For over a decade, LambdaGeneration has been all about showcasing the best mods and community content from the Half-Life community. Now, it’s time to make some of our own - alongside and partnered with one of the great homes of Half-Life modding, ModDB. Introducing - LambdaBuilds!
With both ModDB and LambdaGeneration in partnership, the fourth of our competitions kicked off in February. After a month of mapping, judging, and scoring, the results of LambdaBuilds' fourth competition, Tundra, are now available!
Entrants had four weeks to design an entry channelling winter chill and bringing in an emphasis on cold environments. Points were awarded based on the visual fidelity, gameplay mechanics, and adherence to the theming, with entries guest judged by Breadman from Entropy Zero 2!
Military Conflict: Vietnam brings an intense, fast-paced and fun first-person shooter experience. Set in the heat of the Vietnam War, side with Viet Cong guerrillas or U.S. Army soldiers in fierce close quarters combat. There is no hesitation. Kill or be killed!
We had a total of twelve eligible entries which were a chilling addition to the rare genre of cold/arctic maps in Half-Life 2 mods! The winners are as follows:
Up in the Arctic, an unknown hero must guide the boats to Arbeit 2 by switching on the old Heiberg lighthouse. He will have to rely on his jalopy to repel Combine under conditions of -23 degrees Celsius.
We've also chosen to recognise an honourable entry for placing so closely to third and being a really spectacular entry:
You are sent to join a secret research group in the north in search of the
mythical Hyperborea, but you soon realize that things have gone wrong.
Congratulations to the winners! LambdaGeneration will be in touch to distribute your prizes and all winners will receive a role personalised to their placement on both the Discord and Website!
The remaining eight entrants are as follows:
Thanks to all who entered and we hope you enjoy playing the competition as much as we enjoyed creating it! Stay tuned on this page for more competitions in the future!
