    ===================

    THIS MAP IS CURRENTLY STABLE ENOUGH TO BE PLACED ON SERVERS, BUT IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR ROTATION.

    THIS MAP WILL NOT LEAVE ALPHA STAGE UNTIL ALL STAGES ARE COMPLETE.

    My freaking god, has it been that long since another release?

    Well yeah... I got pissed at the people who kept on bagging me and my map.

    But I'm back and motivated! :D

    a4 marks the milestone 2 stage; I consider it a milestone as I worked hard to optimize the map to stop
    using the "big box" method, what better mappers consider to be bad. Many other major changes have
    occured as well.

    a6 marks the milestone 3 stage; I consider it a milestone as I reworked the ridiculously tiny and campfest style stage one cap two.

    a7 marks the milestone 4 stage; I have now added a lot of ammo/health packs, replaced the "pipe zone" with a tunnel which is much shorter and redone the rock walls with displacements instead of the non solid props. The texture was integrated with the Scout update thanks to arena_watchtower.

    Decompilation of my map is NOT allowed. Using objects from my map, whether in part or whole, is NOT allowed. Please give the ENTIRE zip file when distributing, that is,
    including this readme.
