  1. Hey guys. I have been thinking about this for a while, but haven't really got to it because I don't know how to do it, but what about making a frames per second version of Mirage, Dust 2, Cache and all other popular DM maps. My thinking would be to shrink the skybox, as open skyboxes are not needed in deathmatch. This way you could make more enclosed areas. Also removing certain props and models could possibly lower cpu usage. This version could then be used by deathmatch servers exclusively. My FPS in this game has gone down severly since I started playing on release, and it is particularly bad on deathmatch. What do you guys think? Is this something someone would be interested in helping with? Haven't posted here in years, stopped mapping when Valve "ruined" SDK and rendering went from taking 5 minutes to an hour, so my mapping skills are nonexistent.

    compile time

    Nope, went back and checked very old VMF's, and all have the same values. Also, it takes around 30 minutes to compile, when it used to take 5 minutes, is there a way to shorten the compile time? Waiting 30 minutes to see if one small detail works is tiresome.

    compile time

    I tried that, but now the ground looks blue at some places, like the lightning is really weird.

    compile time

    I steal this topic; I tried to compile now for the first time since forever, and all models are black and the lightning is way off. I remember that they changed something a while ago, but is there a guide to compiling or something?

    Congrats on the release! The map looks amazing. Small feedback; The A site feels a little "poor", not much room to play with. Consider adding a box or something here; http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/491275750283579839/9410D9BDB5DABC6B407DB7703A132FD7A5E822AF/ For example, Xbox on Bsite dust2 makes that bombsite so much better, both for CT and T, because you can play every angle on it, It's fun with something that you can run around, like quad on cache, or your own B site.

    I will have to agree with this, the lightning does not look realistic one bit.
  7. I don't really like the theme you are going for. Depressing brick buildings with pale interiors. I recommend that you spend some time on google and find a good theme, something a little happier, it is the very first step that you should take if you have a basic layout.
  8. This smoke is no longer possible, as it hits the diagonal wall https://youtu.be/g9WfIXWgU5s?t=79 Did you add anything here? https://gyazo.com/1f7aadbf83ff7d3411a9cf7e21802246 Because somehow it always bounces on that thing now. Ok found another way to throw the smoke, but from on top of the crate. But I noticed that jumping up on the crate is pretty messed up, your character are forced into a crouch position, it can't stand up because of the fence above it.
  9. Valve has so much money but won't spend a dime on keeping the community in check, it's a big joke. Before I started playing PC I thought Valve was the best developer since their games was given so much love, well I don't think that anymore. Sure they do a lot of good stuff like operations, SDK support etc, but their customer support is a punch in our face. That this hasn't been solved yet is not only sad, it's pathetic even, spend some money on the community ffs. on topic: I don't think that's how you are "supposed" to do it, look at this thread etc: https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/46erxf/the_new_radar_is_really_good/ It will look really weird if you just remove the rest of the map from the minimap when you go down to A. What about teammates that are not down there, they will just be in the dark?
  10. True, source sucks, but I think you are misinformed about what CoD gameplay was before. It was just like cs, but called search and destroy. The maps were built for that gamemode. The true reason to why maps are like they are now is probably because of what you said, source limitations, but also because it is the easy way to make maps, it is very easy to get an idea on how the map will be played, control rotation times, timings etc. I like it, but more open maps would be welcomed.
  11. In my opinion space like that is the reason to why CS maps are so linear and full och corridors. Maps are mostly a theme and then a random set of corridors. Early cod games handled maps much better, with little to no "negative space". Look at maps like Crash, strike, terminal, highrise, backlot etc, all amazing competitive maps. I think mappers spend too little time on layout, mostly they spend the first few hours, weeks on it, and then months on the theme. @fmpone: What is the name of the brick textures used in the map? Like this one http://puu.sh/l8qP4/fb7a98d77d.jpg to the right. Customs I guess since I have never seen it in another map.
  12. Currently switched to paleo since I started working out. As long as I don't mix fast carbs and meat my stomach seems to handle it just fine. I'm not trying to lose weight, so I eat a lot of chicken with my sallad, and walnuts, fruits etc. I also "cheat" the diet by adding feta to my sallad, it just adds so much flavor. For my sallad today I will have cucumber, carrots, iceberg lettuce, chicken and feta, and after I usually eat a banana or an apple, and some walnuts. If you skip the walnuts you should be deficient in calories.
  13. Got the highest grade in two courses in a row now and started going to the gym. My diet is working like a charm and my stomach feels better, but it will take weeks before I know for sure how my gut handles it. Soon I have caught up with school, so tired of being behind. But for the first time in months I feel like everything in life is moving forward, each day is a step forward. A mixed feeling of happy but also extremely stressed.
  14. You can search for "log" in your csgo folder, after a compile, the latest compile log will be at the top. In the log, simply search for "numportal" and see what number it says. I started out with something like 17k which is way to much, got it down to around 2900 after hours of func detailing.
  15. Looks amazing, that wooden floor caught my eye right away.
  16. This is a real improvement! But on the bombsite, does the yellow line go over the crack in the ground?
  17. 4th best movie of the year after Force awakens, z for zachariah and ex machina, a must watch!
  18. Went to the gym for the first time in a year almost, and haven't been working out seriously since 2012. I did a set of deadlift with 26kg's and had no trouble lifting it, but when I tried to do it again my legs were in so much pain. I really need to get my strength back so I don't get hurt by every little thing. :/ Had no problem with the upper body, no pain at all, but the legs damn...
  19. I think it would be awesome tbh. On majors the teams could have their team gloves etc.
  20. The rocks look so good.
  21. Did not find a thread where you could ask random questions about SDK (csgo) that did not have anything to do with a specific map. My question: I did a house in one VMF, then when I try to copy it to my map it doesn't snap to the grid. Any tips on how to fix this?

    Good to hear, you're the guy that made all the night maps btw? If so, I expect great things from you, feel the pressure.

    The cements gotta go, looks really depressing TBH, make it light! The carpet where the chairs are looks like something from the 90's, not very modern. See the sunlight and the white'ish colours?
  24. Hey crohns brother! Let me guess, you also have a history of eating bad for years, lots of meat, sugar and so on? The western diet isn't very healthy. I have found that avoiding sugar and meat is the best cure for it, better than any medicin your doctor will give you. Most people can live like they didn't have the disease by going vegan, but most doctors don't suggest it, because changing your behavior is harder than eating three pills a day and having a little pain. I would call my self a part time vegan (lol) and the differences between the days that I eat a plant based diet and the days I eat meat, candy and drink cola is huge. Currently I'm at my dads over the holidays, trying to study while I'm here, tired of being behind all the time. January will probably be the most stressful month ever for me. So it is a lot of stress, like a weight on my shoulder all the time. I just have to hold it up for a little while and then I will be fine. Hopeful still!
