* LEVEL DESCRIPTION *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I really hate writing these level descriptions, so this will be short...
My first Q3 level!! :)

This map originally started as a Q3 CTF map that I started almost 2 years ago,
in late March I decided to have a go at making it into a DM map. Damaged is
an underground base constructed of 2 main atriums and a number of hallways, and
caves for your deathmatch enjoyment.

* ADDITIONAL INFO *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I included a demo bundled with the level, called shad3dm1. It features
me playing against 16 bots!! =)
This is a great demo for benchmarking due to its rather high-poly counts. The
demo only works on Quake3 v1.31.

This level has slightly higher r_speeds than most of the standard ID software
maps. r_speeds are about 7,000 average, with the highest point I could find hits
15,000. I could of lowered r_speeds but that would of lowered the detail of the level
quite a bit. I just wasnt willing to cut out details or alter the layout to save
a few fps.

Minimum System Specs:
Pentium III 500MHz
128MB RAM
32MB Graphics Card with Hardware T&L (ex. NVidia GEForce)

I ran the level on a system with simular specs (P3-550MHz, 192MB RAM, 32MB GEForce
DDR) at 640x480 32bit color with graphics settings on Normal.. I got an average
of about 35fps playing with 4 players. The FPS ranged from about 25fps - 80fps.
Of course lowering the color depth to 16bit will increase fps quite a bit. I assume
most Q3 players have something a bit more powerful than this, so it should be a problem
at all.

Recommended System Specs:
Pentium III/AMD Athlon 700MHz or higher
256MB RAM
64MB Graphics Card with Hardware T&L (ex. NVidia GEForce2 Series)
