No, this isn´t a new mod for CS:S: It´s because this game had his selling and commercialization forbidden in Brazil...

No, you aren´t reading wrong: not only Counter-Strike: Source, but also ALL, ALL CS series: 1.6, 1.5, etc...

"A Federal Judge in Brazil prohibited the sale of the video games Counter Strike and EverQuest. The measure affects the whole country but started to be applied in the State of Goias, where the judge Carlos Alberto Simoes dictated the prohibition saying that the games “provoked permanent stimuli toward the subversion of the public order, [and they] were an attack against the democratic state and the law, and against public security."

    So what , that the judge forbade to sell these games in Brazil? Everyone (in this case in Brazil) who has head on his shoulders can download these games from the internet.I hardly believe someone still buys CS in stores instead of downloading it!
    I buy it. :S
