[RE-RELEASE] ALEXGDM1 "By Alex Gorshkov (RIP)"

He was a russian mapper, best known for a participation in the RCBP maps. He also made a dozen dukematch maps back in the late 90s.
One of his first maps, ALEXGDM1(1998) still stands out. It's a mall type of map (like E4L3), and it's a pretty big one (despite the title, it's also a single-player map). I think that the best way to remember him is to play this map again.

I remember he send me some of his older maps back in the RCBP days, but I can't remember the titles. But in memory they were average at best, i.e pretty amateur staff. Since his AlexGDM maps is the only ones that was mentioned in the txt files, I guess this is the only maps he wanted to be known by.

Googled his name - he also made a map called AGStreet in 2009.

No. I first encountered him when he joined our russian community group (at the well-known social network ) back in 2008. I never met him in real life, but we chat a lot while we worked on RCBP's. Somehow he don't visit our group very ofthen, and eventualy his profile was closed since 2012. I never cared about the guy, until replayed that map a week ago, and tried to connect him and his close friend had told me about his passing. I don't exactly find out what it was, but it seems like the heavy smoking was the reason.
