    map mapnamehere

    if they dont show in the auto-fill as you type it, that means you put the map in the wrong spot.


    the later levels in the series are buggy, you can walk right off the map into blank space in a few spots. Will be good when its finished.

    O.K. I just can't wait to get my hands on the L4D SDK so I can start my Circle of Death map series.

    dont forget to upload it... and dont forget to make a Vs mode variant :)

    man, there is NOTHING more satisfying than killing survivors at a lan and listening to them scream.

    the game is MP based. it entirely depends on who you're playing with.

    if you dont have a reliable group of friends to play with, or you're a lone wolf type - this game is not for you

    Just picture a circular dungeon style chamber with 6 dead end pathways along with 1 way entrance into the circle of death and one 1 way exit into the Safe Room for a total of 8 pathways when you situate yourself in the middle.

    After a long tiresome battle to get to the next Safe Room you end up in this circle of death. Now you tell me what and how many of those what’s will come out of those so called 6 dead end pathways :D
    If you ever liked Half-Life 2 then L4D is your game. Both MP and SP is extremely fun. I like the fact each and everytime you play the same level it changes on you.

    make sure those dead ends contain weapons, ammo, and grenades (in various amounts/types per pathway). If you want to make things complicated, make it two story in places, so people have to get up ladders/ramps to even know if its a dead end or not :)

    it will be free on PC. whether or not its free on console (360, PS3?) depends on the console makers.

    Great ideas, I did already plan on having loads of ammo and pipe bombs along with moletals but the weapons, ladders/ramps are a good idea.

    I should base it in a mid even time theme depending on how integrated the SDK will be. Will the SDK give us complete control? Right now I do not know.

    thanks for helping me out with installation of these new maps...whoever helped me out itt :)

    yeah, looks very promising. i've only played a few. i was very impressed with the Prisonyard one. lots of potential there

    so does Valve have to offer these for multiplayer? or they have to enable SDK or w/e its called? how exactly does this work and will we get complete scenarios like we have now? or just little mini games, so to speak?

    none of those maps are from valve. they will never be included with the game. They are simply maps that other people have made, using the half life 2 SDK.

    Once the L4D SDK is released, those maps will be better quality/finished - but everyone you play with is going to need to download them, as the game doesnt seem to support auto downloading of maps.

    Wha! Crysis is the best looking game ever! Did you max out the Graphics? To say Crysis doesn't look that good is blasphemous. Unless your saying Crysis doesn't look that good compared to real life.

    Crysis doesn't look that great honestly. Stalker Clear Sky has better lighting and Left 4 Dead just looks better while maintaining 100+ FPS. Crysis is so unoptimized it's not even funny anymore.

    Crysis is still probably the best looking game. Stalker clear sky comes close, I ran it in dx10.1 maxed out totally and it was the worst fps I've ever seen.

    Clear Sky really doesn't look that great... Textures are horrible compared to Crysis. And if you really thing about it, considering all that Crysis does and offers visually, its preatty well optimized to deliver what it does and the frames it does.

    Not really. Look at FarCry2. I get 50+ fps on it(too bad the game itself sucks balls) and it looks better than crysis. Crytek is just lazy.

    Yeah but Far Cry 2 lacks a few thing that Crysis offered. Not saying it was the as optimized as it could be but for its first revision it was well enough. Thus the release of the game in the first place.

    FarCry 2 does not look better than Crysis. You're lying to yourself.

    Crysis is a shit game but graphically it remains king.

    I'm just waiting for another game to come out to crunch all hardware like Crysis does.
