V. General Information and discussion
This is my third official map. I was inspired by the huge UT-map named 'Kosov' made by Innox.
A big problem was the use of textures wich produces an similar atmosphere, somehow that you are
between ruins of a fallen culture or something like that. The standard textures of Q3Radiant didn't help here and
I had to take home-made or custom textures. To create this atmosphere I chose an architecture
that looks like roman or greek. Some elements and ideas coming from photos of the ruins of Petra, an old town wich
was the center of trade in Arabia 2000 years ago. The soundtrack of 'Gladiator' wich was my continual incidental musik
did the rest.
Another problem was the size of the map because Q3 isn't very liberal with that. It is really hard to think
over the r_speed at every action or brush placement. I think in the future it would be very great to creat very huge
areas like thoses in UT too. Then we would have both: An excellent 3D engine and a maximum of mobility for the actors.
The time of that you walk most of the time through a tight corridor is really over.
I hope you will enjoy this map and ey: Frag it!

Thanx for attention and reading
