de_forest

UPDATE: I noticed that alot of people were commenting on a lack of ambient sound, I just checked and I forgot to include my custom soudscape and soundfiles!!

I have just updated the ZIP file to include these files, simply redownload and re-extract to your CS folder (not your maps folder!

Hello everyone, Im pleased to announce the release of De_Forest!

There's been alot of blood sweat and tears to get this into the state it is today, also figuring out how the hell to make a forest map work in the Source engine, but Im pretty proud of how it looks and plays now.

It should run well on most systems with a ati 9800 / nvidia 6xxx or above, not sure about below that as I havent been able to test on lower end systems.

Intro: ======= Terrorists have been hiding out in the woods for months and are being hunted down for information on spies within a number of high ranking organisations assisting in plotting terror attacks.

As the terrorist team you must destroy all evidence of such activities by planting bombs at either of the two sites which were being used as the hideout.

As the CTs you must secure the hideouts and prevent the terrorists from destorying the information.

Tips: ====== If you get lost, find your way back to the river and look for landmarks which will point you in the right direction. There are also many signposts dotted around the forest to help you find your way to the bombsites.

Footnote: ========= Thanks to everyone who offered feedback and advice on this map, its been a big challenge and a hard journey and I hope you have fun!

    Pros:

    • Excellent Map Size
    • Bots Know There way Around
    • The Map is Fun to Explore
    • I like the way you showed the Bomb Site's Through the Signs!
    • You Deffinitely paid attention to details!
    • The Map isn't flat, it's bumpy and wavy like a forest should be
    • The Visual Landmarks were cool (Felled Tree, Camp Site, Light Shinning in)

    Cons:

    • The River is Glitchy (Light in Some Places and Dark in Others)
    • Some Parts of the Map Lag (I'm Using a Haswell GT755 Graphics card with all cores running CS:S, it still lags)
    • This doesn't really make sense as a Bomb Defusal Map, it would make more sense to rescue Hostages

    Improvements:

    • Add more ambient sounds (Random Animal Noises, Chirping, etc)
    • Make the Site B Shack an actual building with rooms like you did with Site A
    • Trying adding more FX to the river like the water splashing against the rocks

    Notes:

    • This is a great map and it's close to being perfect but it's not quite there yet
    • It would be nice to get a cs varient of this for those who like rescueing/guarding the hostages!

    Beautiful map! It looks so nice and realistic.

    But as a mapper I have a request for you. There are no good tree models for CS:S on GameBanana, so could you make your tree models public? I think this would benefit the whole community :D

    :D

    Posted by mat.duf very nice map but in console i hav : Material props/plants/foliage_detail does not support vertex format used by the mesh (maybe missing fields or mismatched vertex compression?), mesh will not be rendered. Grab a programmer! every seconds

    also have this, I think it appear with the OB deforest0085.th.jpg
    deforest0086.th.jpg

    Same here. Can You fix those issues Brisck1 or allow any other mapper to do it? This is a great map and would be good to have these errors fixed.

    I have the same problem too, is this issue being tended to? The fps performance of this map is also another concern. Just saw a review that gave this map a 10/10, lol.

    Ima noob n I help other noobs
