Description : This map stemmed from some textures that
Lunaran originally created for my last map
MKVDV. I managed to get hold of the textures
after the map had been released (through no
fault of Lunaran :-) but they were so cool I
immediately started a new map to make use of

There is *heavy* shader useage in this map so
performance may be an issue of lesser systems.
I've done my best to reduce r_speeds but they
are still pretty high in places. If the map is
slow on your PC then tough I'm afraid. I loved
the look of the map so much that I wasn't
about to remove detail or shaders to improve
performance :-P

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