    Guard [Wingman]

    Hey guys! Just wanted to drop by and present the first iteration of my new Wingman map Guard. The map is loosely based on the waterfront along Charles bridge in Prague. Since I mostly used stock models for my last map Feast, I am planning on doing some more modeling again and create a nice set of custom models for this map. For now, I don't have much more to say, and just leave you with a bunch of screenshots and a workshop link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2114573427 Cheers!
  2. Complexity does not equal innovation. You can innovate a level layout without mindlessly adding more and more routes. There is a variety of tools you can work with that are not "paths". One of the reasons why relatively "simple" geometry works well in Counter-Strike is predictability. In Counter-Strike you die very very quickly. If you get caught of guard, you are basically done for since you, as a player, don't have many tools to escape a sticky situation. Being killed from behind is NOT fun. That has nothing to do with "learning the ways of the map". If the map geometry becomes too complex, it decreases predictability, since players cannot rely on their back being safe. Furthermore, and that seems to be the point you are critizing it does make players having a harder time to learn the map. You got to keep in mind, that people will most likely spend their time doing something else, than trying to disect your complex layout just to master it. People don't do that. To give some feedback on the acutal piece: I think that's a pretty good starting point. I agree with @Interfearance that it could use some simplification in some parts. Parts of the map also feel a little cramped, like the CT area on mid. Furthermore there are a bunch of very long, straight and fairly bland routes, especially leading East and West from CT spawn. Routing for CTs that wanna go mid, feels a little weird since you have to run a "U-Shape" followed by a "S-Shape". Might be a little tedious to navigate. Retaking A side for CTs seems tough, since they have hardly any cover at close to the site. Keep it going! Hope to see the layout ingame soon Good job so far
  3. And here we have a prime example of why it shouldn't be released - Thanks for demonstrating
  4. Contratulations to the winners! With so many great maps in the top10, almost none of them would be surprising to be featured in the top4. This contest has produced an incredible amount of great maps. Glad to see it rewarded for some! Well done everybody!
  5. Uploaded some fun comparison sliders to my website - Check out the progress done between the last playtested version and the final result: http://www.paulstangl.com/feast/
  6. Too bad man. I hoped to run a Georgia double with you ;D Hope you keep working on it! looks really promising
  7. Already fixed, thank you for noticing!
  8. After a tough crunch time and several screenshots flipped, I can happily present my submission for the contest: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1984227885 There are a few areas (specifically custom content) where I would have liked to get some more work in, but since I did a solo run, I had to settle on something manageable. I am happy with the result, and hope you guys like it too I'll leave you with some screenshots. And some more:
  9. Thanks for the input! That's great

    [RELEASED] Manor

    Took a break from the current contest and dug this one up again after exactly 2 years. Changed some covers around the Bomb sites, adjusted timings for mid and updated lighting and radar https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1217276839 Now back to work on the contest map!
  11. Slowly starting to art this baby up - Still figuring out the style that I want to go with and am comfortable with in order to finish the map in time
