Hi guys! As you probably guessed by now, this is jSoftApps and this is my sandbox contest submission.

You can download it from http://www.jsoftapps.com/files/Contest.zip

Unzip the file with 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org) or any other compression program you like.

Make sure to read README.txt when it finishes extracting.

Here is a YouTube video of the map (sorry for the low quality, this is the older version of the level)

A little update, this map has been re-packaged with hirato's packaging standards.
Also, there is a code to start the map in SP mode in case you forget to.
Please give feedback, I want to know what I need to work on.

Awesome!

The Packaging:
Pros:
- Nicely Packaged.
- Nice little readme.

Cons:
-----

The Map:
Pros:
- Nicely utilized assets.
- Nicely lit.
- Nice use of Rats.
- Reasonably scary.

Cons:
- No Mapshot.
- Incorrect proportions to my standards. I tend to use 3 cubes from a Gridsize of 3 for the height of a doorway, and 2 for the width. Comes out nicely in my opinion.

One of the better maps I've seen. Good work JsoftApps!

The fog was meant to give it a more "Halloween" feel to it. It was meant to be very foggy.
I know that the monsters don't hurt you, that is sauerbraten only.
The pumpkin quest isn't my idea (I know) but I liked it so much that I just had to put it in my map.
