Surf Galaxy, for combat surf.




Surf galaxy tried to lend a few elements from maps like surf_greatriver and other combat surf maps, while introducing certain new features such as dynamic elements which is almost never seen in other maps, and giving it some thematic material that could fit in the surf world.

There is anti-fall damage built in the map, a radar, jail teleports (with an effect to showcase), dual sideplatforms with boosters, improved booster speed (lowered on main ramps, increased on centrifuge ramp) and improved bottom teleports visibility. In addition, a few quircky ramps have now also been fixed after personal feedback. All the ramps should now be smooth, with no sudden hickups. This issue, previously also found on surf_greatriver_2015, is also fixed there as of 09/07/2017.

Using non-traditional level design methods for combat, I've been made aware that the gameplay on this map is hard, and difficult to enjoy. Unfortunatly, I have personally made the decision to halt development on this map, no further additions will be made. I might consider picking up development a (year or longer) later down the road, which means you have plenty of time to give feedback that will most likely be incorporated in the map.


  • Custom models, textures and sounds.
  • Custom playermodels and arms.
  • Top, Spawn and Bottom layers with teleports at the bottom.
  • Jail under top, with methods to open doors from inside and outside.
  • Weapon pickups with an effect under them to improve their visibility.
  • 64 player spawns.
  • Boosts to improve surf flow.
  • Built-in fall damage.
  • Resources such as radar, description, navigation mesh, loading screen and more.

The following commands are already in use by the map, and should not be meddled with:

  • sv_accelerate 7
  • sv_airaccelerate 3000
  • mp_solid_teammates 0
  • sv_clamp_unsafe_velocities 0

These commands MUST be enabled by the servers for optimal gameplay:

  • sv_enablebunnyhopping 1
  • sv_autobunnyhopping 1
  • sv_timebetweenducks 0
  • sv_staminajumpcost 0
  • sv_staminalandcost 0
  • sv_accelerate_use_weapon_speed 7

    Good work mate. Some feedback:

    - The ramps at the top level of the map feel a bit...for lack of a better word...small. The width and height is just a bit low, making them quite unforgiving - this could cause flow issues during combat especially while going around the circle.
    - The two way arrow boosts on the spawn ramps make leaving the spawn a bit uncomfortable - the player always has to make sure they're not jumping directly into a boost that's facing their opposite direction.
    - The labels for the teleporters at the bottom are a bit small and hard to read.

    Other than that, the map looks good.

    The workshop version was updated today with some important fixes. One of the jail teleports boosters was inverted, and 2 additional boosters as well. Server could manually fix this, but I have now released a version where doing so is not required anymore.

    In the future a lot of gameplay elements will also be improved, but for now at least it's completely playable without interference required by servers.

    Enjoy!

    I usually don't do surf maps but I must say, this is quite decent looking. Heck, if I didn't know this map was for CS:GO and for another game, I would be fooled.

    The bottom ramps are a glitchy mess and some boosts and weapon placements seem awkward to me, but other than that good work!

    Here's the full feedback I wanted to give you.

    *removed first argument since you added no-fall-damage*

    I'll start with the most annoying gameplay choice you've made in my opinion, this.
    http://prntscr.com/fnxg1k (the boosts really make it annoying to take the guns)

    When i'm talking about stretched textures, i'm talking about things like this:
    http://prntscr.com/fnxgd7
    http://prntscr.com/fnxgfr (on the subject of this picture, the lack of real map reflections really make it look not the best;/)
    http://prntscr.com/fnxgjc

    And there are small design choices I can't grasp on why you'd do that, like this:
    http://prntscr.com/fnxgpd (I just think a metal texture there would look better?)

    Your newest update broke this: 
    http://prntscr.com/fnxgvn

    And my attention to detail and perfection, this really bothered me.. this small gap.
    http://prntscr.com/fnxh7b

    Oh and.. the sun angles don't match the shadows :D but again, that's my attention to detail kicking in and making this annoying.
    http://prntscr.com/fnxj7n

    Look, overall, the map does look really great and plays alright, I just wish you had more time to finish it.

    I am NOT typing this as hatred, I am just giving you constructive feedback, thanks for reading, and goodluck. :) <3

    9.4/10

    Well, the map looks really good in the pictures, and that honestly made me really excited to play the map, unfortunately, the moment the game launched with the map, the illusion of a great map was ruined, as much as I really love the effort you've put into this map, it's clear that you didn't have enough time to perfect it, as some textures are really stretched out and gameplay isn't fully thought-out about, with some minor things that cause some serious annoyance for me.

    Also, about that no-fall-damage, it should never be forced upon servers to make it, either make it work or make your map work without it.. what a shame it had to be tested with "god" on, couldn't kill friends, or anything.

    (and yes, I know, you've tried making it, ent_fire can tell alot, shame you couldn't figure it out, it's not as hard as it seems.)

    You're a real competition for us, goodluck. :)
