I recommend no more than 12 players total. *I had to include the femhead.md3, as well as the textures that go with it for folks who don't have qeradiant 181 installed on their systems (most Quake 3 users, probably). *R_speeds are well under the 10,000 - 12,000 limits prescribed at RUST. They don't even reach 9,000 anywhere, and are on par with ID's. Mostly, they are about 5,000. The texture load is also very reasonable. *I know that ID made most of their levels very bright and evenly lit; this can be cool, but I prefer contrast and shadow--I like things a bit moodier (if you've seen any of my Prince of Persia 3D levels, you'll know what I mean). I know the level is dark. Play this level in a dark room for the best effect. *I've added a music track to the worldspawn, but my recommended listening for this map is "Home Nucleonics" by Strapping Young Lad. If you like loud and chaotic metal, I recommend picking up anything by these guys. Anyway. Have fun. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you're running this map on a server--you're more than welcome to kick my ass. **COPYRIGHT/PERMISSIONS** "The Ring of Bone" is Copyright (c) 2000 by Carson A. Utz.
