Porto, Portugal (Walkthrough)

Description
Simple environment set in the Portuguese city of Porto.
No combat or gameplay for this one, just a immersive environment to walk around in.

After playing Half Life Alyx I fell in love with VR, the immersion factor is unparalleled with this technology!
The experience inspired me to give the new 'Source 2 Engine' a try and make a small VR environment to walk around in for myself.

The inspiration to make this scene came from the situation we find ourselves in 2020, due to the lockdown we couldn't go back to Portugal for our yearly vacation, making me pretty homesick and missing my family. So I decided to use the extra free time and tools at my disposal and bring "home" back to us instead, since VR can be so immersive why not recreate the kind of cozy cobblestone streets and colorful buildings I grew up around.

Even though this environment was made with a certain heartache, hopefully you can feel the sense of hope it tries to convey, this too shall pass and a hard situation is always a good opportunity to find good and growth.

Peace, and stay safe everybody!

I like your map so much!
after every steam VR session I spend some time in your Porto Map - mostly in the night scene.
It's so great to calm down after all that fighting... ;-)
my daughter is in porto right now. Is your map a 1:1 copy of a real district in porto?
or just fictitious?

thanks for this really wonderful map.

Nice place! It's like Alyx's vacation :steamthumbsup:. Would be great if Olga, Eli and other people be there too. I named Olga, the first woman Alyx found, in the laundry, 1st chapter.

@Anf there have been some ports and remakes, but no multiplayer support yet in HLA.
