Description : Faithful conversion of the Quake 1 map ultrav.bsp. There was already a Q3 port of UltraV - q3ultrav.pk3 by R "Slomoe" Robertson. However it felt too small in scale and some items had been substituted in a way I felt didn't hold to the original. This version sticks as close as possible to the original, just scaling up (to 1.125x) to accommodate Q3's differences in speed/movement. Since base Q3 does not have a green/25 armor, there is a magic armor shard on the upper walkway which will give you 25 armor when you collect it.
Unusually for a duel level, the quad is essential to play here. If your server has powerups disabled for 1v1, you will need to enable them for this map to work as intended.
Bots work fine, but tend to run the upper corridor and teleporters in a fairly tight loop.
