Hello mate,

First feedback:

Try to avoid those spots and please remove it (first image) or make them so that you can cross it without crouching (screen 2) as it causes lags on servers if camperz claim the same space:

This spot might cause trouble as it offers a lot of space for many camperz and you even added an anti edge feature. Well @Dhoudz gonna eat them all but he isnt always there ;)

(I reviewn it on my own maybe zombiez can jump up from the sides if they teamwork, if so please ignore my worries)

I would like to have those crouching zones fixed/removed before adding it to the server, they aint necessary (at least I assume so) and they cause lags unfortunately.

As for the place to put the zombies on the shoulders, that was originally my idea. That's why I set aside so much space for people. As for the places where you need to squat, I’ll fix it! Thanks for your feedback!

zm_RetroZombieWave_V2


After a lot of testing, as well as listening to the players, I present to you an updated version!

1712519509563.png

The first floor has a purple style, the second floor has a yellow style. This is done in order to understand what floor you are on.

The map itself became higher, the ceilings were increased. The map also became more illuminated

2 not the best camper positions have been removed

Now, in order to go to the teleport, you need to press buttons that last for 15 seconds. You will also receive a notification in the chat whether the teleport is active or not.

Changed staircase

I would also like to inform you that I have my own “logo”. This is the first map I added it to!


Thanks to everyone for the tests and criticism, I hope you like this version of the map more!

For the teleporter I think you should put it back to being open rather than having the buttons and chat messages. Don't think there would be a problem if the teleporter was open, but the button and chat messages seem like they would be annoying. I'm not sure if you changed this based on feedback that I'm not aware of, but I think it was better before

Some people were unhappy with the previous version of the teleport, after which I came to this decision. Perhaps we should test this version of the map more times to sum up the results
 
Do you know if the chat message is client side or server side? As in if I push the button am I the only one that sees the message, or is it sent for the whole server? If it is server side and everyone will see the message every time, all the time, I'm not going to add that
 
I heard you. In this case, I will make another notification about the opening of the teleport, for example, I will put a door that will open when you press a button. This is how we get rid of chat messages

Good compromise 👍

I updated the teleport opening notification system. Now, if the teleport is closed, it will be blocked by a red wall. The slab on the floor indicates whether the teleport is activated on another floor. If the light is red, it means that no one has activated the teleport on the other floor, and no one can get to you. If the plate is green, this means that they can come to you from another floor.

I also moved the teleport activation button lower. This will help the zombies activate the teleport

This buy zone works fine when you spawn in,but you cannot buy anything after mother zombie spawn.

Could be an issue in all buy zones as I didn't test them all,only noticed it on this one.

Эта зона покупки работает нормально, когда вы появляетесь в ней, но вы не можете ничего купить после появления матери-зомби.

Проблема может быть во всех зонах покупки, так как я не проверял их все, заметил это только в этой.

Hmm, I don’t even suspect what this might be connected with. I did not perform any actions with the purchase zone. It happens to me that when you move and simultaneously open the purchase zone, your character “flies” out of the purchase zone, while the purchase menu remains on the screen, but you cannot buy anything. This happens on all maps, maybe the same thing happens to you?

Other players reported this issue to me.Then I went ahead and tried and I still couldn't buy anything,moving or standing still,I dont know why that happens..

I'll review the buy zone in the editor. Perhaps I’ll make it wider and higher, I’ll see if deactivation conditions are imposed on it... If the problem is not solved, then it seems the map cannot be fixed

I understood why this happens. Since after the appearance of Zombie Mother all Terrorists move to the CT team, the terrorist store no longer works for them. This idea came to me after I played with bots on version 1. After I became CT, the terrorist store no longer opened. Perhaps this is the problem!
 
So was this a problem you could fix? It isn't a problem on other maps as far as I know...
 
I always add 2 buyzones to every spawnpoint, one for Ct's and one for T's. This will make sure you dont have any problems with the buyzones.
