Deep Freeze
Arctic Texture Pack for Quake 3: Arena

This texture pack was created for a Fresh Team project which never seen the light of day, but some nice levels were produced by various members of the team as a result of the project and its textures. I am offically releasing the textures to the public for usage in any custom maps for any game. As long as you are not making money off of our hard work, all is good. Credits go to myself John 'Yogi' Hughes for the main base of the textures and Corey 'Kamarov' Peters for some additional textures, and also to Warren '=WWIII=' Williams for the sky maps.

Have fun with them!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* LEVEL DESCRIPTION *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is my 2nd Quake III map, and probably my last for Q3. Though I doubt it
will be my last map ever, I hope to design something in the future on one of the
next-gen engines.

Anyway this is a port of my Quake II map - Deep Freeze. But honestly It's hardly
a port more of an overhaul! The only thing that is remotely simular is the level
layout. Pretty much the level was rebuilt from the ground up, a few ares where
added and the level was made a little bit bigger to handle more players.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* RECOMMENDED SPECS *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This level is rather detailed and quite open so it requires a machine well
above the spec required to run Quake 3 to get good performance.

Average r_speeds are around 8000 - 11,000 with some areas seeing close to 18,000.
I just didnt want to sacrifice the details and design of the level. If it runs
to slow for you, I think its time to upgrade.

Just to compare a standard Quake 3 map has r_speeds usually around 2500 - 4500.

Minimum System Specs:
Pentium III 1GHz
128MB RAM
64MB Graphics Card with Hardware T&L (eg. GEForce 3 or better)

Recommended System Specs:
Pentium III/AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz or higher
256MB RAM or higher
128MB Graphics Card with Hardware T&L (eg. GEForce 4 or better)
