This has to be one of the coolest maps to come out in a long time. I remember when Asty made the Tron skin and he was really hoping someone would make this map, or that he could get around to making it himself. Asty's skin is included with the map. So it's like, a complete Tron thingy. But what would really make it complete is if the author could've somehow skinned a ship to make it look like one of those things ... y'know, I forget the name of them ... those weird claw things in Tron.

Anyway, this is not a map for those who have a weak system. And by that I mean, you need to have a decent video card and enough RAM to handle this map. My FPS was fine, though it was choppy in some areas. I can't imagine playing with 15 others on a server, but I might be able to handle it if I dropped my resolution and stuff.

I simply cannot express how beautiful this level is. I really felt like I was thrust into the world of Tron. There's an arena that's perfect for dueling, ships on two different pads so you can fly around the map (which is huge) to check it out, or y'know, kill stuff. Oh, and then there's like, this tram that goes all around the map. I didn't notice if it stopped at certain places or not, but it does take you to a bar on the other side of the map. Speaking of the bar, I did notice one itty, bitty, tiny little error. One of the walls at the bar you can walk through. :/ Anyhow, the bar is just lovely. Everything is. I just love the textures used for this map. The whole map has this faint glow about it.

If you're looking at the screenshots and you're just confused because you have no idea what Tron is - leave your computer right now, go rent the movie and watch it. Sure, it's dated. But it's a wonderful movie. It was the first of its kind. Great job on this map ... I can't wait to see more from you guys. :D

1.Well first off, a very special thank you to Disney for creating such a wonderful world to play in.
 And always remember, Tron, and related materials are property of the Walt Disney Company.

2.I want to thank the guys over at Hoschies gaming group for all the beta testing on this map. 
They have been very helpful with this level and many others we have thrown their way in the past
for evaluation.

3.Onobi Foondus' scripting abilities and experience have taught me much, and
his input actually helped mold this map into the visual experience it has become.

4.I've included a beautiful skin made by {ICoP}Astyanax, which he made back in the jk2 days. And it is 
a must have to truly enjoy the level. Just install per the instructions he has included in his zipfile. It
has many colors to choose from and bot support as well.

This map is a representation of my appreciation for the movie Tron created by Disney/Buena Vista in 1982.
That one movie changed the way we looked at special effects and the nouveu cinema that was just coming
into its own at the time. Before Tron no movie had ever gone to the lengths they did to acheive the look of the
film. After all of these years I can finally do my ode to Tron, to express just how much this movie affected our
lives as gamers and movie goers.  It's old school but its's really fun to play in this world. If you haven't seen 
Tron, do yourself a favor and go rent it, you might be surprised how much you like it.

This level is in no way endorsed by Walt Disney or Buena Vista, and is a tribute to the creativity of the folks
at Disney. Keep doing what you do best, making dreams a reality.

This is a very large FFA level with many different areas to explore and a few secrets to be found as well.
Being that it a large out door level we all know how crucial FPS is. Well we give and take but we can only
do so much with a level as unique as this one is. But if you look and find the secret areas you will find a 
few great areas to duel in with higher FPS. This level is eye candy, plain and simple, its a museum of sorts
full of artifacts from a movie from the old school days. Just another trip through the warped mind of an MCA
mapper. Have fun!
