SOME INFOS:
This is my first released single player level ever - but don´t be scared. I already made some levels
for "Eternal Doom" and some Quake 1 and 2 ones. 

"INVICITY" was started in 2000, when "Doom2000" (now released as Daedalus) was slowing down again and
all Quake Projects of Team TNT were aborted. I also lost interest in Levelbuilding and only recently 
(after Daedalus) I discovered the file sleeping on my HD again. Off course at this time it only weighted
about 200 K and was nothing but the starting platform and the first area. Also it was just grey in grey
and without any detailing.

But for making a long story short - the bug bit again and now finally the first playable version is 
ready for testing. So grab your shotgun and give it a try.


SPECIAL INFO:
ETERNAL DOOM IV is coming - let this map be an appetizer for the things to come. It´s far to small for being a real Eternal-Level, but I hit the mark playwise I think. :)


GAMEPLAY:

Well, all in all it´s just straightforward dooming I was aiming for, but some hints will help you in the
more crowded areas.

	1. They are some autosave spots included in the map. They aren´t there without a reason. :)
	2. Sometimes it´s better to let the monsters fight it out by themselves
	3. NEVER feel save when backtracking
	4. Use the windows to avoid loosing orientation
	5. Sometimes it´s better not to take an item, because it probably will spawn some trouble. :)
        6. They are only 2 secrets right now - some areas are prepared but not yet ready, so don´t bump
	   your heads wolfenstein-wise. :)

SPECIAL THANKS:

	Paul Schmitz - 	my mentor, who helped a lot again during the scripting problems 
			I discovered while building.
	Ty Haldemann - 	for the first hints
	Rich Nagel   -	for the yet to add score :)
	TEAM ETERNAL -	for the great times then and still the best TC around
	TEAM TNT     - 	for giving retres.wad to the crowd - those textures are a great inspiration
	Ralf Sauer, Lutz Schulz, Hans Lepak and every other tester who worked through all the 
			crappy versions prior to this release....
