Custom Maps = Laggy Server?

<div class="IPBDescription">cant figure out why this happens</div> As some of you may know I run a public server, and on a few occasions we have attempted to play custom maps. If you've ever played on the server, you know that its generally pretty fast and everyone gets pretty good pings, it rarely spikes and in general is a high quality server. Yet, as soon as I put a custom map on, the server starts lagging like nobodies business, even when there is noone downloading the map from the server. Why does this happen? I have noticed that some of the custom maps dont come with all the files needed(ambience files, overview.txt) Is this why it lags my server so hard, because the users dont have all the required files and the server is attempting to play them? I've created .res files for all the custom maps, with a link to the minimap.spr, but other than that most maps dont include the ambience files or overview.txt. Any ideas?
