MINUSES SPECIAL NOTE:
Dean has noticed that some folks have problems with textures when playing his maps. He has posted a pmpak.zip file at this location: PMPAK.ZIP, which should clear up the problem.

SUMMARY
Hmmm... I started playing this 3 map level-pack, and quit half-way through level 2, thinking that I was playing a MultiPlayer map-pack. I re-read the documentation and was surprised to see that it is intended for single player games only. These 3 maps are each huge sprawling levels with some very interesting texture use. The look throughout is sleek, crisp, creative, and at times very high-tech. If only they played as good as they looked. These elements are completely unused: computer updates, secrets, goals, and messages. There as very few Strogg, and they are spaced so far apart it was strange to play. I maintained over 100 health all the way up until half way through the second map, where I accidentally ran into a laser. These maps do not play like single player maps. They seem like multiplayer maps, that had a few Strogg dropped here and there... and I do mean few. I really hope that Dean's goes back into these maps and spices them up, or that he begins work on a map with good gameplay. These 3 levels show you a glimpse of talent, that isn't being fully utilized.
