- Background information -
"Celestial Mechanics" was originally released in June 2001 as a map for
Quake III Team Arena (under the name erta1). Now, almost 19 years later,
the map is converted for use with Quake III Arena.
This Q3A version of Celestial Mechanics is largely the same as its Q3TA
counterpart. It has been retextured so it no longer depends on Q3TA textures
and the Q3TA-specific items (Doubler, Ammo Regen, Guard, Nailgun, Kamikaze)
have been replaced with Q3A items.
The filename of this map is ermap2, despite the fact that ermap3 and ermap4
already exist. The erta1 map was the second map I had ever released but this
was before I decided to adopt the ermapX naming convention. The most logical
name for this Q3A conversion of the map would therefore be ermap2.
