    vsh_arakawa

    Hi, this is a vsh_ version of arena_arakawa.
    It was necessery to edit it to match it with the Versus Saxton Hale mode.

    Godslayer57 gave me his permission to upload it here and I hope I met the conditions :)

    You don't have optimisation? Rofl, what are you talking about. You should always have optimisation methods in place when you reach beta. It'll take you 20 mins to throw in some areaportals and hints. Maybe a little longer to add fade distances to props.

    If you don't have time to optimize, it again rises question.

    Why didn't you just let godslayer do VSH port, or ask for his already optimized vmf?

    they're just being meanies because of how you tried to decompile and recompile for VSH without godslayer's permission. though optimization is pretty important......

    I love it when this happens. At least godlsayer gave you permission. Hardhat got converted without even asking me.

    Backlot got converted twice for vsh, and dm... without permission.

    Also, I'll be honest, I don't know why a new thread needed to be created for an existing map, you could've asked godslayer to include it in the original maps thread.


    Also, if you do not have optimization, your map will not be played. It will have poor framerate issues, and lower its popularity. This is turn will reflect on the original map, and its creator. Arakawa is a fine map, don't ruin it by not optimizeing.

    An unoptimised map, on a full server? On some computers, it WILL have issues.

    Fully detailed map with 3dskybox and a lot of other stuff, with custom Saxton Hale model and shitton of people shooting rockets at Hale + tons of engineers. All that without optimization.

    Call me mad, but if you are claiming there is no fps issues on the map, then you are lying, even some Valve's own arena maps have sometimes hard time to keep up good fps with all madness going on in vsh mode.

    Guess whose map didn't get decompiled without his permission.

    Oh wait, shit!

    Hate to bump this, and I figure that PM'ing godslayer this would be better, but this is the reason that people don't like decompiling maps. This link shows that you made Arakawa, not Godslayer. I know it;s the VSH version, but still, there is no mention of godslayer at all.

    I strongly suggest that you FIX IT. As you can see in the comments at the bottom, some people already have noted this. (Including myself)


    EDIT: Fixed the link

    rofl, steal his map w/o permission. he says it's okay to upload it, take all credit for the map. or they must have just assumed you made it....

    Doesn't matter. Still, it is something YOU should fix. You decompiled at first without permission, it is your responsibility as the map modifier to make sure proper credit is given to the original map maker.

    I also just want to make it clear that I don't intend to argue over this. I know how something like this feels, and as such, it just rubs me to wrong way when it happens and no one does anything about it.

    So please, fix it, or keep a better eye on the map.
