02/12 12:45 - No Man's Land (2) by tekros
One of the best things about Quake 3 is the ability to mod the game and
create assets such as custom maps and models. This empowering of the
creative genius inside people does not always produce amazing results.

After reviewing Quake 3 maps for almost 15 years now, I have...
02/12 12:45 - Rustgrad by Hipshot
Hipshot has once again produced an
outstanding release. The architecture and theme is that of an abandoned
facility. It is medium sized and perfectly fits with 3 to 6 players.
Free For All and Team Deathmatch are officially supported, however it can
be played also as...
02/12 12:45 - Sector 9 "The Cytherean Outpost" by Kaustic
Originally built for the "Summer 2013 Mapping Competition" by Maverick
Servers - and won 1st place. I believe this version to be slightly
different (but this maybe wrong).

The map is both enjoyable and interesting, but to be very honest I am
surprised it won. The...
02/12 12:45 - Arena Gates by V1979
Another CTF remix by V1979. This time the
target is Arena Gate (q3dm1). Like the
authors conversion of q3dm7, this one
comes with different variants of remix, but four versions instead of
just two for q3dm7.

The first map has converted the outdoor area to the...
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 - 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...
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...
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 - Q3 Stargate pack source by Camel-XP
This is a developers pack and example release. Included is an example map file
and all that is needed to see how to replicate the Stargate teleporters from the
TV series Stargate.

You can also see working examples in
Camelot Castle / Sahra Catacombs by
...
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 - 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 - 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...
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...
31/07 14:00 - Lost Space by T-kölök
Tigs important note: This map will produce texture errors in other
maps. This is because the author has included (and possibly edited)
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...
31/07 14:00 - House Of The Rising Sun (2) by Malzbiertrinker
In the readme, Malzbiertrinker says what he had
in mind when constructing this release was a sacred structure, somewhere
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
klutz who dies
a lot from falling, you will hate this map.

The theme is that of a tall, old-looking church or cathedral. The lighting is also a
bit dark in some places.

In the central and only room...
09/06 12:25 - Unofficial Map Pack 2 by Various
Originally released late in 2002 but finally making its way to ..::LvL is
Unofficial Map Pack 2. A Q3A CTF map pack with support for Team
Arena and Threewave as well. The pack contains 6 maps and a bonus
silly map based on
Q*Bert.

All of the maps are rich in...
09/06 12:25 - Unofficial Map Pack 1 by Various
Originally released at the start of 2002 but finally making its way to

for Team Arena and Threewave as well. The pack contains 9 maps, 8
official maps and 1 included by mistake. The map wiz3 is a

09/06 12:25 - cs_italy for Quake 3 by OXOTHuK
This release is base on the Counter-Strike hostage map Italy,
originally by Glen Cooper in 2000. While the official Counter-Strike
releases of this map have gone through many visuals changes with each
game engine change, this release is clearly based on Counter-Strike 1.6....
26/04 03:25 - Alliance CTF Map Pack 1 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 contains 28 levels. All of which can be played with or without...
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...
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...
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 - 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 - 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 - 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...
