Medium map set on 3 broken tower with water all around them.

The idea and the looking of the map is really good, but the layout inside both flag base is a bit hard. I had hard time finding my way at first. The jumpad are set to high, and it make you hit the opposite wall quite fastly. Also, I didn't like that water that hurt you around the base. New textures and shader. However, I love the detail made on the brush shape and that there is water on the flag base. However, since the only way between both base are the jumpad, it is maybe too easy to defend both base. Also, some part are cut by clip insteed of a normal brush. Like if you hit insivible wall. No good.

A good one to add to your collection.

* Playing Tips *

- When you roof jump use your strafe keys to alter your flight path slightly. That
way you won't land in the same area each time you jump.

- Don't drink the water, in fact, don't even touch it! :-)

- At the bottom of each stairwell in both bases you'll find some armor. The bots
never use it because they are either very brave or very stupid.

- Any metal mesh you see can be SHOT through. So, although you can't walk through
it take advantage of the fact that your weapons will still hurt whatever you can

- Yes, you can actually hop around the side of the jump pad to run around on the
roof. No, I'm not rewarding anyone for doing this so understand that's why you
can't run to the rear of the building.

-- The Story --

Stardate 52622.51: As planned we achieved orbit around Janus4. The Federation had
left much behind in the wake of the flood. Why they left so much is unknown. We
suspect recent Borg activity forced a quick pullout. The Fed is certain to return
so we must claim our salavage quickly.

Stardate 52623.95: Surface scans indicate lush green grasslands, magnificent
oceans, and dense jungles. Its better than Earth ever was or will be. Most of the
crew and myself beamed down from the 'Tears of the Moon' to begin collecting and
cataloging the goods. There are many things to take here. We even found a bunch of Starfleet uniforms. Saxon threw on a captain's uniform and started giving orders
as a joke. Despite the beauty of this planet something feels wrong. The remains
of this old training academy seem to be falling away more quickly to the floodwater
than I would have expected.

Stardate 52657.54: I can't contact the 'Tears of the Moon'. Saxon claims the
generator explosion was an accident. We are on reserve power now. Saxon is still
wearing the captain uniform he found. He's starting to act like he has earned the

Stardate 52667.42: Saxon has started a mutiny. The crew is going mad. They're all
putting on the Starfleet uniforms we found. It appears they are dividing into two
groups using what's left of the training barracks as bases. I've given up trying
to contact my ship. It's clear to me now that the flood was not the real reason
the Fed left in such a hurry.

Stardate Unknown: I found a quantum burst. Its like a personal photon torpedo
launcher. I'm going to show that bastard Saxon whose in command.

* Construction *

Base                    : None
Construction Time       : About a month and a half. Development started in
			January and was then suspended until my CTF competition
			map was finished.
Build programs          : Standard GDK tools v1.2
BSP Time 	        : 57 secs
VIS Time		: 138 secs (fullvis)
LIGHT Time		: 2624 secs (lightextra)

Known Bugs              : Bots rarely use lower passage access but they will
			spawn down there so don't think you're safe. If you ask
			a bot to follow across the broken building in the middle
			they will do so correctly thanks to three nights of me
			pulling my hair out until they did. :-)
