meaning \'Earthquake Test Centre\', but that kind means nothing now... Ahhh... Look, just go play it, OK? -- BTW, there are a lot of things I dont like about this release. I only released it since I REALLY WANT to get a decent SP map out. I\'ve been mapping for some time, and had no major releases, this is the first. And for those of you wondering, \"Why not make this better if you dont like it?\", the answer is because I want to get it out of the way so I can work on what could be ETC2. Look out ;) Also, fat barney is in this, but it ain\'t great. I wanted to replace the normal barney, so a fat model would walk around instead... unfortunately, MilkShape3D\'s decompile feature still has a few bugs in it (or mabe limitations it cant avoid), which means data from the original .qcs are missing. To get my fat barney to walk would require me getting the ProSDK... Anyway, play ETC, if you like it, that\'s great! My job is done! If you don\'t... then err... look out for a sequel which will be better ;) [/quote]

relationship at best, and Gordon\'s hero status following the containment of Xen only served to inflame Dr. Newell\'s hatred and jealousy of him. The timeframe for Todesangst is set shortly after Gordon Freeman\'s successful return from Xen. The episode opens with a cut-scene of Mr. Blackstone (a.k.a. the G-man) arriving at Dr. Newell\'s office. As we soon discover, Dr. Newell has had Mr. Blackstone in his control all along, and has his own intentions for the exploitation of Xen\'s biological uniqueness. . . Its up to you, Gordon, to stop your evil colleague from unleashing the horror of Xen on humanity. . . if its not too late. . . [/quote]
parallel universe, Barney and the Man in Blue have picked you up in Black Mesa\'s new time machine, and you\'re returning to Black Mesa for some overdue R&R. But your journey is about to be interrupted... (Note: The pack includes a new hazard course. Playing it before the main mission isn\'t absolutely necessary but may give you some useful hints.)

turning down the Gman\'s offer of employment, you managed to escape using an intergalactic teleporter that returned you to Earth. Hiding out within the inner city, you soon believe that the Gman is no longer interested in you. A calm peaceful feeling begins to replace the fear, terror and horror that overwhelmed you during your nightmare with Black Mesa, the soldiers and the Xen species. Feeling confident that it is now safe to return home to your wife and look up some old friends, you make your way back to the old neighbourhood. Your apartment looks different somehow. There are no signs of your wife or anything that would belong to a woman. You also notice other strange things like items are missing, neighbours no longer live in the building. You turn on the television to watch some news and many of the anchors are new, but what really gives you that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach is the content of the news. Facts are no longer true, companies and products don\'t exist, people have vanished and been replaced by someone else.. Many things have changed. Your agitation brings you to telephone your mother-in-law in order to talk to your wife, who must have moved out for some reason. Your mother-in-law informs you that she has never heard of you and insists that they never had a daughter. You try to call up on some old buddies but can only find two and they insist that they don\'t know the other missing friends at all. You are sitting in your chair, in a state of shock, staring at the television, when there is a knock at the door. Two men dressed in black greet you. They are ITR agents. Employees of a newly formed organization called Intergalactic Time Reassurance, Inc.. They explain that they are time-space enforcement officers and have been sent to offer you a job as an ITR agent. Time-space...hmm... maybe I can get to the bottom of what the hell has happened to my wife and friends etc. You decide to accept the job and complete a special forces training program. You are now an ITR enforcement officer and have been teleported to a secret base of operations. It\'s monday morning 9:30 am and you are running late as usual.....[/quote]
Freeman heading into the teleporter. Where it took him was not revealed. ETC 2 continues from this point. So, where did Freeman go? The military weren\'t there just to clean out the creatures. They weren\'t there to remove Freeman. They weren\'t there to silence the innocents. The military were there in need of information. \'Xen\' was news to them. They had to know more. The teleportation unit they uncovered was merely an accessory allowing them to gain access to the facility. And Gordon went the wrong way. But Gordon was not prepared for this. You couldn\'t be. The military were far from stupid. If these teleporters work one way, they work the other too. Gordon led himself back into the hands of the military. So, the military have found their way to Xen - the creatures of Xen aren\'t keen on that. They have to stop the invasion - and you\'re stuck right in the middle. ETC 2 begins days after Gordon was caught. The creatures of a small suburb of Xen are prepared to invade. And so they begin. It\'s just as well the military are as willing to airstrike wherever the creatures end up... [/quote]
skill and cunning by escaping the Black Mesa complex alive, you have been called on by a shadowy organisation - the Alien Counter-Insurgency Bureau - to help protect mankind from the threat posed by Xen. Tonight, the A.C.I.B. has need of your special abilities to counter a new threat to civilisation. You have been given a rendez-vous in the warehouse district of the city to receive your mission briefing. REQUIREMENTS : This pack is not optimised for older machines. It runs OK at 1024x768 under OpenGL on a PII 400 with a 16Mb TNT card which is roughly equivalent to the slowest machine you can currently buy. WALKTHROUGH : A complete walkthrough of this map pack is available at www.cyber-rat.com. Please only use it if you get completely stuck. CHEATS : It should not be necessary to use cheats to get to where you want to go. If you use tricks such as \'noclip\' to get somewhere the chances are that you will disrupt the flow of the level by bypassing triggers or other important things. Once this is done the level may not function correctly at all. Refer to the walkthrough if you need help. EDITING INFORMATION : If you have specific editing questions regarding these levels feel free to write to me. I may create editing tutorials to describe certain techniques if I get enough requests, although most aspects of HL editing are well covered in existing sites. I particularly recommend the Handy Vandal\'s Alamanac which lists almost every HL editing tutorial on the web - [http://www.karljones.com/halflife/almanac.asp]. KNOWN BUGS: If you find a major problem please write to me with details. [/quote]
and cause the second re-birth of Nihilanth, and all Xen would be drained of their lifeblood, their knowledge. And that, in this time, the Xen race would be oppressed by the armies from the far side of the portal. It was also written that once the portal was opened, a human known as \"Freeman\" would cross the galactic transverse into Xen space, and set free the three sacred Telnorps, the guardians of the gate who had been captured from the ancient enemies of the Xen, the Zan from the Theldran galaxy. And so it was that the prophecy came to pass, and the weakened Xen were powerless to resist an onslaught from the Zan. In the dawn of the first Ashaan of Xen time, the elders of the high council sanctioned an uneasy alliance with the perpetrators of the impending disaster, the Human race, in order to restore the sacred telnorps, and thus sealing the Zan gateway….. forever. The ambassador of the alien Investigation unit on earth was called upon to \"redeem\" the situation by employing the use of the very individual who had inadvertently caused the situation.... [/quote]

[quote]PREFACE: (Who are you and where do you come from) You are Adam from the planet Esidarap. This planet is prestine with no violence, weapons or pollution of any kind. The members of this society have never been exposed to the evil ways of other primitive planets and Esidarap's world council want to keep it that way. The people of Esidarap are born with genetics that are pre-programmed toward the persuit of peace, love, liberty and freedom. There are no governments, police, religions or military. They do not have or use; money, status symbols or class. In fact, everything on Esidarap is FREE. Esidaraps are geneticly motivated to be the best they can be and spend their time in the persuit of arts, science and humanity. People only do what they love to do and everyone is happy on Esidarap. They believe that everyone is created equal and that society is only as strong as it's weakest link. They take pride in insuring that there are no weak links for anyone! This may at first seem ridiculous and non-functional, but it is working and working well. Only those who love growing things become farmers, only those who truely love healing become doctors etc. As, everything on Esidarap is free and there is no money, all motivations toward profit has been eliminated. There is no one earning $60 million a year while others only earn $10k a year. There is no such thing as the "haves and have nots". Everyone lives in the same style of shelters. Diamonds are used for drill tool bits and are not worn by people. To prevent cliche's or isolated groups of people from forming, Esidaraps use only one language. Creating new words not known by others is frowned upon. No one owns anything but rather, everyone owns everything. They believe that acts of kindness and love are to be shared and expressed with all people. Anything that has the potential of separating people or causing dis-harmony in any way, has long since been abandoned a thousand years ago. There are no unpleasant functions or "jobs" on Esidarap. There are no garbagemen, waitress, butlers, servants, taxi or chauffers. There isn't any cars on Esidarap. Any activity that could produce waste has either been eliminated or a new method has been devised that does not produce pollution or waste products. There is no need for marketing, so products are not packaged. Need a factory built? Those who love to build things will help you, free. Don't want to work? Only want to play tennis all day? No problem, people will come and watch you do what you love to do. Do you only want to sit and play computer games all day? Great, beta-testers are needed all the time. Get the picture? As Adam, you are motivated to protect your society and Esidarap from all outside influences and invaders. [/quote]
We learn that behind all of the cloak-and-dagger Xen experiments lies a multinational group of anarchists who call themselves the Schwarzgeist.[/quote]

puzzle solving. If you are looking for a long and challenging SP map, this might not be what you want. I still think it's worth a look. There is a bug I am aware of, which you will only encounter if you backtrack in a certain place. I might fix it in the future. Right now I don't consider it worth another compile. Custom textures by me, so I apologize if some of them look cartoony. The whole build time (including creating the WAD file) was somewhere between 20-15 days. Enjoy the map.[/quote] See readme below for additional information.
