[ET] map news --- El Kef 
Saturday, 30 September, 2006, 23:49 - Enemy Territory
Marko has released GameArena test version 5 of El Kef! He's modified the SW version of the map to improve comp play.

GA test 1 release notes:
removed the first allied spawns and moved them in the courtyard, under the big woodden shelter
changed axis respawn time to 30 seconds instead of 25
added a balcony overlooking the flag courtyard to replace the house with narrow windows that was almost a dead end for allies
added a second team door for the allied forwar spawn. When the main gate blows, this provides a larger exit for allies.
enlarged the main gate access for allies at forward spawn exit. Half of the building doing the corner in that map section has been deleted
removed detail in the different critical paths to reduce congestion
removed the dynamitable wall to the command post. It's now replaced with an open door way
fixed a couple of graphical bugs & glitches
moved the ladder just above the flag, to make jumping down easier
enlarged the axis last spawn door way. It was extremely narrow, only allowing 1 player to run out at a time
moved the trucks the docs have to be taken to. It's a little more forwards now, which means it's no longer in the allies' way when they exit the forward spawn
removed the defense door to the docs. This should highly weaken axis defense

GA test 2 release notes:
texture bug fixes (e.g small doorway exit of old indoor allied spawn...)
ammo & health racks in first courtyard moved over to the opposite side
enlarged doorways after the forward spawn to make access to all buildings easier
fiddled with trigger entites to make the picking up & dropping off of the objective easier. This should avoid players needing to jump on the table / truck pick up / secure the objective.
fixed "spawning on top of each other" bug. This was just a lack of spawn entities for allies :)
improved FPS !!! (finally lol). There's still a bit of work to do on this but it's gradually getting better & better \o/

GA test 3 release notes:
fps improvements

GA test 4 release notes:
added split access to the CP for allies

GA test 5 release notes:
fixed graphical glitch found by Blackjack & Syd
