Really great news! I hope that the new levels in ZPS will be nice (they are for everyone, aren't they?).

I might give this a shot. Two months, and I finished my last final yesterday so I'm home free for that entire time...

hmm.. maybe a warehouse, where survivors have barricaded themselves, and zombies are breaking through the barricades.
Survivors must hold on for few minutes (lets say 1,5/2 minutes), before chopper arrives on roof, and remains of survivors can evacuate...

Damn, i could give a try.

I have already a base for map.

Actually you misread that. We *are* using the Orange Box SDK in the next release, so Orange Box content (such as new lighting) is preferred!

:O Great prices!! But I don't know mapping, what a pity xD.

People, u don't need the orange box, just download the Spource SDK Base-Orange Box from Steam tools!
