===================== NOTE: This is BETA 1

Things are not completely finished. This is to test the stability of the map. I need you the community to give as much feed back as possible. ================================ MAP IS NOT FULLY OPTIMIZED YET. There may be some FPS drops in certain areas. Inside lighting as well as Vent lighting is currently temporary. There are minor details that need to be addressed.

================================ Place BSP and NAV file into your CSGO/Maps folder.

Radar and NAV is temporary. Place names not edited and NAV file not cleaned up. Radar || Color-correction || Soundscapes are embedded into the BSP.

====================================== If the competitive scene takes to this map, I will make an SE version with brighter lighting / less detail / and no color correction or Fog

    Wow, what a great map! :o Pros:
    • fantastic/varied layout
    • fantastic lighting :o
    • good detailing
    • good interactivity
    • good cover pretty much everywere
    • great custom assets
    • fun to play!
    • good fps everywhere(for me, core 2 duo 2.26, nvidia 9800 gtx)
    Cons: Nothing i can find, but i only played the map very briefly, and then again only as CT. Improvement: nothing major i can think of. Maybe make the windows outside the ct spawn breakable cause the missle to do something if you press one of the buttons inside(as a goof), and to add to the already good fun/interactiviy of the map. Fabulous map mate, great work! =)

    As I'm sure don't need to be told this but your map looks amazing. From my humble first impressions I must say the visuals completely blew me away, the map looks stunning. The lighting works really well (for the most part) and the textures are well chosen with the architecture well detailed. Now on to some of my problems with the map: The vents are really, really inconsistent. But before I go into detail about that, well done for trying the scaling up some of the vent textures to fit playing walking height (unlike Valve on Nuke :/), it’s good to see that level of care when you first walk into the ventilation shaft. However this is also where the problems begin, whilst the textures are partially lined up in the lower T vents, they are not lined up anywhere else. I can understand that it’s quite hard to line the square panels with all the inconsistent shapes of the vents design. Allow me to make a suggestion: scale down the size of the vent panels so that each panel is around 16/32 units high and then simply adjust the design of the vents to fit a scale of 16/32 and bingo, perfectly textured vents. Another solution would be to simply use a basic metal texture that has no panelled pattern on it, like in the ‘tunnel of love’ section of the Dark Carnival campaign in L4D2. Now on to the design of the vents: First you cannot shoot open some of grates on the vents. Now this wouldn’t be a problem if there was a way of instantly telling which vents you could shoot through and which vents you couldn’t, Black mesa source did a great job IIRC since the vents grates you could break open were clearly damaged. One solution would be to implement something like that into the map. Secondly you have to crouch when you reach the top of the ladder in the vents which is a little annoying, but can easily be fixed by making the height of the vent consistent throughout. Whilst I don’t mind the one-way system you’ve implemented into the vents, in fact I personally think it could lead to some really interesting gameplay. However the way it looks at the moment is a little weird and something about it doesn’t seem right. Overall I feel that it’s only the really the vents that are letting the map down. Now for one or two final points: Personally I hate the billboards that advertise the map, within itself. Whilst they are not as hideously obvious as the billboards in Mill, they still take away from the atmosphere without any benefit to the gameplay. The map needs a ‘.kv’ file, even if you want the map to feature the ST-6 and Phoenix factions there should be a kv to allow for some player model variation.

    Why not make the _se version and enter it into the Gamebanana/CEVO competition anyway. It won't be picked up competitively at all if it's too dark/foggy.

    Please make the final version 50 spawn points. I know it seems much but some servers do have that number of players. Cons: the ambient light it's too dark. the contrast it's too big.
