File size: about 3,000 KB - Color themes about 400 KB

Color Themes page: www.planetquake.co...m17_colors.html

Theme Color Feature: New feature in this map, you can download different color themes. I created 2 different files
the first have the essential files (bsp-aas) the second got all media file such as textures ecc.
For specific instruction on how to create different themes and how to use them please read
info_themes.txt included in the zip of the map.If you got only the first file of the map will not appear in the skirmish mený.

Tip: If you want to see all the cooliness of this map try to play with antialiasing and with all the features of your videocard ON (i use the default brightness of q3 or it is too bright).
It is made of 90% of patches and can be a bit slow on old computers anyway take a look
and comment it :D.
