    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.

    Reviving this, as I'm making a few fixes to the map. Now is the time to let me know what you want changed.
    Here's a list with what I've done so far:
    • Map optimization
    • Texture adjustments
    • Fixed sun brightness
    • Updated glass texture on bonus
    • Added teleport from secret room to bonus
    • Fixed missing rotation on bonus spawn tele rings
    • Removed rotating box on stage 3
    • Changed arrow textures
    I'm not going to change or replace anything on the actual run itself, meaning all zones/times/runs can be ported over without a problem.
    Lastly, I'm adding credits in the map for the people who helps out on the map, and for every support on my patreon.
    These names will be placed in the secret room.
