* About *
The layout for the map is a horizontal "I" on top of a horizontal "X". There are 4,
three level atriums at the corners of the map connected together with winding
corridors and a "combat area" in the middle. The philosophy behind the map is
"all roads lead to rome", rome in this case being the rocket launcher.
The theme is sort of an abandoned atmospheric processing plant, rusting away on
some godforsaken planet but still fully functioning. Toxic waste leaks and
chlorine gas are the catch of the day but nothing a hardened arena warrior can't
handle. Now why are you wasting time reading this. Get busy fragging!
Feedback is greatly appreciated: **email removed**

Hints and tips : 1)Rocket jumps are fun :=)!
2)Blue energy pipes can be walked on and shot through.
3)I saw a red door and I want to paint it black, or was it green.
Known Bugs : No bugs but some "issues".
1) Bots don't go for the quad. Not so strange though since it
requires a rocket jump or risking suicide in a slime corridor.
2) The door sounds repeat everytime you touch the trigger brush.
Tried to solve this with a "wait" but it didn't help.
-Solution: Don't stand in the sound trigger.
3) Some "zebra-ing" in the yellow fog, by the red armor door. I
didn't see it on my system but it showed up on Futureprobes.
-Solution: Hardly noticeable. Ignore it and keep fragging.
4) Players may get a "little" stuck on some architecture even though
it has been "clip-brushed"
-Solution: Ignore it. Seldom happens and it doesn't really effect
gameplay at all.
