| Credits    :..All the great mappers out there that freely volunteer their time to make maps, tutorials, textures etc...
		With this community of free information one who knows nothing of mapping can learn to:
		Create buildings and rivers and moving vehicles and landscape and buildable objects and destructible
		objects and carryable objects and custom graphics and light entities and scripts and eventually....
		.... a map that might be interesting and playable.
		I never talked to any of these individuals but their info on the web is invaluable:
		2bit, Marko, Lowlife, Surface, Ydnar, Ifurta, Chavo, Drakir, Erik-Ftn, NIB, Roeltje, Spyjuice, Amethyst 7
		Further thanks to all the clans that I've been a part
		of or extensively visited or hosted or gave feedback:
		Southwest ET (SWET) (defunct), Free Team Players (FTP), Who's Gaming,
