Dante's Inferno - "Upper Hell" Version 1.0
"You have been cast down into the depths of hell and now it's time to pay for your sins". Dante's Inferno is a dark cavernous map with blazing fires, searing pools of lava, puzzles, nasty traps, secret rooms, demons, Easter eggs, unique Predator vision modes, eye candy, food for aliens, teleports, and much more. This map was designed to torment your weary soul if you are not careful. The map was designed for great battles between Aliens and Humans. Humans will be challenged right off the bat to stay alive because of the dark nature of the map and other visual distractions. It offers many great hiding places to ambush your prey no matter what species you choose to play. Dark gothic structures and hanging catwalks will offer you many chances to gain the advantage over your prey. To the careful explorer, this map has a great deal of hidden items and surprises to be found. Most traditional pickup items such as health packs and body armor have been put in ammo boxes. "Beware the evil monkey, he will bode no foolishness".
Note to servers admins: This map is also tunable "in-game"...if you are running a slower server or noticing lag because of a graphics
issue (non network stuff) then you can turn the steam and/or fire on/off by as set of secret switches located next to a skull on the floor
in the corner of the map near the round tower. You will have to look hard for them (by intent) and they will look like little rectangles.
It is recommended for maximum fun to leave both these setting to "ON".
