Yea the streets do get a bit boring. But I'm adding do it right now. Did you find the two secrets in the map?

two secrets?! no i didnt :-| usually i find that kinda stuff, im one of those guys who notices the little things.

and dont get me wrong, i like the streets, just needs a bit more added to it. and a few more zombie volumes.

Well I only told 3 people and the message wouldn't have gotten very far, hint:

1. Check near the trader in the cellar, for a box.
2. Look in one of the garages.

Very nice map! Keep going!

btw, I found your two "secret", but could there be any chance that the "key" move around the map so it's not at the same place everytime? Pretty easy to get it on the first wave then sell what's in the "box" and have full cash... Or make what's in the "box" change everytime...

Nice one, spread the word too please, to anyone who's never played the map before or someone who has and enjoyed it.

I would just like to say thanks to everyone who has tested the latest beta version. And please do report and bugs so I can fix them early on.

Love this map, great to see how much you improve it with each update. The only issue with beta 3 that i have encountered is that while in the new garage area, zeds will spawn almost right on top of you. I tend to get zeds spawning on both sides and then killing me within 3 seconds.

Playing on normal and hard, and they spawn with all the cars in front of the trader in that area. Like you will be looking at the cars, and they drop from a bit above the floor right in front of you.

If you crouch while opening this door you can get on top of it while it is open.

My own personal hell
My system has very repectable power (I can play l4d, kf, and really anything short of Chysis at 1650 by 1080 at 60+ fps) but I have yet to find a map that hurts my systems performance like yours. Although most of the level is ok, when I go to the edge of the long street next to the winchester and turn around my frame rate drops to about 40 (from 140) even when no zeds are visible.

I'm not sure that this falls under copyright infringement (Shawn of the Dead) but I wonder if this will be accepted into the contest.

Thanks for that bug, I forgot you could crouch, I never do it.

So Akame, you say it hurts your system? Dropping to 40 fps??? Is 40 fps not playable? It would be a dream if my computer could achieve an average of 40 fps in killing floor. But I'll do my best to optimize it further.

As for copyright infringmenet, if I changed the name to Shawn of the dead, it would be fine.

@chewmyheadoff
My comment about the low frame rate was in reference to the stress it put on my machine. I have a friend who has a really old computer that can hardly play the official maps. Being aware that there are people who might not be able to play this map with acceptable frame rates is always something to take seriously, although it may or may not be easily fixable.

I know that the areas that are in shaun of the dead are real places and are exempt from copyright, but what about the winchester?

Yea I know, was being sarcastic my computer is pretty old too, and I get average of 30fps in that area. I'v tried making it run better, but we'll have to see when it is released to everyone.

Thanks gusone, I might use "Sawn of the dead" and as for Winchester, I don't know if the actual pub is copyrighted, or is it just gun?

Well when ever I hear Winchester I am reminded not of the movie but of the Winchester Club from 20 years earlier where Arther Daley used to frequent after a day's shady dealings. No copyright on the name of boozers as far as I am concerned.
