March 20, 2000 ============================================================ Title : The Shortest Straw Filename : excq3dm1.bsp Author : Per Nordahl aka "Excelsiore" Email Address : **email removed** Homepage : www.geocities.com/xcelsiore ICQ : UIN: 15051214 (Excelsiore), send me your thoughts... Map description : Two words: Nonstop action! 18 jumppads, 6 teleporters and 4 bobbing platforms. Spacemap designed for fast and furious fragging. A speedfreaks dream, but also with the railgunning sniper in mind. My first Quake 3 map. Loosely based on "The Longest Yard" (q3dm17), which is one of my favorite maps, don`t ask me why. Last time I did map editing for an id software game was Doom II. Damn that was a long time ago. Used this map as a learning experience to familiarize myself with QERadiant so don`t expect anything spectacular. Players : 6-8 players (playable with 2-12 but best with 6-8, 8 spawnpoints) Thanks to : id software, for the fine work on Q3A! Special Thanks to : Strixis for her patience and putting up with me pestering her about betatesting! ============================================================ ***** Construction ***** Editor used : QERadiant build 181 Base : Scratch Build time : approx 5 days Compile time : approx 90 minutes (Fastvis) Bot support : Yes Known Issues : Bots have trouble getting the bfg and one or two always seem to be standing still on one of the bobbing platforms. ============================================================ ***** System/Level Specs ***** CPU/RAM : Celeron 400(o/c'd 500)/128 RAM Video : TNT 2 M64 Vanta ============================================================ ***** How to use the .pk3 ***** 1.
