Aliens vs Predator 2 single player custom map titled "Outpost29SE_SP_Predator" aka "Outpost 29 Special Edition - Special Edition - Single Player - Predator".
Map author: HHO.
"Outpost29SE_SP_Predator" which I will refer to as Outpost29SE for short here, is a remake of the multiplayer map "DM_outpost29SE". To give some backstory to Outpost29SE's development, it started when I was putting together "Happy Hunting Map Pack." I was testing various multiplayer maps in single player mode and I found that the map DM_outpost29SE worked ok, but needed a few things fixed like spawn points for a fully working single player experience. So I contacted HHO, the author of the map, and asked him to make small adjustments to the map for a single player version.
Instead of making the small adjustments, HHO completely revamped the map and made both a marine and predator version for it. My playthrough is of the predator version. The map layout is basically the same, but HHO made the map take place at night, changed the enemy spawns, added mission objectives and added new props all over the map. The mission objectives can be slightly confusing, but here they are. The goal for the player is to get into the APC, activate the turrets at the camp, return to the camp, enter the hive, defeat the queen, return to the APC, return to the camp and then evacuate in the helicopter.
However, the player doesn't have to evacuate and could continue fighting enemy npcs as this map can be played as a skirmish map. My favorite thing about this map is the evacuation on the helicopter ride. The aliens are ruthless when the player tries to escape. Sometimes they will joyride on the helicopter and even leave without the player. Furthermore, in the predator version of the map the predator npcs are allies to the player. They can be moved around if the player uses the netgun. If the player has enough nets (cheat code may be needed) the player can position the predators on the helicopter for the evacuation. I tried multiple times to evacuate all the predators, but they usually died or killed me in the crossfire. In my playthrough I managed to save one predator successfully.
I highly recommend this map. Go play it.

Note: I'm using some HD textures via Yaji's High Quality Resolution Textures v2 and my Blood n' Guts mod for the gore.
