This map was created as an entry for the TWHL Competition, Half-Life 25th Anniversary: Vanilla HLDM 2024
CoolDown is a vertically focused map with one central, multi-levelled arena and several self-contained arenas linking across the map. The map focuses on coolant as an environmental hazard, rewarding risky jumps, vertical combat, and offering multiple routes through each area.

It is a large map, best suited for games with 8-16 players. It's not suited for 1v1 as you will spend most of the match searching for one another.

To add some variety, there are a few traps that players can use. There are also a few easter eggs and hidden secrets to find!

Special thanks to my pals Mana, Joe and Mike as well as TWHL community members for playtesting and feedback!

I already gave you my feedback on discord,but really great work, this genuinely could have been an official release map. An insane number of ideas and details, I'm jealous ...

Quite a great map right here, with so much detail crammed in it, that sometimes it feels surreal it was done during the compo. A lot of interesting placements, layouts, fun traps and secrets.
The sole cons I have, that stops this from being full perfect, is that it's quite a big map, so if the server isn't at least half full, you will have some trouble finding some players.
In my opinion, the coolant instantly killing you ( or hurting you very fast on the small puddles / waterfalls ), kinda makes it at times a punishing element if you miss a jump / get pushed, but its minor in my view.
