Extended description:
Ultimately the tournament is about being the best - the pre-eminent player, superior 
to all others, unequalled in skill.  Now the time has come for you to prove that YOU 
are the best.  It is time for unrestrained rivalry!

Author's Notes
DM-1on1-Rivarly was designed with the intention of providing an open map suited to 
intense battles between two players.  Rather than the hide-and-seek, flinch-and-shoot 
gameplay common to one-on-one maps (not that there is anything wrong with that), I 
wanted to make a map where the players can see each other most of the time.  This 
makes DM-1on1-Rivarly similar in style to a rocket arena map.  It is for this reason 
that there are no instant hit weapons in this map – it would be way too easy for a 
hardcore player to own the map (therefore making for an uncompetitive match).

Instagib, low gravity and last man standing matches all work well with DM-1on1-Rivalry.  
It is also possible to play the map with up to four plays, but expect an intense and 
frantic experience. :-)

I made a conscious decision to cap the number of polygons and effects in this map to 
ensure a high frame rate on a wide range of UT2003-ready computers.  But at the same 
time, create a visually interesting environment.  If your computer runs the original 
UT2003 maps well, the DM-1on1-Rivalry should run at a good frame rate.  The emitters 
and some decorative static meshes have their bHighDetail set to true.  This means that 
if the world detail in game (Settings>Detail>World Detail) is set to normal, these items 
will not appear – further improving frame rate.

I am sure that someone will wonder about or question the validity of the lighting of this 
map.  From the beginning it was my intention to create a mid-day environment – full of 
light, thus making the opposing player easier to see.  As it turned out, the strong 
sunlight and the high ambient light settings helped reduce the frustrating shadows that 
SMs cast on terrain when the surfaces of these two objects are co-planar.  At the behest 
of one of my beta testers, I did trail a ‘sunrise/sunset’ lighting scheme – low angled 
light to create long shadows – but this only exacerbated border shadows between terrain 
and SMs. So the ‘mid-day’ lighting scheme stayed!

Please enjoy :D
