scrumh1: Initial BETA for playtesting

scrumh2: Secondary BETA for playtesting
Widened and streamlined the internal structure of the bases.
Added many sniper holes.
Increased light levels of all internal areas.

scrumh3: First release to public (DoE) for playtesting and feedback.
Added point bonus for taking an arena from the enemy.
Added "Scrummage Imminent" sound.

scrumh4: Final internal beta test at LAN party.
MASSIVE retexturing and restructuring.

Slightly less Symetrical layout.

scrum: Final public release.
Added SCRUM! and CENTER signs in fortresses.
Created better scrum.txt file for initial game instructions.

The r_speeds can get a little high (right at 700) in a couple spots in the
colored arenas. I did everything I could to reduce them. r_speeds were over
1000 when I started trying to optimize the level. All other places never get
over 600 and is often WELL below that.

I wanted to impliment dynamic lighting (lights change color to match the
controlling team) but I never got around to learning it. I REALLY wanted
to move on to another project.

Simple Overview:
Work with a teammate to take control of the Arenas. You and a teammate must
stand on the touch pads SIMULTANEOUSLY in order to take control of an arena.
Scoring is based on length of time stations are held and their proximity.
The arenas must be taken in order moving away from your fortress. Your enemy
is moving in the opposite direction. If you lose control of an arena to the
enemy, you must back up and take it back in order to continue.

Once you control all three arenas, make a final assault into the enemy fortress.
One person must step on the pad marked "SCRUM!" inside their fortress. This
will give your team a bunch of points, reset all arenas and respawn both teams.

The Details:
There are two fortresses and 3 arenas. The arenas are named Red, Center
and Blue -- Corresponding to the fortress closest to them. When you step on
a pad in an arena, your teammates will get an audio cue requesting help in
that arena. This is the best I could do for those who don't bother to read
this file.

The Team Point system works like this:

Nearest Arena:
Hold the nearest arena to score 2 points per minute (1 every 30 seconds)

Center Arena:
Hold the center arena to score 3 points per minute (1 every 20 seconds)
Take the center arena away from enemy control to score 1 bonus point

Enemy Arena:
Hold the enemy arena to score 4 points per minute (1 every 15 seconds)
Take the enemy arena away from enemy control to score 2 bonus points

Enemy Fortress:
SCRUM! scores 20 points, resets the arenas and respawns the teams

There is health and resupplies available inside of each respawn room. The
resupplies are arranged in three lines inside the respawn room. It is only
necessary to run over a single line to get COMPLETELY resupplied (excepting
health). You don't have to run around in circles. This is to help get
people out of the respawn room quickly after a SCRUM!

Extra supplies are available in the arenas but only for the team that
currently controls that arena.

There is some health in the center arena and in the upper transition between
fort and arena.

The center teleportals take you back to your own fortress.
The teleportal in your fortress takes you to the center, but ONLY if your
team is currently in control of the center.
