These are selected highlights from personal mapping projects I have done for various games.  I have been making maps and mods since 1997.

Half-Life 2: Episode Two

  • Beacon (CoastVille contest entry)

    A rebel camp along the coast has been wiped out, and the culprits are nowhere to be found.  Perhaps there is more to the nearby lighthouse than there seems.  This map was made in just 5 days and finished 1st place.

  • Heron (BridgeVille bonus entry)

    Find a way to cross a collapsed bridge.
  •  Precinct 17

  • MAMH (LiberationVille contest entry) [Playthrough Video from Bolloxed]

    Rebels have received information that a Hunter has turned against the Combine.  Freeman must rescue this Hunter and bring it back to White Forest before the Combine euthanize it.  Fight alongside a friendly Hunter in this unique and inventive map that was a 2nd place finisher among 15 entries.
  • High Wire (ChasmVille contest entry and winner) [Playthrough Video from Bolloxed]

    Freeman must traverse a dangerous chasm using a tram near a lodge held by Combine forces in order to reach Alyx. Made in just one week, High Wire won top honors in a competition with 13 maps.

  • Truss (VerticalVille2 contest entry and winner)

    Freeman has to find a way to lower a drawbridge so a train can continue on to White Forest.  The scenic bridge was made from several custom props.

  • Camp 43 (Station60Ville contest entry and winner) [Playthrough Video from Bolloxed]

    Freeman volunteers to investigate a mysterious and disturbing distress call emanating from Camp 43, which has broadcast on a never-ending loop to all rebel stations around White Forest.
  • Avenue Odessa [Playthrough Video from Bolloxed]

    Freeman reunites with the illustrious Colonel Odessa Cubbage as the two work to escape City 17 before the Citadel explodes.  Originally built for the CityStreetsVille competition, the mod edition of Avenue Odessa adds a thrilling second level aboard a moving train.  Features extensive choreography and custom voice work.

  • Miter (HorrorVille contest entry)

    Trapped inside Nova Prospekt, a weaponless Freeman has to escape from his cellblock.  Fortunately, fellow prisoners have devised “Operation: Miter,” a whirling blade of death, but they were killed by Stalkers in the process of trying to build the device.  It’s up to Freeman to finish what they started and chop, slice, and hack his way out of the cellblock.
  • Cannon Beach (CombinationVille bonus map) [Playthrough Video from Custom Gamer]

    Captain Meriweather asks for assistance in disabling a Combine Autogun that is preventing rebel ships from crossing a vital harbor.  This was a featured bonus map in a competition where entrants could only use two weapons and two enemy types.  Cannon Beach features friendly Antlions.  Use and sacrifice your Antlion friends to infiltrate the Combine base and deal with a Strider.

Black Mesa 

In development for over 10 years, Black Mesa was envisioned as a complete remake of Half-Life 1 in the Source Engine.  Packed with new content and custom assets, it uses the same Hammer Editor as other Source games.  However, unlike the official Half-Life games, Black Mesa game has a built-in Steam Workshop.

  • Bravado [Playthrough Video from Custom Gamer]

    While attempting to escape Black Mesa, Freeman’s tram is halted by a military lockdown.  In order to get the tram running again, he will have to explore an office facility chiseled into the side of a canyon wall.  One of the first single player offerings for Black Mesa, and among the Most Subscribed in its Steam Workshop, Bravado has over 5,000 subscribers and a 98% approval rating with almost 300 votes. (Optional: VMF File).

  • Oasis

    En route to the Lambda Core, Freeman explores the Oasis Complex, a recreational facility at Black Mesa, and finds himself forming an alliance with an unlikely individual.


The indie game Overload is a spiritual successor to the classic six-degrees-of-freedom FPS, Descent produced by much of the same team.  The level editor came out shortly after the game's release.  Remarkably, while the game itself runs on Unity, the actual level construction is based upon the same cube-based techniques as the original games.

  • Titan Geothermal Plant

    Titan Geothermal, constructed by Juno Offworld, produces energy for nearby mining operations compromised by robot insurgents.  Destroying this facility will sever their energy supply.

  • Titan Cryostasis Facility

    To optimize response time between the Asteroid Belt and Saturn, Juno Offworld arranged for a contingency staff station in a long-term Cryo-Shelter on Titan, to be activated in the event of an emergency.  CEO Kantor disabled this failsafe and turned the Operators rogue.  The crew is in grave danger.  Recover their Cryopods and destroy the facility.

  • Fuego

    A map for Challenge Mode.  Deep beneath the surface of Skoll, endless caverns transport superheated, volatile gases from the geothermal plants of Cronus Frontier, congregating in Junction-F for expulsion to the surface.  The miners know it by a different name: "Fuego."  Don't let the pressure get to you, pilot. [Gameplay Video]

DOOM SnapMap 

SnapMap is the built-in level editor for DOOM (2016) which produces cross-platform maps for PC and console.  While you are limited in your ability to construct your own level geometry, the scripting component is surprisingly robust, offering plenty of gameplay and storytelling options.

FreeSpace 2
