UKCS:CSS #1 Map Test Event - 19/4/2013

Postby Lionheart on Sat Apr 06, 2013 1:40 pm

The classic poster.....

So, key details:

1. Friday 19th April @ 19.00 U.K. time needs to be written into your diary ;)

2. We have at least 3 maps to test, each of approximately 20 minutes long.

3. Maps include:


    cs_aurora_b2 by LaBello
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=59466 - Similar to the b1 version with some bug fixes & tweaks. This map has the largest file size of all 3 by far, so this is the map file:
http://files.ukcs.net/11739/cs_aurora_b2.zip

All you have to do is download that & extract the .bsp file to your cstrike --> maps folder. If you have a veryyyy slow internet connection (like myself!) ,you have the choice to download in advance if you so wish :) Obviously once you download a map version once, you will not need to again, until a newer version comes out. Otherwise just give yourself 2 or 3 minutes to join on the night.

    De_Nuclear_Meltdown_Beta_B4 by Liam Paterman

A much newer & improved version of the original map we tested, which had the name de_nuclear_physics.
Lurky has worked with Liam & this is darn awesome in my opinion - Can't wait to see how it plays for 64 players :D
Has a brand new bombsite B, much more signage & soooo many other things.

    De_pyramid_ukcs

This map may also get further tweaked by Lurky, using feedback given on viewtopic.php?f=17&t=54316&start=40

Looking forward to this :) I really recommend download cs_aurora_b2 before Friday so you can admire it's beauty in your own time without being shot at :) As Lionheart said it's quite a big file so you'll have the advantage of getting straight into the test as well and not having to wait 2/3 minutes with everyone else. It's the first in a series of Sci-fi maps that LaBello will be making so we can expect a few more great quality maps. http://files.ukcs.net/11739/cs_aurora_b2.zip

Nuclear meltdown is a big ass industrial map that was tested on here a few weeks ago to good reception. Since then it has been streamlined and made more user friendly with a clearer layout and no more dead ends. Liam has obviously listened to feedback so good job to everyone who helped out before.

As for pyramid I'm working on making the tunnels more functional and adding an extension to them to go to CT spawn like in the original :) also various other little things that people have mentioned have been tweaked, including fixing the shadows going through the ceilings and walls. I'll get a copy of it up here soon so people who pre-download can get a heads up on changes

Due to the massive steam update, the map editor system is not functioning correctly at the moment - therefore Lurky will be unable to tweak pyramid in time for this map test.

Therefore, as per this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=59499

We will test out an improved version of cbble, which we are especially keen to hear more feedback from the players !

Last reminder that if you have a slow internet connection, you may want to consider downloading cs_aurora in advance :)
