Description:Egyptian style map suited for fast gameplay.Mainly InstaUnlagged style of play.
Althought this map is suitable for baseq3 style of play,the majority
of the beta testing and play was done with the OSP and InstaUnlagged Mods. OSP config - Spawn
with all weapons,health and armor. No item/weapon pickups. Grappling hook enabled. Higher game speed
and customized weapon damage and faster rail reload. No BFG.

Xaero statue, by Oak

=============================================================================
Title : Xaero statue
Mapobject type : Stand still
Date : April 29th 2000
Filename : md3-xaero_statue.pk3

Author : Oak
Email Address : **email removed**
Home Page : www.planetquake.com/OakShiro/

Program Used : 3dsMax 3
Additional Ideas / Remarks : Deathmonger

Main Gameplay Testing : Deathmonger, Oak

=============================================================================
* About *
=============================================================================
This model is a xaero statue, there are two different versions of it (a Xaero
and a Deathmonger one), the only thing that changes is the skin. You can choose
between a xaero skin based statue, or a deathmonger skin based.
I took the xaero model as base model, created by Kenneth Scott, from Id Software.

=============================================================================
* How to install the model *
=============================================================================
Simply unzip the .pk3 file into your baseq3 directory.

=============================================================================
* How to add this model to your maps *
=============================================================================
Start Q3radiant and open/create the destination map for the model.
Right click wherever you want and select the "misc-model" option.
Close the browser and type this in the "key" and "value" boxes from the
newborn floating window:

Key: "model"

Value: "models/mapobjects/xaero_statue/xaero_statue.md3"
"models/mapobjects/dm_statue/dm_statue.md3"

Depending in which of the two versions you want to add.

multiplant2.pk3 is an expansion pack for multiplant.pk3

====================================================
model information

most of these plants use a basic shader with simple GE128 transparency

i've included prefabs with collision and sound for the original multiplant pack.
not recomended for the traditionally preferred "smoothly clipped" map.
all triggers should be set to fire only once every 3-5 sec.

how to use place multiplant2.pk3 in your /baseq3/ folder
choose one of the multiplant models from the model menu
in Q3Radient

build time: these were built over a very long period of time, and
i've lost track of time spent actually modeling.

====================================================
thanks to ...

Sovereign for model testing.
Mr. Clean for textures used in these prefabs.

someone for a bark texture or two, the origin of which i've lost track.

Todd Gantzler's Plant Model Pack, Version 2.3 03.03.05
Updated by Obsidian (**email removed**)
zzz_md3_multiplant_v23.pk3

FOR FULL INFORMATION AND COPYRIGHT INFO, PLEASE REFER TO:
* legacy_multiplant.txt
* legacy_multiplant2.txt
* legacy_readme.txt

INFORMATION
=================================================================
This is an update to Todd Gantzler's multiplant models,
containing all assets from both Plant Model Pack I and II.

I (Obsidian) am redistributing this pack with Todd's permission
with several bug fixes and optimizations.

INSTALLATION
=================================================================
* Remove any older versions of the Multiplant model pack.
* Extract zzz_md3_multiplant_v23.pk3 to "baseq3" directory.

* Note: Do not rename the zzz_md3_multiplant_v23.pk3 file. PK3
files are loaded into Quake3 in alphabetical order and the
updated multiplant model pack must be loaded after any pre-
existing versions to overwrite them.

VERSION HISTORY
=================================================================
2.3 (03.03.05)
* tallpalm1.map, tallpalm2.map, tallthinpalm.map prefab objects
rebuilt in 3dsMAX and exported as ASE models (remakes)
* Resized image files to power of 2 dimensions (larger file
size but optimized for texture memory and image quality)
* palm3.md3 - rearranged edge orientation, welded vertexes,
reapplied smoothing groups, UVW-wrapped, reapplied materials
* palm4.md3 - welded vertexes, reapplied smoothing groups,
reapplied materials
* palm4a.md3 - welded vertexes, reapplied smoothing groups,
changed leaf materials from palmfrond to bannanaleaf
2.2 (28.02.05)
* Fixed bug when models are overlapped with alphaMod volume
brushes (thanks ydnar)
* Fixed missing shader error (thanks Kat)
* Rewrote "invisible" shader for dual purpose use with both
legacy and modern maps
* Renamed PFB files to MAP for use with GtkRadiant
* Reattached Todd's prefabs to zip
* Added multiplant.bsp as a model gallery (/devmap multiplant)

2.1 (03.06.04)
* Updated to include Plant Model Pack II
* Palm models processed through MD3Fix.exe
* palms.shader merged into multiplant.shader
* "models/mapobjects/multiplant/invisible" shader replaced with
a modified nodraw shader for reduced polycounts

2.0 (28.05.04)
* Initial Version 2 release
* MD3's processed through MD3Fix.exe 0.2 to correct invalid
shader names generated by Pop'n'Fresh

NOTES FOR DEVELOPERS
=================================================================
Also included for developers are updated versions of Todd's
prefabs, converted to .map format for use with recent versions of
GtkRadiant.

To view the gallery type "/devmap multiplant" in the console. The
sample map was compiled with Q3Map2 2.5.16 with the following
light switches: -light -fast -patchshadows -samples 3 -gamma 2
-compensate 4 -dirty

To add models in your maps, you may need to extract the MD3 files
from the PK3 to your development directory.

Make sure you add "multiplant" to your shaderlist.txt document.

Compile your map using the latest stable version of Q3Map2.

As a result of creating support of legacy maps as well as
optimizing the models for new maps, the "invisible" shader was
improved for this release (2.2+). Legacy maps will display an
invisible shader, but extra polys will be drawn. Newly compiled
maps will make use of the nodraw features of the shader, so the
extra polys will not be drawn in game, resulting in improved
performance.

I noticed that palm4.md3 and palm4a.md3 were the exact same model
so I retextured the leaves of palm4a with the bannanaleaf.tga
texture to give some variation between the models (version 2.3).

THANKS
=================================================================
Obsidian would like to thank...
* ydnar for Q3Map2, MD3Fix and help with the updated shaders.
* Kat for bug testing.
* Todd Gantzler for the chlorophyll.
