Map title: the den
The den is small in size and has a real gritty/dirty look,
some parts of it can get a little cramped but theres always a
door-way or corridor waiting for you to escape down.
The bots play well in the map and have no trouble navigating
so i don't expect you to.The power ups are different in FFA and teamplay
modes (FFA gives you haste TP gives you quad&invisibility).
If you are going to play this map in team play against bots
put yourself on one team and three bots on the other and get into some
3on1 action :).Oh yeh and let me know if you find this
map too bright or bleached out, this version of the map uses ambient lighting
because i was concerned the original was too dark so i used it to brightent it up a bit.
Theres a secret in there to, its not that hard to find.
For more info see below.

The map took me about 2 weeks on and off to build.The majority of the detail and structure was built in the last 4 days of the
maps development (all indoor stuff was done on the last 2 days), the first week was spent messing around with lay-out
ideas.Theres' a lot of stuff left out of this map that was originally planed, at one point i had a huge rocket shooter in there and
pipe work that ran around the hole map, but the gun had to be taken out for performance reasons and most of the pipe work
was taken out because it looked stupid (bad patch work).The gun didn't really alter game play as much as you might think and
i am glad i got rid of it, maybee i'll put it in a more suitable map.I was also messing around with ever lasting quads but the
map wasnt suiltabe for this , maybee next time.Theres one place in the map where you can get stuck(on top of the pipe above
the plasma gun),if you get stuck here shoot the wall with the plasma gun or rocket launcher to knock yourself free.If you don't
have any of these weapons i am sure a friendly bot will come along and give you a hand down.I left this in on purpose to trap
the clumsy.Theres a lot of things i dislike about this map and the frame rates are one of them. I am getting an average of
37fps+ but there are places in the map where this can drop to as low as 18fps, but it doesn't really effect the flow of
gameplay.The map took 4hours 37mins to fully vis and light, thats on my amd450/voo300/64meg computer thingy.
Have fun in the den and
thanks for playing,
