full star full star full star full star half star Download (Hosted Externally)

Please do not criticize me for posting the mod again after the comp but filefront is threating to delete it if downloads don't pick up so hopefully a few extra people will download it and keep to alive. Anyway, this is the map I submitted for the Comp Water and came first. I actually never got any feedback from it (except from Dave who sent a PM last week) so please rate and comment. Quick storyline, you are on an old submarine refueling station now used as a science lab studying sharks and how their cells reproduce so quickly. But then the storm hits! The story rolls out as you play on the various computer screens. Enjoy! (if you haven't already)


Sorry about the download, I didn't realize it linked to the txt file download, I just copied the link of the comp page. Now it links directly to filefront but you still have to click the download button there 'cause filefront keep sessions and a direct link won't create a session allowing you to download.

Thanks for the new download link =) updated...

I really liked this - when I first saw it on the compo page my monitors brightness was turned down and the screeny looked real bad - but I dl'd it anyway. Pretty damn awesome - and funnily enough I replayed it last week. It was so in keeping with "The Deep Blue Sea" which I gather was kinda intentional! :)

The only thing negative I can think of ATM was the re-modeled <can't remember name> fish was really buggy and kept getting stuck. It was really annoying and easy to kill. Also, it took me ages to get through the gap when falling down the lift-shaft - although maybe I just sucked! ;)

Overall though - extremely clean. Great length and quality map for such a short time period. I loved it when the glass in the window broke and the water ran into the next room leveling it up - it looked really effective - its more fun faking these kind of effects than getting the HL2 engine to do it automatically.

A well deserved 1st place!

Why not just link to the download page? It doesn't have to be a direct download link, you know. And I gotta say, it's pretty friggin' annoying downloading a text file just to get a link.

However, you should just use oxihosting instead of FileFront. They'll never delete your files.

This is a great map with a good story, good gameplay, and most surprisingly, good length.

PS: Those sharks have really sharp teeth. Damn sharks.

Those fish were actually just leeches with a different model and yes, i put them intentionally in annoying places like the cafeteria because the tables and bright light hide them and they sneek up and bite your ass! Also, this mod was loosely based on the movie "Deep Blue Sea". @srry FileFront send you an email saying you have four days to 'save' your file. They put it in a queue and you have four days to login and check a box to say don't delete so I don't mind, I put it here because Dave said he only just played it so I assumed many people haven't checked the comp page and put it in the vault to get some more downloads on it and feedback.

...oh btw, the Mini-Sub ruled. Forgot that. Also, the lighting for that room was great.

...Although, the computer screens were really annoying as there was too much text and it appeared too slowly, although its a neat idea maybe try and cut it down a bit?

Really good, I enjoyed playing this.

A good story, well made, and with many nice touches.

@ Zeeba-G... are you sure your HL is fully updated? Sometimes if the .dll used for Mod is newer than your version the game crashes.

Good. The brushwork isn't bad also my only complaint is about the skybox you used, It looks really horrible and don't give the endless water look. Whatever this is a very good and fun to play, good storyline and stuff. I recomend it.

My HL is on the newest update and also encounters a crash at loadup.
