dm_richs_apt was the first hl2dm map I ever made. According to Wayback, it was up as early as Jan 2005.
HL2DM Rich's Apartment Best suited for 6-16 players. Filename: dm_richs_apt.bsp MODE D'EMPLOI: Unzip the file "dm_richs_apt.bsp" to your "half-life 2 deathmatch\hl2mp\maps" directory. FEATURES: - A 4 unit apartment building for great close-quarters combat. - A laundry building and an open street area for when you need to get some air. - Secret passages between all four apartments! Hidden murder holes! - Hidden locations that arent hard to find, but may give you an edge if you bother to use them. KNOWN ISSUES: - A few crashes, especially when reloading the map. This could just be a problem with me only running one map, but who knows. Your mileage may vary. - It doesn't seem to work on a pure Linux Dedicated Server :-( Let me know if you have a different experience - i had to use the Windows DS. - The buggy will not appear on dedicated servers without installing a vehicle patch, but this is not a problem with my map in particular. Is this really your apartment? Yeah, kinda. I haven't made a map since Doom 2, so when I felt inspired to learn 3d mapping, I decided to start by creating the inside of my apartment. When I made the map bigger, I recreated the design of my neighboring apts, and created an exterior. After playtesting this on my server for a while, I made a few adjustments, cleaned it up, and a few versions later I have a working deathmatch level thats lots of fun to play, and happens to bear a striking resemblance to a low-rent apartment complex in Iowa City, IA. I'd like to thank you for downloading my map - I hope you enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed making it. This is a fun map to explore, and a great deathmatch level. There's something here for everybody, you just have to search it out. Created by Rich McNinch http://www.feralbeast.com/ Dedicated server address: feralbeast.com
