Description             : Here is my *first* Quake II map...
                          It was specifically designed for GL Cards, like with 
                          Diamond Monster 3D (Voodoo 3Dfx), without such a card
                          the level ill look plain indeed. 

                          A previous version of this map ran under Quake.
                          I have completely reworked the map textures for 
                          Quake II, added colored light sources and a "secret"
                          passage, better item and weapon placement. Overall
                          it's a bit darker than the Quake beta version.
                         
                          Even though this is my first Quake I/II map, I have
                          built 6 other maps for Duke Nukem 3D, so I'm not a
                          complete newbie :) No thrills like teleporters, doors,
                          platforms or other gimicks used for 2 reasons: First
                          off most of these mess up the game flow (and I hate
                          that), second I haven't gotten into that just yet :)))

                          This map can be played on 

                            AEon's Quake II:      131.220.96.124
                            (on Linux Server soon 131.220.96.41)
                         
                          If you find anything really lacking or have some level
                          building tips for me don't hesitate to send in an email
                          :))

Additional Credits to   : id, Mikey (QUAD) and some of the fluXes (M7, Atom,...) 
                          for testing the Quake I/II beta version...

                          Quake II (I deparately hope with more practice 
                          this will be a lot faster to do... phew...) 
Known Bugs              : Central room, aligns textures weirdly, not sure what's
                          up here. (Texture choice M7 would say is a bug ;)
                          Even under vis "-level 4" there are "missing walls" in 
                          the map if you run the level under non-GL... 
                          so don't do that ;)   
                          
* How to use this level *

Make a "maps" directory in ../quake2/baseq2 and copy the level into it.
In Quake2, bring up the console and type in "map AEcyrena".

To start a deathmatch game either start it as usual and type "map AEcyrena" in
the server's console or start a multiplayer server from Quake 2 and type
"map AEcyrena" in the console.

Description             : Here is my *second* Quake II map... finally ;)
                          It was specifically designed for GL Cards with
                          Voodoo Chipset, without such a card the level
                          will really look plain. 

                          The base map I used is Daniel Rammelt's aka "Super Slimer"'s
                          <danr@es.co.nz> and was called shake2, a Quake map. It 
                          was one of the first and for sure my favourit Quake 
                          DM map. So I asked Slimy ;) if I could use it... the 
                          answer was yes and so I stared converting it to Quake II.
                          Note every wall was moved at least once, new textures 
                          where applied, and an extensive outdoors with tubes 
                          created... but most of the "house" is shake2 as we 
                          all loved it.
                        
                          Added 2 doors ;) and an elevator, some ladders, 
                          no teleporters, bit of current in lava and ambient sound... 
                          I am finally including a bit Quake II specific stuff... I 
                          still think game-flow is the most important point in 
                          DM maps and 2 beta tests seemed to show that too.

                          Using best q2rad option "-extra".

                          This map can be played on my Linux Server:

                            AEon's Quake II:      AEon.astro.uni-bonn.de:27910
                                               
Additional Credits to   : id, ^AP^ a trusted friend and alpha/beta tester, without him 
                          I'd have given up building this map (too many darn qoole 
                          bugs had to be surpassed)... I would also like to thank all 
                          the other trusty beta tester on IRC #quake2.ger (Obi1998,  
                          Trigger, Cannibal, F-N-S, Climax, BioCHip ...). And M7 for
                          the discussions that helped me overcome (sort of ;) some 
                          engine specific limits I was not aware of.

Base                    : Shake2.map by Daniel Rammelt <danr@es.co.nz>
                          converted to Quake II and greatly enhanced.
Build Time              : Weeks... over a time period of 3-4 months...
                          (embassingly long time in any case)
