There seems to be no problem with size+uncompressed files,
but I may be fabricating a memory with CSS+>50MB+bz2 not working…
Unless something has hanged very recently, they should.
CS:S does not have any limit, and you can just .bz2 everything, if you prefer.
CS:GO however made the limit of 150 MB several years ago, the 150 MB is the original map file size.
E.g. in \Steam\SteamApps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\maps\
, I have the following examples:
surf_happyhands_test.bsp - 141 MB (147.988.480 byte)
surf_kz_mix_journeys.bsp - 119 MB (125.259.776 byte)
Since the original .BSP's here are below 150 MB, go ahead and .bz2 them, and save some bandwidth, if you like.
However, I do also have:
de_mocha.bsp - 729 MB (765.059.072 byte)
Since the the original .BSP here, for de_mocha.bsp
, is over 150 MB, you cannot bz2 compress this map.
That 150 MB limitation has so far only been specific to CS:GO.
