    Change List (from beta)
    ------------
    - Map scaled up 10%
    - Gravity decreased 5%
    - Interior spaces restyled
    - Sound effects and ambiance added
    - Bots now go for the powerups
    - Biorifle snuck in on top of the parked spaceship
    - Skybox darkened
    - The entire map is now above the killz line (1.1)
    - Skybox lighting channel is correctly set on both actors and lights (1.1)
    - 2 auroras were removed; mipmap streaming is now forced on remaining aurora (1.1)
    - all light influence was removed from the moon, mipmap streaming now forced (1.1)
    - music track was removed from the ambient category and now should respond as music in the game sound settings (1.1)
    - one sound effect that was out of bounds has been removed (1.1)
    - lightmap resolution altered on tops of towers (1.1)
    - moon was moved back up against the starsphere (1.2)
    - ambientsoundsimple_21 was removed (blamed for the crashing problem; sound effect was a glacier cracking and also sounded like distant weapons fire; Epic may want to check out that sound effect file since it's one of theirs; the sound effect was imported into the map's package file during cooking)(1.2)
    - all references to FX_LensFlares were purged and instead reset to target Envy_Effects2 (possibly connected to the crashing problem; for an unknown reason a retail package may have been duplicated into the working directory folder and used to store information about the strobe lights at the top of the antenna towers; the new red lights have had their textures changed to a different package; this is a possible editor bug when using emitters that display materials instead of textures)(1.2)
    - pickup light bug was fixed(1.2)
    - the lone skeletalmeshactor had its rigidbody settings disabled and optimization options turned on (1.2)

    Extended Description
    --------------------
    Following the success of the Morpheus project Liandri decided to construct a second set of towers deemed the Phobetor project. In Greek mythology Phobetor is a brother to Morpheus and ruler of nightmares. Liandri's goal is to recreate the same fast-paced tournament action on the top floors of Phobetor as what audiences have enjoyed on Morpheus.

    Installation
    --------------
    Unzip the ut3, upk, and ini file into C:\Documents and Settings\<YOUR_NAME>\My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Published\CookedPC\CustomMaps. When you load up UT3 this map should appear under DM, Team DM, and Duel. If you are using -nohomedir then I'm not really sure where the map goes since it wouldn't even cook for me under -nohomedir.

      Hate to tell you this but something is really wrong with this version ... it has crashed my UT3 and brought me back to the desktop two times in a row after about one minute of play. Man this is terrible because I really like what you did with the transitions .. you can really see through them for better shots now but they are not totally clear ... could you see if you can solve this before calling it quits for the evening.

      Edit: Yes it is 100% the new version .... I reinstalled the beta and was able to complete a 20 point match .. then I tried the new one and again with 1-2 minutes max the game completely crash ... *sigh*

        Yes, crashes me also.

        And why is that infernal music playing? The first thing I do with any game, is turn the music off, I haven't even heard any music in UT3, this map, (final and earlier release) and also some other map I downloaded, play music, even when I have the music off, how do I get rid of it?

                Incubus this and a few other maps you have to turn the ambience down rather than music. I guess people are still learning the UE3 game. Myself I havent made any maps so Im just grateful for others efforts but yerh flatwars is one i cant stand the music on lol this solution works for that too from memory

                    Ok, thanks, I'll try that when this map gets fixed up, can't remember what the other one was, but I didn't end up keeping it anyway. This one though, going on the earlier version I tried should be a keeper

                        @bigdragon, it appears that you took my advice! it looks like you have a much darker planet now from those screenies. i'll be checking the map soon. GG! As long as you reference the original morpheus in the map description i dont care what this map is called.

                              Indeed this level is insane ... man there are some amazing levels being created with this version of UT. Man I am really happily surprised at how many genuinely good solid levels there are. It is really fantastic for all of us in the community.
