Huge fan of your work. I just thought you should know that the 15-year-old mapping website TWHL hosted a recent competition entitled "Half-Life Re-imagined" wherein the competitors were tasked with recreating a favourite classic map from HL with a notable twist.
Almost across the board all entries were based on Crossfire (including my own) and it was so cool to see the love that the community still has for that map.
You created one of the most iconic deathmatch maps of all time, and approaching its 20-year anniversary people still adore it.
Hell yeah, Dario. Hell yeah.
Thanks so much for your time and for the countless hours of fragging,
Thanks for your kind words about Crossfire - that map was so much fun to develop and play! It was my first attempt at a team deathmatch map, when the game didn't organize people into teams, but if people wanted to play together to secure the bunker, they could.
I'm humbled and grateful that the map still gets attention and play some almost 20 years later!
I took a look at your re-imagining of Crossfire and it brought back some great memories! You kept faithful to the original feel of the map and it looks clean and well built, nice job!
Best of luck in all your mapping adventures going forward!

Were there really that many Crossfire-inspired maps?Well mine wasn't, and Jessies wasn't... But other than that off the top of my head I can't remember who else's wasn't!
But other than that off the top of my head I can't remember who else's wasn't!It seems that basing my remaster on a forgettable original map has made it also forgettable... Is that a point in my favour?
If you guys got 4 months then it's only fair that we do too
