This was my first Source HL2 SP-project, and although i did release it 9 years ago i never placed it on Moddb. Because it was my first atempt with the Hammer editor it doesn't have the quality from my later Source SP-mods. Still, it was good enough it seems for Splash Damage to contact me and offer me a job as level designer on there next project what later turned out to be Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars. I had to turn there offer down due to personal issues, i still regret this in a huge way till this day!!
This 4 sp-maps mappack is 13 years old and over time many things have changed due to Steam updates. Which makes that old mods and mappacks don't work anymore. The old readme.txt file state wrong install instructions. That is why i add this new readme.txt called New Install Instructions. In it you find all info and advice needed to get this sp-mappack to work.

* Installation *
when you unzip the .rar file it can happen that it unzips to a folder called; LeonHL2_1.
When this is the case then open this LeonHL2_1 folder and copy everything that is inside it
and paste it to;
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2\maps
(or any other driver were you have steam/HL2 installed).
It is best to always have SOURCE SDK 2013 SP installed these days, and set it to "upcoming".
Because many old mods may otherwise not work anymore due to a scale of Steam updates over the
years. You can find info on how to do so on google when you google with
Source SDK 2013 SP and set to "upcoming".

You get extracted in the sewers outside a big city that is controlled by the combines, although there are certain parts of the city that are filled with headcrabs and other creatures. You have to find and fight your way trough the sewer, over the railroad track in to the city. Once you're in the city your objective is to find the power plant and destroy it. It sounds easy but you will have to fight for your life before you get there.
