Description
This is a very early demo map made by Valve way back in 2001 featuring the Borealis when they were developing Half-Life 2 prior to its beta getting leaked onto the internet in 2003. That will explain why the map clearly looks incomplete. The Borealis is also known as Hyperborea in certain beta maps.

This map retains several scripted sequences and enemies that will spawn. There is a point inside the Borealis that cuts to black and "ends", so you may want to avoid that.

I uploaded this map to the workshop because there were no versions for the workshop, and the map makes for a pretty decent posing/building map. It will be listed under the "Other" tab.

Credits to Valve for making the map.
Credits to Klow of the Combine Overwiki for the screenshot I used for the thumbnail.

And just one more thing, why do the ragdolls i spawn get cleaned up after a few time? I don't do anything, they just disappear

Never mind. It disables everything.

Requires cheats but you can type "fadein" on the console and that ought to solve your problem. It might not being the map triggers the "fadeout" but y'know. Worth a shot.

After you go into the scream room and your screen goes black, is there anyway to make it, uh, not go black? Because even when you respawn it still is. I tried using admin cleanup but it didn't do anything :/

I'm gonna be using this map in a video i'll be making.

It's about a Squadron of Arctic Combine Soldiers that search the area due to communications being cut off from their base where the spawnpoint is. Then they find out the soldiers in the base tried searching the Borealis shortly after it had teleported from stasis into the ice. Then when they went in there they discovered dozens of headcrabs and other aliens inside it, and they all died trying to retreat. Those who survived and made it back to the cabins were followed, and were killed by the aliens and zombies.
