** Game Rules **
Objective: Enter the enemy Base and make your way to where their Flag resides in the flag room. Grab it and bring it back to your Battlements. Place it on the raised square to Capture it.
Scoring: 10 points per Capture.
Other Notes: Flag carriers drop the Flag when they die. Dropped flags return to their Base after 60 seconds.
** Additional information **
My third attempt at a decent CTF that is playable in a clan situation. This is a much smaller map than the likes of NML3 and Domination, and the focus is on playability rather than an overall 'theme'. There are two direct routes to the flag, and numerous ways to get into the enemy base. The battlements have been designed to allow you to conc jump straight from one base to the other, to make for a more open, attacking map. The underground tunnels allow access to the enemy base from below, although a detpack will be needed to clear the blockage at the underground entrance to the base. I have included boats in the underground tunnels, these don't really offer any tactical advantage, but they are fun to play about with ;o)
The flag is situated high up at the top level of the base, with access from either the stairs or the lifts. Both teams can use the lifts. The map contains three respawn areas in each base. Two respawn rooms are team specific and can only be used by the base owners, whilst the third area can be used by both teams.
Thanks for downloading, and have fun!

League version ammendments:
This version came about due to the dreaded 'lift bug' and it's affect on clan wars played on this map. People would tend to get stuck on the lifts, making them easy targets. This would effectively not only close down one avenue of attack, but it would also offer an advantage to the other team (until their lift broke down to :oP). The new version includes a switch operated 'air lift' which lifts the player to the upper level by a jet of air. The new version also includes modified grenade bags in an attempt to reduce spamming.
If you have any comments you have regarding any of my maps, please contact me at the above address.
