Dahshur City is a Bomb/Defuse scenario that focuses on quick rounds and fast-paced action. It uses the same art style and texture set as Dust and Dust2 and I believe that I achieved my objective of matching the visual quality of those maps.
Dahshur City (or just “Dahshur”, as it’s more commonly known) has a long history. It started as a Counter-Strike 1.6 map, created by another South African gamer: Neil Fouche aka “LAzor”. The map was so well-loved by South African gamers that the SAIX Games Service (SGS) hosted a 24/7 server for it. Since then, Dashsur has become somewhat of a tradition amongst South African Counter-Strike players.
When Counter-Strike: Source was released, many gamers wanted to see their old favourite ported over to the new engine. Two other mappers made their attempts at recreating the classic but it was my version that was eventually chosen and it has enjoyed thousands of hours of usage on the SGS Dahshur server.
