This map is yet again one of the largest sandbox compilation maps i have created and therefore larger than both Ravenholm Town and City 17 Trainstation compilation maps combined. It is so large in fact that it fills out the entire horizontal plane of the Hammer Editor grid, with additional space used up by the 3D skybox. The map combines the Half-Life 2: Episode 2 maps from when you enter the outland inn until the very and of the game when you are in the helicoptor hangar, which means the following maps: ep2_outland_10, ep2_outland_10a, ep2_outland_11, ep2_outland_11a, ep2_outland_11b, ep2_outland_12, ep2_outland_12a.

As such, this map pushes the absolute limit of the Source Engine branch for Garry's Mod can handle, going so much beyond the brush limit that a large portion of all detail brushes have been made into models while almost at the edge of the object limit before compiling too - which was only possible because most of the map is displacement which has an extended limit compared to Half-Life 2. Because of this map's size and how it uses many of the extended limits raised from those found in Half-Life 2 and its episodes, it is NOT possible to run this map in any of these games as they will crash upon load with an engine error. All campaign related content has been removed from all of the maps so that it is possible to move around freely as it is a sandbox map while most of the dynamic world objects like the Strider Busters and its teleporter locations, the lifts to move players from one location to another, even the missle can be launched etc. has been preserved for the player to interact with and use themselves if they ever want to.

Any of these objects can of course also be enabled and disabled at will should something like a given area of the map wanted to be closed off or a certain feature made unable for use by players.Likewise with all my other combined maps, there are no requirements for this one other than Garry's Mod itself and it should work right out of the box without the need of mounting other Source Engine games. I had some problems with the look of the lighting like always, so if anyone got any feedback, bugs to fix, ideas for future stuff etc. or maybe you just like the map; feel free to write a short comment below and I will take a look at it, also make sure to check out my other content in case you are interested in more of my stuff :)

► Combined all White Forest Bunker + Strider Arena + Dog vs Strider Valley + Inn Village.
► All doors, lifts, gates - even the missle and strider busters - etc. are fully functional.
► Objects, like barriers, are cabable of blocking off areas.
► All usable features can be enabled and disabled.
► Removed all campaign content.
► Recreated world brushes.
► Recreated nodegraph (AI Nodes).
► Recreated lightmaps.
► Added new larger 3D skybox.
► LDR & HDR lighting.
► Color correction.
► Soundscapes.
► Optimisation.
► Cubemaps (reflections).

To enable or disable an object, either pick one you want to use from the list below or the input control map anove, which also allows you to see their locations, then go into the console by pressing the ~ key (default) and write 'sv_cheats 1' to activate server cheats. Now something like a silo blast door can be disabled from use for all players by using the following command 'ent_fire silo_door_lock_XX trigger' and likewise enabled 'ent_fire silo_door_unlock_XX trigger' where the XX should be replaced with a number of choice within the count range. Please note: you either has to play locally or be the server owner to active server cheats; to be able of enabling and disabling any of the objects found within the map.

If you want to make any changes to the map, you are allowed to do so as you like as long as you credit me for the creation of the map should you ever decide to release anything with what has been made available. You also cannot make any money off of the map as I am NOT responsible for the original design of the map, which goes to Valve Software whom made it as part of the game Half-Life 2: Episode 2 released in 2007.

Furthermore there is no need to decompile the map file found here on the workshop since all of its source files can be found for free on my website below. If you got any questions, please visit my discord channel in the social media links listed below and I will happily answer them whenever I am online,

Great map, but I found a issue. I enabled teleporters with commands, and then saved the game. When I opened the save, they are disabled again. Is there a fix for this, did I do something wrong, has anybody else seen this issue?

I absolutely love this map but please remove the strider! It for some reason instead of remaining a mere ragdoll comes to life and starts shooting. It causes IMMENSE lag. Please remove!
