**A quick update** (May 9, 2011)
What alot of people don't seem to understand is that the only thing this map has in common with Osama is location. I can see how people would think it is in bad taste, but honestly if that's your opinion you may as well protest the whole game (as well as many others).
Anyway, on to the real update. de-abbottabad is close to completion. I find it alot more enjoyable than this (fy_) version. The idea is that the T's have returned to destroy sensitive information before it can be located and taken away.
**Update Two** (May 10, 2011)
Just working on optimising the new (de) version. This is something I neglected in the fy_ map. Apologies to those who are having fps issues (myself included haha).
Once this is completed I may remake the level for those 1.6 players who have been asking for it!
**Update Three** (May 10, 2011)
For those of you who are interested, I started the level on the 3rd and finished it on the 6th (AEST). You can see a development log (of sorts) [HERE](http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/h2gza/do_you_think_someone_will_make_a_cs_abbottabad/c1s4opk)
I have tested the new version with 30 or so people and it seems pretty good. It should be released tomorrow! [Preview](http://fletchm.imgur.com/A9338#GilKb "Preview")

Fletch, I had to make an account just to rate the map and to comment in light of some of the negative responses on here. Thank you for taking the time and effort to put this together, it's clear that a lot of work and care went into this, which is remarkable given the quick turnaround.
I'd been following the thread on Reddit, and downloaded the map when it was made available yesterday. In short: I think it's polished, gets you into the action real quick, and is a real reminder of why CS can be so much fun. I'm really enjoying it!
To those of you who are up in arms about this: take a breather, there's no need to bring politics or sentiment into this. There is no underlying statement about Osama, al-Qaeda, or America. It's simply a Counterstrike map that's modelled on a newsworthy location; players pop in and shoot at each other.
The gameplay in itself has little to do with the actual events - for that, you can look to Kuma War's Death of Osama bin Laden game that got released today. The Terrorists in Counterstrike do not resemble al-Qaeda (or people of Arab/Pakistani descent), there are no Osamas, women or children. al-Qaeda is probably the last thing any of us think of when playing this.
Fletch, thanks again, and congrats on a great job! What maps have you made previously? I hope that you'll continue to model familiar locations for us to play with in CS :-)
I created a map based (quite loosely, I might add) on a dead terrorist's hideout for a game where the aim is for Counter-Terrorists to kill Terrorists?
If you think it's in bad taste then that's your opinion. That doesn't warrant a rating of 1 for the actual map though.
Yesterday, I was talking with a friend of mine about mapping, and then I said "Guess what, I'm sure we will find very soon a map about the Osama necro story".
This morning I wake up... BAM !!!!! :D
