surf_greatfissure

A Map for Team Fortress 2

A classic surf map with a not so classic redesign

Surf_greatfissure v1.0 July 26, 2009 Listen up, boys! Those reds have been sinkin' their teeth in the mountain and the water of these parts for long enough! Their ranglin' of this fissure has gone on long enough. So we're movin' in and takin' over. We'll sneak into the fissure, build a small base from which we'll show 'em what's what! Besides, the stockholders want us to look all "green" even though I keep telling them we're not green, we're blue! YOU HEAR ME? BLUE!! SO GET OUT THERE AND BE TEAL!!! Don't forget to go hit the facilities before we get to all that running water, because we can't ALL be so lucky as to carry jars o' lemonade with us. You know I remember greatriver as one of my favorite surf maps ever since I started surfing. Even though the majority of people would find excuses such as "it only takes like 10 seconds to surf to the end!" I would still find small maps with arena gameplay most enjoyable. When TF surf came out, greatriver worked so well with Team Fortress' gameplay, but it was a shame that it didn't take advantage of TF2's unique environments and style. That was a while ago, since I started on this map many other versions of greatriver have converted it to use TF2's textures, but not quite its environment. This is just my take I guess. I purpously didn't change the gameplay too dramatically, even though there are some tweaks. Only thing about this map is you shouldn't play it with a full bladder. --Installation-- Simply extract the .bsp to Team Fortress 2\tf\maps Map & content by Phraggah Special thanks to cLutch & the intox community for allowing me to exploit their underlings to mercilessly playtest my map.

    This is definitely one of the better-looking surf-maps I've seen. I haven't been able to play it yet though.

    Posted by .Cracker Also the the assessments box was not working for me when I rated this so the score will not count to the total. Overall Score: 9.5/10
    Try now. You have to make a post and then add the score afterwards.

    Pros: It is a very nice remake of what I consider to be one of the greatest surf maps. The original theme and textures seperates it from being just another remake. The added sounds really create an environment for the player. Cons: While on top of Jail I tended to get stuck in the hole where the water enters jail. Additionally at the area with P and TOP when you look at the waterfall from the side you can where you put the nodraw textures. It has already been stated that the rain falls through the ramps and platforms. At the bottom while there is an exit out, it is small and not easily recognizable. Comments: I was unable to test it out with multiple people in the server because when I checked there were no local servers playing the map. With a few minor touches this could be the best TF2 surf map that I have ever seen. Also the the assessments box was not working for me when I rated this so the score will not count to the total. Overall Score: 9.5/10

    Posted by Sparks? Surf maps in general are stupid... and in team fortress 2 it is just a giant fail.
    Not really. Maybe you just can't surf. Great map if i haven't said it before.
    It does fall flat in tf2. The point of surfing was to get to weapons and get to camping spots and other stuff, while looking out for a puddle to land in. In tf2 you spawn with weapons. Because of things like scout's double jump, teleporters, and sticky jumping it takes out the need of thinking how to get where by just exploiting the map. Respawns make getting to the end point less... and sentry guns... my god its portal camping but with even less work. Oh well, its still fun to mess around in (and to make the enemy snipers rage).
    If someone knew how to run a surf server they would disable certain classes amirite?

    The map has been on my servers for a 2 days now, and people love it, and so do I. The only thing which I personally find annoying is that you can't build anything in spawn. Also what this map could need to spice it up a bit is secrets, there are tons of locations on this map where this could be implemented.
