Actually I read a while back that people actually figured out it was somewhere in Russia.

it's not anywhere
yes, people showed that the view from the citadel is st. petersburg, but it doesn't look like st. petersburg from the ground and there are other things that point to other places

Gotham city, Springfield TA and City 17 are all generic cities.

Wow...old thread

Seeing a mixture of American-style English, but metric highway speed signs, along with white dotted lines on the highway, originally led me to believe it either took place in Canada or the developers weren't careful when they were designing that stuff. Eastern-European is as definite an answer we're going to get.

How are people digging these things up?

A 6 year resurrection right there.

Was wondering the same thing. Between this and the real headcrab thread. But it is a good thing he resurrected it, without him I don't think anyone would've known the events of HL2 took place somewhere in Eastern Europe. Cheers Mr. jcs224!

Isn't there a way with vBulletin to lock threads after x amount of time?

Yeah, he is Bulgarian, but he didn't base the entire city on Sofia solely.. there are parts that resemble western Europe too. So it is really tough to point out an exact region.

Anyways
Da jivee Antonov. :)
