Ha Long Treasures - A Mod for Half-Life 2.

submission for Treasure Hunter Contest

I gained inspiration from many area's of film, video games and real life locations, I fixed on setting the level in 'Ha Long Bay'. Early pictures from Dear Esther gave me some ideas, Tomb Raider also influenced the level a lot. In one of my favourite childhood movies 'The Goonies' there is a pirate ship hidden in a large cave, I wanted to create a similar scene. As the outdoor location had been an Asian one, I chose to use an Asian looking ship. The ship (along with its cargo) is the real 'Treasure' of the map. Lighting the level was a difficult but fun challenge. I used a combination of mystical flaming bowls and magical ambient light, walking around in the dark is no fun. I have enjoyed creating this map, and I hope you enjoy playing.
