Description : 4v4 TDM map for Quake 4


This map is a BETA release. That means that it is not final and that
I am open to suggestions and feedback. The best feedback you can
provide is an explanation of what you like and do not like about the
map. Please don't tell me "you should move X item to Y position" -
I will ignore this. Instead tell me "I found it really easy to run
from X to Y and won some games because of it". Other than that
all constructive comments welcome.

Note that there is currently an issue with Quake 4 and custom map
support. If you have a custom map on a server, any connecting clients
must have the map or they will fail pure checks. The fix for this
(addon.conf) is currently half-baked and unworkable. When Quake4 is
fixed, this problem will go away.

- Notes -

This map isn't intended to be my magnum opus, the best TDM map
I can do. That would take too long. It seems to me that Quake4
is in dire need of more TDM maps as soon as possible. Hence this
map, which is intended to be a basic, standard team dm map.

The layout is new but hardly innovative - plenty of
rooom-corridor-room to keep the performance tight. The visuals
are basic and functional, again keeping performance high. If by
some stroke of luck the map becomes insanely popular, I'll be
prepared to revisit the visuals at a later date. Right now, this
map is "better than nothing".

r_lightdetaillevel settings are supported, according to drach's
standards - 9 is ambient only, 5 is a fast compromise, 3 gives most
lights and 0 is full detail.
