Shitty Maps Nights are where we take a few weeks to work on silly CSGO maps and then get together afterward to play them all as a group. There's no expectation of quality, so the idea is really to quickly put together whatever comes to your mind and then test it out for fun with others.
There will be 24 player slots and we can usually make space for anybody who shows up. Priority for slots in the case of a full game will first go to people who RSVP and submit a map, then people who only RSVP, and then everybody else.
You can submit your Steam name to RSVP here. You can optionally provide an email address to receive reminders and updates about the event as it approaches. Smurftyours, who is helping organize the event, is managing the RSVP list and will be sending the optional emails.
There will be updates posted via the Interlopers steam group and this forum thread as well.
Smurftyours is also organizing an optional raffle for those who RSVP, submit at least one map, and are present during the event. After the event, he will randomly draw two eligible candidates to win a USD$15 Steam game of their choice.
- The game is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
- Must have at least 24 player spawns. Distribution between T and CT doesn't matter.
- No fullbright maps. They force clients to turn on fullbright, and clients can't turn it off easily since mat_fullbright is a cheat command.
- You are free to use vscript however you like.
- The server will be configured to the "custom" gamemode, so your map can have a custom config.
- Make however many maps you like. Several people have submitted 5+ of their maps for a single event in the past.
- If there are any other special arrangements you want to make, contact me. Server plugins are not an option.
- For custom sounds to play you need to pack them into your .bsp file. VIDE is probably the easiest way to do this at the moment.
Publish your maps on the Workshop (using the command 'workshop_publish' ingame), and send me links to them with a PM here or on Steam. I will add them to the map pack which is packaged as a Steam Workshop collection that you can subscribe to here or (link opens in Steam) here. You will need to resubscribe to download new additions to the collection, but there will be a reminder to do so before the event.
Also, there's nothing stopping you from checking out the maps ahead of time, but experiencing them for the first time as a group is a part of the fun, so please refrain.
