It's a late friday night. Some people are still working hard at the Tomppa's office. One of the employees calls for his girl from the server room to say he's coming for home soon...
See my other maps from http://www.ics-base.net/css_maps and the servers that run them!

This is a night/evening themed map. Not too dark because nobody likes those situations where you cannot see your enemy clearly. FPS is great, map runs very smoothly and there is no special effects like HDR due to fact that they are not needed. This compiles under 8 minutes on normal which is a great success! It's around cs_office sized map overall but in many levels. There is a large parking hall beneath the ground and office is divided to 2 floors. There is also street level and lower street. Terrorists spawn at the office area and CT's spawn around the office building. They must perform a tactical strike in order to save the hostages. There are 4 rescue zones available.
I designed this map to bring new view to the Hostage Rescue game mode. Usually the hostage maps turn into campfest by terrorists or by CT's who do not even try to get the hostages. This map plays out fast and there are minimal count of actual spots where to camp out. This map is very intense and brings action to game - a lot of it. The more people there are playing, the more intense the map is! This map has been tested on 38 slot and 58 slot servers and it performed great.
From the beta version to the final, i fixed the too slow door, route on top of the truck (added ladder), fixed all the bugs and glitches + i added more detail into the map too.
This map turned out to little smaller than i expected but it played even more faster than i anticipated. I found this quite confusing at the first initial playtest with real humans
but after few playtimes, i found out that hey, this is great! So much action and so different from all other maps. Have fun!
Thanks for the feedback and yes SlayerFin, i am from Finland.
CptDobey, i wouldnt say the outside area is brighter than the inside one. It's just the surrouding lights that make it so. The map uses settings designed for the particular skybox so it's perfectly fine and not too dark. This is still sort of early evening and not night yet. FPSBANANA just doesnt have setting for early evening so thats why it says dark / night. It's better to see your enemy than cuss and not to see where the shot came.
Map is fun, fast and brutal but why is the outside part as bright than the interior?
It is supposed to be the night, and it's brighter than a sunny journey.
The map will gain in atmosphere if you make the outside part darker.
Search on google for cs_meatlight, your map has many common point with it, but it has a darker outside.
Balance: balanced out very nice, almost every time wins are even for ct and t
Design: good touch to "de_office" environment
Detail: details are great as usual in maps by icsx
Fun: really fun because the speed, and like you said, no campfest
Looks: looks nice, great lighting
