Existing bugs          : Some pickups on the top level don't make a pickup sound.
                         I've tried deleting them an adding them again but nothing seems                              to work.

Overview               : The map seems to run fine on my machine, but is very demanding due 
                         to the hi poly count....I tried it with 16 bots and the fps can 
                         drop below 30 in heavy combat but still remains playable. Hopefully 
                         Epic will address this problem in a future patch? 

Story                  : This is the worlds first underwater geothermal powerprocessing                               facility , because land based power facilies are tapped                                      out and the solar power plants are on very low production now with                           all the pollution and global warming effects. From the central                               chamber you can see through transparent supercompressed silicon to                           the haunting depths of water above you. The water pressure is so                             great on the exterior shell of the facility that it is impossible                            to keep it from leaking. There is dripping water and small flowing                           streams around that eventually all drain to the lower levels, which                          have 6 inces or a foot of water at any time. In order to stay ahead                          of this, we  have to channel all the leaks to a central                                      sub-corridor to be pumped back out of the facility with huge water                           compressors....dont get caught in the powerful and unforgiving                               propwash of these babies....
                         The smoking green carbon-sulfer lamps are the only current light                             technology available that work correctly under the immense                                   pressures at these depths, they put off a foul oder but you get                              used to it after a few weeks. They are also very bright, but at a                            trade-off of very high energy usage. During the hours of peak                                energy consumption by the world above, the carbon-sulfer lights                              will sometimes shut off for a while so that maximum energy pulse                             transfers can be maintained. The small biological blue lights, that                          are generously scattered around the facility, become the sole light                          source available during these times. They dont use any electricity,                          but they arent very bright either and it gets a little erie down                             here in the dark...its just something you never get used to.                                 Occassionaly the brilliant flash of the surface bound energy pulse                           transfers will scare you death too, they are kind of pretty once                             you get used to them, you can even see static discharges and                                 electric arches jumping across the metalic stucture for several                              seconds afterwards if you pay attention, but dont get too close,                             I've lost more than just a few forearm hairs after the release of                            one of those immence charges....     

                                                                      Story by,

Thanx to all the beta testers your comments and suggestions were a big help.
