Description	: "an old arena in space" - the remake of CTF-Niven '99


this is the remake of the old unreal tournament map ctf-niven. It was one of my favourites in UT99. Good for a fast intense match with up to 8 players. I tried to use as many ut2k4 content as possible. The round corridor meshes had to be done custom.

I tried to stay as close as possible to the original ut99's layout. But it should not look like an outdated simple copy.

so I put it into the space and stole a rotating skybox of one of the other ut2k4 maps. Anyway - as this is a remake, the layout and gameplay issues that the old map had are the same in this map. 

weapon pickups are put on the same spot as in the original map. I replaced the razor pickup by another minigun pickup. it didn't make a lot of sense to have different weapons in the bases anyway like it was in the old version.

I added a full walkway leading all around the upper part in the center to make this part more interesting. This is the only major change to the original layout. 

I tweaked the light on a LCD monitor. It looked a bit dark on an older monitor.

I didn't spend a lot of time on testing the bot navigation. There are some assault paths, jump spots and so on in it but I am not sure if they all work apropriate. 

everyone at Perception who had a look and made suggestions. All the guys who replied in the   alpha release in the atari forum. And last not least r@yden for his comments and suggestions done a while ago.
