Thanks to our outstanding community, Battle Grounds: Source, BG2, has started to come together. Early versions of BG2 can be found in the forums, here. BG2 or BG:S at the moment is a simple port of BG1 (for Half-Life 1) with the exception of maps. Special thanks to Tjoppen for doing most of the code work on BG2.

The mapping community has just started to release new maps for BG2 and we look forward to more maps in the future. Pr3dator has started working on his own BG2 maps. His first creation for BG2 is bg_koth. This king of the hill map is complete with a 3d skybox, entrenchments, and fully functional capture areas. The map's open atmosphere sets a standard for Battle Grounds: Source. Pr3dator's next project is porting the historical bg_lexington to BG2. See some snapshots of the current bg_koth build in action, below.
