How To Play Unzip q3f_avernus.pk3 in your Quake3/baseq3/ folder. Use normally.


This base is bigger than I expected it to be.
Dont let the size screw you up tho,
Learn where things are and how to make them work for your team. Layout is pretty simple.
Vis has been built to the specifications set by the Q3A and Q3F maps, so it really shouldnt get too laggy in any one place (supposing you have even a halfway decent computer)

5 things of note;
*1) There are secret areas in the Elevator room of each Base that hold Bags that either side can use. I added this for Agents and Engineers. It should keep things flowing.

*2) To get the Quad requires teamwork. The door to the Quad is opened from the button on the catwalk above. The distance and the duration of the doors are set so the one who pushes the button can't get to the Quad. Only someone at the door when the button is pushed will be able to get to it. Team play at its best (::cackles evilly::).

*3) As is, when you begin the map there is only the Main Center Area to get from base to base. But, on either side of each base are Blockades (the ones you can see to the other side are the ones I mean). These Blockades can be blown from either side by a Grenadiers HE charge, exposing a secret entrance to either base. It also leads to the Regen and Quickstrike Teleporters.

*4) To get the Regenration, you need to do an Indiana Jones style "Leap of Faith"

*5) Teleporters- Teleporters are like fire. When used properly, they are good. When used improperly, they are bad. Nine times out of Ten there wont be any problems, but in that One of Ten times, you will be Telefragged, or Telefrag someone else. Usually a team mate. This is normal with Teleporters of this kind. DONT take it personally, DONT screw around with them, and DO treat them with respect. They are there to HELP your team, not hinder them (IE- Dont be an ass.)


Base: 100% original.
Editor: Q3Radiant
Other progs: Q3 Build
Know Bugs: We had bugs. We fixed bugs, THIS should be the nice, clean version.
