Tweaks
  • Reworked the announcer countdown to work entirely client side this should eliminate any stammers and synchronise it better with the end of the round.
  • Re-oriented the dropzones on the bridge in csm_trench and added some small aesthetic details.
  • Added more details to distinguish the sides of the marketplace in ex_echange and moved the marketplace objectives closer to their dropzones.

Mid-December Map Patch

This week's release is a map patch for version 9.21, the third release candidate.  This patch includes new versions of csm_trench and ex_exchange.  



Mid-December Maps Patch ( 34mb )

This patch requires version 9.21 AKA Release Candidate 3.

Install the Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer
  • Navigate to the "Tools" section on your Steam games "Library"
  • Install the "Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer"
  • Run the Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer at least once.
  • You can exit once the menu has finished loading.

Install the map patch
  • Download the patch.
  • Find your Sourcemods folder (usualy c:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Sourcemods\).
  • Extract the contents of the zip file into your Sourcemods folder (this will overwrite the updated maps).

Tweaks
  • Added team specific triggers to the end bunker doors in csm_trench and changed the door colours to clue newly spawned players as to where they exit to.
  • Extended the marketplace in ex_exchange (to make it harder to cap both sides in a short time).
  • Gave the loyalist spawn area in ex_exchange the same connectivity as it's chaos counterpart to make it more defensible.  Also removed some particularly camping sandbags.
  • Moved the first objective for each team in ex_exchange closer to their spawn rooms to make them more defensible.

Balance
  • Nerfed Knife damage from 28 to 22 (Only on ChromeAngel's server).

Future Plans
Providing no new issues are found in version 9.21, a long-term, stable, version will be released in late-December.  I plan to discuss with the EX community scheduling future event, so that the mod does no die completely with this release.
