Bless his soul.
Nothing so far can compare to the quality of Minerva:Metastasis, in my opinion.
How many mods are broken with the May 2010 update? Is HL2 itself even playable?
HL2 is playable, I don#t think Valve would leave their own game broken since 2010 :P
As for mods, I have not found any in my collection that are broken, tho I've heard a few were affected :(
What Daz Said
some HL 1 mods have issues though, since they came out before steam etc.
HL2 Is Fine
not sure about mods, what did this update do?
Not Sure Exactly
But I think some code changes broke maps and mods built using an earlier version of the hl2 engine, can't be any more specific than that though I'm afraid.
Another well made Ep1 mod but again feels too sparse and lacks the engagement that HL2 at least appears to offer what with the numerous setpieces and scripted events.
This is more like it, very high quality stuff and long enough to get immersed.
Just Played Through Siren
Very creepy atmosphere, top marks in this department. Limited health and ammo add to the tension but the ending is just...unfinished. Shame, because this is a quality custom mappack otherwise.
most broken mods can be fixed, see here for details:
extremely high quality mod thats quite satisfying but needed to be better playtested since its not exactly easy to work out what to do next.
Lack of playtesting (or listening to playtesters) is the downfall of many otherwise great mods, or games.
Eye Of The Storm
This is one the best I've played so far, very professionally built, good combat, no bugs and nice setpieces.
another good one although goes overboard with light bloom in some areas and also lacks a proper ending. I believe the author is working on a second map that will link to this when it's done.
Thanks For Posting These
i know i'll be doing a hl2 marathon later during the winter. :)
have another 9 lined up to play :)
Like Whoopservatory, way too short.
But what's here is borderline amazing! The whole map's essentially a setpiece and a very memorable one.
If you're comparing it to Whoopservatory, then I've got to check out Outpost 16 asap. :p
Have you checked out Research & Development yet btw?
i've played that one, and if you haven't i'll just chime in and say you should play it too. ^_^
nightmare house 2 is good if you like horror mods
I was comparing it length wise, both Whoopservatory and Outpost 16 were too short IMHO.
Whoopersvatory is a little more polished but Outpost 16 has a killer setpiece.
R&D is in the remaining 8, as is Minerva Metastasis.
is a great mod.
R&D has a very good design and interesting puzzles, but I got stuck somewhere near the end I think and gave up.
<Avenger_> half life 2 is neat
<Avenger_> im playing it now
