"Ziggurat Vertigo" is one of the original "secret" levels that
comes with "Quake". It was originally designed by
American McGee. It is a low-gravity environment. This was
my favorite Deathmatch map. I did not convert the map. This map
was redrawn brush by brush. I decided to do this map right after
being told on the Q3 bus that there were no low-gravity
environments in the final release. Aside from the additional "eye candy",
I did substitute textures, items and weapons. The Grenade Launcher
in the original had to be left out because in Quake 3 the
low-gravity environment had no effect on the grenades themselves.
