title: "Welcome To My Deathtube"

description: Deathtube2 is an updated version of Deathtube,
The top platform has been extended, more point
lights have been added, moved top platform 50 healths
back from the edge, moved the top platform
info_player_deathmatch spawn points, moved the top
platform weapons, shotguns added to middle level,
the Skybox has been greatly enlarged, the portal
tube has been textured with blacksky texture and a
bot_roam entity has been placed on the launchramp to
the portal to attract the Bot's. A few extra detail
brushes were added as well. This in my opinion improves
the gameplay and makes the bot's more active.
Space map, fast paced action (keep your eye's in
the back of your head at all times) which makes for
some exciting matches especially one on one. Tourney
play is probably a little out of balance due to the
quad and bfg. So I have made quad last 20 seconds
and it alternate's with mega health, quad is on one
side and mega on the other. The BFG alternates with
red armour and red amour will spawn more frequently.
Rail is the dominate weapon in my opinion, so
rail-whores should pull off some spectacular mid-air
shots. "BFG", well for the newbies to at least have
a chance. Besides don't we just love the sound of
BFG blast's ripping past at close range :)
There is no BFG ammo so use it wisely.

how to play place Deathtube2.pk3 in your /baseq3 folder
start quake3 arena go to skirmish menu then
click through the map list until you see Deathtube.
Alternatively you can bring down the console
with the "Tilde" ~ key
type /map deathtube2
type /addbot <botname> <skill>
hit ~ (to clear the console)
Note: If the map does not start automatically after loading then make
sure you have the SV_PURE variable set to 0, "this however shouldn't be
necessary as the map is in .pk3 format".
base: From Scratch. The launch ramps are slightly altered ramps
from the q3dm17 sample map. So all credit for those goes
to ID Software.

other progs: bspc-gui version 0.05.
known bugs: The launch ramps on upper levels will sometimes send
players and bots up vertically, due to side rails.
How ever this only happens when not entering the ramps
squarely and only on the odd occassion. I have
intentionally not rectified this as I think it creates
more fun. With a little practice it can even be an advantage.
