Bot's Navigation Mesh for the map DE_BALLAST_RC2

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.

Credits and Gratitudes: SM Sith Lord and Mylk (for very realistic and fight-friendly industrial themed map).

Additional Gratitudes: BarnDoor (for perfect playable navigation meshes for many fine CS:S maps), Chizbone (for informative and clever article BOT_BRAINED and a set of excellent navigation meshes), CoCoNUT (for fine hand-tuned navigation meshes for many fine CS:S maps), Valve Developer Community (for learning articles by Navigation Meshes and Navigation Mesh Commands).

Play & Enjoy! Also aren't lazy to share impressions ;-)

    Great nav mesh for a great map. The layout of the map is nice and interconnected, and it has a great visual aesthetic for an industrial map. Fights with bots are more consistent and robust now. 10/10
