I hope you like this CTF level. I built it in the manner of what I enjoy, as
always, and I hope you enjoy it too. It's symmetrical across two axis, in
the spirit of ID's own q3ctf3, which should make learning the layout fairly
intuitive. It has a combination of claustrophobic and agoraphobic areas for
a diverse emphasis of weapon proficiencies. The mean weapons are spread across
the midpoint, so they require some brave fetching, especially if you want
to defend the base. Don't sweat it, though, there are two railguns. Just
don't get cocky. :-)

You may distribute this map on the internet, on a network or other electronic
medium where it can be obtained for FREE, but only as long as it is distributed
in the file ALONG WITH this .txt file (riscq3ctf1.txt). You may NOT remove
the .pk3 file and distribute it alone--the map and this .txt must go together.
In addition, this .txt file must remain unaltered when distributed. The new textures
are all variations on ID's and still belong to them. For that reason, you can do anything
with them that ID Software allows for in their own EULA.

If you wanna put this on a magazine CD, great, but you must first obtain from me
HANDWRITTEN permission. Just email me with an address and I'll mail you the permission
form. You should also send me a free copy of the magazine issue with which the CD
is packaged.

You may NOT use this map as a base for building other maps.
You may NOT convert this .bsp file into a .map file or reverse engineer it in any way.
