Right - It's finally finished. It only took me 11 months...
Catfish Cathedral is a Quake 3 deathmatch / team deathmatch map, in a gothic church. It plays well with 4-10 players...less if you're patient, more if you want some pretty frantic action.
Bots are pretty good on it now, after a load of tweaking - but as usual, playing against human players is much more fun :)
Handy hint - Listen up for the boom as a player goes to grab the BFG to give yourself some advanced warning.
Any comments on this map would be welcome (other than "Your map's crap! start again!"...); or just a line to say hi -
email me anyway : **email removed**

* How to play this pk3 file *
1. Put map-catcath.pk3 directly into your 'baseq3' directory under your Quake III Arena directory.
2. Go to the Skirmish menu & select it under Free for All, or Team Deathmatch.

If anyone wants to nab my textures / shader files, email me to let me know, then go ahead. It's just a couple of changes - making a stained glass window & a light fitting look like they're glowing in the dark, so they hardly took hours of my time.
