Like most Sniper War maps.. this one has the objective of sniping as many people as
possible. But you also have to worry about the pole. Get your flag on the pole and
then try to keep the other team from putting theirs up there. For every 20 seconds
that your flag is up on the pole, your team gets a point. Also, the player who succeeds
in placing the flag on the pole gets 3 points.
Textures - I took some of the textures that were already in the valve wad but didn't have
their counterparts in red or blue and changed them in photoshop.
Skybox - I made this using Bryce 3D.. one hell of a nice program. You'll notice that
the sun in the sky pretty much matches the light on the ground :)
BUGS: In order to nullify the ability to get over onto the other team's deck, I had to
put in some clips brushes.. you might run into them if you jump certain ways
off of the pole.
Lord Bishop - For all his help in the areas of motivation (read: nagging) and keeping Z
Factor alive while I was out of comission for several months there.. He's
ADSquirrel - For setting up the playtest and getting people to test it. And for offering
suggestions... and for joining Z Factor :)
Bob - For letting us playtest on his server.
Playtesters - A big thanks to the 3 people I just named plus Mike Arps, Rick Arps,
Rick Carder, S3aWolf, T-DOC, Ace, LT and Pup for helping me playtest the map.
