Misc. Author Info       : A bunch of folks who aren't around anymore?
Description             : 20 maps which failed to make the cut for the last
  ZDCTF map pack. Sometimes for good reason, often
  simply because the maps never got finished. Also
  included are alternate versions of two MP3 maps.

  Designed to run as either a stand-alone PWAD, loaded
  after ZDCTFMP1,2 & 3 or with the anthology version -
  4CTFEPIC.


Additional Credits to   : Everyone who helped me dig out all of these maps and
  gave me permission to use them. Big thanks to Rygrass
  for setting me out on this project by hooking me up
  with some old ZDCTF betas. Big thanks to all the
  playtesters and bugspotters.
  
Extra special thanks: AlexMax, who provided me info, every single archive
  he had, a few MIDIs and also his blessing.
  Worst, for his invaluable help in getting 'Under
  Siege' working right.
  TUD, for helping solve issues with 'Under Siege' and
  getting me started with GLDEFS (so dynamic lighting
  is correct under OpenGL rendering).

* Play Information *

Game                    : DooM 2
Map #                   : Map 31-52
Single Player           : Player starts only
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : No
Deathmatch 2 Player     : Player starts only
CTF 6-12 Player         : Yes (Or 64 players for Sol)
Difficulty Settings     : Not implemented
Zdaemon DMFLAGS1/2: 21636/524288 (pretty much just your standard ZDCTF
  server config + enable teamstarts too)
ST settings: The usual STCTF settings - I'm not really up on ST
  configs.  Just make sure that all those screwy air
  dynamics are turned off, or the jumppads in maps 39
  and 47 may end up broken.


* Construction *

Base                    : New levels from scratch
Build Time              : Several years really
Editor(s) used          : WADED, Doom Builder, WadAuthor, LView Pro 2004, 
  DeePsea, XWE, Wintex, etc, etc
Known Bugs              : This pack was designed to work harmoniously with
  ZD/STCTFMP1-3.  It does, however, have some ambient
  soundclashes and wrong skies on some maps if run
  with  4CTFEPIC.  Why the hell were the sounds even
  renumbered in that pack?!  x_x
  Catapult on map39 looks weird on 4ctfepic.
  Nightmoves won't run on current version of ZDaemon,
  and it'll still lag older machines at high res.
May Not Run With...     : Anything other than ZDaemon and Skulltag

* Cyber's map notes *

Some of these maps I barely had to touch, others required a little more work
before I could include them here.  In a lot of cases it was simply a matter
of replacing the old keycard/particle fountain things with the CTF standard
flags and team starts.  Sometimes I was required to add orientation to those
player spawns too.  Or there were minor matters such as finding a fitting
sky or appropriate MIDI for a map, fixing sprite/sound clashes, etc, etc.

The following maps required a little more love:

The VG Museum - Snowbro had me knock a couple of secrets out of this.
He confesses it was his first ever map.

Deimos Reloaded - Made base colours a bit more intuitive and had to find a
  new MIDI for it as Ghosts of Mars was using the same tune.

Caliginous - This map was only sorta half-textured, so I continued it in the
     direction I thought it was intended to go.

Twin Temples - This also had no real texturing. As the map was based on a
       Quake map of the same name then I gave it that theme.  Also
       had to tinker with the items here too.

LaCTF - This map was in a sorry state, with linedef-thin walls and all kinds
of hideousness.  Kicked it into an almost respectable shape.

Nightmoves - Da_maniaC was making this as a CTF version of a UT Jailbreak map
     but never finished it.  It was passed to Earthquake to do so but
     that never happened either.  ManiaC and I ended up passing it
     back and forth recently and really rocked the joint.  Although
     the basic map and all the cool detail is his  ;>

L.A. Rumble - This map was just one complete side, I had to mirror it.

Sol - Fixed the two teleports which had the same tag.


* Updates for zdctf_bsides_ version *

I originally considered this would be a throwaway pack, but people kept on
playing it and there were so many things that needed fixing or could be
improved on, so I went and did just that.

Technocracy - tore out a crapload of vertices and succeeded in eliminating
      some of the slime trails the renderer was throwing up.  Not
      perfect, but way better than it was.

Congestive Issues - Varied texturing a bit more, added lighting and arrows so
    it's now easier to orientate after a spawn. Introduced
    'Automap console' to get around the replacement of that
    pickup sprite.

Pier Pressure - Massive retexturing to aid in coordination. Fixed some water
areas that would not kill and a broken teleport from plasma.

The VG Museum - Switched the places of the wrong-coloured trees. Enlarged the
directional signs and placed a few more of them.

Subway - Added signs to make it more clear where flag is and which are dead-
 end areas.

Deimos Reloaded - Fixed texturing anomalies and also tidied up the map, which
  had been littered with non-fatal errors.

Under Siege - Central plasma lift now more stable. Catapult should work!
      'Airsupply 0' means players will now never 'drown' on ladders.

Caliginous - Widened some passages and made the way around a bit more obvious.

Yalexa - Fixed sector flats which were corrupt, improved base colouration.

Twin Temples - Incorporated more directional signs, gave teleport lifts their
       own tags (so they don't move together).

Icecap - Rounded-up lift speed to make it smooth. Marginal texture work.
 Fixed miscreditation of map.

LaCTF - moved soulsphere to the 'centre' of the map.

Nightmoves - Da_maniaC fixed something small. Map still won't work on
     Zdaemon until 1.08.09.

JACKTHERIPPER'S TWO LIMBOS - Smoothed out plasma lift speed. Fixed textures.

The Last Stand - Fixed texture alignments, added weapon to huge open outside
 area, increased speed of 'the lift from hell' and removed a
 really nasty secret which would block off a whole route.

L. A. Rumble - Widened main staircase, made falling from buildings instantly
       kill players, fixed some texture alignments and thing placement.

Inner Limits - new to this version. Nobody ever plays 4ctfepic so this map
       needed some more love!

Sol - messed with reigning the map in a bit, but ultimately EQ and I decided it
      would probably never be truly playable in any form, so it stays the same.

Ghosts of Mars - Fixed some colouration issues and this map now gives automap
 to players by default, every time they spawn.


Mappack should now be 100% compatible with Skulltag (with the correct server
settings) and includes GLDEFS for replaced sprites.
