    The new maps added are good.
    Even tho ze_frostdrake_tower_v1 is my favourite map and it's popular I suggest to remove it. Why?
    Because it's a large map and requires a lot of defense and teamwork that is still missing in our server. (also not suitable for 32)

    That's my oppinion.

    I like what you have done with the clean up and look forward to playing the new maps!

    As I looked through the map pool and the list of the new maps I found two maps that almost looked identical. Is there any difference between ze_echo_boatescape_extended (already in map pool) and ze_boatescape_extendido_p4 (to be added), they seem almost identical too me?

    As for more map suggestions, I found a map that seems decent, each round is estimated to take 6-7 minutes, I tried it in-game, not too hard and all was working for me. ze_great_crate_escape_v5
    Download: ze_great_crate_escape_v5 (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive > Maps > Zombie Escape) - GAMEBANANA

    There was this map in the Lord of the Rings-series called "Minas Tirith", however I am not sure that it is compatible with CS:GO.
    I found this video on YouTube stating that it is indeed working https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1BOZPXJyfM. There is actually a "wiki"-article about it Ze LOTR Minas Tirith - Zombie Escape Wiki, stating that there only seems to be unofficial ports as seen in spoiler below.
    It is currently unknown if an updated or ported version will appear in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive by Hannibal himself, however ported and playable versions of Minas Tirith have already surfaced on CS: GO.
    I have unfortunately not been able to find download link for this so to say ported version. This was one of the best CS:Source maps which included many stages, progressing from the Osgiliath (pre-base) to inside the actual Minas Tirith keep and up to the top. (All stages are not shown in the video I linked above).

    Edit: I would also say that I agree with Snickers above on the fact that ze_frostdrake_tower_v1 is a too big map to play. The fact is that the whole map is one single stage (30 minutes or so to complete), meaning that if humans die 30 minutes more is need from the start to the end which is too much IMO.

    Edit2: Will ze_atix_helicoper_(some version) be added to the map pool? It is not possible to nominate it from in-game but if I remember correctly, this map is still on the server sometimes.

    Well, not that big of a difference, but still a small one.
    Also removed frostdrake tower, mainly because it's unsuitable for 32 slots.

    Although I like most of the atix maps, I will not re-add any of them, as they regularily caused the server to drop 60-80% of its players.

    Lastly, great escape also won't be added, as it has a quite low rating on GB (mostly indicating issues with the maps).

    PS: If you find minas, please make a suggestion thread so I can add it too.

    Maps have been updated/removed/added.
    Did not add: skyscraper (reported issues), skyrim (more of an event map, really big)

    The map ze_kraznov_poopata_go is a "dead end" map. It is not possible to get past first stage due to missing in-game special weapon. The missing item is supposed to be used as a "basketball" (funny as it sounds) you have to drop the basketball over as basket hoop. The missing weapons is a server or mod issue (weapons exist on singleplayer). I also wanted to report again that server is not printing any map-messages which is unfortunate :/.

    Removed poopata, as I can't download the required assets anywhere.
    Moreover, map messages should have been fixed (each CS:GO update overwrites a certain config file, which tells what kind of commands a map is allowed to execute).

    Server was running ze_games_v2_1 today somewhere around 20.30-21.00 (Central European Time) when server all of a sudden stopped working and everyone got disconnected, e.g. server crashed. I am not sure if it was the map that caused the server to crash or if it was caused by something else but it might be worth investigating :).

    Wasn't the map, was me updating SM while the server was running.

    Another idea:
    - Add ze_destruction_of_exorath
    - Replace dangerous waters with a festive one
