Well, here is the finally done CS RS map ctf_cs_italy
i spend a bunch of time in this, i hope it was worth the effort.
This is once again a soldat translation of a Counterstrike map, in this case cs_italy. i tried to match the style of the buildings and copied some objects from the original, these are the one and only fruit market, the terrorist building and the long pavillon/tunnel to the terrorist building. in my eyes i really managed to give the map a rustical and italian flair.

here are the map datas:

Polygon Count: 897
Scenery Count: 500
Custom Scenerys: about 30
Custom Texture: Nope.
Botwaypoints: Yes
Playmode: CTF Realistic Survival
Players: 6-12

Your maps just get better and better :0
I love the mix of scenery and polygon, it's very seamless. This effect makes the buildings look awesome. All the litlle details make the map even better.
My only possibile complaint is the odd perspective of the leftmost and rightmost buildings, they look like they are tipping over :p
Anyways, good job.

"My only possibile complaint is the odd perspective of the leftmost and rightmost buildings, they look like they are tipping over :p"
I noticed that as well, especially with the rounded tower the perspective is way off ;)

Besides that great job it looks quite nice :D

Nice map, but what I don't like is that you mix 3D and 2D wich doesn't look good.

August 19, 2005, 7:36 am
looks nice Avarax, though i dont like the fact that its based off counter-strike :(

August 19, 2005, 10:24 am
ty for the nice feedback :)
those 3-D buildings were actually not planned, i just wanted to experiment with them. i hope the RS CS servers will be back up again soon so u can enjoy playing the map :) they are currently down because custom mapdownload doesnt work

try Alt + Tab during game and then return to game, that should fix the problem. i don't know the reason of this bug though, maybe it's because i put more than 255 scenerys...

next cs map will be de_nuke or de_chateau btw...
but before that ill make the csmappack v4.0

August 19, 2005, 3:24 pm
Avarax, I'm getting the same problem, I did what you said, but it didn't do anything.
I checked out teh scenery-gfx folder adn I havn't actually got the scenerys:
and deagles_crate.bmp.

I also checked the zip, and they're not in there either.

Looks great anyway!

August 19, 2005, 3:37 pm
ya, avarax, those sceneries that Sliker Hawk posted are missing. Seems like you didn't include them.

Sliker Hawk: Just download the cs mappack, and it will fix the problem.

EDIT: You will still be missing a scenery after you downloaded the cs mappack, you will also need cs_deagle. And once you get that, it should be fixed.

Oh, please, make cs_estate. After extensive testing, I have decided that this map works best (for the closest to CS) with PS31's weapons.ini mod. Very fast faced action, very CS-like.

August 19, 2005, 11:21 pm
eh, i siad the wrong name, it's not de_prodigy but de_chateau ;/

i hate estate although i think it could really be a nice soldat map

August 19, 2005, 11:55 pm
This map is great; it's my favorite of all your CS maps.

If it?s anything like the rest of your maps, chateau will be excellent, I can?t wait.

You should do 747 and militia too.

Nice map, it looks pwnage.
Avarax, I'm currently working on a Piranesi map because you have inspired me. Cheers.


August 20, 2005, 4:52 pm
Wow, i play CS and that looks almost idenentical only a 2D version, lots of work and effort can be seen in that wow very nice job,

I'm a sucker for CS maps. I also love big maps. That makes this map, super awesome. I'll play it when I'm allowed to play soldat again. ;P


September 21, 2005, 12:38 am
Excellent job, man. I'll be sure to download these once I get my laptop back online.
