My first beta for my in-depth and detailed cs forest map.

This is my first official beta for cs_little_forest. With this being the first beta I need to know what I can do to improve this map. There is a lot of work to be done on this, but I need to know what you guys think since you will be the ones playing on the map. :] So far the map features: -Lots of ambient sounds -Lots of cover -Foliage -Buy zones for each side -Lake with fish -Steam coming from the water -The world is cold so players will see each others breath -Wind Still adding: -More to the design/layout -HDR (when I have the map 100% complete) -Optimization -More displacements -More lakes and paths -Looking to add cliffs This takes place in an early morning battle, birds will chirps, frogs will croak, steam rises from the water. Players will see each other breath, after all it is fall and it's cold. :] I'm hoping the map gives some environmental vibes off to the players. Please keep in mind this is my first beta, so this in not the final product! Any suggestions, feedback, or ideas are welcome, but please don't rate this map a 4 then give no reason. I need your feed back to improve this map to a proper release! I thank you all for taking a look at my map, and those of you who take the time to help me out with it give feed back and ideas. Enjoy b1, and look for my full release to come out soon, I hope. -tpskjarhead

    Hi! It's me again. lol

    Did you know the next-version release time??
    Becuase I can't wait to play it with my friends
    And did you know how to climbing up the destructible tower?? You know It'd be great sniper spot, or It's just trap for whoever stand near gastank.

    PS: when I used noclip and get a look from above, what is square things that have darkegde on the ground. I've seen it all areas in your map

    That's because you are exiting the skybox, those are just holes in the ground. As for the tower, there is no ladder but I may add one in the next version.

    Release date for the next version is still unannounced, but I'm working on it. As soon as I have an estimated date, I'll let you know. Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it.

    OK...Here's some bugs (I thought other guys might not happens like this)

    When I create server.After it finished,It has some text appear said "Sampling Walkable space"(May not be exactwords) Then everything is stop except backgroundsound. And I must press Ctrl+Alt+Dlt to exit!!!

    The sample walking space is VALVe's way of "rendering" the map for bot use. As for it getting stuck after, I'm not exactly sure, no one else has reported this problem to me. I'll see what the problem may be. Please be patient and I will do the best I can. :]

    Pros: Everything look realistic :). Fog/Steam at waterfall, Bird chirps, Frogs croaks. It's remind me of crysis in "Fall weather" version :)
    Cons: Well...It seem like you dont put some tallgrass,BTW you just put the grass on the ground texture. And its look weird for me.(Maybe other don't)
    Improvements: I'll gave you 9.4 Because some things are still not in their places.Like grass that has only ground texture.And season I gave the sounds for 9 is: The wind blowing ups sound spooks me out - that's remind me of some horror movie that I was saw when I was young
    Notes: Ummm...pls release the new version,I can't wait to play with myfriends (I'm fan of outdoor-forest map)and Actually I like your M4skin-origins where did you get it??

    Dude...

    1. Every map you post in the CSS Area is for sure a Counterstrike Map. cs_ stands for hostage rescue maps so dont confuse people by naming it cs_ cause it isnt a cs map. I also would call it fy_ or aim_

    2. There is no "little" lag...

    It lags like Hell! You really should remove the fog and optimize the map. I got a very fps friendly config cause i know how to make a config, and even that doesnt prevent me to get fps drops from 120 to 5 on your map.
    And believe me - many players dont even know how to simply OPEN their config. So
    for 98% of all your map is unplayable for sure, so please overwork it.

    I wont rate it now cause its a beta, but ill subwatch it and im looking forward to the next version, cause the overall theme and setting of you map is nice.

    :\
    I got a solid 55-60 fps on mine. A few points dropped to about 40's, but after optimization it will greatly help the problem. Thanks for not rating, like I said I was looking for a rating that is based on the look, theme, ambience and layout. :]

    The reason i gave you a 7 for all, is that we playtested this map right now, and it is unplayable.
    Did you try this on a server? Because on a 100 tick server, if people begin to join, right after 4-6 men the map begins to lag like hell. People have almost NO fps in the area where the fog is, and as we were 10-12, and someone shoot the destructible tower, we had just 1 image coming every 2 seconds...
    Ive had to change it away....
    I can not judge about the other aspects of the map, since i didnt have the opportunity to see it... Does look good on the screens, ingame a little unrealistic but nod bad.
    Thats all i can say, until you make it playable on a real server :)

    Oh and forgot to say: Do not name it cs_ . Its fy, aim, or maybe even gg, but definitely not a cs_ map. That stands for hostage rescue.

    I knew this would come up eventually. I put cs in front of the name because it's for counter strike, and I don't want this to be a fy map or a gg map. I want it to be a Counter Strike map. Wasn't sure what else to put in front of it.
    As for the lag issue that you are getting, is it on all of the fog, or just on the little stream? Because I also notice an FPS drop on the little stream, but not the lake itself.
    A quick question about your rating, for ambience you gave it a 7, why? Also for sound you gave it a 7, so birds chirping, water flowing, frogs croaking, and wind/leaves blowing around isn't good enough or what? I'm just a little confused by the rating. I was looking for a looks rating, not a playability rating, which is why there is not category for rating how playable it is. I realize it will lag a little because I haven't optimized it. I know I should have put that there and will add it soon, I'm just asking if you could rate the layout, the looks, and the ambience of the map. Not how playable it is, optimization will come in the next beta after I complete my layout and design.
    Thanks.
