Description : My first Quake III map attempts to stay away
from the style of the standard maps and has
more of a Quake / Quake II feel to it. Iikka
"Fingers" Keränen's excellent IKBASE textures
are used in abundance (thus the pun in the map
title :-) and really look great with the new
engine in my opinion.

The layout is a fairly standard afair with
three closely connected, multiple level, open
air atria. There are plenty of weapons to go
around and the map plays well with up to five

Hope you have as much fun playing the map as I
have had making it. Thanks for reading.

Credits : Most importantly thanks to Iikka "Fingers"
Keränen for creating the IKBASEQ3 texture set
which is used in this map. Check out his site
for cool maps and textures:

Also thanks to Maj, Than, Paul and SpiderGEC
for testing the map and offering suggestions.
Much appreciated :-)

Simply extract the mkfingers.pk3 file and this text file into
