":F Normal CTF for stupid" at http://akvariumok.uw.hu/ has one map in its cycle (Face.pk3) which uses skybox stolen from Quake II. Its readme also states that all textures are from UT.

I thought I was seeing things at first, but no, it was Stroggos filing the sky. Such a *blatant* theft. FRom id software, no less.  Angry

Well, that's one reason why we have autodownloads disabled by default.


Copyrighted textures from commercial games are always finding their way into 3rd party maps. It's especially more rife in Doom and Quake communities.

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.
