CT Team must escort VIP person to safety before Terrorists can assasinate him...

CT-team must escort very important person to the nearest rescue site before Terrorists can assasinate him. There are 2 rescuezones available. Created by ICS 27th of October 2008 E-mail: ics@ics-base.net WWW: http://www.ics-base.net This is VIP version (assassination) of my previous map de_hiekka. It has been improved since and 90% of the textures have been changed, more routes added to support assasination mode better and some minor fixes. The defuse verion can be found from here I decited to make vip-mod version of the map since there arent any good big ones available - or not even smaller ones. I looked the assasination section and it is quite empty. The reason why i made it so different looking is that players can easily spot which version they play. Have fun! PS: Hiekka is a finnish word and translates as sand in english.

    Thanks dude, the water was transparent and nice looking but it always seemed to reflect the sky even if it where in that tunnel. Its sort of sewer so dirty water is something that suits there better.

    Design: it's great man!!you got skills!
    With these textures...with all props and stuff well placed it make the map look like from other game....damn:P
    Realism: The good textures,props and all stuff in it with the HDR and the volumetric fog....make the map feel real man!

    Improvements: The only thing that i don''t like and i guess it can be improved...it's the reflection of the water man...there are some maps in here that have great water texture blueish...with a little bit of transparency...but i guess that's me...i like the realistic maps and i'll make an exception for this one;)

    Great Work! Keep Them Coming Guys

    That error about decals only appears if you fly in a certain building, outside of the map or high enough inside of it. It doesnt happen in-game while running out there alive and its not a critical error but the way map is created, its hard to get rid off. Thanks for the comments!

    I've never been a big fan of the VIP/Assassination mods, but this map is pretty damned good.

    Only problem I have with it is the 3d skybox. I thought the choice of textures was rather bland and you didn't correctly scale them down (1/16 or 1/32 size) using the texture application tool.

    But your use of detail and props was great.

    Maybe had a few too many decals for I got this error constantly in console :


    R_DrawDecalsAll: overflowing m_aBatches. Reduce # of decals in the scene.


    My favorite part of this map was your perfect use of the tools/playerclip texture, most custom maps are easily exploitable, but this one is even better then the Valve defaults in that regard.

    Overall a great job, may even want to update your de_hiekka with these textures for it looks A LOT better without the dust textures.
