Jail concept by Paper-Cut, Jail scripting by Turkey Eater.
This map developed when I figured out how to make complex ramps, and pretty much showcases them throughout the entire level. Players start with no weapons, and depending on how well they surf, they will get better weapons. It is suggested that you do not run this on a DM server, as a lot of the functions were made specifically for a normal surf. We have a DM version in the works, and it should be out sometime soon.
This map was made specifically for 66tick. It will NOT function correctly on 100tick, so don't come here complaining when you try it.
Install: Put the bsp into cstrike/maps folder.
Thanks goes out to:

Pros: Well-placed ramps, smooth surf. Very aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Cons: Surf on level 3 is too fast making you feel like you're lagging. The weapons in jail aren't a great combination (m4/ak instead of the crappy galil perhaps?). Some ramps sometimes stick in random places because they are so smooth (it's inevitable no mater what tickrate you play on).
Improvements: What I would have done with the map would be to make it longer (and continuous instead of levelled) with less ramps and a more severe increase in difficulty the further you get. I worry about the first level and whether you are sectioning some players from surfing the map starting on such a high skill in regards to the surf.
Notes: I reallise that it is all-too-easy to critisise a map so don't think that the cons outweigh the pros, as the cons I mentioned are quite small and have no major significant effect on gameplay. Overall though, this is an immense map with a lot of detail put into it. You have taken your time with your work and it is bettered by that fact. A worthy download and a quality map.
Pros: Smooth ramps
Improvements: None, you got what you could have with MAX_MAP_PLANES
Notes: Not that my rating matters because you are in the studio, but this isn't as good as it could have been. I think it looks great, but the jail is suppose to tie the map togather, and I think it is a bit of an afterthought. Good work, but it doesnt seem to have much longevity (I could be wrong of course)
