Description
===================================================================================

This is my second official release (look for mjdm2 - Reise Rei/se
at ..::lvl, my first release !). It's a single player experiment with
lots of traps and difficult jumps, stress, so be aware !

===================================================================================
production notes
===================================================================================

First, I wanted to make a 3d adaptation of the game called
"Difficulty:Maximal" developped my Gideon "QOG" Simons
(quiteoddgames.blogspot.com/) for a game making contest.
So I analyzed the type of traps and trials and tried to make an
equivalent obstacle course, enjoyable for skilled and less
skilled persons. I was also motivated a single player level,
seeing that it was possible to make enjoyable experiments
with Simonoc's map "Edge of Forever"
(www.simonoc.com/pa...s_q3/moteof.htm).
The graphic style take the coulour scheme of the original game
and adds all the details that the quake 3 engine can give to try
create a pseudo realistic universe. I used a lot of wood textures
because I find that it's a material rather less represented in
fantasy environnements and I like making original visual choices.
I first wanted to spend a week on this map, but now it's about 6
weeks I've started it. I'm really pleased by the result, but not
by my performance at work (laughs).

===================================================================================
Textures
===================================================================================

All the textures of the black and White universe were made by me,
from some stock photos I accumulate on my computer since a couple of
years. Some were made from material found on www.cgtextures.com. All
the textures of the ending zone, except the gate at the end of the
corridor, are from Simonoc's terrain and plants textures packs.
