This is great! There is only one thing missing: church mice :)

I especially like all the nice details in the church, though the center is rather bare.

What changed in R2? (Don't answer that question if it is obvious, let me look myself ;) )

The changes in revision 2 were relatively minor:

* Modified rain parameters (made it start higher and spread across whole map).

* Added sign for church.

* Fixed 3 bad UV texture maps (1 on church, 1 on wall and the church's bell).

* Made candle flames kill tanks.

* Made chains for chandeliers and cross drivethrough (less likely to get stuck now).

* Increased outer barrier size to extend to map limits.

* Enlarged _shockOutRadius to 80 (33% increase).

The revision you are referring to was done in Revision 1 :wink: I may have to add phantom zone flag to get the proper sound effect for that one.

It's cool. Maybe there could be a WG so then I can get up on top of the church? :roll:

I can't... I'm not so good with jumping yet (I don't use mouse, so I don't have much control).

You can use wings to get to & climb roof, or you can climb a close tree and jump from it on to the roof. Not much to do up there though.

Louman you've done it again, this map rocks!

I hate to be critical though, but on the server with this map I noticed that one of the variables were "_drawSky 0"

This is not a good thing, older graphics cards (ones on MAC OS X i've seen anyway) will spew on this, they'll draw whatever is around the no sky area instead of drawing black. Not nice. Could you use "_skyColor black" instead, thanks ;)
Could this tank perhaps go a little bit faster, so it's not being overtaken by stationary objects.

I know! You need a ? block, three mushrooms, and a rabbit on the roof...

Waistless: I enclosed the entire map (including sky) in a black 'box'. I have never seen the issues you are referring to or heard anyone complain prior to your comment. Of course, I do not run an older Mac machine. :wink:

By not drawing the sky, it increases fps on the map a fairly significant degree.
