Thanks to evillair for his great texture set, Might Pete for the skybox, Hipshot's work on Solar (shaders), and T_Creutzenberg's texture. A very special thanks go to Sock for letting me use his POM greenery. Without his awesome work on POM, AEdm7 would be a quite dreary and boring map. His plants and rock design concept made a huge difference in this map. Thanks to the folks at the www.quake3world.com Level Editing & Modeling forums for the constructive feedback and for helping me beta test this map. * Legal Stuff * This level is (C) 2006-2012 Christoph A.
