* LEVEL DESCRIPTION *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's quite a big level i think; the idea was to construct a iron-and-blocks based
level with Q1 inspirations (i forgot to add runes!).
Surely isn't much technically designed, but my first goal was to recreate cool
atmospheres i had in mind..
...this means giant columns and deep pits with bases standing in the lava,
surrounded by hellish fog.
I think in 2002 a mapper can play with brushes caring less about VIS size.. hehe
Anyway, some teleporters teleport randomly, first this was a bug, now i think
it adds some spice to the map... i hope it's chaotic enough..
If you want to send me comments you are welcome to do so on the email address above.

* CREDITS *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

id software :for the creation of the QUAKE series
the mappers at q3world :skid,jetscreamer2,djbob,vudugeci,aramique

remembering me the use of detail brushes!
without them i probably wouldn't even compile this
map!
all the mappers out there :for great ideas
my lovely girlfriend pecorasta:for believing in me
the poor twisted quaker :for downloading my level

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* BUGS *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, every time playing the game you'll see an annoying warning concerning that
pecorasta_bass_6-2.wav is not 22Khz stereo.
THIS WILL NOT AFFECT PERFORMANCE, TRUST ME.
I had to keet the bug because i was unable to convert it to stereo (i tried with
SoundForge 5 and windows media recorder) without hearing buzzling sounds in
uake3.If you succeed, let me know.

There's also a missing texture but since i can't find it anywhere i didn't put
it in the pk3 file.

I fixed 6 missing textures.Now just some brushes are out of place but this won't
be a problem while playing..
