BrutesMaps - Latest News on CS:GO Maps for 2012-2013
United States BrutesMaps 
Hey everyone, Colin "brute" Volrath from BrutesMaps here giving everyone a small update of my mapping involvement in Counter-Strike Global Offensive. With the latest release of CS:GO to the community I thought this would be a good time to inform everyone of the custom maps that will be heading your way in the coming months from me to you. "de_tuscan" will be the first map released to the CS:GO community with an aimed first BETA release of the map slated for late September 2012. As the map progresses I will be releasing the latest pictures of the map on my Facebook wall and on for everyone to enjoy. The end of 2012 and 2013 are going to be a busy and exciting time for the CS community and I plan to be a big part of it with at least 5-6 CS:GO maps already commissioned and lined up for the next 12 months. Some of these maps will be ports of maps I've already created in the past (de_forge, de_russka, etc) and some will be brand new maps to the community. Stay tuned for more news as the next few months should be exciting for everyone.

well just a thought but I've always been thinking if cs_ maps like assault could be transformed into de_ maps.. not that difficult to do I think? just a number of paths to bombsites with ct's having a slight time advantage to get on em etc..

cbble for cs:go!
2012-08-24 17:45
can't wait for tuscan
2012-08-24 17:47
What about de_mirage? Btw. de_forge isn't good, do de_cblle but smaller and more competetive.
2012-08-24 17:51
de_forge is exactly what you're talking about. it's a smaller version of cbble, more competitive and faster paced.
2012-08-24 17:53
It's still too big in a distance, and I prefer more original textures.

De_forge is smaller then cbble and the textures is better to an newer game.

I hope, I really, I really hope that you're trying to make the maps as clean as possible, without those tons of useless stuff and little annoying details all over them. I can't stand the default GO maps, I mean, look at de_dus2_se, those crates, those barrels, those cars, those 'houses'... it's annoying, it's exactly what we don't need:
2012-08-24 18:43
#11 if you've seen the 2 maps i ended up doing for cs:s a few years back I followed the exact recipe you're looking for. i hated the useless ragdoll clutter in the cs:s maps and did not bring any of it into the maps i ported over into cs:s so no worries, there will be very little clutter in my maps unless it's actually a functional part of the map.
2012-08-24 18:47
THANK YOU!! By the way, you will just add more maps or you can 'replace' the default maps too, for competitive 5v5 playing? I mean, can you just edit the default versions of dust2, inferno, nuke and train to make it simple and clean? Like this:
2012-08-24 19:08
i mean it's possible yes. but i'd rather make new maps and port the work i've already done first. i don't have a problem porting those old maps over for the community but i prefer to leave my own stamp on the community with creative new work that is refreshing rather than just copying what has already been created. i think in time people will just play the maps released by cs:go and deal with them for at least the first year.

Imo you have good sense of what is good and what is bad in the maps and you should follow your own instinct but here's a thought: for the original maps you to succeed as your conversion on the competitive scene they should look somewhat similar to the original cs:go maps combined with the likes of 1.6 to attract all THREE scenes(cs:s, cs1.6 & new cs:go gamers). just like in the first csp_dust2 screenshot shown on #14.. A plant might be designed structualwise the same way it is on cs:go but the boxes arrangement on the actual bobmplant might be more like 1.6 if you get what I mean. And another thing I'd like to see especially are the usable paths for "trick" flashbangs to be invented like on de_tuscan there's those cusps up in the higher end of the buildings you can bounce the flashes back down and same thing on de_inferno 1.6 version those same things :) hope I brought up some more insight & thoughts for you :) If those new maps can be sorted out and VALVe/HPE fixes the sound issues(buggy distance of sounds, how long away from you can hear, jump sound though you are standing almost still[messes up with sneaking especially on top of de_nuke yellow hut and de_dust2 b window jump]) this game might just make it and be a really good game that even I (13y veteran from 1.6/older cs) would like to play sometimes.

oh and one more thing I'd like to add are the good and bad changes made in the maps of cs:go/cs:s.. not everything is bad, there are some clever hiding spots which can be utilized in various manners. One good example of this is de_nuke ramp room where there's this big (yellow, if I remember correctly) container you can hide behind at times which might take a terrorist by a surprise whilst rushing(atleast for a 1.6 player this might happen more often at the beginning.) and it really does not screw up the original gameplay that much.

yea, +1. This is the bigger minus (for me) in cs:go - too much distraction objects, too much spots, maps are like "you better have a good position than a good skill". Thats why I choose 1.6 many years ago.

de_tuscan <3
2012-08-24 18:55
clean maps? finally some good news :D keep up the good work, I really expect something great :)

i hope your team or if you make the maps alone,will make them as good as 1.6 are... if cs:go maps that will be played on competitive level will be without many details,just flat walls and stuff like that... will be really nice to play them,those cs:go maps,too many details Edit: I wish you or your team,best of luck,and the main thing,have fun while making them
2012-08-24 19:52
Awesome to hear you'll be doing maps, keep us updated! :)
2012-08-24 20:11
Please remake dust2, inf, nuke and train too. The game is good but the maps are REALLY terrible. You could be our saviour :D

All community is waiting for tuscan. Its priority number one atm. Hope you will find the way to save de_russka atmosphere with snow, dark brick walls and military details. Also it will be nice to use de_cbble design (castle and wine cellars etc) in new de_forge. And do not be afraid to add some details and garbage on maps (How its done on de_cache and valve de_mirage). imho
