for it?

Yep! With a little historical knowledge and imagination, the Half-Life.wad can be stretched to fit just about any scenario. I'm doing it this way in the spirit of the mods I played as a kid. I remember one mod I played used the "Tentacle" texture as a bed comforter - and one where the author used textures from the xeno.wad for food at a buffet table. I'm going to eventually have to make custom textures for things like ads, paintings, posters, etc. though.

Yep, the original Half-Life .wads have ...limitlesss... potential... :) You could use them in any scenario. The only boundary, as you said, is someone's imagination. The only case which I also did my own textures was for signs. As for the manor, damn that thing looks awesome!

Description

Abandoned for a year - the former home of that late, eminent citizen who owned the stoveworks. Gas is still supplied to the home, though it has not been kept up in quite some time due to unbeknownst circumstances - though some wild rumors fly about town as to the truth behind the owner's death and why it has not been peopled or touched for a year's time.
