ZM Maps are not one of the default maps of the game, which are not included in our CS 1.6 maps edition as well. However, due to their popularity, we wanted to make a full detailed paragraph about it.
This type of game maps is designed and made only for the popular game mode Zombie Plague. Since its first release, ZP mode has been rocking the Counter-Strike 1.6 game modes with the most played custom mode of the game.
Due to the changes made in the mode, it requires some custom and well-edited maps. The most obvious parts about these maps are the camping zones and tunnels where humans need to camp in order to defend themselves against the zombie team.
Even tho these maps are not within the default maps of the game, they are the most made and download type. In fact, Zombie Plague CS 1.6 Maps only have a huge number of maps itself, up to thousands!
How to create custom CS 1.6 Maps?
Creating Counter-Strike 1.6 maps is not that easy. In fact, it will require you some tech skills as well as your creativity. I’m sure that everyone wants to create his own map and implement his imagination and creativity into reality, but is it worth it?
The trust is, there are over 10k CS 1.6 maps as far as I know personally. So, if you want to create some map only to play in a cool map that you might like, it’s better to search for one.
Because, with such a huge number of options, finding good maps is never easier. But, if you want to make the game map just for fun, then you are good to go. After all, everyone wants to leave his own footprint in the game and make something on his own!
In order to create a Counter-Strike 1.6 map, you will be in need of 2 mainly things. First of all, the idea of the map itself. That includes the type of the map and how it will be played, etc…
Then you can proceed to create the map itself. For that, you will be in need for the Valve hammer software, which is the main map editing software for CS 1.6. The software is a little bit hard for using, but with some practices, everything will be fine!
So, make sure to browse multiple guides and wiki articles about the software before using it at all. With that, you will make sure to not spend hours of editing to create a total mess in the end.
The last thing to keep in mind, that you should be always testing! Counter-Strike 1.6 number of maps with bugs are growing up each while. After all, no one, even you, will be using a bugged map that will ruin the gameplay…
Just be careful of what you are creating and make sure that make only the quality maps. Because you can create thousands of maps for CS 1.6 and none will be used. But you can create a single quality map which will be used by thousands of players, take Dust2 as an example!
