Normal CTF stuff mostly. Everything is well marked and there is only one cap point per team
this time around. The secondary goal is to destroy the control center with a detpack.
There's a switch near the flag that'll open up the control center. Also there is a second
switch inside the control center if you get trapped. Scoreing is 15 points per flag capture
and 7 points for each destruction of the control center. There are a few items in the map
that can destroyed with detpacks (you figure it out). The sign usage covers the respawn,
flag, and control center only (the critcal goals). Personaly I think signs promote the
pussifacation of the TFC player. In short take the 5-15 minutes it takes to learn a new
map like us old timers do. Don't try too respawn camp because not only will you die you'll
look stupid at the same time.
Textures - I only bummed two textures one from Uncle Bruce (the resupply sign) and the
other from Hellface (the three tube light "m_light1"). If you see a texture that
you think came from somewhere else look again you'll find it doesn't quite
Sounds - I use three sounds from the "USS Darkstar" single player addon the other two
sounds are home grown.
Skybox - that is BASED on the sky used in the "USS Darkstar" single player addon but
I had too do some major editing so it'll work with this map correctly.
I couldn't have my trains and low r_speeds at the same time damnit. (huff)
Lord Bishop - For all his hard work on the train that didn't make it into the final version.
(I did use his kickass tracks) His testing and feedback help was nice too. He also ran
the lighting program on this map as my system doesn't quite have enough ram too get the
VorTeX - For his feedback info and spotting the voodoo1 framerate problem. Also he made a
texture that didn't make it into the final version. (sorry)
P.S. -- Go to this site and download the "USS Darkstar" single player addon.
I used some of their work so it's only fair to pimp their work in return. If you
are a map reviewer that going to slam this just for being CTF based remember
that CTF is the very heart and soul of TeamFortress (i.e. you're missing the point)
