A remake of the original maps for Scientist Hunt!

The Scientist Hunt HD Map Pack started back in the Summer of 2011. The goal was to make HD versions of the stock Scientist Hunt maps that are in a similar style to Hondo's "HDSciHouse". It started small and grew into something much larger. Before we knew it, we were making not only remakes, but new creations of our own. This pack contains many maps with their own textures/sounds/models. We released an update back in 2013, but over time we found quite a few issues and learned a lot of new tricks.

Fast-forward several years later, we're now older and don't have as much time anymore, but that didn't stop us from setting some aside to release one last update. However, in order to make the 10th anniversary of the original release, we decided to put out the pack in it's current unfinished state. While we intend 1.2 to be our last true update to this pack, we will come back and keep releasing beta builds of this till we are satisfied, so be sure to check back every now and then!

Thanks for reading, and if you've played the previous releases, we hope you've enjoyed the journey.

Here's to another 10 years...

Old Description:

Scientist Hunt HD Map Pack was thought of in May, and started in July. The goal was to make HD versions of the stock Scientist Hunt maps that are in a similar style to Hondo's "HDSciHouse". It started small and grew into something much larger. Before we knew it, we were making not only remakes, but new creations of our own. This pack contains 14 maps with their own textures/sounds/models. This has taken about five months and we hope you enjoy the pack. Also look out for Dopefish, he seems to have swam his way into our maps...
