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 - 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 - 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 - 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...
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....
05/09 04:45 - The Ancient Place by Kaustic
An eclectic collection of large spaces comprises this release. A very
generalised Egyptian theme is a little out-of-place for the
architecture.

The gameplay can be interesting and very enjoyable in parts of the map, but in
a lot of the map the you will be simply...
05/09 04:45 - My Real Home ++ Super Edition by Rust7
Instead of the cliche giant maps
we have seen in the past, we now take a look at something new. A Giant's themed
house in a cartoonish world where the players are not size of an ant or even a
mouse, but rather the size of a cat.

Combat can get very hairy in a map...
05/09 04:45 - Scummymap by Scummy
As of late we have been seeing a bit of a comeback for ye olde Gothic Style
maps over the new techy, texture-loaded maps. This is one of those levels and
has some interesting properties too.

First off, the level is riddled with traps to make it more interesting. If you...
13/07 13:40 - Shivers by nyoshk
Shivers is constructed with a vertical column layout with some areas
that extrude from it. The geometry is somewhat complex in the sense that
you are jumping from walkways to platforms. You have to watch your step
in this map because you will find yourself falling down a lot and...
13/07 13:40 - The Cave of Blood by Rust7
The author of this map mentions that it was his first ever release for
Q3A (back in 2006) and to be honest, it shows. The map is like a
collection of random ideas that are mostly just poorly executed. The map
shows many technical issues like double doors that are not linked,...
13/07 13:40 - Survival by Eraser
Survival has been made for the EntityPlus mod and is required. Unlike other maps that have
been made for this fantastic Single Player mod, the experience is closer to an
arcade style DeathMatch. Bots spawn in progressively harder waves in a
medieval themed arena. You even a life...
13/07 13:40 - City 1 by KRAFTWERK2K1
This map is not your regular Quake 3 map. It is designed to look like a
city street complete with shopping mall. A wide variety of custom
textures are used to bring a convincing real-life look and feel to the
map. Various posters, including those of real life movies line the...
13/07 13:40 - High Speed Graffiti by fKd
Visually this CTF map is absolutely gorgeous. There is an abundance of
geometric detail that shows the love and care with which this map was
crafted. Texturing is excellent, in it's monochromatic theme. Color is
limited to the red and blue trims, lights and detailing that...
29/05 01:40 - Solar - AEon's Edit by Hipshot and AEon
First thing I realized when I entered the map is that it looks really
nice. Good textures, details everywhere, custom shaders. The custom
jumpads with fan and wind effect and the teleporter which is water
flowing from a pipe are a nice touch.

The place looks like...
