    Thanks!

    zm_firewall - Many many times admins and users alike complain about the red crate firewall room and it is almost impossible to over run with just one person.

    zm_lilapanicbeach_chodefix3 - Duplicate - Underneath the stairs on the second floor. Although it is not a crouch spot(You can jump through, tested myself)... Actually many complain about this spot but is it really illegal and not just noobish? Thoughts?

    zm_choddapfpanic1 - Lot's of discussion over this one. However, I've seen skilled zombies take it with ease. Thoughts?

    The rest I don't know.


    And how about having someone remove all the illegal spots? I'd be happy to do it if you'd like.

    [Edit] Here is an extensive list of all the maps and their corresponding illegal spots.

    Firewall - 2 spots that qualify as illegal.

    Both crouch spots.

    Panic Dark - Vent

    Beach Chode Fix - Only one spot. Under the stairs. But like I said this isn't actually a crouch spot as you can jump through, it's the cade on the other side that stops you.

    f3_v3 - This ones a doosy, three crouch spots and an impossible spot.

    This one however, I do not believe is illegal because it is possible to jump straight through with a well executed crouch jump, tested myself.
    Here is a pic of it from the inside:

    Your thoughts.

    fixed_pf - Clean

    isethen - Two crouch spots and one ledge spot worth noting.

    l_v3 - Vent

    lego_final - Two crouch spots and a leak (of which the humans could jump through).

    V2 - Money Box, two vents and the tubes.

    v2a - Vent and money box

    westside - This is more of a personal one otherwise this map is clean.
    The two areas in which you use a vending machine to get to are impossible for a zombie after you have successfully gotten up.

    I believe it would be in everyone's best interest to treat these as ledge spots.

    Chodda pF Panic - Their has been much dispute over this spot as it seems impossible to get humans. However, I've seen a single skilled player take it out with ease, by himself. But this is a very small number to set a stand.
    [IMG]
    I think this spot should be illegal anyways.

    pFcF1 - Clean

    That is all the illegal spots I could find, I hope this helped.

    that is alot to ask from any one mapper. And first, the illegal spots need to be defined before we can remove them :smile:

    the most annoying one ive experienced is the red crate spot on the firewall map...and its a more-than-common spot for noobs/new players.

    i think we can fix all these issues by letting everyone know about ilegal spots, the question is HOW

    BTW is that a flying poptart cat farting rainbows?? o.O

    I've seen CSS servers where default maps have server textures plastered on them. I believe there is some sort of plugin which can be used to put server textures on maps without changing the map file. With this, illegal spots could be marked and people would be deterred from using them.

    Another option is adding a votekick to servers with maps with illegal spots.

    Illegal spots on each map can be called up by typing !illegal in game. As for enforcement, we have a good number of admins now that can assist in enforcing the the rules. I am sure one is in game to assist as you read this. :smile:
