This is the Counter-Strike bomb/defuse version of the classic HL DM map Rats3. Mini-terrorists must bomb a toy UFO in a kid's bedroom and their CT counterparts must stop them.

Version 2 release notes:

This version (de_rats3b) fixes a problem with the CT spawn points. I'd like

to thank Jason Deans and John McLoughlin for pointing out the bug to me.

I made this CS version of Rats3 after many, many requests. I think it's

obvious to anyone that this map is not well-suited to Counter-Strike but

if lots of people want to play it that way for a laugh who am I to say no?

Rats3 has higher r_speeds than official CS maps, and as-such should not

be run in software mode or on older machines.

The buttons and effects on the walkman in the cupboard get screwed-up in

Counter-Strike. As it's only there for decoration I decided to leave it

in as-is rather than take it out altogether.

Incidentally, I implemented the lightswitch in this map after many

requests from people. I've often heard it said that switchable lights

in maps lead to lower framerates but after making this map with and

without this feature I could see absolutely no difference in r_speeds

or framerate between the two versions.

NB: I was the author of all the Rats! maps, but the CS maps de_rats and

cs_rats2a were not released by me. These were conversions made by someone

else from ripped versions of the original maps.
