For those of you who are new to this mod, it's a map built off of FFA5 with a ton of add-ons, goodies and new areas. Some things are out of place still, and many things are still being worked on. In case you're thinking, "It sounds ok, but I don't think I'll like it," let me direct you to a slightly-old YouTube video so you can decide for yourself.
The video is over 2 months old - a lot has changed since then. mostly small things here and there. And PLEASE, DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE CLAN LOGOS!! They were there for testing purposes only! In case you're curious about it, it will be possible to put YOUR clan's logo in the map when it is complete. The logos are to show the options. And don't worry, the downloads listed below are logo-free. :cool:
So! The reason I'm posting this. What is needed to bring this project to its best is CLAN beta testing. I've personally gone through the ENTIRE MAP for months getting everything just right, including weapons placement and many other things....but some things I know just aren't right. Specifically, I have the CTF version in mind, because I've never played a CTF before in my life.
So, if anyone is interested in test-driving this map for us (the development team), we'd be very grateful! I may be joining join a server or two, if I see one on it.

We'd be more than happy to hear any comments, suggestions or questions about it. As of now, there are three areas that are unfinished, but the main portion of the maps is complete. Let us know what you think of it! Thanks to all who took the time to read this, and have fun if you decide to try it out.
Wow, thats a really good improvement of Taspir, I'll be checking this out when its released!

"One of the most interactive maps JKA has ever seen, You can down-size, up-size your model! Mazes, traps, bars, fun for the whole clan! A clan-based map, anyone would love."
Well.....it's not intended TOTALLY for clans. People not involved with clans can play on it without noticing anything, because the bedrooms are nestled away in the bottom of the blue building.
I take it you noclipped and got into the control room. Or else you're super good with secrets and found the way in. >:P Did you get into the teleporter hub?
Thanks for your positiive comments on it, though. Any ideas to improve? There's a lot that can be done.
One bug has been found, and fixed. I'm not going to fix the downloads, though.
If you try to start single player, the game crashes due to hidden files that were accidentally placed into the pk3's music folder. Ignore it, it's been fixed. Just delete the pk3 when you're done testing. :]
There was a few missing textures, like the lava and the bottom of the tubes, but other than that i think it looks ok. I also loved the slide, good fun :P
There were missing textures.......???????? I KNOW I fixed that!..........Did you download the map-pack, or did you download them individually?
Found the error. Turns out there were several old versions of the shader floating around! Here's a download for a shader fix, so you can see it correctly:
Thanks, looks much better now. :)
ARRRRRGH.....my brother was testing it today, and showed me several bugs that I knew I had fixed. When I looked closer, I realized that I had somehow grabbed old, OVERWRITTEN files and uploaded them.........I don't know. My computer has been doing a LOT of things wrong lately, like randomly crashing explorer.exe and failing to relaunch, among MANY other stupid errors. I'm gonna repair my installation of Windows, after re-uploading the files. That irritates me so much, to spend that much time getting everything right.....and the upload gets messed up. I'll post again when I have results.
Note that a major secret area, AND the bedroom area are both locked off due to these errors. So this update will be worth it.
