Return to the Edge
================================================================ Title : Return to the Edge Date : 12/13/2000 Filename : map-charonq2dm1v2.pk3 Author : Charon Email Address : **email removed** : (best to visit my site and get my current email address) Website : www.interactivedeath.net/ Description : I was sick of seeing all the crappy revisions : of "The Edge"(q2dm1) from quake2. Most of them : were horrible bsp conversions of some sort : that turned out hideous and did the map no : justice at all. I decided it was time for someone : to sit down and spend time and actually hand : do the map for quake3. You will find no fancy : jumpads, no clear water, and no drastic layout : changes. You will also find upon entering the : level that it is definately not a clone of the : map. This map uses Quake3 textures and gives the : feel that "The Edge" has been rusted over and decaying. Update: : This is version2 of this map. The first one had : major shader issues. All of those have been resolved : and completely new shaders that are completely seperate : from the ones that came with the game have been made. : There were a few architectural changes. These were : made to fix proportional issues that I somehow didn't : calculate right. Not all the proportions have been : corrected, but quite a few of the important ones : that were pointed out have been. Also, I understand this : is one of those love or hate maps, so if you hate it, : don't bother going through all the trouble of telling : me how much this map has been overdone and wornout. Additional Credits to : id software, Normal, everyone who pointed out ways : I could improve this level and all of those who : wanted it to be redone ================================================================ - Play Information - Players : Preferably 2-8 players though can accomadate as many as you like. Bots : Yes. And they play very well. Try one on one. With large groups : though they will want to hang around the lower rocket launcher.
