Counter-Strike: Source : Bot's Navigation Mesh for the map DE_BALLAST_RC2
Nav Creator: Meurglis3, Release Date: December 18 2013
Here is the Navigation Mesh for excellent industrial themed map de_ballast_rc2 by SM Sith Lord and Mylk (released September 2008).
It's a carefully tested and totally reworked (hand-tuned) .nav-file (author's original simple auto-gen was included in .bsp-file of initial release).
The most noticeable improvement - it seemed VERY noticeable at first sight that bots was absolutely ignored the both short passes through ventilation system! Though besides in the original map author's nav-file inaccuracies and subquality work sufficed. Alteration and handwork took away a lot of time...
Bots use ALL possible ways and skillfully operate with vents and ladders now.
Well... it's better to look most, than to read a lot of tiresome words! :D
Also this Navigation Mesh is fully Place Painted.
Happy Frags and Cheerful Play!
NOTE: For possibility of comparison and in-game testing the original map author's .nav-file embedded in .bsp and available to downloading with the same map.
