I've decided to go ahead and release all 4 beta maps (though 1 isn't quite finished and another needs some file organising):

Volcanic Isle
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 3 Team CTF
- Special: Lava Sea (damage)
- Recommended Players: 9-18
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: This is a good all around CTF map. Especially with a few weapons such as the Tornado! The lava will kill you FAST though. Don't get in it if you can help it.

CTF Moat of Acid
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 2 Team CTF
- Special: Acid Moat (damage)
- Recommended Players: 8-16
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: This map lends itself to strategic defense as the best form of detering the flag carriers. The acid kills at a moderate rate such that you can cross the narrower portions with about 50% health loss.

CTF Poison
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 2 Team CTF
- Special: Poison River (damage)
- Recommended Players: 8-16
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: The river is crossable not at the bridges, but you will lose about 50% of your health. This map is a good one to play, but I'm not too happy with the coloring of the sky. I may fix that in an update.
- Special Note: This map does not use the standard "poison" directories. I will release an update that does use those dirs sometime. I have no idea when though.

DM Caves (beta)
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: Standard DM
- Recommended Players: 4-16
- Placement: Unknown (I believe it is end of DM list)
- Notes: Slippery (no, I haven't changed that - its a cave people! Just like the moon is low grav, this place is slippery!). Good all arround DM map. New skybox.
- Special Note: I haven't had time to get back to work on the rockfall problem so I'm releasing it as is right now. I'll fix the rockfall in a couple months when I get back to this map.


Previous Released Maps:


CTF Galaxy::
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 2 Team CTF
- Recommended Players: 8-16
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: The center pit is hard to get out of. Don't get caught.

CTF Pyramids:
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 4 Team CTF
- Recommended Players: 16-20
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: This map is based on a Mayan pyramid. The map can get cramped with too many players.

CTF Ring:
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 4 Team CTF
- Recommended Players: 16-28
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: Bring night vision gogles . Its a good, open map for plenty of players.

CTF Spiral:
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 4 Team CTF
- Recommended Players: 16-24
- Placement: End of CTF list
- Notes: There is a grove that runs between the upper plateu and the flags and inner lake zone. Its not that easy to get over. The only easy passage point is at the flags...but that one is only one-way. I recommend going after the flags from below rather then on the plateau.

DM Basin:
- Size: 1024x1024
- Type: 4 Team DM (with team specific spawn points).
- Recommended players: 8-20
- Placement: Approximately 50% of the wat through DM list.
- Notes: Its a good open map for general play...

DM Mayan:
- Size: 1024x1-1024
- Type: Standard DM
- Recommended Players: 4-12 (teams and no teams)
- Placement: Approximately 50% of the way through DM list.
- Notes: This map seems to me that it will get crowded with large numbers of players. Based on a Mayan Pyramid.

Note to those that did the Beta:

Changed:
- CTF Volcanic Isle
(fixed map name length [Island -> Isle] and fixed island spawn points so no tanks would show up there. Also added a couple spewers.)

Not Changed:
- CTF Moat of Acid
- CTF Poison River
- DM Caves

Needed changes:
- CTF Poison River to fix file calls to standard poison set (I created this map before I standardized the poison/lava/acid map sets). Also to fix coloring to be a bit less dismal.
- DM Caves to fix rockfalls (ug...I am dreading this)

Final Maps (unless an error shows up with the release):
- CTF Volcanic Isle
- CTF Moat of Acid
