    ungh jagd was awful before and it will be awful again :( Too many maps just for public play, objective based maps will never take off in clan play imo. Dont get me wrong though, happy to see some more content, hopefully the update will fix the crouching hitboxes too. :)

    Looks good. Think I may have to purchase DOD:S now. I tried it a while back when it was free and loved it. :)

    I just wish valve would fix those god awful smg's, the spread of those things is beyond a joke, not a bit of wonder anytime someone kills you with one hes usually running at you holding down the mouse button. :rolleyes:

    Yep, I agree.

    I'd like to see a beach map. A Source version of Overlord or Omaha would be awesome.

    The last project on this subject that I thought looked good, was Waldo's Dod_Foxgreen map.

    However, after him moving away to a new job from the Dev team at Valve, it's kinda "died the death" and I haven't heard much from him on the issue.

    BRING BACK DOD HILL!!!!

    That map was fun as hell back in the day, was really sniper orientated but winning the map was very satisfying. :)

    Id also like to see a remake of CAEN without all the dod team added camping spots that slowed the map down and made ti boring as hell to play. Amazing how that map was considered the de_dust of dod and now its not even an official map due to them toolin around with it. :mad:

    Yep, defo agree with you there Gerard m8. That would be classic. :cool:

    There's a plethora of custom maps out there that work very well indeed, although the official maps just seem to have that extra "something".

    Our own [TFS]El Capitan has produced a really good custom map called Dod_Subterrainia:-

    http://www.tfs.shoebox.me.uk/index.php?topic=450.msg4249;topicseen#msg4249

    It's a bit of a change from the normal "town" maps, but we have taken it off the server rotation for now while El Cap works on the b3/b4 version and irons out a few rough edges.

    I've asked on our forums if DP can add it to our rotation.

    Think it will be well worth a play for a few days at least.

    Looking good, i always end up going back to dod, such a fun and well balanced game.
    Edit: Looking at those pictures mind the new gamemode looks suspiciously like the bomb cs gametype...

    gah another update for DOD:S
    its not as good as DOD was, the whole hitbox thing is a joke tbh,
    fix the bugs, release it at 50% of the price and you MAY get more people playing!

    Remake of caen would be nice. Beach maps are fun just if you are Americans and your getting it bad it can be annoying :(

    seg3, I also miss cherbourg had some great scraps on that map. Shame that DoD:S is a pale shadow of what DoD once was :(
