================================================================

* Description *


The map was made for Thunderlipps q3 servers www.thunderlipps.com
where I spend most of my free time playing with a fine bunch of folks:)

This is my very first public release of a quake3 map. The project was fun
and a good learning experience. I look forward to new and improved maps in
the future providing that all who helped can put up with me for additional
releases :)

Configured for fast action ffa, my favorite type of map. Can't really put a player limit on it, but it was intended to insanely hold 13 peeps if it had to for some good old shootem ups.

There is a bfg in this map, but you'll die a 1000 deaths trying to get it.
It was placed in the level for the pure fun of watching newbies kill themselves :)

There is a secret area in the map, nothing much, but exciting the first time you find it. The goodies make the visit worth while. I'm not going to tell you how to find it, figure it out :)

There's alot of camping spots for Jega, by far the most talented camper I've
ever seen :)

The map is viewed best with high graphics and texture detail settings, with lightmap and dynamic lighting turned on.
