Map trivia -
> All building textures are from real sites in Rosslyn and Springfield, Virginia
and Silver Spring, Maryland. The photographs were taken with a Canon
Powershot S10 digital camera and manipulated in Photoshop 5.5.
> The two largest towers' textures are from the Gannett/USA TODAY buildings in
Rosslyn, Virginia. The apartment textures were taken from the exterior of
my apartment in Alexandria, Virginia.
> The manhole covers are the jump pads.
> I included the grappling hook (unskinned) just for giggles.
> Bots have a tendency to stay street level. But they spread out all over
the level. I hae played with up to 14 bots.
> If you wish to use the textures in your own level, drop me an email
so I can check out your work! Thanks in advance.
> To run the level, load Quake 3 and bring down the console.
