Block Maker Blocks img source: fpsbanana
Hello everyone. I am writting about one of most skillfull and enjoyable mod for Counter Strike 1.6 called Hide'n'Seek from Exolent.
What is Hide'n'Seek about?
- This is a Counter-Strike 1.6 mod where the hiders (Terrorists) must hide from the seekers (Counter-Terrorists) until the round ends.
- The teams will swap when the Counter-Terrorists win, or when X rounds have ended (cvar to change).
- The hiders are equipped with a broken, invisible knife (cvar), an HE grenade (cvar), two flashbangs (cvar), and a smokegrenade (cvar).
- The seekers are equipped with a knife (cvars for grenades).
- Both teams are given 100 armor (cvars per team).

You also need to download the Block Maker. Block Maker is a plug-in for Counter Strike. Block Maker is kind of some map creator, but you are building right in Counter Strike maps (de_dust2, de_inferno, de_nuke, de_aztec, etc...)
What is Block Maker about?
- You have to put blocks into map in orther, where you can jump bunny hop jump.
List of block classes with description:
- Platform (A platform you can stand on)
- Bunnyhop (A platform that disappears for a short period of time after touching it)

Watch video >>>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYAne3cnGx0&feature=related<<<, how can you build map with block maker.Player succesfully pass it with bunny hop jump style.
What is Bunny Hop?
Bunny Hop is a style of movement, when you are supposed to jump like bunny without loosing your movement speed. Bunny hop jump is kind of Counter Strike bug, but huge community of Counter Strike fans using this style of movement for a years now. Trick is, that you need to strafe and jump. You need to synchronize these two aspect for using bunny hop jump. It is all about practise.
On this Bunny hop Guide >>>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUtxsfuymxc<<< , you can see, how bunny hop jump looks like.
The last thing what you need to download and istall is Frost Nades plug-in from XxAvalancexX for turning Smoke Grenades into the Freez Grenades. You can see demonstration on this video >>>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MB8W3kuGOw<<<.
So now we have Hide'n'Seek plug-in from "Exolent", Block Maker plug-in from "Necro", and Frost Nades plug-in from "XxAvalancexX". We already know how to jump in Bunny hop style.
From this moment, you are ready to go on Hide'n'Seek servers to demostrate your skills. If you are looking for some servers, go search on google or game-monitor sites, when you easily type HNS server. There will be definitely multiple serveres. There will be different servers with different blocks, style of gamin' and so, but do not be afraid, you will find the one server with true, oldschool bunny hop blocks which I am talking about in this article.
You will see many and thousands different mods and plug-ins based on these simple mods from Exolent, Necro and XxAvalancexX, but they are all the same in some way. This mod is really full of skill and joy, but it tooks some time to learn bunny hopping like a proffesional. If you are bored by shooting each other, this may be for you. So do not be afraid, and go to try.
So good luck and do not forget to Have fun : )
