ss_shortcut - CTF w/ Security
By: Daniel "SuperSumo" Gleason

Standard CTF with security lasers.
If you cap the flag your team gets
10 points.

There are 4 hidden sumos on the
map that you can get to without
spectating. Try to figure out
what they do. :)

Description : This map actually started as a little screwing around
with lasers to see if I could make some cool looking
ones. It turned out into a full map. Funny how that
happens. I really spent a long time on this one,
doing about 7 playtests to make it perfect. I hope
you like it.

You can play the map like a normal CTF map, but if you
get the security down, there is a shortcut to the flag
room. (Hence the name). There is a timer on the lasers
to tell you when they will come back up, which is a
very nice feature thought up by my roomate Jesse Soy.

| Credits and Thanks |
\--------------------/

Clan AGT, for being my home for over 3 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed
playing trillions of matches with you guys. Through good and bad, it's
been awesome.

All the people that playtested with me. I forgot to take screenshots
of the rounds, so sorry that I can't list you individually.

Shtoofa, for helping me a lot with suggestions and running the playtests.

Defrag, for telling me about the NULL texture. That's really helpful!

TFC, even though your engine is retarded to map on and really limits
how much detail I can get into maps, I love playing the game so it's
cool.

You can use ideas from my map, but I would like it if you emailed me
about them, cause I would like to see how they came out. :)

If you distribute my map, please include this file also.

If you rip my map shoot yourself, because if you emailed me nicely
I would probably have just sent you the rmf.






-----------------------------------------
---------- SPOILERS BELOW!!!!! ----------
-----------------------------------------

















































If you find all the 4 sumos, use them as buttons.
It opens a door outside (clearly marked with a
huge "SECRET" above it). Go through the teleporter
and push the button to give BOTH teams quad
for 60 seconds. :)
