Yeah, nice map
The thing is, looks very different from the official SG maps, you know why? Because the terrain is flat. Take El_Paso, Farm and Coyote_Bluff for example, all of them have several terrain levels, and thats what makes the gameplay interesting. i dont really know how hard it is to do it when building a new map, but you should consider that. Anyway, your map looks nice, the buildings are really cool! :D

Lol, I played my map with 15 players (14 bots and me) and FPS was 10 :D
(I have to caulk many brushes.)
I have lots of duplicate and degenerate planes brushes, how i fix them? And what means "BOGUS 84 leafs filled"?

I made some cliffs behind jail and sheriff's office..
I will try play with easygen.. :)

Do you guys want that I make this br version too? I think it's not good for br.
I'll continue mapping now :D

Try it as both, the worst that can happen is that you decide that it is not a good BR map. Its fairly easy to convert a working DM/TDM map into a BR map. Just rename it as br_mapname.map and add an escape point.

Having a br and a dm version increases the chances of people playing your map. (some like DM, some like BR, some like both)

I'd agree that it's worth a quick try.
Ultimately, you'll have to judge for yourself if it's a worthy br design or not. For instance, I later released br modes for both of my dm maps... which didn't turn out to be popular. br_CoyoteBluff gets played once in a great while & br_HangemHigh almost never. They just weren't designed for good br gameplay from the start. If I had it to do all over again I would have saved myself the trouble & left br out for them.

Speaking for me, probably a better idea to design a decent br map & then add dm if I want to... rather than the other way around. I lost many hours trying to "force" decent br gameplay into these dm designed levels, without much success, & created bugs along the way that had to be fixed. Lesson learned.

@ Red: No, Hang'em High is a good BR map !!! It probably doesn't fit open internet server, but it is good for LAN game, 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2. I have had fun with it ;)
There is only one BR map playable 1 vs 1, so don't underestimate your work ;)

New version of Deadwood :)

I ask help from old mappers to increasing FPS, I have tried caulking (almost all) and farclipping some brushes.. FPS is still 10-30 with 10 bots.
I will put more sounds and money.
No br mode yet.

I hope you like it. :P

Just tested, and I see that you have some trouble with farclipping on some entity.
I guess your func_static doesn't have an origin brush.

Without that, the map origin (coordinate 0,0,0) is used for your func_static, so distance calculation will be wrong.
