* TRICK JUMPS *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are a lot of useful trick jumps possible ;) (some planned, some not)
I plan to put a demo of some or all trick jumps for download on my homepage.
So check it out! It's coming soon!

Please don't ask me how the trick jumps work, check out the demo, watch closly,
and try yourself!

* AUTHOR'S NOTES *
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, this is my first map. It was build for use in contests, and not for playing against
bots.

When you do use it in a contest feel free to send me a demo of the final battle,
would be very interesting :)

The jumppads to the railgun are alright the way they are. Do you know these eastern films
where the heros jump, stay in air for 10 seconds and battle in flight? That's exactly what
happens here jumping from one side to the other. Very amusing, very interesting.

PREFABS USED : None
EDITOR(S) USED : Q3Radiant from 1.79 to 2.01
CONSTRUCTION TIME : About three months
BRUSH COUNT : 3245
ENTITY COUNT : 285
KNOWN BUGS : 1) Some kristalls are broken on one side, nothing worked to fix them
(it has something to do with the prt file which has been really big)
but actually you can only see it on one of them ;)
2) Some z-fighting problems
3) Some bot navigation problems (again: architecture. Well, there are no
areas that appear to be solid to the bots.
No item_botroams or info_camp worked to fix it)
But in no way it is less funny to play against bots, actually they
will even surprise you sometimes.
