=========

+ Fixed skybox in the night version
- Removed table between fallen ceda trailer and airplane
+ added climbable ladder for both survivors and zombies on the fallen ceda trailer (so players can get out)

09/16/12
=========

+ Added night version
+ Added credits file
+ fixed a small thing in the navigation
+ edited some other small stuff

09/13/12
=========

Added the .vpk file.

============
there is a fully explaining credit file in the .vpk file. (as of the first update)
here is a shortened version.

Credits: Valve made the most textures , Rev_deaddiet edited and made some and TopHattWaffle
made the ice texture.
============
Known bugs:
.50Cal turns invisible when aiming up
FIX: no fix available atm.
when a snow storm starts , or snow storm is busy (and fog is close) and then the game end , then the next round the fog keeps on being close.
FIX: reset the fog when a new round starts

if you are playing and a bot gets stuck or won't move away, please take a screenshot and show me it (you can contact my steam account trough my account on this site) and i fix it in the next upcoming update.

I downloaded this map installed it correctly and entered the code to play it after about halfway of it loading it crashes and says "exceeded limit of number of vpk files supported" this is the only add-on i have installed at the moment is there any solution that works?

I have no idea , but I also found that problem when trying to launch addon maps from console. (it was to test one of my survival maps in campaign or other gamemode)

try "map survival_revmap0001deaddiet survival"
see if that works (I think it should)

This isn't a snow storm :/

Need someone to edit the particles with the editor and change it to an actual snowstorm :(

Pros:

• Night and Day Map
• Pretty Good Arctic Environment
• The Snow Storm [...]
• Night Environment feels Tense
• Ice Pond
• Frosty HUD

Cons:

• Very Tiresome and Boring

Conclusion:

Fairly enjoyable survival map that slowly becomes disinteresting.

I love this map
If it didn't have the overlay i swear i could perfectly use it for previews of skins

you can disable the overlay , but you will have to start the map from console and activate cheats.
in console , type "map survival_revmap0001deaddiet" or if you want the night version then type "map survival_revmap0001deaddiet2"
simply type in console "r_screenoverlay nothing" and it should dissapear after you activated cheats on the map.
