    New map released on the testing server!
    This might be the last release before final, so please go nuts with the testing. ;)

    Will add the updates in this post soon.

    Okok, another version is on it's way, fixing the sc at stage 4, added a new secret, and added a bonus.

    What does this mean?

    You'll have to go in and delete the old surf_skyborn.bsp file, or you won't be able to join.
    It can be found in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\maps

    Reason? you can't overwrite files with the same name when joining a server.

    Why not just name it something like skyborn_final1, final2, etc.

    I wanted it to be surf_skyborn for the final version. Just a small & easy to remember kind of name.
    Also only 4 people have tested & downloaded that map version (i think), and it would be more difficult to make a lot of people go in and delete the old file, but we are lucky it's only the test server.

    Not a big fan of names with something after it.
    Ex: de_dust2, de_inferno etz. seems much more professional, than de_interno_pleb.

    Alright, the final version was now completed and sent to n0:name. It took me frickin 3 hours to compile, but i made it.

    Here are a few updates (along with some missing ones from past updates)
    [​IMG]

    Added a third pillar at stage 1, and moved the platform a little bit further back.
    Also added some details in between the pillars.

    [​IMG]

    Another view. Also, requested by some of you, the glass now has a frame around it, adding a little to the details.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Added arrows indicating where to go, to make it easier to figure out.

    [​IMG]

    Added a rotating box at stage 3. Because it's cool. Also it can stop you if you hit it.

    [​IMG]

    Added some details in the box at stage 4. Also moved the smaller middle ramp, to give a more accurate surf to the next ramp, when on the move.

    [​IMG]

    Added a bhop bonus stage. Not really much to say, it's easy, and it takes speed to be able to complete it.


    Other stuff:
    * Map has been fully HDR compiled, meaning lights has been changed a lot. Now the sun gives a more natural feeling, and not giving the ramps a crazy glow.
    * I have optimized it. Unseen textures has be removed. This will help the map run more smoothly for less badass computers.
    * I added a new secret and removed the old one.
    * Fixed a shortcut on stage 4.

    - File size has increased a little.

    Thanks for reading.

    Thats a secret. The new one is much easier to find though.

    New & final update has been added.
    - Sorry, i removed the bonus, it's almost impossible to finish, the distance between the platforms are way too far.

    As requested by Koga, this map is now considered complete and has been installed on all our servers.
