I. Install Instructions
--------------------------------------------------------------------
a) Quake 3 Arena --> Extract pm_incognita.zip into your baseq3 folder.
Normally Terra Incognita should appear in the map menue after you've chosen skirmish mode.
For some reasons Terra Incognita doesn't appear here sometimes. Then try following example:
Extract pm_incognita.zip into baseq3 folder. Right click on Q3Arena starticon (short cut) on your desktop (or whereever).
Choose properties out of the menu, there choose connection. Into the white field add following commands (behind

Terra Incognita starts automatically after you have doubleklicked the q3a icon.

V. Known Bugs
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Not known yet.
Hope you won't find any... :)
Please, let me know which bugs you've found (if so). You could mail to me: **email removed**

-------------------------------------------------------------------
VI. General Information and discussion
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This is my part of the 'Mars-Project', which was a whole map-project with several mappers involved.
Well, to the fact that the q3-engine becomes much too old and many new features like realtime/dynamic shadows
and lights or bump mapping are not supported, it is the best time for me say good bye to good old quake3-mapping.
I will get more variations and atmosphere with newer technology which should come with DOOM3 and latest
DirectX9/10 features in the future.
For me id-products will be the best choice to get full flavour of latest 3D-power and technology, so I will
be very active by constructing new 3D-world with that kind of new technics, editors and possibilities.
However, I've to learn a lot of new stuff. The results hopefully will be better maps with much more atmosphere.
It may be that you won't see me for the next year. It's not because I'm hanging around ;) , it's because I've
to train and learn about how to use new technology, and, of course, have to play DOOM3. ;)
So, another project is to build up new website for german community end of 2003 or early 2004, be aware!

VIII. Project Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------------

**********************Mars-Project**********************
This Map is part of the Mars-Project, which started at 15th august 2002 and actually (23.02.2003) is continued.
The Mars-Project should end in a series of maps with different gametypes someday.
The only thing they should have in common should be the setting or idea.
Idea was the thought or the imagination of colonization of planet Mars in the future.

--> Present active members are:
(in brackets: name of the map oder job)

* mIKE (mikemars)
* Harmonieman (betatest and more)
* gecko (headquarter)
* jokue (desertcamp)
* MopAn (Terra Incognita)
* GreenThumb (webmaster)

--> Special thanx to following members which did a great job at the beginning of the project:
