how to play place lost_mines.pk3 in your /baseq3/ folder

type /map lost_mines

my fourth q3a map - first one really released to the public

the r_speeds in this map soar above and beyond id's recommended
values (just over 16,000 polygons in the worst location). i still get
40 fps in this view though (and my gaming setup is no monster), so
i opted to let it be. in my defense, the map was mainly designed for
clan arena. therefore the actual polycount will be lower for most games,
as there will be no entities drawn. heh, if you think 16000 is high,
then you should have seen the numbers flying before i went back and
revamped it. lol. about 20,000: ack! =P so, yes, albeit not great,
this is still an improvement. i do apologize if the map runs too slow
on your system to be playable =(
