Description: 5 on 5 Capture the Flag (But it supports up to 20 players)
Skills 0,1,2,3: Nope.
CTF: Yup. Q3F style. 5 on 5 CTF. Can support up to 20 players. 10 spawn points on each team, but I dont reccomend anything over 6 per team.
Bot File (aas): Nope.
New Sounds: Nope.
New Graphics: Yes. I use alot of the Quake3Fortress textures. I just put them all into one folder so I wouldnt have a headache using them.
New Music: Nope.
How To Play Unzip q3f_xenon.pk3 in your Quake3/baseq3/ folder (or your q3f folder). Use normally.
I've noted some FPS issues on Xenon, that because of what it is (a space map) cant be helped. This FPS issue MAINLY occurs in lower end machines. This map may not be suited for your machine, but that I can't help. My best advice is if the FPS gets to choppy for you, try the map in Vertex Lighting instead of Lightmap. It should clean any FPS issues up nicely.
Xenon is my first space map for Q3F. I tried to keep it small and compact. 5 on 5 is ideal for this baby. No secrets. Recons and Snipers have been removed for obvious reasons. Gren 1's and Gren2's have been removed from spawn, the only gren's in game are gren 1, and you get them by capping the flag. There is no cover in the spawn areas, I didnt see the need. If your teams bad enough that someone can get over there and spam the hell out of you, you deserve it. Gravity is down 100 points, from 800. Spacing will happen alot, dont let it get you down.
Additions from Beta 1:
1) Reversed Flag Stands.
2) Added Teleporter from Respawn to Lower Jump Pads (team specific teleporters, BTW).
3) Reduced Flag Down time, and Quad Power Time.
4) Cleaned some construction bugs.
5) Added some lights here and there.
6) Removed all spawn grenades. The only Gren's in game are Gren1's, and you get them from capping.
7) Some small structural changes.
Addition from Beta 2:
1) Fixed an errant brush overlap.
2) added some texture to the lower landing pads.
3) Edited some of the coding in the entities for ease of use.
Base: 100% original.
Other progs: Q3 Build
Know Bugs: No known bugs. Lemme know if you find at find at **email removed**
Build Time: 3 days main construction. A few hours fixing bugs/adding things.
