Description: Passing Uranus is a UT2K4/Doom3 styled medium sized FFA map for 3-6 players.

History: Passing Uranus is officialy my second release after my first "doublefeature" Winternacht & Sommergewitter, but inofficialy this is my first map, wich i started to build 3 years before Winternacht & Sommergewitter.
The goal of this map was again to create a visually stunning map, but this time in a different setting, wich would allow even more details then the one of my previous map(s), but this time i hope to also get some better gameplay, altough this is no attempt to create a seriously competion or tourney map.
I'm still not satisfied with it, but it's already wasting enough performance, and i worked so long on it, so i think it's time to release it.
Last but not least i'm proud to say that this time i got a lot better botsupport for the map. Enjoy!

[] System requirements []

Because of the lots of details and eycandy seen in the map the r_speeds are extremely rough, and the layout doesnt allow much optmizing.
You can gain speed with lowering the texture detail and setting r_subdivisions to 8 or 16, but this isnt advised.
A graphics card with 64mb of ram and a 3ghz+ cpu should be at least the minimum to play it (if you're wondering about the high cpu requirement, the original q3 engine renders all geometry over it, and in this map is muuuuuch geometry visible at once).
Let me know how it runs on a TNT2 or Rage128 XD

[] How to play []

For Quake 3: Unzip the .rar file into your baseq3 directory
and you are ready to rock!

Type "\map uranus" into the console or choose the map through the skirmish menu.

[] Stuff []

Botsupport: yes, and a quite good one too

New Textures & Shaders: yes. Many made by me, and the rest taken from Shub-Niggurath and thefury aka sumatra.
Some are modified to suit my needs.
Read the list below to see who made what.

New Skybox: yes, backround taken from CTF_VDL by U.S.S. Speed.

New Models: yes, all made by me

New Music: yes, a great tune from Genetic Gemini, check out his other stuff at

Cardigan (for his great tutorials, and of course for Estatica, maybe the best q3 map out there)
Shub-Niggurath, thefury aka sumatra and U.S.S. Speed wich hopefuly dont bust my ass because i used their stuff without asking first.
