[tab]Description:[/tab] A big open city building map

[tab]Requirements:[/tab] none

[tab]Download:[/tab] [/release]

Basically just a really big city that’s good for building contraptions and getting lost in. So big in fact that it has hit pretty much every source limit possible at one point or another. A bit blocky but it’s HUGE!


  • It’s pretty big
  • Custom soundscapes
  • Some of the doors work (teleport you to the roof)
  • A couple of indoor areas
  • AI nodes. NPCs will chase you through the streets!
  • Lots of places to build
  • Business, residential and warehouse themed districts
  • Garbage dump
  • A serial graffiti artist?
  • Mysterious invisible trains and cars and dogs
  • A weird open air sewage plant. Don’t ask me.
  • Plenty of dark alleys if you’re into that sort of thing
  • And much much more

This is actually sort of my first map, the one I learned Hammer on. It’s just been getting bigger and bigger over time as I learned mapping techniques. I think a version of bigcity was leaked a while back but I never released it officially due to some pretty terrible crashing troubles. Yesterday I decided on a whim to recompile it with all the latest tools and it seems to work much better now! I was so happy that I decided to finally release it here on facepunch instead of having it rot on my hard drive. This may be a mistake.

Some of the buildings are based off of buildings in huegcity, the map that inspired me in the first place. I still had to butcher a lot of nice things to get this map to compile so the lighting and cubemaps are very spotty in places.

Oh my god I’m cumming.

Whoa. Huge map. The buildings don’t look half-assed. You deserve a mapping king.

Nice map downloading now! Imagine mapping out the inside of every building.

Looks good, Downloading now. will not let me download it.
EDIT: its working now

The last 2 thumbnails will not open properly. Keeps timing out on me.

Man when I get home from school, I’m gonna get lost as shit and play hide and seek with my friends in this.

OH YES! I was wondering when the finished version would come out! I had the leak, and it was great itself…

Nevermind, wrong map- But good none the less!

Holy shit…

Going on my servers rotation NOW…

Did you steal any of this from gm_simplicity or huegcity?

i was about to say that this map was released ages ago,how do i know this isen’t a glory seeker looking for attention?

I said a lot of buildings are based off huegcity, I actually learned hammer originally by studying the vmf that came with that map. Much credit to iHax for huegcity.


Bloody nice map mate, but what does this mean? “- Mysterious invisible trains and cars and dogs” :uhoh:

Does this need Ep2 to run?

I have It but my brother doesn’t. I want to play on it with him. :excited:

The requirements say none.

Wow, you really outdid yourself for a first map. Keep up the good work.

Nevermind :uhoh:

wow awesome map dude! i love maps like huegcity
