"L-Fire CTF Mapping Legend Tony 'Hafhead' Hafner: "I was cleaning up my Quake2 directory and came across a file mysteriously named 'tbfpre.bsp'. I had completely forgotten about my 'Tubby Bomb Factory' that I had been working on when I stopped doing Quake2 levels."
"Samurai Castles by g1zm0 was part of the original Q2CTF L-Fire Map Pak beta release, but was removed from the final release after g1zm0 decided it needed a lot more work before he would be satisfied with it as a map. It ended up taking another 8 months before making its final entrance in the Q2 world, just before Q3 appeared on shelves. Out of all the L-Fire maps, it is the only one that has been ported to Q3, and by the original author. It is also the #1 played custom CTF map, and has just been voted into OGL's map pak (only one of three to make the cut). You can download the final Q2 version and the Q3 verions at Team 3's website (and be sure to go vote for the Q3 incarnation over at Lvl)."
"This was one of the most intense maps I had ever worked on. Mainly because it wasn't a solo task but created from the beginning with L-Fire. Believe it or not, this actually started out as Force Ten. But 87 revisions later it doesn't resemble it very much. This is by far my best CTF map to date, and I have to thank L-Fire and the YYZ beta testers for all their input."
