Description        : This is a CTF conversion of Base32, intended for
                     12-24 players. It has been completely redesigned for
                     CTF play. This map is much smaller, has a completely
                     redesigned layout, and includes some new rooms.
                     All weapons, health, and ammo are balanced with
                     respect to base location. DM starts are kept away
                     from bases.

                     The map is _not_ vis'd for transparent water, but a
                     vispatch is included (expctf2.vis expctf2.dat).  To
                     learn what a vispatch is and how to use it, go to

		     All weapons except the Lightning Gun are available.
                     The Lighting Gun is omitted because of discharging,
                     and because of the large relative advantage a player
                     with a low ping has with the weapon, as compared to
                     weapons that require anticipation, such as the Rocket
                     Launcher.  There are cells on the map, since some
                     mods use cells for other things.

                     No powerups (Quad, PoP, Ring) are available.  Only
                     skill will let a player take a flag from a competent

                     For a fuller explanation of any of these design
                     decisions, see the Expert Quake design document:

		     An Expert Quake specific entity set is available for
                     this map.  Since EQ has less powerful powerups in 
                     place of the Quad, PoP, and Ring, we will include 
                     those items in the entmap.
