[Edit] Qwertyus has brought to my attention that a bug with the engine could cause problems for some people due to the dead scientist model I had used. He was nice enough to give me a fixed version which shouldn't cause it, so the file has been edited to include it.
For some reason TWHL doesn't seem to want me to update the download, so the fixed version can be downloaded here:

This is my entry for Captain Terror's Christmas minicompo.

Seeing as he was willing to extend the deadline a little, I thought I had better make some nicer surroundings rather than just having it in a bare room. Whether that should count towards the tree decorations is up to CT to decide.

I also made use of some mapping techniques in this map that I hadn't really used before, which is nice.

A very believable Xmas-themed map, AND a tribute to one of my favorite action movies of all time!

Imgur Spoiler Gallery

The map is very-realistically styled and detailed, and the overall xmas ambience is nice. The falling snow looked more pretty/natural than I've seen in Half-Life, well done!

Little details like the blinking lights and those custom models were a great touch. The main audio and the way it's faded, completes the theme perfectly. Hopefully we get some more entries! Prizes will be sent out day after New Years, so stay tuned!

BTW, Great job rebuilding the tree! It's cleaner, looks better in-game, and on the grid, well done :P

Okay, this is vastly nicer than what I was going to make anyway >.<

Hooray!

I would probably go for Steam games. I will have to find one that I might want though.
