De_wadi is horrible

Postby trigger11 on Fri Aug 19, 2011 10:17 pm

hey guys im new here,

So I have been playing on UKCS 1 64 man server and I have to say its freakin awesome but the only let down is de_wadi. It's just horrible and has no taste, I'm very sure the muslim gamers will find this very offensive as there is Islamic calligraphy on the walls which purely makes no sense at all. The map itself is actually biased to ct.

Anyways, you guys are awesome :) Loving the server!

Hello,

First off welcome to the forums :)

Regarding the map de_wadi It is not officially on rotation and is only in the testing stage. We like to extensively test each map in order to check for playability, fps issues any roofwalking issues and the like. I am certain the map maker and we at UKCS mean no offense to muslim players and that the Islamic calligraphy was only put there as the map maker thought it would enhance the look and feel of the map. We will hold a review regarding your complaint.

Thanks

I have a senior admin at present getting an assessment of the writings upon the walls.

This map was not made to cause offence I am sure, and looks more a replica of a palace in Spain built by the moors(Muslims) who occupied parts of Spain as late as 1492. The palace has exerts from the Qur'an inscribed on the walls.

The map is not of the better ones on rotation. Should be replaced :)

I've now played it, and visually I thought it very disappointing.

I can't really comment on the caligraphy though, not my forté.

Listen to the man.
"The rover batteries have 18kwh of juice. The oxygenator alone uses 44.1kwh per sol. See my problem?
You know what? "Kilowatt-hours per sol" is a pain in the ass to say. I'm gonna invent a new scientific unit name.
One kilowatt-hour per sol is... it can be anything.. um...I suck at this ... oh FK it. I'll call it a "pirate-ninja".
All told, the Big Three need 69.9pn, most of that going to the Oxygenator and Atmospheric regulator."

Is de_wadi the big massive stunning looking map, that is a nightmare to play?
I love the map but when small amounts of people are on the server it is really slow and pointless.

Maps with few bottlenecks and nothing more are bad for big servers...
