Thanks to:

id software for such a great game
the good people at, especially Eutectic, for guiding me through the whole process.
my wife, for not asking too many questions or hassling me to earn more money and get off my lazy fat arse even though she has no comprehension of why I play quake or make maps. She's a good woman.

Known problems:

- Strange square one-sided surface in the Hot Tub itself - difficult to see in the game, impossible to find in the editor. But I will try.
- The bots can't use buttons properly. As you will see if you play q3dm7, they just hang around waiting for the door to open. The bots had a habit of hanging round at the bottom of the pool hoping the door would open so they would get the megahealth, during which time they drowned. So... firstly they aren't "attracted" to the megahealth and will make no attempt to use it. And secondly, they will always try to avoid the pool though of course they can fall in. This fudge is based on play testing and is the best solution I came up with. I have no plans to fix it.

Changes from version 1.00:

- Fixed flickering wall (don't know how)
- Fixed "disappearing wall" near pool.
- Included missing texture in pk3 file
