Half-Life 2 VR - How to skip the air boat ride and car ride ...

Playing Half-life 2 in VR (with this free mod, available through Steam) is just freaking amazing.
And as eperienced as I may be, playing actively in VR since 2016, the air boat ride is a little much for me - ditto the car rides. So how do we skip those without having to take a break every hour?

For this we can access the console, for those unaware: the console is like a terminal where we can enter commands.

The console is by default enabled, and can be opened on your computer desktop by pressing "~" (tilde) while the Half Life window is active.

To skip the boot scenes, we need to enable cheats:

sv_cheats 1

Next we need to jump to the map right after the boat scene, simply enter:

map d1_eli_01

and press Enter - you'll go to Eli's lab.
You can even skip that if you like by going to the map right after that (Ravenholm!):

map d1_town_01

Same trick can be used for skipping the car driving scene's:

map d2_prison_01
