The '''Black Mesa Biodome Complex''' is a location featured in ''Half-Life Opposing Force'' in the chapter ''Vicarious Reality''.

==Overview==
The Biodome Complex is a large facility located in Sector E section of the Black Mesa Research Facility.FileTram map 01.png|Black Mesa Transit System map It contains a series of simulated environments where captured aliens and flora are kept and observed in artificial recreations of their natural habitats. Alongside these enclosures are laboratories where scientists perform studies and tests on the creatures in closer detail. Some parts of the facility appear to be under construction at the time of the incident.

The Spore Launchers can be found in one of the containment rooms. These creatures are actually infant version of the Shock Troopers. It is possible that the scientists had encounters with the members of the Race X before the incident.

==Behind the scenes==
The Biodome Complex was created by David Mertz. He was responsible for the design, construction, implementation of architecture, and gameplay.http//davidmmertz.wordpress.com David Mertz's personal website According to Mertz, the complex was initially constructed as a whole, then broken up into the three levels. He was very happy with its modular design, game flow, and unique look that still managed to capture the feel of the Black Mesa.{{IA|20010427130058/http//info.gamedesign.net/spotlight/gearbox/gearbox2.html|Interview with David Mertz|Info_beta}} The FileOf4a1 hall.jpg|entrance of the complex is based on the FileDatacore hall.jpg|maintenance hall from the multiplayer map ''Datacore''. There is a multiplayer map called ''Black Mesa Biodomes'' based on the location in the Capture The Flag mode of the game.

There is a FileOf4a3 bond.jpg|broken glass case labeled 007 in the specimen room where the player finds the Barnacle Grapple. This is a reference to WikipediaJames Bond|James Bond. James always escapes.
