Tropical Fever 2

A Map for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Virtual holidays anyone?

Hola fellow tropicans! After four years of my first release of this map, after five other intermediate never-released versions, after practically rebuilding nearly everything in the map, here it is! Tropical Fever 2 packs many changes designed to make this map more appealing and functional. Features: - HDR - Color Correction - Soundscapes - Enterable areas - Drivable vehicles (HL2 ones only) - Lots of custom content - Maximum possible xy dimensions - Many Optimization features Improvements over the previous release: (This is not a complete list. These are just the major changes) - Completely remade the "Puerto Sol" area (port town) - Retextured all natural formations - Reworked nearly all displacements - Removed custom vehicles (compatibility) - Removed other custom content (Performance) - Added other content more useful and lighter to the engine - Many bugfixes - Many interactive additions (usable sinks etc.) - A few Easter eggs. Usage Notes While this map is being posted under HL2 EP2, it is probably best used in Gmod10. Just install it in Ep2 and load it through Gmod in order to take advantage of the open areas for some helicopter fun. Machinima makers might also find this map useful. The main reason I'm posting this map is for completeness's sake. I reworked it so much over the years, trying things, adding stuff, removing stuff, fixing issues, that I felt like it had to be posted sooner or later. So here it is. Also, while this is a single-player map, it doesn't really have an objective, it is more like a sandbox thing if you know what I mean. Anyway... have fun and remember to always vote for El Prez!

    Hello, Do you mind if I use some of the content from this map (Some of the models, like the speedboat/yacht, the flags and the palm trees) for a GMod map i'm making?Since HL2/GMod doesn't really have any models that fit in those categories, I find the models in this map fit for usage, but I do not have permission to use them, so I'll wait until you reply to this before I use any of your models.
    Late reply but yes, go on. Just make sure to mention the original creators of the content you are using. It would be nice to state the modifications you've made if any. Have a good one!

    Was it on ep2 or Gmod10?

    If in ep2, try setting the launch options to:
    "-override_vpk"

    If in Gmod10, try sv_pure 0
