FY_CRANE - Map inspired by Call of Duty 4 Shipment

FY_CRANE is a map set in an abandoned small base,filled with trees,grass,bushes and ivy on the walls.The map has a lot colors,that are not strong on the eyes,and still let the player make a difference between the enemy and the enviroment.
When it comes to optimisation,I’m not the best one to do it,but I wil try and fix it and make it better in the next build of the map.The main problem is that the center of the map is made out of props,props,and nothing but props,and that really does put some pressure on your PC,but I will do my best to optimise it.


And here are some screenshots:

As always,I welcome criticism on my work,and feel free to write your suggestions and feedback

The map can be downloaded here:

Looks very well done ! Downloading xD

You could place brushes inside of props to cull visibility and improve optimisation.

I was thinking about that,but i didn’t know if that would work,do i put a textured brush maybe a texture from tools,when it comes to optimisation i’m really a noob.

the wiki will give you a good start. Also take a look at occluders since if the middle is mostly model based you may want to use them. If possible thin walls completely textured nodraw will be invisible but if places correctly will improve performance by leaps and bounds.

Always helpful too:

The next release will be more optimised.

Thank you Ereunity,I’ve placed blocks inside the models,gained some fps from that :slight_smile:

Loving those shadows, really brings the map alive. Will be downloading this when I get home.

-snip- i was confused about the maps thanks for clarifieng guys.

What on earth are you talking about?!

Operation Payback isn’t a paid map pack, you silly cracker.

You only pay to play the maps on official valve servers. you can still play for free on community servers. and most if not all the money generated goes straight to mapmakers. So you are supporting people who took their time to make awesome maps. :smiley:

Not to mention you can hitch a ride on someone else who has the pass.

Looks really nice, I will have to give this a try! It makes me want to make some CoD 4 themed maps…

The map has been updated,new video shows the changed map layout.Hope you enjoy.

FPS should be a little bit better*

And ofc the map is in the workshop.
