Has anybody ever heard of this map?

I found it on my own server the other day. Suspect it was added back in 2008 or 2009
when afCore put several hundred SP maps on it.

The thing has a file date of 10/24/1999. File size 1,666kb.

Can't play it as it has no player starts apparently.

Is it possible it is used somehow by some other SP map? Is that even possible?

Yes, it is the flyby outro of the map pack "One day in the life of ... " by Chris Burgess from 1999. The map pack can be downloaded at oldunreal.com ( singleplayer maps -> oneday.zip )

Yes , it is possible to have a map without playerstart, if a Teleporter from the previous map teleports directly to a teleporter into said map. The second map of the pack (NOON.unr) also has no playerstart. Having no playerstart is a bad idea because loading a save game will crash Unreal. Using the autosave (the automatic save at the start of a map) still works though.

This map is funny because it could have been EASILY a playable one instead of a cutscene. Wasted effort.

Well, I better move it back into the maps folder.

Players can vote for it with mapvote for a nifty way to restart the server without
them having any idea what is going on. LOL
