The Engines of Creation Mappack
Q3SPENHANCED v2.2
-----------------

A mod by THE ENGINES OF CREATION for QUAKE III ARENA.

This mod allows you to set up an arenas.txt file that includes TDM and CTF maps as part of the list of single player arenas.
It allows you to create your own map packs with single player arena support that include TDM and CTF maps.

Features:
- Tournament, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag modes possible in single player mode.
- Tracking Capture, Assist and Defense awards in single player mode.
- Single Player level select UI shows gametype for Tournament, TDM and CTF maps.
- Single Player level select UI slightly changed to allow display of new awards.
- In Single Player CTF gametype, the "perfect" award is awarded when the enemy team scores no caps.
- Alternative intermission screen in single player TDM and CTF.
- Having only a single tier won't put game into demo mode.
- Single player progress, scores and unlocked videos are stored under different cvar to make sure progress isn't carried over from baseq3 q3config.cfg files.
- Console command "q3spenhanced" echoes out the version of the q3spenhanced mod that's running.
- When clicking the "next" button after finishing a single player arena, the game kicks all bots and loads the next level. The g_spNextLevelDelay cvar (default 500) determines the amount of time (in ms) between kicking the bots and loading the next level. If you are experiencing problems with loading bots for the next level (they don't properly join the game or become invisible) increase the value for this setting.
- New cvar setting cg_drawTimelimit. When set to 1, the time remaining in the match will be displayed in the lower right corner of the screen.
- The cg_drawTimer cvar can now be set to 2 to display the time remaining in the match. When set to 1, or when no timelimit is set, it will display the old timer.

In the single player tournament (1v1) gametype, the player needs to beat each bot in the game in a 1v1 match to complete the arena. Losing a single 1v1 fight automatically results in a complete loss for the player.

This mod can be freely distributed and used as basis for a custom single player arena listing.

A custom arena file should be built using the following syntax:

{
map "q3ctf1"
longname "Dueling Keeps"
bots "mynx ranger sorlag stripe sarge"
capturelimit 3
type "spc ctf"
}

MAP : the filename of the bsp file.
LONGNAME : the full name of the map.
BOTS : the bots to fight against. In team games, bots are spawned in order, alternating between teams (starting with the opposing team).
FRAGLIMIT : the fraglimit for FFA and TDM games.
CAPTURELIMIT : the capturelimit for CTF games.
TIMELIMIT : the timelimit for FFA, TDM or CTF games.
TYPE : the gametype(s) for this map. For single player arenas, use:
- "spf" for Free For All
- "sp1v1" for Tournament
- "spt" for Team Deathmatch
- "spc" for Capture the Flag
note that the "single" gametype is ignored. Use the old "ffa", "tourney", "team" and "ctf" types for multiplayer.
SPECIAL : use "training" to specify this map is a tier 0 introduction map.
use "final" to specify this map is a final tier boss map.
maps with either special indications will be the only map in their respective tiers (like q3dm0 and q3tourney6 in standard Quake 3)

Note that the game will only display tiers that consist of a full 4 maps (other than the special tiers). If a tier does not show up, it means
the game doesn't find four maps to fill up another tier.

THE ENGINES OF CREATION MAPPACK
-------------------------------

May 1st, 2020
This mappack is a showcase of the Quake III Arena mapping efforts of a group of individuals who banded together under the name of "The Engines of Creation". Over 20 years ago, in March 2000, r3tina released his first custom Quake III Arena level called "Eagle's Temple". In the 20 years after that, 25 maps have been built and released by r3tina, Eraser and SithLord. Most of them for Quake III Arena, but some of them for Quake III Team Arena, Urban Terror, Defrag, Domination or EntityPlus. And that's not counting the remixed re-releases of some of the maps for mods like PureCTF or AllianceCTF.

Before you lies the collection of 20 years of mapping for just Quake III Arena alone, bundled together in a neat mappack complete with a full fledged single player structure based on the Q3SPEnhanced mod. The maps are structured into five tiers, including a training tier and a final tier, all complete with intro cinematics and an ending cinematic. The whole set of maps spans four gametypes: Free For All, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and 1v1 Tournament mode. Take this trip through 20 years of mapping and enjoy the fight.

How to use?
-----------

Extract the entire contents of the eocmappack.zip file into your Quake III Arena installation folder. The maps are all installed in the baseq3 folder so you can use them in vanilla Quake 3 or any other mod as well. To play the custom single player mode, run the supplied eocmappack.bat file to start Quake 3 with the single player mod loaded.
There are introduction videos for the tiers as well as an ending cinematic. Note that Quake III Arena will not display these videos correctly if you're running the game in a non 4:3 aspect ratio. Either run the game in a 4:3 aspect ratio or use an updated executable like ioQuake3.

What does this mappack contain?
-------------------------------

- 14 maps (see complete list below)
- 4 custom skins for the Bones model
- 1 custom skin for the Crash model
- 5 custom bots

The maps:
- Eagle's Temple (rjldm1) by r3tina
- Renaissance (rjldm2) by r3tina
- State Prison 36 (rjldm3) by r3tina
- A Brush Too Far (rjlctf1) by r3tina
- Concrete Void (rjlctf2) by r3tina
- Concrete Void Redux (rjlctf2b) by r3tina
- Celestial Mechanics (ermap2) by Eraser
- Rusty Browns (ermap3) by Eraser
- House of Dissent (ermap4) by Eraser
- Bones' Basement (ermap5) by Eraser
- House of Dissent CTF (ermap4ctf) by Eraser
- McKinley's Vengeance (q3mckinley) by Eraser
- The Engines of Creation (eocintro) by Eraser
- Stronghold Opposition (q3strongholdv2) by SithLord
