12/10 10:45 - Faces of Quake by r3x.theCat
A remake of the Unreal Tournament map, Faces. The readme states that the map
was designed for CPMA or VQ3 (standard) gameplay. I plays tested in vanilla Q3.

When I first spawned I noticed two massive towers on opposite ends of a
floating, rocky, wasteland area. The...

This is a developers pack and example release. Included is an example map file

12/10 10:45 - McSarge's by cityy
Rustic, twisting hallways that look like they have been patched and repaired
over their entire life. An environment so richly detailed it is hard to believe
it is software technology that is almost 15 years old pushing polygons to your
monitor.

This is what happens...
12/10 10:45 - Day At The Villa by Kaustic
A small Mediterranean themed map. The gameplay is pretty good, but could be
better. You may find yourself playing for much longer than you realised. The
visuals however are a little lacking. Brush work is simple and blocky with large
steps, flat walls very little integration...
12/10 10:45 - The Longest Fall by r3x.theCat
Here we have yet another CTF remake of Q3DM17. It is basically two
Q3DM17s, with one mirrored and connected via the railgun platform.

The railgun platform, now the center of the map has become home to two BFGs and
a quad damage. There are also two launchpads on either...
30/08 03:10 - The Very End of Reality by V1979
Here we have a nice looking and somewhat well played map. It is a remake
of the classic Quake 3 map, The Very End of You (q3tourney6). The
main difference from the original is the whole map is
symmetrical. There are the two flag bases opposite from each other, not
unlike...
30/08 03:10 - Temples of Retribution by V1979
This release is consists of two maps, both a CTF redux of Temple of
Retribution (q3dm7). These two maps share a lot of the original, but
the first version is larger and is a more complete copy than the second.

Although the author has added support for FFA and TDM, this is...
30/08 03:10 - The Yard Of Stone And Steel by Anthony Tullo
Another modified version of The Longest Yard (q3dm17) - of the worse
kind. Graphics are dull and blunt though the frame rate drops in the lower
areas. Gameplay has decreased in fun over the original as the openness and
jumpiness of the level is damaged.

Fun for a...
30/08 03:10 - Ironwood by Pat Howard
Ironwood is a small, Medieval themed CTF map that has been nicely
textured. With more than six players the gameplay is very chaotic. It is
recommended that you play only with the suggested amount.

From the readme, this map's theme is a medieval castle in the mountains...
31/07 14:00 - Lost Space by T-kölök
Tigs important note: This map will produce texture errors in other

shader files from the original game. This is always the wrong thing to do. If
you download this map, please remove it or change the PK3 file...

in a rocky, volcanic landscape with hazardous atmosphere. And he gives a
nice story about ancient people sacrificing prisoners of war to pay
tribute to...
31/07 14:00 - Eigelstein Pain by Ryzzdorf
Eigelstein is a small "box"-style map. If you are a

bit dark in some places.

26/04 03:25 - Alliance CTF Map Pack 2 by Various
In the early days of Q3 there was a CTF mod released called Alliance. This
was, and still is, a highly professional mod that adds a lot of interesting
game play focused features to CTF matches.

This release is the second Alliance map pack and contains 13 levels. A number...
26/04 03:25 - Ziggurat Tomb by sst13
The style of most of the default Quake III Arena maps can be described like a
mix of Gothic and futuristic tech. But if an author wanted to create a really
Gothic arena, it would look rather like Ziggurat Tomb by
sst13.

The map's layout corresponds to Bouncy Map...
01/04 03:20 - Battlezone by Tigger-oN
A high realism, small level with a focus on fast game play. Suits a 2 to 4 player DM and 2vs2 Team DM games, but Tourney matches are also a blast.

The level of detail is way beyond anything you would have seen in any other map. It is a shame the environment is relativity small,...
13/02 05:20 - Aqua Dock by Rust7
After reviewing The Grit Halls, I was
excited to see what else Rust7 had come up
with; he did not disappoint.

This small-to-medium map is good for FFA with 3-6 players, but is also
great for Tourney. This is a very nice indoor map, which is very...
blue. It...
13/02 05:20 - cs_assault for Quake 3 by OXOTHuK
cs_assault for Quake 3 is a compact DeathMatch arena wrapped in
an industrial township setting. The map consists of 2 main areas, a wide
yard enclosed by crafting and storage facilities, filled with
containers, road segments and a few vehicles. The second area is a
...
13/02 05:20 - The Grit Halls by Rust7
The Grit Halls (r7dm1) is a rather nice-looking map that makes
use of simple textures. A medium-sized map with a good flow to it. Best
for 4-8 player FFA, but is also perfectly fine for Tourney as well.

The item placement is well-balanced; the MH - accessible only by...
13/02 05:20 - Circle Of Death by sst13
Circle Of Death by the German veteran map maker
sst13 is a 6-8 players capture the flag map
relying on a clean and immersive Strogg fortress theme. Each team's base
consists of a 2 story flag room with a more separated basement
underneath. The basement areas are...
05/01 03:55 - thephhortres by
I must say, this is one hell of a map! Hopefully, the multiple
moaning spirits within this map won't haunt me in this ruined church
map, created by a novice mapmaker, .

Throughout this map, the complicated yet highly detailed
passageways and paths wind through this...
05/01 03:55 - Pitbull by fKd
For a medium-small arena, this is quite an intriguing map. Created by
the famous mapmaker fKd,
who was made popular for his amazing maps such as
Null and Void and
Undergod, he says in
the file's readme that this map's simple stuff... nothing too
fancy.
...
05/01 03:55 - ThornDuels by Rust7
An older CTF map, created in 2009 and sat for over 430 days on the
map queue! The
Readme says it needs
128 megs or less, which was meant as a joke since this map is pretty
small to have more than 128 megs set up.

The map is pretty much a box map, which is...
17/10 01:55 - Railgun Arena by Arcan
The name does not match the pk3 name but this did not prevented me to fire up
this map and give it a chance.

I was not happy with what I saw. The real name
of this map is Railgun Arena and it is a huge box mostly with water on the
bottom. There are loooong ramps on...
17/10 01:55 - cu3dm1a by cuirass
This (possibly) Mayan-themed map is quite fine. Although there is not much
complexity in the brushes, several things like the leaves hanging from the
beams create a very nice atmosphere. What I've found a little bit too much is
the brick wall texture. In some rooms like in the...
17/10 01:55 - The Courtyard (V2) by Martinus
First of all, I'd say I had troubles with Hunk memory allocation. Set to 1024
and map runs fine. This info is missing from the readme file or the author
simply never noticed the issue.

The theme of the level is that of a futuristic city with heavy castle
influence....
17/10 01:55 - Cloister of Unnamed Colony by Rust7
According to the readme this should be a long abandoned cloister, which has
been left to rot by the Earth colony several years ago and was just discovered.
Those few lines made me really curious about what it looks like, how it plays
etc.

And here comes a massive...
