SunLit HL2DM Map Pack #2
now available for download.
The maps for Half-Life 2 DeathMatch continue to come out at a rapid clip. It's very encouraging to see so many mappers working to make custom maps for a new game so quickly.
Many of these first new maps have been fatally flawed in some fundamental way. Some were beautiful, but unplayable. Some were poorly textured, but fun to play.
The reason we've come out with this new map pack so quickly after the first is that there are finally a few maps out there that both look good and play well. The ones I'm most interested in are dm_bounce_b2 (a completely re-textured version of the classic HLDM map), dm_rebar_b5 and dod_substorage. Pictures of these three maps are below.
There are a few other maps in there as well. You can see a complete list, along with thumbnails and expanded pics of each map on our HL2DM Map Pack #2
page. A new mapcycle will be posted on the HL2DM servers shortly.
