Coast Background Map(Animated)

A GUI Mod for Counter-Strike: Source

A peaceful coast scene - Background map!

I love the background map for Ep2 so I thought I'd see if CS:S could use them too. It can, sort of. You need to autoexec it which adds a second or 2 to the startup time.
About: It features a coast scene with the water fading off into the distance. Alyx is quietly sitting on a rock minding her own business, enjoying the atmosphere. The gentle crashing of the waves is accompanied by the squawking of seagulls, and the odd helicopter...
Installation: Right click the .rar and extract it to your steamapps/your-name/counter-strike source/ folder.
Important! You need to add the line "map_background backgroundmap" to your autoexec.cfg file! If you don't have one create one by making a blank text(.txt) file, putting the line in and saving as "autoexec.cfg" making sure file types is set to "All files".
To do: Put in more seagulls(?) Add more rocks and such. Maybe animate Alyx more.
Notes:
  • You may need to wait a few seconds for it to actually load, be patient before declaring that it doesn't work!
  • This is for both widescreen and standard(I think). If it looks stretched please tell me.
  • Menu colour & font not included!

    It seems, today is the day of good ideas:D How about putting a ship into the water, and (if you have too much time) facepose alyx in a sitting than in a crouching pose. And, maybe make a sunset or something, which looks more interesting...or at night, with a big, pale moon. Oh yeah, and maybe trees around that place, so it doesn't look so empty. And set the fog end distance higher. That's what I would suggest. :)
