description: - last updated: February 22, 2001

- this is a small space map in the style of Q3DM18, Space Chamber
... a space floater with distinct areas of battle
- most of the map can be seen by vis at all times,
and so the r_speeds are high (8K to 12K)

GENERAL INFO :
____________________________________________________
- this map is a hybrid dm and space map ... dm in that there are distinct
areas of battle where you cannot be seen by other players ... and it's
like a spacemap in that VIS sees nearly the entire map at all times (and you
can fall off the edge and die)
- the r_speeds are high due to the nature of the layout ... i apologise
to those people with systems that get choked :P

- here's a tip: the purple wormhole is a teleporter.
there are two triggers above the wormhole that send a player
back up onto the decks by the launch pads.

- the map is textured with Quake III Arena id textures,
my own custom special fx, and trimmed with evil lair's fifth texture pack.
(thanks to evil lair and Maj for "evil5")

- i've appended "nkd_" into the shader names and texture directories
of the evil lair pack to avoid conflicts with any maps using the default scripts.
- here's some info on evil lair:

known bugs: bots sometimes hang around the bouncepads. bots won't go for mega health.
build time: four weeks
compile time: - bsp_fullvis (light -extra -threads 2) = 7.5 hours (an extra 3 hours with HINT BRUSHES)
compile machine: dual PIII 650, 512MB RAM, 10K RPM Scsi2 HD, GeForce2 GTS 64MB DDR

technical notes:
hint brushes are used in some very unorthodox ways in this map ... in one test i was actually able to
get geometry that was right in front of me to disappear. hints were blocking vis for something that was
directly in my line of sight in a wide open area! the hint brushes i've added have dropped the rendered
tri counts in some areas by nearly 2K.
the added vis cuts increased the number of clusters from 300 to 1200. for a map this size, that is way too
many. bot play appears to be unaffected, tho ... so i'll leave it at that :P
