This made me dizzy! Really messes with your perspective.

When I made a botfile for this, it was 12.3 MB (!) but they actually played decently for what the map was. There is a lightning clip that isn't reachable though :(
Took like 3-4 minutes to make it. I passed it along to Tig, but a .arena file would be nice for it too (why did I forget that AGAIN?!?!?!) EDIT: Thanks Tig for taking care of the .arena stuff.

wow a 'new' novelty included!
shame no real gameplay included.
unlike "short circuit" with its winding halls plus great gameplay. [bots please atleast]

thanks. I had a .arena in there at some point, but it wouldn't show up. Besides, what's the point of having it in the menu when you can't play it with bots? If all you want to do is look around, then isn't "map curvy" just as quick?

Pretty interesting map, not for playing but just the use of curves.
to Aardappel: Maps will show up in the menu when you don't have an aas file. All you need is an arena file and a levelshot.
to those complaining about gameplay: take a look at the frikkin' README! It clearly states this is an experiment, not a playable map.
When will people learn that readme's actually can be important?

Aardappel - sorry about that error, I was sure there where a few *solid* looking brushes in the hallways, my bad.

tig: it doesn't contain any non-square brushes, it's curves only (besides caulk).
niptlar/johnny: duh. it was meant as an experiment. critizing the gameplay is rather pointless. Me, I am suprised it even _works_.
blitzz/mrdo: it won't show up in the menu when there's no .aas, and I can't generate one because BSPC hangs on this map (it goes berzerk because of the many curves). This isn't my fault.

The LG clip intersects the walls, so it won't appear in the game. I can't really say that the Railgun is a useful weapon; I was really expecting a Grenade Launcher. Furthmore, I found myself getting _in the wall_, and while I never got stuck, I was a little annoyed whenever I got in there.
If issues like these were addressed, and if the level was more than just a figure eight, then it would have been much more memorable. As it stands, this map is strictly a concept demonstration.

Being sparkly-free isn't really an accomplishment when you're just joining various patch meshes.
Mildly interesting as a study in vertex-dragging but unplayable as a Q3 map... mappers might want to have a look, since it's a small download.

I'll try it when it shows up in the level select menu.

I'll try it if it's revised to include a bot file.
