surf_quik

A Map for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

“ In a contest heavily focused on gameplay, this entry did a great job at producing a very slick map to play on. Surfing around this map felt great, with plenty of opportunities to build and maintain your speed. It really reminded us of some classic maps and felt it did a good job producing a new map in their style.

While this contest was gameplay focused, there were still points on offer for visuals and this map really lacked there. A stronger theme throughout the map would have really helped make the map stand out more. ”

Feel the air fly past as you cut angles through the sky.

(Quick side note for future reference: if you want a bug fixed or a custom version of this map made for you or your community, I will likely do it free. Please do not remix/transform/build upon the map on your own, as it is protected by a license prohibiting you of such activities. Instead, contact me on steam!)

What's in a name?
==========

I call this map surf_quik. Why? Well...

1. You can surf qui(c)k(ly) on it.
2. A popular manufacturer of clothing for IRL surfers is known as quiksilver.

The Map
==========

Wow. As many of you know, I have done tons of map ports/fixes for my CS:GO Combat Surf Servers but this is the first project I can truly call my own. This was easily the largest challenge I've ever had mapping for CS, but I personally love the payoff, and I hope you do too!

Those of you who play combat surf will recognize many of the elements of old combat surf maps have been combined with brand new concepts that I have drawn.

The Old
==========

- Ground boosters similar to those seen in Buck maps
- Middle boost similar to that seen on xDre4m
- Long, smooth and elegant ramps similar to those seen on Shimmer
- Crazy fight locations and platforms similar to those seen on surf_10x

The list goes on and on. The map, while it sports many vibes from other maps, still has a very original feel to it. I tried to keep the map as balanced as possible regarding the battle between snipers, shotguns, and rifles. I even threw in some LMGs and SMGs for some extra fun.

The New
==========

Weapon Placement
==========

- 15 Novas
- 15 AKs
- 15 M4s (Silenced)
- 6 Scouts
- 6 AWPs
- 2 Autos (SCARs)
- 2 SGs
- 2 M249s
- 4 MP9s
- 4 MP7s
- 4 UMPs
- 2 P90s
- A buy zone for anything else

Secrets
==========

- Special way of getting out of jail from the inside
Look around, does anything seem out of place?
- Quick, secret teleporter
X marks the spot.
- Shape of the map when viewed from above (unintentional)

:^)



Theme

==========

Whoops! Looks like the ancient Aztecs got caught in outer space again.

Recommended Settings
==========

- sv_airaccelerate 10000
- sv_maxvelocity 3500
- weapon_air_spread_scale 0.04
- automatic or assisted bhop
- designed with fall damage in mind, but can be played without it

Map made for the NightFall Community and for the GameBanana CS:GO Combat Surf Map Contest (Sponsored by furious-clan.com)

This map is all about ramp combat, so if you like [timer] maps because you need to have "talent", then go home. Get ready for speed, blood, and a face full of shotgun shells. Grab yourself [a shotty] and jump into the madness.

    Just as Gladeare said, the smoothness of the ramps is pretty spot on!

    Visually there are obviously a few things to be said, but I think you know which ones those are. The gameplay, in any event, is really nice.

    I personally find your map, alongside surf_innovation and surf_sportsarena, to have the most comfortable ramps to surf on. That's definitly something I will learn from for the future :)

    Good luck in the contest!

    Nice map, the ramps are very smooth and the concept is good.

    Errors I found:
    -Weird seam on the jail's corner (outside)
    -Pixelwalk and seam at a wall on one of the platforms that teleport to jail
    -Bottom texture at jail ramp turned by 90
    -Seams at the back of ramps in curves
    -Large seam on bottom of splitting ramps
    -Shadows not aligned with skybox

    None of the errors are gamebreaking, most are just cosmetic.
    I'd love to use screenshots but the site won't let me...

    Also, I'm not really a fan of having so many simple to reach awps and scars, but that's just my personal opinion.

    Good luck with the contest! :)
