Start from scratch; please.
« on: August 16, 2012, 01:34:07 AM »
In CS:GO the lighting and textures are different (not all textures changed). The game has a more cartoon-ish atmosphere than CS:S, and as such, all surf maps for GO should be made to reflect that. Using CS:S textures in CS:GO will make the map look bad and that's all there is to it. In CS:GO you run faster than in CS:S (noted by the surf_legends jail), so you will have to map around that. Ramps also look smaller than they are (see surf_legends in CS:S and CS:GO), so keep that in mind.

A note to server hosters,

I would advise you to wait before hosting a surf server. Once quality CS:GO maps are made or quality ports from CS:S are done should you host a server. KSF's impatience has led to a very terrible experience. The server is extremely laggy, the few maps are CS:S and TF2 (really?) ports that suck, and you can't even see what you are downloading or even cancel the connection while downloading.
Be patient and wait while Hidden Path addresses these issues.

I honestly don't care if you listen to me or not, but at least think about what I had to say.

Thank you.
What the fuck happened?

Honestly, TF2 ports would be way better looking than CS:S ports. TF2's art style is a little bit closer to CSGO's than CSS.

Everyone's rushing the move over to CSGO. I understand you guys want to port the maps before some 12 year old does (Like the kid that made the skyworld port), but CS:GO's hammer editor has lots of obvious problems that are holding back some of the maps that are now basically permanently ported already.

Please don't port any more maps until the full game is out, and CSGO Hammer has less bugs.

Have they even fixed adding weapon_ entities yet?

We need to agree on settings to map for. There will be too much fragmentation now that you can change the tick rate.
