    I hope to be done with this sometime in January. Here's just a little teaser for now :bounce:

    P.S. Currently only 5% done.

    Why show a map that's 5% complete? It's not worth our while commenting in any length because 95% of it will change anyway...

    So that no one will go make another version of mansion. At least they can work on porting other maps. :stare:

    Your gonna have to get used to people making versions, better and worse ones. Just cause your making one doesn't mean others can't.

    Heck by just mentioning it you've probably attracted the interest of a few who will now go out and make one.

    btw mansion is a bit misleading, looks like a road to me ;)

    Nonono I mean its fine if someone wants to make another mansion. But what I said just applies to those who want to make maps which no one has made yet.

    So you showed some of your map to stop people from making a map like yours?


    Wouldn't it have been better to simply have not shown anything then, then they couldn't steal idea's :)

    If your intention really was inform people you're working on mansion so they can work on something else, well I've seen at least 3 mansion remakes already done at various forums and there are probably more. Unless you're going to do a remake of professional quality, there's no point because your hard work will just be lost amongst lots of average remakes and nobody will play it.

    Just create something original.

    APC + Trashcan + Road (poorly aligned textures) + bit of grass != any mansion of any kind (or map for that matter).

    Ive already seen a couple of remakes on this one. But why do everybody call it mansion? cs_estate is the original name isnt it?

    yes the original name is indeed cs_estate... but mansion somehow sounds more attractive IMO.. anyways... nice WIP so far.. keep it up.. hope it gets better then the poorly done mansion(estate) that runs the servers now.

    Harsh comments. Do a good job and even if nobody plays it just think of it as mapping experience.

    Progress update :

    I've added a little playground as well, just to add stuff to the map because the original cs_mansion was rather plain.

    Now. thats looking good. I think remakes should always have something new also. That playground thingie is definedly a good idea.

    lol, looks like you are putting most people's bad comments about your map to shame, good job! :LOL: I think it looks pretty good, keep up the good work.

    I don't know why everyone is hating on remakes so much. If they are done well, and add something new, then whats the problem? Obviously if you are remaking a crap ass map, then thats pointless, but when you remake a good map, I don't know why people complain.

    Wow, looks very nice. But I suggest you give it a different name when you're done, like cs_mansion_ns (ns standing for navyseal ;)), because there are already loads of mansion remakes, so it will be hard for people to find servers running your map

    looking good! I really like the carpet on the wall. makes the level very authentic. my one suggestion is that you change that redish/brown texture on the wall. It looks way to scratched up to be in a mansion. I know its been over-run by Terrorists.. but there should still be an essence of upper class living in the house, just like the rug on the wall.

    I think you should do some less run-down textures for the walls (normal wallpaper). It doesn't really fit with the dented and cracking walls but with perfect condition paintings hanging there. Unless it's meant to be abandoned, and if it is, then you should get rid of the paintings ;)

    One thing I thought about the original was that the front entrance was impossible to enter, I'd suggest making a porch area for it. Just some walls that go up to a player's lower upper-body, so that when they crouch only their head is visible. This way you could open the door and easily throw a smoke into the porch area, let it fill up and then make your way in.

    Just had another idea that could be really cool if you pull it off. Make an old fireplace in the basement that has a chimney (not big enough for a player to enter) that leads up to the living room fireplace. This might sound strange but I think it would add a lot to the gameplay, image the following that would be possible:

    - Player upstairs picks up an M4A1 and throws it down the chimney to his friend downstairs, who desperately wants one.

    - The T's realise that their teammate downstairs is dead, meaning the CTs are coming in from the basement. T's chuck a smoke and some HEs down the chimney and storm the basement in the following CT panic.

    - Alternatively, the CTs are coming in from the basement and decide to throw a grenade of their choice upstairs as a distraction, the guy camping the hall decides to check it out and the CTs rush up the stairs to cap him in the back.

    I dunno, I thought it would be a really good way of adding something very different to the map and proving that it's not just a simple port.
