Each base resides within a huge tower with the flag
housed on a platform in a large central room. The
megahealth floats on top of each base, accessible
by a scenic route. You can also use air-control to
slow your flight to the megahealth so you drop in
on the flag from above.
The centre tower is where the offensive powerups spawn
in regular CTF, and where the neutral flag is housed

This is my first officially released map for Quake III Arena.
It was quite a learning experience, especially struggling
with the limitations of the Quake III engine, battling with r_speeds
and map layout, and trying to design a map that not only looked good but
had good gameplay as well.
