Alyx's City 17 map by ppitm Alyx's City 17 map by ppitm
Apparently Alyx Vance found this map somewhere in an old military base, and started using it to keep all her notes. The Citadel is present and the Combine Apron wall is marked in black. She has made a note of Civil Protection checkpoints and bases (CP) and citizen housing centers (cit.), as well as Resistance bases marked by yellow lambdas. The Underground Railroad route is drawn in yellow, and there is even a to-do list at the bottom of the map.

What do the Cyrillic Simbols mean? Did you give City 17 and Ravenholm a "real" name? That'd be cool.

What is this from, exactly? Is this just something you made up or is it inspired by something?

I mean, I know it's from Half-Life 2, but I mean this concept.

The concept? It's just my attempt at turning the idea of City 17 into a real place, existing in a geographical sense, as opposed to a series of small game levels, settings elements and motiffs.

It's a map of the city as it appeared to Soviet military cartographers, then annotated by Alyx when she found it in some crumbling government building somewhere.

I figure at some point the Combine have to grow food. They can't rely entirely on synthetic rations.

Because that's just screenshots of the levels strung together, and this is the entire city as I imagine it.

BlackDog's excellent map isn't really any more 'accurate' than mine, though, because he had to rotate things to prevent them from running into each other, and they still don't line up. Each level exists in a void, with no true geographic relation to the other locations. It's a question of fabricating something that makes sense.

Looks like the image quality took a bit of a hit this time. You may have to squint to read some of the smaller labels.
