de_castelvecchio b1 - A Map for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

A small de map in a Mediterranean castle setting.

**de_castelveccio** - Bomb-Defuse --------------------------------- The story so far... The wine crates stored in this beautiful old castle were always a great deal of annoyance for the members of the "International Non-Drinking League". So INL paid some professionals to blow 'em up. --------------------------------- This defuse map is pretty small and it plays best with 4 to 6 players. It consists of one big courtyard and some Towers and small houses built around it. This is my first map for CS:GO and I'm still learning the art of mapping. It's status is beta 1 and I will release new versions in the future. So please comment. Special thanks to the_falta for lots of testing.

    _@ JorisCeoen:_ Thanks for the good and helpful critic. > - It happened a couple of times to me, Terrorists sometimes stack into each other at their spawn, making them unable to move around until shot. I've seen it on your youtube-video. Don't know where this came from. Maybe another problem with the navigation file or start points? BTW nice video and review on youtube. :) Good you made a loading-screen for it. Feel free to post a link to it in this thread. > - Inside of the center building is a bit clean... I'll add more dirt. ;) > - T's have very quick access to the B bomsite, but with some good teamwork this is manageable. They have, but some grenades most times stop a quick rush. > - 'Castel' (castelvecchio) is wrong if you want it to be a **castle** themed map x) I just realised castelvecchio is a real domain in Italy, my excuses for it! I needed a name and castell or castle were all ready used. I am not referring to a specific domain or town. As far as I translated it correctly it just means "old castle". > Very very good map, this is what I need when I look for CS:GO maps :)! > Beautiful work! Thanks a lot :)

    Lovely map! I love the lighting and the 3D Skybox. Detail is present as well! I'm gonna note whatever PRO's and CON's there are though. PROS: - Superb Lighting - Nice 3D Skybox - Very good optimized - Good balance and many ways to choose from - Good bot navigation file - Detailed without being overloaded CONS: - It happened a couple of times to me, Terrorists sometimes stack into each other at their spawn, making them unable to move around until shot. - Inside of the center building is a bit clean, but this is really really minor and more subjective than really bothering. - T's have very quick access to the B bomsite, but with some good teamwork this is manageable. - 'Castel' (castelvecchio) is wrong if you want it to be a **castle** themed map x) I just realised castelvecchio is a real domain in Italy, my excuses for it! Very very good map, this is what I need when I look for CS:GO maps :)! Beautiful work! Im gonna very soon (probably tomorrow) release a video of this map within my CS:GO Bots series on Youtube, playing with bots. I created a loading screen for the video, if you want it you can always download it from the video description where it will be provided to add it to your download file(s). I'll put it here when it's uploaded. EDIT: here it is Youtube - de_castelvecchio_b1

    > **Posted by teshok** > map looks good from the screenshots im about to dl and play. I did notice from the screens some of the geometry could be smoother eg. Those arches under the building(screenshot 7) are very blocky you could proberly use the models from cs italy. More detail will be added in future versions. As for the arches - the are a bit blocky. But using the models from italy wont fix this cause the size does not match to size I wanted these arches to be. > Map plays well i feel it would be more suited as a demolition map. I'm glad it plays well. Maybe I delete one Bomb-Place or I add another Room for place A. But I am not decided yet.

    map looks good from the screenshots im about to dl and play. I did notice from the screens some of the geometry could be smoother eg. Those arches under the building(screenshot 7) are very blocky you could proberly use the models from cs italy. Map plays well i feel it would be more suited as a demolition map. The map could also use more detail here and there like some keyframe ropes at the moment there is no detail up high the roofs are very bland.
