- Rotating world(Fixed rotation cycle)
- Music(Random selection)
- Loads of fun and death
Rotating world? Wut?
The map itself rotates by 90 degrees every 5 - 15 seconds.
Here's a video showing the rotation cycle: [video link](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4FBH-P_5kI "trololo")
Bugs and notes
- The screenshots above were taken from the same position and angle
- Sometimes, you might get killed by the map for no apparent reason
- Walking on the map can become strange after a few rotations
The Source engine doesn't handle moving brushes very well, so the bugs noted above are likely caused by that.

I made this map a few years ago, I know that it lacks quality in both brush work and texture choice/balance.
The brushes seem out of place because the map was made with server plugins such as WCS or RPG in mind, which I forgot to mention in my submission post.
The textures were supposed to give that 'crazy' feel/look, so I mashed up bright colors and hoped for the best.
Honestly, the map was just a proof of concept. But as you can see, the Source engine doesn't really 'like' moving brushes(the collision boxes of the brushes get moved out of place).
Anyway, thanks for your feedback. I'll keep it in mind for my future maps.
Confusing to be honest, many things are a bit bothering to say.
The map's look is really flat; lots of textures you used are hurting my eyes, they are so much bright that as you may notice they get plain and starts to blend with the walls, which I dislike. These textures do look really innacurate, you should try to delete the brightness out of them, as that's what is causing the problem from my point of view, they are also so badly mixed that they even can be a substract to the map. None of them are eye-catchy to say in first instance.
The designing is not quite the best though, and really leaves a lot to be desired. The map is not solid, in many parts I was able to shoot through if I was enough close to it, I mean, they have clippings. And that includes a gameplay disbalance if someone gets for example, in between those three triangles that seem to be resembling a green squared Pacman. If that player gets there then the round has already a winner, in reference to the unbalance in those parts.
Besides that most of these environments are really unnecessary, mostly because they aren't a plus to the map and I'm talking for example about that smiley face you added among with other tower look-a-like sticks, really out of place. They also when the map rotates they seem to lost consistency at those moments and therefore you pass through them in the fall, crashing in the ground after and then getting dead. A really bothering issue to say, also to mention that idea of making the map rotate doesn't contributes to itself since it kills all of the bots and I'm sure that in online gameplay this happens too.
As for miscellaneous things, the FPS optimization is devastatingly bad at some times, it's a real pain to play this with even 10 bots aboard and don't let me get started with a 15 vs 15 match, the low FPS can also be a difficulty increase since it makes accuracy disappear when playing, and rather a gameplay disbalance if you're playing with bots. I would also suggest to not put music on your maps since everyone hasn't the same tastes, and being neutral with that, I feel that I am in a kids party rather than playing CS:S, to be honest. It is a lot annoying to play with it in, consider removing it, as it would be for the better.
Overall, I give this a honest 6, the map is concept can be good, although the execution is bit of unfinished, to say the least.
This map is very interesting because
of the glowing Textures and the rotating world.
This is my first feedback and i will do my best,
and here it goes:
The Rotating World is a completely new map Conzept and in combination
with the Glowing Dev Textures is this a funny Idea. Perhaps you can make
a new map with areas like a Forest then Desert etc.
The Lights are balanced and the Background sound is funny and gives the Map
a certain something.
The Song is balanced too (not to loud or to quiet)
The map is very funny and is good to play.
The World Rotating can kill me thats a problem, but you can fix it.
Just add this : http://css.gamebanana.com/prefabs/6062
Disable the Falldamage
Make a new Map with other Lights and Areas ... Dust, Forest, etc.
Add Soundscapes and do for every Area one Sound
The map is very funny and you can add much new things, but fact is
you have created a new map era with the Rotating World. I like it
and you can do so much things with this Concept, make some more
maps like this with new areas.
Well this was my Feed back i hope you like it and if you want some help contact me.
I think I took a little too much candy from that nice man by the alley...I-idunno...
Anyway, This isn't half bad! Although, it doesn't need to be so bright. So god damn bright. It actually hurts my eyes.
