This is a CTF map ONLY. Four team_ctf and five respawn positions for
each team. Also there is a player_start position somewhere. The map
will appear in your skirmish menu in the CTF category. If it doesn't,
get a contract on me! Or, you can pull down the console by
using the ~ key, and type:/g_gametype 4, press enter, and then
type:/map reptctf11, press enter again, and voila!
So far i am influenced from the "q3ctf1" and from Infern0's "jtnctf1",
"Mayhem At The Base", as for the layout. I always use the same weapons
you 'll find here, because i only play with bots (never been on the
web) and these are: Daemia and Sarge prefer the SG, Grunt and Keel
prefer the RG, and Major, Visor and myself the RL. I always use
the PG and sometimes you 'll find the BFG. As for the construction,
i only built as far as the map can play fast and furious on my tired
Cel466 and Voodoo3. My focus is on frantic gameplay. And i can tell
you something about this particular map: Not reccomended to minors,
graphic violence depicted!
TEXTURES & MAPOBJECTS
Let me tell you the story of these textures:
I was doing a hunting trip for textures and i stopped by Sock's site.
He had two new texpacks which i believe called them Gothic-X and
Mideval, but he couldn't release them, because they were based on
id's textures and mean ol' idsoftware ordered the removal of modified
Q3A textures from all sites. Now Sock, must be a smart guy. He had
plenty of samples, reduced in size, for example 192x192 instead of
256x256 and so on. I copied the pages as is, cut the double outlines
and brought the textures to actual sizes, added layers and masks and
alpha channels and got me 275 textures from that. Seems like poetic
justice to me. Some textures herein contain layers from id's drawings,
so sue me! (I also colorized three of their textures). Other artists
involved: textures marble01skull, marble01tri, marble01flower contain
layers that belong to Todd "Mr Clean" Rose. Also the blend texture
marblefx01 belongs to him (all the above from texpack4), and the
texture marble15mask contains a layer from his "Prophecy" texpack.
Textures marble01_512c, marble01q1, marble15_512c contain layers from
the beautiful texpack2 made by Thearrel "Kiltron" McKinney. Textures
marble01q2 and marble01xl contain layers that belong to another pro,
Kevin "Rorshach" Johnstone, from the "Singlemalt" and "Broken" texpacks
respectively. The texture marble15sock contains a layer from Sock's
weapon spawn models (is the actual texture idsoftware from Q3TA or it
belongs to Sock?) Finally, the texture marble15barellg contains a
layer which i can't remember where i found it (sorry 'bout that).
The skullportal.md3, along with it's textures and shader, belongs to
Todd Gantzler, a miracle worker of mapobjects and what not.
NOTICE: I had a misc_portal_camera placed on the skullportal, looking
at the red flag, but it gave trouble. When you climbed the blue stairs
and immediately turned to the right, looking between the third and
fourth pole towards the red ramp to shoot some red geeks, the frame
rate was the lowest imaginable. Only when you looked across between
these two poles! I guess it was the effect of looking at a shader
through another shader (this opening is clipped, preventing the
bots to follow the wrong route). Oh my, and, boo hoo...

6) Thankyou ma!
My name is Jimmy, i am a 35yo musician from Athens, Greece.
Likes: WWII airplanes, european football, women, whiskey (with ice tea
on the side), playing music and writing songs. Dislikes: mean and
stupid, greedy and that little fascistic pig that everybody has in em.
I chose the name Firethrottle not because i'm bad, but because it is
the parameter that defines how fast a bot fires its gun in Q3A. As a
player i go by the name Reptile, hence the "reptctf-something". I'm a
textureholic and a CTF freak. If you like this map and you want to make
some changes, email me at: **email removed** and i'll send you the
.map file, hoping you 'll be decent about it.
