Difference's From CS:S Mapping?

I don't currently own the game but plan to purchase it soon and was wondering if any mappers could tell me how much the mapping may differ from CS: Source mapping. If it doesn't differ to much I would like to start WIP's under CS: Source to continue on CS:GO. Thanks, Mess.

    It's the same editor. Only diference would be visual improvement and available content.

    I'd say it has a much massive potent for higher detailed weapons, textures, maps, etc.. It's much newer and has a better shader system, easier to handle better normals, shader packs, and all of the other technical tink tonks. Even the potential for custom gamemodes, like in tf2. Just overall better.

Idk, I still think cs wont get better then it was in 1.6 source looks better, but in reality, it ain't much of a difference. Anyone can make stuff look as good in GS engine as good as in Source, if they put effort ofc. If u ask me, CS:GO is just a game that valve put out so that they can take more money fron people, nothing else. Anyone can say anything they want, it is the hard foundational truth.

You can say anything u want, it is the hard foundational truth. I can agree to that, but there are some differences comparing cs 1.6 to cs:go. The main one just being it's the first counter strike game ever on console. I'm not trying to one-up Valve, because they have not been making any phenomenal marketing strategies.

Well yea, it's a strange move they made with putting it on consoles, but I cant imagine consoles for an fps competitive gameplay. PC is the king for all FPS games, consoles are for sports or games such as Tomb Raider, well, thats just how I see it though. Anyway, Valve could have just updated source, but they went for proffit, nothing we can do bout it.

    I think some of you are going a bit off topic now.
