    Hello all, hmm I just joined plaguefest as a mapper invited by Josh as he liked my work on fpsb... So thanks for invite and showing me this great community ^^ I have played css for around 3 years, and mapped for around 1 - 2 so in the near future I hope to be mapping for you guys so you have some new original maps as Josh tells me there are 4 maps you are all obsessed with lol. At the moment, I'm checking out the maps you guys play how you play them (eg where players go what spots they like how they fight the zombies off and so on) which should give me a good idea on the best spots to put in a map... I have never mapped for unlimmited ammo and this size server before so it will be a nice new experience for me, so thanks to Josh for appreciating my work and this nice invite!

    Now to Me hm
    My real name is alex, I like mapping, drawing, writing, anime, partying, having fun with my friends and helping people + some other stuff... I'm half english / half french and life in the UK in the southwest (devon), I speak french, english and can understand some japanese (learnt from animes.) I love helping people and always put others before myself, I hate all forms of discrimination and racism. I rarely have time to do much anymore, (really busy at the moment...) My background is fairly prestigious but not gonna bore you with that cause to be honest no one is gonna care :grin: Um I hate drinking, drugs and smoking... I very rarely get angry and am a pacifist... Thats all I can really think of.

    I went on your server today and I was really impressed with it, really well balanced unique server Josh and his team (don't know all of you or exactly who you are so I will put team) have done a really nice job so far! All the admins seem aware and really nice too! So far everything is brilliant, except for the fact that the players flame all the time but then again different culture lol so oh well :grin: Looking forward to working with you, if you have any mapping suggestions please feel free to pm them to me on here or on fpsb, my steam name is terrora if you wana add me there...

    First release: (which caught josh's eye)
    (Made for reload with 50 spawns, I was gonna adapt it to unlimmited ammo but there was no seeable or easy way to do it without mass changes so it is likely I will make a V2 which is somewhat different.) I like to map in detail and get things perfect so it takes me ages to map as I spend so long perfecting it and getting it right... That map took me 50 - 100 Hours + to make lol.

    Oh and my deviant art page is:

    Thanks for taking the time to read this intro, and for your invite into the community and a position in it ! Everything seems awesome so far and can't wait to get to know you all.


    + Good night

    Welcome and thank you!
    I hope you enjoy your stay here as long as that may be. Although we can't run your first map, I am recommending everyone to download it and try it. I've invited him here for a reason, and that is that his first public released map is better then most maps we have running. Thank you again ^^

    Hey Broski, welcome.

    I'd be one of those players that flame. :grin:
    I only yell at friends and stupid people.
    stupid people= they just piss me off.

    English and French at the same time? Does your French spleen wage war on your English kidney but surrender at the moment it senses unusually high urea content in your blood?

    2 things

    1st hopefully things will go well this time. We made the last mapper we had leave because we bitched too much.
    2nd the other alex in here does not know how to map and is a gaybop

    with that said I ask you to come with me wilderness exploring. this is me

    I'm sure I will, and no problem pleasure is all mine ^^

    Hehe, ye most zombie mod servers consist of 90% - 95% of noobs and 10% - 5% decent people / pro's Have yet to work out the balance on plague fest :] So some swearing is to be expected I suppose, thanks for help proposal too :grin:

    Thanks, and I look forward to playing and working with you guys :grin:

    Thanks a lot!
    Thats good, I started off on hammer with a hugely complicated project which I spent 70hours long 3 versions and I still only managed to make 1/4th of the map and the reason for that is the source engine isn't powerful enough for intense brush work, diagonal corridors and aesthetically pleasing maps :grin: If you need some help just ask, but mapping a lot isn't for everyone hehe :grin:

    Thanks, hopefully from looking at all the other maps and how you guys play I should be able to work out a decent set of spots and map to go with them :grin:

    Nah actually my right eye tries to have a staring contest with my left eye, then they like realize my nose is in the way so they like "ah dammit", nah :grin: If anything my brain might like move around because of it <---- might be cause of all my headaches thanks for helping me diagnose the problem :grin:
    1/ Hehe, I don't complain unless people just post "its shit" without backing up why, and giving improvements.
    2/ No comment :grin:

    Thanks :grin: Me to @ you

    Hehe thanks and I will probably stay as long as I can :grin: Thanks I can't wait to start compiling some ideas, just need to get a good image of how it should be with what spots (might stick a vote on forums somewhere asking what spots ppl like and asking to explain why.)

    Yay thanks :grin: I love drawing, by buying a graphics tablet I could finally join the online drawing community without my drawings being ruined by scanners or a camera :grin:

    Thanks everyone for all of the warm welcomes, can't wait to begin working with you!

    And now I gotta dash cya!

    Hehe, i guess theres an Alex1 and Alex2 now :s

    I try to make some of my...."creations" as basic as possible, because that appeals to me directly, and i like to call it my own work.

    Making some gigantic, Complex super detailed map on the other hand....not worth the time and effort since like you said, source can't yet handle it.

    but a simple looking fun map will beat one of those any day. i make mine with lots of buttons :grin:

    Alex and gaybop alex. gotcha

    explain that horrible map with the water
  14. Mar 12, 2008
    that was my first map i created, and the first one that saw a public server.

    either way, i tailor to my own needs. not everyone elses needs. i got great FPS on that map. and dont lie. nobody went below 100-400fps :smile:
