"Rocket" Arena
**************************************************************** title : "Rocket" Arena version : 1.0 release date : 26 May 2006 filename : rocketarena.bsp author : remnent email address : **email removed** website : remnent.s5.com **************************************************************** [description] This map is for the www.leveldesign.nl Geocomp4 mapping competition. I really like the 'minima' map that won the geocomp2, and I like to make maps in that style (very simple geometry), so I entered this competition. However, I got an idea to do this map, which is really out of my comfort zone. I wanted an evil scientist lab or alien world with a rocket launch area. I wanted to have a "test-fire" button that would be used to guard the quad. I also wanted the option to actually launch the rocket after a certain time, but didn't see how that would work with gameplay (let alone mapping it). I also wanted see through cargo areas that could be accessed by breaking them to get to the weapons, etc. Somehow with my limited mapping abilities, I was actually able to learn and make these things happen. I am happy that I was able to make those things a reality, but in the end- my abilities and this map are really not good enough to even be in the Geocomp4. I would pull it out, but I hate when a competition ends up with no entries. (I did win a quake mapping comp. because no one else entered...). I also enjoy shooting more than gathering weapons, so the Rocket Arena method of starting with weapons is used, except for the Rail. You can shoot through the chain-link floor, but not through the vertical support trusses. **************************************************************** [installation] Extract the .zip to your /baseq3 directory Hit ~ and type /sv_pure 0 then type /map rocketarena then type /addbot xaero (etc...) **************************************************************** [play information] game : Quake3Arena type : ffa, tourney players : 2-4 recommended bot support : yes [construction] custom shaders : no custom sounds : yes, music done by me: remnent.
