* Description *
This is quite a large expansive level, with plenty of perches and ledges, and with a great deal of room
to move on all three axes. I fought seemingly endless battles with cluster portals and r_speeds while
making this monster. At one time, r_speeds peaked at nearly 13K in a couple of spots--now r_speeds are
below 9K in almost all areas, although there are a couple of spots just over 9K, and one quite difficult-to-
reach spot that breaks 10K. On low end systems, you may experience a bit of stuttering when the
level is loaded up with bots. One cluster (which contains most of the exterior portion of the map) has
1001 areas (down from 1700+ by extensive use of cluster portal brushes). The open, heavily vertical
nature of the map does not lend itself well to cluster subdivision. :-)

I got from someone on the Q3World Level Editing Forum a long time ago. Sorry,
whoever you are, I can't remember and didn't write it down. :-( The skybox is
custom from the creative mind of Sock. Thanks Sock! The Q3 wall banner shader
is a modified form of the original banner shader from id.

The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to constants; instead of referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every appearance, the variable PI can be given that value with a DATA statement . . . This also simplifies modifying the program, should the value of pi change.
