If you've seen a good custom map, please let us know about it, and preferabley provide a download link for it too :thumbs:

It should be suitable for 8-20 players, meaning not too large. It should look professional and provide balanced game play and enjoyment :)

When you suggest one, it will first of all get looked over by the admins, then tested on the server and only if passed then will it be added to the mapcycle. We want only good custom maps to make it onto out server 8-)

Anyone? :side:

There are loads of maps here (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=50). Maybe someone will go through a few of them and post any good ones?

not too sure about FY_Poolday_reunion.

It is too much like a kill box and you tend to die before you can move. And there is no point to it, that i have found - just a TDM.

skywalk2 is different though, even though it is mnore like a TDM than most o the others, it is good.

We just played cs_bank and it seemed to go down great. We had 14 players for quite a while :thumbs:

A nice simple, small and fast map, with enough different routes to get to the hostages to keep the T's guessing. Also, a nice small room for the hossies, so if they camp them, a flashbang means almost certain death ;)

i liked Bank, not quite the same as the original Bankjob map but it was cool.

had a few requests for some custom maps that we dont have from some players - one inparticular was de_westwood. i ent looked at it, my linux box decided to die on me and tryna fix it now :(

ok, got a small pack of maps together - 7 in all, i'll provide a link later when i have sorted hosting for it. (c. 24mb)


***EDIT*** - link is HERE (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/braggdown/graeme/extramaps.rar)

Can someone else try de_guerilla_tactics (http://www.cstrike-planet.com/maps?id=608) and tell me if they get really bad FPS lag?

Also, when mine made a nav file, the CT bots wouldn't leave the start point :? Let me know if you have any better luck...

McBain
25-05-05, 05:40 PM
New versions of spetsnaz and assaultvilla have replaced the older versions. :)

helios

Guerilla tactics has fine FPS, i ent had a chance to test the bots yet, but i have found a little bonus for the ts if they can plant the bomb quickly.

Overall, that map is a bit simple and is more likely to turn into a TDM rather than a DE

Thanks to IXL for this link, CS BANANA (http://www.banana.nu/?section=viewlist.maps.maptype.main.2) looks to have a lot of custom maps on it. I now know what I'll be doing over my holiday next week ;) Look for some new maps to be on the server next week :thumbs:

I love the custom maps on the server, the normal maps r jst crap. There so boring n get played 2 death.

My fav is cs_bank jst because its jst a realistic map n even 4 both sides.

Any new maps would be gr8 as they cant get any worse than inferno or port.

I like De_rats, Its a good map. The only problem with De_rats is, sumtimes you get camping Ts. But with the people you get on your server it will not be a problem :)

McBain
06-06-05, 01:32 PM
It's funny you should say that. I've just uploaded 6 new maps, de_rats is one of them. The only problem is the bots don't work... but I think rats is one of those kind of maps that attracts people, so we shouldn't need bots. :thumbs:

The other five maps that I will get into the rotation this afternoon (still uploading to the download server) are de_bora, de_canal, de_haywire de_warzone and I finally found the source version of requested de_westwood. The pack can be downloaded here (http://www.nurcs.com/090605.rar) if you would prefer not to have to connect to get them.

cool more maps I love new maps :)

helios
06-06-05, 02:09 PM
rats, interesting 1. Yes, the CT bots and T bots get stuck at the start, obviously dumber than Rats (i have had them move out a couple o times).

and YES - Canals :D

It looks like people are voting it onto standard maps today!??! What sense does that make, come onto a custom map server and vote it onto standard :roll:

(This is done by 'rockthevote'... I don't know why, I don't know how I can stop it, unless I disable rockthevote)

Delta
09-06-05, 02:55 PM
If its a custom map server y do we need "rockthevote"

We can vote at the end of the rounds thats all we need

McBain
09-06-05, 04:05 PM
I'm thinking thats what I'll do.. Then there is no way for people to get to those boring standard maps :twisted:

Penguin
09-06-05, 04:10 PM
are you sure there is no config file to change it?!

Delta
09-06-05, 04:18 PM
The only standard map i like is office dunno why probs just because its the first one i ever played on !!

"Rockthevote" into the water

I know realy bad joke :!: :!:

McBain
09-06-05, 04:26 PM
are you sure there is no config file to change it?!

I think it is in the configs, but it doesn't work properly. It is set to use maplist, there are no standard maps in the maplist... I don't know where it gets them from :?

the new maps...

Westwood went down well but everyone bitched constantly during Canal. Tbh i didnt like Canal either

McBain
12-06-05, 07:20 PM
Really? Any particular problems with Canal?

The other thing, keep an eye on what maps seem to actually empty the server. I might take docks off. It's weird, I see people connect when it comes up, but more people seem to leave. Maybe because its quite large and a lot slower than most of the other maps.

Crippler2032
12-06-05, 07:24 PM
canal is run left start shooting, run right start shooting... i dunno why i really dislike it i just do :/

helios
12-06-05, 08:01 PM
canal is a bit too simple. Canals on the other hand is a bit more like it

i just been looking for random maps, playing them and suggesting them :) But i can try to find out more

You might want to offer a little more description to entice others into trying them. And when you find your 'random maps', book mark the link ;)

Here are a few I have played that I enjoy

cs_reflex is a fun map to play now and again it is a bit like the aim maps but a massive gate goes up and down to give each team a breather, plus at begining of round the gate is up so no spawn Headshots.

http://maps.tjfweb.com/content/view/91/81/

Pool day Reunion

Well I would hope every one knows this more of a speed map but great for the reflexs

http://csm2.net/view_map.php?map_id=911

Bedbugs

This could replace de_rats as that has not been done right

http://csm2.net/view_map.php?map_id=1010

Best Buy

Fighting in a big supermarket kinda has it appeal in a funny way. If onl there were queues and crying kids you could lob a grenade at.

http://csm2.net/view_map.php?map_id=1327

Lestat
16-06-05, 09:54 AM
Ohh and I forgot

Matrix Lobby

another speed map but I love it so :P

Poolday used to be on the server - i think it was removed, it was one of the least favourite maps.

Lestat
16-06-05, 02:46 PM
Probably cause people do not like the speed of it you have to be lighting quick

McBain
16-06-05, 03:14 PM
By the sounds of reflex, I think I gave that the elbow before it made it onto the server :side: I'm kinda trying to vere away from the 'novelty' maps like skywalk. A couple of them are fun I guess... but generally people seemed to prefer 'proper' maps.

I will try get a look at the other three tomorrow though :thumbs:

I recommend knife arena or bloodbowl, two very good knife maps :D

McBain
09-07-05, 10:36 AM
For the record, this morning I have added 5 new maps -de_menace_small - very nice map
de_academy2k5 - perhaps not one of the best, we'll see how people like it
cs_facility007 - from the N64 game Goldeneye. No bot support though :(
cs_terminal7 - Nice looking, a bit large
de_pipeline_v2bfix - interesting looking, but again, perhaps not one of the best maps on the serverFeedback on these maps would be appreciated :thumbs:

helios
09-07-05, 12:08 PM
Seems to be a texture prob with academy - nice map tho

McBain
09-07-05, 12:13 PM
A bit better detail of the problem would help...

Don't you do IT support and the like? Does it not annoy you when someone mails you saying 'this doesn't work'? Don't you think 'Can't they be a little more specific?' :roll:

helios
09-07-05, 12:16 PM
the usual texture prob - the purple check - in the big hall mainly

McBain
09-07-05, 02:15 PM
I just played terminal7 and facility with around 14 people on the server, did the vote question about liking the map, not one single 'no' came back :thumbs:

If your gonna add anymore maps, just please make sure there not small ones, like pool day, i hate that map, there is no point having small maps on your server, as you do get a lot of people on them, it would be a lil silly! You could have a funny one on there, like the lord of the rings map, its rather good!
