CSS Event: Big Map Show Time - 23-08-08 @ 6PM

Postby alias on Wed Aug 13, 2008 4:09 pm

Yep, as many noticed during the last test we had alot of abstract maps because of the j2 abstract map pack. however, that pack included 2 maps which went over 60MB which is too large for server 3. because of this we decided to make a event for just those 2 maps just like we did with museum and wanda before.

The maps are:

arghhh
A large map by nipper in the same style of blahhh. It contains alot of weirdness which should get you lost in a very short time.

ImageImageImage

de_absurdity
Another weird map by AlphaKennyOne. This map contains alot of weirdness also but is less likely to confuse you, however it contains alot of jokes of which some are traps. Many rooms in this map have a theme like audiosurf, rickroll or mario. The name of the map describes the map excelent

Both maps contain jokes and traps but the way they are made is diffirent. The only way to find out how the maps are is by playing.



Download *Clicky Here*
76,7MB zipped (146MB unzipped)
Note: When joining the server you will auto download the maps. however, its alot slower then as there will be alot more people downloading so its recommended to do it this way.

During the event only this maps will be played and will change time to time to make sure you are able to play both.

Event Details:
When: Saturday 23rd August 2008 @ 6PM uk time
Server: UKCS#3 - 213.228.232.222:27030

The server will remain up in to the night allowing everyone the opportunity to come on and play these maps.

All talk will be on


This event has been scheduled in the UKCS Steam Community calendar and will post you a reminder when the event begins (1 hour before and the moment itself).

Do these need to be downloaded before hand, or is it just a way to be quicker and more prepared?

Its alot quicker. if 20 people would download at the same time you surely will notice it goes slower. Further, as you can quickly load the map the change you get kicked for using a reserved slot is alot smaller.

Yep, a bump so people will not forget about the event.

btw, remember to download the maps anyway even if there is a chance you cannot play. they are still worth a look.

submarine was awesome :)

me and cookie monster were in the sub (opposing teams).

A CT tried to take a few shots at me, trying to kill me as he'd followed cookie monster.

I hit the switch when cookie monster got in, the other ct got stuck in the door...

we saw his rifle flick into the sub and the sound of someone falling to their death :)


was hilarious... couldn't stop laughing!

That was absolutely brilliant, those maps were huge and took forever to explore, arghhh especially. We started off on the same team and ended up exploring but then Mr. Sponge got moved to the other team, didn't stop us though.

The submarine was brilliant, and the fact that we had mic's took the game to a whole new level. "Oh, there's a guy who's just got in the sub with me....this is awkward, I'm pointing a gun at his head just incase..." and then Sponge to Bonzo..."Don't shoot us...don't shoot us..." *knifes me* "That's it" Sponge riddled him with bullets. I feel sorry for the other guys who were just playing normally on the two maps. Are chatter must have been annoying if not somewhat off putting xD

I vote there be more nights like this soon :D Shame I missed the main part earlier on, but it was just funny to go around and listen to the music.

"Go in there...there's a cake...go and jump on the cake..." "NO. The cake is a lie, it's a trap" *facepalm*
