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
