I've been working a lot more with de_Boston2. I would say it is 50% complete as far as guessing how far along it is done. For this version of the map I am trying to make it more custom...and a little more brighter color-wise. It won't use the dank HL2 bricks as much.

De_boston2 is going to take place more or less toward the Beacon Hill area in Boston. As with the other map, I will have to tool around with heavy "add-libbing" to make the map play well. The two bomb targets will be Fenway Park and the "Cheers" bar.

After play testing the layout SEVERAL times (Counting seconds to choke-points, etc...) I am convinced this map will run better on Pubs than the first one. A big plus is the height variation. You will be able to run on roof tops on certain sections of the map. There is also more areas to snipe...as well as areas to rush those snipers.

It will also play faster. I made sure it generally took 10 to 14 seconds to reach from A to B and visa versa.

This looks sweet man. I can't wait to play it. If you are ever looking for a server to test your map on let me know....I play on a custom map server called Zen Den. Let me know if you might want to test the beta and I will ask the Zen Den owner (DJ Noob) if he is interested. We play De_Boston there alot and the players really like it. Let us know! cool.gif http://the-zenden.com/

Hey! That sever is on my favs.

Yeah...I'm getting frustrated with how boston2 is coming out...so I'm setting it aside for a bit to let my mind do something else. I always work better working on few maps at a time.

Either way it is awesome news that you are making Boston2...you make really good custom maps.I for one really like De_Boston and look forward to seeing Boston 2 when it is finished.
