A very simple but perhaps fun new ZF map made by yours truly.

Basically it's a square office floor, and the Blue team spawns in the middle.

I created three camping spots for the red team to try and survive in. (The toilets, the elevators and the Computer room)

cube map kinda annoying process but easy

first load map

in console type

then type
mat_bumpmap 0
then disconnect from map
mat_bumpmap 1
run map
mat_bumpmap 0
mat_bumpmap 1


thats to get every last reflection perfect, if you dont do it that many times youll still get some purple in relfections

and about the doors you probably didnt set it to return to close position, and doors usualy a bad idea for zombies best not to give any greifing chance to players otherwise its more work for you in the end wanring kicking banning them

also some of those models dont look like tf2 library, other models will show up for you if you have all models selected in the model viewer, and if other players dont have those games installed they will get the ERROR model, unless you packed the models in after compiling

Thanks brownie.

It looks better now, with the spooky lighting and all.
It's pretty dark though. Like labs CP 4 dark.

that's wierd, It works fine for me. I'll have to run it on the server myself.
SandvichSpy wrote: - spawn camping the zombie spawn in the middle is an issue
I added a nobuild zone to prevent sentries already. I tried to add doors but they never closed so that sucked. well yeah that sucks I'll make a few adjustments in that case.
is ti really that abd though?
SandvichSpy wrote: - when a red player is killed they don't always get auto put on blu team
I thought the mod on the server was supposed to regulate that. D:
how the hell am I supposed to do that?

also, theyre not always auto put on BLU? does that mean it happens sometimes? :S
stuff is wierd.

im assuming you forgot to add the nessecary entities to make game play work.

start disbled: no
time length: 240 (or how ever long u want it its in seconds)
max time length: 0 (unless your adding time to the clock on special event)
start paused: no
setup timer length: 35 (change to whatever u want)
reset time on round restart: no
use countdown sounds: yes
show hud timer: yes
count direction: down

team: red
force map reset: yes
switch team on map win: no

that should fix the issues, you might need filter_activator_tfteam. depending if have special places you dont want survivors and zombies getting places.

What's New:
-Added adequate health and ammo packs in the conference room
-Made the Zombie spawn even less spawncampable
-Made the Zombies unable to move to the survivor areas untill setup time ends
-Fixed a few props
-Fixed a few lighting issues
-Expanded the toilet room so survivors can hide behind the toilet stalls
-Fixed a misplaced texture


As far as I'm concerned this is the last update I'll make. At least in a while. I'm working on a new ZF map.
So ahm. Could you please upload the map to the server for me? I really want to play on it now. much oblidged.
