Hello everone,
Rp_City17_District47 is our first attempt at a released map. This beauty has been in the works for over a year now as we had many problems and
had to be postponed due to us all being in college at the time and now that we have finished we decided to finish the map and wola here we are.

**Requires Half-Life 2: Episode One and Half-Life 2: Episode Two mounted to Garry’s Mod! **

Wow, I didn’t expect much from the name but this is really nice. Love the atmosphere & great usage of colors too, makes the map look very unified. Useful features as well, obviously lots more effort went into this than most new HL2RP maps.

Thank you for the kind words. We are always looking for feedback to improve the map.

Half-Life 2 RP Version

-Added some extra props around the map.
-Added an extra route the the vent escape in the rebel base which leads into one of the apartments basement.

Gmod could always use new maps especially ones of quality.
