De_Vigil

A Map for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

1st Place Secret Society

“ We felt Vigil was the best all round map. The judges were impressed by the high quality custom textures, and felt it had the best overall layout in terms of gameplay. Giblets has grasped the theme, and executed it to a tee. ”

"One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter"

De Vigil

Made by The Giblets of Jesus


This is my entry for the GameBanana Secret Society Mapping Contest.

Background
A secret society of government officials is bent creating a new world order, a singular totalitarian government to rule over the population of the world.

With news that attack is eminent, the headquarters have been evacuated and select group of 5 counter terrorists have been sent to the facility in order the secure the premises and take out any hostiles.

Meanwhile, a small group of political activists have finally learnt to truth and impending doom that this new society will bring, and have decided to take matters into their own hands. Tracing the headquarters back to an underground facility near a local library, their intention to stop the counter terrorists and destroy the facility by planting a bomb.

How to play
Since I've been using beta tools for this map, things are a little unpolished when it comes to setting up games, hopefully this will be improved once official tools are released, players must following the following steps for playing with bots. 1. Go to "Offline play with bots" from the main menu, and select the demolition game mode. 2. Select any map and desired bot difficulty and start the game. 3. Once the game has loaded into the map you chose open the console and type in "changelevel de\_vigil" without quotation marks. The level will change to De\_vigil, but also kick all but one of the bot players. 4. You can re-add the bots by typing "bot\_add" into the console to add a bot, and keep typing in the command until you have your desired amount of bots.
Video
I'm not very good at videos.
Other notes
Another downside to using these beta tools is that I wasn't able to find a list of CS:GO soundscapes anywhere yet, so I've had to use simple ambient sounds as a replacement. I might update this once Valve decide to fully document their soundscapes (as they have done with all their previous source games). I also realise a lot of you probably won't be able to play this just yet with CS:GO still in beta, so with that in mind, if anyone would like to make a version of this map for CS:S, leave a comment below and I'll see what I can do! As with most of my maps, I had to test the map with bots, so if anyone does any extensive player testing, I'd love to hear about it. Any constructive comments and feedback are appreciated, as always. **EDIT:** This map is now available on the [Steam workshop!](http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=126578977) -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is a "de" map afterall Well, yes and no. I made this map for the demolition mod that De Lade and De Safehouse use (Kill a player, get a better weapon next round) so buy zones weren't included for that reason. That being said, it's easy to see the confusion and I might make a version with buy zones in the near future.

    > **Posted by USF|Jack** > > **Cons:** > > - unbalanced > - detail missing > - radar/minimap missing > - custom content not binded into .bsp Seeing as the mapping tools and still in beta (and the game has yet to be released) I delayed making things like radar and loading screens because; 1. I just didn't quite know how to and... 2. The current way of implementing such features will probably become redundant in the future due to Valve updating them. I know it's wishful thinking, but I still wouldn't put it past them, especially seeing as they're looking to do workshop support for maps in the future. Also, would you mind expanding on what areas / features that you found to be unbalanced / undetailed, it would really help me out. > **Posted by USF|Jack** > Also here I cannot understand why people rate 10/10. They seem to be impressed by engine visual effect and new standard models, but they do not take other criterias into account. Sorry, just my impression. From mapping side I can just see 8/10. I don't blame you, I honestly had the same opinion before I won (I was hoping for around 3rd or second place, if that) and it annoys me just as much when people just blindly rate 10/10 without even leaving comments. I much prefer you're critical comments and rating slightly lower because it gives me something to work towards, so don't feel sorry, I thanks you for for being one of the few and taking some time out to give some actual feedback :).

    > **Posted by _Point_** > I mean u not include content with pakrat ...no, but I did include all the extra models and textures I used separately in the .zip file. So long as you extract the contents of the file to your correct csgo directory, everything should work fine.

Notes
I borrowed a number of ideas for this map from George Orwell's book "1984" which I encourage everyone to read at some point in their lives. Well, when I say ideas, more cameos from his work. The posters seen around the map (as well as on the TV screens) that read the 3 phrases;

"War is Peace"
"Freedom is Slavery"
"Ignorance is Strength"
are direct quotations from "1984". I also labeled one of the doors (seen in last screenshot) 101 which will make sense to anyone familiar with the book. Finally, when first designing the layout of the bombsite, somebody commented that it looked rather like a church, with rows of people down the sides and a single person at the forefront and them all. I rather liked this, so I stuck with the layout and added the large series of monitors with my own version of big brother on them with the 3 phrases mentioned above.
