This map is not endorsed by Behtesda Softworks, Obsidian Entertainment, or Black Isle studios. Any resemblance to anything in the Fallout Franchise is purely coincidental.Please don't sue me.


This map is intended as an entry to the "Lovable Entertainment Locations" contest on Facepunch.Com (http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1116946)

I did not intend to make this map for gameplay purposes. Though I did make 16 Terrorist and Counter-Terrorist spawns for use in any sort of roleplay, or multiplayer viewing.

Neither a navigation mesh or NPC nodes are included in this map, you will have to generate a navigation mesh yourself if you wish to use bots with this map in CSS.


In order to properly use this map in Garrys Mod you WILL NEED to have CSS properly installed and mounted.

To install this map simply extract the contents of this .Zip file into the main game folders of Counter-Strike: Source or Garrysmod.


You may host this map on your server if you wish to, though I would prefer if you would contact me first at any of the listed contacts.

It's not too shabby but I think there are some key areas which could use improvement.

- Very flat outdoor lighting, dangerously close to "allbright". Try changing the time of day and play around with pitch and colouring.

- Flat skybox texture imho.

- Detailing is scarce. The maps needs more detailing and irregularities... and overlays!

- 3D-skybox with a good "fog" effect and some distant mountains could look cool and give the map a better sense of place.

- Some areas have very "flat" ground. Use subtle displacesments.

It looks decent so far, The inside looks great the outside lighting could perhaps use a bit of work but it looks good otherwise. However if you want to sell the story behind shady sands (that is is a post apocalyptic settlement) You may want to consider adding additional props in the dining area (such as bottles, cans ect) and the outside looks a little too clean for a place that has supposedly been blasted.


Having a look at shady sands in fallout you can see the buildings have pot marks and cracks presumably from debris from the nuclear blast and perhaps raider attacks. (Don't know the full story of Shady Sands never actually played Fallout 1)

Looking good, just needs more detail to look great.

In my noobish opinion.
