So I have been increasingly spammed by Russian/Cyrillic looking communities on steam.

Turns out an old Jail Break map I a made became minorly popular, and I left my steam_id in the map as proof of authorship, which was a damn easy way for people to track you down.

Still, I can't say how happy it makes me to see people enjoying a map I made, there are lots of pictures on google, tonnes of stat trackers and even (terrible) videos on youtube of it.

The map is Jail_czone.

Edit: Someone even made it in minecraft!:

Google your maps!

Good idea, I will google all of those amazing maps I relea - Oh wait.

At least 'Half Life Houndeye Statue' returns my map halfway down the first page, that's good right?

It must be a nice feeling :)
Why not upload it to the vault?

I should, but there might be a slight influx of 14 year old's with terrible English.

Googling my only released playable map, cs_omega_assault for CS, only returns a bunch of other assault modifications that happen to be named the same. My TWHL entry is first on results page 2. It doesn't seem to appear anywhere else.

Wow. So I googled some of my maps and it turns out that some of my old CS maps made it in the list of some servers.
Also, this is incredible, but searching for my maps turned out a very old "portofolio"(of maps) site I tried to make but didn't complete.

This is the site. This is astonishing. I'm not saying I would rely on a free site builder to make sites, but it seems like this site can be trusted. I haven't logged in for 5 years there :.

My zm_assault_night2 was the top No1 map on IgroNET ZM.

thanks for this journal, it led me to a download link to a TWHL mod that TWHL didn't have a link for!

Oh cool, external hosting 404's is a rampant issue in TWHL's map vault :(

What mod might that be?
Commented 9 years ago2013-03-05 12:09:26 UTC Comment #46973
Downloaded for minecraft, now using it on my server with flan's mod. Great job on all versions to call.
