    This is one of my favorite defuse maps in CSS, I hope you'll port it to Global Offensive, and maybe we'll have the awesome surprise to find it in the next operation!

    Map is great. However my crosshair disappeared after I installed this map. Did I do something wrong?


    in console...type cl_crosshairscale 500. I don't think my map did that. :D
