I searched for a thread similar to my question and I found none, so here goes:

The map for Alchemilla Hospital in Homecoming is very different from the map of Silent Hill and Silent Hill: Origins. Seeing as the original and Origins takes place many years before Homecoming, what would the map look like now? Is the back door we take in Origins gone now (if you flip the map to how it appears on the map of Silent Hill, where would the back door to that outdoor area be?)?

Is what we see the present day Alchemilla? Or is the layout of the hospital just a part of Alex's nightmare?

I believe his nightmare just created that Alchemilla map.

That alternate entrance/exit from Origins that didn't exist in SH1 poses enough problems on its own.

I prefer to think Alchemilla simply underwent extensive renovations in the 20+ years between SH1 and Homecoming.

You mean in terms of what we see on the map?

It's basically what Mephisto said, the map can be disregarded because it appears in a nightmare.

I know. When I first played Origins, I was confused as to why they did that. It wasn't present in SH1, so are we to believe that the town decided to take portions of the hospital down between Origins and Silent Hill?

A note regarding construction of Alchemilla Hospital in SILENT HILL: ORIGINS explains the map variation between it and SILENT HILL.

That's what it's there to explain.

Yes, but Droo and DMChristensen were talking about the first floor of Alchemilla and I assume that your post was in response to their discussion.

It indicates remodeling has been occurring. One of the notes read "Currently," implying, to me, work has been done elsewhere before, especially considering it has, thus the changes on the first floor. A hospital doesn't remodel its entire building at once.

I was just saying that the note doesn't explain the first floor. I'm not saying it couldn't be explained and I actually think it's a relative non-issue compared to the introduction of Canyon Street.

note that the hospital can be seen in silent hill later in the game., but on a side note, it could be considered as only a map in the nightmare as the map describes alchemilla as an "ASYLUM FOR THE MENTALLY ILL"

I'm with Droo. Probably the hospital underwernt a lot of work over 20 years... Also, 0rigins poses a Hell of a lot more questions than anything in Homecoming... I think that would be the wiser focus here. ;P

I don't think Alchemilla's incarnation in Homecoming had anything to do with Alex's 'nightmare'.
