Story

A few days ago, you received a letter from the Civil Protection : you'll be relocated.
Today is the day. You're at the trainstation to move on City 17.
However, there's something wrong with this place...

Notes

This map is a bit special. At the beginning, I was just trying to get used again to Source.
But day after day, I thought it would be cool to turn this "test" map into a playable map.

Since the map is quite compact, I started to think about making riddles.
Moreover, I was playing the nice mod Alchemilla, which is mainly about puzzles. I loved it, so I thought it would be nice to make a map based on puzzles too...

Also, don't forget to look everywhere and to take your time. You can easily miss something important if you go too fast...

  • This map takes place in a trainstation. My main inspiration was my hometown trainstation...
  • It was really fun to make all the riddles. I loved how I had to imagine and make them work...
  • It should not be really hard. Nevertheless, if it's too difficult for too much players, I might write a walkthrough...
  • Have fun !!

  • Tell me what you think about my map... Any constructive feedback is apprecied !!
  • Sorry for my English, I'm French...
  • Map achieved the 27th August 2017...

    Damn, the screenshots look beautiful! I'll try to get it working in GMod, cause it really looks interesting.
    EDIT: The map has an amazing atmosphere! However, I got stuck at the elevator shafts because I didn't know that the pipes were climbable. Also the water there somehow messed up the game, I was unable to jump, sprint or attack, I am not sure if it's a GMod only bug. Nevertheless it was a great experience, I am always open to these kind of maps!

    I just played this lovely and well-made level. Impressive work indeed! You did a complex and yet so simple to solve if you search and walk around for clues and pieces of your next puzzle. I got stuck trying to search for the code as well but I managed to proceed and complete the map pretty well. 

    The beginning was amazing. The soundscapes you selected to be playing while walking on each transition of another area are awesome. No doubts you put a lot of your creativity into those dynamic shadows lighting with good old fashion gates shadow (lighting blocks) upper apartments. and well placed grids on the basement and the upper apartments.

    For a moment, I thought it was going to scare me with some kind of headcrab jumping on my head or someone screaming/talking on my back when I walked into those apartments, really scary atmosphere you created there! I did not understand why that lamp felt from the ceiling - thought I was going to use it somewhere else but in the end, was just small details.

    Your puzzles are outstanding and please to complete. You really must walk with caution and search on every corner of each room to find the next piece or hint of the puzzle. Moving those trains to fit the perfect path to walk through was the best thing I could achieve there! Those puzzles didn't feel any repetitive or boring to do in any time. 

    Only one issue I would like to adjust for better gameplay is the part to search for the code. I spent 10 minutes walking around on those trains/station thinking the answer, prop or something would be there. I know there was a keypad before walking into the vents but I never thought I needed to get inside there first to still control those trains to align perfectly - because well, I didn't know what was the purpose of that room at the first place. 

    Maybe you could inform the player where he should go first or check for another part of the puzzle before making him believe he's good to go out of the first level of the map (basement, control room and apartments)

    The rest, it's all more than good! You did a good job there. Thank you for creating this!

    Cheers.

    Judging by the screenshots alone it looks like the epitome of perfection. Good use of dramatic lighting.
    Always heart warming to see people with skill return to this engine.
