It's not that hard, it's right next to ct spawn. It looks really nice actually (compared to other sewers in cs maps). It reminds me of the sewers in the russian campain of cod. If I remember right it leads into a room full of computer servers or something. you have to jump and crouch to get up.

The sewer system was cut in cs_miami in CSX. We did this for two reasons:

1) the level was well over the memory constraints for xbox. We removed all the old scrolling UV coordinate water textures and replaced them with animated pixel shaders (see aztec etc). Removing the animated water pixel shaders on cs_miami helped the memory footprint

2) more importantly, the water section of the level didn't enhance the gameplay (usability testers didn't like the section and it was never used by either side) so the simplification was made to better tune the performance of the map.

It is a multiplayer map, not a mission. It is in the cstrike_trs\maps folder.

Looking at the original level once I completed it, and the version that was released on XBox, just makes me wish whoever touched it last, would have did a more quality and professional job, and not have made all the unnecessary changes. For one, deleting a picture of me and my daughter in the glass cabinets, and replacing them with trees. I'm sure in the future there will be comparison screenshots of the varying qualities.

you had a picture of your daughter and yourself in a glass cabinet and are complaining about someone else not being professional?

That really sucks you got your picture taken out. That would piss me off. and your daughter too! Can you imagine telling her, "you are in a video game that's been played by thousands of people".

or tell her that thousands upon thousands of nerds will see her constantly. Who knows some suck pedos will prob see it too.
Imagine some greasy 40+ pedo playing cz and then seeing your daughter? Would freak thge [censored] out of me. Personally The best easter eggs are ones people would like never find, or are subtle, if you shaped the whole level like her face, that would be cool

Actually I think this was a legal issue; I remember that on cs_miami (and I think a couple other levels -- fastline at least, maybe more) MS legal found some "objectionable" content -- movie posters that were either composites of other images or bore enough similarity that MS legal raised the question. I remember in Dallas when Wyeth did most of those pics, he did a pretty thorough job of trying to use non-copyrighted images for the composites, and I fought to keep those in the levels (fastline and miami) when I was in Redmond.

I think in the end, the requirement to research the images went to valve and they essentially said "pull everything we're not sure about" as the quick fix (they did the same thing with the weapon names). So I guess Killtron's desk picture went away, along with the movie posters outside the theatre (replaced with the HL2 movie stuff) and some of the pics in fastline at the same time.

Sorry man, I didn't do it :-(
